Living

Living


On the edge, with a different point of view
The getting, by another, the same as you
What’s up is up, what’s down is down
How a smile is to a frown
It’s black and white
It’s day and night
When two connect
Each other must protect
High 5’s, the virtual kind
Sharing of similar mind
Jabs, coyly given in jest
Air hugs, when hearts are not at its best
Many friends in parts of the world
But one, makes lips sweetly curl
Distance strikes from time to time
Wonders, in reason or rhyme
Mine is not to drift and die
But to live and try
Being alone, does not sadness make?
Accept, to live it with choices made
Some say they get it
Only one, knows it
Whose stride glides in a similar gate
Side by side a virtual soul mate
The missing truly hurts
Hope, sublimely worse
Until united perchance again
To laugh aloud at life’s pain
Time apart can heal
Forge a bond of steel
When two hearts beat as one
Under the same moon and sun
Longing of a face, long not seen
But lit up, on a illuminated screen
How would it end if never met
The thought, painful blooms beget
Pondering over burning canabis
Best leave it as it is
To destiny, come what may is His
In Living, a soul too tired to do this


A➰

All Night Long

Surrounded by people no more

Scent of perfume forlorn

Spirits disinfecting

Souls disappearing

Oh how far man has come

Over time counting to a sum

Oblivious, as the end of life looms

Overwhelmed by deaths toxic fumes

Struggling to find the words

Sadness crying and it hurts

Strikes a moment the world is hushed

Starts the first line of a poetic thrush

▶️

Yes, Yes, Yes

Whispered gently, ever so gently

With every touch felt from the vibe of these words. Echoes in time every syllable and rhyme. Trying to keep, rhythm flowing, tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding.

▶️

…tugging hair, nails deep, clawing flesh red and bleeding. Lips to lips, hands clutching hands, legs that entwine like the vines that sprout fruit to make wine. Drunk on the very thought, grooving on a buzz, lit afire by the desire to make love all night long

▶️

…make love all night long

A Heart That Bleeds

A Heart That Bleeds


the want is deep in a love where the heart bleeds…

there is no puncture no physical wound
to release the ache
that grows inside
a heart that bleeds

it boils slow, bathed in tears
it flows over pouting lips
taste the bitterness
a heart that bleeds

the tongue licks
saltiness, sorrows bliss
from days that pass to tomorrow
a heart that bleeds

floods inward
without escape
left to decay
a heart that bleeds

broken and shattered
left alone battered
when love hurts
a heart that bleeds

Above La Lunas’ Glow

Above La Luna’s Glow


Above la Luna’s glow
Eyes cast beyond stars
Darkness consumes
All, of a lonesome heart
Wingless blackbird
Stranded on earth
Rooted to ground
Misery found

Above la Luna’s glow
A beacon pulls
Connecting soul and mind
Sucking the energy dry
Eyes shaded black like coal
But shines with a glow
Bright as the moon
An onyx one

Above la Luna’s glow
Waits, a far away home
Ferryman journeys
Collecting passengers
Scarred with the mark
A ticket to ride
Galaxy’s past
Light years away

Above la Luna’s glow
Fades in, new dawn
Witness, the rising sun
Still, planet earth
Counting the minutes
Ticking and tocks
Passing of time
Lost, lost, still lost

Above la Luna’s glow
Returns the yearning pull
Glides the razors edge
A mark left by a previous scar
The ferryman nods
Opens the door
Taking a soul
To a world unknown

Above la Luna’s glow
One will never know
What lies beyond the known
In death, dreams may come true
To close the eyes
For the very last time
A silence grows
As the final breath blows

Suicide Is Painless


A sip of ‘shine that buys courage, to run a blade amuck, encouraged
Back to back with a shadow lurking, demon guides an evil working…

Suffers when daylight breaks
Knowing, life outside is calling
Dragging feet to a seconds beat
Every step clicks to the sound of a tick
Sipping hooch made from skin and herb
Opens the door, to lead to a magical place
Beyond the beyond, that can only be imagined
Hallucinating peace for a broken-hearted seed
Lost among humans who kill their own race
Sunset love, gives hope that such beauty exists
On a planet that lives to destroy what it gives
Such pain to endure, is it worth waiting for?
That a ship would appear, beam a light that steers
A journey through a hole in the fabric of time
End the tragedies that Shakespeare has’t written
Yield to the demon from darkness comes from
Take ones own life to live anew, far away from this view
Suicide is painless except for the one who loves you
