Poems can be jubilant spring
Melodies caught, lyrics to sing
Hope's revival, heartbreak's surcease
The joy of ink-stained paper's crease
Reposing grace on summer swings

The repressed flame and cold release

Consequences
Struck void the will of intellect,
against such pondering, 
the injured spirit to protect. 
No tangled reminisce provides, 
Surcease to turnings 
of such tortured mind. 
Nor time-fogged recall 
that guide requires - 
So indelibly scored, Regret's cold ire.

Athwart Without Surcease — Edzel

Erelong the sphere was contrived,
intrinsically safe with His arms.
Born— soon derived,
and molded from His heart so warm.

Fain to live,
hight to be a no man in an island.
Sith ere He do forgive,
our sins be reprimand.

Teened with so...Read More

The Answer to Complaint Part 5

While others longed in vain, while some the winter blasts destroyed;
Its trees are legion; some decay, While others flush with bloom,
And thousands still their birth await, Hid in the garden’s...Read More

The Resolution
The first of every January starts another unspoiled year
Just when I was feeling merry … righteous conscience interferes

Lulled by scent of pine and holly, culpable and self-contrite

Why, does existing have to be

Threads of my life are still unsaid.
Silently I wipe away tears

throwing off spider webs of thread.

Death Becomes Me
You’re within  me
Talking, stalking
In the guise of a false memory

Arbiter of what is and is not
A cloaked and shadowed form
Whom I had hoped to forget

Feebly I had prayed that I could live in peace
But your ghostly spectre is haunting

Dear God, WHY?

To someone who can smile and verify
