Dragon

At foot of musky cave, In murky mire covered in cave moss, Lost among the lost centuries, Overgrown ruins, Lost skeletal remains, Civilization long forgotten, Time frozen, Dragons howl a stark reality, In deaths frozen realm, Fear strikes the blood, Frozen still as howls continue, Longing for mother’s arms, Sweat beading mixed with courageous tears,…

Admonished To Wait For Love

Streached out ghostly arm Attached to nothingness Everything misty white While trapped in everlasting fog Reaching out into reality Fading before my eyes Her ethereal arms wrapping around me Yearning to entwine with my soul Reaching out into my entwined heart My spirit yearning to escape Desire burning inside Wanting, needing, burning Dreaming of being…

Meeting My Grandmother

Sitting at your grave the other day, I had a conversation in the rain on this May, Grandma, we never knew one another, But I can’t help but wonder, How your smile would of made me giggle, Or if your tickles would of made me wiggle, How your cookies tasted, And how everlasting your love…

Gnats Adrift

Well deep, brackish water, attracts death, Skeleton hand drifts, infested by swarming gnats, Horror to horror, Death insists, Death’s wash hung out to dry, Covering barn and sky, on All-Hollow Moon’s eve.

Morning Coffee: #5

I miss my Grandmother dearly. We were never close; but, never too far apart to know we loved each other very much. Her phone calls were short, always to the point. She had strong values and a stronger love for family. She anchored many ships in our family and now I see them adrift as…

Morning Coffee: #1 ‘Good Grief’

Today was an extremely hard day. Getting out of bed felt like dragging the moon across the sky. Gravity welded me the mattress while the sheets fed themselves around me as a Boa Constrictor would. Welled up inside my chest was a wall holding back the flood of tears. My grandmother passed yesterday and I…

Sadness weeps

Sadness sat in her corner, Lonely, dreaming of memories, Her Granny passed today, In the heart of merry May, Fantasizing about hazy days, Filled with bakery, Heart filled laughs, Never to be heard in now empty kitchens. Now Saddness weeps,

Encore

(This is a work of art about Death) The silence beckons, The grave strives, Death works his magic touch, Barge of life awaits, Tickets sold to Death Gate, Down the river wading in bone and gore, Awaiting Deaths encore. (This is a work of art about Death)

HONOR

I am unsure how to credit the photo & story. They both inspire in me a spirit of strength and a desire to share the emotions they bring out in this poem below. Weathered hearts look solemnly upon this child, Expression held back, deep, deep, sorrow, The sparrow neither sings, nor chirps, Little chickadee looks…

GOLEM

Stone weight pressing down, Ribs flex backwards, yearning for release, Choking with strangled coughs, Mass sliding over my body, convulsing Fangs biting down, Blood splattering on waiting floor below, Feeling blow after blow, Hit my brittle, hollow frame, Eureka, I hit wood framed in soil, Pounding fist, cracking wood, Soil falling down through cracked plank,…
