Truth

Poem By Andrew Hussey

A garden of macabre delights,
through a window pane found looking
a young man pricks his eye.

Those blind in their fervor
and hungry in their love
for gold plated windows of truth
will find nothing
but the rot encrusted mold
of a reality colder than winter blast.

Faces of fortune grasp the fragile vase
and carefully carry it to the cliff
to shatter it
blind eyes seek fire to burn them out
rather than absorb truth
the will to truth you say?
the will to truth is built upon pillars of falsehoods

the child laughs in mockery of the wolf stripped bare
chuckles at the bleeding leg in the vice trap

Other poems of HUSSEY

Midnight's Dream

When the cradle of midnight settles in these bones
and the night envelops,
guards,
untilizes us to it's whims

The Desert Path

Put it in again,
this embryonic plague
calls me home and leaves me breathless
again.

Colors Of Spring

I feel like I can't draw
this sun through the eye of a needle.

This expanding merry-go-round of farce

Midsummer Day

Luminescent eyes peer eerily from above,
Oh, if this world-wearied flesh could speak
What tales you would hear.
From the blissful ecstasy of a midsummer day

The Bi-Leveled Deceit

This is of two levels,
That, on which land-bound fish tread,
And the other on which truth seeking eagles
Soar.
