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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

Snapshot

If love becomes a chore This job I will love no more Deadlines become dead ends Unfinished work becomes trends The peak of my undoing, the good left undone At the top, a mountain with a view of the sun Daylight pours through the window of my soul My bedroom […]

Mistakes

I’d hear small quibble quick Voices meek, weak a little sick Wrongdoing, man is judged in his ways The fruit of his doing, the words he will say Small talks go on about Large monumental actions Unfounded and with doubt Splits a race into factions   Discrimination facing the faces […]

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

Be Kind

Be careful, what you say can be profound Caution to the wind where the words lost are found Unknowing, a mystery behold, futures unfold Destiny a stepping stone, virtues of patience and gentleness Dancing feathers buoyantly float; lightheartedness Darkness, some feathers black; calamuses inked heavily Write the words of thanks […]
