Dropped to Earth

entry picture

Diamonds don't impress, they like color

often follow their hearts

from one end of the earth to the other

 

In the evenings, on a hilltop with a view

the stone they lay on retaining warmth of the glowing red sun

Gathering round of a few closer friends

laughing, basking, and just plain having fun

 

Old in the soul were they, and young at heart

all believers of a perfect...

Moonshine Cherries

entry picture

You’ve got those moonshine cherries

burst in my mouth

have ‘em when I need ‘em

make me think of the South

 

Just like that sparkle in your eye

their moon-time shine

burns a trail of fire

as if by design

 

All warmth and glow

cherries in a jar

black molasses slow

white lightnin’ from afar

 

Kickin’ in again

kisses sweet as pie

all my heart’s desire

A Night Time Stroll

entry picture

In honor of a night time stroll

I won’t let you down; you should say no more!

The air will be warm, a balmy night

We’ll grab beers to go and a smoke to light

As we make our way down an empty street

moon light, flood light, crickets on repeat

 

At the end right there an ancient house...

One Final Hurt

entry picture

Every now and then, we find a band aide to cover a wound on our soul

As soothing as it seems, we must pay the toll

for it will eventually begin to peel

and in anticipation of the pain we will feel

our muscles tense and our jaws clench

until it is pulled off all at once

like an assassin’s attack with no alert

one final hurt

 

To recover, we sleep as thunder rumbles its wa...

Bloodstone

entry picture

She is cursed to always crave

master to the slave

bloodstone to the master

cradle to the grave

 

He guards his wicked treasure

twilight to the dawn

with a selfishness so absolute

sharing with no one

 

A drop or two won’t satiate

gratify

alleviate

 

It leaves her empty, unfulfilled

left to wonder moonlit fields

barren plains of a love gone wrong

a ...
