poop.


chains



the sun closes on a smooth falling skyline
traced into the oncoming night's breath
of babies sleeping soundly in neighborhoods
where dogs break free of leashes and become what mother's fear the most
skipping heart beats to match
anime induced seizures sending flashes of pain
into ambulance drivers carrying three year olds
to somewhere safer than dirty living-room carpet floors
where memories once held happiness
only darker times are known to empty minds
hollow as logs floating above rivers of dreams
shattered images of people we once knew
the ones we saw in ourselves
rising above the past
as birds flutter on torn wings
clipped and held back
to keep them from finding freedom
it is the american way after all
to hurt to help the ones we are supposed to care for
to make them believe they are being set free
only to lock them in caves
hidden in mountains
where valleys are dug in deserts
keeping out all of the unwanted
sometimes you just have to know when to give up.

Wow, I loved that part for sure :-)
