whimsical windswept whiteness 
wedding weekend wanderlust
willowy wonderland waltz
wrongfully weathered woe
wintry wishful whispers
wrestling woodland wintertide

welcome waxen wallflower
weeping wheezy widow
whimpering wholeheartedly
wrangling worthless worries
wanton wretched wrongdoing
wedged within wickedness

Mourning has broken

Mourning has broken

Mourning has broken...
my spirit and will
Despair I have swallowed...
my bitterest pill

I  never imagined...
my soul needed to purge
So with anguish burning...
I compose this dirge

I've had spectral visions...
haunt me in my dreams
Spinning my meditations...
into nightmarish schemes

My pitiful illusions...
scatter in depth of night
Mourning has broken...
darkness conquers daylight

Essence Of Cinnamon Incense

Cinnamon memories catch my soul in snares

    as I trace in anguish the curve of your lips

      in a photo stained sepia with my tears;

a thousand words... spoken through my fingertips.

We Went On The Boat - A Sonnet for David by ROSTI

It was our pride and joy, that boat...our prize.
We'd sail to Key West every year in fall,
After summer downpours left the noon.
We made our pact there as we both had suffered
from the plague ungluing all our lives.
Now, I'm here next to his pallid body - 
pale blue masque on, jaw aslack, grotesque.
He made the leap; he had escaped, was gone
Upon a journey I could not attend.
He left me all alone to to sail solo.
Yet, he was captain and I his lowly mate.
Who would pull the spinnaker to catch the breeze?
Or talk with me as a person, unaffected?
Now, I was all alone just cast upon the water...

I sold that boat...

Cracking the Mirror Each Time

keeps butting her head against the same mirror
it cracks and breaks finally
so she finds another one as close to it as possible

Same scenario, 
Same scripts
Same arguments.

This mirror leaves too
Why do all the mirrors leave me? She asks.
The cat has no answers. Just glad to get all the attention now.

Broken Hearted - JTAP

Our friendship here had only just started
then you left me alone, broken hearted
you're gone but not forgotten
now life it seems so rotten
ever since the sad day you departed.

We miss you, Chan :)

This was my sadder take on the "poet who broke my heart" contest theme.

The Butterfly Dance

Between the granite stones
Of the dead
Long ago last breaths do part
Memories seeping in dirt
Black birds and magpies
Lace and knots
Lingering thoughts
Swaying too and fro

On top of the dead
Lover is all but gone
Butterflies shown
That life flies on
As shadows rest
Upon ones breast

Red Light

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
lonely as ever
visible at night, useless by day?

in sync with its partner next door
for a quick kiss over a few flashes only 
then arguing again and again 
night in, night out.

have you ever felt like 
the flashing red light on the roof,
not signaling a warning to keep away
but sending a call for compassion?

using the dark pauses in between 
to yell the same name 
over and over and over
into the emptiness of each night.

have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
being your silent cry
only heard by your eternal love?

A Life Sentence

Dear freedom, your sweet innocent voice seems
Now like a distant echo, lost in the wind.
Hopes lost in a set of broken dreams,
With heavy chains, to your heart of stone pinned.

Day by day, night by night, without an end in sight,
Tortured by the ravaging beak of time, flying
With wings of solit'de, displaying its might, 
And hatred-filled eyes, watching me dying. 

These chains around my heart like a vicious snake
Poisoning my soul with darkness and despair. 
A dreadful nightmare from which I will wake
And look into destiny's most wicked glare. 

I stand under shadows cast by heaven's light,
And into sleep I fade, witho't a fight.

Lord, I've Been Hurting

Lord., I've Been Hurting!

This one thing I am
 most certain…
Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.

I trying to do right, but it 
turns out “wrong.”
Where, in life,
do I really belong?

So many people
 pass me by.
Sometimes, someone
may say;  “hi!”

I don’t know if this message is
 getting across?
I feel so confused and 
completely lost.

A message of “help” has my
 prayer and plea…
For God to reach out to me!

He reached down and
made me whole!
HIS love and compassion
 filled my soul!

Spending time with Jesus
 is time well spent!
It was for you and me that 
Jesus was sent!

Heartbreak Hill

Moments pass away as distant church bells dirge; their widow’s woe in windy waver trembles my tears. Up the westward hill smoldering neath sunset’s pyre, I carry the remains of our song in the broken beats of my being, yearning to yield to burning skies and surrender to spiralling empathic embers.

Beneath the Bower

I lay amidst scenes of deepest gloom,
beneath the garden's bower blooms.
Listening to the wind and rhythm of the rain,
weeping grief, my soul in pain.

The darkness deepens,
covering meadows, darker still the woodlands.
Gone the twinkling starry skies,
thunder drowns my soul-sick cries.

Wounded, weary
Sheltered in my fragile sanctuary.
The woeful heart sings,
the torments that life brings.

My heart has no desire to stay,
when my heart's desire has flown away.
I come to the garden alone now,
beneath the bower, our lover's vow.

Torn Seams

Carrying the weight of loss...

After all these years,
I still have unanswered questions
ripping me apart.

Trying to repair
an unraveling life.

I don’t know how
to sew, not like you.
Needle in the eye,
tears in my pocket.

Stitches rubbing together
break me in two
and I don’t know
what to do.

Turning myself 
inside out over
losing you.

Time cannot heal torn seams.

Uncommon Grounds

My heart scans 
for a familiar face 
through throngs
of strangers 
as they scatter 
pell mell 
around me 
eager shoppers 
casing brightly lit 
  sale stuffed store fronts 
while seduced
by the siren song of fresh coffee  
coupled  with 
sticky sweet  cinnamon buns 
the bitter fact
swallows  me
whole again
you no longer reside
of  my dreams

I'm a Star

Once I was just pieces of dust,
Then I fell,
Gravity of my sadness changing me,
Tears fused me together,
And now I am who I am today,
A light to many worlds,
Once broken pieces,
But now a star.

Broken - Living With Heartache

Each breath she takes, her heart aches, Her love has left, she feels bereft, Precious lives lost, dreams of a happy home tossed, Days and nights spent weeping without sleeping, Alone in a throng, she is not strong, Smiling behind her tears, whiling away her years, With a pen and a book in her favourite nook, Amidst the overgrown vines, her heart for her love pines, Each step she takes, her heart aches, With memories left behind by ties that forever bind, Their deadly silence stabs her, as loneliness grabs her, She is no longer awake, she dies each day living with heartache.

Suicidal Note

Tried again, I tried in vain
Far away he went so far
Train of thoughts I need to forget
Upon which my life is hanging
Forgive me, the cork of death opened.

My heart bled
My eyes turned red
My aunt said
My child don't be sad
Because of pain
I was even losing my brain
My tears were like rain
Flowed from my eyes now and again
I was told this too shall pass
And my joy will grow up again like grass
To be strong I was told
My arms were fold
My eyes I closed
I prayed to the Lord
I prayed to my God
As I saw the coffin going down
On my knees I fell
As I saw the coffin going down
I sang with my soul it is well

His mother just passed
He didn’t know how he’d go on
She’d been his everything
Most loyal friend he ever had
The love she had for him
She always said undying
But here she was gone
He never felt more alone
Immune to sounds and
Christmas lights 
All sparkle gone

Crazed by Grief

Nighttime falls shrouded dark and spiritless,
Wavering fire a glaze dying cinder.
In grim silence tears ebb and flow aimless,
Lips quake angry filled breath growing dimmer.

Loneliness devours inch by inch loves amber,
Left raw to feel the flesh stretch. Brittle crust
Steady smoldering embers, numb anger,
Solace grieving soul filled volcanic dust.

It worsens with the tick-tock of the clock.
None can replace time, not a second in
A day hidden beneath insensate lock.
Days overwhelming calamities sin.

Loneliness niggles as the mind wanders
Bound by loves suffering also ponders.

Every Day I Die

Every Day I Die.

Dark shadows cast
Over a cursing clinging damning past
I so want to move forward but the dye was cast
My hands are bound
My feet frozen hopes and dreams are dashed

Drifting aimlessly
All washed up in a turbulent sea
As a lonely barren tree
That once reached for the sky
But was struck by lightening
And deep inside of me
Something died

A butterfly helpless wings ripped apart
A crying heartbroken child frighted
Left in the dark
Gapping sore wounds that never heal
No one else
Knows how I feel
Haunted aborted
Too many knots to unite
Facing a mountain
Every day I die.

Heartbroken I Stand Here So Strong

Once, when you were about to die,
you said: “No tears! The men don’t cry
if things heartbrokenly went wrong”.
Heartbroken I stand here so strong.

Oh, I did not let a tear fall
when the uncaring death took all
that I held dearest all along.
Heartbroken I stand here so strong.

No one was crying when I died.
Please, sweep me out, the blissful tide
of void I waited for so long!
Heartbroken I stand here so strong.

No tears! Instead of nothingness, 
nothing has changed: a noise, a mess
before locked gates stormed by a throng. 
Heartbroken I stand here so strong.

My Death

Death is a shining glory,
It takes away the pain of life.
Celebrating the afterlife is the glory. 

The angels will greet me with dancing feet and melodious chant, they are welcoming me to the feet of the king.

It's a festival of glowing light rejoicing over my arrival. 

Death is a symbol of happiness not sadness for the dead. 

I will dance on the rising sun and fade on the dawn of the morning.  

Death will be my crowning moment the sadness of life is over.

i didn’t see it coming
for days walking in a daze
a fog that wasn’t lifting
obviously in shock
one foot in front of the other
on automatic pilot
not knowing what was next 
then it happened

his ashes were ready to be picked up

triggering a flood of tears
there was no turning back
no delusion of him just having stepped out
he was coming home in a box
he was coming home
home to stay
