I dig in the dark for you, go where you are. Why do you hide in the shadows, as if that is where you belong; where you are safe? Don’t believe the lies. The dark promises escape, Invisibility, Freedom to roam, No one cares, No one claims to care.It doesn’t hurt,When the darkness clouds the … Continue reading Excavation
I am a charlatan, among charlatans, In a crowd of clowns, Dancing and smiling, Wearing faces that don’t belong to us, Waiting for our chance in the spotlight, Watching from the sidelines, Believing, knowing,When the next person drops the mike,One of us will pick it up.
Suffering is the currency of life, Not wealth, Not good fortune, Not even love. Piles of money, Won’t stave off The task master of pain, Perfect plan, perfectly executed,Is like water through a sieve,Washed away,Unretained,Nothing.Love, yes love,The sweet communion,That gives us value,Binds us together,With cords of anguishThere is nothing,To make anything,Of purpose out of life,Except … Continue reading Spend it Well
In the peace of the morning,In the peace of the woods,Earliest birds start the chorus,The gentle, jingle of crickets,The back drop until the sun,says they are done.Wind through trees, through leaves,The soothing, cleansing air,That whispers breath, life, voice, prayer.If I could hide in you morning,I would never leave,Never allow the cacophony of day,To lead me … Continue reading Morning Song
A spade is a spade, So call it that, Don’t call it Queen of Hearts, Or King of hearts, Or any kind of hearts. It’s not just the cards dealt, But the cards you pick up, Even so, it’s all just a game, So play.
Fragile on the edge, A feather touch, To push me, Don’t do it, Don’t believe it Don’t try and see. Where I’ll go, Where I’m going,Losing grip now,Slipping, in the air,No where to land,Pull me back,Catch my line,Won’t you?So close to nothing,So little between,One,More,Thing,And I’m,There.
Sometimes all the pieces, Escape me, Like the ends of kite strings, Slipping through fingers. Truths that want to be free, Want to leave me, Without the cloud of cover, Nothing to hide within.Grasping after,The drifting vapor of illusion,Of frozen thoughts, Melting in the warmth of weary time.Don’t expose me,To this fluid chaos,I will plunge … Continue reading Stand Still. Be Quiet. – A Poem
My head feels lost, Untethered, My body weak, Unstable, I want to grab normal, But it slips through my fingers, And I know, I’m not there, I’m in that other place, Out of the flow,Not in sync with the rest,Bobbing along,In a stream of pain,Sorrow,Brokenness,That can’t be glued back togetherWith words,Or thoughts,Or even prayers,Because the … Continue reading Out of my Mind With Grief
Every day we start our way and face, the grind, grind, grind, grind, ground up joy, can’t lie, can’t say, it’s okay, doesn’t matter anyway, We’ll make it work, put in the time,doesn’t even have to rhyme.Look away, pages say, life gone by,bye, bye, bye, bye,bought the lie, felt the pain, put our faces to … Continue reading Do It Again
Strive to stand out in a crowd, Or stand. Strive to be heard above the rest, Or speak. Strive to influence across the globe, Or influence. Strive to make a good life, Or live.
