Brick Walls

Brick walls

With just one more line, this might one day become a song:


I beat against brick walls for days and for nights

before a crack or two, I thought I could sneak through

shone brightly in my eyes like dentistry lights

in a dark, dark room.

One part at a time, I tried so hard to squeeze

a painfully confused version of the truth

into a tiny hole not built for bodies

between pain and proof.

And while camped out there, I breathed in all kinds of air

fresh and stale sighs, the “whats, wheres and whys”

Carried by the wind from all sides…
