Quicksand

Lost
And naked
Trying to run
And never look back
Invisible bark
Surrounds
My tree
Inside thrown outwards
You could see.
Insecurity
Shame
Impractical reasons
Kept me away
Far away
From your seas
Writing feels wrong
Music is gone
Questions fill the endless
When will beauty
Jump from dumps
when will fire
Burn the house down.
Don't mind the missing rhymes
I mind the missing you
Savior of worlds
Carrier of trucks.
The count to ten
Has long been said
Your spirit is missing
From my bed.
Hope or fear
Never clear
Plagues of guilt
Rush forward
When i dream.
No such haven
Not a trick
How could this be.
Pieces form
They link
Like bricks
In quicksand.
Dimples
Twinkles
Break waves of heat
Pulse quickens
Love beats.
Spiders creep
Into the leaks
And stretch them
They never tear.
An overstuffed toy box
Opens and spills
While both continue
To drill
And drill.
Please don't take pills
And don't
Stand
Still
Flimsy ribbons
Can kill.
Chasing the wind
Uncontainable
Wanting
Somersaults flutter
While reality
Loses wonder
But
Gains appeal.
Bond deepens
While strokes
Strengthen
When will i be ready
Safe
Bold and beautified
Find me
Or pretend
You do not care.
Do not know-
That i am within you
Do not know-
These handcuffs are clasped
Forever
Don't disappear
With fake forgetfulness
Objectivity-
Separates
Why can't we be here
Real for real
If only
Wondering wheels
