dining on ashes
we sit discussing
the impeding doom.
Bells peal while our eyes fall over tiled mosaics
carrying our thoughts to water
carrying us over the faces of friends
never to be seen again
we should have spoken.
the present fragments from the past
while outside the gloom grows
like late afternoons over
innocent children who play
without a care and
cannot yet hear
the approach of
vampires on horseback.Read More
She lay up pon the mountain
Dressed all up most white
Shivered shook n' giggled
Sat up all the night.
She teetered pon the treelines
Fondled lichen sour
Gasped and clung to depths unknown
Ignored God's call to power.
The skiers laughed and chuckled
Goaded her to run
She sat just quiet ignored them
Basked in ancient sun.
The taunts and shouts she echoed back
She didn't budge one bit
Made love to many humans
She hungered for a flit.
Then came one day a handsome... Read More
There were low voices
that could have been mistaken for chanting...
but it was not.
There were heads cowled and bowed
that could have been mistaken for praying...
but they could not.
There were many eyes -moist and reddened-
that could have been mistaken for crying...
but they were not.
The smell of a cigarette’s burning filter lingered as disease might...
Two explored with urgency one body
it could have been mistaken for love...
but it was not.Read More
Another set of excuses
Another pack of lies.
Sometimes I wonder why I even try
Why I bother crying
Why I tolerate lying
Why I'm continually dying inside
These days its much harder to hide it.
Why am I trying to avert this certain disaster?
What kind of happily ever after could come of this?Read More
There are times when you want to get away
Running away from the beeping of your mind
You foster the pain in your heart
Letting it nourish the raw wound of betrayal ***
This world needs a giant sweep
Clearing away all the dust
Of hate and ignorance
Washing clean this intolerance***
Lifting a hand to hurt a fellow being
Inscrutable disregarded darkness
Oblivion to values of the soul
Creating incomprehensible anguish ***
Through time actions speaking
Louder than a drum pounding

Never knew myself,till I met you.
Never knew what trust meant,till I broke it.
Never knew I hated silence,till you chose it.
Never knew how I felt,till I lost you.
Never knew what winning was,till I failed.
Never knew what hope meant,till I lost it.
Never knew the mild breeze,
till life knocked the breath out of me.
Never knew the beauty of sunshine,
till the rain came by.
Never knew how easy it is to advice,
till I tried to follow.
Never knew how strong I am,
till I fought back.
Life is one lesson,... Read More
