The Dogs Of War

giphy

 

Release the dogs of war

Literary beasts, teeth rending

The fabric of personal realities

Digested too long, spew forth.

 

Primal vicissitudes evolved

Transformed by perception, and time

Unleashed, set forth to feed upon

Ravenous souls bereft of direction.

 

Purpose guide my pens blade

Slash life upon this virgin page

Blood stained truth covering

The lies and banalities of this world.

 

Stoic

 

 

Healing

A sigh revealed

Too long covered

Virtue and sin

Melded to one

Earth and sky

Taste of life

And knowing is

The return of love

 

 

Tick Tock

The rhythm to the rhyme

Music of life beyond time

Beat by beat life still goes

In a rhythmic stream it flows

 

Step by step, day to day

A pendulum swings away

Back and forth, to and fro

All must come and go

 

Yet close enough for all to see

Me to you, and you to me

Today is today, tomorrow too

Only ticks and tocks, me and you
