Fool’s Kingdom

I am frequently fool: Folly of fearful affection, Fading fast behind a closed door With key in hand- My own hand. Unseen, Untouched, Craving to be held, But afraid to be found, Figured out, As failure, freak, fanatic fool. I am boy grown man, Growing old, going grey- Recedingly so- And all in the blinkContinue reading “Fool’s Kingdom”

The War Of the Worlds

How did it feel to hang By nails And wait for a death You were born to endure? Created by The Father As a symbol Of His power To save A crumbling humanity. He gave you life For it to be ripped from your body. No saving grace for you, No end to the pain,Continue reading “The War Of the Worlds”

NOTRE LIT

  Missing your smoky strains And longing for everything to be like those Sometimes hazy, Sometimes crystal clear Memories I made in you While you floated along, Untouched and unfazed, By that crazy mixture Of bureaucracy and chaos That was as deep rooted in you As the pride was in your citizens- Or what theContinue reading “NOTRE LIT”

Remembrances along the roadside

  That day- do you remember? In the car, me- racing away And you- running, Me- crying, and you- waving. Do you remember? He was inside- watching, brewing, stewing. Unable to say what it was that he wanted, Unable to stop what he had from escaping. We were outside- turned inside out, Silenced to theContinue reading “Remembrances along the roadside”

Italian Thoughts

  You washed over me today- Darkest hair, hazel of eyes And that lower luscious lip- As I retraced those steps From a lifetime ago And found myself Lost again- Like all those years ago- When I’d first fallen Upon this Sea of a City, Back when your heart Had begun to feel More likeContinue reading “Italian Thoughts”

Adapted to Adoption

  Removed from you, I hear your words more clearly. You failed to understand me, You neglected to comprehend my lack of questions For the one from whose tribulations I was born. What understanding could I have of myself- When I failed to understand who I am? And yet- my love removed- see this: SeeContinue reading “Adapted to Adoption”

Thierry’s Line

  One ordinary, Rather hot summer night- Nothing special, nothing different- In my mind’s eye I ran my finger down the line of hair That ran from your chest Before it disappeared beneath your shorts As the breeze blew open your shirt and I caught the smile in your eye As you read my thoughts.Continue reading “Thierry’s Line”

The Evaporation of the Earth

  I am on a plane, again, Flying over your gardens of green And heavenly mountains- Looking more like hollow hills from here, It appears we are chasing The last light of day As East leaves West Before finally we are pitched Into an abyss of blackness As the world disappears And I wonder IfContinue reading “The Evaporation of the Earth”

We Never Saw Forever

  No more sorrys, No more words No more time. No more pretending That this is working Our days are gone. No more waiting For those calls That seldom came. No more arms Wrapped around me While I sleep. No more breath Upon my shoulder As I dream. No more questions For our future WeContinue reading “We Never Saw Forever”

Thank you, Nana

We carried you, Like a child, that day As Spring shone around us And the flowers took bloom And I wondered if April Had ever seen so soft a day? We carried you, Like a child, that day And traced each and every journey We’d made with you along the way, On busses and trainsContinue reading “Thank you, Nana”
