My mourning and frustration
is persistent decrepit
just like naked misty sucidal path 
that run through me....

i ran toward the outbuildings
the windmill is still here
fence is decrepit as always
i can smell grandpa Ed in here
people attempt to lure me out with food...

Easy
 I remembered being on a bus with my dad today
Passing an old decrepit man out jogging and I began to giggle
To which my father retorted laugh away 
At least he is competing whereas you are merely commentating
Glued to the bench last out the trench...

Faith
Only tempest and decrepit,
Blackened and lost souls.
Covet and seek,
For something much more.

Never sway, never cede.
The blessed seek nothing more.
The Blessed are those-who with faith.
Who with FAITH fill their soul!

My Fading Lasher
Fortunes spread an open tie.
He is bleeding.
His lungs will die.
His legs will give,
His face will fail.
His eyes,
Decrepit,
Once were real.
He'll lie at rest,
Drunk with a disturbed damnation
Blooming in his mouth.
Approachable,
For I too bloomed there.

Premium Member SURVEYING THE GRAPES
The bat is never satisfied, his eyes
do pierce the longest gloom of Winter’s white.
His dark decrepit cape— a purple vine.
The brood of brows and lids release no light.

The Veil
The Veil

On decrepit pathways hobbling
Life soul and world a wash of grayscale

Dark wings in shadows sing
By design the spirit to impale

An artist’s palette of black and white
Bright hues in daylight pale

Adrift in oceans of ravens night
Accursed walk beyond the veil

Stephen Allen.

THE HAUNTED HOUSE
As thunder boomed and lightning flashed,
The rotting mansion seemed to speak;
The trembling pair, their eyes immense,
Began to shake with each new creak.

Decrepit timbers groaning then,
The pair agog, despite their boasts,
‘We have to stay and see it through.’
They couldn’t leave: they were its ghosts!

Decrepit Landscapes
Dreary decrepit landscapes frost over the hills,
No land to salvage, no time to kill.

Close your eyes into a paradise that will never find you,
Sences leave you blind, As your soul will forever guide you.

Valid dreams no longer vivid, In this world so directed,
Time can no longer pass, but with you, I have existenced....

Untitled
Changes occur
Nothing remains
Those who loved
Now hate
Those who cherished
Now despise
Seasons come
And seasons go
The passage of time
Destructs all
Loneliness sets in
No one is left untouched
All will suffer
Eventually
Promises are made
Some actually kept
In a world
As shallow and decrepit
As our own
No one is safe

You hold nothing in my decrepit heart There is nothing there for you I see nothing that’s free I don’t know what you have inside your heart As it has blackened from soot And your hate has come out Our pale lives have darkened beyond all hope Our hearts have been torn apart Now completely loveless

Bloody Death
Bloodthirsty anguish torments my
Lunatic mind, seizing supremacy, paralysing my decrepit living corpse with
Overpowering obsession, manipulating my blackened heart and hurling me into burning
Oblivion, composing the malicious desire to self
Destruct-and i do-savagely i lacerate myself until extinction

Listen to poem:
(Another old, childhood poem.)

Do you remember the old water well,
constructed of wood, stone, shingles,
and clay? It still stands in the dell --
old, decrepit, and gray. Bordered 
by flowers of varying hues. it serves 
as an altar to a lonely recluse.

The old water well where once we did meet
lies crumbling in dust, a hermit's retreat.
