Screaming

Image

Beyond the startling sadness lives a lonely place
your eyes surprise the darkness
that never sees my face

Behind the broken mirror looms a somber spirit
left with nothing to embrace
its shadow betrays the brightness

Before the dreary daylight detects a trace 
wasting words for no one
i shall leave with fallen grace

Beneath the blackened veil cries an endless tear
too fragile for the human race
where a screaming secret whispers

beyond the startling sadness lives a lonely place…

exit ramp

 

 

Image

empty space connects to nothing

cannot be seen, heard, touched

endless everlasting non-evasive existence

so invisible that unworthy people can float around in it

aimlessly

and always alone

wanting to believe

is easy

not wanting to believe

is not

it is as easy for him to let go 

as it is to hold on

how dare i be heart broken

when i always knew

his heart never breaks

“Signals”

 Image
a tiny, belittled bed
my only refuge
tattered sheets 
my sheer protection

wee-hour clarity
overwhelmingly wide awake
mosquitoes buzzing like blaring sirens
become warning signals…

i dare not sleep
an echo from afar
i pray the Lord
my soul to keep

the softness of angels barely there
begging me not to weep
comforted the coming reality
while i counted sheep

the edge of life literally dangling
i pleaded for the courage to leap
climbing to heaven
no matter how steep

air coming in and out of his nostrils
sneaking up the stairs
growing more fearsome
like thunder from an approaching storm

“Breathing”, please pass by my door
it is shut terrifyingly tight
so dreams of innocence 
shower me with hope in morning’s light

teddy bear clenched 
sweet and pure
merely a child
sleeping in the night

my door opens
his breath upon me 
merely a chlld
weeping in the night

j.k.

Higglety – Pigglety

 

 

 

 

 

ImageSprinkled with shadowy theoretical thoughts

somewhere between abstract and figurative,
I have designed luminated bodies;
keeping vigil on orbiting satellites.
A burning star flaunts flame-coloured beams,
planetesimal among the atmospheric landscape.
Happy perky people seem terrene
in a jungle partially deranged.
Slumped in a sagging lawn chair,
swallowing from grandiose tupperware,
peering with Palladian eyes; a maladjusted moon.
Is the far side just like the near side?
Intrigued; my mind wandering in lithium,
eau-de-nil hot breeze grasshoppers buzz
in a refraction of sound,
asinine among sky-high pensive ponderosa pines.
The dark side facing the wrong way; obscured,
my disorder closes out everything extraneous.
A mosaic arranged in higgledy-piggledy moods,
nightingales sing sweet in the golden mean….

eternal journey…journey eternal

Image

along the feel of touch

beneath the starving probes

inhaling your warmth

exhaling my willingness

may i paint you every star

play you heaven across my piano keys

etch you the purest words in pen and ink

may i…

somewhere there flutters an eternal journey

waiting for the butterfly

spinning, sucking, seducing

caught in the teasing of time

fondled in a field of dreams

desires tiptoe into a world

where nothing is as it seems

lay me down

atop the wildflowers

where longing melts

and we mesh together

i have envisioned you

pulsating against my fantasies

round and round the sphere of eternity

i encircle you…

i encircle you…

round and round the sphere of eternity

pulsating against my fantasies

i have envisioned you

and we mesh together

where longing melts

atop the wildflowers

lay me down

where nothing is as it seems

desires tiptoe into a world

caught in the teasing of time

spinning, sucking, seducing

waiting for the butterfly

somewhere there flutters an eternal journey

may i

etch you the purest words in pen and ink

play you heaven across my piano keys

may i paint you every star

exhaling my willingness

inhaling your warmth

beneath the starving probes

along the feel of touch

the heart

Image

tree branches were swaying

screaming her cries in the wind

never listening to what she was saying

in a world where everyone had sinned

she lost her way on the stairs

that the angels had laden with prayers

inside that horrid hateful day

where all color had turned to gray

perhaps the heart fell through the hole

gouging her miserable mattress

crushed on the floor

in that room which had no door

with no one she could trust

battered with blood and deceit

her long painful walk

tattered the shoes on her feet

trapped inside the mirrors

imprisoned by faces in masks

pretending to smile back

in the frigid frightening cold

where she was left alone

to grow old

living in lies trampling her tears

far, far beyond her years
