Whence Came You

Somewhere in the depths water drops off the tip of stalactites Slowly free flowing, uneven decline, one after another in zig zag lines Gently creeping, freefalling while sleeping, the echo of nothing  Peacefully dreaming; a war in the mind laid to rest, no more weeping  Seeping further into the earth’s […]

Intergalactic

Your smile casts a shadow  Crescent as the moon Sharp as a star pointing its light It hurts My heart Familiar and to be forgotten Spoken and distant Whispering along light-years  Somewhere outside the atmosphere I can’t breathe when something so beautiful Remains so far away © The Sad Owl

For a Moment

When still is still Like words etched in stone Forever here After and after  Forever and ever Made for ever  For always, a defunct motto And always will be  Sadly, solemnly Solely take all of me  Take my soul please If you please On my knees pray for me I’ll […]

Subtle Rejection

The way your eyes glow and pupils dilate wide Body turned away and no heartbeat felt inside Hopeful blood rushes through the veins Dreams and thoughts flow inside a brain Too moronic to interpret that Perhaps in fact I am still alone and that you feel nothing at all © […]

Loyal

I could fall asleep Content with whatever outcome If I die then Let the decay of my small crown Holding on to a blackened tooth Procelain keys that rang out Words about you And a quilled tongue Gently feathering All the fine details Send notes of your highness ©️ The […]

Blue Petals Pink

Painting cherry blossoms Littered ground forgotten The petals in my hand fall as steady As the tears in my eyes The river flows and the roots take hold Even this pain can produce Something beautiful ©️ The Sad Owl

Silver Soul

Gently running my hand across old printed photographs Old skin turned to dust reached out to me Hands of the clock trying to lay their fingertips against mine And guide me through their lives Smiles as the then young adults watched children try to eat pie with no hands Pretending […]
