The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!

Crushed

Leave a comment

The marbles in my pocketfall through the hole

and bounce and roll

down upon my feet

as they make their way

across the darkened street.

And they dodge the oncoming cars

weaving in and out of traffic

searching for a place to rest

avoiding to get hurt as they make their way across to the curb

in the storm drain they make their nest

Crushed

A heel ground into the pavement

Crushed

The heart that is absent

Crushed

It’s just a fragment

Crushed

The petals on your flowers

have all dried and gotten hard

they break away and float

down to the ground

but when they land

they never seem to make a sound

And they lay there

until somebody sweeps them up

off of the cold hard floor

and puts them away

and then you grow some more

but it won’t be today

Crushed

A heel through to the pavement

Crushed

The heart that is dormant

Crushed

It’s only prudent

Crushed

Little satellites

Pretty satellites

Floating off the stars and planets

Little satellites

Pretty satellites

Dancing through affirmations and regrets

Little satellites

See where the sun sets

Crushed

A heel straight through to the pavement

Crushed

The heart’s only sentiment

Crushed

It’s just stagnant

Crushed

The rain falls from the sky

cutting through this thick air

water so sharp

sharp as the tears

that redden our eyes

and numbs all our fears

And it collects in a pond

and feeds all the beautiful things

that paints us the pictures

that we don’t always see

you believe there’s only us

but there’s more than you and me

Crushed

A heel slammed to the pavement

Crushed

The heart that is abstinent

Crushed

It’s just a segment

Crushed

Crushed

A heel into the pavement

Crushed

The heart that is dependent

Crushed

It’s just that impatient

Crushed
