WHY

WHY

I often ask myself that question Well, I ask it almost very day Why am I who I am? Why do I do the things I do? How is it, that the actions of my youth have created the man that stands before me now? Why are we? The mathematical equations should prove that we as...
Dark side of the moon

Dark side of the moon

Just what do you think…? When the light dies at night… When the voices go from clatter to whispers… The moons shadow casts her scowl across your room.. She loves you, you know… As you huddle in your blankets, hating her.. It’s your mind that created the hate, your...
HUMAN NATURE HUMAN TORTURE

HUMAN NATURE HUMAN TORTURE

Fleeting through my mind As indiscriminate thoughts do So small so hard to catch What would you find if the aging reflexes of your dying husk were to catch one? What would they mean to anyone but you? I met a lesbian once She hated men for no other reason other than...

PASTA ON THE FLOOR

Dancing like Angels Cheese lay scattered like worshipers in their wake Hints of herbs waltzed beside in an inescapable trance So hard to keep your eyes off them Like a highway accident where you know someone has died This figure of food So eloquent in their stance...
MIXED BAG

MIXED BAG

As each day goes by With every passing moment Anything could happen Life Love Death The end of each day brings closer your demise Yet we wake We laugh Cry Die Be it our body Or our souls Each day we lose a little bit more That little bit of who we once were As we wake...

LITTLE LAMB

HOMELESS

HOMELESS

Rushing through the trees Looking for that thing you didn’t know you lost That piece you could never find Yet always knew you never had Forever running blindly tripping over the love of those you fail to see Cursing your life Spitting on your job Ignoring the...
VOICES FROM THE PAST

VOICES FROM THE PAST

I’m not a big fan of this poem, but it holds a certain meaning to me. Sitting in my chair I watch the sun as it casts it fading glow Stretching across the room Crying for more time A voice from my past whispers to me My childhood beckons My innocent times...
PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME

PLEASE DON’T LEAVE ME

I witnessed this many years ago. That moment in time has never left me… Please God don’t leave me! I stood in the darkest corner of my lawn As always trying not to be seen by those that wander the streets at night I heard the cries before I saw the woman A lone...
SITTING ON THE ROOF

SITTING ON THE ROOF

This is another long poem, sorry. I sometimes get carried away once in the zone… I watch as the clouds roll silent across my view They seem sad sometimes Like myself They drift endlessly Like myself With a meaning without meaning A purpose Whatever that may be...
WHISPERING THE WORDS OF GOD

WHISPERING THE WORDS OF GOD

Silent in the wilderness of life they call Silent in the world this life So loud you cannot hear them So quiet you feel their screams trying to explode through your mind The beat It goes on It is constant in this monotonous world we have created A mantra for the...
