Poem: Corrupted

The guilty soul fears silence, The proud heart cannot sleep, Not a smile in envy was, Ever more than just skin deep.   The bitter soul devours, Yet still he wastes away, The thankless man is blinded, Though he walks in light of day.   The stingy soul will wither, The angry heart goes mad,...

Poem: Revolutionary

I slaughter today, that one day there may be peace, I steal today, so that someday all may share. I make the greatest sacrifice, I send you to your death, I free you from oppression, put a yoke upon your neck. You must go without today, that tomorrow there may be food, Trust in me,...

Poem: Mouldy Orange

Once glory of the fruit bowl, In your youth you were the crowning jewel, But too many times passed over, Withered your rind, embittered your juice.   Bananas went before you, Apples, passionfruit and even a pear, And you were left behind, A snack unchosen, moulding in despair.   Eyes drawn to your beauty, Now...

Poem: The Siege of Devil’s Pass

Way down south a long time ago, When folks were content and life moved slow, Was a place where a cactus wouldn't dare grow, And they called it Devil's Pass.   Few people knew and even less cared, That out on that land where the ground was bare, A iron-willed family had built a house...

Poem: Little Star

In my bed I turn and stretch, exhale a slow frustrated breath, And curse my inability to sleep. Minutes and then hours tick by, as hordes of thoughts assail my mind, All clamorous but nothing very deep. I sit and yawn and check the time, five hours gone since half past nine, Look out the window... Continue Reading →

Poem: Morning Coffee

This morning I woke from pleasant dreams, To the wafting scent of roasted beans. The kettle boiled and sounded it's call, I heard the whistle from down the hall.   I put my old robe on over my trunks, To the friendly clink of coffee cups. Now, I don't mind a noisy home, But I... Continue Reading →

Poem: The River

A river flowing, rushing by, As I stood on its bank and watched, The waters rage while in my mind, One daring hope fought fears of loss.   And there around me riverside, A crowd of faces just like mine, Too jealous to enjoy our sleep, Too safe to spend our borrowed time.   But...

Poem: Eyebrow Hair Sonnet

It's been a while but now you're back, I see. Determination such as rarely found, Displayed in slender strand of ivory, Protruding once again there on my brow. What fiendish pride lurks in your keratin? So proud, you lord it over other hairs, Your fall from grace awaiting there within, I cannot take my daughter's... Continue Reading →

Poem: What on Earth?

Desperate for likes and nominal friends, Swallowing whole what the T.V. says, But never a thought for how it all ends, What on earth are we doing?   Not happy with plenty, only with more, With no idea what we are here for, As long as we’re better than the man next door, Where on...
