Dear Davey, my darling, my bright pirate boy
Your lips are the prize in the night of my joy
Your eyes can erase me or teach me the cure
Of how you can face me by all you endure

Your sigh is the sign...Read More

Kindred II
Kindred (II)
by Michael R. Burch

Rise, pale disastrous moon! 
What is love, but a heightened effect
of time, light and distance? 

Did you burn once, 
before you became
so remote, so detached, 

so coldly, inhumanly lustrous, 
before you were able to assume
the very...Read More

I think of you now, 
Why I do not know.

How? I cannot answer.

I know now I miss you.

Another day without you.
Another day to be alive.
Within sorrow's empty heart.
How do I survive.

Loneliness surrounds me.
My other half is gone.
Half of this whole is missing.
from this souls loving song.

No notes I sing this morning.
To greet this new day.
No smiles I...Read More

The hospital is a cold and sterile place. 
It is not meant to be…

It is meant to be a building…

have no chance at all.

Today is the first day, 
The rest will all just follow,

The Trail of a Raindrop

Sudden rain brought me
under your umbrella
for the first time.
For the first time
you were so close to me
with your fragrance.
The umbrella was
not big enough
to cover both of us.
A raindrop was trickling 
down your forehead.
I was following it's trail
without listening to you.

Poetry saved my soul
It was accidentally on purpose
I fell into it, and stayed seated

It was a graduate level course
He assured me I would flunk
And I did.

This course was the only course

Ever wondered how it happens?
How the last person stays, 
How they make sure, everyone else gets out?

Ever wonder why?
Is that important?

even more importantly what...Read More

Yesterday the wind whispered my name
while the blazing locks
of her rampant mane
lay heavy on mine.
And yesterday
I saw the way
the wind caressed tall pines
in forests laced by glinting streams
and thick with tangled vines.
And though she reached

My voice is quiet. 
I have little to say. 
I am listening instead…

I can hear birds. 
Not a couple, but many.
They are all around. 
They are happy.
They are busy.

The wind…
rustling through, the trees.
I can feel, 
the heartbeat…
