The World, She Weeps

We awake to sunshine on roses Oh but why the World, she weeps? What outlandish cries from devilish eyes attack her while she sleeps? Oh the World, she weeps in shadows and light why must she continue to burn? While terror is winning with Hell’s new beginning It’s she who takes the burden to turn The World, […]

Flowers in a Polaroid

It wasn’t anything special. A Polaroid of the flowers adorning my kitchen table, the pink carnations budding in the middle of an assortment of shy gold and stark white roses. The sun was stinging their petals from the rising of the earth in the morning, but their stance in the photo seemed calm… blushed and […]

Sunday Morning

A sip of something sweet on the front porch rocking chair summer sits patiently behind the dew I wrap my fingers in last night’s damp hair A car whizzes past- in a hurry, in a hurry a butterfly floats in the shade Another sip of coffee in his T-shirt The songs of morning birds fade I think […]

A Silhouette & a Slow Dance

All the silly little liars lie awake inside a stone picking up the broken pieces all alike yet all alone A pocket full of secrets can only last a second chance in another burning building a silhouette and a slow dance Ships are sinking in the moonlight a yell for hope lost at sea The thunder […]
