Literature
A Moment
If I could, for but a moment
Take a moment and hold it
For but a moment
Here trapped in resin
I would hold it
And hold it
And hold
Because, in that moment
I could see
The litter of us
The leftovers
Headstones cast and cast aside
Marking each mistake
And how I'd made it
And if I could, for but a moment
Take that moment
And mold it
To make of it a more perfect imagining
I would but hold it
And stare
Oh how foolishly do I stare

Literature
Chill
The blessed chill
Comes
To burn life away
Anticipating
Stars reflected
'pon white
The frosting of glass
The quieted peace
The comfortable silence
Death brings
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 1 0
Literature
Concrete
Trumpets sound the failure
Tires spinning in the mud
An unwitting stillness
A settling stagnation
A wound unknown
A foreign sensation
A sorrowful nothing
Without knowing
The chords or how
They plucked themselves taut
To spell finality
To end infinity
To falter hopelessly
So now a cloud to sear
Pain brought to numb the pain
A haze of forgetting
A haze of forgetting
What concrete was
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 1 1
Literature
Pin
The world spins
Upon a pin
Caught in the sway
Of father and sin
How they spin
and spin
The darkness away
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 2 0
Literature
Cracks
Thoughts creep
Seeping through
The cracks in the sound
Each moment of silence
Overbearing
A burden
A writhing thing
Prodding and poking
Ripping and tearing
A hole once-patched
Twice blistered
In the heat
Of self-examination
:iconTonsha:Tonsha

Literature
In The Back Seat
I miss the sight of car seats
All slanted from the back
The smell of leather
And windows that wouldn’t roll all the way down
I miss the backs of headrests
And how I struggled to see over the top of heads much higher than mine
The hair wind-snared
The cigarette ash flying far behind
But now I’ve seen over them
Towering above leather and upholstery
Wishing, only wishing
To forget what I saw beyond the windscreen

Literature
Fall Awake
Just once I'd like to fall awake
To plunge free of this haze
This nonsensical place
Where hate is free
And love is priceless
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 2 1
Literature
Bin and Blanket
I've come with questions
I've come with inquiries
With askance and beggary
To Extravagance
Upon the gates lay gilt
And on the stars absurdity
But with a bin and a blanket
I was sent upon my way

Literature
A Shadow
Am I a shadow?
A shadow,
A hazy forgetting of everything
I was?
Have I gone from here?
Torn away,
Left and gone
From memory?
Where is 'Me'?
An echo,
Floundering
Into infinity.
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 2 1
Literature
Stomp
A leaking, dripping drop
Wet against a windowpane
Once-clear glass streaking
Clouding
Until sight has gone
Until night has come
Until life is done
A marring, ruinous stomp
Cracking hard against stone
Once-clear thoughts breaking
Crying
For the loss of sight
For the loss of sun
The loss of life
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 0 0
Literature
Of ofs and ifs
A pondering on the nature of 'if'
The nature of 'of'
Of if, if of
A pondering
If requires a yes, a no, perhaps
Of, where
Of, when?
No.
When and how are left for others
If and of, of and if
Precious things
Possibilities
Unbothered
Unfettered
Of and If.

Literature
Alive
A twisted visage of what once was
Scrambles for memories of things
That never were
Destinies left at the wayside
With the chains of birth
A suffering called ‘Alive’
Never so dirty a word as alive
Never a word so filled with duty
To look upon the eve’s end
To look upon a dawn’s rise
:iconTonsha:Tonsha

Literature
Screaming
There’s a screaming in my head
It wants me dead,
It wants me dead.
I don’t understand why it’s there
In my head,
In my head.
All I know is that it wants me dead.

Literature
Reflections
Now come we to reflections
To refracted beings
Come hurdling from the past
Now come we to echoes
Of songs unheard
Tearing ethereal
The neon glow of apathy
With all the coke-lined glitz
A disparity could ask for
An irony worn for irony's sake
A laugh hidden behind a sob
We've become our deepest tragedies
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 2 0
Literature
A City View
Plush white dances soft against the toes
Cradling a fading violet
Small against the sky
Looming in the mind
The scent of ambition washing away the tears
Playing along gleaming stone
The trends of ages current
Left now in the past
A voice, a face, a place long forgotten
Faded like bruises once born
Small in the memory
Yet looming in the mind
A feeling of feelings and half-remembered lights
A sound I once knew
A modernistic refuge
With a city view
:iconTonsha:Tonsha
:icontonsha:Tonsha 0 1
Literature
Night Drive
A car cuts through warm night air
Born aloft by plastic glam
Teal wings soaring over concrete
Soaring into skyscraper dreams
And beneath?
Beneath spreads the color of the sea
Skipping and rippling along asphalt
A young mind
Stars for the giving
Perfume and acetone
Steel and glass
Masked by lullabies of wind
Swallowed in the roar of an engine
Basked in the glow of opulence
Of possibility

Thoughts creep
Seeping through
The cracks in the sound
Each moment of silence
Overbearing
A burden
A writhing thing
Prodding and poking
Ripping and tearing
A hole once-patched
Twice blistered
In the heat
Of self-examination
At least of sorts.
Ideas for Palace have occurred, the entire current prologue is out the window.
Will try to write more regularly now that my brain seems to have stabilized a bit.
