The war for survival has ended; body and mind claimed by destruction. My spirit drained into the sinister machinations. I became lost; my life transported into the emptiness of time. Renewal is a desire; reinvention is a dream. Rebirth is necessary to reclaim my soul.
Waking to a dimly lit sunrise Smiling at the hope of promise Day darkens quickly Shadows pummel a shaken spirit Seeking salvation in the darkness Falling towards despair Lying within the foggy evening Wishing for a moment of sleep Unable to breathe
Remembering the eulogy, on this cold and frosty morning. Mental inscriptions along the glass reflections. Those remnants held tightly are the dismal connections to unpleasant memories. Cuts and abrasions of reopened wounds that refuse to heal. Spirits returning from the old days. The mind is a broken coffin. It is difficult to let the dead … Continue reading Sarcophagus
Woke up to a cold Autumn morning; The sunrise was hours away. Sleep wanted me to stay in bed, Thoughts of the moment denied its desire. A routine that was unchanged For so many decades. Ideas to remove the insanity; Destiny is the antagonist toward my best laid plans.
Snowflakes start their fall; Barely seen. Crashes on the terrain; Never heard. Touches on the skin; We remember.
Late into the night, we waited for things to transpire. A moment to restore our faith. Sleep brought about temptation. Holding on to the hope of light, in complete darkness. This morning, the sunrise was absent of sunlight. The sky is dull and gray. "Joy comes in the morning," words spoken by the optimist. We … Continue reading Transpire
We travelled so far The path we took for happiness Wandering and losing timeWe bled for the sake of joyThe sacrifice we took for granted Wasted and trampled upon We changed within the moment The lessons filled with painWanting and fading away
Life and Death
I remember the time when I longed for death... the conversation with a loved one that started as joke. We stared at a mess she made; the overwhelming clutter of chaos and debris. Someone said she is going to kill me because I kept teasing her situation. I replied that I'm ready to die; she … Continue reading Life and Death
A moment brings us back to this place. Another sleepless night, painting thoughts on the ceiling. Sentiments resting on convenience. A touch of venom on the tongue a release of poison in the spirit. Everything and nothing is the same.
Morning light obscured by the frosted memories; time carries no sympathy for the remorse of seconds traveling within my shivering hands. I dream of sleep. Attempting to free my mind of thoughts by staring at the sunless horizon. Taunted by clichés; these menageries clouding the moment. I long for sustenance. The refrigerator is full of … Continue reading Patiently Waiting
The night consumed by silence; presence has disappeared with the days. Sleep becomes the hope; the heart absorbs what the mind could not endure. The air becomes cold and heavy upon the lungs; the pillows stained from someone's tears. Death appears in a dream; unspeakable words echoes in the darkness. The morning sun casting faint … Continue reading Haunted
Nightmares confuse my days! My body aches from the constant push of collecting demands. Yeah, some heavy shit needs to fall off my shoulders; the weight of monkeys hanging on my kindness. That feeling of suffocation, crowded by the overpopulation of intrusive minds. I offer a sacrifice for a momentary reprieve; realizing I must shake the … Continue reading Sanctuary
