Poem #1,949 – “What I could not do” – Modern Romanticism – 3/13/2022

Sometimes, all to ever dois to never answer youthe way I would if you grewbeside me, on the days throughmeadows laced in morning dew. What is there to do,besides refrain from fulfilling you?Your kisses would be bandages,your eyes, distant puddlesin a forest where roots explorethe sadness of depth. You will venture to heal,with a motive […]

Poem #1,948 – “Waking next to No One” – Modern Romanticism – 3/13/2022

The warmth never left.The fire was never out.A spark had kept it,the hearth, of my yearning.The dreams just ache,while the closer I crawlmakes me wander inside therotting reflectionin a mirror. The skies always breakopen, with the clouds fellingthe contents of a void.A walk on a grim path,feeding the birds this remorse,while waiting for sunset. Someone […]

Poem #1,947 – “My Eyes don’t See Stars” – Modern Romanticism – 3/13/2022

Night glows withall the eternity withfutures stretched acrossfarewells and saddestoceans. Day slows inpain, and gusts infrom the windows toyour eyes, your fallen rain,without shelter. All the funerals stopwhile the hearts slow,while the nights breathe withgrief, in the sighs. All the footsteps turn home,hands bang against wallslike doors of strangers, – though this is familiar. This […]

Poem – “A Boiling Tongue” – Modern Romanticism – 3/1/2022

He hates, with a mindthat remembers nothingbut the song.The dirge in the distanceto longest locks dressed overa casket of an empire.Her face, the shortest disgrace,set above a form of broken twigs. Her relief in her last breathhad swept a curtain over her.Her face is keptwith the same brittle tearsas sap to the sleeping tree. Fires […]

Poem – “Details in the Scar” – Father’s Day Poetry – 6/20/2021

I was always wrongTo silence myself where I belong.As you are far behindIn each teardrop that fades,As all rain is never savedFrom its fall, its decline.You did not want to – Want to die,Living upon the crying smile.You were sincere in each word,While winter kept you thirstingTo know if I was listening. I do listen,Smiling […]

Poem – “What it means to Love” – Love Poetry – 6/19/2021

It is a pathwayUpon another, to a gatewayFor another, towards her arms.A challenge with no alarmWith the tears that runTo wake a man to the sun. Someone says to the final wordThat the shadows are all brokenWith the fade of her.A longing to a passage, a scripture,One fault, alone in the winter. One chance, to […]

Poem – “Your Air to Breathe” – Love Poetry – 6/19/2021

Walking backwards on a trail,Smothered footprints set this sailOn the road to find you coveredIn history’s faces and ashes,Weeping through a blank smile,Keeping Saturn wringing your throat – Fatal in the sound for what ropesItself around each changing complexion,To your cruelest resurrection. You wish to lose all,Bending daylight into the fall.For a face in the […]

Poem – “Exiting from Arms” – Love Poetry – 6/18/2021

Crippled, in ashes,Turned to dust at the signOf teeming hope.At once,Bright as the North StarLeading you, through.My reaching arms as boughs,Keeping you from falling through. Tears trail,Connective and unending.All at once,Loose petals are tossedAcross your delicate cheeks. Tears walkIn the presence of the moon,Still apparent to you.Tears speakFrom tongue and cheek. Among the dustFalling from […]

Poem – “How do the Pages Turn?” – Love Poetry – 6/5/2021

ClockwiseTowards the directionOf your sunset,Of yourBelieving in the afterlife,Before the journeyDivides its mileBetween us. The less likelyThe pain shall discover usOnce more, without the caress,Without the shellTo take usBeneath where winter freezesThe trees into shadows – As we loseInfinite breathOn the shapeshifting pathways,On the curving highwaysDrinking the evening’s meltFor waters we once knewWere there, when […]

Poem – “Poem of a Dead Girl” – Romanticism – 6/4/2021

Life by firelightGoes unnoticedTo the world that sentencedHer, beneathCrippled stems without theirPetalsAnd radiance. I knew to love,Knew to lieWhile her flesh wasWithin faltering reach. Crippled,Stagnant for noReason to be unearthedFrom the grain,With all delicacyTo her pain. She had trembled among the leaves,Unable, as I was able to thinkOver which was, among the fall. Autumn’s breeze […]

Poem – “A Head among the Roses” – Love Poetry – 6/4/2021

Picture howFinal terrorsWere warm beginningsFor the faces that did laugh,At the end. Picture nowThe stories caught at angles,Bleeding for miles acrossShapeshifted understandingFor the forests that meltedWhispers into glades. Emptiness in the hollow well,For no cement could encrustA depiction of her fall. I still wishFor the dawn to comeEven as the rose petals fallInto burning fields. […]

Poem – “A Hero’s Heartbeat” – Romanticism – 6/2/201

RepetitionUpon the flowing curvesFor all blue-tinted veins,To the rivers a man wishes toPlunge himself,To sweep the pain clearFrom eyes that bleed moreFor the ocean. Life writes itselfIn verse,As a man holds his heartWithin the rhythm,For notes that gravitateInto rhymes. He wishesUpon no starsAmong immaculate sunlightTo breathe beneath the ocean,In her arms.To swim among the galaxiesShe […]
