Caught in The Barrier

  Caught in the Barrier

I have done it again

forced red tears to stream

down my withered face

as if rubies were gathering

to make a circle a gemstone

ringing out before my eyes everywhere.

Streaming with anxiety but perplexing nothing.

My body wears a smile of accomplishment against

some standing stone to pray against with

semi-precious red tears crumbling descent

into the river of memories of no return, I'm

crying out silently against white walls

watching myself disappear through the floodgates.

I've reached the barrier and have been caught

Within the nets of the reality of life

Is this new life or old life, who can say?
