    Poem Commentary

    Feeling a bit nostalgic....so....I thought I would revisit a blast from my past....crippled as I am by the foolishness of others....and the cowardice of myself....for simply....GIVING A DAMN

    The Ties That Bind



    What lives within the house without a home or dwelling
    How long until sanity is lost among the shades of hate and longing
    Grasping onto images that filter throughout the mind shivering
    Tasting the failure shown in the reflection of the eyes tormenting
    Forgiveness can't come to the one always consistently begging
    The body bleeding to accept the peace forever looming
    The shards of glass vibrating the silence in its breaking
    A cut so deep no surgeon can replace the shell it is wrapped in
    The voices in soulful cries outlasting the demonic yearning
    Surrender is imminent without even asking but wanting
    Reprieve growing in the fulfillment and joy in dying
    Forgive the gift of loving to be accepted not damning
    Relief ultimately granted for torching the strings once binding
    Body releases entranced for the final stop to sleeping
    No paths left for me to continue my marathon of running
    Stopped finally in gracious torment of the pain ending
    Can’t live up to the standard of the everyday needing
    Outwardly, strong the soul represents to the world barely living
    Weak at the knees the truth shines cleverly in paintings
    The spirit tired and spent requesting the relief always eluding
    Nothing left but to bang the gavel and sentence the soul to its grieving
