Premium Member The Mirrors Of Life
In the mirrors of life, I see
Reflections shining back at me;
I am like a nomad drifting,
The sands of time they keep shifting,
Always moving on,
Fading, fading, gone.

I am losing to the past
I realise that nothing lasts
Forever.
I am choosing to wear masks,
Disguise...Read More

Falling
The blueish gray haze swirled thru out the mind
dizzying confusion, lapse of reason, lost and blind
body paralyzed, frozen like McKinley's heights  
heart beats heavy soul stricken with benights

trails of tears red with pain follow decisions
choices made causing irreparable divisions

Sands of Time

spotted gaurdians pace as the sculpted body transforms
once dry granuals of earth morphed into soft mirages of beauty
a trick perhaps to the untrained eye look deeper still ..magic

Premium Member What happened to Joe
He sits upon the edge of tomorrow,
lost in his little world full of sorrow.
Sands of time have no patience for his pain,
bemused and confused he can't feel the rain.

You ask, but his excuses feel so lame,
so it's no surprise he's...Read More

Premium Member The Days Of Wine And Roses


The days of wine and roses are 
memories time emptied of hope.
And shards of broken promises
gather to lacerate your heart.

Tears flow to an inner plateau
of conscience and self-awareness.
And you entertain multitudes
of bewildering emotions.

Taking a moment, you reflect
upon the innocence of...Read More

Indentions
Isn't it funny how indentions work, 

the slight indentation of the skin, 

a simple red mark fading away after a few still, tranquil moments. 

But how bittersweetly the indention on bone leaves a everlasting impact upon the structure. Will I one day dig deep...Read More

Premium Member if tomorrow's promise was broken
beneath the effulgence
of obscured moonlight
emanate shadows stalk
as i draw close
within the weakened sighs
of misted breaths
on bended knee
as pleas abate
within the confines
of dark nights

cockcrow may come
without rise
of my eyes
sanguine skies
blushed against
pale skin
as folded hands rest

fear not
for i will join those
bereft of...Read More

Slipping Sands Of Time -COLLABORATION

From the green canopy of the sprawling park
dawn’s sun streamed through aperture of foliage.
Birds’ early twitter trickled through my window,
time to be up, to be with the ambiance of nature.

I used to go out to the park perennially pepped up...Read More

Let the flags all stop their waving,
Let the traffic lights turn red.

That my best friend was dead.

Stop the sands of time.

Resonating Soul SOS

Multi-channel stream meanders in the carved valley,
concert of murmur cascades melody on sculpted rock.
I place my ears on the flow of the whistling air,

Scum
Across sands of time,
Blood after blood; ages drink,
Silently … life treads –
Across realms of sunk flesh,
To end in earth, wind, and fire.

Morals of Eras, 
Froth forth from thrones of rapture,
Blind rage becomes it –
Sweet hypocrisy, chosen!
Prostrate, heaven-bound, hell-bent.

Sword scum, cosmic...Read More

Desire Of Famished Life

Wandering on winding path in wasteland
faint footprints disappear in sands of time.
Forgot from where this journey had begun,
where it will end for the forlorn wayfarer.

Under the scorching blaze of the summer sun
desiccated life languished forsaken parched.
Searching a wayside tree, branches...Read More

I wake 
each morning
with a craving
born of fear
as I watch
youth wither
and vanish
sands of time

So much
remains unsaid
and I ache
to let it free 
knowing time
will wait
for no one

Ashes

Ashes, warm and crumbling
Of my memories and doings,
A hot gust of wind
Will soon blow them away
To be lost forever
Beneath the Sands of Time.
O August Fire!

My mind is blank,
My voice, it is choked, 
Burn away my senses 
And my...Read More

Many Many Long Years Ago


Walking down the memory lane
frozen feelings are warm again
on sands of time, waves ebb and flow     
many, many long years ago.

yet we pretended, to look strong.
