Afraid Of the Dark

How many times must I rinse off the moon

And unpeel the stars from my skin?

Have someone ask what were you drinking?

How many times must I try clinging to lamp lights?

Try configuring keys into shining beacons?

I cannot see in the dark

Yes, blackouts steal my sight

But when finished,

I wake up feeling feverish

And fear ferments and festers

Still this darkness looms over me
Making the love and happiness hard to see
Everything is impossible to try to reach

Bouts of energy come far too little, and far too few

Can't Escape

But they latch on way too tight,

It physically and mentally drains.

But still I endure it, hoping

One day I will finally escape the pain.

Winter Town

 

March winds stir listless eddies,

fluke in tired gusts over thin pools,

flare through fields of stubble

then flag, exhausted, sour and wheezing

from the blowing day;

coughing, rubbing arthritic fingers,

cold as a church bell sounds the hours.

 

Spring will be late this...
