Fighting

I was called away to fight and I never, Had second thoughts to endeavor, To engage an enemy that attempted, To come against us with contempt. I returned to my country only to find, That citizens within were turning blind, Fighting each other without even knowing, The goal they were reaching or where they wereContinue reading “Fighting”

Halloween

Leaves are rattling, ruffling, rustling, Beware! Beware! Hands are thwacking, thumping, thudding, Who’s there? Who’s there? Footsteps scampering, scurrying, scuttling, More tricks! More tricks! Night winds whistling, whipping, whispering, Who’s next? Who’s next? Teeth are chawing, chomping, crunching, More treats! More treats! Spirits are moping, moaning, mourning, To sleep, to sleep. Graves are quelling, quieting…Continue reading “Halloween”

Beautiful art, without a signature, Spider, Be proud of your work. Why do you hide there? Ashamed of your creation, the role you’re born to play? Do you mourn for the victims of the lies you convey?

Endlessly rendering Judgment and grudges, uttering loveless Orgies of words. Gorging on stories that are more or less Lies that are cited as wise. Their eyes always dryContinue reading “Bullied”

Rain is a Poem

Rain itself is a poem – Sounds that are rhyming, Rhythmic timing, Dark and foreboding or sweet and endearing. It can be touching and light, Or it may drench us like So many tears. Short and sweet – A cloud burst; Or it may be the worst Storm we have seen. Interpreted differently, It mayContinue reading “Rain is a Poem”

Lie

Tell me that you want me,I won’t ever ask why.Tell me that you need me,Even if it’s a lie.Be with me and hold me,If only for today.Promise me forever,Even if you go away.Tell me that I’m lovely;I don’t care if it’s true.And when I profess my love,Whisper, “I love you, too.”Tell me that my happiness,IsContinue reading “Lie”
