Poem: Our Scar

I lack the will to keep searching Perhaps you exist somewhere out the corner of my eye Could there be another world Some other plane of existence Where you dwell so far beyond my gaze The strength to find you is gone Sapped and drained from my body Certain that you are my second half...

Poem: One Last Walk

It's been too long since we last met. May I ask that you walk with me once more? The night is not too chilly and it will keep us warm. Ahh, you have plans already. No, no, it's perfectly understandable. You have an active life. How could I begrudge you for that? I will take... Continue Reading →

Poem: Out of Place, Out of Time

I am not of this place Never has it been my home It itches at me Gnaws at my soul Ignoring what beats in my chest Chafing at these restraints Unable to act Follow my instincts I couldn’t have been a soldier Following orders Trusting they are right Too many to lay faith by My... Continue Reading →

Poem: No Respite

The tumult arises again Hate in that voice Cruelty is not uncommon Her honeyed tones have gone Deceitful and manipulative Though they are Always seeking her way Whether fair or foul means Degradation for others When wrongs are perceived Rarely in truth A inescapable rage Always just beneath Exploding to life Assaulting those without voice...

Poem: Honor

Abandoned, alone Untrue, yet the thought remains Eternally the stranger Standing apart Alien to the the outcast A mockery of man Enduring the violence of a savage Some throwback to bygone ages Infuriated with dishonor Raging against malfeasance Some distant element of myself Stifled over long years Reemerging after forced containment Longing to lash out...

Poem: Unattainable

I yearn for the implausible A love beyond reach Outsider to desires Craving a beauty that is but a dream A myth that I covet Woman of distant lands Haunting my every waking thought Drawing forth a sigh of longing Desperate for a long sought caress Love that would invite condemnation Forbidden among my people...

The Nightmare Plague: At the Crossroads

The night was soft, gentle, easily lulling people to slumber, And yet, a rumble came through the distance, The sound swelled, as a great tide before crashing into the shore, What may have been thunder took on something less welcome, That of a multitude of horsemen, all too familiar to those whose ears it touched,...
