The Fall and The Thud… by Toni Cross

MH900438772

 

Harsh splinters grind between black teeth

A deathly sentiment hovers beneath

My enemy bites at me with a word

I’m struck down, fallen, like a bird

With the rush, with the thump, of a hollow thud

In the dust, my red blood makes bright mud

I wait helpless as a stunned sparrow

When fierce death comes to harrow

Where is He who truly sees all

That One who cares every time I fall?

Doomed? By Toni Cross


Reign of tyranny exalted by history
Veneered reality constructed most wistfully
How quickly we forget all the blood that was let
And the lives crushed beneath such smothering debt
Heed the whispered warning of dusty ancient mourning
No more false gold-leafing or deathtrap adorning
Are we doomed to fall prey to the fate of olden day?
Just destined to slay ourselves in this way?

how crazy — written 2/22/10 — Toni L.A. Cross

do you realize

how crazy you sound?

clean energy is evil?
and perversion is natural?

do you realize
how crazy you sound?

good is bad?
and bad is good?

do you realize
how crazy you sound?

everything came from nothing
and nothing is everything?

do you realize
how crazy you sound?

truth is everything
and everything is true?

do you realize
how crazy you sound?

do you??
