SILHOUETTED SOUL

SILHOUETTED SOUL

The convolutions

Of the silhouetted soul

Halted me in my tracks

******************

As my eyes traced the edges

Of one no longer whole

Cut short as if by axe

******************

Where is the merriment

Of days gone by

Where was the love at the end

******************

This parallax before me

Did I behold

A tragedy in the wind

NEW BEGINNINGS

NEW BEGINNINGS

Gripped by the strength

Of an unseen hand

I was lead to freedom

In the promised land

******************

My heart filled with joy

At the sight in the mirror

A smile I thought lost

Forever is clearer

******************

With goosebumps on skin

As I ready myself

For the hand of another

And nobody else

******************

Vows to be taken

Spoken from the heart

Blessed by our God

And a brand-new start

SHADOWBOX

There is a shadowbox inside of me

One not meant for others to see

Sometimes it is filled with pain or dread

When times are troubled inside my head

*********************************

Other times it’s filled with hope, love and glee

The sunnier, shinier side of me

Regardless, it’s there firmly in place

Keeping a watchful frame ’round my grace

*********************************

THE REBEL

The rebel fights to be set free
To pillage and trash and burn
Destroying the life with simplicity
Disregarding the good we learn

****************
If given the chance he will prevail
Leaving a trail of tears
Bottled up inside
How long can we hide
From the rebel who feeds in our fears

A QUEEN’S CONSORT… a poem

Image Credit

The parallax pomposity

Of an overly anxious man.

A cantilevered view

Through a spyglass made of sand.

Self-aware, in stalwart effort,

His reflection did he admire.

Until put to death…

By executioners hand…

As ordered by the Sire.
