Jason Bayliss on Proud men i know (two short poems for father's day) (2 hours ago)
why is it that
everyone says how
things will get better?
And at first you won't believe them.
but then as soon as
you get your hopes up
it all goes down.
And you cry, because you believed them.
again here comes the hole
that eats you whole
And then you say you won't believe anymore.
you are me.
and i am you.
we are both

I am a weaver of words. Make no mistake I said words, not wisdom.
I am a coniessuer of simulies, and synonyms.
My shelves are lined with glass beakers and tubes containing syllables, but I am no alchemist.
Make no mistake, though, I am a poet.
I will reach for the sharpest edges of your mind, and whether I come home with lifelong scars or your lifelong adoration - I don't mind.
No, I don't be...

All these new things,
Time passes through me like a breeze -

You stand there on hard earth
With your outstretched arms,

Your face is a scarred mass of distrust,
And you're twisted and crippled
Yet, you've lived on -
In an endless parade of in...

To be kind
For those in need

When many took my giving
A for granted rule!

I came across a hole one day
I filled it with my soul
But too frail was my soul that day
And too deep to fill the hole

With much more soul to toss.
