O Metropolitan! I Will No Longer Hide

O Metropolitan!

You once treated me as a rising star

I felt your right hand on my head

Sending me up the ranks, i feared

So quickly, I wasn’t ready

When I became a fallen star

You quickly turned to another instead

No time for forgiveness or thanks, my tears

You never discerned I wasn’t steady, my fears

I was a wounded child and a wonder soul

You saw one without the other.

I can no longer trust hinding behind black robes

If I’m going to be good let me be

In my own skin, In this world

Where I must be honestly me

Out in the open, face to face, heart to heart

Where love can be shared

And the secrets of hiddenness are not feared, from the start

Not hidden away, a monk

I never wanted to be

you didn’t see

My heart my soul

So sunk, I couldn’t breathe

But every new thing enlivened until it got old

God made me

Never to be alone

That’s just what you made of me

Its what you sold

To me, I wanted to share my heart

With God and man

But it’s what you couldn’t see

In me, for God and All

Me standing tall

Naked before all

No I am no saint

Never will be in this hermitage of illusion

And pretense.

I know Your Beatitudes

Will never understand

I know I must land on my feet

In order that my heart may bend the knee

To Thee, O Lord!

Greater mercy can only be His

And not from you. So say goodbye

Remember me in your prayers

I will remember you. O Metropolitan!

I will no longer hide.

Is There Nothing More?

Dinner is on the wall Children crying, infant screaming Fear freezes her when he calls Between them there is silence peeling Its the way they only know Its how love they struggle to show He knows nothing more She can’t bear the blood and sores She understands she must flea But how else can she Be? _______________ Copyright © 2020 HeardWords America

His Love for Her

Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say? Who was it that carried me on the bier? Well, will you pray for me? Or can't you wait to see another man, if only you can?  Life with you was never,  the kind I wanted.  You called me "friend" That was after you put an end to our coupling. That was after you had my ring  cut off your finger. I can hear you singing after that. You had your own definition for being a swinger. A woman, free and unattached. Since then we've never been intimate. No matter the many times I had to wait. You would love me  Only by cleaning and laundrying for me. Still you'd never give me a bath. We had a life together you never let last. Don't leave me here!  Don't you leave me here this way!  What will all my friends say?     "She buried him, with his love for her.      She's not so demur."  _________ copyright ©️ 2023 SDKilmer, LLC All Rights Reserved www SDKi

Adoptee Chameleon

I love the way you move. All swank and cool. I'm a dank fool canvas. I'd like to be you. Let's see who, I can be. I love the way you speak. All soft and sexy. Everything 'bout you is neat. I'm just an entity incomplete. I'd like to be you. Let's see who, I can be. Adoptee chameleon Born to be Apparently, a utilitarian personality. Adoptee chameleon. Born to be Nothing much to see, apparently. Nobody said it would be like thees. All my own history. All blood relatives. I'm a severed twig of my family trees. They said the tree caught fire. From which they saved me. What bald liars! They took me on. An adoptee chameleon. Gill or Jillian? No one could tell. All adoptees seem to be a chameleon. How I love your body. Oh how I love your manners. Does it really matter That I want to be like you? Got nothing else to inform me. So let's see, who I am. If I can break free from Being an Adoptee Chameleon Of different colors. With different lovers. To
