Purple Heart

Under the yew in acrid taste; poison on my tongue Where consternation grows as wild as this overgrowth To have lived so long in the bitterness of a memory Red passion, lights that signal; the end, stop. As I try to pick up these small fragments Fallen and cursed to […]

All Tied Up

Whimsical and sick Delighted though distraught Diseased and can’t resist With heart lessened, learned to not Perturbed and taught to be tied in knots Restricted, each breath comes to a stop Halted in the silence then loud gasps in a struggle To be swimming but losing energy Trying to find […]

Old Visitor

Exquisite and cultured coriander sweat Dripping expectation and runaway  Small crumbs of bread in my hand Pray for me and safe travel  I’d sip wine the most bitter If it could donate my will and hope Blood that I have saved, all for you Hundreds of drops Slow and sincere, […]

Silence is a Song

No music and no silhouettes, closing your eyes to find that peaceful sound of nothing at all. No images, no words to describe the surroundings or any figures, just nothing. Gentle breezes may whistle gently across the inner lobes of your ears and bounce off the prominence of your tragus […]

Drive Away

For as long as I can remember I hated the way you drive Aggressive No respect for others You hogged the road And when others needed space You showed no compassion In all that time I somehow got nowhere You knew what was best So did I When the fork […]
