Locked in a Cage

Deep beneath your surface
Where no one else can see
Your heart, locked in a cage
You threw away the key
I will never give up
Never…can’t you see
Relentless I will love you
Your heart, I will set free

the sea burnishes
stone to glisten in the sun
bright in your closed eyes

Tears On A Window Pane

Tears of dew drops
On the window pane
The sleep’s night
Fulfills a promise
My dreams take me
To where you are
Only the morning whispers
Silences your breath
As stirs of life
Awaken my heavy heart
To another day without you

Hollow hearts

Hollow hearts lie fallow beating. Foreign to truth’s octaves & peace’s justice. Their decapitated arms unable to embrace “other”. Hollow hearts follow blindly.

Impugned

My skull feels twisted
Upside down behind the skin
Brain aquiver and bombinating
Mulling over the night’s events
One step forward and
Fifty years back
Impugned

For a Moment or So

Winds change their direction
Thoughts now entirely rest and depend upon intentions
It’s a way of life
It’s a part of life
It’s there in life
Temptation
It remains there for a moment or so
However, it makes it’s presence felt
Always.
