simple deeds

By: Shelbi Henny

programming the diameter
triggering the motions that force
my eyes to see this beyond
living in moments that make 
blossoming truths
to look in the mirror 
at what I've become
once so optimistic 
now a being that is completely numb
turning over the leaf of wanting
the contents of love's frivolous
to the believer of stolen moments
letting things happen organically
then the pressures of mechanically 
forcing the cards I dealt
and being seen as the power trip
creating moments that make me blush
opening my arms to the clouds that be
yearning for nothing in attributes
clinging to beauty
