Sound Bites (June 25, 2024)

Blessed Quietude

Audibly

  we rise
and fall

But Silence ...
is the language

 of God

(Dreamsleep: June, 2024)


Lost In Place

The past
is never where you left it
Tomorrow
— delegitimizes today

(Dreamsleep: June, 2024)

Final peace

Final Peace

When I'm dead, do not weep
For I am finally at peace
No longer bound by earthly woes
No longer burdened by life's throes

Life and death have always fought
Over my soul, they fiercely sought
But now the battle has been won
And...

What Does It Matter?

What Does It Matter?

Heaven cries in furious rage upon the Earth
Rivers overflow, tornadoes wreck havoc
Walls and windows, picture frames
Memories carried away by wind
And flooding, all the while
Lives are lost like leaves in a breeze
What...

The Flower untouchable

As you are walking the clouds are in the sky blocking the sun. You are in a daydream just wandering then you see out of the corner of your eye a strange site. A flower but no ordinary one it is the most beautiful flowers you have ever seen. Odd...

The moon in the sky.

The moon shines through.

Late one night in the middle of the night, where the stars are brightly gleaming, a sole internal song plays out in whispers of dreams. It echoes through the darkness, a melody pure and true. A symphony of love and...

Hungry Rain

the puddles,
i see the faces of the
forgotten, the ones who
have been consumed
by the world's trap.
their eyes stare back at me,
empty, blank,
like the skyscrapers
that loom above.
the rain's hunger is a reminder
that we are...

Poet

the hollow
of our chest,
a city of
whispers
where shadows
convene
to rehearse
their silences
the echoes come
like refugees
from a war
we can't name
carrying the weight
of all we've forgotten.

and they find themselves
on a...

Myopia

i was a little boy,
blind to the world's decay,
my eyesight was poor,
glasses perched on my nose,
a fragile kid in a fragile world.

i thought everything was normal
because i couldn't see the cracks,
the fissures that ran deep
through...

Shards Of Glass

used and reused
pages of my mind
scribbled with the
ravings of the
damned
incoherent nonsense,
a jumbled mess,
a madman's manifesto,
devoid of sense.

i assemble
the fragments of my
thoughts
like trying to piece together

The shadow in your eyes.

The shadows in your eyes.

You walk in beauty, but I can see the evil that lurks in the shadows so deep in your eyes, a poison that infects your sleep; it whispered's lies within your mind, corrupting your heart; it seeks to bind. A force that we...

War

war
dreams of artillery
silence like a shroud
covers the battlefield
where soldiers once clashed
now only shadows move
whispers of the fallen
echoes of the past
forgotten cries
lost in the mist
of a war that never ends
only...
