i can feel the brokenness
moving inside of you
it’s like a magnet
i need to hold you close and repel the fears
that rob you of your peaceful eyes
allow me to be your knight during those nights
when darkness comes to bring you wool
perhaps i’m so attracted to these cracks in your foundation
because i’m familiar with the void
and the depths it produces
when we lack the ability to avoid
i know you need a guardian
that makes you feel safe as you hide
let me provide some sort of blanket for your security
even if it may only be
for a short time.

why are we afraid
to use our wings?
why are we afraid
to trust our feathers? Continue reading Why?

how they have paintings
set up on the walls
and the signs that they have
randomly scattered around that say
“do not touch”
let you get just close enough
to send pulses that itch
straight into your fingertips?

guilt can consume you
filling the empty parts
peace dissipating quick
like a cigarette stick
until nothing is left
but a tray
devoid of ash
and full of blame.

pupils pulled wide
excitement cannot hide
unless kept behind shade
lenses or frames
a smile slowly spreading
bright as teal
true feelings revealed.

“Lets put everything into perspective….
Warfare is a way of life
Like waking in the morning
To raid the dresser
Or waking in the middle of the night
To hellfire and airstrikes
Constantly living under pressure
Are you stressed from everyday pressures
Imagine the pressures that they face
Wondering if their families will survive another night
Their fears like refugees
Unable to stay in place
I’m in my bubble
Off to work I go
Encased by the false projections
That the media wants us to know
Meanwhile someone is trapped inside the rubble
Surrounded by destruction and death
Chemicals attaching to skin and bone
Count your blessings
It’s all we have left”
Def Poetry inspired by Kanye West and his Def Jam Poetry piece titled Bittersweet! This relatable piece was performed by spoken word artist J.Bright Jr. and the premise concerns the complexities of love and learning to let certain things go.
