MY AQUARIAN TONGUE


MY AQUARIAN TONGUE

S.JENSEN © 2018

HARDEN BY SUN AND AIR

SOFTEN BY WATER AND HEAT

HEARTEN BY MOON AND FLOWERS

SHE SLEEPS A CHARMED

SLEEP TIL WAKEN

IN THE NIGHT

TO STORMY WEATHER

AMONG FRIENDS

OH TO THE TRUTH

AND TROUBLES IT SO BRINGS

OH THE POISON IN

THE BLOOD VEINS

AND FRUITS LIKE HONEY

TO THE THROAT

TEAS THAT AID IN PAIN

CALMED IN DEADLY PERIL

THE FIERY ANTIDOTE

YET OF HARSH WORDS

FLOWED FROM THIS

TONGUE

SEEKS SHADOWS BY

THE MISTAKE

AND BETRAYED TRUST

TO DRUNKEN

FIENDISH HURTS

LEFT IN THE EARLY MORN

TO FIND STRENGTH

WHILE ONE STANDS

AMONG THE SHINING LIGHTED WARMTH

OF DAY WITH FROST-LOCKED

WINTER

OH THE

BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE

PHRASES

AS FRIENDSHIPS

ALREADY FRAGILE

COME UNRAVELED

DRIPPING DRY

IN THAWED WIND

TO CLOSED DOORS

STRONG ON THE WIND

ADMITTING COURAGE

TO APOLOGIZE WHERE

I IN ALL OF IT WAS WRONG

TRUTH OR NOT TRUTH

HURT IT DID

TO ALL INVOLVED

ONCE AGAIN

THE BLADED GRASS CUTS

CLEAN AND DEEP

AS WHAT BREAKS

IS A LESSON LEARNED

ONLY IT SEEMS BY MYSELF

TO USE MY HEART

LIKE A RAINBOW SHELL

DANGLING TOXIC BASKETS

OF ROTTEN FOOD

IN THE GARBAGE THEY GO

OUT THE DOOR

OH TO TRUE COLOURS

OF THE SOULS

SHINES AND BRINGS

NOTHING BUT

FAR LESS THAN

THE SUNSET SKY

WORTH SHAKEN

BUT LOVE CARRIES

BUT THE COST IS A LOSS

LINGERING IN TIME

AS THESE CARED FOR

BASH EACH OTHER WITH

WORDS

AND STORMS RISE AND FALL

AS ONE WALKS AWAY

AND INITIATIVES ROLLED

LIKE DICE DOWN THE DRAIN

ANY HOPES

OF GROWING KARMA

TO EXPAND

LOST ON THEM BOTH

YET WITHIN THIS SOUL

IT RESIDES TO REPENT

MY WRONGS

I KNOW NOW WHERE

THE TRUE POISON RESIDES

AND JUST HOW BAD IN

THE DEPTHS IT LURKS

WASHING MY DARKEST

IMPERFECTIONS AWAY

WITHIN THE HEATED

SUN KEELED AND WRESTLED

THOSE PERSONAL DEMONS

AWAY FROM MY DOOR

YET IT SO KNOCKED

LAVED SOUL IN TEARS

OF STRETCHED YEARS

NO LONGER TO MORNING STARS

THRILLS OF SUBTLE SCENTS

AMONG THE RANTS

ARCHANGEL OUTSTRIPPED

THE ROUGH EDGES

OH TO KNOWLEDGE DULY WEIGHED

TRUTH OR NOT

SOMETIMES IT JUST

SHOULDN’T BE SAID

ON SENSITIVE EARS

OR IT SHOWS COLD DEWS

AND SIDES IN THE SAND

ARE DRAWN FOR

IT TAKES ONLY SECONDS

TO DESTROY WHAT

YEARS HAS BUILT

TESTED FOUNDATIONS

OH SAVE LOVE

FOR LOVE IS ALL IN ALL

TO MY

SALVAGED RUINS

OF THE CHOICES MADE

AND THE LOST

TRUST TO

THE NOW FRIENDSHIPS

SHATTERED AND GONE

FOR CERTAIN.

THIS APPLIES

TO A FEW THINGS

RECENT AND PASSED

WHERE ENDS OCCUR

AND BEGINNINGS

SOMEHOW

ARE STILL WORKED

OUT…

I HAVE LEARNED

MY KARMIC LESSON

ON MY BRUTAL TONGUES

HARSH WORDS

SAID AND HOW A

FRIEND USED THEM

TO HURT ANOTHER

AND HOW

THAT JUST CHANGED

EVERYTHING…

I REALIZE

TRUTH

SOMETIMES

JUST SHOULDN’T BE

SAID.
