i chose


over peace

and i started a war

(with myself).

i took arrows

in the lieu

of the doves

i sacrificed

(in red tears).

i salvaged

a whole city

while the temple


(my body).

i tell myself

i am brave

while the heart

in my chest quivers


i dance

with the devil

while the angels


(for me).

i blow

the ashes of my heart

from my hands

soaked in blood

(feel no more).

i am a resident

in hell

but i visit



i chose

to fight

a battle

i will never win

(me vs me).

    Again...just so artistic...I agree with Gerald. Your use of words and that stunning brevity that comes from all your pieces, just astounds me every time.
