a view from across the room

a view from across the room

 

memorial lunch

grim expressions

and dark clothes

tears brushed away

in secret

burial of body….

memories burning forward

faraway eyes

only where

thoughts are revealed

of many places

of many things

countless…..

for each

so many possibly intertwined pasts

earliest childhood to adulthood

 

not one

seemed to mind

the empty seat

bez światła

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , on October 31, 2013 by lengesinski

bez światła(no light)—-for T.I.

 

words and language

without sentiment

the raging

of internal fires

Oh, to hear the echoes

of just how

dark emptiness…actually sounds

desperate reaching

only to always

fall just short…

attempting

to

fill the void

left

from/by

damaged yesterdays

 interrupted dreams

warped reality

hurtful memories

hurt, where love once should….

…could

might…

have been

damning realization

cutting into now…of this moment

 

I

see the darkness

far deep

beyond your eyes

I

sense the void

where your heart….

once was

and

all is explained

Poetic Fragments

 

dancing in the moon’s light

blind indifference

to the stares….

of morning commuters

mad laughter

echoes

in the subway

tunnel

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

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

Imagination

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , on September 4, 2013 by lengesinski

imagination

 

boundless

not to be confined

formless

of many shapes

limitless

only mortal boundaries

palette

every colour scheme

Bane

Bane

 

shrill

 

echoed screams

 

met with

 

apathy

 

blue skies and puffy clouds

-above

 

cold indifference

 

dark lapping waters

-below

 

where to…

 

goes this pain?
