Maybe it’s when they are born that their heart shows signs of fault.
That instead of pumping red, they pump blue into the body of steel.
Maybe when they take their first breathes, some specs of evil enter their little lungs,

I did it out of pity.
I did it out of love.
I did it not to break the heart of a tender, wounded dove. 

But gods without compassion
ordained: "Frail things must break!"
Now what can I do for her...Read More

Premium Member Walk I, Naked Under Pallid New Moons
“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast,
knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever
just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself.
Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full...Read More

Heart raptures are often revisited,
When poring over the things He said;
And as a rousing drama replays again,
All evergreen is love's aged domain!

Words of prophets in the mind recur;
The divine tales of each messenger-
How Moses by God obtained the law,
Then merciful...Read More

It Doesn't Matter
There's that sound again
A sound of dying 
And the company of a friend

In this twilight shine
Black ash and a silver cloud
This sliver of hope makes a dumb man proud

It doesn't matter
If to the left or right this wind blows

Come Out
Little bits of bitterness
is trying to hold on;
This time 
Time is teaching ,
the Art of withdrawn.

In panic; the pain
The sunshine to the droplets of rain
They say it will come,
Eventually through Time .
The black thundering nights have blue sky
Hidden behind.

Brevity perhaps was his destiny
Eternity his true fate of time
Leaving so many wounded in disbelief
Only one child were to carry on his legacy
Veiled to walk down the isle alone
Endlessly searching for her father
David my only brother, taken too soon

The Golden Egg
The world is an oven

With each scorching,
its temperature grows

Unable to stop,
hands fall off the clock

Left roasting
