Unbearable pain of my mother

She cries,
A soaring mountain cliff
Broken into two pieces,
And no one dares to care

As the sun is ever in chase
of the moon
so shall dreams curtail

Ah, what can I write
To help with this bitter pain
Of another day?

Mr. Poet

Times go so fast
And nothing gets done
As I lie naked

Faking, singing, willing,
Jotting – nothing,
And only
Drinking Rum.
