Kamika’s Words
Marsha Staiger


Bad Connection
Kamika Cooper
Inspiration Piece

Those things you thought you knew
just wouldn’t leave you alone
clouded your vision so thoroughly
you never found your way home

you were misdirected, you were forced to interpret
things you couldn’t connect

Fantasies that never came true
left three voids in your soul
fallen graces, empty times and spaces
each divisible by zero

you laughed out loud, you began to throw out
things that wouldn’t connect

Greedy hands came up to grab you
pulled you down to the cold
told you secrets of resentment and regret
then forgot all they’d shown

you fought with all your might, you rose to shine a light
on things you shouldn’t connect

Please don’t give up just yet
