    The sweep Of sleep's design Weaves the sunlight's Bassinet Steeping with the meadows Of the coursers Of the dawn But night retains And tries to keep Us in diamond studded sleep But after echoes Stained in blooded dew Rinses free to seize the day Washed in rains Born of a mi...

    I’m stuck. Stuck in that most horrifying place; that barred chamber, shunned into an alien existence I never asked to be in. That dreaded, haunting space: the middle.

    Roll call. As if these soldiers really cared exactly how many of us skeletal cattle were left. If that were true, we would have been done hours ago. I stamped my feet, praying I hadn't been seen, with what little strength I had retained; thanking God that I was at least in the middle of the ...

    The strangest visitor of all Walks in and leaves Before you greet Its face Oh, you will never meet But you can always tell it s near And whether it's been here Or there Beside the window On the lawn In the passing Of each dawn At the gate In the street And yet for it We always...

    I am a no one A nothing A who What is the difference Between me and you Is there a secret In a silver-lined shell Hidden in the darkness Where no one can tell Is there a wisdom That goes before time Long beyond rhythm and meter and rhyme For you is a something separate from me Does tha...

    Before the ending moment Of my ending day How many streams of people Have I noticed Trickle through As if one mass Amoebically they sweep Each in their own little bubble Of their own little lives Yet predestiny takes place As two breathing orbs hook on And for the moment All stills Hea...
