A Poem by Wynter Ignatius

Absent thought
Tiny glow from false idols
Hoarding in tune
Shuffling masses united
Untied personal bonds
Derived from digital lip service

Scorn the few
Not leashed
To fashion
Or scandal
Free the chains
Outside the box
Conscience thoughts provoke
Lynch mobs to fester
Pounds of flesh
Taken from heart

Ripped apart
Zombies to the fallow feast
Consuming just enough
Sating temporary craving
In lieu a proper meal
Tenderizing future meals
Beyond black and blue
Till crimson flows
From unseen wounds
Demanding more and more
From dry wells so disgusted

With the world around
Caving in
Pressure is too deep
Sunrise and sunset
Clocking in another day
Punching in
Punching out
Alarms fall short
Impetus meets the wall
We created
Brick by bloody brick
Bones and flesh
Cementing it all in place
Our personal shade
Becomes looming shadow
The darkness we all keep
Timid whispers wrought of shouts
To no one
Going no where
Taking its toll
Begins again
And again
Just enough light
To make tomorrow happen

Walking the fringe
Boarders of our minds
Fragile cracks with every step
Yet we walk out further
Yearning for a mirage
Promising the moon
Flashing with stars
Never there

A warning light
Moths to hottest flame
Still we move and sway
Into the lips of a burning kiss
Stained black
Thickened ash warns
With every embrace
Held tight
Scoffing our forefathers
Lessons they declared
Because we know better
Showing it truly
Without remorse
