 Big crocodiles lips
Wide hipopotomus hips....
From her paws blood drips

Waiting for the call

Cold and ghostly pale
awaits to be called home ...
date and day unknown

The Essence Remains

her dolls still sprawled across room

In Comma

Peaceful and relax
At rest but traverse freely
Altered consciousness

Will to access all
Suddenly achieve by thoughts
Radiating oneness

Empathy ignites
As parameters extend
Embrace love without.

A Promise dies as petals burn

You do not love me                                                                                  
Love is more than just a word                                                                
Thorns have reached their depth

Closed Door

the door has been closed
it has been bolted and locked
don't try the window

my heart is secure
your words are no longer "keys"
soul sanctuary

image is tarnished
no longer will I welcome
a fallen hero

We can only reminisce:
About lost chances.

Barred Revelations

Brain rewired
The spine of prison rattles
Hearts harden

Hungry dogs
Chomp on the bars and the bones
Of his hope

He is lost
Dreams and fears confirm his tears
Time is gone

Guilty truths
Drizzle down his swollen cheeks
“God, I’m yours. . .

Lift my eyes
For your light is my way to 
Shame my foes. . .

My clothes droop
My body slumped against death
This soul swells. . .

I need her. . .
If only you knew how much
I miss her. . .

I need You
For You have stayed here with me
Patiently. . .”

The sun peeks
His sad eyes take in the warmth
His heart melts

We are free
The sky is open to you
Now Stay Strong

A gentle wind

Blows in from the east
Disturbing my thoughts and heart 
Concluding of life

..Till death do Us part...death remains...

Her  fourth  left finger
holds a polished gold band,
Rough is the inside.

We exchanged harsh words...
I let you walk out that door
without a goodbye

Submerged you are beyond sight,
But you are still here.

The Death of my Cousin's wife, April 17th 2011

Zum Tod der Frau meines Cousins am 17. April 2011 / The Death of my Cousin's wife, April
17th 2011/ La muerte de la mujer de mi primo en abril 17 de 2011  (Kintaishi)

Ein ausgelöschtes Leben
Die Zeit vorweg genommen
Verschwimmende Gedanken 
Wie Bilder, die verblassen

An annihilated life
Anticipated  in time
And then almost blurring thoughts
Like some fading images

Una vida aniquilada
Anticipado en tiempo 
Borrosos pensamientos
Desvaneciendo imágenes

       I see Her image
She wipes the tears from my eyes
"Welcome Home, My LOVE"

"Welcome Home My LOVE"
The sonnet of Lenore's voice
Singing in my ears

Singing in my ears
For the eons of ALWAYS
Dissapating Tears

Dissapating Tears
I had cried throughout my youth
Dried Forevermore

Dried Forevermore
The oceans of my sorrow
My future begins

My future begins
Through the Pearly Gate,I walk
  I see Her Image

an eagle guards their bodies. . . .
