She screams in agony and heartbreak


While making phone calls repetitively 


Compulsive and elaborate text messages


Over cold coffee and nightmares at two AM


Her husband silently caresses her forehead 


After another day of baring the world's burdens


 


Playing rap music for cheap smiles,


Drowning the auditory hallucinations in my mind


I ride on the carousel of helplessness 


Burning my own anger, desperately trying to 


Put my own emotions away


For her. For him.


....They mean more than the world to me.


 


I push my own agendas aside 


And mistakenly curse my sister 


with sweat and tears


(Making matters worse)


 


I beg God for change. For movement,


But it seems so far (still). 


To witness this mourning continually 


Douses my own garden 


 


I can't bear these burdens any longer


Questions are left void with no sight of truth 


Lies are entangled with the weeds that 


Strangle the possibilities from my abilities 


 


I watch valuable, unconditional love 


Being rebuked and mistreated 


by somebody of the same flesh and blood 


 


The devils are all the same,


Convincing whats unreal to the vulnerable 


Sculpting illusions and crafting hallucinations


For another show
