The New Age

It was a long time ago, long before I could know Of obsolescence Ancestry; old books with stories that now collect dust Of romance and history, once new with gleeful shine turned to rust Quieted, berries of passion red, saddened blue They will say the golden times had every hue  […]

To Never Love Again

Arching back It isn’t the age that hurts Throbbing Because my heart has sunken Deep in the fabric of time That I will never get back A brocade of all the golden moments In my current despair a silver lining Highlighting you And how you are still my favorite Reason […]

Breaking The Habit

Ad infinitum a never ending sequence Lying in the wake of repetition; habitual frequence To wonder predictably all the same things is the unconscious Dauntless and diving, freefall thoughts thriving; to want, I want this Faultless and driving, the sea calls out trying; a wave, reaches for the sky ..
