Poem: Over Written

Too many words wasted;
when only one will do.
In these silent spaces
between each dusk and dawn.

Rising blues crescendo –
Oh wait! I know this song:
I don’t matter to anyone
and nobody matters to me!

Wide open bedroom window
lets in the pouring rain;
Cats in the kitchen yowling
the bowls are empty again

Why should I even bother
to get up and out of this bed?
I don’t matter to anyone
and nobody matters to me!

Purple phone keeps ringing
all over the sodden floors;
Seems no one dared answer it
before the floors got wet.

My pillows do feel poorly
and barely hold up my thoughts;
Why is there no body here
when the party is well begun?

See how I swing to the rhythmic
throbbing of words inside my head:
I don’t matter to anyone
and nobody matters to me!

Poem: Proven

one plus one
makes more than was
merging into one
spawning ones
exponentially
unattainable

one alone
remains uneven
when rounded down
becomes zero
infinitesimally
describing me.

Poem: Cypher

I hear you
yet I cannot fathom
what it is you mean
scrambled symbols
broken zeitgeist zodiac
racing across the moon

this one says
yes I do
that one says
I don’t

neither either
here nor there
dare to speak
the secrets
that they keep

I see you
and still it’s true
that no matter all the words you say
it simply is untrue

Poem: Stripped

pulled back
one layer at a time
leaving bare
hidden treasure
and now
I indulgently need
to touch

Poem: Myriads

one speck spiralling
buzzing near my head
damned annoying bug

I stretch, I swat, I flail
failing to connect
and then it escalates

two specks spiralling
hunting for bare skin
then there is a third

and then the swarm descends
making us all flee!
