i will whisper

I will whisper my heart / to the river / sail a boat my soul / on wishing winds

a note in a vacuum of silence

a note / in a vacuum / of silence / empty of wings / there can be flight

my room full of words

my room full of words / my heart but branded / my soul riddled with / nothing but words

the razor that is my spine

the razor that is my spine / has a voice / “drag me into the bottomless pit / that has become your heart

i walk again the forest of no shades

i walk again / the forest / of no shades

my marrow sings of freedom

my marrow / sings of freedom / from bone / my heart yearns for ash

this blind edge

this blind edge / that binds the / marrow to the soul / is narrow

If silence

If silence / speaks to you / words that put / swords through / your soul / if night unveils / your stories of gold

forgotten names

forgotten names / in the folds of time / forgotten lanes / in a dead street / a muse less poet / in search of impotent lines

Heres comes the day again

Here comes the day again / when night eats up my heart / emptiness takes hold of my words / when teardrops have no shore

eyeless the mountain

eyeless the mountain / cursed the morning / a sun / green its rays / ran dreams to the sea

bones have no way of knowing

what would you do / with a crumpled night / torn frayed with stars / sleep dreams less

brave dogs

brave dogs tear / smear scar stars / into the inky fabric

it ran, soiling the soil that it treaded on, marking its slithering slime for posterity.

a world of his own fantasy

Sleep seeps / into every being / bodies repose deep / dark hours invading

on a landing

On a landing / a turd / a swirling / whorl / brown baked / caked dry / the familiar smell / had lent its place / to the acrid whiff / of ur…

rain chatter

the rain / chatters again / drenching my pain / in vain

she talks shadows

she talks shadows / thick as night / she stares windows / q / u / i / l / l / s / w / o / r / d / by her side

When doves fly

under a gray cotton sky / brave doves fly / swooshing the rain / past yellowed panes

skin upon your skin

another soul hole needs filling / feeling / our need to cover / what is empty / of content

its not you my dear

its often i hear / the whisper / cold it brushes / bruises / my sinking / skin

yet another song

here comes another / song / wringing the sky / dry / dredging / along / the floors / of a shallow soul

one with the dust

their eyes glazed / dead / their faces / traces / of dirt / and mirth

memories of an echo

you did not fear death / nor dying / your ossified dreams / in my marrowless memories / lay biding / time / has no face

two rabbits

two rabbits bit a hole in the sky / to see if angels could fly / they came tumbling / fumbling / for wings / attached to flimsy strings

blue petals

blue petals curl / in the palm of her hand / maroon memories dead / of wanting

building bridges of rain

and she stands / building bridges of rain / under a canopy of tears / her dank thoughts / whirl into dark mists / of ink

if

if you fall / failing flight / slight / drafts making their call / where will you wilt / brazen / sun / drawn to the hilt

the fullness of being empty

The morning zephyr / fingered its rough exterior / found a mouth / breathed into / its empty insides / a song of / unremembered memories /…
