EMOTIONAL PIÑATA (Poem By Billy Alsbrooks)

EMOTIONAL PIÑATA 

Poem By Billy Alsbrooks 

_________________________________________
_________________________________________

A violent unpredictability 

Laced with moments of distortion 

Suddenly out of the mouth of chaos comes a possibility 

Some small rare unlikely possibility 

_________________________________________

A broken man filled with brilliant ideas

Abused by the very monsters he tries to save 

Sometimes he wonders 

Sometimes he wonders what he’s even fighting for?

_________________________________________

I’ll give you the sun 

You’ll be the death of me

I’ll give you the moon 

You’ll be the breath in me

But one thing’s for certain,

There’s no way home 

That ship sailed long ago

_________________________________________

Life is strange

Strangely vindictive 

Yet under all the pain 

The flowers still bloom

Somewhere out there

The flowers still bloom 

_________________________________________

I’ll give you the moon 

You’ll be the breath in me

I’ll give you the sun

You’ll be the death of me

But one thing’s for certain,

There’s no way home 

That ship sailed long ago

_________________________________________

I still love the secrets we keep

The ugly our mouths know 

Just don’t open that door

Please 

Please don’t open that door

_________________________________________

I speak the language 

The sacred language of branches 

While their hands swing bats

I play the emotional piñata 

Screaming

Dying 

Bleeding all my candy 

Swinging through the day with my sides open 

I’m hurt,

But I love you

I’m hurt,

But I love you 

_________________________________________

Sometimes he wonders 

Sometimes he wonders what he’s even fighting for?

Sometimes he wonders 

Emotional Piñata…
