Random Poem:

Miles away
Zion

It burns
 1
burns deep into the trenches of my self
 2
their eyes a magnifying glass
 3
concentrating the heat of their life
 4
on my soul.
 5
 
 
looming gray pain for them sets in as they
 6
hit
 7
drop
 8
toke
 9
ingest
 10
chief
 11
there way to ignorance
 12
placid bliss, mindless joy induced
 13
through the burning of green leaves, fermented hops
 14
their      for escape never ceases.
 15
 
 
They take my inner being
 16
roll and light my love for them
 17
without second thoughts
 18
 
 
Slumped in room I pick
 19
notes that remind me of times past.
 20
the black top of innocence
 21
a sense
 22
of life not interfered by substance
 23
only the gaining of substance of character and friendship
 24
now friendship and times of innocence are profaned by white lies… and more.
 25
 
 
All of this for what?
 26
 
 
a momentary feel good notion,
 27
lose of inhibitions, lose of being and place.
 28
 
 
I hide face,       shot eyes reveal my suffering to walls unforgiving
 29
words do not change lives of friends
 30
but
 31
maybe my love for them can.  
 32
              - Your truest Friend,
 33
                        Abe.
