Path Finders

Fireworks in the sky mark the grand finale Color depth in the night hides amongst the stars Explosions in my heart appreciative of the eyes Looking down at the pages I write Steadfast and nimble tracing letters Words forming the foundation of my spirit Happy Even if I am always […]

Sleeping Sunrise

The aurum of just after day Sincere and so serene Golden sets of mannequins, they’re reaching for the sea The plastic wishes fragile yet extreme Washes away in our sleeping sunsets I guess No let’s — Find our ever-after Bathed in moonlit matter Neon lights and laughter Drunken stupor or […]

From: You

The gone but not forgotten æther of your being hanging like fruit in the skies Sunsets; closing the rays of your breath I miss The tarnished; mania succumbs not in My heart pining, droning sounds of a star’s demise Falling stars with wishes that die in words, this— Sinking feeling; […]

Little whispers in my ears Echo bidirectionally In and out The words of my worst fears As though a reflection of me Shows my doubt In what is real and make believe Followed, running, panicked Wallowed, saddenning, manic These voices of yours, they never leave © The Sad Owl

“Never Again”

Never again Will I feel sweet supple lips that couple around mine a bitter kiss that I will miss Never Will I fall for your slick words and cherry lipstick the way you spark a small wick Again Melting wax on a candlestick your words trick sputtering flames to spit […]

Clothes in the Dryer

I tried For a long time Cried A loss of mine Everyday I read the labels and their instructions You and I pulled by cables at first introductions The fabric of my favorite tee shirt Was now less tightly woven than my heart strings We laughed and smiled a flirt […]

Morning Countdown

Lavender Lavender Lavender The smell of her a reminder of how only in memories I will find her Time blurs the images of those times and as I age I grow blinder All life has a destination preset but on a different timer Some countdown on clocks; others in sands […]
