Gracefully 


I’ve lost my mind

Or so I have been told

Tends to come

With getting old.

But I feel alright

Until my tongue gets out

Then my eyes shift

And I start to doubt.

Oh I keep things straight

Except the hairs on my head

But they lay down

Once I hit the bed.

I’m not crazy

But I’m not sane

I’m just goofy 

With a walking cane.

The Joker

The Joker

I walk in a dimension
There are truths
Dressed in stories
Of the liars den.
I walk carefully
To not wake curiosity
In me
Or in anything.
Whispers taunt
Like wasps circle
No Trust
But fear.
The joker laughs
As the fool trips
On the truth of the ledge
And the romance of the fall.

Pain and Life


Not being needed

Might be what hurts the most

Value lost

Or never coming close.

Two steps behind

Or never being right 

Failing the battle 

No matter how hard you fight.

Losing yourself 

Or not knowing who you are

Experience missing

Never being a star.

Letting people down 

While you continue your fall

Not seeing the light 

Or end at all.

Until one day

The present becomes the past

And the thankful heart

Proves pain didn’t last.

A Little Peace

Daffodils

Many of Man
When taking dying breath
Understand the mistakes of past

Time knows no mercy
As the minutes dry
Chances have reached their last.

Clearing a life early
Needless anger and pain
Leaves open wounds still

War of the heart
Cloud of stubbornness
Opportunity loses its will.

No perfect players
In any game
No absolute right and wrong.

Clearer thoughts come
A true objective
Prevents misery lasting too long.

Spreading of politics
And needless hate
Social media pushes the will…

And while some are lost
Peace in the heart is abound
While drawing my daffodils.

Muse


The muse unaware

Why I write 

The subject suggestive

With what words I type.

Holding back often

In the tales told

No point in revealing 

Or assuming a hold.

Letting go as needed

More turning away

Neglecting facts

Watching what to say.

But the words are read

When I choose to share

No reply ever given

Or feelings declared.

Peaking in the distance

Sharing even less

Exposed in the brevity 

With less to confess.
