Far Away Sky

Today, beneath the sun, My brother, my sister, Sit and twist this message, Split it in two, Share it like a forbidden secret, On the airwaves, Silent in the night, Beneath the moon, as the werewolves howl, Today, beneath the moon, We dance, we swerve, we sway, Under her majestic moon waves, The airwaves full…

Love Overflowing

Lovely star lain atop the brass alter, Alert for her goddess, Shining light atop the pillar of glory, For her goddess majesty, Justice’s gaze churning the guilty below, Turning tranquil thought into hollowed guilt, Bubbling the soul with regret, Forging pathways on knees of repentance, Filling walkways with tribulations, Turmoil and tumultuous disasters, The air…

Hydroplane

Twisting pathways, hands hanging through the branches, Swaying breeze pushes past, While birds sing high above, Melodies wash over me, Dancing in the meadows, High on atmosphere, Adrenaline pumping through my veins, Invigorated, hydro planning fast, On the airwaves of life, Listening to the fast beat, As the radio buzzes away, Song after song, Melody…

Despair

Despair, despair, despair, Despair for the world, As war wages and the multitudes shout, Moving the tidal buldge, Under their mighty armaments, Despair, despair a world controlled by Tyrants, Fools, and the like, Despair, for the hunger, The famine that eats the mighty, Casting the weak like chaff, As Tyrants eat a plenty, Despair, for…

Decisions

Emotions attacked me, Two handed, single coin, Flip to dare, Each life a different stage, Each a hazardous lane, Choices chase me, Day dreaming, day and night, Sleep avoiding me, In my mental fight.

A True Life Experience

Mid-80’s Summer, hot sun beamed day, Cool mountain breeze, on Putney Mountains peak, Soft whisper of branches waving to me, Little boy of no more than five, The forest calling to me, Enchanting voice filling me with promises, The red apple of delight, The sweet nectar for me to suckle, As it drew me into…

Cycle After Cycle, Still Drowning

Broke man, poor pockets, still giving till the end, Jacket there, last twenty here, Living life to the fullest, Blasting music, riding wild down country roads, Drinking till five in the morn, Mourning deep loss, unspoken pain, Drown’n in a bottle, Floating around, alcoholic circles, Regular at the bar, Passing out as many cigs as…

A Soul So Grand

I never met you, Your heart reminds me of mine, I cherish the time you had, Your love, your music, your soul, I never met you, But I hope one day, To shake the hand of a man, Who’s soul was so grand. (A poem about Chester from Linkin Park)

Dissipating Love

Thinking about you year to year, Eon to eon, Flying through galaxy far away, Heart breaker blasting off, Like childhood firecracker memories, Walking away from me, you and me, Oh, our love easily continues on, Over light years and star lanes, Faster than light, yet never catching the other, Lost on rainbows and shooting stars,…

No Good Journey

Off to the track, dollar bill, highest sum in the pocket, Dog running, collar bare, illegally bought at local fare, Young man, running around, Tanned and built on the tred-mill, So ill, down with the local trend, driving that fast riding mare, Around and around, circle by circle, to the winners stand, First place medal…
