The best of Silent Magenta

Updated on November 5, 2014

Disgust

Have you even been so disgusted with yourself that you avoid speaking your name?

A disgust that even water and scented soaps couldn't attack with a battle face.

That feeling that even the most pristine church walls would become painted with black coal from your very touch.

Lathered with sin

And slapped with judgemental faces.

Have you ever seen disgust?

America the beautiful

What could be so prideful that it would not apologize for the attempted extinction of every miniority in its being?

Who could be so greedy that they would rather ask the poverty striven to give their last dime before contributing themselves?

Where could be so sinful that its desired by other countries even though its own people are dying everyday?

How could we allow millions of dollars to slip through our hands into the pockets of those that are so wealthy that they can afford homes built of the finest stones?

When will you stand up and speak? Without to much force because freedom of speech is just something wrote on a cloth long time ago.

Oh' America the beautiful

Poetry

I am going to combine some uneven lines

one after another

I am going to rhyme every now and then

and you will call it poetry

I'll add -ation

to improve my creations

and you applaud mediocrity

your eyes will dance from word to word

all because you think its poetry

adding nouns and adjective and verbs

all in cute little stubby lines

just so you can comprehend

what I truly mean

or is the only pursuit to enjoy and read?


In my closet

I have some skeletons in my closet

nobody can see them but me

nobody hears what I hear

they jump around whispering to each other

telling the tells of my life

but no one elses knows
