Premium Member She
she always knew
her shadow of grey  
would never inspire 
moments 
of amber gold and olive

her residence had been a tapestry
of silent tolerance 
questioned by fear 
of who she really was 

she shuffled
from place to...

These ribbons I tie as you leave
Blue – 
for your arm wrapped around
my clavicle. I thought
I would loose my breath.

Red – 
for the cusp of our hip bones
struggling to pull the drunken color
from our orange cheeks.
and our sweat, our sweat, our...

How can one man find
More faith in a crevasse of Siula Grande,
Than most will ever know,
Sitting beneath a pulpit on Sunday?

Dulling the truth to grow the census,
Merchants and cowards comfort the carnal ear.
Marketing Christ’s love...

Where shall I rest my head,
Upon a lofty mountaintop with snow
In a green valley far, far below
Or buried deep within the evergreen pines
Nestled in with sleeping cones
Racing about with morbid...

Rafters shake in irritation,
as if to say what is the use?

A tongue will flame, and bring a tear,
sear self-worth and claim the right
How does their own ears not hear..
abuse that blows a wind of fear

The disaster aftermath of the great collapse

To live for the story we tell; our legacy...

Ode to the time we Spent
Ode to the time we spend, 
My hearts ready to move on,
and nothing makes sense
We boast of being free,
We lack when tied down,
Our influences degrade us,
And I finally found.
The reason no less,
To my way of...

until madness seizes your think tank 
trapping your ceaselessly chirping ideas

refusing to relinquish you; lest you chew up...

Sorrow greets sadness here,
The morning after steers.

Why all this teary feel
That oozes a reveal?

~~~~~~~~~


Deep impact stays huge loss
As a lost rhyme feeds toss.

Why all this sudden sighs
That surge in blurry eyes?

Each to a set routine

I'm Sorry
Apologies are 
Commonly phrased 
Cliche afterthoughts 
Of inadequate responses
And inferior substitutes 
For thinking ere speaking, 
Which right no wrongs, 
Created by those 
Desiring to feel better, 
To feel released 
From the guilt of things 
They...

Umbrellas become afterthoughts
once the rain has cleared away,
And are left behind like discarded lovers
whose partners have moved on for a brighter day.

Held close and tight when the need was there;
opening up to let you in;

the square root of love is love
there is no other love
one is water on the mind of my soul
it is never truly magic until created through the work required

now here we are....living together but homeless within the dwelling
the internal guessing games...
