POEM ” THE KEYS TO THE BROKEN HOUSE” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 1 person, night

A million tears have come and died
a million more rain deep inside
this broken house that sits upon the shelf
a cloud that breaks an open sky
that stains the windows of the eye
and eats away your state of mental health
for all the smiles that fade away
when promise falls on anger bay
you hide into the shadows of your room
and watch the time that beats the clock
for every tick you seldom talk
and sleep away emotions with a broom
the signs of hurt that scars the skin
as you let all your demons in
a poison pen to give yourself a kick
you push and probe a popping vein
to watch as life goes down the drain
that hits you like a thousand tons of brick
and there to knock upon your door
to sweep you off the dungeon floor
a helping hand to make you see the light
you need to change your spaded suit
and flush of everything you shoot
to clear the dirty sockets of your sight
and take of every single ounce
into this life with all that counts
it’s time to take the turn into the bend
you have a chance to take the keys
and break the chains and cure disease
to find your heart gets better in the end…
