New Poems

Snakelike writhing twisting clenching soul pain.
Shooting needles crystal shards sharp and fine
Blame shame there is no gain along this vein
Mundane challenge gives no freedom to chime.
Music slowing, life blind with mist and fogs
brain seize, monochrome visions seep inside.
Lone in self,...Read More

suddenly a spark

from nowhere an idea

synapses ignite.

Karma incarnate

Symbolize synapses
refrain recreate
Blades of grass
Cannabolize compliance
Unions unite
Tongues of trauma 
Ignited ironies
Cycle compromises 
Earth and Sky
Nuisance nefarious 
Babel blessings
Kingdoms of self
Tetrahedron tongues
Idiom intrigue 
Scythe of time
Wakes within
Primal pentagons 
Minutes of minuscules
Frequent furtherings
Amock amiables
Omens of obsession 
Useless understoods
Dogmatic dharma
Wanting of whispers

Kissing lips
Two bodies glue together as one,
Cold shivers vibrated through my spine,
As our lips were locked in position,
Like two opposite poles of a magnet with strong attraction,
My heart beats faster than a racing car,
Light transformed by whole body to synapses of...Read More

Thoughts awaken thoughts 
Gunfire in synapses 
Sparks speaking to sparks 
Unseen ,  unheard
A distant herd
Always too far from comprehension

the rabbit and the hatter
not being
able to tell
if dusk's veil

or are my

from dreams
of happy
making me
not able to

the sanity
that wasn't

The brave wear black with blue
sometimes I wish to cut myself open

Cold hands of the doctor in gloves and mask
lay her on the hard surgical metal table.
A numb sensation travels down arm to wrist.
Sedation spreads to an EGREGIOUS sin. 
Breathing deep through monitored heart rate
eyelids weigh down in heavy haze.

Calling Us Inward
The logic of life…
  illogically pure

In search of itself,
  last problem to cure

Synapses relapse,
  science reclaims

The form with the formula,
  washed down the drain

Structural weakness,
  obsolescence defined

The clocks after midnight,
  forever to chime

With finality’s...Read More

It reminds of disentangling neurons haphazardly fired at random

An old friend of mine
Keeps paying me visits
in the early hours of the morning when the dogs bark

It's 5am
And she's here now
Swirling her pale finger through my hair,
trampling mud through my trembling synapses

She traces over my scars, smiling
She reels the...Read More

He is my Refuge
He asked me, “So what are you into now?”

Cool, they describe you
Yet your energy is vigorous, enduring
Short, compact waves of intense photon packages
Dancing on the retina in steady, fluid rhythm

As a pleasing, enigmatic dialect of compelling emotion
Tiny molecules of air...Read More
