Garden Games

Just…being…pushed
to the edge
and then cracking
Just…being…lost
in the high
of the venom
Just…being…stormed
at the gates
near to heaven
Just…being…wronged
all over
again

Just…wanting…more
than has
been given
Just…taking…all
that is fair
within reach
Just…being…god
all alone
for a moment
Just…coming…down
to laugh
at the fall


This poem originally appeared at Stephen Jarrell Williams’ poetry site Dead Snakes back in December of 2014 along with A River Between Us.
