    The Collective Eye

    We trek across an amorphous dream Vague shapes weave into obscurities Drawing me in Extending a hand behind a smiling guise. Spiral front and then back again In a barrel we spin in disarray Forehead sweats Reaching to wipe the tears from another eye. Mind eclipses everything...

    The Void Miles apart,

    10 feet away,I’ve lost the strength or will to say.The trail was once was so full and bright.I fall asleep this lonely night. Youthful days when I was me,Of sunny days when I was free.Remind me of the life yet known,Among them all,  I feel alone. When I was...

    I do...mostly in my language

    but I have written in English too. Maybe one day I will be brave and foolish enough to share. I have this silly dream of being published but at one point the memories potraited in the poems took over and I burnt them. I burnt my poems...they were like my diary. It sadness me...

    I appear O, so happy

    and full of cheer yet within I do despair. How can this be? See me Happy, Feel me Sad. Tis a Mask I say, Theatrics. An act of Drama and Measure the joy without, Sound the depth of my The brilliance of the One reflects The Darkness of the Other. I wear a Light Mask, Yet carry a...

    All of our 'children' are fluffy

    and sweet, except for one thing, they have four feet. Little tongues, so tiny and pink, makes us often wonder and think. They put such smiles upon our faces, running and playing in their own little oasis. They've never known such pain or fear, they are ours to...

    By Me, For My Childhood Abuser....

    I was just a child, and you a man, now I'm an adult, look at me if you can. I'm no longer the child, You sought to destroy, the innocent life, you claimed as your toy. now let's see you hurt me, let's see you try, but you can't hurt me, as I'm stronger inside. You stole the child...

    A CHILD'S GRIP There is a child's fist,

    Inside of me. Clutching tight to what my dad said, When I was three. I remember that night, My mom walked out the door. To leave my dad for good, And forevermore. I was very sad, That she was gone. My dad turned to me, And said "Son, You're a big boy now, And big boys don...

    The fragments of my mind can't seem to grasp

    ISLAND OF ISOLATION Door slams shut.

    Heels clicking, Echoing down the driveway. Gears grind. Tires squeal, Rubber burns. Mother is gone. Father is alone. And so am I. Train rolls on by. Whistle blows. Hear a child, That doesn't cry. Anymore. Pain burns so deep. Can't find it. No more. Silently weep...

    One look from you, I bare my soul Rarer than you will ever know Forbidden love, friend or foe I cannot hide, what I cannot show Exquisite torture, I hesitate Led by longing, lust, or fate But through every pulse, you resonate Made all the sweeter for the wait Touch me now with...

    An ocean of memories of you to whom of

    which i have no recollection. Who are you and who am i? Blind like a child in a dark room crawling towards a life unknown Tenderness more scarce than Lust In cities of Steel ,devoid of trust we travel between now ,before and then until it is time to repeat again.

    Drifting in a wooden coffin on black water.

    The hot awkward summer haunting and beckoning. A uncertain future promoted and putrid. My heart aches for belonging far from here. The city grime and tainting of fear. I don't accept the control, it doesn't support the whole. I want to wake up from this dark dream and get off...

    The Stars They Burn Out.

    A man cannot be a king when he has no castle. A bird it cannot fly without its wings. A dog cannot be trained without a master. A song cannot be sung when there's no one there  to sing. The world is always flat in our dreams and nothing is ever what it seams. In the end , the...

    CASTLE OF PAIN Fear was my counselor,

    My closest companion. Love was like the dawn, Sweeping over the horizon. But I hid from it's light, Deep within the dungeon of myself. Strength in my loneliness, Was what I counted as my wealth. I built the walls, To keep the hurt outside. I knew the truth, But when I spoke I...

    Another poem from my youth.

    DENIAL OF LOVE Cupid's bow twangs, Broken arrows, On my heart. Lovely little sparrows, Ripped apart. I am dying. But have no fear. I am crying. But shed not a tear. I am trying. But it's not too clear. I am lying. When I look in the mirror. Death rides my soul. Look into...

    My Garden

    We All Have Our Demons

    We can't forget our past no matter how hard we try. But the tears we cry ,can wash away the demons inside. It doesn't take much for our past to return. A sound or a song, and those memories burn. I wish we could forget the thoughts that haunt our soul. So we could look forward...
