Requiem

The intolerable anguish
of recent betrayal
kissed your face
with a poisoned veil
biting skin
drawing blood
calling forth a martyrs flood

an excessive collection
of thorny lies
chained your laugh
to sobs and sighs
awkward dialect
awful taste
rendering all words to waste

but then
behold
when life seemed lost
and darkness took you in
beneath the scarry surface God
was grafting stronger skin
then with the gifts of time and truth
your dawn arrived intact
His light restored one hundred fold
what you believed you lacked.

Cause and effect

Imagine for a moment
imagine if you can
a normal
plain
polite
and sane
example of a man

now roll him in a blanket
and put him in a box
with cotton wool
bubble wrap
and seven solid locks

the odds are, I’d say, certain
the odds are, I’d say, high
that given time
his madness would
rocket to the sky

my point is short and simple
this story serves to show
that given grievous circumstance
insanity will grow.
