Bruises Shine

Poem By Patience

Derogate & vilify
Denigrate, stupefy
Peculate, ego heist
Facile judge
Shallow mind

Save yourself, sucker lie
Decimate, sacrifice
Rally fool, sermonize
Shatter soul
Bruises shine

My sky never fell for you
Darkness veiled the proof
A star is shining down on you
Lumen for the truth

The poison feather reminds you, you're alone
And that without its soft spot you'd have nowhere to go

Frozen in the searchlight, burnt from the glare


Weightened for him,
Aghast at beams. A weathered grin pierces through her.
And seeps through waxy heart his branding, conquering.
Electric serenity, claimed.


Some just enjoy discomfort
reconciling it as danger and mistaking it for risk
One day we'll all realize
we're begging for the pity, starving for a kiss

Break Free

You, of the minority
may oppose it fiercely
You, superiority
could learn to think more freely

Little Heaven

Rest in peace little heaven
As hell comes closing in
On the picture perfect resonance
Of trees and goats and skin


I'm stardust right now
Random sparkle
