    Loathsome vile carrion heap Red the blood

    through parched earth seep. Bones of the past all neatly arrayed, My futile scratchings all displayed. Rended flesh once pink, now green, All about this ghastly scene. Nerves still arc in pains grim charge, Life of agony in words writ large. Lungs still gasp with labored breath...

    When our hands touch,

    And our fingers entwine, Your face, your lips so close to mine, Sweet chills run up And down my spine.

    The Damaged Tree

    .......To see a world in a grain of sand, to hold what falls in your hand. To know the future, but be surprised it takes place as long ago planned. Like an artist takes his tools out to paint. A long lonely walk he takes. Down the path through the holler. Up a hill, pass the...

    An old one from my old account.

    Lonely Tree

    Sometimes I wished I'd have toys, other years games. But I don't really remember when, I wished for a woman in my bed. Maybe when I was ringing groceries, into a laser eyed counter. Maybe the first time my car got stuck in a snowy patch in winter. But I remember the boughs of...

    lord of fools, king of lies,

    halls of time washed by tides. the hand of healing weilds the blade, with deft incisions, memories fade. screaming silence fills the ears, as the child drowns in tears. growing pains, and rods of steel, bend his will, from realms surreal. a crowded nothing, an empty mind...
