Silent

October 30, 2014

Sitting in silent serenity
Forgetting your fears finally
Making peace
With the world around
Being mute can be profound

Return

October 29, 2014

Welcome back to your home
We have been expecting you
To always return

Strife

October 28, 2014

Remember that day
We danced the night away?
Remember that time
You got lost in our crime?

Remember that year
We felt no fear?
Remember the past
How it’ll always last?

Remember my name
It’s always the same?
Remember in life
To never feel strife.

Alcoholism

October 27, 2014

Half a world away
I stumbled into
An old brew-hall
Covered in neon signs
In some foreign language
And lo and behold
At the bar
With his dusty boots
Upon the brass rail
Sat my oldest friend
I walked up
And grabbed a stool
Next to him,
The bar-stool Prophet
Before I could order
My usual pint
He turned to me
Smiled and said:
“I’ve been on the road
More years than you’ve
Been a being,
The only constant
I’ve found
From here
To Kalamazoo
Is watering holes
full of me and
My brothers”

Kisses

October 26, 2014

Kiss in circles
Round and round
Kiss on up
Then back down
Kiss slowly
Never too fast
Kiss her deeply
The love will last

Charlene

Caress me gently
Help me to grow
Always there
Reliable
Loving deeply
Every night
Never slowing
Even a fright

Embers

October 24, 2014

Baby it’s cold in here
Our fire must be burnt out
But embers remain
