Hearts Break

Hearts Break

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

 Commitments not kept,

souls emptied out,

…moving one’s faith in humanity to doubt.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

 Fakes,

standing for nothing,

blowing like answers in the wind.

Sins.

Programmable,

 serve and obey,

…so long as the middle class is doing ok.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

Nuclear families no more,

not for better or worse,

living lives cursed.

Everything is slowly dying,

…including planet earth.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

Waking up to count the hours until you can sleep again.

Disrupted plans,

inevitable conclusions,

…all to support the American Dream illusion.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

Running fast,

past memories,

don’t know who’s real.

Real can be bought for 1995.

With time memories fade,

…but how does one process painful memories today?

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

Broken chairs, broken tables, broken dishes,

unfulfilled wishes.

Years of marriage erased.

Hatred, confusion,

drug using.

Sorrow and sadness,

alcohol and madness.

Broken people.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

American Dreaming can only last so long,

then you realize that its all wrong.

Exported slavery,

consume all you can,

do anything to maintain an upper hand.

****

In the distance, through dirty lenses, I saw hearts break.

I saw hearts break,

from the actions’ people take.
