     The holidays have a way of making us miss those that are no longer with us. For me it is the gentlest soul I have ever known, or ever will. They just don't make them like her anymore. She went through hardships none of us could even imagine. Born dirt poor, lost her mother when she was very young. Soon she lost several brothers, and then her father. Later on, as a young woman, she lost her husband and then after remarrying, lost a child. Who was she? My Grandmother. She died 5 months shy of her 100th birthday in June of 2008. So why am I writing about her now? Just recently a cousin was going through my great aunts things, my great aunt

The Architect

Words taste like sand unwholesome and coarse striking as lightning on the ear of mercy casting long forever shadows on the killing fields of no quarter pitching righteous wrath against the battlements of betrayal snared in my fist waving ingloriously the banner of truth a familiar beacon that rallies my perseverance in this ages old war for nothing as lofty as peace but for the satisfaction of simple justice long denied and dreamt of sorely in my resolute heart... The architect of loves facade died here.

Broken Beams

One voice heard above the din made me lift my weary chin searching for the owner I found another loner Seeing past the mask of a smile took his hand and walked his last mile He pointed out all the things he would miss called me his Angel, made me promise to remember this Gave a thousand songs all about rights and wrongs Undying love and wishful dreams falling stars hanging on broken beams Now, the days have turned to years with memories to dry my tears The ache I feel renewed afresh my sorrow and joy painfully mesh I sort it out with every waking life is worth living, love is worth taking Each day a gift, shiny and new reso

Gray Roses

Gray Roses

The sob was quiet splitting the worn seams of the starless night impaling the delicate balance into splinters of disarray while the rain washed away all evidence of sorrow now mingled and fallen blanching the frail blooms of scent and color what is life without love if not a bouquet of gray roses?

Another Lament

Another Lament

Just a shade beyond the pale so near translucent a wraith of  memory skims along hollow places and darkened chambers of a heart near numb   echoes of what might have been but was never meant to be another grave lament of this mortal sojourn I wasn't always alone...

Cad

Pearled droplets of salt spray hung like unasked wishes tangled in his wind blown hair framing his face in moonlight and shadow The burdens of his past, fleshy weights pinned to his empty soul lay just over his shoulder on a distant shore Where his name is cursed on soft trembling lips and his memory is clasped tight and shook like a fist against the indifferent stars that burn so bright Yet are as cold as his cads' heart... you are the ruin of me.

Cage

Cage

How could you know your roars robbed me of all things esteemed that the blows reigned all over my innocence would devour hope shatter normalcy placing me in this cage I call preference but never choice for I knew nothing of give but could recite volumes on what was taken How could you know you were breaking what could never be properly repaired How could you know? I told you...

Inescapable

I

Inescapable

I grieve for you with your jaundiced eyes and winter edged heart that you perceive the world is as cold as your soul or as empty as your conscience the milk of human kindness curdles on your lips preferring bitter bile as your cup of tea base expectations a justifiable reward a frozen satisfaction seldom denied Beware the grim honor of reaping what is sown stitched tightly to your fate inescapable...
See all
