'Til You Choke


I understand the fade of love,
the difficult, they try to be.
At times I want to strangle hold
those feelings deep inside of me.

I understand the soft of heart
that rises when I try to be.
The challenge is to overcome
those feelings deep inside of me.

~~*~~

I shadowed you, this evening's haze.
I wandered searching, combed the night.
Illusions followed me, bewitched
until I sank below contrite.

I don't regret a thing I've said.
I've wished for what can never be.
I'm targeted by others' force
to peel the outer skin of me.

~~*~~

Rueful I am, heart in fade,
hunted down by words that pain.
Reality is but a dream
de-tongued, this moment, you should reign

To swallow words that shouldn't sound
and taste your loathing 'til you choke,
compress your phrases into thoughts
that jam your mind in backhand stroke.

~~*~~

No understanding are these words
to those who haven't felt the ire.
Release I must, the torment of
this fury that destroys desire.

M
