Kent Holman Poems
She sat looking at me, Not listening to a word. Every time we talked, she Said my opinion was absurd—
Just Some Ink
My mind is open My pen poised Over a blank sheet of paper; Silently I wait for inspiration.
Softly kissing The nape of her neck. So white so smooth.
A Children's toy box, a wooden soldier, a block or two, and a ball therein.
Waiting kills the mood. Constantly it gnaws at your nerves Like some flesh eating disease.
Her Shrill Voice
She made me bleed With her words. Her shrill voice
Sitting here the little man stirring. Feeling like a pubescent boy trapped in a man's body.
It Is Not Enough To Say
It is not enough to say I love you It is not enough to say I care about you
The Death Of Hope
Pessimism invades the soul Choking hope Can you hear hope's
Do What You Must!
Do what you must! For it makes you Who you are.
In the valley where technology thrives People are dying
Spontaneous combustion Exploding feelings across The wide open page As if to say—
Staring, and waiting for that moment To express our deep held desire. How the passion sets us both on fire.
Waiting kills the mood.
Constantly it gnaws at your nerves
Like some flesh eating disease.
Stomping your feet or
Tapping your fingers
Waiting is maddening.
Relentlessly it lingers
Ever present in your mind.
Let the madness go.
Calmly assuage your nerves.
Waiting is inevitable.
