Premium Member John Lennon
On the day 
that John Lennon died, 
people were just going

Sand falls
Through the glass
Love falls
Within the past
Memories dance
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Falling Down Stairs

Stairs broken
Wheels unspoken
I fell
Grasping for air

To Dreamland on Sunset's Lullaby

Gracefully the young crescent moon
ascends the sky like a cosmic tune;
replacing the drowsy pale yellow sun
sinking on a golden glowing horizon.

Your mind's in knots,
as stress plagues thoughts.
On hope you cling,
to bloom like Spring.

Don't be so scared,

Callused fingers press vibrating strings,
drawing passion from a violin.
And with burnished wood snug to his cheek,
the violinist plays from his heart.
