Swallowed whole

Her every word rides on the breath of disrespect and negativity,
infecting me like a virus, it spreads,
and slowly the life-force of my heart dims
swallowing my once optimistic nature
into darkness.

I come to a crawl
slithering like a snail,
destined to the endless tortures of her well aimed daggers.
I begin to think, that even death’s speed would be kinder
than enduring her heartless motions.

I used to be happy, I would smile, and could have fun.
But now, my every attempt
is cast in the tar of her selfishness,
and my contentment swallowed in the abyss
of her lack of appreciation.

It is here,
with these words,
I find a temporary escape.
Through poetic release,
through these keys,
for a moment
I can breath again.

The Fourth night you are the Stars

Oh, victorious fireworks,
cast from our Fathers pipes,
the Fourth night you are the Stars,
and the rest you paint in Stripes.

Your explosive lights and sonic booms
echo our Independence debut,
the commencement of Freedom and Justice,
and the meaning of Red, White, and Blue.

Every home in the nation
breathes the smoke of your glory,
hotdogs, parades, and barbecues
around bonfires and a story.

Oh, victorious fireworks,
Illuminated explosions in sky,
our heart beats with you,
on this day, The Fourth of July.
