broken dreams

the wind whispered stories

and drew me from my cave

to the jagged shorelines of your ocean

of my grave

waves of grief and disbelief

lap gently at my feet

only to recede and reveal

a bed of broken dreams

About these ads

i am the earth

the blur that is, that was,

the feeling of a lifetime

has been crushed

and battered,

beaten and bruised.

being told you have to choose

win or loose,

to tie your own noose

no.

no.

no.

i will not,

CANNOT

be told that i am anything less or more

then the person who i was born to be!

i am the sky

i am the earth

for all it is

and for all it is worth!

i will show you

and you will learn

to breath free

to sleep easy

to live!

as you were meant

to be


Untitled

an eternity has

gone by

and

i

have died


nonchalant looks

the reading of books

and nonchalant looks

has got me up on edge

how do i let

my true colours flow

when i am nothing

but the universe

which is only everything i know

how can i make do

with the unjust

and bias based views

of powers that i know to be true.

i am blind

i am weak

i am a child of unknown beliefs


save me

sitting in the dark

waiting for the sun

that will never come

dreams turn to sand

slipping through your hands

the wind wiping wildly

through your long and unkempt hair

naked as a baby

dressed and gone to war

please somebody save me

from the shadows

outside my door


yourself

confess yourself

undress yourself

to your bones

reveal your soul

to yourself

you need to know

who you are

before you can help

anyone else


undisturbed: dreaming

come to me easy

as i lay down tonight

make peace in my mind

as i sleep tonight

whether in a bed or on the streets

in a prison cot

or cold dirt floor

sleep will always cleanse the soul

and until sunrise

let me sleep in peace

undisturbed

dreaming

bliss

come to me easy

as i lay down tonight


reality

harsh

stunning

relentless

cunning

thirsty

unforgiving

melancholy

just another

brick in the wall;

reality check


lesson learned

how am i supposed to learn my lesson

when i know not what i am being taught

do i sit here and listen

pretend?

or do i question

where others fear to do so


stone throw

a stone’s throw away

it seems so close

but as the stone flies

so does your target

you can never seem to be quite there

at quite the right time


Facade

a favorite place of mine

the boy went out

to find his home

the dog set out

to find his bones

mother wept

for just awhile

father came home

passed out on the floor

slept in his clothes

he was gone before morn

a favorite place of mine

was always under the covers

i feel so safe

from outside bothers

i clench my eyes closed shut

in hopes that when i open them

love will be there


Stranger

Stranger to me

Stranger to you

When life means nothing

Are you really living

When you live to die

And love has no virtue

Are you alive

When death does not phase you

And the name Hades does not strike fear into your heart

Have you a soul

Neither sun nor moon

Or burning wound

You are a still a stranger to me

And I am a stranger to you


Is God for me?

God

What is God

Is God enough to save a soul

Damned to hell

Is God love

Is God the night sky

Or the dull light of dawn

As days go past

And time grows old

Does God sit upon a golden throne

Is God for everyone

Is God for me

I don’t think so

So don’t try to make me believe


Somewhere In Between

Between the Trees and

the Locust cries

You can hear the soft

moan of the Summer breeze

You ruffled my leaves

and I began to cry

the saplings will

All wither and Die

I was somewhere in between

two towering elder trees

I was overwhelmed

Opportunity ripped out from my arms

I went down to the creek

and took a Deep draw,

I rose to my feet and

Spread my limbs wide

and for the first time

I opened my Eyes.


Music Man

the music man plays his dream

with each blow of his horn

and strum of his strings

he plays for happiness and joy

the music man who plays for profits alone

is no music man at all

but a businessman

a man who does not see the light

the music man pities the businessman

for he will never know

and the music man will know all


I Feel Lonely

i feel lonely

at this train-stop i must wait

there is paper blowing in the wind

my only company is a paper cup

strange….it is whiter then a pearl

and onto the iron i will step

because i feel lonely


Songbird

why does the songbird sing?

it sings for love.

it sings for peace.

it sings for hope.

why does the song bird weep?

it weeps for hate.

it weeps for viloence.

it weeps for judgment.

why does the songbird fly away?

it flies away because you make the songbird weep.


care free days

give me back my innocence

my freedom

my care free days

take the weight of the world from my aching shoulders

and cast it away

i am anchored down by tangible things

my mind in the chains of society

i long to break free!

to shatter the shackles that suppress my thoughts and actions

give me back my life
