What Ifs

By Scott Bailey © 2014

What ifs hang on
Like poisoned barbs
Even in the face of reality
All reason tells you
Let them go
Rip them from the flesh
Yet deep they go
Sharp their points
Beyond the anaesthetic
Of mere words
So rise up
From the river
Of doubt
Rip that flesh and bleed
Step on the shore of tomorrow
Healing first needs hurt

Relentless

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Shameful behaviour
Disgusting is the message
Relentless at men

Senryu: Cross

Fleeing from killers
The child runs desperately
To fill out a form
