All These Lies

In Poetry, Writing on August 23, 2013 at 9:12 pm

The skies have eyes
that catch the lies
slithering out of my mouth.

And they despise
these dreadful lies,
but just watch my soul go south.

No peep, no weep,
nor loss of sleep,
but silently they riot.

Another sheep
the herder can’t keep
and still they remain quiet.

To stand so grand
and guard the land
is useless without leading.

With idle hand
and slipping sand
its only fires we’re feeding.

These skies, their eyes,
and all these lies,
the way their backs are turned.

Ignoring the  cries
of those late to realize
apologies are now spurned.
