Is Not

Love broken
Almost true
Too sad
To live
Glory love
Become pain
Turned teacher
Self hate
Being lost
No trust
Eternal bereft
Heart love
No inversion
Has become
Your life
Sparkling lies
Is not
Your love
Wavering Maya
Hope mere
To fantasy
Your empty
Voided promises
Howling wind
Whirls my
Dancing words
Into lettered dust
Dry friction
Arching discharge
Abyss’ lucid

Safe ——- by Bear

That “I wasn’t aware”

Does not mean I do not care.

It’s merely that

Your burden is not mine to bear.

My own back is stiff

But not in pain, certainly not the agony

You purport yours to be.



That you live in misery

Is plain for me to see.

If I suggest “Why don’t you go

Back in your little room?”

It isn’t really fate and doom.

I merely prefer to not see

What you have come to be.



If you have movement issues

And stagger and fall,

I’ll assume and accuse

“Too many pills won’t cure all ills.”

Even though I know you

No longer have any meds at all.



But if you cry in despair

As your sting-nettle skin

Burns with electric sizzles in the air

And I say

“Can’t you just take a pill and feel better?”

Even though I do know you

No longer have any meds at all.



When the Jinn pull your hair

And whisper curses in your ear,

Alien words that I will never hear,

It doesn’t mean that

I don’t care

It’s merely what I prefer,

When I say  “I wasn’t aware.”



So if you love me


Hide your pain and misery.

Stay in your little room

Wallow alone in your damned

Doom and gloom

So what if your nerves are shot?

Please know that mine are not.

Don’t ask me for sympathy.

Go.  Let me be.



It’s not that I don’t care,

I just want to be safe when I say that

“I wasn’t aware.”

Our Only Dance —- Bear


The almost and never was,

Remembered as a dream.

Oh my Dance  of Reminiscing

I truly loved you just because.


With your half-way heart

My questions hushed

By your sweet lips kissing

And your “Never let us part”.


You told me that you loved me

But was it really true?

Was there something missing?

It doesn’t matter now, you see.


The almost and never was,

Remembered as a dream.

Oh my Dance  of Reminiscing

I truly loved you just because.
