Time, Not Time Enough
Fallen leaves fly in the wind's icy sigh,
Feathered limbs shiver, dancing leaves quiver,
The silvery sun's eye will softly cry,
Ripples, delivering life to the river.
But look, with the dusk, in burnt orange clad,
The clock's hands choke me, a coward appears.
Gone is the safety and calmness I had.
I forgot, courage is in spite of fear.
The mean fever of time, not time enough,
That with the winter winds, I waste away.
I cut away love, some leftover slough, but
in another life, old love, I would stay.
If this is sin, a seed of avarice sown,
Then mark me among the devil's own.

Muse and the Moon
Crescent, eerie eyrie,
Fly as you might, and
I will linger in myself.
You and I are both shepherds,
But I of thoughts,
Dark as the womb.
My muse and the moon abides.
Now flows the most beautiful lies;
Shadows, dancers, unfettered,
with words only spoken by night,
relief for my restless mind.
Listen closely, they are whispering
Secrets to bring us peace.
And above, such beating
Of wings, begging me to join them.
This freedom is malign,
Pecking on the bars for seed
When the cage is unlocked.

Unfinished - A Portrait's Poem
The orange sky bleeds blue, onto
skeletal husks disguised as trees,
limbs lost, and searching,
barren of leaves.
It is strange to think
that I feel alone,
among thousands.
They wave to me, please,
chop those lonely trees down.
These golden-frame walls,
they used to hold
life and love and hope and breath,
and may yet,
should these bleak brush strokes change.
But what fruit will grow,
when the stem is cut?
My father has long since withered,
and I am not yet complete.
Snip, snip, snap my tendons.
Sip, sip, sap the blood from my veins.
I am at the mercy of your eyes and mind.
No, please don't look away.
I am not yet complete.

CrematedMan's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Literature
I was featured on DLD by caybeach Born Hobart, Tasmania

Studying Arts/Law Degree 2013.

“Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.”
Studying English and Law is a sure-fire way to find either a lifelong passion or insanity, I'm not sure which I'll end up with yet.

Anyway, been inactive deviation-wise for too long, will post when I can.

Thanks for dropping by,
