All Souls

Pleasant virtues of a master race,
Languish in the tide of change;
The moon like a bowl of milk overflows
And drips onto the brow of humanity,
To free their fettered minds,
But the visions go unnoticed,
The message is lost on apathetic beings –
Unloving creatures of earth.
Where to? Cries the moon; what do we do now?
The heavenly bodies decree that silence is the answer –
The only way is to close the gate and remain tight lipped
About this failed attempt at communication.
The sadness is thick like cheese. No holes to breathe.
The rolling, tumbling, fumbling, mumbling horde of earthlings keep walking on Toward an end only perceptible to the minds eye,
And that remains shut for the world outside remains fixed,
Solid; tangible but useless; oh when will the message get through.
A vicarious existence is not one to trust;
Yearning for more in all the wrong places,
The price is high these days, especially for the open hearted –
Tears go unnoticed in the crowd, small bodies and smaller hands clasp and grasp, clamber for a hold onto what appears true,
But skin, alloyed by the eyes grease, slip and fall,
The despair, the splintered reality, more truth to bare.
I never thought it would come to this.
Standing amidst the crowd, passing by like wind,
The mind is a mess – I thought everything had a place – I was wrong.
Nothing lasts forever; the mind leads at the expense of the heart that breaks –
Told you so, I am so much stronger, it howls like a banshee.
The storm is brewing in the cauldron and time will tell another story of how humanity fell from grace – oh, we are just accidents waiting to happen,
The car wreck is a sprawling landscape, and I lie,
Humbled by the pain that is life –
Tear and repair, the scars are fattened slugs on the flesh,
Not long before they burst and add to the poison infecting all souls.
