Constant urges.
Wrinkles in skin,
And in sheets.
Would I? Dare.
One step closer.
Static, constantly.
Quiet is loud.
I just want to help.
Going backwards.
The future constantly changes.
It swirls around in a mist of uncertainty.
Rescinding - my thoughts,
Burrowing into the soil of my mind....Read More

Animal Instict
Through the glass, your body stills.
What life was there - isn't.


You can't see me, but I can see you.

The pain in my temples kills.
Dead eyes,

Wake up, wake up.

I think I'm going deaf.
Waves wash over skin,
Turning it grey and speckled.

Winter heaves and a blizzard forms
clogging the roads with flakes of snow.
Temperatures fall below norms
whilst wintry winds wantonly blow.

Tow-trucks struggle with cars in tow
Nor’Easters are serious storms.
But kids just hope their buss don't show
for some schools stay closed for snowstorms.

Where The Woods Open
There's a path I always take
down to the river where the woods
are dressed down open
The light of the sky
doesn't shine in your eyes
but leads the way to redemption
I like to stand there for a moment
on the shortcut created by troubled...Read More

Free Verse Fever

 The aria of the sunburst slivers of the sky,
entwined with the cadence of your ivory feet,
winding on the pearl-rolled silver sea shore,
carves the rhythm of your footprint sculpture,
only for an enthralling while,
until scraped by the surge of the tide...Read More

Blissful Plunge

Life cascades
Stream of time free
Journey trail destined
Unwrap petals of heart
Love flies on butterfly wings 
Sunburst sky colors dawn of dream
Sluggish flows river of contained joy
So, take the blissful plunge in sea of soul.

I haven’t the heart just now to flay 
your skin, consume your flesh; you are 
too beautiful to eat. The rose-pink dawn
of your skin conceals your molten
gold sweet flesh. Your depths the pith 
of sacred trees.

Your shape has taken possession...Read More

Burst of brandished flaming arrow,
Thump of bunnies against my chest,
Cupid’s straight pointer did narrow,
Continue my family crest.

Squawking souls of birds in my nest,
Potent from moonstruck bolero,
Crescendo of lust’s citrus zest —
Cock-a-hoop’s sunstruck sombrero.

You have a unique gift...a magical aura
that makes me feel alive
whenever I'm close to you.
The first time I saw you
I was instantly attracted
to your angelic face,
it was like an indescribable force
drew me to your smile.
Your captivating sent, entrapped my heart

Configuring The Heart

On the splendorous crown of my heart
shimmering in the cerulean night
you gleamed with the sequins of moon.
I tried to feel your sapphire touch,
but you glided away out of my sight,
across my sky I had carved for you.

In the verdant vale...Read More

I pace myself on this dry winter day
alongside my four legged running buddy.
Been cooped up and restless within four walls 
watching the showers fiercely blown by the wind.
It’s been four long days now and the storm has passed.

I walk along the rocky bluff
with the warm rising of the sun.
The mist builds and falls
above the vast expanse of the ocean, 
surrounding the little island, 
blanketing the shoreline with soft white mounds.

And in the next moment it...Read More

He sits hunched over like an old man, 
Hood pulled over half his face,
On the cold pavement by the door 
Of the busy local grocery store.

A young man living in his demonic world, 
Listening to the voices in his head....Read More

It was obvious, his muse fell
His mind was a muddled mess
Killed or wounded, he couldn't tell
The emptiness caused him much stress

In the interim, he searches
For a topic that seems just right
An Epiphany that lurches
To light his dark poetic night!

We are all for the Fall
in the seasons of His hands
where He pulls in the strings 
of all His puppets 
calling in cold legions 
in a bitter Winter bleeding
before Spring arrives again
bathed in Light
and a new Summer stands
