Spectre

A spectre, floating, creeping behind
Common, familiar, but no friend
It inches purposefully forward
To block life, so to descend

So Cruel

Please… don’t break from my grip.
Senses sting… poisoned as I slip
Into toxicity of jobless causticity.
So cruel… back in this grisly cesspool

Chances

Taking ugly odds, handsome chances,
I defied doom, being quite deft,
But no longer, can’t, as I lost count
How many of my nine lives I have left

Instinct

Much quicker than thought…
It can’t be bought or taught,
As it accompanies forethought
To help sidestep the onslaught.
Instinct.

Beauty-at-work6

The focal point of all
and the hub of attention.
To her, it’s commonplace;
it’s secondhand and threadbare.
But fully expected.

Apollo Legend3

Apollo 8 mightier than all,
To leave earth for the moon;
edge-of-seat drama without flaw,
from “in the beginning” to Pacific noon

(140 characters incl. spaces)

Mired

So mired, in rubble neck deep.
So tired, in trouble, must sleep.
No rest, so to plead and connive.
I wrest to be freed, kept alive.

Beauty-at-work5

I flatter her to some degree,
and I won’t be forgotten easily;
but, she’s too cautious to let me know.
