poetry by j matthew waters

assassinations and suicides

I’ve been lost so many times
it’s a wonder I’m still here
inconsistently running away
only to return to mixed reviews

do not put much faith in open arms
they’re a far cry from open minds
let alone open hearts

I’ve long lost count of shady characters
played on screen and in real-time
stealing my past lives and
replacing them as their own

july two thousand eighteen
