Dark Diminuendo Dribbles - Day 25
lusty leaves wave
rusty rhythm plays
airy accordion pukes
callous concerto's tune
mystic music melt
smothering saucy crest

dark diminuendo dribbles
hoisting hankering wrinkles
seeped'n sassy treble

like tactic tiers
severed syllables smeared
on papyrus's peers

same spell squashes
emotion love lodges.

God Wants To Bring Me Through
GOD WANTS TO BRING ME THROUGH

When I think of my past, I become so downcast
O’er my failures and my sins,
Then I think of the day when Christ took them away
And He gave me peace within.
I can mourn with disgrace o’er...Read More

Anxiety
True terror taps
on my bedroom window.
I know that I have
no choice
but for a while I
remain
under the covers,
the air becoming
more and more stale
as my breathes become
deeper. And quicker.
The tapping is music and
rhythmic and present and
all in time with the frantic
beating of...Read More

Unfinished
Unfinished


I’ve been catching sunbeams in a little glass jar.
I’ve got nothing to lose now, apart from my self-control.
I want to set free the world and release my soul afar.
I’ve lost control of growing old.

What nights began at dawn
For the day is strained to
end with the setting of the

Lonely nights have women
To be less than perfect angels

Days eager end leaves her cold
Must these strangers have
Need for her company
Must strangers make mention

Fully unexseptional loving the wrong people
Her preparations to be his
was at the exspence of others
each morning started from
the night before
she commanded his attention
and demanded his loyality
while she sought favor from
others redefining words like
contrite and non chalet
Saving her need for others
While she gathered gossip
for conversation
there bouts...Read More

nostalgia hovers in the night
candle flickers o so bright

bruised hearts craving serenity
for just an instance of infinity

bluesy melodies fill the room
staving off impending doom

a prayer in worship to divinity
in exchange promises eternity

No Mark
No Mark
by Michael R. Burch

A wave implodes, 
impaled upon
impassive rocks...

this evening
the thunder of the sea
is a wild music filling my ear...

you are leaving
and the ungrieving
winds demur...

telling me
that nothing returns
as it was before...

here where you have left no mark
upon this dark
Heraclitean...Read More

Premium Member The Healer
Chiron was the son of Philyra and Titan,
He was created half-human,
While his back-half was equine,
Best-loved of the centaurian line,
Abandoned by his mother in all haste,
His form regarded by her with distaste,
But although his future had seemed dim,
The god Apollo adopted...Read More

Do You Hear What I Hear
Birthdate?  My family tells me
it was 1900 or so.
I don’t remember being born;
I know when I started to grow.

My first real friend was named Reggie
We first met when I was just six.
It was Christmas Eve, we read from
the Bible...Read More

Practicing for Heaven
Most of the music I’ve written will never see the light of day
I guess it wasn’t meant to be heard here
But that’s okay because still I persevere
Driven by a sense that it’s not for nothing

That there’s an eternity coming…

in the time it takes to blink
sometimes I stop to think
what powers lie beneath
a sword outside its sheath
its weight in gold of silence
dangles in the balance
vague stillness turns to ice
within fool’s paradise
its silence unfurls a cloak
consoles heartbroken folk
depths unforeseen
sometimes serene

Musical Shed
By day the quarrymen

The music band understand
6 long month's they must wait
till their next recording session

They won't play the ashes all summer
In the winter garden 
With the shed at the bottom
Until the snow subsidies again

So pack away the grand piano

BLOOD BATH
Last night
I poured some memories into a glass 
They didn’t fill it, not at all
The bottle was almost empty 
When I started pouring
Someone else’s history
I sipped, gulped, finished it
I always drink too quickly
When I like the taste
Such a stupid thing...Read More

Music is a form of liquid art that, when you close your eyes,
will paint a picture in your mind with a paint that never dries.

And being that it’s liquid…music has one solitary goal
