appreciation, beauty, death, deep, freedom, growth, nature,
The grove within the forest leads to a river,
Where sings the frogs, dragonflies, and birds
And there they die away, quietly, welcomed by their young
Decomposing in the ground, their smells lost within others
The lily, drenched in dew, dries slowly in the sun
Near the water, soft, sweet-scented, true
She dries more and more, till dawn gifts her gloss
And again, she has beyond what she needs
Dripping, crying, the darkness cannot consume her elegance
Even in dying days, she shrivels with eternal fragrance
conflict, courage, grief, growth, strength,
Like a stubbed Toe
Uncontrollably and sometimes close to a
Devastating fear of permanent failure
Until we accept
Until we accept
And grin for the favor
Of the full torture of
Again, and again...
grief, growing up, growth, how i feel, truth, wisdom,
All hope is lost, for fairytales
Happy endings are only fiction
High pitched whistles drown the bells
Only fools waste pennies, wishing
Dreams were big when we were small
Til we dose do’ed and swapped
Now we’re wise and know it all
The magic, abruptly, stopped
We began an early green
Then a striking red
It seems so very mean
How, gold will leave us dead
death, growth, life, nature, ocean,
Slow and unfazed, oblivious to all,
He came from out of the blue,
Gaining power to point in the path of our life,
His passion and mania grew,
Summoning whoever marched by his side,
Together growing big, growing proud,
Together becoming more an unstoppable force,
Unhindered by feet on the ground,
Then all of his strength rose up from a thought,
A perfect silhouette, perfect curve,
And with all of his might he cracked open his voice,
The most beautiful roar to be heard,
As he attacked with one glorious increment of fear,
He lifted his mountains, his tons,
Just to die all alone with millions of friends,
His million small beautiful doves.

Give me drink, rest, and solitude—
these are all the things I long for;
give me as well your finest food,
and I'll ask of you, lass, no more!
My lovely lass, what's the matter—
why are you all down and alone?
Don't be vexed because you're sadder
than most, dear, for God loves His own.
Sweet girl, I'll tell you a secret:
if I were a young lad again,
I'd chase you for your sweet asset.
But as I am two-score and ten
years old (with wife in deed), never
can I be your white knight with steed;
but your sadness won't last forever,
if you pray for the one you need.

beauty, bird, death, growth, spiritual, sunset, time,
dusk’s curtain ends
a bird’s melody
what of your legacy
tick tock amends
near the sum of days
are you still in old ways
for what transcends
your last setting sun
have you left it undone

A life negative—
No person’s immune from this.
Fight back hard always . . .
No fear—be courageous now . . .
And never ever give up!

William J. Jr. Atfield
An adventure begins – a seed plummeted into a liquid pool.
A ripple arises – waves increase, they continue to expand.
They gain girth – they run across the crystalline surface of time.
They absorb much – their journey begins to wane.
They touch the shore – dissipate and are no more.

death, education, growth, heaven, life, soulmate,
Life is less about having or being,
And more about becoming.
Likewise, it is less about knowing
And more about learning…
At least until you’re dead.
The difference between who you are today
And who you were yesterday
Are the friends you’ve made
And the books you’ve read…
This is the true way to ‘get ahead’.
If there exists a post-mortal afterlife,
I hope you’ll share it with a husband or wife.
So if you hope you’ll be with him or her,
Start now and treat that person better—
Why wait until you’re dead?!
birth, blessing, death, growth, nature,
A Winter's Dawn
Along the way
To make of hills
Whose shadows fall
Amidst the mist,
and arbor limbs,
In valley's Low
In such a light
A willow grows
And as if an empty room
Had found music
It returned a new light
Endearing cords played out
By nature's hand
Interlacing the unexpected
To the unseen beauty of life
It was as it had always been
Through days that grew me
And now no leaves to it in spring
It bows as age bares down
But has left its music in me
A requiem of birth
In this early light
How the course of nature gives
Along the way
Gentle, unexpected gifts
A willow in the mist-

Where were you when my world fell apart?
The Sun darkened and the Moon just fled.
All had been done and all had been said.
And ripped to shreds was my beating heart.
Even the Seas began to part.
And the Mountain tops spread.
I lay there completely dead.
Even the Stars I could not chart.
If only you knew,
If only you were there,
If only you had a clue!
If only life had been fair!
I’d turn the clocks back,
Still standing dead in my track!

I'll get better, one day.
I know I will.
I just have to keep going this way,
and try not to fall down this hill.
Sure, I'll fall out sometimes,
but if I don't, how will I learn?
These are the times-
it's strength, I'll earn.
It takes time to get better,
it takes time to be happy,
but I know if I do this with her,
I'll no longer feel crappy.
This is the time to change,
the time to smile,
time to leave this range,
and run the mile.

Sinking in deeper,
No way to escape,
The dark and scary Reaper,
Fore told in the Book of Life.
Is this my end?
Will I ever see the light of day again?
No. My wounds, I must mend.
I must find my strength.
Stand my ground,
Face my fears.
Only then will my voice be found
I must survive.
Break the suffocating chains,
Run from the darkness.
Power will fill my veins.
I will Fight!
Fight the painful names,
The horrid memories,
The demented games
And escape My Black Abyss.
abuse, anxiety, crazy, grief, growth, life, psychological,
cusp of freedom on the edge
cells lament tormenting truth
new creations work harder
stubborn from birth to its sleep
brave on the sun's horizon
raped inside you by forced smile

Deeper than Deep
Deeper than the Oceans can keep
Deep down below
Beneath the layers we keep
The sorrows that we weep
Tears fill the oceans we see
May they rise up and be our relief
To the sky we look up and we reach
At the Horizon we gather we meet
In a Streamline Deep down Deep
age, beautiful, break up, change, death, desire, growth,
when you dream like a child
and you dream as a girl
when moments do arrive
you've been dreaming all along
your friends area all around you
you think they'll help you when you're down
but friendships just betrayal
cause you've been dreaming all along
saying days are just new
getting old but you never knew
and when moment comes for death
you've been dreaming all along
when you love a girl so much
and she turns and smiles one day
i hadn't been dreaming all along
death, evil, growth, tribute,
Death decay dismay

Today I heard the words,
“I’m not getting involved”.
Would they have said it
To somebody they had loved?
Maybe they would go that far
To show that they don’t care
Since they’re always first to protect themselves
By claiming it’s just and fair.
I would like to say to them,
“One day you may need a protector too
Whether it’s a friend or not
To come and stand by you,
And if you’re not so lucky
And you fail to defend you
Maybe it’ll be your turn, my friend,
When they come to get you”.

velvet tears slip down my cheek.
a gentle cry.
and the wet drops seep in the corners of my mouth
my lungs are full of my own salty, crystalline tears,
bringing buoyancy to boats that sail inside my veins.
as a rule, I try not to cry.
if a single tear is shed, who is to say that another will not follow?
compelling the rest to join
until I’ve immersed myself in the sea I’ve incepted,
all I see are the opalescent peaks of water colliding with my skin.

i love you, and i want to be with you,
you deserve someone
a little less neurotic
a little more normal.
someone who is honest when she whispers, “I’m so happy”
under the covers.
you make me happy.
but you shouldn’t have to change me like that.

like a boat parked in a garage
or a kite lost in space
I feel different today,
both captive and free,
but definitely out of place.
analogy, art, bereavement, fruit, growth, metaphor, words,
A man walks into a room to smell the wallflowers
to find their petals plucked
Perplexed at first, he grimaces then glowers
Some people have all the luck
The sweet yet fetid smell of nearly rotten fruit
in a dank and dark corner
Wafts in the air like muffled notes of a flute
or the whimper of a quiet mourner
I pick up the scent of mint or maybe basil
and scoop up a wilted leaf
It's not yet brown but turning a little hazel
and I hand it to the bereaved
We share an over ripe plum and a pomegranate
with a timid shrinking violet
Such is the ephemeral nature of a dying planet
when we're all deaf and we're all silent

Orchards recurring: Two twenty year olds
on dissimilar paths undaunted by love’s
tapestry approaching exclamatory
yields of apricot musk and peach marmalade
their unified voice. It was you. Tonight you’ll take
me in Albuquerque sex 10,000 miles away.
I’m walking home from Dane Smith Hall thinking of
Houston - how it’s become a common noun I’ve told
you about while outside the fraternity house
and it’s increasingly proper status
watching us smoke cigarettes. Our unspoken
thoughts vanish. Grey. White. Blue. Oncology.
