Sentient ~ D. James Breaux
Yesterday's promises
Demand a not so subtle inquiry
Into the aftermath of envy.
Love's landscape,
Littered with casualties,
Offers strength for the strong
And chocolate for the weak.
(doesn't do much good)
Shipwrecked hearts decline,
In opposition....
As if to start some
New revolution for the sad.
(members only)
Loneliness is the culprit,
Always the culprit;
Running redlights,
Causing emotions to unravel,
Causing thoughts to do absolutely
Anything required of them....
Forcing all the right words
To complete the mission
And providing sanctuary
For secrets
(being economical with the truth)
Which of course leaves
No one to blame;
Except for the sun,
Which mocks the moon
With each hostile takeover at dawn.
(mildly exaggerated)
Which totally sets up an
Imminent chain reaction
About to happen.
And then of course
(it happens).
It lures more
Unsuspecting onlookers
Into it's menacing cycle....
Another new day of detours
In the love parade.
