Pieces

Standard
I fit somewhere
In your puzzle
You fit somewhere
In mine
Missing pieces
Of each other
Somehow connected
By this place
In time

Closed.

Standard

I will

 leave you

closed-signalone.

I’ve pushed 

too much.

The door

was open, 

but it’s 

better shut.

There’s not  

much in common,

so it’s better off .

The fact is

we both

won’t budge,

and that’s okay.

I won’t 

be crushed,

and I’m not 

someone to

hold a grudge.

Just remember, 

although I 

won’t be 

in touch,

you’re still 

loved.

speaking ill

Standard
speaking ill
i hear it
i hear people
mock on
attacking people
for their differences
their looks
their behaviours
their beliefs
gosh, i've even
done this wrong
gone along
with the throng
of voices
using choicest 
words to stab
backs and hack
someone down 
to size
how unwise
for the rest
of time
let me be
resigned to be 
apart of the
the joke
to be the
one picked on
and poked for 
in better company
it would be
to be heaped
with the hurt and
be unrightly persecuted
than to unrightly persecute
so forever let me
execute kindness 
and exude love

Truth Seared

Standard

What if truth
was not
relative
or speculative?
What if truth
was absolute,
real and
revealed?
What if truth
was to be
upheld
and not
rebelled?
What if truth
was not
something we
neglected,
abused or
refused,
but rather
something we
would want
to choose?
What if truth
was love?
What if truth
was joy?
What if truth
was peace?
What if truth
was patience?
What if truth
was kindness?
What if truth
was goodness?
What if truth
was faithfulness?
What if truth
was gentleness?
What if truth
was self-control?
What if truth
came in full
perfect form?
What if it
was here?
Would that
be a big deal?
Would you have
ears to hear?
Or would your
conscience be
too seared?

Once again

“Windflowers” ~John William Waterhouse, 1902

With you a† hand

I begin †o loosen

Like †he wind

I pick pa†hs unchosen

I flow and floa†

My hang ups soften

Blown slowly over so

Unconcerned abou†

What’s lef† unwoven

I’m just †oo moved and

You’re unforgo††en
