For Whom The Bell Jar Tolls

For whom the Bell Jar tollsChasing demons down the dark hallScratching an itch until it bleedsBeyond a fantasy that wasn’t there at all Never letting the imposter take holdGrowing larger in our own impressionSizing up unquestioned confidenceSurviving in spite of a soul’s transgression

Seeking Out The Sunshine

  Seeking out the sunshineGrasping at anything brightEchoes from the hauntingHowls from deep in the nightTaking the long way homeAway from all things too muchAvoiding stress & transgressionsTrappings of modernity & suchWe shall find an answerWithin the confines of peaceOur aims are good & trueSeeking out love until the end of life’s lease
