Kemo Sabe

entry picture

He had no face, he had no name

He used his silver bullets

to shoot you down in flames

I was Tonto to his Kemo Sabe

We were friends; I was a fan

When he rode off into the sunset

I was left to ask...who was he?

Who was that masked man?

Nihilism

The concept of death doesn't scare me
We're all just dust on a big picture
So don't think so highly of yourself
When you die and everyone you know die 
There goes your memory

We all have two deaths after all
The first one shouldn't scare you at all
It's the second one you should fear
We are all just memories in this world
And when all that's gone we are nothing

Grim but it's the base...

Trapped

I'm stuck.

I have nothing else left to say.

I have no luck.

I don't want to feel this way.

 

I'm trapped.

I don't what I'm supposed to do.

I'm done doing this act.

There's nothing left in my view.

 

Help me.

I'm stuck on a rollercoaster of fear.

I can't see anything

There's nothing left in me but tears.

Butterflypoem/8 earth angels

She was an earth Angel, 

Destined to walk the paths 

Of enlightenment 

To help others 

To find their light, 

For this was her destiny 

And forever in her heart 

Was a long time, 

He was Destined to cross 

Her path. 

Time and time 

Again and together 

They would make each other 

Stronger 

For two earth angels 

Are better than one..... ♥

Comfort

entry picture

I went to my mother for comfort

When I was too young to know better.

Later I turned to dope, speed, acid. 

As comfort goes that was good for a while.

Much later I drowned myself in the comfort of alcohol.

Or perhaps it was anaesthesia. I don't recall.

Driving down country lanes

Every night when I close my eyes, memories from a thousand years comes back alive and shadow becomes me.

Most times I can taste my soul; its not a picture of a happy ending, it's bittersweet.

I feel them every night as they come alive, ready to prey on the little sanity I have left, then I think of nothing but white walls and oceans, praying not to get lost in its calmness.

Hurricane Girls

The most beautiful kind

Are the most dangerous

 

Standing transfixed

As she tears you apart

 

Ripping out the roots you had built

And the walls you had planted

 

She leaves you in awe

As she glides away

 

A grey and blue trail

Of beauty and pain

 

And you realize why all

Old layered shades hide deep in sellophane redoubts.

These chemical stamps of monochrome yesteryears

Endure in dormant grace, outlasting referents;

Dark faces; snowy eyes and lips; and raven tears.

This grainy hall of odd, inverted flesh,

Black snows and ivory shadows, best reflects

Our moral universe, inverted and reversed;

The morning sun chases night away, the valley framed in red. The mountains bow before the sky, their heads are crowned in shadow. Their wisdom withheld from parched lands, their tears of flowing waters.

Wandering Wondering Thoughts

 

My thoughts they wander round and round

And never do abate

They wonder what I'll do with them

And what will be their fate

 

They wonder if they might become

Jewels within a crown

Or discards on my mind-dump

And never more abound

Wicca, witch, in whispering wood.

 

 Now, in times of turbulence

The devotees of the vacuous

Will turn and burn the witch.

 

For, in the lore of the wise,

There is no disguise

With inhibitions down, they start caressing skin
With the frolicking hands reaching for some more gin
