Feelings of Fear

©2017 E. R. Smith

A block of ice lays the head

Bites into the brain

Crams darkness like lead

Drives one insane

Evil is this blatant insanity

Fear the power consuming

Grave the battle, calamity

Heart-felt power dooming

Icy prickles spread down spine

Just in time to catch doubt

Killing hope of life divine

Leaving  bitter drought

My soul glistens when vaporized

Numb tears shed  its loss

Owning a head beaten traumatized

Phantom unseen touches toss

Quiet mind down and determine

Really, is it there?

Sane is it,  to house this vermin?

Tear now at angst’s snare

Unseat it from the crown

Visualize strength inside

Will Force to beat it sound

X-Gen worries easing stride

Years of prayers  Mighty pound

Zen reached  Love drowned sigh

Hopped up on the unicycle

cause there can only be one

Solo stunts hint, where you come from

Back and foreword trace a path around the mound

Hands in the air, eyes on the crowd

Revving up the speed, get ready for a flip

Run away skateboard had another trick

Coasted across one wheel, brought it to a halt

Threw that one right in the air, triple somersault

 

Hydromassage For The Soul

Adam’s ale cool soothe

H2O irrigate soul

hydrodynamic

moisten callus within mind

would that the universe douse

Makes Me Wanna Howl!

“Bennette, now you be a good boy and take care of the house while we run a quick errand.”  “You’ll just be all squished up in the car with baby Joey and the new puppy; now that wouldn’t be fun would it?”

I just stared and held my tongue and tail; people always do say how kids change the relationship.  You just stop putting effort into doing things together.  Eventually someone gets put out.

Outcast

The stones the builders rejected

were appeased by nature

with a vivid sign of blessing

Who dare now shun ones outcast?

pompous beware do not overstep

when God is redressing

A Bitter Taste

Spit taste, stuck on the middle of tongue

wash it away with new wisdom

Use a scraper if you must, angled to your freedom

Snatch bitterness from the palate

avoid swallowing to the soul

Make your mindset a better place

keep up this grooming goal

Brackish agony breaks one down

makes the face a neon sign

Misery will seek this neglected hygiene

stalk, follow until one dies

Too Exposed

Exposed

Exposed the texted racy word

meant just for a friend

Exposed the tweet in a trusted circle

retweeted again and again

Exposed secret emails sent to a cloud

but quickly erased from a drive

Hacked out, recycled by clever outcasts

for a lil cash on the side

 

Careful how you tell your tales 

more than who you tell them to

The spoken word can be revised 

video loops lifelong fools

Like passing notes in class

choose carefully your sender

Giddily dreaming of being famous,

when infamy is all we remember
