In The Details

All that distracts
Candles and wine
And wasting time
Fashion and more
Love and deplore

Lost in the details
In ear’s it rings
Of made up things
The joy it will buy
A beautiful lie

Dream

grave-dream.jpg

Did I die that night
Beneath accidental stars
To faded sounds of the city

When my eyes closed
And I was sure

Is this the result
Of a dream
Now real

Or is this life,
And that ending
Just a dream

Stoic

Walk

20190215_144917

It is cold
I am cold
In more ways than one

A world pulls
Take the bait
In shade without a sun

“Pain is real”
I tell myself
Yet I am still here

So I walk
Each little step
And every tear

Life up close
A narrow lens
A world within a world

Belies a truth
I have known
Forgive this life and unfurl

Stoic.

 

Through The Years

In time all things fall
Insanity softens to understanding
It was not that, ever
Simply a Truth, beyond its time

Embraced, reconciled
Never apart, but finally accepted
Maybe known before its time
I was, am, that I always was

Now to feel more, and think less
Silence is no longer boredom
It never was, yet was unheeded
I am finally enjoying the play
And I applaud

Stoic.

 

I AM

Across worlds, a blink
Child to man, a breath
A product of what I think

And there is tenderness
Sometimes quite enough
Often falling from the caress

Never leaving, nor arriving
I am here in this moment
I am here, always, loving

I AM

Stoic

Storms knife edge
Slicing into being
Cutting deep
Calloused scars open

Healing yet again
Heart still beating
Never doubtful
Never fall
