table

looking down through his glass 

he saw where the tears of wine

had left their stains of disappointment 

deep inside the splinters of a broken table.

raindrops

he hoped the lonely tears that fell down his cheeks

were like the raindrops that fall down from the sky …

for only a little while.

wasted

the pile of faded out t-shirts

that sit silent in the corner of an empty room

still have the scented memories 

of his wasted kisses, lost loves,

and the absent knowing

of how to feel something for someone.

                                                                         

                                                                             avp

hides

he hides himself away

in a corner where nobody can see

he never bleeds,

he never heals.

                            avp

captive

held captive by terrorist lies,

they forced him 

into taking faith in false thoughts

by drinking their poisoned words.

                                                                                                                   avp

flat

driving into the unknown 

on flat tires

that follow shadows and empty signs,

he left behind 

another second chance.

                                              avp

cage

he made a cage

of wired lies and compliments

for his heart.

                                           avp

prison

from his self induced prison cell of

walking through life alone,

with only steel bars watching him…

he transformed into

an empty canvas.
