Madness

I stare at her face but I hold back my slap
I think to never call her but tomorrow I do
I want so much for her to scream
But the house is silent today.

I stare at her hand but I never hold it
I think to buy her presents but tomorrow I never do
I want so much for her to laugh
But the house is silent today.

I stare at my future and laugh,
the bowling ball only hits two pins
one is my mother
the other my father.

I think too much and never act,
the sirens may sing or wail
tantalize with zesty looks or blink red and light the streets
but regardless I stand still.

I want so much to live!
and I see God condemn so many men
why is it that he hasn’t pointed his finger at me?

The house is silent today,
She takes one step outside of the door
and just like that
The house is silent no more.
