Why Like This?

Poem By Dava Makiah

How come it's like this?
when words so large as love
are thrown around like piss ants
why do you do the things you do
which leave me torn between
living and crying?
How many times have i had this
conversation with myself and
found the answers there
nestled in my chest
and why do i shy away from them now
now
when you are shoveling threats
down the gutter of my last
attempt at
reconciling this relationship?

One Man Circus

So I never stopped loving you-not really-only got mad at me for not being able to make that leap of faith to you.
So full of me I can be,
with wires frayed and crossed circuits
you'd think I was a one man three ring circus:

Just Don'T Know

Sad the memories
in a lifelong conundrum
of yearning
I just don't know

Those Closer Things

Fine
OK
Goodbye,
be gone,

My Ears

Well it's so well in here
when your traveling through my ears
imagine your breath kissing my thoughts
don't know so much of anything anymore

What's This All About?

One Wrong
than 2 and 3
Where do I Belong?
Seems anywhere but here.

Once More

not so much
i never want to see your
face
feel your touch
