A World Asunder

Poem By Pensive Phoenix

I see a burning inferno
Just beneath the surface of the world
It’s clouded, reeling with their screams
O madness, it seems so real
Can you hear their crying
Can you feel them dying
Choking for a chance
While the leaders shake their hands

And the bombs that dropped at night
As we fight over modern vices
They hungered for a sympathy
They thirsted with a dignity
Teaching us our choices
So why do we have this government
Who uttered words they never meant
Who shook the hands that scratched their backs

What’s wrong with this place
Do we even know
Can we ever get it like it was before
I can see it in their eyes
The fear and demise
Standing in silence
Too afraid to even cry
Is it any wonder that it has all fallen asunder

A Mother's Lullaby

Sing me my lullaby
that I have never heard.
Swing me in my white wash cot
And chant away my dreams.

An Ocean's Tears

I could cry you a river
That turned in its ways
And pour you a bucket
Of a still glistening bay.

The Poverty Of Love

Let us confess that we loved one another,
And mourn not our trouble
As daughter and mother.
I had but loved you once,

No Marks

Still memories do patrol me,
Keep me awake at night.
Lulling in the shadows,
Carting through summersaults,

Only In My Dreams

I would sail to the other side of the world,
If that’s what it takes
To forget your face.
I’d rather dream, than face reality.


I am a captive to myself
I let nobody in
I am an island on my own
No heart of mine has got a home
