Only Words

I hear the words
The phrases
Every day more
Words we all know
Of caring
Compassion
Of sanity
Yet we remain
Insane
No one is listening

Living On The Surface

surface

 

How much was my deposit?
My life a week older
How better off am I?
As I get older

What are the means?
Of living here
When what I give
Causes more fear

I am tired now
Please let me rest
Give a little time now
I will be my best

I finally see now
What it all means
Spending a lifetime
For others means.

Stoic

 

 

Beauty

VNV_Nation__doll_face__Andrew_Huang

 

Images abound
An attempt to go
Where love is lost
No words resound

Trying to hold
The unreachable
No words remain
No lasting sound

Tainted images
Bodies of wonder
For a moment
But never found

Watching pictures
When all around
We ignore
Beauty that abounds

Stoic.

The Fire

slide-fire

The furnace of anger rages
Written upon pages
To another’s heart
We rend apart

On the morrow we see
Demons we set free
To hurt and diminish
A love finished

No path back can repair
Words so unfair
So much sorrow
Ours for tomorrow

Stoic

I have travelled with a map
I became lost in this sea
Where charts failed
Floundering

Sailing into unknown waters
Adrift upon the tides

I learned of unknown lands
I found shores never seen
Where tales were born
Resounding

Sailing, the back broken
I now reside

I visited and left
I found no solace
Where legends promised
Fists pounding

Sailing berthed for now.

Stoic

 

 

 

 

Commonality

Commonality

A single flaw
Promises made
Mistakes made
Believed, over and over

For a lifetime
Forfeiting
One for another

There is no grace
When sacrifices made
Fail

Reflections in dark mirrors
Pasts holds no virtue
Steps fall in silent halls

No one knows anyone
Yet we try
Taking, always taking

When alone
We finally see
That we walk alone

Stoic
