 words ever flowing/pieces of me

under the shattered table

Was it thanksgiving?
Was it an Earth quake?
How close should I hold this to my heart?
Do they really know what love is?

I see not everything can be held "personal"
as they haven't listened with their hearts
they were taught to disregard life
work toward death
as fast as they can
spawning more like them
the system in place
no such thing as
it's all
waiting for a return

pray for another light to shine
to blind
to open eyes
sever the ties
between the alien needs

they have intertwined
very clever of them
swaying every nation
I close my eyes
think of a time much more high
when truth was practiced
could divide

When will they return?
