A deflection
Swift. Graceful

But not eternal

Waning respite
Scarlet under the moon

the rain keeps
pouring
James Walker Dec 2021
The face is
a...
Canvas
of radiant
everwarming
everlonging
ever...saying
everything that matters in this
world

We say so much
with
so little

We think too much
and too
little

We do just and never
enough

But life must go on
So
let's just keep
smiling

Poetic Satisfaction
Still trembling at the finger
Tips

The scale of all for all to see
Like open arms’ embraced

A word
A song

Such depth and
superfluidity

Ever longing for...
more

Banking on the thoughts
of the next freeway
running below the wheels of
achievement

looking forward to
forever letting
go

The answer is out there
waiting,
whispering
singing songs of
welcome

The months pass by
The children play their silly games
I wonder which step to take
Next
My dreams are filled with thoughts of
New places and
Exciting things
But
My car broke down
And all I'm getting is
the side of the road

Double down
stumbling
through mountains
of my own assholery
enjoying the range
of ******
left in my wake

once upon a time
they apologized less
men were men
and
able to test their mettle
of courage and bravado
but
now emptied of all
filled with remorse
the only word they know
is 'sorry'
Stop apologizing for standing to close, almost touching me, and for looking in my direction. Have you no shame? We all have a right to exist you know... people seem to apologize just for being there these days
James Walker Nov 2016
You're such a
Neanderthal
your
barbaric ways will be the death of
us
the truth shines bright
like the star in our sky
but
you stopped seeing
long ago
when they lied about
God
