Sunday Mornings

It’s 5:30 in the morning
Too early to be awake today so far
Darkness still swirling
Groggy feeling impaired
As the shadows continue to dance on the walls

Toss and turning in circles
Limbs flying every which way
Making music that no one can hear

Winds deadly howl darkens the way
As each branch snaps impaling the air
It’s not enough to stop the derailing dreams
Falling circles of dresses twirling around
More shadows they seem to add on the wall

In all the chaos ensuring demise
Hundreds of dreams came and go
Still they go on and on

Shadows sweeping criss-crossing the rooms
Sun glowing deeply as it’s time to hide
Morning is coming
As those dreams start to fade for the sky
Screaming softly that no one can hear

Desolations

The silence that hasn’t spilled from fingers pricked
Hesitant over lettered buttons
Waiting…

Words squished between the nothings
Forced into hiding
Yearning…

A trickle of a drop within a hint
Bashed with the skull
Smoldering…

Raging ash flaring unending upwards
Fluttering amongst the openings
Flowing…

Quiet falls all around the bareness witnessed
Flames frozen in dances of a trance
Stillness…

And then it hits you head on
The entrapping bittersweet
Echoing…

Accepting the emptiness of a barren sky
The nothingness from within
Pondering…

Words most useless now come forth to be used
Not long to be hidden
Begging…

The world has changed it’s views to see
Forced upon the differences
Resolutions…

The mind once full of lively amazement
Enormous fields of thoughts
Desolate…

Death’s Hammer

The clicking and clacking at odd hours
Enough to drive anyone mad
But he didn’t have walls in between
All he had was a few feet

The clacking and clicking all night long
Is enough to drive any sane man around
Able to drive them away from normalness
Into the darkness that awaits their souls

Clicking of keys and clacking of hammers
It digs deep with each strike
Eating away at every last straw remaining
Slowly devouring everything that was

Clacks of smacks with quick clicks
How these fingers drive me away
Slowly slip into the places beyond
Away from normal thinking and feeling

I sit there smashing fingers to keys
As the hammer rips through the ribbon

In Blink’s Of Eyes

In blink’s of eyes, life passes by
In blink’s of eyes, life quickly dies
In moments past, yet to come
Living days, one to one
New lives come, old ones leave
Quicker than changing leafs

Setting sun on last days run
Lonely breath is all that’s left
As the body slowly gives up

Life moves one with memories remain
And moments lost never regained
Nor future ones be shared
From blink’s of eyes
To eternal stares

Of little moments not to share
A watchful knowing is always there
As life grows on in little smiles
Pictures past will show her why
With past and future meeting again
In only photos years begin

Neither man nor wife will ever meet
Nor see the future with disbelief
A single child with eyes wide
Only moments was captured by
Within those moments of smiles and eyes
Generations crossing paths

With past now gone, and future wide
Memories keep them alive
In few pictures that do survive
They’ll know the ones by their sides
Stories told each every night
To keep their memories alive
Now long gone from blink’s of eyes

Letting Go

Could it really be?
After months, years hidden away?
Could I be ready this time?
To open once more to pain and sorrows?

For I sit in the shadows
Night into day
They’re always aware
Ready to twist dreams to nightmares

Hearts on the table
Too much pain to let it stay
Removed it last fall
At the turning of days

The pain was destructive
The cold of little comfort
Snow where I bled
Trailed to my bed

Lost in the world
Devoted to the job
Personal life sacrificed
Now to remove memories

Each night I sleep
Coin tossed in air
Dreamless or nightmares
Were all I did know

Hidden away from the dawn of new days
I stare at my screen watching it bleed
Fill it with life that was taken that night

After all this time
Could I be ready once more?
Should I open that door?

Fear grips my mind
Try to realize
What’s best to be done
Is there no where I can run?

Sit most nights a tear in my eye
That refuses to leave
Just hangs there
Like a forgotten memory

How can one tell its right?
That time has quelled
Enough flaws and holes
To be worthy to be whole

When does that sweet sigh come
To let you know you’ll be whole
To not worry about an end
But to wonder whats around the bend

Where’s my sign?
Is it in clouds of sky
Or hidden inside?
Will I know when I see it
Or just pass it by
As oft time before?

How can one know scars unseen
Placed deep inside their bring
Have healed enough
To be put back in another’s hands?

How do you know
When you’re ready
To let go?

Do you just let go
Jump straight in the flow
No safety nets abound
All lifelines cleared

When does the soul realize
It’s ready to begin again?
