    The Barbed Wire And The Glass

    Is this where where eden has become? A spoken word a curse a thought a crime? I see mine own flesh cleaved from my bone and all the while an empty throne where once a ruler sat the donkeys braying and rats grown fat my sinews drawn into my noose and from my skeleton an axe how...

    In the Big Dip

    Certain broken promisses remind, questionable fears abide, Perfunctory courtesy slides, Dim stares sheath the eyes, The wheels of existance grind, Deadline dates expire, Eccentricities of time Devoid and multiplied, Old grief, old pain is fire, Hope left foundering in...

    So I Don‘t To Talk To Myself

    All (my) verses...or almost all, beyond the quick tip on the keyboard has the company of tears, as sharp as the last glance, as passionate as the most desirable kiss or as happy as the sweet laughter of a child.From all that I live, little I used to believe, a lot I have survived...

    When I post a poem here it is,

    by some, assumed that the poem is about me or my life. That is not always the case. I strive to understand and experience the human condition. So, although the poem may convey lots of meaning and be emotional, it is not always related to what I am feeling at a particular time or...

    I Never Thought I'd Have to Let You Go

     I never thought I'd have to let you go, It took so long to find you and in that finding was: Life's promise to meet my match, But, here's the catch, I destroy you everyday we are together And, more when we are apart, So, cloaking myself in pain, Covering my skin in...

    Sound Of Color

    hush ...silence your tongue...what was that gentle sound I thought I just heard? It came just after a rain shower...I thought I just heard a rainbow Sounded like crinkling crepe paper, or perhaps light piano keys from behind a closed door - colors really can speak

    Though I Am Dust

     Though I am to become dust That part of me which was my heart, Having been loved by you, Will somewhere become air And in a soft breeze Will make someone smile, not knowing why.

    What Touches Me

    more than love and life and death the revelation that my name has hung upon your breath when you and I were close; as close as close can get And no more thought of other lovers, Other than regret, That I had spent some life with them As you I had not met.

    I Write This Now

    Not all things that do not make sense are stupid, I broke the wing of the South wind in my ignorance, The twelve stones in my breastplate were not mine, Beneath your yoke a laboring giant was sleeping, How well you joke and fiddle to the sound of weeping, Know you, in your old...
