The Journey
Smaller stones
breaking down
larger stones, 
life is a deluge
of abrasions;

flesh no match
for streaming
elements--

clouds gathering
becoming storms--
they know the ritual,
and time’s eroding power

(Yet, no one can convince me
that love is not omnipotent--

and that I, somehow, am
not part of her
eternal flow)

Pushed by waters,
molded by...Read More

Fruit of Your Labor
"The sweetness of summer,
Blooms from the darkness of winter

Plants pulled from the earth,
By the sun, proving it’s worth

Life flows,
Bees sow

Pollinating the gifts we receive,
From plants and trees

A bounty of goodness, juicy and sweet,
Amazed by nature and this feat

Year after year,...Read More

The once magnificent garden had become a paradise of weeds towering high

Ragwort and dandelion shedding their seeds took over the lonely asylum

Rakes shears shovels and secateurs rested where Tim had left them to dwell

Mocking and taunting stinging nettles and thistles...Read More

I fear our next encounter; 
haunted by your sight. 

Your presence penetrates my heart like a knife. 

Your not a man but an intruder, 
forcing your way, judge and juror. 

Hand down your penalty, much we must take.

Tim had entered the state of a corpse while
the chorus assaulting his purulent soul festered
Callouses on his corpus callosum pretended
there was no connection just chaos exhumed

Corpuscles splattered astray ice in his vessels
in the same vein of demise as so often...Read More

Premium Member Buried Alive
These walls....
they laugh at me but no one else hears
They steal the very breath of me
...but no one seems to notice
They blare a suffocating silence
Leave invisible abrasions from unseen restraints

These walls I once called home
These walls have become my coffin

Candor Mortis
My autopsy room is a confessional, 
where killers in absentia divulge 
their sins through bodies
rigid and frigid, mutilated and mute.

Graffiti of abrasions, contusions and lacerations
reenact without deceit or reservations
a catalogue of perversions and violations.

Rage, hatred, greed, jealousy, sickness 
explode and...Read More

Alone, Not Lonely
I am alone and I have set boundaries
Like these islands separated by water.
Alone, not lonely, for my heart is at peace,
I'm free and complete in my solitude here.

My existence breathes without the abrasions
Of demands and constraints that burden so.
For a...Read More

ORDERED DEGREE OF CHAOS
AND one hand clapping against 

the shuttered storm cellar doors is 

never a reason to deny ability:

like mushroom clouds as falling 

tears splatting fragments of 

dusted minds – by parched perched 

gills of neon fossils; the signs are

here, there, and...Read More

Premium Member suture my wounded soul
abused as a small child, 
so meek and so damn mild-
innocence brought sadness, 
in adulthood came madness. 

daddy couldn’t put the bottle down, 
he tried and failed many a time-
too many bruises black and brown, 
falling back down every time...Read More

Could Go
4/22/17


No intentions of being misleading
Could go by bleeding
Is one way of leaving
As the heart stops beating
And the lungs stop breathing

Also could be caused from exsanguination

Across a pagan nation
Could go by strangulation
Which'll cause and make abrasions
With no intentions of making a...Read More

quick gestures
quick gestures
times seem subdued
though somehow not alert
moments begin to intrude
captured by phrases 
never seen abrasions
mute 
intentions fade as time is payed
fools wage's are waisted pages
redundant as it seems
tongue will find means 
as it wrestles with the ink
gives the mind time...Read More

My friend
 Carla 
was trying 
to rescue me 
from Tony
the tyranny 
of his beastility
See:
Carla has ownership
of her own 
battles to win
And I
  wasn't ready 
to let her 
abrasions

Although:

Divine Intimacy
Love, now
With the end nearing
Of this dated form
Called mine,
You increase! (Your blessed
Virus taking firmer hold);

Ah! If all the countless
Ails of this world were
So dear…and the many
Abrasions so warmly salved
As by Your gracing,

Then would the naysayer

The Lure Of Demon Eyes
At your peril look
me deep into my eyes
meet my ageless,

be dragged to hell and back!
The abrasions on your knees
will become deep grooves... so raw

You'll skid & roll

Here, My Dear

bearing false witness, following our demise. 
There are scattered whispers of a residential cloud

No myth could be written guiltier.
