week 422 ~ far flung dreams

me-422far flung dreams
hang by a thread
it truly seems
far flung dreams
ripped at the seams
implode instead
far flung dreams
hang by a thread

week 379 ~ the timid change stripes so quickly

with 2 comments

me.379the timid change stripes so quickly
as if in reaction to what
seems too good to be theirs a gut
feeling that unexpectedly
bounces hard when dropped certainty
is in short supply and bad days
circle back bite the hand that stays
outstretched so curl up in a ball
blast through denial block recall
don’t ask why there can’t be always

week 377 ~ tension spring-loaded

with 2 comments

me.376tension spring-loaded
on a hair trigger
today’s imploded
tension spring-loaded
the game’s mis-coded
the stakes get bigger
tension spring-loaded
on a hair trigger

week 349 ~ pack up all your dreams

leave a comment »

me.349pack up all your dreams
for what will be will
look the future gleams
pack up all your dreams
harder than it seems
banishing fears still
pack up all your dreams
for what will be will

week 337 ~ no miracle awaits here

with 2 comments

me.337no miracle awaits here
nor will fervent dreams come true
now exactly as we fear
there is nothing we can do

 nor will fervent dreams come true
much as we would wish it so
there is nothing we can do
there’s just reasons why to know

much as we would wish it so
we can’t step in front of fate
there’s just reasons why to know
would have should have running late

we can’t step in front of fate
now exactly as we fear
would have should have running late
no miracle awaits here

week 311 ~ sometimes I wonder

with 8 comments

me.311sometimes I wonder
if I stop fighting
will I go under

dreams rent asunder
wildfires igniting
sometimes I wonder

is strength a blunder
false landfall sighting
will I go under

does distant thunder
shadow false lightning
sometimes I wonder

what is this hunger
for truth inciting
will I go under

all said and done sir
past sins alighting
sometimes I wonder
will I go under

week 236 ~ anarchists or enemies

with 3 comments

me.236anarchists or enemies
bombs in the streets of Boston
terror on a sudden breeze
anarchists or enemies
a peaceful afternoon flees
the chaos can’t be undone
anarchists or enemies
bombs in the streets of Boston

week 95 ~ I must begin again

with 86 comments

I must begin again
working against my fear
in spite of our bargain
there’s no way back from here

working against my fear
it feels like a nightmare
there’s no way back from here
I wonder if I care

it feels like a nightmare
I don’t know what to do
I wonder if I care
what will become of you

I don’t know what to do
to set the future free
what will become of you
if I choose honesty

to set the future free
in spite of our bargain
if I choose honesty
I must begin again
