Lakewood Times

    Original Poem by Saige Rook

    Analysis leaves logic locked up far away.

    Abuse is not abandoned.

    Consciousness curls, choking on reality.

    Inconsistencies impact opinion.

    Stored as secrets, unlocked by code.

    Confusion ingests all attention.

    Guidance is eaten by guilt.

    Decisions lie.

    Anger installs itself where sorrow knows its home.

    Recognition repeals from the situation.

    Time offers comfort with questions.

    Secrets cannot be kept by time, from time.

    Bodies falter where pressure prevails.

    Tension stays.

    Change is begged to, misinterpreted.


    Promise praises allegiance.

    Only pieces fall out.

    Apology screams in silent stillness.

    Where are we now?
