That Way

Demons hunt my darkness

For a place to run and hide

Angels light upon my breath

Firing arrows to and fro

My whole mind is a battleground

And the victors I’ve yet to know

My words are both sails and anchors

Dry land and a tempest of no end

A siren’s song to drown you

Or a brave Indian come to rescue the near dead

I watch from drawn shades a country run aground

I blink and I am bloodied, I hear the trumpet sound

The children fight back with plastic guns

Theelders fight back with pharmaceuticals

The adults fight each other with barbs of wind

Never partially a lie, never fully true

The maze encapsulates me and you

Destined to a fate of black mud and wood

They know the right way

But who makes any money that way

One thought on “That Way

I'm interested in hearing what you have to say
