I'm suffering from depression
I'm really feeling down
I'm suffering from depression
I need to write this down

They say that I should see a doc 
To tell me that I'm ill
They say that I should see a doc
And get from him a pill

Death Comes To The Love
scattered the atom of heart,

O' rose, you've come
with a cup of hemlock,
I'm on the world dock,

numbness syrup
devours me slowly

A childhood memory warmly reminds

A game of Where's the Thimble,
hidden by a gang of siblings,
or just one strategic sister,
left for me to rightly find
as I wander through our living room,
following bilateral fractal cues,

You're cold,
freezing really.
Now you're getting warmer.
No, not that...Read More

Premium Member as autumn fades

"Ave Maria" playing
in the background
distant chatter fading
my emotions asunder
like the dandelion
in autumn's air
soft wishes
blown about

i always curse
this time of year
it's the crossroad
of life and death
where everything beautiful
rises to glory
in its splendor 
dancing gleefully
before becoming grounded
lost in the echo of wind's...Read More

The Rusting Rain Refrain
Auburn swirls of wind-laden leaves 
coast to the cleat-torn orifices
of soggy, mud-clung grass.
That massed flapping pile time capsule
of summer sunsets is crushed with entering steps
like the rusting rain refrain.

A shorn sheep freezes from dusk until dawn,
following a downward descending path,
tattered...Read More

An Archangel Visit
Enervated, body aching;
five sleepless nights,
a caregiver’s winter;
too lethargic to leave the chair.
Bed was a million miles away;
rest even farther from my weary constitution.

While my patient slept
I pondered what might occur next;
Alzheimer’s is so unpredictable.
As the numbness sets in
hope metamorphosed into...Read More

We move unobstructed through a frozen desert—
desolation which welcomes, indiscriminately, fools like us
with open arms, roaring heat and blinding light.
Unfounded confidence and a thirst for what comes next drives our feet forward
and our heads up.
Ice and snow crunch beneath our...Read More

On the Death of My Sister
The early morning phone call.
Then the vague sifting through emotions. 
Numbness deepens - like the coastal shelf - and soon enough, there'll be grief, regrets...
Platitudes. You're in the other room, the better place.
But, in truth,
you've made the inevitable crossing we...Read More

A Misguided Heart
Numbness washes over me
Then is gone
Pain returns and threatens to crush me
Then anger
Objects fly through the air
Was it my hand that threw them
And then this incredible emptiness
Will I survive
I would rather feel agony
The blood dripping through my fingers
My hand holding...Read More

Summer Vacation
The urge to travel
rises when least expected,
without reason or warning.

Unsettled, is how I describe
my feelings as it develops,
like an autumn storm beginning with clouds.

The day arrives
and I leave the homestead,
disrupting my structured life.

Normal routines give way
to silence and simplicity in...Read More

Beyond the mourning of bereavement
(dashed off upon learning untimely demise 
regarding prosperous family, whose small 
plane crashed. about half dozen years ago, 
they lived ~ three doors down from us.) 

No words can assuage the deep sorrow,
this once upon a time neighbor
(I lived at...Read More

Self Pity
This hall was once filled with light 
Beauty found in every corner and in the spaces in between 
My footsteps echo in the empty darkness
Beauty has turned to ruins
Scorch marks scar the walls
Dead flowers lay scattered among broken pottery

A lightning-fast swing, 
a blinding slap 
and a few seconds later – a dull thunder of the leaving thunderstorm.
A numbness of words;
a dumbness of feelings;
a cold wind from the river; 
a sad and grievous moan of the coal barges, huddling...Read More

Her stare is a scent tied to memory.
Hanging long as a searchlight out to sea.
Here where Times only purpose
Is to punish in fluid translation,
mocking with it's lap of tongue across the beach.
She breathes in Her re-treasured re-collections -She fills Herself...Read More

Rage! Rage! This angst, oozing from yawning deep, 
Render to numbness, silent cornered weep, 
Iniquitous decrees, when lulled to sleep, 
Seduced by dybbuks, only vice to reap, 
At impasse is reason in chaotic sneap, 
Battle! Battle! Wrought courage to muster,...Read More

Love of history
commences a health and pathology journey
toward totalitarian terror
and unitarian awareness,
fragmented numbness of prey
and integral consciousness
of co-empathically benign predators
casing out

Framing one Earth-rhetorical spiraling event
within which herstory
of commodified
and domesticating victims
remains too unlargely untold
to optimize healthy climate trends.

Each spatially boundaried community,

Words they can never be unspoken
Your words find their target and seek the destruction of all you profess to love. 
Protection and numbness can be my only defense.
For I have young eyes watching my every emotion, seeking comfort and reassurance from my presence.
So I build...Read More

Mercy Unveiled
Freeze away the fire 
Between me and you
Take out evil desire
From my heart so true

My heart is torn apart somehow

Your touch and sarcastic humor is hollow from the start
Don't swallow me whole with your shallow...Read More

A Word
A word was spinning around in my head,
Cancer was what the doctor had said.
Numbness, foggy, what shall I do, how can I fight this for my family too.
My first thought, but soon that passed.
Acceptance, non resistance, then it can't last.

As the loneliness took over
The memories became sweeter
As the numbness of the heart became unbearable
The love that was given unconditionally grew
Who would have known

Time healed the wounds
But the pain is unforgettable
The sequence of events occurred
But the honour that was given...Read More

Cascades of child like laughter roll of the scarlet paved street of a Harlem like neighbourhood
Infused with the liquid brown scent of human an assault on the senses
