A Moment’s Kiss

A Moment’s Kiss

 

Hesitation’s pause

 seconds 

like longest hours

chances

there for the taking

but for an ever twirling dance

…uncertainty’s cold paralysis

 indecision

lost moments

 …ticking off

never once halted

time’s staid guardianship

 

alas,

 

the plane of indecision is broken

 

this, the first of many

 

stolen moments

One of three pieces that I read at an Open Mic Event at Frugal Muse(05/20/2015). http://www.frugalmusebooks.com/

Chasm

 

praying

for eyesight          to the blind

and

already wounded

                  so far down               

 on their luck…circumstances

but robbed

right

before

own……all…… of our eyes

gone well before

most would even

                 thought                

to have looked

deadened hearing

for ears………already trained

not to hear…wanting to hear

voices

calling……pleading……wanting…..needing

eyes          only trained

not to see……..the pained

selves        

conditioned…..hardened…..desensitized

no longer……able? wanting?

or……simply care

empathy

imperceptible…….invisible

conspicuously silent

silenced?

modern day……. robber barons

thieves

ever quick to blame

pointing……away from

themselves

heaping scorn

upon

poor…….destitute

stealing……..lining pockets

but….

how long?

till the many……faces

of poverty

hellbent

on vengeance

burning holes

in thoughts…..pained memories

will

eventually

show no quarter

 

can there then be any evidence, any hinted whisper of mercy expected?

 

suppressed

so far down

into the depths

only

giving back

what they were always…

Poetic Fragments

 

(A)

When

 

one person’s act of overt aggression

 

…….is a storm of silence.

(B)

When

 

the only flight from fear

 

…….is to stand and wait.

 

(C) 

delirium’s trip

oh, it all comes so quickly

this dance….in your maze

Temporary Reprieve by Len Gesinski

Posted in Uncategorized on January 11, 2015 by lengesinski

I am not a silent poet

The eyes tell their stories, words spoken not always necessary.
Weariness comes with this territory, a daily badge of survival.
Another day, another resource, another place for lodging, another place for food.
Apathy, Indifference, and Obliviousness only compound the burden.

a fading sunset
please walk a mile in these shoes
tomorrow…..unknown

Poetic Fragments

 

Come

hold my hand

we’ll walk into the evening

with only the moon and stars above

to know of our deepest

dreams

wishes

aspirations

come

walk with me

there is not a single moment

that I could imagine

being spent

without

you

 

by my side

Broken Prose Fragments by Len Gesinski

Posted in Uncategorized on December 15, 2014 by lengesinski

I am not a silent poet

Another day
another death
another crime
another example
of
injustice
intolerance
a survivors
numbed reality
closed off
from
the continual barrage
crime
violence
death
addiction
physical scars
mental scars
play the game
live another day
survival skills
on these mean streets
this is what home really looks like
