Chapter 3 – Where are You?

13 Sep

Summertime friend

It has been a cold winter

Without your hands

Holding mine

Walking the streets to

Pass away time

Do you play golf?

Or would you rather

Strip yourself clean

To run around

On the green

Let’s order some pizza

Read our poetry

Listen to the crickets sing

Then chase them

Round n’ round

‘til we fall on the ground

And the sprinklers come on

And so do we

Let’s drive away

To some desolate place

Watching meteor showers

Drinking wine

I would be your dreamer

If you would be mine

Chapter 2 – At the Rainbow’s End

12 Sep

The rainbow over your head

Is fading

The pot of gold

In empty

My legs are weary

My thoughts leave me

Lying low

Wondering

Wandering

My path has broken

Three roads stand before me

I only want to sleep

Tomorrow, travel the way the wind blows

Or the rail that dreams show

Give me your own sign

So that I might know

You still live in the center

Weather leaves little time

For waiting

Was it luck that your love blew

Me in the right direction

Chapter 2 – It is Done

8 Aug

Irish dancing tunes

Surround my bed,

My house, my head

We are all laughing

As the skin peels

From my face and neck

Lovers are bitter

Above me

A young man lies

Below me

Kittens sleep

Beside me

My eyes are heavy

With sleepy thoughts

My hands are yet weak

From the strain of today

In the darkness

A single demon dances

Leading me

To an open door

Number three

Still more

Number four

Number one

It is done

Chapter 2 – Seven Dreams of Death

8 Aug

Ceiling drips blood-stained secrets

Upon me

Fury rages like crematory fire

Bullet through skull

Piercing delicate brain

Pain without death

She had a bad aim

Played a worse game

Hurry! Shoot again

Before conscience comes

Before horrid shock dulls.

It was a dirty trick

Letting me live

Never knowing when she would

Pull that trigger and

Bring on the end.

Visiting my lover

Happy times I found

So close to the ground

Of my grave

I told her to shoot

Suddenly realizing he

Would never see me alive

After all this time

Rush of regret

No, don’t!

My words were slow

Like a movie of a person

With a piece of metal lodged

In her skull

Too late?

I’m gasping for dry air

Bubbles burst

The hole in my head

Bleeds red

Hair color, matted, stringy

Funny feelings

Living now

Is just not for me

Everything that happens

Simply has to be.

Chapter 2 – Folklore

4 Aug

Playing grown up games

Secretly

Without a conscience

Or a direction

To run

As destruction comes

Defiance

Persists

Resist shock waves

Of pain

To spill light again

Through the blackened eyes

And strain

Of simply being.

I have seen this vision before

Folklore

Dancing elves

And me

Singing gloomy tunes

Below them.

Chapter 2 – Remember

31 Jul

Your fingers in my hair

Your hand on my cheek

Your lips on my lips

In my dreams

I feel you breathing against me

Denial is a band-aid over my lashes

When I awake

From this dream

And remember

It’ll rip my heart out again.

Chapter 2 – In the Cemetery

27 Jul

A wounded solider watches over

Four graveless headstones

Generations of family

Buried together.

Visiting my own grave

Before I’ve died and gone away

See, the apples trees bloom

the sun still shines

In the cemetery

Where she was placed into the ground

Not long ago

Garden of marble

Interrupted by a single wooden cross

White words and a fortune lost

Perhaps a simple man

A horrid fate

Oh mother earth

Oh father time

Immortality is giving

Birth to us

Chapter 2 – Sacrifice

27 Jul

Now I lay my head to rest

My weary bones put to the test

I shut my eyes

I dream of death

Sublime and happiness.

Should it be prophecy

And come to light before

The sun has risen me –

I will not fight.

I’ll wear a smile

For those who have known me

In this life

And those I have known in the next.

And as the night surrounds me

I’ll awake from this slumber

Of suffering

And sacrifice.

Chapter 2 – The Dream Story

20 Jul

She sits

Faded green velvet chair

He stares

Through smoke filled air

The wallpaper looms

His eyes inviting

Her vision

Cloudy with drink

Spirits sent

And one white lily

More than handsome

Was this man’s beauty

And only in her dreams

He would come to her

She wouldn’t wait long

Her name he sang

A most exquisite sound

He spoke

And not in vain

With harsh determination

As in a dream

Her dream

Chapter 2 – Waiting

19 Jul

How much wasted time

Is spent on waiting

How much energy becomes

Useless, meaningless

Pacing or tapping of the fingers

What are we waiting for anyway?

A phone call

A bus

A letter

A trust

Waiting breeds apprehension

Brings chaos to bubbling minds

It is a constant reminder

Of what will be

Or could be

If only we wait

Remember your promise

To be happy

Someday?

Why wait
