I Try

Poem By A.R. Brixton

I try, I, and I, we, always Try.
For I, have not a soul,
That yearns for the sky,
Mine, urges for fire.

Fire to burn in,
Fire to gaze at,
To warm, what coldness
Came upon it.

And so, I, always I,
Must not fear, nor death
Nor life, so are they
Quite the same

They, always They,
Keep pushing, to the limit
The poor beating heart
That can not, must not

Take the pressure
Of choice
Of decision
For I lack the will.

And I, always I,
Will not, not anymore,
Bear that weight
For I cannot.

And it so is,
And shall be,
For can it be
Otherwise?

The Poet Widows In Front Of My Eyes

The poet widows in front of my eyes,
And his are lost,
I blame the cruel world

Camera Obscura

to be in the unlit bedroom,
and watch the gleaming world outside,
is the closest one can get,
to understanding despair;

I Have But To

I have but to lament the slaughter
Of my deep dearest feelings.
I could not, I dared not,
Avoid such a death,

508

With poisonous smoke,
She exhales, fire from a mouth –
That kissed, has been
Kissed, and through madness

Seeking

open the gate
of wisdom and sorrow
for all those things you never tought about fate
and it's real,
