Procrastination

In poem, poetry, procrastination on March 31, 2014 at 10:15 am

What darkness of the spirit possesses
that corrupts the flesh and weakens the spirit
that says, let us wait, let us do it tomorrow
and then tomorrow comes
and tomorrow becomes today
and we say, let us wait, let us do it tomorrow
and so on till the end of time.

In Uncategorized on March 29, 2014 at 9:31 am

Detailed dreams torment
with clear yet obtuse visions,
meanings beyond reach.

Perchance to Dream

In dreams, poem, poetry on March 29, 2014 at 6:14 am

The hour is early,
the rising of the sun still hours away.
The midnight torment of the soul,
the dreams of incredible detail
and utter strangeness fill my sleep.
Flying, running, confusion,
searching, questing,
seeking some unknown goal,
yearning and looking for answers
just within grasp,
just out of reach,
then slip silently
beyond knowing.

The sleeper awakes,
normal programming resumes,
leaving vivid memories
of questing dreams
and answers unrealized.

My Spirit

In haiku, poem, poetry on March 26, 2014 at 7:44 pm

My spirit spills forth
in random words on a page,
preaching to the world.

Fear

In love, poem, poetry on March 24, 2014 at 5:32 pm

I can’t love you because you’re not young.
I can’t love you because you’re not beautiful.
I can’t love you because you’re not rich.
I can’t love you because you don’t have a nice car.
I can’t love you because you don’t have a good job.
I can’t love you because you’re not of my faith.
I can’t love you because you don’t belong to the same political party.
I can’t love you because you’re not physically perfect.
I can’t love you because you are short.
I can’t love you because you’re fat.
I can’t love you because you snore.
I can’t love you because my family wouldn’t approve.
I can’t love you because I’m too busy making lists of reasons why I can’t love you.
I can’t love you because I don’t really know what love is.
I can’t love you because I don’t really love myself.
I can’t love you because, as much as I want love, it scares me to death.
I can’t love you because, despite all my fears, my can’ts, I might love you anyway.

Desiring release,
her touch dances lightly.
She seeks her center,

The boy smiles shyly.
The girl blushes, looks away.
Planting seeds of love..

Today, three words.

In life, poem, poetry on March 20, 2014 at 6:17 pm

Who are you?
I don’t know.
Who am I?
A good question.
Why is this?
Because it is.
Why am I?
Because I am.
Can we know?
We can try.
Should we care?
Yes, we should.
Does it matter?
No, it doesn’t.
Why, pray tell?
Because we are.
Because we can.
So should you.
We live anyway.
We love regardless.
Because we do.
