a word with you...


walk eyes into the distance

dance a breath through trees

love and leave me flailing along

painting feet which cross a burdened sidewalk.....one meeting street...

blurry, bored, sad, and torn

this walk has its own talk......tread and gawk into a starving distance.....step on me....step off then tread my head...but...please, lets continue to dance at it......

blank with this air above...it stares at both of me, big and down...upon my head

the one i draw on dark walls....and soak in its love...springing birth, and spending death tokens...after it all...what is left?

stir and lend an ear........this sound brings us all in......we surround and blend

take a look and wipe each eye....away, blink and spend your lashes wisely

for each mistake ive made my feelings feel like less or maybe feel as more..

blood darkens our days, clouds walk shelves....pages of importance test ourselves...sift through it and find melody, my dear, troubled son...so far you have been lost...........so far you have yet to become....

i break....


 A dark tunnel in....a dark tunnel out..

Grim vision of broken landscapes just crave a new beginning.......one where we all fit in..........luck of this is less than good...

Life has become....a waltz with death's border, nothing more...obvious....it may seem...but we all pinched the sky in wanting....claiming control...

Our tongues touch the veins of trees and sip syrup, bloody with remorse

A tasteful god would guide, but when questions mount him, he thins and licks fragile skin....begging for salt, earth, or worse..........temptation....

Eyes burn while steeples sear gentle and un-wanting skies......will you bury me?  Is this true fear?

The love for vision has me starry eyed and blending rays.....I cant complete these moments and continue to grip...stars, moon, sun, and tears...which fold when I call out to them...where am I, who do I love, what is next.......curtains call the dark........a blanket........sending my day away...........goodbye.

my green eyes went black as they met the sun for too long

burnt and begun

beginning to bare

peeling away tore into me

I had a grip of love on something I knew was leaving me behind

ticks of winding down clocks

built into my heart's rhythm

balance fell below and broke the scales measure

drops of rain and the splash of life that they leave became my humble irony

I beat...I blend, I melt....

standing alone in the bright wisdom of this earth...I feel chopped off and lonely when I place my bookmark inside difficult pages...the ones calling past my sight...waiting for the big man inside my life...to tough it and take me through....

im a branch, severed with time

dark, gangly, buried with last breaths

I have leaves and seeds, to grow...its just about time...and letting the clocks tick within me...
