The library my haven
My home

They supplied me with adventures
Secret journeys
Fun...

Your Move Lord

Is there a God?
A benevolent entity.
An eternal presence presiding over me.
A creator, watching and observing.

Village in the Valley
Village in the Valley left behind, and then it's a fine find
Mountain in the making...in the dark alleys of my mind

You're a flashlight
In the night

Till the end
Bite the bullet
You're the village...

Manservants and pages bustled about
Serving Suitors who just curse and carouse.
Few mix wine with water. I heard one shout,
"Clean down the tables with wet sponges! Rouse
Yourselves! And when...

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 29
Somehow, 
Forward, and headlong
I knew it was day again

There was a shift in the dark mutterings of the Devil,
Who now refused to sleep as I refused to sing,
Almost an anticipation in his voice,
As if he...

Below the Horizon - Shallow Shame
Agony be to society's demise
Labels are for fools, not for the wise

"Go on forth young graduates,

All orderly pre-arranged

But four young girls...

when betrayal comes
like a silver bullet words and deeds
sharp piercing to burrow 
bleed out Life’s dreams 
rust crumbles to dust

Virulent apathy spreads 
Betrayal’s destruction
