Beauty in Tragedy

Another morning without your wise words or small quips Witty-minded cracked lips dry humor that needs ChapStick Every word read and wrote magic If you told me it wasn’t so, I simply would not have it Havoc, pathos and fears written tragic Never could get past those moments of a […]

A Walk in The Dark (Act II)

Peeling bark and newborn cries Concealed in the shame of her lies Screams Far off the wolves howl high Into the moon new life nigh Bloody Messes of her life she still tries To no avail fails, a roll of the die Murder Hands hold cold corpses twin lives Sink […]

A Walk in The Dark (Act I)

Skin sheen glisten in the moonlight Soft dove no peace uptakes flight Leaves Forest flourish orchids in the night Darkest beasts hide fear holds tight Fallen Porcelain maiden white dress with skin light Tears fall blurr ponds both eyes lose sight Never Escaping feelings those who lose the will to […]

Dropped my Cassette

The echoes of eternity fade My broken cassette The recording that we made must we go Let voices Disappearing for Cheering dear Endearing backwards Steering Crashing gone are We still Going destination Set did you Forget forgotten are We lacking Memory wandering Wondering repeat Rewind   © The Sad Owl

The Set Up

It was hard to swallow The words you said “You’re not getting any younger” But how old is not old enough for this to be okay Settling down But My soul is too young Love shouldn’t be just because

Who?

Through your eyes I see The reflection of a silver microphone in a black screen You said you wanted me To say something about it What was it that you wanted me to say No image on the tv gave only the sound of silence The only way I could […]

Death of a Writer

Wasn’t it your voice, where did it go Lost in the noise, overwhelming echo The past becomes a melancholic musical Somewhat unusual to see you gone It’s now your funeral   Between disappearing and deceased The feeling is still mutual Sadness for the loss of something beautiful Words can’t express, […]
