Literature
One Day
You survived a thousand years
of heartbreak for one day of love.
You saw a thousand pigeons
for the sake of one dove.
You have survived your life
up to this moment.
It's the longest story you'll ever write
and you will till your fingers are broken.
Write your thousand years
of longing, painful, sweet.
You may find a meaning there
be in the prologue or down, down deep.
But also write your triumph.
Your single day of fulfilment
Your thousand years of rainfall
was worth your day of brilliance.

Literature
What are They Calling Love This Week?
What are they calling love this week?
And what did they call it last?
Affection? Adoration?
Or just the feeling of years, passed?
What are they calling love this week?
And what do they call hate?
Is displeasure just a mix of two?
If not, what do they make?
What are they calling love this week,
in this, the modern age?
When love can span across the globe
from screen to screen and page to page.
Can we just call love, “love”?
Or should has it been cheapened to a point
where it means the same as hollow mockery?
Not the cause of great endpoints?
Maybe it's just me.
But call love what you will.
You know what they say about the names of roses.
And that is such a bitter pill.

Literature
Car-Ride Sunsets
Sunsets spied through car windows
Cotton candy clouds
floating, gentle, over hills and glens
putting on night like a shroud.
The golden sun travels with you
as you race down the road
watching hills of cotton
while traffic speeds and slows
It's only a matter of time
before streetlights and headlights
are the only illumination
in the encroaching night
But this is a time of wonder and awe
that can't be captured in a photograph
Sunsets through car windows are ephemera
while the driver makes time and a half

Literature
Coffee
Held aloft by caffeine
suspended in my cup.
When I'm drowning in tiredness
There's always coffee to pick me up
Coffee is the bitter bean
that has the smell I love.
It's trickle into the pot
from the grounds above.
Coffee cradles me
in it's sweetened arms
It slowly wakes me
in it's aromatic charm.

Literature
Ocean of Indecision
Drowning on your “Maybe's”
Choking on your “Should of's”
Crushed by all the things we did not do
and running from all the things we did
Waves of “I might's”
Washed up on the shores of “I wish's”
are the bones of “What if's”
washed clean by the ocean of indecision.

Literature
Endlessly
I wish for you, endlessly.
I wish for you to touch the tips
of your tips of your dreams,
pull them in close, to kiss them on the lips.
I wish for you, endlessly.
I wish for a peaceful end for you
with tears, and closed eyes
and love spoken, true.
I wish for you, endlessly.
I wish for your stars
and that you may one day reach them
what ever they are.
I wish for you, endlessly.
I wish for you.
I wish.

Literature
Discarded Dreams
Gatherer of discarded dreams
that have fallen by the roadside.
Falling off cars as people drive to work
losing their dreams, thinking they died.
So many actors, writers, singers, poets, and artists.
So many promises and wishes made
So many left broken and lost
by the side of the highway.
People think working means they can't have dreams
People think all kinds of things that are not true
but I'll tell you this secret. I have picked up your dreams
and they wait for the day you remember you are you.

Literature
The Surface of Sleep
Breaking the surface of sleep
like a shattering glass
We may never dream again
but we went out in brass.
The surface of sleep like the skin of the water
breaks then forms again.
We see it grow morph
till it is forever changed.
Is the the death of sleep?
Or the sleep of death?
We need our slumbering dreams
more than we need breath.
Because we breathe to live
but dream of more
But love and passion?
“This is what we stay alive for”

Literature
Crowned the Fool
We have crowned the fool
and named him "god"
The people in the streets called,
"He once was us but now is awed!"
He'd bite off praising fingers
and swallow the toes he stepped on.
He stands resplendent in his robes,
making a mockery of the dawn.
He started as the fool he crowned
but foolery blossomed into madness
And now where we would scorn and giggle,
he paints blood on faces of canvas

Literature
Your Body Burns
Your body burns by candle light
till you're out of wick.
You must light yourself a fire
for a new candle must be lit.
The flames, so hot.
How fast you burn.
Simply to be comfortable?
What a silly thing to yearn.
Your flesh will turn to ash
as there is fire within
but you must burn with flames
if you ever hope to win.
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine

Literature
Wish Upon a Star
Wish upon a star
for something better
than these shining baubles
like flowers in a letter.
The crunch of leaves upon the ground
or a morning full of rain
But what we have are goods
and a sky full of pain
But hark, child.
Atlas is about to shrug
his heavy, weighted shoulders
As all of us have grown so smug.

Challenge-Haiku of Horror-Bones
I stand beneath you
And embrace you with all four arms
I'm here for your bones

Literature
When You Flew
I saw you when you flew
but I also saw when you hit the ground
You crashed like an angel
without making a sound.
The flying was just as silent
You soared without a word
and when you started to fall
not a sound to be heard
And such a sweet thing
to fall so hard.
But what could you have thought?
With wings made of paper and card.
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine

Literature
Why Did You Ever Say That You Could Fly
Why did you ever say you could fly?
You're sinking, fast
and when you thought you flew
you sunk, deep, into the past.
Why did you ever say that you could fly?
because you can and you will
You don't have to believe
You can fly standing still
Why did you ever say that you could fly?
You soar.
You touched your tongue
to heaven’s floor
Why did you ever say that you could fly?
Because you took an Icarus leap
The sun burned your wings
and fell into an unending sleep.

Literature
She Was My Galaxy
She was my galaxy
and my night sky.
She was the crispness in the air
when the evening was nigh.
She was the darkness in my day
and the sun at night
she was the angels from bellow
and the devil in heaven's light.
She was all the space of a wheat fiel
compacted in a room.
She was and always will be
My love, she is the moon

Literature
To the Real World
To The Real World,
You are cruel and harsh.
Where man may not love as he pleases
and there is slush in the park,
You have winter in your blood
You judge a man by the knocking of his knees
not the ground on which he stood.
You leave golden dreams by the wayside
in favour of steel reality
and those who try and retrieve them, you criticize
I prefer the company of fools
who have toppled men and king in laughter
than let reality rule.
I prefer a world where there is no slush on the hill
Where a man may conquer in heart, in head, and in arm
Where a man's strength is measured by his will.
From,
     Camelot
