My Blog Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo #2- Up, Over, and Beyond

I’m a few poems behind, but here’s my latest offering for National Poetry Writing Month:

NaPoWriMo #2


Up, Over, and Beyond

A light flickers

pens run out of ink

no more pardons

he’s too dazed to think

it wasn’t supposed to be like this

he sports black tats on his body

but wears pink socks in defiance

hands involuntarily balled into fists

goodbye reality

hello blue hell

regrets are fading as he convulses silently

he puckers his lips and waits for death’s kiss

eyes closed

veins pumped with golden poison

it really wasn’t supposed to be like this.
