Just Drinking

It’s probably just a habit Certainly and forsooth  Whisky glasses’ ice turn like planets Sadly the way I move Jagged, ridged, redd Lagging head and dread  I can’t tidy my mind though Something like the way you make my heart slow  Love as blind as the ocean deep Dreams of […]

Star Light

What does it mean to have a soul at rest? I wander, along the shore where waves lightly brush the sand. The glimmer of salted grains reflect the stars and darken as they eclipse behind clouds. My footprints wash away along with the light. I wonder, will I too disappear […]

Night Mare

The eyeless visionaries with dreams to disseminate  When malice grips the heart it becomes a dark horse Sight becomes marred as the dirt kicks up Steam will exit the equine  Short bursts of passion spurring forward Until the marrow too runs dry  When the sweet delight of high raised cheekbones […]

Tapas and Wine

We were laughing “Tapas” What was it that we found so funny about that word I wonder now as I lay by our favorite window seat The rain tapping at the window As if someone is calling to me From somewhere far off Splaying along the translucency Like fingers spreading […]

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 […]

Unforgettable

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
