Pure light and sound
Just plain light and sound
That’s what our bodies of made of
Not sugar and spice that we know of
Not everything nice as we talk about; as we say
Just the five elements which obstruct the way
Blocking the source of the light and sound,
To which we are by the elements bound
The light, the sound and the elements so found
Together play games so that they are not found
While we labour through life so unsound,
Until we reach the grave which is a mound
Seeking the mystery of our so called life;
Which is filled with both joy and strife
Until we discover the light and sound
Which makes our life go round and round
“Let’s play a game,” I whispered;
And the night sky swallowed my words.
“Would you rather watch
or the snowflakes?”
“The stars,” you replied without
pausing for thought.
And it was then that I knew you were a dreamer,
For we dream in stars
And we sing in constellations.
We see not a sky,
But a black ocean,
With tides of diamonds flung across
We see light.
We see light in the darkness as I
taught you to see the rainbows in the
I know where they hide.
We are not trapped by the sky’s
You told me,
But instead, we are protected by
The stars know everything that’s
Because their days are spent
Watching our nights steal behind our
As we sink into the
I look up,
Because I hear the stars whispering
Whispering with their glittering eyes.
The stars sing to me.
They comfort me with their burning
And they whisper,
“Hold on, just a little longer.
You’re going to be
“Do you want to hear something
strange?” I whisper.
“I believe them.”
For we dream in stars
And we sing in constellations.
Medium, light brown
Half circles lightly speckled beside
Rhymes, commas and perspectives.
And as a finger brushes along
These fading half circles,
You may but almost feel a
Bitter passion in her words of despair.
moth wings flutter
the porch light
i am drowning
and all is fine.
you are my friend
i ask nothing of this vast sea
this vast sea asks nothing of me
i wish the air
could be here too
to see the world
from waters view
but air wafts
far up there
a flow I thought
i must look down
to see what is
near the ground
to my surprise
none at all
just more sea
i slowly fall
into the sky
a mid night
light swims about
ebb and glow
down where I
can never go
MY MIND YELLS!
for me to breathe
and of this
i cannot conceive
for to breathe is to die...
...and breathing is
a part of me
as the wave
is of the sea
The black deer graces headlights again,
Unusually an often occurrence.
Beams burn the animal,
But it feels love.
Absolutely, entirely backwards.
The deer is broken,
Like the light reflecting off your cheeks.
Head pain, a headache,
Left little for the mind to chew
And I've been suffering for weeks now.
I drew inspiration from dust off strangers feet.
I've never been so dull, so bland, so colourless.
Mental instability, she's pretty but she's dead
And he's looking for cheap porn.
Welcome to psychedelia and the twisted webs of today's society.
Paint your own empty shadow,
No one else wants it until you join pop
And pop ain't my thing.
Cheeks hollowing out. Eyes burning white over black.
Uniqueness fading to pinpoints,
Then pfting out like the embers of candles.
LIGHT IN THE DARK
Upon The Oaks,
Mighty Tall And Old
Standing Long Before I
Was Born. Dogwoods Are In Bloom
And The Pathway Has Some Shade Now.
How Beautiful The Dappled Looks,
Shining And Dancing As The Breezes Blow.
So Softly The Light And Cast Shadows Play.
O I Love To Watch This As I Walk!
The Birds Are Returning Again,
And Soon Warblers Will Sing.
Migrant Birds Are Passing,
Through The Area.
took a step into a crowd
felt a wave through the ground
as she lost her friends
with the beat and the sound
then the mad man pulled her by her hand
into another land
spoke the words of youth
gave her an option to choose
leave the confusion and the blues
he said with his eye fire waiting to set loose
burn her alive with the madness
that's what she choose
the fast cars and the clothes
she told him light my way
take the wheel
cause I've been driving for so long
and my vision is unclear
take my hand indulge my innocence
so he drove her over the clouds
wrapped her in metals of distance
twisted her existence
swirled her in a galaxy of imagination
her own heaven in creation
till one day his heart changed
as he pushed her down the stairs of heaven
and broke her every bone
the ground was cold hard stone
she was left twisted broken and all alone
reaching for a phone but there's no connection
in the black hole of confusion
time passed as she painted every perception expected
hoping to find a solution
that's when she realized it was all an illusion
the words the thrill the charm
she was about to burst but she just stayed calm
as she reached out but there was no arm
so she got herself up and walked into the hazy clouds
she had strength in herself but she also had doubts
then she heard a voice so sweet and tender
he said lead your own way and never surrender
He did not come prepared to dance
but then again, he never does
and suddenly finds himself
in the same tux
that is pulled just a little too tight
that was starched just a little too much
and the scratching of the cuffs
He always has the same partner
though he never learned her name
some times, he hears her whisper
but that is his name
maybe it is hers too. He never knows.
She wears a light champagne dress
with an iridescence about the aura
that keeps changing
he can't quite
but she grabs him before he can figure it out
this strange girl
and begins to spin
feet thrown wildly
she rests one hand above his crotch
it is almost nice
and then he feels the blood
of a stab
to the waist
he can't scream
her lips muffle it
the kiss melts his bones
sets him vibrating fast
she has him tight; one hand wrapped around his intestines and her tongue thrust down his throat and they are still spinning
