Stay Alone For Too Long

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on December 14, 2012 by dc

Stay alone for too long
And the cold shivers,

People quiver
Around you,

The mouth becomes
An open wound
And the truth
Seeps out.

You run your mouth
And exhaust it,

Climb into truths
And flesh their bones
With pleading sympathy
And doubt.

It’s bad news.

All the faces you receive
Sit an expression too far,
Seconds from understanding,

The planning stages
Left hanging

Like an empty noose
On the landing,

Or something
Less dark.
