Peculiar

Peculiar short poem

Uploaded by Jamin Benjamin


Pretend to be civil,
For unrest is familiar,
Actions by the shrivel,
Accompanied by the peculiar.

Tell me lies,
And truth will follow,
Straighten the ties,
That bind you so hollow.

Swayed by blindness,
In love or thereafter,
Washed out tenderness,
Your eyes reflect laughter.

When you call me to vent,
I call you a martyr,
Straight lines with dents,
Not quite so dapper.

Even in intimidation,
Your voice begins to fade,
Like a song that was sung,
On the edge of a blade.
