What doesn’t stay

Sand falls less quickly

Hourglasses choke today

What I lost

Buried deep in past

Things devolved in value

My mind describes

Shadows in solid touches

Still thinking it matters

Time doesn’t know

Nor care about me

Dust in the wind


Eyes of Green

Dreams feed the mind

Fantasy nurtures the heart

Trapped by pools of green

Release reluctantly by blinks

Catch me watching you

Strange feelings well within

Obsession is terrible addiction

Scratching inaccessible itches

Hope breaths desperation

But curves raise the pulse

Dreams still feeding mind

Fantasy starving the heart

Sapphire blue

Sapphire blue

Piercing sky resets eyes

Clear autumn air livelives

Colors of trees flavor world

Energy channels

Warm days refresh world

Cool nights remind us of change

Squeezing last of the warmth

Sapphire blue

Numbs the future chills

Hoping for Indian Summer

Remembering the summer


My hands mold clay

The more it moves

The less it calms

Like distance breezes

Believing stirs tiny change

Calmness comes from inspiration

Exhaustion slows the mind

Acceptance is the dream

Inside we build fortresses

Perhaps one day it’ll come

Serenity seldom climbs walls

It is the clay we mold

The ball we smash

Over and over again


Four woes make a room

Sorrow the prefect ceiling

Loneliness self incarceration

Others just don’t allow expression

Absolute comfort in distress

Absolving cathartic for others

The world put me here

So I believe questioning it all

Sure noone wishes the things

But gripping the known easy

Strangling hope to lower the bar

Plenty of ways to separate peace

Tomorrow it’ll be different

It was supposed to be today too.

Quiet of the Night

My conscious walks the halls

Footsteps of earlier events go by

What if’s hang in the air like dust

Pieces of unresolved items shimmer

I pretend it doesn’t matter at all

Still the footsteps ring out

My mind fits puzzle pieces together

I have no idea of the image

Just assure myself it matters

Sleep drifts to others as I ponder

Paths lead somewhere I don’t know

I pretend I do again tonite

As my conscious walks the halls

As it is below

I jump into the water

Waves swallow me whole

Caresses of silent cocoon

Sole sensation drowns the world

Sound of heartbeats echo

Their drumbeats drive me on

I’m searching blind inside

It consists me somehow

Isolation brings out myself

Filters lost on dry land

Immersion therapy my calling

Serenity wakes my soul

I channel through the water

Dreading the world above


Sure about that?

Simple questions

Most difficult answers

Memory sanitize thoughts

Of course, I didn’t…

But wait there was…

Nevermind it was long ago

Maybe didn’t think first

No harm, no crime

Life is lived in greyscale

We keep saying it wrong

Everything is black and white

Just not in reality

We play facts away

Still holding truths distant

Surely, I know I’m right

I’m the one remembering

What was the question anyway?


Somewhere in the distance

Thoughts hide from today

Warmed by a far off Sun

Chilled by mountain breeze

They tantalize with shadows

Torment with faint smells

Messages in braille to the sighted

Enigma are their names

Like a memory they fade
