A Drowning Dream.

To learn everyday was what taught to me,
Sinking in an ocean, moving steadily;
It was the ocean of knowledge and believes,
Suddenly the world changed, and power came to cease.

'Look at him, look at her', comparing to the whole world,
Trying my very best, to win in every word.
Becoming a good son, a dear brother and good friend,
But that 'I', was lost in the end.

I became what you want,...

Unsent letters

entry picture

How many love letters do I have to write before they are sent
How many hours do I spend and lament
Over the impossible dream
The one that can’t be seen
And more and more it seems
Like it’s never going to be

The Shape of Us

entry picture

The shape of our love, our version of it,
Exists in bubbling thoughts of former lives
And constant dreams of distant hearts
Where our lives are entwined

Ripples of waves intersect
Jetting dangerously close
But never on the same path
Turning heads, looking back

How do we get off this track
Without losing control,
Without knowing
Where it will go

The inhabitants look upon us
Making wave...

Fandango

A magenta sky 
greets my morning sigh.

Another majestic day, 
lost in the minutia of life.

Shoulda, coulda,woulda,
paralyzing dream sabers. 

Distractions abound.

Download another book,
refresh the poet's page.

Escape, behind a waterfall
of tears.

Long nights,
paved years. 

Fandango memories
sustain me. 

Resilience 
prevails.

Dry your eyes,
face your fears.

Wr...

Pain

You lie awake in bed with your eyes swollen from the tears and the pain

Wondering why you deserve to hurt

You play back scenes in your head thinking , " Was it all fake!"

The smiles, the love, the times we laid together in bed, talking about children, and houses by the lake

You close your eyes and tears fall down your face and you cry to God , " Please, please make it all go away!"

Wishes

I wish I could tell you how much I miss you but there is no point in that.

I wish that things could be different but I know that they will not.

And I wish I could stop loving you but my heart is so torn and yet so full of love.

I wish I could turn back time and make you be mine.

But these are all wishes that God hears but doesn’t act on.

And everyday it’s a battle to keep moving on ...

Snake Hair

Its been on the ebb since

I was knee-high to a tarantula and

While some say baldness and

Virility go hand in hand meaning

Eunuchs are spared, I'm the

Exception that proves the rule for

I would rarely let my hair down

Even when I had it.

An acolyte of hair tonics since

Billy Walker advertised Vitalis,

Dreams only echo my obsession, whether

Fatal entanglement in the

The Loop At The Edge Of Reason

The Loop At The Edge Of Reason

 

Christmas eve seventy-seven

Snowflakes prickle on exposed skin

I pull the duffle coat tight around my neck

As I weave my weary way up Westgate

Glancing in the Black Horse windows

As the amber light spills out

Onto the crystal streets of Wakefield

Paving them in wuffle-dust

 

My mind wanders and gears click

As I think of all the H...

Lucid Dreams

I want to sleep, so I can dream. 

Dreaming makes the pain go away,

weakens my prison walls,

so you can rescue me. 

 

I feel your warm breath on my face,

your loving embrace... 

 

Hand-in-hand we run through the lush,

exotic island. 

 

Our laughter echoes among the trees

as we look towards the horizon and

see eternity... 

 

Dawn beckons me.

I don’t wa...

Release and cords

Retreat?
Really?
After all I fought for?
All these years for nothing.
I see capitulation in their eyes.
The ones who called themselves
Rebels and activists.
Is that me anymore,
Fighting against a whole world,
Stopped by their own panic?
I see my place not here,
Maybe somewhere in space,
Somewhere on another planet
Where "humans" are no sheep
And individuality is normal.
Excluding no...

Last night, through the window

Last Night, through the Window

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a train;

But I am far from the railway.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a plane;

But I am far from the airport.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard a bus;

But I am far from the road.

 

Last night, through the window,

I heard an owl;

But I am far from the woods.
