Sacrifice of Vengeance

Flooding in are the waves, As soldiers fall and let out wails. As I stand and wait for those who were saved, Cannons explode to my utmost displease. I get a letter instead of a hug, My brother’s hands shouldn’t have been... (more »)

Such repetitive monotony I stare at the ceiling And yet possibly I see all of humanity We share the same existence, sedentary All that I am now feeling How elementary Grey-ness and grey-ity Another moment, wasted in a hush Death feels... (more »)
Rainstorm
By , Melbourne, Australia
Silver clatter upon my golden orb, While outside air is torn. Calm in plush surrounds, As icy breath is drawn. Rivulets on waxen veins, As pale fibres drink skin’s tears. Brow of the horizon, Bears wild, darkened smears. Golden orb... (more »)

The Awakening of Summer

Upon the barren earth life sprouts anew And the thawing marks the demise of frost In its place tumultuous storm clouds brew And the early setting sun is thus lost. The new season has set its promised course As infant buds fold into vivid... (more »)

The tides of stress seem to rise with the moon, and choppy ocean waters crash against the wall. On this fateful evening in early stormy June, the tidal wave of bedtime starts the nightly brawl.   Thirst, hunger, and fear coincidentally... (more »)
