Tinnitus

The silence doesn’t help much to keep my ears from bleeding.
So why not leave the torrent sound alone, it will not change the pain I’m feeling.
All at once I forget and then the same remember,
It returns full vengeance every bleak September.
A clear sky, a .44,
Was the cause I’m blaming. For
This sound, after all these years,
Still this cursed ringing in my ears.

The Tree of Knowledge

Into the night that may swallow whole
What fear we have and render silent the voices that may protest.
On deaf ears our crys fall,
An uncaring void, unwelcoming, and unable to
See how we fall, motionless,
Into the apathy of entropy that holds the universe in check.
What pride, what arrogance would grow rampant
Had not the tree of knowledge bestowed the gift of mortality.

Buried the Evidence

They bury all the evidence,
Secrets of poison, such escaping.
Bury all the evidence.
Rather than blind a thousand eyes,
Bury all the evidence.
Cemetery. A new home.
Once buried is the evidence,
Ears began listening,
Eyes began searching.
They buried all the evidence,
But the space left behind could not be covered.
They bury all the evidence,
But still they run; no rest for the wicked.
