Trapped Humanity

Exert from my poetry book, Perfectly Flawed.

Outside,  the sun is shining brightly, but within
The window, where the air is stale from fear of pain
Everyone seems to be hiding behind squares of glass
Letting life pass them by as their isolation presses
Down on their sanity, and cabin fever rises.

The Fear! The Fear!!!!

Fire, fire, sinuous liar, spread fear like a liar.

Ceaselessly, undulating, weaving your web with a lyre

Blending, melding, fogging your thinking,

Embedding the conductor’s swaying, moving

Hands, mesmerizing in its bright bluish, red flame, burning.

Rise, raise your filaments into the sky in supplication

To the Creator, the all powerful, the giver and taker

Of life, pleading for a savior from the twister

That surrounds your vision with a blight of fear.

Paralysis sets in, and movement is bound in a lere.

Fear, fear of a teeny weeny virus is worse

Than the fire bathing you in brine and ashe

That sizzles up your skin, sneaking, bubbling

Into scorched patches of bright stinky skin.

Emphasize the need to survive this pendemic

As surely as you empathize with your fellow man’s

Plight in their struggle to eradicate fear’s

Hold on your life and your actions.

Stear the fear into a sepulcher of death

And despair so its power lays fallow in a breath

That inhales life and hope for longevity and health.

Beseech your Creator for the will to live and breathe

In hope, optimism, compassion, and empathy for humanity.
