Confusion Beyond The Door

"I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination."

I turn to the door.
Do I leave reality?
Tell me, who am I?

If I go back will I ever be able to return to this place I now call "MyLand?"
I've stalled for too long but it doesn't feel right.
I'm leaving my friends behind, but...they never cared about me!
All they did was use me!
And what happened when I wasn't good enough anymore?- they abandoned me, left me out in the blazing heat to die.
Good-bye reality, it's my imagination's turn now.

Just one little step.
What's this beating in my chest?
I won't regret it!
One step is all it will take.
Please God, make the door vanish!

HAIKU MOON

(Dedication: For Dave Wood, the Lyric Man)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Teary moonlight
Flash from heaven;
Lovers unite

~~~~~~~~~


Teenage lover boy
Bus-stop waiting;
Delayed arrival

~~~~~~~~~


Nicotine addict
Puffing for dear life;
Carcinogenic highs

~~~~~~~~~


Grass blades
Protrude through cracks;
Sidewalk stone slabs

~~~~~~~~~


College vacation
Rowdy students arguing;
Monsoon weather hurls

~~~~~~~~~


Housefly fly past
Unceremoniously;
Decadent visit

~~~~~~~~~


Stars decorate
Night sky twinkling;
Croaking August frogs

~~~~~~~~~


Anxious To-Do List
Smudge of raindrops;
Go with the flow

~~~~~~~~~


Crazy poet laughs
Mad self-talk;
Intoxicating grief

~~~~~~~~~


Back track then
To nowhere far;
Celestial timing

~~~~~~~~~


Words carved
Old tree trunk code;
Open secret

~~~~~~~~~


Grassy flowers
Humble affirmations;
Perennial song

~~~~~~~~~


Stray voices call
In these woods;
Bird song melody

~~~~~~~~~


Romantic ideas
Dehydrated fruits;
Winter sonata

~~~~~~~~~


Self-made home movie
Unknown stars;
Awkwardly famous

~~~~~~~~~
