The Frailty Of Large Ideals

For me the world is built on big ideas Large ideals, like kindness and somber thoughts Mournful visions of the past  Mindful planning of the future For a world so large, yet so small I weep, like a child that has just lost its mother without understanding the gravity of lost  I weep, face strained…

My Friends Are Finding New Places

The other day as I wandered out loud  “My friends are finding new places to call their own.” The misery of being alone set in  In those new places are new faces Jokes that I may never hear  Stories of childhoods I thought were meant for me My friends are finding new places  In which…

I WILL DENY YOUR BEING

I won’t sing you praises Or make mention of your name I will not worship at your feet Won’t make offerings on your altar I will not feed the person you have become I will ignore it Deny your existence Forget who you used to be  This is my journey  My road to explore I…

The Dragon Under The Hill

I Will Forget Your Name

When the light fades from your face  And the moon refuses to shine  Will you accept your demise I will say it softly  As if it were a kiss by a fairy I will forget your name  Little pieces of who you were  Will release you from this world I will say it fiercely  Taking…

"A pity, I wish you were my son."

As I lie here hoping for the end I need your words to remind me  Of a simpler time When the words no longer died in my throat I scream and shout  Only silence greets me now I wish to yell  To tell you that my life has meaning  To prove to you that I…

The Beating of a Drum

In the hollow of the tree Lives the beating of a drum Tip tap it goes all night long When the leaves tend to fall It beats a little louder, a little faster than before  This tip tap tapping at my door And when the moon rises To greet the father sky  It beats a…
