Everyone is Broken

Nothing left to hide
Everything is crystal clear
I must sound absurd

How does one confide
In shattered mirrors held dear
Using only words

Why do I reside
In broken hearts filled with fear
Cage confines the bird

Take it all in stride
Love will resurrect good cheer
Mend my broken world

There in the shadows

Yes love is scary-
but it's more what comes after
that stops me trying.

The Casino Changed My Life

Tried it once
Left craving for more
Addiction took hold

blue evening

blue evening haunts me
memories swirl through my mind
restless as blown leaves

delicate dusk light
shades the garden twilight-teal
indigo shadow

the dying sun bleeds
day folds like a whorled flower
dark envelops me

windows' glowing eyes
gaze upon my solitude
fear's cold hand grips me

whispering voices
commune with me through silence
spectres of the past

night stirs soul sadness
alone in a soulless home
blue tears' waterfall

scars left behind

cigarette burns
up and down her left arm

night sweats

black shapes ghost the night
distant sirens curdle dreams
crickets soothe my fear

A blow to the heart

She crys out in pain
No one there to comfort her
She suffers alone
