Tough Crowd

shes quiet at first

and doesn’t want to say too much,

I get her to crack a smile

and that just makes her tighten up,

I get her to laugh

and all the more does she put up a front,

attempting to deflect what ever I throw

I still hit it back, further busting her gut,

she regains her composure-goes stoned faced

and before leaving-looks me in the eyes, and says that she’s had enough

shadow approaching

there’s no way

to get away

when the better part of the day

has gone ahead and been slayed

not by the means of the mean/but by the time and retreating sun rays

now all that remains

is a little corner with no shade

and although never wanting to be burned/ I’ve grown accustomed to what I’ve paved

and the memory of what once was/now quickly fades

so I stand where I stand/and for no reason/just…. wait….

testing

with my right hand to god, i love you i do

I just become soul frustrated with the things, that IT is, that i do

how can I be a man who’s always seeking THE truth

if i myself have doubts in the things that i do…

how can I be so weak to my flesh

& turn around & be angry, because you’re in a similar mess

sometimes my prayers feel like, their wishes at best

but I know that it’s just somebody putting me to the test
