Unread Pages(tomorrows never to be)

 

days grew ever darker

pained descents

bleakest places

agonied precipice

slimmed and narrowed,

weighted down

unseen mountains

deepest ravines

crags and ledges

freezing cold

….guilts and faults

not all yours…..

….but you alone

chose to take on

embracing an inner world’s ills

 

but have another drink,

closing

all doors

anyone,

anything

anywhere

anytime

outside

life

shut the blinds, lest any light

ever be allowed

to pierce

your darkness

ever

again

realization

own circles-self appointed

broken paradigm

thrust forth to greater heeding

one becoming part of all

blindly casting stones

remorse never intended

no matter who(all) is hurt

unfulfilled promise

no actions, words not spoken

clock ticks, no remorse

daring thoughts of peace

in times of much warring

strange dreams indeed

bright morning sunshine

but attention diverted

miniskirted lass

Poetic Fragments

eyes captured

by a brilliant sunset to the west

while deeper thoughts

shaped by things east

(A1)

the sun refused to shine today

counting broken promises

(B2)

empty rhetoric and dull threats

this bird has already flown

(C3)

smirking under the cover of moonlight

crickets serenade his thoughts

2013

 

hired dogs of war

political talking heads  

with hardened fingers

pointing across seas

to far-off lands

picking riddled sides

haunting precarious futures

sending tomorrow’s children

while fevered rumors

and blistering chants

languages of war

ratcheting up again

settling  widening differences

with more death, malice, and destruction

trading rocks and stones

of centuries past

for all of the

missiles and bullets

of a warped modern day

 

so soon

 

blood

 

spilled

 

again

 

again

 

again

Churchill Woods 0623 007

churned up from the depths

life and death…..in equal parts

pure neutrality

…of the creation of new

…and the destruction of old
