Two poems by Jason Lyons

The Need

With a crack
Of the whip
He cowers
His soul sweats
Bullets of worry
He wants a piece
But the sacrifice
Cat of nine-tails
Shards biting
Into his flesh
He bleeds the tears
Of a million Warriors

Confusion and Emptiness

To love and let go
Someday I will see
Your love and mine
This is not the time
Another still survives
The space of mind
Is where I hold you
Love let it be
