Mother Calls

Mother calls, but I Am already gone, like the wind Through the trees, or the words Of the freed, slave to the past I was, searched, gaped, swallow Always last, because I fought first They made a mess of my face Stripped my hands and tore my heart I was one, now I am twenty … Continue reading Mother Calls

Metamorphosis

Memory plucked From earliest stage Cocoon hijacked Inserted with rage Magnified Raging reckless Moth is social outcast Waiting till the streets are empty But the sky is full Because stars are my only friends Butterflies are bullies Magnificent wings should be plucked Glory meant to mine I was abused by the daylight Emptied of purity … Continue reading Metamorphosis

Telescopes To The World Below

Drunk Sorrow

Songs of Completion

I feel a wind/cool and enlightening carrying hope/a promise of a better tomorrow or simply the next four hours/I work and try to remain present/but man sees little/and the man would have me starve, die anything but confess he is inadequate/I will go to my grave, full of years/wisdom/words few spoken, many saved/for a day … Continue reading Songs of Completion

Pressures

pressure rising/time is flying out my phone screen/into the unknown energy racing through consciousness/did we lose/is our existence ending slipping away/fingertips grazing the cliff below is a wasteland of our own creation/fall into the black/gurgling sickness and disease the breathtaking spectacle of death/tease heaven with goodness/but turn our back when the money flows/blood turns to … Continue reading Pressures
