week 474 ~ the most important thing is peace

leave a comment »

the most important thing is peace
of mind the kind that leads to sleep
at night where promises will keep
and you can let yourself release
control convince your brain to cease
obsessing trust in the moment
without asking where the dream went
knowing life’s still as it should be
where you left it close your eyes see
you’ve just paused waiting for intent

week 473 ~ as life swirls around I reach out

leave a comment »

as life swirls around I reach out
snatch blindly through the empty air
not sure what I hope to find there
or why I’m here and looking shout
and the words bounce back full of doubt
neither brave nor foolish I start
off no certainty in my heart
hoping action confers purpose
the path abandoned treacherous
this story heads for its next part

week 472 ~ once upon a blameless fear

leave a comment »

once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real
when the future looms unclear
once upon a blameless fear
we hold tight to all that’s dear
wait for someone else’s deal
once upon a blameless fear
when the worst could still be real

week 471 ~ more behind than ahead

leave a comment »

more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint
sunset bleeds river red
more behind than ahead
no option here instead
music in counterpoint
more behind than ahead
drifting past midpoint

week 470 ~ aorta cut pain spurting

with 2 comments

aorta cut pain spurting
is this my happy way home
look up blank stare truth blurting
aorta cut pain spurting
no process for what’s hurting
fragile lies come packed in foam
aorta cut pain spurting
is this my happy way home

week 469 ~ perhaps I have been misreading the signs

with 2 comments

perhaps I have been misreading the signs
moving too hastily to conclusions
based on circumstances facts anyone’s
guess this mess of misdirection combines
paranoia and anger in a froth
of unknown duration much like whipped cream
that only lasts so long or a bad dream
or a candle that beckons a drunk moth
I flutter helplessly hooked soon to be
burned ripped hopes ride the rage out of my mouth
and I so long to hop a nightmare south
away from this truth or controversy
don’t think don’t talk but remember to breathe
you’ll ride out love’s storm like any disease

week 468 ~ I wish I truly felt that way

with 2 comments

I wish I truly felt that way
it would be so much easier
to sleep at night to dream infer
peace from silence ignore decay
be hopeful keep the dark at bay
hold onto evening visualize
what never despite many tries
becomes in the end actual
though nothing’s inevitable
there’s sorrow when I close my eyes
