appreciation, bird, birth, death, life, spiritual, symbolism,
To live forever like the phoenix;
To re-taste the process of birth;
From the cleansing flames, to rise
Knowing death is no end;
An eternal soul
On a journey
May just find
death, encouraging, life, meaningful, philosophy, pride, symbolism,
Flowers are like people
when one withers, another blooms
christian, death, goodbye, love, metaphor, religious, symbolism,
Scattered on the ground,
Out of their element.
Deprived of its origin.
Clarity no longer visible.
In the purest snow,
Frozen to the core.
Stripped away so rash.
Trampled into dust.
Stolen without knowledge.
Endless death fighting to prevail.

She Gazes Back At Her Path Of Destruction
Stir-fried, blackened hand that stole many hearts
well-done, the fleshy flesh that tastes so good.
Like a fleeing animal that jumps and darts
love and live forever if only she could.
In fright, scared of stiff, boring boredom
a queen fluffing up for the next throne.
Her smile could win any kingdom
Her cuts gash so deep--down into bone.
She gazes back at her path of destruction
another heart in her black crushing hand.
Misery, depression, pain- her sweet elation
clawed feet in the pit of hell, there she stands.
Let the dead now hear, her anguishing cries
as bolted justice now descends from clear skies.
Jerry T Curtis
analogy, celebration, christmas, eulogy, metaphor, satire, symbolism,
In a little public park
In the little town of Small
There's a little village square
Large enough to hold them all
And they meet there once each year
As they make their little plans
To take a little bit of time ,
And do as little as they can
So they'll give it little thought
And then say a little prayer
Soon, in a little while
Very little of them cared
Then they give a little greeting
Unwrap a little gift
And do a little eating
To receive a little lift
When they feel a little better
Lying in their little beds
They'll be dreaming very little
In their very little heads
allegory, death, heaven, imagery, metaphor, spiritual, symbolism,
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.

allegory, analogy, confusion, death, symbolism, write,
A cat pursuing mice
to think twice;
an owl swooping on prey
shows no thought
Then enters man--
a higher moral ground
yet kills for sport
as well as nutrition…
Oh! on occasion
art, bereavement, dark, death, memory, sorrow, symbolism,
Yet A Spark In This Lost Soul Still Ignites
Cast into barren deserts of sorrow
no real joy and no hope for tomorrow
In burning darkness and hot blasting sand
endless sad tunes from destiny's band.
Nights are so cold and without future plans
sorrow's furnace blows its misery fans
Death, your deep, clawed grasp has taken this soul
I, walking shadow, now with no life goal.
Every new dawn, hot sun bakes and defeats
this tired old beating heart with thirst it treats
Hours pass as years, I find no real relief
from deepest caverns of this epic grief.
Yet a spark in this lost soul still ignites
faith in my mind, I shall win future fights.

The dead don’t care
what colour poppy
you wear -
if it’s knitted
or a diamante stud
for dead men stare
with blinded eyes
and their despair
is the colour of
the khaki in the mud
The dead don’t care
what colour poppy
you wear -
white for peace
or purple, red for blood
they gave their lives
that you should have one
is the colour of
the khaki in the mud

ashes in an urn
a lovely new urn
whose ashes are they
who was burned that day
maybe they’re all mixed in
ashes indistinguishable and
undiscriminating in one
could there be hope
business, conflict, freedom, grave, money, power, symbolism,
some days I'm neither decisive nor constant still in mid step advancing parallel combining
due stress pre-tense in depth, feign fair, fair is not love nor hate,objecting
lines turning war torn due reputations proceeding by stride and sweat pourn ,
but the clocks harder at self gaining advantage and foolish lost to
insincerity, caused by quotes barley examples of thought misunderstood .

La Belle Dame sans Merci
Circe-Enchantress to all.
Beautiful, deadly in her elfin grot
She wept and sighed full sore
Hath thee in “Keatsian” thrall.

Love is a four letter word
she whispered into his ear,
So is four, as is word
he whispered back into her fear,
Such is "you and I"
cried his heart - she could hear,
Their cheeks hugged, eyes kissed
each shedding a single tear.

The sun has learned
to nevermore interfere
with the moon
and its stars
To give it a whole world
because the sun
doesn't need to stand in the way,
when it has free reign
of the entire universe.

Autumn, sniffing around
for a place to settle
no Farmer's Market

When you look at the hills faraway at sunset,think of me:
I am the black flock of birds that disappears into the horizon;
I am the beautful golden sunset that touches your heart;
I am the wind that blows towards the hills;
And I am the dark house upon the dark hills;
I am the old grave that lie silently in the dark moist forest,

Earliest morning, twilight blend
Near the horizon silver pretend.
Breeze is gentle, weather delight
Happy together, wishful and bright
Who else is here ready to fly?
need and greed reason to cry.
Lonely, I am, driven by pain;
nowhere to go, nothing to gain.
Where is this place, an orbiting ball?
Maybe a prison, with no doors and wall.
I wish to fly, higher than sky.
Without any wing, I would rather die.

Alas there is no more confusion,
finally found my last conclusion.
Expect me as if Jesus will return,
from a ghost to a realm of concern.
Your dreams are portals like doors,
welcoming spirits into hasten wars.
Leaving the thoughts without trust,
keeping your fears in much disgust.
And though you sought no consequence,
deeds that confirm a wicked malevolence.
Awaiting in your nightmare of screams,
enjoy what is left amongst your dreams.

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!
angel, death, goodbye, prayer, rights, spiritual, symbolism,
When my time passes
And there’s no breath left in me,
Take my ashes to the oceans
And set my spirit free.
There I can rejoin my friends
There I will not be alone.
There I can make my amends
There I won’t be unknown.
Far too much blood spilled onto this planet
Makes its way to the sea.
The raining of blood by droplet
Rejoining there finally.
Don’t leave me in the cold, cold ground.
No – No imprisoned tomb for me.
Let the waves be my stone bound
An anxious tide, my cemetery.
There I can float on endless waves
A moving monument to see.
And if you leave a tear on my grave
I can float it away with me…

death, life, peace, seasons, senses, symbolism, time,
Time goes by so slowly
Life goes by so fast
We are just the sand
In a desert so vast
Time is the reaper
We are the corn
Time is so plentiful
when we are born
When we get old
Time is the same
But you and I cannot remain
When we are grieving
Time is the healer
When we are sleeping
Time has no meaning
When we are dying
Time does no crying

In Hades flows the chthonic Styx, a river
of pain and woe—a current of despair,
a spiritual demise that we all share
that shell-shocks our souls and makes us shiver!
Beware! It's like cirrhosis of the liver
that kills with great relish—it does not care,
and torments us beyond what we can bear.
Entombed like lifeless shells, we now quiver
with the drowned ringing of the wet death-knell
(where Heaven's overflowed and God is dead),—
as if we’re just a drink away from hell.
Here, where daunted souls dare not swim or tread,
we are like phantoms; like ghosts in a shell:
yet, we fear not hell—but despair we dread!

Time moves on,
and soon will tell,
when asked for whom
they ring the bell…
…and forty lost,
you left before twilight.
When it’s half as much,
at twice the cost,
in perfect light…
We live in castles
…made of sand,
we come as a stranger,
but leave as a friend…
your last first kiss,
those times will be
Your smile indeed
could cast a spell.
You learned to
play a bad hand well…
With all our hopes
and dreams in tow,
we are old too quick,
and wise too slow.
Life’s an elaborate
Would you live again,
if you had the chance?
