LIES came to feast today
upon sun bleached bones
I rode a bicycle across dust
as swords cut the ankles
of my sweet freedom
Mother called for me today
I saw her face a stranger-be
my tears crumbled her soul
and in the dirt I ate my forgiveness
nothing to kill or die for
I imagined what could have been
And my hope is for some day where
we can join as one and be love

    Love these lines: “my tears crumbled her soul / and in the dirt I ate my forgiveness”. Very powerful.

    Hi Bejamin…I often thought that therein in those words should have been the title of this poem. Poets write to alleviate the madness of their emotions. I am always on a thread between here-and-there and when I receive such replies as yours, well, it pulls me back toward Terra-firma. Thank you…I have a drink that is waiting and I could never reach it from ‘over-there.’ 😉 (just kidding..maybe…?) ~ Phil
