To My Darling

If I could will my heart to stop
and breathe a final breath
I'd sit beneath an old oak tree
and trade my life for death

The pain in life of losing you
is more than I can bear
how can a man be happy when
his better half's not there

Life's meaning's gone when I lost you
no purpose can I find
for you were but the reason i
loved life and cherished time

I cannot will my heart to stop
I'm waiting for the sign
from God to show His mercy to
unite us one more time

A Little Too Quiet

It's a little too quiet now, I can't hear the love in her voice. And yet, the sound of her laughter is oft overheard in my dreams. Since she died and went to heaven it's a little too quiet now. And all that I took for granted, morphed into precious memories. Her gentle goodbye broke my heart and I could hear me screaming no. It's a little too quiet now, and the silence is deafening. I pray to a merciful God to keep her alive in my thoughts. Her heartbeat was my symphony, it's a little too quiet now.

Appalachian Homecoming

You were born here,
Blue Ridge foothills, spirits of Cherokee in
Appalachia's olden heart and veins,
Scots-Irish influence of beloved bluegrass,
moonshine of the drinking kind,
your grandmother's white farmhouse,
she fried okra better than anyone,
grew an acre of tobacco,
and loved the Lord.

Your childhood wasn't blessed,
you had to leave in your youth,
to another southern state of beauty,
where we met, we wed, weren't wealthy,
yet, our daughter is our glory,
son-in-law, and grandchildren gifts
she gave us,
we returned to your birthplace
years ago, 
then you passed, not quite elderly,
Appalachian homecoming,
as banjos and dulcimers play softly.

Eternal Breath

I think about you, every single day,
Since from me, you were taken away,
Your absence has left my world cold,
Now I am alone, with no hand to hold.

I wish that I could bring you home,
So that your soul, shall need not roam,
I hope that you were given white wings,
To fly amongst, where the angel sings.

Within my heart, your eternal breath,
Shall now linger on, even after death,
My love for you shall never cease,
So, may you always rest in peace.

R.I.P. William Dale Eubanks
d. July 1, 2012, aged 68 yrs., Tennessee Ridge, Tennessee

Death came as no surprise
the first Sunday in July;
it claimed you, on a ridge in Tennessee,
with kin who took you in and waited with you
through the last hard days.
You kept what fears you had well hid,
did not betray with loud complaint
the fate you could not but know awaited.

A smile, a joke, a hug – exotic meals –
And genuine interest greeted all you met.
And you were, certainly, never boring
but well-traveled and smart beyond the telling.
We’ll miss your wit, your bright demeanor,
and will remember all you freely gave ---
and what you took from us
with your passing.

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.

draped close for the night
film scenes of you have no end -
mourning sobbing starts

Mercy, a sonnet

Is this then all there is now, only me
And all there is now left for me to do 
Cry ‘mercy’ to the unforgiving sea
And bury all the love I had for you
Beneath the sorry roses in the shade
Of yew trees, in the graveyard, by the wall
Let tenderness and fondest feelings fade
Until the day there is no you at all
Within my mirror, only empty sky
And tumbleweed across the arid ground
No answer to the question of my cry
Just silence; oh my love, in you I found
A heat too sweet and gentle to forget
Have mercy on me, love, don’t leave me yet

It Was An Ordinary Kind of Day

It was an ordinary kind of day,
You had left me to go to work
And drop off Denny at school

A factory klaxon was sounding
In the distance; and I pictured the 
Morning shift dragging the night's 
Dreams inside
Outside, the peach trees we had 
Just planted, bowed to each other, 
As though acknowledging their taste 

And then that picture on the mantelpiece
Brought night in to the breezy light room,
Tugging at my shirt collar like a debt 

But I turned away to the blue sky; and
The bowing peach trees asked why?

Glowing Cloud On Mountain Top

Glowing Cloud On Mountain Top

I met you there, so very full of grace
single rose in your shining raven hair
Radiance beaming from your sweet face
couldn't stop myself, I had to stare!

Every moment since, forever treasured
nights glowed on, your smile a star
Everything since that night measured,
love raced in deep, like a speeding car!

Now time has given me such great sorrow
Heaven welcomed your spirit on in
Misery my food, heartache my tomorrow
forever gone my lover, my great friend!

Glowing cloud on mountain top now dances
I gamble that climb and took my chances!

Eternal Flame

Without you, the days are so long
& sometimes it's hard to just carry on.
You gave life & love to all things
The joy of giving was what you would bring.

I see your smile inside my head,
It just isn't fair that you have to be dead.
I know you suffered though all the while
You held your head high & even would smile.

As I watched you go through it, I always had hope,
Even when we came to the end of the rope.
Everything that we went through
Helped make us closer & more loving too.

Through ups & downs you always were strong
Even when you knew you didn't have long.
Life can be kind & cruel in the same,
But you will live on forever because of loves eternal flame.

My Dreams Of Daddy And Cheryl

Daddy you and Cheryl are always in my dreams

Is it that your spirits are visiting me as it seems,

Some times I wake up and I am crying

The dreams are so real I forget you both maybe trying,

To tell me something and yet it is hard to make sense of it

I guess I want to know why it is you both just sit,

Just sitting calm in the dreams and I try to understand

But, I know if you do talk I am to listen very close as you take my hand.

If I could show my feelings,
I'd paint them in the sky,
In words so large, that you could see,
A tear fall from my eye.

My heart it pounds like thunder,
My tears are falling rain,
As now I know I'll have to wait,
Until we meet again.

We somehow found each other,
So many dreams came true,
The sun exploded in my soul,
The moment I met you.

So all I want to say,
Now time is standing still,
Is now you're living in my heart,
And that you always will.

Sadness only taggs along after elation,
chains prefer to cling to the freeman's skin,
heartbreak only follows trust and expectations.

trying to breathe,
with lead-lined lungs,
In an oxygen deprived world
during an asthma attack.

Grasping for the peices.
Pulling them back.
my mind ceases 
on the brink of a panic attack.

my hands begin to shake
eyes watering on the brink of tears,
the last of my sanity to take,
drowning in my fears.

Monsters may not want blood,
and they may not have claws,
nor the mandible, drooping—
the smiling jaws;
without scales or hair,
even growling, I dare
say that monsters may lurk
deep inside you.

Still, without teeth
they may gnaw at your soul;
without mouths, they may take you
and swallow you whole,
or leave you in tact
save a broadening hole
that pulls you inside
and reminds you.

Post Mortem

Post Mortem by David Lustrup 2011

Here I lay....dead
Icy ,black, thick blood, motionless in my veins
Yet i see from my eyes.
Numbness, this world of grey.

I hear the sound of birds wings--scratching, fluttering, playing in reverse.
I lay in rigor, the world goes by in scattered frames.
And the sound is out of sync.

Deafening silence. The icy chill in these bladed raindrops.
I feel them hit my naked lifeless body like anvils,
As I lie cold and dead in this freezing grave of your absence.

We Miss You

We miss you so much but can't tell you so
We known when God called you had to go
But that doesn't ease the tears that flow
You inspired me more than you'll ever know
I wish I had took the time to tell you though
I'm glad you knew I loved you from the actions I'd show
Missing you hurts so much and it only seems to grow
So your Mom must feel like a light with no glow
Every time I think about it my anger starts to row
But then I remember God sits high and he looks low
So the cowards who killed you will reap what they sew

The End

there came a time,
more than a moment
pained and slow, 
begging to surrender.

regrets flew, hopes landed
tears swam, games ended.

I once loved a Black king

I once loved a Black king.
He held my heart, he was my everything.
He held me within his majesty
And gave me the chance to be his own king.
Afraid of his kingdom's reign,
I ran away one day.
His powers rained down for years;
We both moved on into new love affairs.
I still love my Black king,
Yet he sings to his new own king.
I watch from outside the kingdom's gates
His majesty shine like never before.

Yeh khaalipan

Jab Meri Bechaini Mit Jayegi
Jab Mere Dilko Sukoon Mil Jayega
Yeh Khaalipan Mit Jayega

Do Pal Ki Chandni Ke Liye
Aj Bhi Zinda Hoon Main
Meri Khaamoshi Ke Ageh Aasmaan Bhi Khatam Ho Jayega

Kehne Ke Liye Toh Roz Marta Hoon Main
Thoda Aur Marne Ke Liye
Yeh Deewana Kal Phir Ayega

Miss You

The time moves so slowly now that we are apart,
 each minute passes with a beat of my heart.
I long for the time that we spent together and wish those moments could last forever.
How I miss you and long for your touch,
 your tender words and thoughtfulness that I loved so much.
As the sun sets and another day is done,
 I know someday we will be as one.
So my love know this to be true,
 only God knows how much I miss you.
