The One That Survived

She stands
In the graveyard
Where he sleeps forever
Beneath the heavy weight of all 
Her tears.

Loves End


                              Grasping
              Every ounce of love you give me
                   Knowing it shall soon end
                          Shall it last me
                             No chance

Dark

 
My tears, Full of sorrow, My destiny to weep; And yet, yet I find sweet beauty, In death. ____________________ June 4, 2015 Cinquain

INTOLERANCE

Each shoe,
a life He knew,
buds of His olive tree-
next time perhaps,it could be you..
or me !

Pact

The Pact!
True love intact
headstone unravels all,
their land infertile took them both.
Invoked.

Nightfall

Night falls,
Darkness prevails,
Summoning the reaper,
To collect the gruesome harvest,
Death holds.

Missing and Knowing

Missing
Your hand in mine
My weary heart has swept
The wishes into dreams that kept
You here

Knowing
Fate can’t deny
What two souls take and bind
On the other side, I will find
You there

Final Flight

Last hug.

Torn from my arms,

you fly with the angels.

I see Heaven's gate opening-----

The Ugly Truth

Riches
Rampant beneath
The surface, a body
Dressed in curves, hard edges, and sea
Bounty.

Goodness
That is needed
By the masses, a gift,
Yet used for self gain carelessly 
A rift.

By those
Who pursue greed
Seeking gains and power
Without the checks and balance of
Nature.

We see
The ugly truth
Over the globe, high bill
Of disasters and waste so crude
Oil Spills.

A Mask To Hide The Truth To Hide The Lies To Hide Me

A Mask To Hide The Truth To Hide The Lies To Hide Me


I wear the mask of lies
I wear the mask of hidden truths
Together we create a dangerous reputation of deceit and heartbreak

I am sadness,hate,and fury
I am happiness,joy,and passion
Together we bring about great chaos

I am your deepest fear and regret
I am your greatest achievement and your biggest hope
Together we create the ties that bind us to others in our lives

I am burned and bruised
I am cover in hugs and kisses
Together we create hurt and promise death and unknown future

I was once happy 
I was once dead
I was once alive
I was once sad
I was once here
I was once there
I was once broken
I was once fixed
Today we wear a mask to hide the truth of or past or future and our present.
How I wish to free myself from this curse
Oh how I wish I could free you
But we share a mask one of pain and regret and guilt.
We have killed, we have lied,and we hurt
This is our mask this is our death this is us our mask of truth our mask to lies

I Fall I Die

I fall
Upon her lair
Of breathless seduction.
Although it seems to me quite 
quaint,
I die

Young Girls Pain

Love
Deceitful, wicked
Weeping, cringing, loathing
Things children shouldn’t feel
Hate
 
Intimacy
Repulsive, severe
Struggling, bleeding, collapsing
My pain continues unheard
Father
 
Hope
Abandoned, faulty
Hiding, listening, praying
Life is my suffering
Justice
 
Purpose
Forbidden, fruitless
Reeling, clutching, grinning
The agony has ended
Redemption

Witness To Grand Death

They fall gracefully; leaves die in their golden days. Awed, I watch terpsichoreans' Grand Death.

"When someone dies"

        'When someone dies'
        It usually rains.......
        because of their pain....
        Very seldom the sun shines
        'When someone dies.....
         in days ahead the sun will shine
         for peace that lyes.....
         'When someone dies'
