The Hunger

Shadows danced

on blood washed walls

as dreams would melt

on bended knee.

A pulse that beat

would hide the truth

in rooms that dripped

with grime & sleaze.

And I was there

with you my friend

whose hand I held

that led the way.

And as you bathed

in youths free love

across the throat

my smile would fade.

We took the heights

in shanty town

awash with

sacred chants.

We watched belief

that called my soul

yet burned

my silver dream.

And as we left

I felt your heart

warm within my fist,

that beat a drum

to warn myself

of life’s most

vicious twists….

  8. It’s deep and macabre. You have a great way of expressing yourself and getting the reader to feel what is meant to be fealt through your words and the images they depict, even though I believe the true meaning can only be known to you, the poet 🙂
