B is for Breach

Blood
But not yours
Blue and then red
Betokening some demise
Bleeding its slow fulfillment

Beers
Bubbling in streams
Brewed in stinking
Brim filled
Boilers

Blind
Boozers guzzling
Brews to forget the
Borrowed seconds
Built to one day
Burn out
“Burp!”

Build
Battle or
Break walls
But don’t let yourself succumb to
Beguiling fading substances
Blathering lies in your
Brooding fuzzy
Bilious
Brain

Blinders
By no means
Blot out the falling
Botched and jerking machine
Breaking down in slow-motion while
Bringing along its wretched
Bundle of
Beings

Blurs only obscure reality leading to
Bewilderment and a nervous stupor.
Beyond these patchwork therapies,
Betraying their half-willing slaves,
Bright lights or clean eyes
Behold the complex
Blend of pain and
Bliss in life
Breathing

  4. Thanks Jingle, this is part of a series I am doing. I'm going to try and feature every letter of the alphabet in a different poetic style or voice while discussing a relevant or moving subject.
    Last month I did one called P is for Pithy - it is more like prose but I think it turned out even better than this one.
