Anger

I have polluted

the hallowed universe

with a stifled burst

of toxic anger;

a fuming surge

expunged

and radiated.

 

Can it be absorbed

and gently dispersed,

for I am so small,

and the universe

so titanic,

enigmatic

and limitless?

Almost Remembered

I find it in the space between,

not seen with eyes

nor touched by hand,

this quiet command

almost remembered.

 

I find it in the face of love,

the grace concealed 

now shining through,

with all we knew

almost remembered.

Cascade

Let it go…

 

years

of stifled tears

flowing!

The dam

has burst

with a cascade

of decayed emotions,

liquified,

 

now purified.

A Pebble

So here I am…

my ragged edges

made smooth; softened

by life’s jagged touch,

like a pebble plunged

through the rocky flow,

knowing nothing

for sure…

 

though the water

is  pure.

Judging

When I judge you,

I judge myself;

rejecting

a reflection

of me

in you!

 

For all the things

I abhor

are within

us all.
