Anguish
Arriving in the middle of the night,
anguish faced me head on,
it woke me up with a start,
a feeling of acute distress

my body landed into the watery brine,
sinking into a...Read More

I control my thoughts
A grueling midday hush
The silent truth, revealed
Acute, unwelcome touch
I resent the way it feels

At war inside my mind
A self destructive fight
 I stay 10 steps behind 
Great howl with little bite

Flawed from outside in
Plagued by potent shame
Relief defined by sin

Sleeping is for others
My feelings so hard and brittle
Keep me awake wondering what I have done wrong
Was it me even or was it you?
Your lively run from stagnancy always amazed me.

Why did you forsake me?
What did I do?
Can we start...Read More

ethereal coupling 
waiting finally over
coming together as one soul
surrounded by ancestral bliss
unsurmountable moon magic

summoned by the gods
of love and lust 
acute wanting finally satisfied
no longer longing for moments like this
this memory lasting forever 
in both of their souls

Sweet blooms in golden hour's wake,
As a diploma is given with handshake.
To blue-gold skies over glassy lake,
Scarlet redbird, the clouds overtake!

And just no telling what all will be!
Like midnight stars in afar enormity,

Consumed in flash madness

The sound of tears last night

True tears that last the night 
dry in the duty of a dirty glass 
lined with lipstick to remind me 

Alone and acute to the air above 
advising and accusing the actions 
into a bell shaped delirium for you

The sky has became heavy with a lot of pain
