Tom Wood

Rome

Struggling to see through this fog

Stimulate my senses, dirty air

Cleanse my hands by burning out

The sin that’s found within

 

My bones

 

The infrastructure of my tomb

It holds me in and whispers doom

 

It’s thick enough I start to choke

Spiritual asthma has me down

Rinse and repeat, my hands are gone

If it offendeth me, cut it off

 

My home

 

Four cornerstones that split in two

And yet there were nine halves

 

Staggering aimlessly, nowhere to go

You thought you’d find me unharmed

You don’t know me, or you don’t know.

No, I don’t think you could understand

 

My phone’s-

 

off, I turned it off for this, for you

And you couldn’t even look me in the eyes

 

You’re conquering my thoughts without trial

Where is my say? Why are you here?

Judas still called Him the proper name

Still yet I’m here on my hands and knees

 

Rome

 

Bipolar in the sense of my Telestial tithes

 

And yet I still only find you peculiar

    The See at various times no longer sees, its holiness lost to the striving of the centuries. Hope that thought was not misaligned in the reading of this effulgent poem. Thanks for sharing.
