New Poems

Before now
Times gone, forgotten
Left in the past
Harsh winds of life
Have broken my mast.

Swept no direction
Lost in my pain
Thoughts of happiness
Now a faded old stain. 

Corners of loneliness 
Fraught every day
Words of contentment 
Stand in my way.

Shadows of grief
Swallow my soul

Confessions of a Shadow
I am an earthly phenomenon
as common as light itself.
And whereas all other things
exist as sone kind of substance,
as a shadow, I am unique in that
I exist with none of my own;
rather I am dependent on two
essentials – light and the...Read More

It was a beautiful day for a picnic in the park,
We all thought we would stay there until dark.

Just enjoying the peace of a late summer bliss,
Like a departing lover engages you with a kiss!

We lunched on good food, and...Read More

Black Hole Sun
My plasma ring has so much class
My hot swirling edge is a gas
But the stuff I suck in
Goes to my rear end
And becomes all a singular mass

I'm damaged and broken,
unable to fight.
My days are now spent,
in the absence of light.

My hearts black and blue,
from what I can't control.
A big empty space if you will,
a large black hole.

A place with no laughter,
a place with no touch.

He told her he was broken
But she saw him differently
A priceless clock
That was slightly off 
A little complicated
Just needed timing, winding, 
Some small adjustment
She thought she could 
Do the necessary repairs, 
It should’ve been a cinch
It would’ve been worth it
But he turned out to...Read More

If you were wondering about me,
I'm doing as fine as fine can be
I'm just falling into the black hole in space
I'm just embracing what's left of vast grace

I'm doing swell and as free as free...Read More

Thoughts About The Future

Age Causes the future to seem close at hand.
And the older we become,
the shorter the distance seems.

We think of our future as always being far off,
but in reality it is only tomorrow.

Through the Black Hole
I used to love how it all felt,
Corrupting every Satelite
Until they all fell.
Now I hear the whispers through the night.

They're telling me to let go,
Of humanity still left in me,
So now I only see my ghost,
Still missing the remedy.

How lovely...Read More

Bounce up, sun,
Golden hour's begun;

I wax poetic as lifeblood imperceptibly wanes
Aging baby boomer
no longer fit as a fiddle
accumulating extra adipose tissue
around the middle
ain't no impossible mission
whence thumbs I twiddle
to shed unwanted 
weight methinks exorcise to unriddle.

Caution to the wind, opens doors, unseen by careful eyes.  The greatest minds achieve by leaps of faith; 
knowing progress hides in the unseen void.

Doing the black-hole dive can save a stagnating 
marble in space; on the other side...Read More

Do you love to stand upright for the truth?
Or do you love it more,
bending to lies
At an acute angle forty five

Love Me Like You Mean It
The night was stormy
The rain lashing against my windows
And the thunder,
Deafening my senses!

Lost and agonising,
Tossed and turned in my bed
Seeking to find
The meaning of life
The material realm
Laden with illusory tricks
Has had me losing my grip on it!

I closed my eyes
