Unfettered

Tears shred this helpless soul inside
Held back to hide the pain
Like iced blades, they cut the ties
And mock these many faces

Behind closed doors there is no pride
No need, no smile to feign
My failures seek no place to hide
Here on these private pages

Here dreams are made and hope still thrives
Where time will not decay
Tomorrow has but to arrive
To loose me from these cages

But, will I fight or will I fly
When faced with a new day?
The question is, “to live or die? ”
Though on the battle rages
 
Christopher Thor Britt

Untouchable

Fear abides where
Darkness hides the
Impossible and peculiar
Shadows cast o’er
The place where last
The untouchable seemed familiar

Whether friends, or lovers
Or sisters and brothers
All searching for different ends
What is found and
Where we’re bound
On point of view, depends

To count the cost of
What was lost
Remains to me unthinkable
When what’s peculiar
Yet, so familiar
Remains to me, untouchable

Endless Night

Barely is man alive before
Death comes to claim his bride.
Thus betrothed we must abide
Less willing, the groom to meet

Death feigns to court us from the rift of
Time and space. He sends his gifts of
War and plague and violent shifts
His harvest soon to reap

When the endless night does come and
Life upon the Earth is done
No place for wanton souls to run
Their maker soon will meet

If you die before you wake and
Find you’ve made a grave mistake
Your prayers, too little and much too late
May find deaf ears to boot

But, if you wake before you die and
Take the blinders from your eyes
You’ll see that death is but a lie and
Live to see the truth

Fishing

I search, research
Drop anchor and wait with
Baited hook cast to seize the day
There’s action beyond what I can see
Though anxious, I wait patiently for
Opportunity to bite and run
In the struggle, break water and
Reach for the sun.

With dreams alive and vision true
I see a shimmer. I glimpse a view
Tension mounts. To the challenge, I rise
Reeling and reeling, but
I fail to surmise
The catch requires less drag and more line
Fighting, more fighting.
Give it more time

What’s this? A shimmer, I see in the stream
Ripples and more at the surface, my dream
But, down and deeper an unforeseen snag
I must keep control. I tighten the drag
No good. No time. A web-tangled line…
Misfortune dictates, “Cut bait”
Changing my tack, I search and research
Drop anchor and patiently wait... Fishing
