Inner Struggle

Inner Struggle 

is it the stars
on a cloak of midnight blue
or the moon beams
dancing through the canopy
that eases reality’s view?

the reflection
in the window pane
begs answer
for it’s tears, not rain,
that stream on the glass

silent cascades
bare the resistance
of approval
prayerfully awaiting 
the dawning acceptance

Time to say goodbye my love

My chain is now frail
Damaged by your weaken link 

My venture begins 
Left with simple forgiveness 

Unwarranted departure.

System Overload

Darkness consumes me
Corrupted thoughts take over
Soul becomes hollow
Self castigation occurs
Tears of blood destroys all hope

The Exodus

Oh this hour is ill
rends those it should reunite
together as one,
yet my wings from you in flight
time it is to say goodbye.

My Dearest

I held her cold hand
She silently slipped away 
I sank into tears
Her gift is on the table 
I wrapped it myself, today.

Hello and Goodbye



Hello and Goodbye The final story of Life As Time marches on Its irreversible path That can never be erased

THE NIGHT WILL ALWAYS COME

Trees swaying at night
Dark…with stars shimmering bright
Silhouettes of you
I hear the music inside
It has stopped and you are gone

Love's city limits

Love’s city limits

Hands still warm but letting go

Stars sparkle in tears

Glimmering eyes say goodbye

I should not have let you go

lamentation


mournful chanting song of only your flowered grace lone, I reminisce at the edge of old green pond sorrow flows on each ripple...

Stationary Prisoner

bidding her farewell,
mist of unsaid confessions
rail track  forever
in legs turned heavy anklets 
--stationary prisoner--

Her Last Footsteps

                                   small and frail, she labors

                                          over the sand

                                       touching the ocean

                                feeling the breeze one last time

                                 before waves of death claim her

loss

height of knowing peace

joyous in splendid wonder

truth master of all

inner heart of each traversed

the wind is untamed and free

My Tom

lonely tears streaming
drown her weariness of life
reaching ever down,
she placed her love like flowers
upon her stalwart, best friend.
