A portfolio / blog site blasting out of a slightly crazy, possibly a bit ADD, but definitely unique mind.

Black and Blue

Black and Blue

You think you’re going against the grain, but you’re not.
Your all the same.
A no name face of the human race
Lost, crying alone, the soul’s been torn
Just another body, drop, hit the floor
Black and blue, like a bird or a bruise

The sad mother mourns the loss of her sheep
You need to rise up, open your eyes up
The world’s not what you think,
It’s lost. It’s weak.
The people speak, and the world, it weeps.
Black and blue, like a bird or a bruise

Life’s not leached, not  static, not gray
You’ve lost your sight.
You’re colorblind.
You’re stuck in a broken mind frame.
In a world fucked by psych games
Black and blue, like a bird or a bruise

Gotta blame the problems on the other
It’s not like me, he can’t be my brother.
Martyrdom and thieves, shattered wings
Compliance, an erratic virtue
No rewind, Don’t stop or we’ll hurt you.
Black and blue, like a bird or a bruise

  1. Sometimes I run across a poem that I really like and relate to … and I have a bad habit. I want to pare away the words and extract from it the same feeling, the same emotions, the same impact … but reducing it to half the words. Not a criticism. Just really a sign of how much I like the work! This is one of those poems!

  2. That’s funny because I do the same thing. I strip it down to the bare essentials, pull it apart, dissect it. Thx for the feedback!

  3. It is interesting that people “correct” here as I have not seen that in other poetry groups. Is this a feature of Poets United or is this just in this instance? About your poem, I find it intersting. Is there a name for the format? I am new to the world of poetry so do not know the different forms. I like the “echo” sentence at the end of each stanza. I am looking forward to reading more of your work. Hugs, pat
