Because tears are meant
To be a symbol of strength
Even in hard days.

Beauty of nature
Why condense it down to God?
Isn’t life enough?

Lookin' after pests
Keepin' a CLOSE eye on 'em
"Those wild animals!"

Roamin' around zoo
Searchin' for sneaky monkey
Hidin' in a tree

Zookeeper gets mad
"Where's Marty, the smartypants!?"
"He TOOK my cage keys!"

Mountain Climbing

I’m climbing  
Above the canyon…the sun
Hits  		the 		rocks

I ascend
As 	I 	take 	risk 	after 	risk

I’m climbing
I 	rely 	on 	my 	own 	strength
I’m doing FINE!

I descend
While	 I 	urgently 	hold 	on
For dear life…

Effulgent sun proffers love 

Above the undergrowth…of
Thorns and weeds

The moon unravels wonders

Journey Through Life

Journey through Life  ©

happiness, the fire
forges our steel to withstand
pain and thorny times

laughter melts metal
cold bath sets the steel mettle
fine blade to cut life

blade wrapped in fine silk
until the next battle comes
pain and blood drip down

A Prayer Interupted

I pray for you cause
I sense selfish confusion 
praying for myself

A spider’s web torn
asunder above the doll
with the missing legs.

"My love is like a red rose It may be beautiful now But my sharp thorns will hurt you My love is like a red rose Yes, I may be fragrant But the closer you get, the more I’ll hurt you." -Lee Hi
Darling rose buds bloom Newborn angel unsullied Snow white untainted Darling rose buds bloom Wrapped around unwary hearts Fangs of vampire Darling rose buds bloom Painted red with trickling blood Crimson burning skies Darling rose buds bloom Clinging where they leak of oil Unmoved by fire Weeping to red death Set aflame by those in pain Darling rose buds bloom

Dangerous Beauty


                                              Droplets on petals

                                      Barbs impale the reaching hands

                                            Fragrance for the soul

Tears and Rain

Drops of rain dripping
Flowing down my sullen face
Blending with my tears

Sweet and salty taste
Drops of rain and tears mingled
Assaulting my lips

With my eyes half closed
I let the tears and the rain
Wash me of my pain

an evening of sex

Love and Pain

Sweet and happy it is...
Crests and troughs like a sine wave,
Bitter and painful it is.

Lips locked jaws 
Sweetened sense 
mounting migraine.
But sweet pain worth it.

Cold Haikus

Look! Mingling with rain a teardrop hesitates once Ah! They didn’t see. A bullfrog just teased Bloating in its mockery A bug flies in, snap! It rolls by unseen Not even her closest friend noticed how it flows. Kokak! Kokak! Jump. Teasing and teasing kokak! All the critters laugh. © Glenn Sentes 03-06-13

Truths, lies, a mix in between
Now shut the hell up!

pain is

Pain is always sharp-
      I hate it but I should not-
            as it has taught me the most.

I'm Done

It makes me sick, it makes
Me Die(just a little more inside), this is
The last time you make me cry. I'm sick of
Your bullshit, I'm sick of your lies,
I'm sick of the fights, I'm sick of the sighs.
I tried to be there for you, 
You pushed me away. 
I cannot understand why you are being this way.
This is the last tome you make me stay.
I can't go on, I can't live this way.
I'm done with this, I'm done with you.
I want you to know I hate you too.
I'm done with your bullshit,
I'm done with your lies.
I'm done loving the one who made me cry.

Walking Through A Field Of Light

Walking Through A Field Of Light

then me and you see it the same way...i care not what happen to this body for the soul will still walk this earth watching over those it shown it love for

And yet the spirit of forgotten pain protects me, not wanting me to travel into the darkness that consumes the soul, for without this body, how can i protect those i love?

i watch and guide them for the body was lost but i shall lead them with a kind head and open arm. i protect their soul so they may keep watching there life grow into something beautiful.the darkness shall flee at the sight of the almighty light that watches my deed and my small soul

but for my last act shall be to vanquish the darkness that threatens life itself. but all things come to an end. what of the times, not yet past, but already forgotten, when i will no longer be there.....

when my fight is done i have no need for this unsettling place and with ever harming word will i walk into that everlasting light if i to be forgotten then that is fine for i have done them good and have made there life into something more then mine was.To be forgotten is fine for i shall not want a legacy

to have forged a life worth remembrance is fine, bu to make someones else worth remembering is all the better, for it means that they shall have a life worthy of my sacrifice, a life worth the pain once experienced, but never remembered, for i am now content.

after this body is lost i wish to be pay myself a gift is what is called.i will be content on not having left something a memory to be mourned for i with's no pain on those who have still they hearts where as i have walked this earth unknowing i died some time ago.let me be free for i am like a animal needing space time and needing that way of life.

then be free from the pain of the remembrance, and transcend to tomorrow, for that is where the future lies. i shall always remember you, but i shall not mourn, for we shall meet again

The lamp light illuminates My messy bedroom And brings me joy to my heart The lamp light turns off quickly The mellow midnight Has revealed its pure beauty The door opens and welcomes The priceless sunrise And inspires me to write poems The morning greets me again The lovely stars dim I miss the midnight wonders!

They Have Taken Their First Steps in My Heart

The pain first took hold of my wrists
In the heart within my heart
My sweet children
Took their first steps.
Rain drips on the windows
There is that which comes
From far away
With hands in handcuffs
I do not know the day or year of humanity...

Stars shine
Thanks to drops falling from trees
The moon springs tight a trap on my pessimism
For a night...

The pain first took hold of my wrists
In the heart within my heart
My sweet children
Took their first steps.

Pain Through Time

Beneath the awning
I stand and contemplate life
All pain included

Hurt and pain gathered
Everything thought within time
Destroying all loss

Crippled Mannequin

No blank page to scribe
No empty spaces to scream
Should I down on knee?

Too much to be seen
Exhibition life had shown 
Privacy in threat

Fortitude concealed
Scratching behind walls of heart
Endurance break down

Love deep, better not
Sacrifice all, better not
Your life, your option
