The Pain

by

Brent J. Kofron

The pain I feel is immense
But it seams meaningless
Surely more important people
Have felt worse

Can I even imagine
The torture of the man
That dropped the first nuclear bomb
The deaths of millions on his soul

Surely Jesus & Gandhi
Were tortured while watching
Their people suffer
The trials of the time

Even our illustrious
President Clinton
Must feel some kind of pain
For the things that he has done

But I can barely stand
The pain that I feel
While thinking of how
I have ruined my life


Racism

by

Brent J. Kofron

He sees me
With contempt in his eyes
He looks down on me
Because Iím not like him
He rages at me
For thoughts I donít have
He hates me
Because Iím white

First Thoughts

by

Brent J. Kofron

What does she look like without her clothes?
I want to run my hands through her hair
It is soft and silky
My hands delicately trace
Down her back then around to her belly
Slowly I move my hands up between her breasts
Then down around their sides and lift them
To feel their weight before I squeeze
Her nipples with my fingers
Back up her to shoulders
I can feel the pulse in her neck
Now down her arms to her slender fingers
I kiss her full lips as my hands move to her hips
Then around to the small of her back
Down to follow the cleft of her ass
Then lift her to her toes
I let her down to feel her legs
My lips move down her neck
I stop briefly at each breast
My hands lightly skim the back of her knees
Down, down to her stomach I lick
Her waist pushes forward
As my hands reach her feet
I kiss wet lips through a silky mound of hair
And I wonder
What does she look like without her clothes?
As she walks by

White Line Fever

by

Brent J. Kofron

I have a good job
a nice place to live
and good friends
but I want to run

And I don't know why
I have to get away

I try to sleep
but my mind won't stop
thinking of all the things
that I need to do

And I don't know why
I have to get away

My brain burns with the need
to get behind the wheel
and turn the music up so loud
that I can't hear my own thoughts

And I don't know why
I have to get away

Everyone tells me to
grow up and be responsible
but they don't understand that
this isn't what I want

And I don't know why
I have to get away

I've run before and
ruined my life
I never want to do it again
but the thoughts won't stop

And I don't know why
I have to get away

I look in the mirror and see
the tears running down my face
and I look straight ahead
as I follow the white line

The Dreaming

by

Brent J. Kofron

I crawl out of bed
and look at the paper
raped and murdered
at only thirteen
pictures tell all
right on the front page

Please God tell me
that Iím still dreaming

I turn on the TV
and the anchor tells me
bright and early
of genocide
and they show it all
in color video

Please God tell me
that Iím still dreaming

The dj on the radio
tells of suicides on the rise
all day long hearing stories
of drugs and murder and crime
all topped off with police brutality
then a bridge falls down

Please God tell me
that Iím still dreaming

How can we live like this
when you canít feel safe
walking after dark
and the human race
has gone insane

Please God tell me
that Iím still dreaming

Oh, please God let me
wake from this dreaming

If You Stay

by

Brent J. Kofron

Itís time for a decision
you donít know what to do
we fight all the time
neither of us is happy
even the good times are sad
youíre scared to give up
the only love youíve ever known

I know what Iíll do if you go
but what do I do if you stay?

I can see in my head
Iíll cry and be lonely
but Iíll get through
I have my friends
and my job and hobbies
Iíll be happy again one day
and Iíll meet someone new

I know what Iíll do if you go
but what do I do if you stay?

If you donít walk away
will I have the strength
to do what needs done
or will I let my fears
hold me to a thing I hate
can I be a man
or am I just a coward

I know what Iíll do if you go
but what do I do if you stay?

All the women look down on me
Never happy with what they see
Out of shape and way overweight
Living a lie I can't keep straight
Pretending that I do not feel
Laughter that they barely conceal
Hold the tears until I'm alone
In the shit hole that I call home
Never knowing the love they miss
When they casually dismiss
My heart so strong but never heard
All my love is undiscovered
