Black Birds 
In the dead of night
Stealthy midnight chatter
outside my window pane
No singing to my ears 
Just constant rain
Thunder crackling
The children have left
Just the plots 
And leaves scurrying
 the wind swirling
Upwards almost 
Telling me look up
Refusing I tell myself
It can't be 
just hallucinations
The oval mirror where 
She would stand naked
Brushing her long Blond 
Waist length hair
Dripping wet her supple 
Body yearning calling me
I wouldn't come 
wouldn't move
just a Mirage a dream 
Nightmarish I'd say
I remember her though
Singing softly to me
The children all five 
All girls all gone 
She lays in state on a
Lily and rose Laden 
mattress sunken in
Scented silk now
Moldy and musty
Cobweb silkscreens
Adorne her
I still try to talk 
She doesn't answer
I'm alone 
Wasting away 
In this room 
So much gloom 
Your not here
To share in 
My uneventful doom
Lurking shadows
Closets and halls
Faceless lovers
Pictures hang 
on walls
Your not here
Just your Soulless body
You left me behind 
Alone so long ago
Glock in hand 
And mind in 
Transient state 
Waiting staring 
At 12 dead roses
Near the grey 
Corner stone
All alone...

This brings to mind, poetry written hundreds of years ago when the world was more pure but in some ways more dangerous than even dark, almost haunting with such soul. I am quite picky about what poetry I find to be "good".. This is Good.

The tone of you being all alone in this poem is sobering. Wonderfuliy written.

The imgery was breathtakingly beautiful, while the sadness was gripping. Definitely held my attention, such a well written piece.

Hi TC, it;s been a long time since I held a Glock, wouldn't like to hold one now if I were left alone. A sad but still great write. God Bless. D.
