Headline Poem 7/16/14 -- Fragile Man

Fragile Man 

Rugged veins and sinew dripping wet with 
sweat

In the Solitude of longing for acceptance, despite regret 

Despising rejection,
soul dying 
from 
a shattering ego 
and lingering truth 

     The obvious suit
     in an empty deck 

She's not 
the one 
he'll bring
     Home 
to 

 the momma who started it all 
 The source of the starving and 
grasping, 
He lets It go,

Whispering 
     from  down   the hall, 
     through honest teeth and cracks, 

 'thank you for believing in me.'
