What is poetry to the artistically challenged? Words and rhymes on a page, set to a metre obliquely defined. Those with empty plates need not the epiphanic call. Those with shuttered eyes feel just as strongly or not at all. But poetry doesn’t qualify with definitions. It drives from wordsworth’s […]

For my Grandmother

Glistening strings danced along the deepest fibers of my being They lapped and lounged, filled my bounds and wound up in my needs   But now the threads, whom I had always dread are cut through right and quick I flit and float, on an anchorless boat wishing life wasn’t […]

For my Stepfather

There comes a time- Between yours and mine When we reach for all the branches   When your limb was missed Throughout fates dreary kiss Nobody grew quite frantic   For you’re a father Without all the bother Who took nothing quite for granted   And now a card, without […]

Differences

That voice on my brow which carries me through Stretches along my anachronistic mind Breaches through the softest cries and changes what was blue   Family and friends, they cannot carry– This weakness found within But experience grins when the veil becomes thin and all the world is merry  

Open to the Air

The Gnomic Father Pt. 5

It’s time we talked, of who we are No, not skin and voice, not money nor choices It’s about your soul, about your poisons You need to find yourself, find your guiding star   There comes a time, when you’re in a place You’ll know it well by how it […]

What you make of it.

What do I find myself to be Called upon with expectations, requirements of another world Finding fault that lies not inside but within the eyes of others Staring, thinking, breathing my soul out as if I were a puppet Why do you think I am this machine? Why are you […]

Wherein I find it

Call from your deep below Let it fall away Strike the truest blow   I never dipped a toe They knew to enter the fray Call from your deep below   The mountainous walk is ever slow It follows with the morning grey Strike the truest blow   Say the […]
