Pan Dumb Moan I Am

Monday, October 12th, 2020

This year has not been what I thought it would be – that is often the case but this year more so than normal and this time not just for me. Global events have shaken all our lives to a greater or lesser extent. This upheaval has cost many their lives and upended others, I […]

Tower Cross

Saturday, August 29th, 2020

Inspired by a paining at the Wilson Gallery March 2017 The bridge was fragmented arches Three of them, crossing the river With grey stone feet Growing slimy from the water The spill and stuck around them Remnants of a tower still rose On one side, but not it’s twin Nothing but decay Little windows stared […]

Beautiful Angel

Friday, August 21st, 2020

Beautiful angel drinking red wine I see her eyes on fire And I know the blood is mine Heavenly angel setting out bait I know it’s a trap But its also my fait Shining bright angel walking the earth I hear her singing The songs of my birth Beautiful angel lips ruby red I feel […]

Where The Dead Wait

Sunday, August 9th, 2020

The forest is dark, the trees – their branches are heavy with leaves of dark maroon, their trunks are stark white and smooth, you walk here, with warmth on your breath, clouds bloom from you, white and incandescent, a veil pours from you, drifting up that’s also down, so dark though the sun is a […]

Hate

Thursday, August 6th, 2020

I did not want to I did not want to hate I did all I could to love But it stuck in my thought Memories would not let me abide And it wound around me Gorrotting hope from the inside Stumbling I was a nugget not a pearl Swerlling in the currents Abbradded I lay […]

Snow Drops

Wednesday, July 29th, 2020

Glinting crystals within my sight Blood and roses mark the fight As my eyes begin to sting I can’t identify this thing Is this akin to a shame Do I shoulder all the blame? Underneith the winter snow Where the snow drops wait to grow Here I wait for my doom Twilight shadows begin to […]

Legacy

Monday, July 6th, 2020

You know you Or think you do With your pirated response Ignoring all Potential hazards And leaving it all to chance By combination And unending obession You think it’s the very concept Of intelligence But you escape the foresight That you are not always RIGHT That you never Set out to do anything good Not […]

Waiting Lost on The Salt Sea Shore

Monday, June 29th, 2020

Waiting lost on the salt sea shore 
Waiting lost like never before 
 Locked in time and locked in space 
 Waiting with unforgiven grace 
 
Listening lost on the salt sea shore 
Listening lost like never before 
 Birds do sweep and birds do swoop 
 Waiting for the death time coup 

Looking lost […]

The Hopeless

Tuesday, June 16th, 2020

Forgiveness hung on the edge of death Keyed to an outcome Maybe gold could fix the reality Restoring the dreams magnificence You see when the dream shattered It shredded the love Ripping compassion Leaving only tatters Which clogged the heart Smothered in blood Breath struggled Drowning in the remembering Of a trust betrayed Ghost eyes […]

Broken

Thursday, June 11th, 2020

I am broken But I am breaking more Than I am broke Sometimes I am the breaker Stuck behind my flaws This silence I long to break To open the door But it broke At my stroke Hear my roar Apply the break A screech of C. SHARPE Sends shards of self On the floor […]
