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,


all doors







shut the blinds, lest any light

ever be allowed

to pierce

your darkness

of Black Days and the Desolation Refugee


Rising from the Ashes

Brushing Off The Dusts

of Lost Times


Energies Zapped

Finally Calling Out By Name

Recognizing Familiar Face

In New Disguise

My Tormentor


I’m Freed Once Again

from It’s Shackles

Now To Pull

at it’s Roots……

Scabbard of Secrets


Briefest Reflection, of a Face

Glimpsed Between, Licks of Flame.

Silently Reflected Upon,

the Blade of a Gleaming Dagger.

Lifelong Wish of Excising, a Well Rooted Darkness Within.

And All it Would Take, Is an ever Tempting Twist of the Dagger.


So Sweet

So Close

And Yet,

So Very Far


Beginning to End

The Briefest Glance of a Checkered Life


The Common Low Caitiff

Becomes The Hunted


A Flip of Conscience,

Voices of Unaccounted Innocents

Feed Into the Thunderous Cacophony

Shutting Doors

[ The Door ]............EXPLORED 5/21....#117....

[ The Door ]…………EXPLORED 5/21….#117…. #4 for the week…thanks…again!! (Photo credit: ~Willa~)

Shutting Doors

Empty Campaigns, Hellbent Enthusiasm for Yet Another Dark Age

The Persecution of People

Oh, The Many Irrational Fears Coming to Light

Thank You Not

I’ll Not Take Part In, or Be Involved in the Backwards Progression

Mindless Masses

Hungry, Eating Up Angry Diatribe-Appetite from Dark Places

All Things Logical,

Not Even Part of Your Landscape of Possibilities, A Certainty of Shunning Away of The Positive

Broken Logic,

Ill Fitting Shoes, Not Fitting My Paradigm

Dark History,

Xenophobic Populace, Not Open to Embracing Change or Difference


Breath In, Breath Out……..


Break The Chain,

Dare to Be Different,

Dare To Think Differently,

Dare To Think Outside the Box,

Dare to Be open To New Things,

Dare To Embrace Difference,

Dare to Not be Part of the Growing Hate Machine and Mob Mentality…………………..
