Poetic Justice

Fluttering eyelids
on the edge of dusk.
The setting sun
coloring the grave.
Rosey pinks
in child's joy.
Musky blues
in saddened tears.
The end of a day
The end of a life.

look in the mirror

Look in the mirror
Nothin' but a brick wall
Emotions stand solid,
Then tremble and fall.
Pulling you down
faster and faster
Can't get a grip on reality
Grasping and fighting
For what you can't reach
And tripping down
and endless road

faded paint

Empty inside
the painted walls
that hold captive
the soul of creation.

Faced with
untrue truths
from all sides
from each corner

Like the
faded paint
on the surface
chipped and worn

Cracks split
Through the color
and steal the beauty
of the sky

Picture Perfect Reality

One third to the right
Two thirds down
pixel by pixel
The hem of a white gown.

In the middle
Centered in the frame
Four hands; two rings
Golden love: a burning flame

One third to the left
In the top square
A young man's smile
Beneath his curly brown hair

Thousands of pixels
of timeless love
not just on Earth
but now sealed above.


Caught in the hole
between time and space,
Knitting events
creating a lace.

A cloth soul-woven
by memories of you;
A pattern so delicate
only the knots hold true.

Each knot tied
and bound by grace.
Thinking of you
I wrap myself in lace.

Never Let Go

Never let go
and never look back.
Think of the future
hang on to the past.
Always together,
never alone.
Believe in the stars,
reach for your best.
You and me,
a cut above the rest.
Nothing to lose and nothing
to fear.

Whispers from the past
Calling out from the dust
Cries of help and hope
Tears of love and lust

God's land forsaken
Sinners revolution
Saints' souls lost
in false solution

Memories appear
As ghosts in a mist
A life now lost
and hard to resist

Laughter and Longing
Hope in a living Hell
Sinners and Saints
all have a story to tell.

A ripple in a pond
breaking a reflection
of what could be
a mirror of what isn't
a view you can't see

A pause in the wind
a beat amidst time
starring us down
with whispers of love lost
hope without sound

A shooting star

A glimmer of hope
In the night sky
Here and then gone
Without a goodbye

A chance to be seen
In but a second of light
Whizzing right by
creating a magical night

As fast as it comes
It goes again
Wishes blown out
And carried away by the wind

unkept promises

In then out
Here and there
Around, but gone
Truth in lies
Everything and nothing
Yes and no
Offer and Deny
Unkept promises...


That tomorrow will come
That the sun will rise
of that which is hard
Love those around you
No one
