I don’t like him

image

He’s loud.
He’s obnoxious.
He’s simply absurd.

He paces relentlessly
as if to attract
everyone’s attention.

He tosses his ‘military’ status
into almost every conversation.
He believes his ‘status’
exempts him from the rules.

His perception of entitlement
is disturbing.
He expects respect
without first being respectful.

His personality is unappealing.
I don’t like him.

Lost in his own world

image

 


There once was a man
Who moved to the middle of nowhere
To feel safe and protected.
Trouble is, when danger came knocking
He was too far away for help to find him.
By the time help came he was already gone.

What does it mean?

image

 

Your words dazzle then fizzle
as they hit the floor,
for they are just that,
words, nothing more.

No actions
to bring them to life,
just empty consonants,
and sentences that rhyme.  

Vowels and silables,
strung together cleverly,
to amuse, to tease,
to show off creativity.  

To conjure emotion;
to mess with the mind;
to elicit some action;
to hook like fish on a line.

A lost fairytale wrapped up
in a cute bow,  given as a gift
to those who don’t care
or even want to know.

So what’s the point
of such coy renditions?
To give air to some sort of
highfoluton sophistication?

To elevate? To chastise?
To encapsulate a thought ?
Or perhaps quite simply
an outlet for wrath?

The things we say
should have some meaning,
not just empty words that hit the floor
as if thrown from the ceiling.

What do your words mean?
