Artistic Freedom’s Waive

They shall claim self-defense a joke

In taking acquisitionalĀ aim
Subject to defamation lies for protection
Behind the rub of tarnished legal cloaks
Nondisclosing their collective loud mouth
Whose soul remains forever sold
Alongside artistic freedom’s waive

It felt like magic followed me

Foreshadowing my youth
When I would trip upon this earth

And see stars coming to

An Abject Prayer

Posted in Poetry, Short Poems with tags , , , , , , , on February 19, 2019 by dustus

It’s not because she’ll tease me
Or make me wish I’m there
Trick my mind to thinking
Someone truly cares

It’s not the song within my heart
Or how she can’t compare
To any love I’ve ever known
Beyond an abject prayer
