Heart Break Routine
Author: Pondering Red


heavy snow on rusty leaves
makes my path a little bit harder
a little bit of beauty
a little bit of heartache
makes my day so bittersweet
snow crystals tickle my nose

i walk amidst the billboards past
the corner souvlaki restaurant
where the girls all have shapely legs
where the menu never changes
i crave the rounded potato fries..warm

i see the lights in your windows
heavy curtains hiding a flat world of films
and an unbalanced haven of niceness and cruelty
my eyes cannot find my path of tao verses
my heart is beating with sweetness and revenge

i walk in the night throwing the garbage
kicking the slush on the sidewalk
hiding my self from all the strangeness
in this familiarity of friendly neighbours
and summertime memories and leering pumpkins

i wonder how to get my sanity back
without its routine, without the anxious ritual
i revel in future moments of flowing peace
someone asks for directions
i need to know more than where the highway is

the head of the girl on the huge building poster
has been ripped off and a yellow splash of paint
leaves a signature and a statement
i have none..i have no words
my tongue is bruised
