BITTR POETRY I

Content Zen

I think…most of us just want to be happy.

Some of us know this.

Some of us don’t.

Some of us want the money.

Some of us want the dope.

To paralyze our fear.

To make us forget to hope.

Some of us want the fame.

Some of us want to be sane.

To fit in with them.

To be open with our sins.

Some of us want sex.

Some of us want love.

To heal our child wounds.

To mend our pain since the womb.

Some of us want to live.

Some of us want to die.

To eradicate our lies.

To live no more in disguise.

…………………………….

I think…most of us just want to be content.

No more restlessness.

Just zen.

January 24

All I see are clouds

on a sunny day

I’m always gone

far somewhere away

I look both ways

possibly too much

I think what my heart is carrying

is getting to be too tough

The fear almost lost me

but I found myself in time

God saved me

he showed me a sign

I think I found hope

when i thought all was lost

The sun came out

when I was surrounded by frost

The Storm

God is gracious

God is kind

God is with me

All the time

Before I wake

And when I dream

God is there

Watching me

Box

These tears I cry

Have felt some pain

In this cage

I’m pushed to insane

I barely stand

With thorough fear

Nail in my hands

Jesus are you here?

I see you pray

Through a crack

I can barely breathe

I’m in the sack

I can’t hide now

Privacy gone

I’m with myself

Feeling forlorn

Are you there?

Can you hear me?

Are you there?

Fighting for me

The air brushes your face

But I can’t breathe

You feel the wind

While I suffocate

When will I go

And where will I stay

Who will love me

And who will pray

Why did this happen

And how are you here

You’re always there

And you’re always near

The snow falls down

Like tears on my face

The snow falls down

Like my own condemned race

I’m losing it

I can’t go on

I’m dying inside

My cause is gone

Why am I here

There is nothing left

Why am I here

Today I wept

Help me help me

I’m drifting away

I’m no one now

On my knees I pray

Paw-Love

Sometimes I forget

That I have you

The two of you

The both of you

If I’m feeling blue

I can think of you two

I know I’ll smile

I’ll feel alright for a while

I’ll let go of my sadness

And shed no tears

Because I know you’ll help me

Make it through all the coming years

Your song is on my mind

The memories remain divine

I call you lost lover of mine

There was no one like your kind

Nueve Mesas

Sometimes leaving is the only option left

Sometimes leaving is that open door that has watched you wept

Sometimes moving forward is all you can do

Sometimes leaving what’s holding you back is the best move

Sometimes saying nothing is a wise decision

Sometimes taking action should be your only mission

Stuff

I fill my life with stuff

to ease my pain

I fill my life with material

to increase my social gain

I fill my life with items

to stay sane

I fill my life with things

to make sure I’m seen

I fill my life with clutter

because it’s all I’ve ever known

I fill my life with junk

to avoid my void

I fill my life

to remain numb

Beyond this Moment

Money doesn’t make me happy

Achievements do not make me happy

California doesn’t make me happy

Titles do not make me happy

Job security doesn’t make me happy

Six figures do not make me happy

Attention doesn’t make me happy

All the vane is insane

All the faces are mundane

All the places become the same

What is my lane

What is my lane

Warped into the main

I fall into the drain

Must we all really be the same?

Timer

My hands are claws

My consciousness gnaws

I stack and stack

I break my back

I explore no more

I’ve become a bore

Life loses interest

Which day will be quickest

I lost my stride

My mind just glides

Which way was I on

I stopped caring @ dawn

Sweet 07

How easy it is to fit right in

Your loving arms always filled with zen

With a piece of fun

We had no clue what would become

What took place next

Was always the best

When I’m slipping away

A conversation makes it all okay

A sweet memory

Always of value to me

Finis

How does love turn to hate

How does curiosity turn to a debate

How does always being there for me turn to always late

How does endless fun turn to taciturn dates

How does fine china turn into paper plates

How do beautiful kisses turn into physical gates

How does going out of your way turn to complacency

How does being together turn to being without me

How does love turn into nonexistent empathy

How does love with maturity turn into love rudimentary

Sophistication gone

Manners disowned

The mask never on

To never arrive here is foreign

Carousel

How tied up one becomes

In the intricacies that life brings someone

Goals pile and pile

We continue to work tile after tile

The carousel never ends

It only stops and re begins

If one stops to breathe

They’ll just remember its time to plant another seed
