BOUND… a poem

silver pen on white paper

Hosts of pages litter the floor

Crumpled little dreams tossed by the wayside

Imagination sees while translations lack the fortitude

Where is the elusive muse

Who can coax nimble fingers

Into releasing these bound tales?

INFINITE LOOPS… a poem of thought

Twisting through the infinite loops

Inside my brain

I find there are no boundaries

If there are indeed no boundaries

Then perhaps that explains a lot

It explains why, sometimes, I cannot find what I’m searching for

Why my creativity is lackluster

Why I cannot write

Or paint

Or whatever

On the plus side of this quandary

Infinite loops will, by definition,

Come back around

At least, I hope so

STATE OF INEPTITUDE… a poem

man in blue t-shirt and blue denim shorts sitting on concrete stairs during daytime

The haze obscuring my reticence

Condemns my heart to speak

Longing for a time unknown

Tumbling from its peak

Surrounded by the inhumane stupor

As far apart as we can be

Guilt laces my veins within

Incomprehensibly choking me

WINGS… a poem of faith

red rose flower by gray concrete brick wall at daytime

There will always be tears

Of joy and of pain

You will always be here

In our souls you’ll remain

Your smile is a memory

Time can’t take away

We now walk alone

Since Jesus called your name

Our hearts are so full

Of the love that you gave

You are now everlasting

In the promise He made

In this we take comfort

Knowing we’ll see you again

The day we get our wings

And forever begins

MY HAUNTING… a dark poem

black bird perching on brown branch

In the struggle of my life

I forgot to say I love you

In the struggle of my life

I forgot to goodbye

Everyone around me

Every voice inside my head

Every single time I speak

There is nothing but a cry…

——–

Lost in separation

By this madness that engulfs me

Lost in separation

When I catch a stranger’s eye

Caught between the here and there

Forgetting how to breathe

In this, a living nightmare

Am I forsaken by and by

———

Indiscreetly, I loosed my grip

Soured by inadequacy

Indiscreetly, I loosed my hold

As the shadows over through me

For consolation, there is nigh

Broken soul like dried up bones

A final kiss I was denied

This shallow grave my home

DO NOT GIVE UP… a thought

man looking up holding his hair

In the forefront of my mind

Where dreams are but fading shadows

Too quickly forgotten

Along with the feelings they momentarily held

I find myself scouring the depths of my memories

Hoping, praying to find the solace therein

That small slice of time that I know

Deep in my heart

I can never recapture

But, I do not give up hope

I’LL BE OKAY… a poem

man standing on wooden chair

One step, two step

Falling back three

This ever changing landscape

Is getting the best of me

Just when it seems

I’ve broken through

Into a better place

The cruelty of reality

Slaps me in the face

But, that’s alright

I’ll trudge along

Tomorrow’s another day

And if this is the worse thing

That happens to me

I think I’ll be okay

FLOWERS… a poem

green and white flower garden

The flowers are so pretty

But the scenery is blue

Tell me, how did I get here

Was there nothing I could do

I did my best to love

And tried to do all that I could

For those who needed more than me

I hope they understood

Now, looking down upon the petals

Red, white and azure blue

I only wish I had more time

Before my life was through
