accented appreciation

February 6, 2011 Posted by the writer

laughable. like i am
ever prepared
to serve
silver plate punches.
turning other cheeks.
egos all the while
beckoning what
i am not.
wanted. to make up
for shadows,
what i have
to offer. take
what you like.
see. i am. outside.
all over ripping.
peace.
my lack of
equation. i could never
add up
to your requirement.
inside unimaginable
boxes. walls that close
killing me before
you had opportunity
to torture
what has been
dead
far before
you ever
(k)new
the meaning.
