A heart divided
Hurt knows no bounds anymore
Only time will tell

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

The Casino Changed My Life

Tried it once
Left craving for more
Addiction took hold

There in the shadows

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

night sweats

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

No one there to comfort her

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

Darkness will Betray You


                                     Dancing in the dark,
                               Winking at the moons slick grin,
                                   Feasting with your flesh,

                                 Asleep in motions madness,
                                 Paralyzed in cheap appeals,
                                Empty pleasures fade to dust,
                                    Frozen from its chill.

After you left, I 
Found my pride crouching inside
A homeless man’s box

I crawled inside and 
Collapsed, releasing the last
Of love’s butterflies

Four Pieces

Carnival is here.
Crowds jam the street with laughter.
He plays solitaire

High above the street
A lonely window shines bright.
Love is sold tonight.

Sits by the window
In a smoky, crowded bar.
Life passes him by

Crumpled note on floor
Tells the story of love gone.
Time now for dying.

Each new success ekes my soul,
