The void

The void calls

It takes your heart

Your thoughts circle

Feelings die, reaction lives

Shadows show you light

Books read by illiterate

Become hymns change d

Verses drift chorus away

Fading to white

We’re claiming purity

Deep inside were know

Void is anything

But clean

Hourglass

The pinch in the hourglass

My eyes live there

I have a model of perfection

It teases my last feeling

There’s a trap within all of us

We pretend it doesn’t matter

Fools believe I this is true

The taste of forbid fruit

It remains strong after we think

Issuing excuses for why

But never replacing the temptation

Someday I will taste that moment

I hang on the moment forever

My heart beats to get me by

My eyes live in the hourglass

Perchance

Can you make me forget?

I look to escape the day

Thoughts tease what could happen

Reality whispers what will never occur

Lines separate here and now

Fragile dreams dance upon breezes

My obsession clings to maybes

I ask again, can you make me forget?

Yesterday is a complex knot.

Things once held power crumple

Dreams lay upon the ground in pieces

Hopes nothing but ties that bind

Doubts flavor the air upon your breath

Wanting to be part wastes on the vine

I seek roads not to be traveled

Responses without form of measure

The moment golden in distant light

Things served negligence steeped with desire

Thrills within the hidden places of the heart

To bask in warmth of could be’s

The price of release far outweighs the cost
