humble

no sea to shining sea
these curtains will fall
like the Berlin wall
see a ghost cowering in the corner
I’ll be grind into dust
by the powers that be
but they’ll never take
an ounce of your true identity
oh my life
oh my soul
why have you abandoned me?
why now doubt
and turmoil
these thoughts coil

and make us

—humble

Lumps

Maybe I get more depressed than you think

you flutter those lids and i’ll be wafting away

say it like you thought it would matter

say it like you wrought enough armor

I’ll pretend that I’m listening

while we do a bit of soul searching

what kind of glue holds us together

does it weight us down like a fetter?

we can waste some time

rewinding cassette tapes crimes

and watch these sure hearted faces fade

but dial down on my fiery presence

I wanna open my heart and the floodgates

but I’m not sure how  to be brave

I don’t wanna avoid  this anymore

and be a double edged blade

you’re just drilling all these doors

and me with these breakneck confessionals

we  get used to lumps nesting in our throats

Relief

Fake it

until you make it

until you break it

all those pillars you built

that ground that you tilt

an inward sigh, a relief

a retreat

life’s essence is in the catch and release

inhaling and exhaling

letting go of all the excess

the inessentials

and grasping hold of enamored ones

and graveyard shift friends

tapping into the pulse of life

indwelling in imagination

finding that line

that only seeks

the well-being of all men

finding the source of all that is good

and leaving it  here to give birth

to more, more,  and more
