Set in between my black heart and your white lies,
Grey eyed wisdom is overshadowed by extremes,
But I need: Some guidance, some advice,
‘Cause I do not know what is right.
I turn away and you tell me to stay,
I stay put and hate myself for being weak,
I don’t know where to find the answers I seek. Continue reading Misplaced Missive #203 – All The Colors That You Shine
Red flags flown with pride,
A symbol once wished peaceful,
Used to tear us apart;
A past in pieces,
We cannot allow to restart.
How dare they preach while
Waving rags so soaked in blood. Continue reading Color Schemes – Blood Red Divisions
Grey smoke trails spelling out disaster,
We circled around each other ever faster,
Ignoring warnings of whether
Or not, good could
Come of actions so callous.
I don’t know how we fell so far,
But I don’t think we’ll ever rise above it. Continue reading Color Schemes: Less Than Friend
Violet voices composed of the purple haze
Lingering in the fragile space
Between virgin snow
And dawn’s first light. Continue reading Color Schemes: Who I Miss
I know what you’re thinking:
That I’m hiding,
In these dusty old books of mine.
Don’t you know you’re always on my mind?
I’m in here trying to find,
The right words to recite to you. Continue reading Color Schemes – All My Words Are Lost At Sea
Make America great again.
Reverse and rewind, turn back time,
To once upon a rose colored nostalgia.
Make America – regress –
Take us back too many steps,
Led by manipulated conviction, fearful of complex fact,
No deep thoughts; all kneejerk act. Continue reading Color Schemes – Where Are We Now?
Fire in presence/
Ice in absence
For the heart?
I’ll burn, I’ll freeze
Death by degrees Continue reading Color Schemes – Red & Blue
This is what you wanted,
So why are you always
Downing the liquid fire?
Browning out the times
Meant to be in full color.
Sacrificing the next day’s health
To the whims of the night before.
If you’re so happy
Why get so drunk?
Needing depressants to suppress
….what? Continue reading Color Schemes – What You Wanted
Many like you strive
To have a heart of gold.
Weak and malleable,
But appealing to hold.
I’d prefer a heart of obsidian.
Honest about its blackest sin, Continue reading Color Schemes – Not All That Glitters Is Gold – JG
The flame in all of us
Fire as inspiration
Soul afire, burning strong
Creativity’s companion –
A mate, a match, a song
A brightest of bright blaze
A beauty of impossible kindness
None could deny this;
All but extinguished,
Relinquished spark and
Forgotten art. Continue reading Color Schemes – If I Must – JG
