When The Heart Sleeps

I’ll go away if you want Like ghosts; love’s apparitions In no condition The soul will not sleep Where the heart doesn’t rest Whole and breathe deep The mind becomes a mess Dreaming of someone far away Distantly where no one can wait Walking away with no one to nowhere […]

Hill Side

I can never leave this place Holds me by the soul Hand in hand  And down the hole Abyssal sinking Deep breaths between the walls Move me jarringly Trip on and trip over Along and to move on But after What waits for us? © The Sad Owl

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 […]

Still Here

Opulus I look fondly  Lay my head in your lap Peddle me your sincerity  Brush my hair lightly And say you’re right here A cold hart at the end of its life Races through the snow Barren and without food  I could not relate, feed my soul You’re always right […]

Far Farm

On the far range alone Behind thistle and haystacks bundled neatly into cylinders Lanterns light guiding home To miss a little; long for a lot, whittled wood into thin air Small objects of the mind are Memories. They can’t be bought but we do share Statutes of limitations demanding that… […]

End of The Line

Rubbing mitts together on a cold morning Awaiting the desert sun with puffs of warm breath Longing forever without warning The imminent will come, the past will have left Rosy cheeks where you waited Laughing as I ran and barely made it Youth is as foolish as forever But that’s […]

Unsent

It was pointy The sharpness of a pinprick; needle For the various mistakes that I – would often try to mend Delightedly The wincing of a forced smile; feeble For all the time borrowed that I – will not give back again I am sadly Reading letters from then A […]

Seedlings

All times end This time is ours Until it’s not Now and then Like cherry blossoms Fallen gone A moments bliss Life goes on Our beauty but a season Existence without reason Blissful smiles we need them Lamenting cries; the grieven The future we pass on To never see new […]
