~The Untold Fatal Attraction Poem~
Mid-morning she sees the sun ahead
Her death flowed in a messaged bottle
Gazing into her brown eyes upon all open sores,
October: I'm eighteen, shortcutting home
through an autumn-burnished churchyard -
copper-lustred leaves, moss-skinned stone -
a jaunty swing of skater skirt and arm,
college folder square-sturdy in my hand.
pain, autumn, mystery,
A child of four suffers recurring dreams,
disturbing parents and siblings with screams.
When she awoke, always sore in one knee;
next to a birthmark, it throbbed painfully.
pain, anger, death, farewell, memory, mother, sick,
Teardrops, bagged eyes, a way of sin

A conniving move against tonight's phantom glow
Voices circle around the insomniac moon

they watch over us, healing...
Love in the Silence of the Soul
pain, death, love, sorrow,
As a young boy
Sitting in a pew
The winter darkness pressing down
Candlelight waves from hidden drafts
Shadows danced on the walls
I heard the words destined to me
pain, beautiful, cry, rain,
*I Will Cry*
If this world really mattered,
Why does it bleed?
I could tell you how much I love you,
But, that will never heal the pain.
When Madness Rides on Moonlight
pain, god, life,
Days pass into the weak, loveless nights. The moon blinks.
The stars swirl beneath Van Gogh’s brush, as he links.
Comet light passes twisting cypresses, a schizophrenic’s...
Thinking Out Loud
pain, angel, beauty, love,
i think out loud
from my fingers to a keyboard
so forgive me if my speak

if it has swirls and curls
A girl named Sue
pain, angst, fantasy, teen love,
POTW 1 Oct 2018
Gossip about her
swept the school yard through
“Hey if you’ve got what it takes
There’s this girl named Sue
For a pack of smokes
depression, emotions, pain,
Behind that garden rail;
Where worms, squirm and roam,
They dig into every worst part of my day.
I feel them crawling, making my hide their home.

Elements around my shore expose more than air

pain, beautiful, romantic, wife,
Feathers floating in the wind
Perform in slow motion,
Each drift into the shadows of yesterday
She is not me -- She is not you!
No thunder without lightning
pain, absence, angst, lost love, love hurts,
Lightning rarely strikes without thunder,
causing havoc in gloomy skies.
Humans can't control their plunder,
seeking shelter until the storm dies.
