week 360 ~ the orange guitar lies abandonado

with 2 comments

me.360the orange guitar lies abandonado
as the last light of evening filters through
like sunset across the water ask who
will play it now in the twilight or go
to the window call back time fleeting
we have never really said we’re sorry
we stopped believing in possibility
in paths not taken instead repeating
the comfortable it’s easy to hide
from what could be from what was always here
but grab a flashlight a candle and peer
in perhaps your patient muse will decide
to reconvene all the choices waiting
for misplaced dreams to finally wake and sing

week 316 ~ I feel naked in front of the mirror

with 2 comments

me.316I feel naked in front of the mirror
of truth what exactly am I looking
for what more could I expect do I fear
exposure commitment what should I bring
to the table do I still have cards to
play as I stare down the void double check
the map the clock the appointment where do
I line up who’s waiting to stack the deck
in the dark as the world begins to spin
out from under my feet I jump something
catches my parachute the silent din
of waiting words which one the golden ring
I sit up drink in hand searching for rhymes
the damn muse just slaps you around sometimes

thanks to my friend Alec for the last line.
