I want to be relieved
I have already grieved

You swayed me next to you, being at ease
Show me Your prosperous peace
I have already grieved
I long to be relieved

However, our love –
Long story short…
I keep on thinking of

Icarus, Resurrected
Finally to Burn: Icarus, Resurrected
by Michael R. Burch

Athena takes me
sometimes by the hand

and we go levitating
through strange Dreamlands

where Apollo sleeps
in his dark forgetting

and Passion seems
like a wise bloodletting

and all I remember
upon awaking

is: to Love sometimes
is like forsaking

one’s Being—to drift
heroically beyond...Read More

Ashes
I'm burning down
The ashes fly
I've lost my love
She said goodbye

Among the ruins
My soul's aflame
Lost and alone 
I cry her name

Long dark night
A living hell
Will this heart heal
Only time will tell...Read More

Premium Member Death Marches on as Life Merely Follows
Death is not cruel.
Its hands, untouched by prejudice,
Welcome each and all at the behest of Time.
For Time, Death's Companion, 
Compels us to accept Death's embrace,
And daily reminds us of its eventuality.
We may shout, cry, rebel, or simply turn away,
Believing that...Read More

Trapped
I am trapped
A glass cage, with black flowers
I scream and claw at invisible walls
You see me, a predator's glare
Amusement, sparks in your dark eyes
A lazy smirk, and you walk away
The glass cage collapses
Leaving me trapped, trapped, trapped

I am trapped
Bewildered, I...Read More

Burning with passion my loins are aflame
My eyes are quite round, really going insane
Becoming quite unsteady
My mind is like spaghetti
Her stuff makes me quiver, pulls this old guy's chain

Life is a dance
As we glide through time
With only one partner
Or many in line

It may be a waltz
The mood is subdued
Beauty of movement
Two hearts are in tune

It could be the tango
Latin rhythms reign
Both you and your partner 
Your passions aflame

Active in my duty.

love can wait
love can wait


you stood there
lips aflame
eyes avenging
cursing him in front of strangers,
how reason leaves so easily
when love becomes stingy.
if I had reached out to touch you
over your anger
over your broken heart
had I wrapped you in my arms
a total stranger

Love In Flames
She loved the skylark
And she loved the grub
She didn't love me
Therein lie the rub

I penned her sonnet
On scented paper
She set it aflame -
Vanished in vapor

October Suns

October suns are Scorpio suns
still fueled by Libra’s heat.
Orange pumpkin light in tons
won’t step on Sagittarian feet.

October suns are Saturday’s fun
red morn, yellow noon, gold eve.
Football cheers and hurdles won
silhouettes of things achieved.

October suns are brilliant ones
