Used Thoughts Of The Silence

I used to dream in tongues In languages left unspoken Fear of knowing Fear of being the one Twisted in the moment of falling behind Running in the wrong direction  Being lost to time Finding a place to call your own  Then losing the key Fearful memories Alone at last Drunken nights I forget my…

To Hunt A Fox

A fox rests on the shoulder of a mountain Taking in the rays of the sun It raises its head Foot steps draw near On the edge of the forest Creeping along the undergrowth A hunter draws near With gun in hand With vengeance in her eyes The fox tilts his head in amusement Another…

Mother, I hope that you are well

Mother, I hope that you are well I remember lullabies And the subtle feeling of love There were never any hugs Jabs of pain from disappointment On your birthday when no one had any presents You would smile  Understanding you were less Forgotten in your role Loving and kind Never really saying no But now…

Crafted: Neither Bitter Nor Bold

In her hands and far from the eyes of mere mortal men  She crafts a friend  To begin again  Eyes of Jasper to see what the soul hides Ears of elm to listen to the wind  Lips of Sapphire, harsh words do not fade fast  A heart of silver, neither pure nor bitter  Legs of…

These Empty Pages Feel No Pain

I look at empty pages  where the words should be  They gnaw at my being I can not write these feelings down  I can not face them  I am weak Do the strong wither with pages full of words Do they stand and face the wind  Do they scream at their fears I do not…

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

On the hill, there is a cry  Over the mountains and beyond There is a voice  That beckons me to return Return to slumber  Return to peace Return to moments less important than these To simple days When the world revolves on loving thy enemy In their obscure ways To art that spoke of music…

Rain

Rain trickles down my soul  Into my bones And corrupts me once more It should have washed me away  Melted a wicked heart like mine Fuel with regret It rains once more I take it in All the weariness  All my sin It is mine  As I claim it to be Let me wither down…
