Poetry: Trusting the Past

I have known you for a lifetime Considered you a constant companion You possessed my trust Through many dark days Now look at where we have come There is no presence My life is forsaken This spirit is foundering Introspection is cruelty Seeing now the past through new sight Am I truly made in your...

Poem: Honor

Abandoned, alone Untrue, yet the thought remains Eternally the stranger Standing apart Alien to the the outcast A mockery of man Enduring the violence of a savage Some throwback to bygone ages Infuriated with dishonor Raging against malfeasance Some distant element of myself Stifled over long years Reemerging after forced containment Longing to lash out...

Poem: Untitled, old

As you lay, alive and dead, I wonder, ponder, and weep Over the destruction of our dream I stand close by, watching you As you sleep without waking The result of a loving relationship Lying a few feet away in another bed Clean, sterile, orderly The very image of medical efficiency How did I fail...

Poem – Fleeting

Who Might You Be?, A Poem

Good afternoon May I shake you by the hand I wouldn’t be so forward To make an assumption Not everyone cares for a touch I mean no offense But you look fascinating to my eyes Such colors to wrap about yourself Purple is a favored hue of mine A merry layer of shades Yet, your... Continue Reading →
