Oh Won’t You Be My Neighbor

20130926-120304.jpg
I keep
my self busy
To
distract
the holy lonely.
I try my best,
Not to
think of you…

The itch
scratches at me
Like it’s my
one & only.
So like
an old habit,
I reach
for you…

The past visits
with
temptation
baring gifts.
Giving me
the feels,
Like I got
nothing better to do….

I sit and I stare
As I
adore you
At work,
You never
Look back.
Making me worry
what I mean
To you…

I look into
The mirror
Reflecting my
Thoughts
a bit deeper,
And no one
can prove
That they’re not true…

So like
A good
Neighbor
Who stitches
Dreams
& concepts together,
i can’t picture
Any sweater
That’ll fit me
Much better
Than you….

Reflection

Mirrors
Don’t lie.

Filters
Do just that.

Words
Any one can recite.

Our actions
Express facts.

Reflections
Sigh…

Accepting
Traps…

Truths hidden
often cry.

When our blurred images
Yell right back…

Reality Bites

She was ready for love.

Every night she prayed
& she cried for it….

He wasn’t,
she found out the hard way,

So he suffered
slowly
for it….

do your stuff

I know

we have

to try

but

sometimes

trying

isn’t enough,

the thought

of having

to try

sounds like

succeeding

maybe

just a bluff,

that’s why

from now on

im going to do

as if doing

was a gear

to life’s manual transmission

and the stick is stuck,

I just pray

what ever comes

in or around

my way

only makes me

quicker to respond

and even more tough…

to all those

doing….

best of luck,

if luck has nothing do with iT

then go on

and do your stuff

thrown away to the side

ive been so stuck

on moving forward

I havent even looked

to the sides,

foreshadowing

was out of mind

since I wasnt able to read

between the lines,

so comfortable

in my surroundings

I didn’t notice

the warning signs,

so now like

a collapsing mine

darkness falls

on to the blind,

leaving me

in total shock

yet not really

any surprise,

all I can do

is get off my ass

after my prayer

to the divine,

and ask

for grace

to bless me again

yet one more time,

im in the battlefield

of the unemployed

but still I chill

& wait on opportunity

to shine,

so even though

ive been thrown

to the side

the good lord

will get me UP

and on my grind.

WAR

My minds been filled

With the things that I’ve learned

But now my minds over flowing

With inner secrets now known

And there battling each other

In a quest for the throne

They keep going and going

And going back and forth

It’s really easy to go

With the things that all know

Then to take to take on a leap

Of untouched hope

 . . .

So once it sinks in

And the weighing out begins

Selfishness doesn’t want

To let go of the thin

Strand or a hole

That’s its own had to dig

Not an Inch or a twig

Is sparred or even split

So how can it go forward?

If neither wants to quit

I’m just stuck in the war

Till reinforcements come in
