Reality Shows – Poetry – Thought Collage

Reality Shows

Heavy heart drawing lines
Times and floating balloons
Full of dust
Feeling giddy
Barriers escorted in chains

Insist on cow-towing
Making broken teams

Spun out cars; filling beds with bleeding tears
Fears crumble in pillows filled with friends
Never crushed just stirred with a slice
Served on a plate with steam

Just to say it wasn’t for trying
Denying my part
Forgetting the apprehension
The growing tension and disbelief
In myself and others
A bad reputation
Crashing hopes
Bad dreams
