Wide hipopotomus hips....
From her paws blood drips

sweet pea scent
her dolls still sprawled across room
bed unmade

Skin Stretcher

I Slit Her Throat Quick.

I'll Write Poems on Her Paled Skin,

It'll Stretch out Nicely.

Waiting for the call



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



Penned on April 9 2015

A Promise dies as petals burn

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

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.

NEON LIGHTS

Look out my window
Street below lures it's victims
Neon lights blinking

Remorse

As life fleets us by,
We can only reminisce:
About lost chances.

NO FATHER'S DAY

he died in the war
no Daddy and no present
the child.. never born

*I grieve for the children, their joy and smiles, who will never be..
Because their future Daddy died in the war!

a lost little girl

a lost little girl
on an sunken cypress stump
waits for centuries

Not a Man Anymore

A tiny Heart pain
and now I'm less than a man
Right side numb Can't write

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

End Times II

We all want to go
to heaven, but no one wants
to die to get there.

A gentle wind


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

Pumping black blood
Sea life falls dead with a thud

I let you walk out that door
without a goodbye

Drift into the depths.
Submerged you are beyond sight,
But you are still here.

TAXI DRIVER---you talking to me

                                    

                                       Confronts reflection,
                                    psychotic image triggers

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

wraithlike snow

wraithlike snow
rising breath of white ice

Soar Free

where the brave were laid
an eagle guards their bodies. . . . 
their spirits soar free

blonde bombshell

she drinks too much wine
chemo has been kind to her
she’s seen her child wed

Demented Man

Vacant bloodshot eyes
Stare at one spot on the wall
Feeding tubes and scrubs

I should let him die
Mercy killers dropped the ball
So I pull the plug

Memorial Day

on Memorial Day
the flowers fill the grave yard
people reminisce

Bleeding FOR Life

The ground was so soaked
Where His blood ran down the cross.
Dead but giving life!

The tree He was on,
God let grow for His Own Son
To die on, yet live!

The tomb on the hill
was just borrowed for week end.
Stone was rolled away.

On that third morning
A bright light glowed from within.
Jesus had risen.

Women came to see.
Death where is thy victory?
Grave where is thy sting?

Soon

       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
