The Funeral

Black Squirrels.....
Leave no shadow
Heads bowed in solemn faith
Cars weaving between stations of the
Cross; and old spanish tiled crypts
A glimpse, then another the casket lowered
The air, acrid with stinging ash of burnt metal; flesh
Fused with memories lost

WE ALL DIE

My piety,my poetry ,my love
All are in vain
my music, my love ,my mind
All are running insane

My rhymes are all crooked
I can't write a perfect song
Looks like my life is worthless
my music, my poetry its all gone

Behold the paradox,
In these old rhymes 
living in a worthless life 
All these times 

The music's almost over
just need to turn out the light
I need just one leap
Need to show on last fight

I need to create something
something that makes you feel
the goal isn't to live forever
Its to create something that will

Ragdoll

Heartbeat slows,
Limbs grow cold,
Memory recalling constant turmoil. 

Memories recanted,
Moments fade to blackness.
This is it. 
Time to release these demons. 

Red lines decorate your paper skin, 
No one knows the secrets within.
You’re so delicate. 
Fragile design, 
Hypocrites delight. 

Stitch up your seams, 
Don’t let them see you bleed. 
Wretched and torn, 
You’re hollow. 

Maybe when you’re gone, 
They’ll understand. 
Hindsight is always clear when measuring the aftermath. 

They didn't know you anyway, 
You know they never cared. 
Released from your endless despair.

Final thought

          I hear the thunder of the foot soldiers
          and smell the reek of their expedition

          I feel the cold of the steel they clamp 
                           to mine wrist
         and the rough of the hemp about mine 
                                 throat

         I hear the last word of the commander
            and the plank beneath mine boots 

                         it's instant crack

          I sense the sudden slow gust of wind
                 rise up mine chin and face
                     as mine last journey

                                is down

The Godfather

I’m a man, just simply a man;
once a child with no other distinction.
I am neither your first son, nor last.

I cannot alter what God has planned, 
nor stop sun to shine, 
nor stop the rain he’s cast.

So, I seek a solution to the paradigm
of angst and joy of life,
of the person I should be now.

Though life’s full of mystery and of misery,
you were there to give me hope and dignity,
no wonder I always love to be with you.

But, when God decided...
we couldn’t say, “No!” 
You left me with his everlasting glory.

As time passes, I realize the greatness of 
love and joy on the day of my friend’s son,
I became like you, a loving godfather.

Pygmy Forest Song

I lost you out there.
You never came on home.
I called for you and I called to you,
but you never came on home.

I lost you out there,
in the bushes and the brush.
I called for you and I yelled for you,
but you never did come home.

Don't say you couldn't hear me.
I won't listen if you do.
I lost you, and I left you,
and you never came on home.

I lost you out there,
but it's what you seemed to want.
I yelled for you for nights and days,
but you never once yelled back.

I walked and walked between the trees,
squinting toward the sun.
I called for you and I screamed for you,
but no, you never did come home.

The morning after

My heart is bleeding
My soul is pleading
For the love that I once knew.
My mind is wondering
My thoughts are crumbling
Remembering how we grew and grew
My love for you will not go
My spirit feels so low
I try to remember the good 
But I will never have understood
How this ended so quickly 
I was out of your life so briskly
I just thought we would never part
and now I have a broken heart

Scatter My Ashes

Scatter my ashes
You can't keep them here
I know you've got me in stashes
Just let go my dear

Keep our memories
Say good-bye to my body
Please be at ease
Say good-bye to my body

I'll save you a place
Up here in heaven
I'm surrounded by grace
Up here in heaven

No need to worry
I found my way home
Clear your eyes so blurry
There's no need to roam

Scatter my ashes
You can't keep them here
I know you've got me in stashes
Just let go my dear

Emptyness

A place still lies
Lonely and untouched
Every night it cries
Seeking for its walls to be patched

A place still lies
But dead in its self
With broken memories
And an empty shelf

I struggle to find myself
In the midst of all the strife
But above me a cloud of darkness
So thick, full of sadness

The place will still lie
But not utter a cry
It shall continue to die
Because no one asked why

Nobody Died

Born the day after tomorrow.
Thirteen stars shone down with sorrow.
A future with nowhere to go.
The answer came, but always no.

A living sculpture of defeat.
Just a shadow on the street.
The rains came down and things got muddy.
On this journey to become nobody.

One by one, the stars went out.
But much too slow to remove the doubt.
The artists painting came into view.
Of a hazy portrait nobody knew.

Somewhere above where angels dwell.
His soul will rise beyond this hell.
Nobody came or even tried.
To pay respects when nobody died.

Remember you

I open my eyes
to another day
as the sun climbs
I fade away
im carried to a place where i feel no pain
carried to a time before you went away

I still feel you close, feel you here
in this life we chose its all so clear
when I remember you, remember you

I close my eyes
from another day
as the moon blinds
I fade away
im carried to a place where i feel no pain
carried to a time before you went away

I still feel you close, feel you here
in this life we chose its all so clear
when I remember you, remember you

A Painted Moment





~ A Painted Moment ~

From deep within a painted moment 
Where shadows crawl through corridors
I peer beyond a silent thought
Where love, my love, sweet love of mine
Shall flutter free abound in light
From deep within, lost in flight
Again alone to wake beside 
The dusty book of dreams

Love Operation

When you left me 
my world began to crumble 
My mind was racing and playing tricks 
on me, because everyone was looking just 
like you. 
When you left 
so did my heart 
Like an heart operation gone bad 
there I lay flat lining 
My heart stop pumping 
the breathe in my body no longer exist 
Then reality kicks in and I realize 
that there is no life without you

The Escapist's Plea,

I dont know where i'm going anymore hard to tell who you are when the indiffrency has settled in cold, empty, barren will i ever find a way? Help me find a way out of this sorrow filled cage My soul singed with everyday Reality so hard to face I need to find a way to escape Only if i could just fly a way I try to stay sane But i fell under the september rain A repuiem for the reality That i never wish to see Help me find a way out of this sorrow filled cage My soul singed with everyday Reality so hard to face I need to find a way to escape Only if i could just fly a way I need a way to escape, Only if I could just fly away

Soul Essence

Soul Essence

Release comes with death.
The mortal host is no more.

A faint and sad cackle is heard,
As all illusions come to an end.

The bare body lies in a stiff repose.
What once was, is now no more.

Tears are shed in a mortal milieu,
As the soul begins its ascension.

The flowers in decoration serve
As a human memory of the past. 

Tender emotions now permeate the air,
As the flowers’ sweet smell is realized.

The moon shines bright in the dark sky,
As the soul now meets its cosmic destiny.

Love Notes

Love notes 
Wordings from the heart
That I’m trying to use 
To cover this scented stationery
With my ball point scribbler, I’m proud 
To match the sensual scent 
Of your lovely and fiery lips
With crimson thoughts, but as I finally come 
To end my writings, after so many pages 
Hooked thrown into a silent bin 
I begin to wonder if it’s better to recite
My love notes to you in person
For this way you would feel 
Much, much better…
The bubbling rhythm 
Of my heart

RECOLLECTIONS

Lost in an orchid. You and I.
Drunken songbirds, we’ve sipped the waves
And drank of day, of dank, of dusk
Together. You and I.

Yesterday a mystery slapped me 
So hard I became a question mark.

Now
I stare in the face of memory, a prisoner,
Body, soul, and reason in the orchard
At La Pina beneath the sweltering pine.

Platero...

My Dad

Winds of time, ever so slightly, You shortened his life each night and day. Endlessly ticking, whispering quietly, With never a pause from your beaten way; Winds of time, even now, you blow as before, Leaving his traveled path void of a single track. As our imagery of him slowly becomes no more, Your sound continues, clickety-clack, clickety-clack. Winds of time, while parting, another was born, Leaving footprints on life's path anew. In time, to pass, leaving loved one's torn, God, alone, will declare the hour you are through.

Now Man Thats Hard

Now Man, That’s Hard By: Miracle Man 8-2-2019 Some days life’s like walking a cat on a leash, Or like putting socks on a Rooster, I suppose. If you’ve ever been there, I know you Capeesh, God has twice delivered me from Death’s throes.

rest

10/7/18
available through all major streaming services and general digital stores 
from the album babylon through my solo project sempiternal sepulchrality 
———————————
i lie prostrate awaiting rest
pondering things i most regret
decades of life 
conclude in the anguished 
passion of minutes
have i lived and suffered
only for this moment
a death in elated hysterical
state of mind
or do i die in the shadow
of potential left behind

Untitled #188 / STARDUST

“And STARDUST we will be again”

Poem Details | by juan blanco |
Categories: write,

Your death lies before you

Oh! Mighty kings, how many of you have been cursed by a beautiful silhouette. 
How many of you have willfully fallen unto treacherous ground. 
You have been poison by her pleasures and in her labyrinth you reside, for love is her poison, and desire is a trap.
King no more, but a broken man, for before you a woman exults herself, and in her nakedness –your death lies.
-one

- Paradise Peace -



There is a place
where you may rest in peace
A train leaves the station
Another train derails


A tear falls slowly
down from heaven a place
A broken tear of silver
it is to shine on the ground


There is a place
where you may rest in peace
Desert without watering hole
you can not manage it more


A frozen rose will never pass away
You know that morning will come
Your eyes ask me silent
Do you love me


There is a place
where you may rest in peace
No one knows the end of life
Or if there is a reason to sing

Life and Death of a Tree

My roots are strong surrounded by dirt. I am watered by the down pour of rain, 
and 
sprinkled water. As I start to grow and come alive I become stronger by the 
nourishment 
I receive. The sun beats down on me and stimulates my growth, and I am 
comforted. My 
leaves begin to turn green and stick out like a small birds feather. I am looked 
upon 
and admired for my outer beauty. I begin to get stronger and stronger and then I 
start 
to shed, and my leaves fall away. seasons change and I feel cold and stiff as I 
turn 
brown in color. My beauty decreases as I age then I die, but yet I return from 
death 
just to start life all over again.

Goodbye is not Forever

Tears fell down my cheeks
My heart filled with sorrow
When you took your last breath
Knowing you won't be here tomorrow 
The lives you have touched
Span from far to near
Your strength, love, and courage
We will always hold dear
Father, grandpa, brother, uncle
And a true friend to us all
The embodiment of selflessness 
Your heart was never small 
One day we shall meet again
No matter when or how
It's not goodbye forever
It's just goodbye for now
