Deadly Sins

I cleaned his trash bin full of yogurt wraps. He never said a word and fine by me, Or so I thought, but once he spoke: he taps My shoulder, saying, I cannot let things be. His hands were shaking, fluttering in the air. I called his... (more »)
The God in the Bullet

There was a God in the bullet, There was a God in the trigger, There was a God in the finger that'd pull it, But there was no God in her,   Like a star through the night sky it sailed, And all mortals shook in it's wake, For that... (more »)

Sunburst

For what it's worth, I think you'll love her soon. She'll captivate your heart and I'll stand by, If she's the Sun, I am the hopeless Moon, Still fighting for a brighter piece of sky. And maybe day is safer than the night, Yet fear strips... (more »)

Midlife
Custom User Avatar
Hear the clock pound pound pound.  Time moves forward, oh so fast,  While I sit in a chair and dream of my past;  I remember hiding, waiting to be found,  Of warm summer days and a merry-go-round.  The ambition I had, unbroken or... (more »)
Sonnet of Tano

Everything came out from underneath her, Her knees buckled, and everything shattered. Her views of the past turned sad and bitter. He ran after her; it didn’t matter. They turned their backs on her, though he didn’t. She couldn’t stay... (more »)

Shakespeare

Shall I compare you to a summer’s day? You’re perfection and are very beautiful. You’re so lovely it’s got me feeling some way. Summer days are actually pretty dull. Everybody eventually loses their beauty! Summer days are not... (more »)

My Days are Mortal
Custom User Avatar
My days are mortal, fading, like a fire that burns out like the embers in a mist It pains my mind to think of things not prior to death, to rot in earth, to not exist But such a fate is destiny for all, for all the earth and all that do... (more »)
