Sincerity of Irritation

Updated on November 24, 2010

You opened your mouth...

louder then words I heard intent...

but words didn't match intent...

I gandered a pass to express what I knew...

only to find a plug stopped the way...

I tried to push through...

speaking all the louder...

it didn't matter...

words became confusion...

A fool I am that way...

trying to speak when there is mud in the way...

earth's finest clay...

good for much else...

mixes with earwax and cant be unstuffed...

I understand now the anger with that stuck in there...

in dumbfounded amazement I stair...

as bees come out to sting...

my charitable attempt a waste...

Why do I bother talking to paste...

always the same result...

insanity by name...

I care for the stings...

I hurt for the mind dying inside...

naught to feed but to eat at its own self...

a broken record, scratched to discard...

someone once noble for me to bereave...

snot and saline staining my sleeve....


How do I get in this mess you might ask?

If futile my effort is a well worn path...

I can't remember when this wasn't the way...

but my Father asked it of me...

so in that path I must stay...

I would rather laugh then shed many more tears.


Excuse my effrontery, I am ever sincere...

truthful to the last though it all might seem relative...

I can't see it that way and won't till the end...

don't ask me to break or bend to the masses...

In the name of my truth I will make many more passes...

Now I can't laugh forever...

so here in the cold...

my heart sheds a tear for being too bold.

      You are right, these emotions did work for better pros then lay expression. I may consider that in future.

      KC,

      This is your way; you create beautiful prose, what better way to show frustration and anger with finesse and beauty over brawn and banter? This is terrific. Happy Thanksgiving.
