Two Tears

taste of bitter
first tear
reaches my lips
 
sadness
sorrow
lost potential
 
healthy young man
dead
 
years pass
pain acute
like
he just left yesterday
 
where is he now
 
small asteroid
among the stars
 
diffused
in celestial
energy fields
 
in the tree
beside the pond
where his ashes lie
 
or
 
only in my heart  
 
does it matter
 
except
to me
 
bitter taste
 
second tear
descends

Death Unveiled

Most often, you must join me on this side in order to realize there is no you, no me.    
 
We are but perfect energy contracting and expanding, simultaneously, always. † †
† †
From the other side, † †
this message of love † †
a mere mirror. † †
† †
You mourn a loss. I cry as well, for I am you. † †
As you are consoled, I , too, am comforted. †  
I rejoice and soak in the revelation: †  
All is one. And it is well. † †
And, though you may not yet know it, you celebrate as you marinate, too. †  
† †

Counting to Infinity (a Quintain)

Love's heart
Pressed so to ear
Two four six twenty-eight
Then the terminal beat and mine
No more.

The Portal

 
Death is the ever mysterious inevitable,
The only sure thing that life will always bestow,
An unpredictable yet random variable,
Never knowing when or how one will ever go.

Death is the final culmination of life,
Sometimes leaving some in astonishment,
Unbiased in the choosing of its recipient,
Regardless of the list of accomplishments.

Itís the unavoidable sound certainty,
For death it doesnít matter who you are,
It can be far or it can come out of nowhere,
It doesnít care even if youíre a superstar.

Death makes us ponder about destiny and fate,
Appreciating things more presently, ferventlyÖ
But death is the portal to another dimension,
Where mortals transcend into eternity.

Death Wears a Sexy Grin

     
Always waiting for the call † † † † † †  
Death dreams of your date with her whore † † † † † †
legs of perfection elegantly crossed † † † † † †
gracing the lobby of a Siberian hotel † † † † † †  
always eager to take your hand † † † † † †
and guide you expertly † † †  
up the stairs † † † † †  
† † † † † †
There's no going back from there † † † † † †  
no-one ever checks out † † † † † †
so no need to fret about the tab † † † † † †
The ultimate service† † † † †  
completely gratis † † † † † †
and almost always † † † † † †
a once in a lifetime experience † † † † † †  
† † † † † †  
After they've passed through † † † † † †
Death's guests don't give much away † † † † † †
but if you wish to draw † † † † † †
some personal conclusion † † † † †  
then ponder the positives † † † † †  
think no news is good news † † † † † †
especially on your dying day † † † † † †
† † † † † †
As I trembled upon her bed † † † † † †
Death slowly undressed †† † † † †  
tossed back her head and laughed † † † † †  
sheerest black panties twirled round a finger † † † † †  
inching closer for the 'kill' † † † † † †  
she-wolf hungry to climb on top and screw†out my brains † † † †† † † † † †
until only dust † † † † † †
or the memory of a shudder remained † † † † † †
† † † † † †
I am sworn never to reveal † † † † † †
(you might say under pain of Death) † † † † †  
the precise details of my escape † † † † † †  
but if I close these eyes now † † † † † †
l can feel her femme-fatale straddling my chest † † † † †  
icicle fingers teasing my hair † † † † † †
the darkest chill of her breath...††† † † † † †  
† † † † † †
And each night I beg forgiveness † † † † † †
from my undeniable God † † † † † †  
certain I've sinned my soul away † † † †  
in both this life and the next † † † † † †
embracing hell through lust-- † † † † † †
just to savour that sexy grin Death wears † † † † † †
come the moment she beckons † † † † † †
with her beautiful shining face

Take Me Home

Is that you, my dear?
My sweet angel of death?
Goosebumps start to rise as you draw near,
so close I can feel the warmth of your breath!
Is it my time?
has it finally begun?
I will not fight you,
for you have already won!
I will not beg,
nor will I plead!
I only ask for your mercy,
as you do the deed.
I will abide,
and give you sweet surrender.
Wrap me in your arms so tight,
embrace me ever so tender.
I can imagine my smile as I slip under
I have waited so long
for your eternal slumber.
Please don't let me down!
My breathing is now so shallow,
you barely hear a sound.
I wonder how I will go.
Will anyone miss me,
Will anyone even know?
Who's life will be affected?
If I mattered to anyone,
making me aware was something they neglected.
Probably lift a few burdens.
Why not want to end things,
stop all the hurting.
I wonder who will miss me when I'm gone?
Hurry my sweet angel of death,
hurry, please! I'm ready to go home!

Mother Grim

 
Been hiding underground again have you?
Out all night
with your scythe
skulking around
in that old black cloak
with the oversize hood
seeing those no good chums of yours
War
Famine
and Pestilence
Mark my words they'll lead you astray
all this reaping
reaping
reaping
It'll have to stop one day
There's no future in it
It will never do any of you any good
And look how thin you've got
why you're nothing but a bag of bones
It's about time you packed it all in
got yourself a proper job
found a nice young lady
and settled down
You could have been anything
a doctor
or a lawyer
even a dustman would be better than this
If you're not careful to mend your ways
you'll send your poor old Mum to an early grave
then you'll be sorry when you do
and what will the neighbours have to say about that
They'll be talking about us forever
Is that what you really want
a lifetime of eternal shame??

Hail to Love

Cock is dead
He lost his luster
To smokin' woman :)
named Hailey
She took him
Like there is no tomorrow
So they moaned with delight
Until the end!

As I cross the river

As I cross the river,
my mind slowly unfolding,
I gaze beyond the horizon,
towards the endless flow
of the waters that freely go.

I wonder through time,
as space hits enduringly
beyond the ripples of my soul;
the pain numbing me is such
that I don't care about my fall.

I spread my arms in sacrifice,
as my tears pour like rain;
no more fears of shallow lies
to accept as trust or shame.
Death becomes my best friend.

I will never cry again.

Void

Void! Encapsulated between
the labirinth of my sorrow,
precious reminder that today
is no different from tomorrow;
temporary scabs covering
infected wounds as life escapes.
Useless murmurs of hope,
words, toxic as the lie they deliver;
a blade, a sweet poison, to fall asleep
never to awake again.
Useless remorse in the aftermath,
I fear not death but dying,
alone as I have lived;
isolated in a crowd, ignored.
I seek no further.
I shall return to the stone.

Begone

Begone from this peaceful home
For time ticks by slowly here
Restless spirit not content  
Until it confronts itís fear
 
Launch into distant future
Donít stop to admire the view
Keep racing towards the end
Death is all thatís left to do
 
No need to enjoy living
For living is for the weak
Instead create high drama
For attention that you seek

Paint your face to be grotesque
Dress yourself in midnight black
But be warned: If you give in
To Death, thereís no coming back.

No reset

Hello
You okay?
What are you doing at my place
Wanna stay up late
Talk life Discuss death
Coffin nails lock me in
Go to bed
In a Hole
in the ground

If I was louder
Iíd be heard
I wouldnít be In this grave
If I tried harder
Iíd dig my way out
I wouldnít be in this grave
6ix feet under

In my hideout
Forgot My Zoloft
Hiding here forever
So long

No reset
Donít complain
Donít resist
Accept this
Or Donít exist

I wish I was louder and Heard
Pushed harder than the weight of the earth

Enough

i will die

therefore
i am alive

if
there is life after death
then
i am not dead in the next life

does this
go on
indefinitely

life
after
life

death
after
death

i am alive
therefore
i will die

is there one
final death
after which
there is
no more life

and

if that is the case
is this my last life
or my first

for now

i am alive
therefore

i am not dead
and that is enough

Brotherly Love

I couldn't sleep, again
I chose to read your words instead
I could hear your voice,
 by the rhythm of your thoughts,
 flowing from your scribe,
Calm and baritone

Your brotherly love,
evoked emotions in me I had cremated
long ago

Lighting a cigarette
 gave me an excuse to pause and think,
thinking on why I can't feel the sorrow
I need to cry, hard and from within the deep
Maybe then I can sleep

My grief is still froze,
crystallized and was unfairly brief
Too exhausted to breathe
 in the aftermath

I never had the choice to breakdown,
grieve properly through the stages
that would follow my soul
I only felt the hole left in the hollows,
Alone

Everyone around me shattered,
I had to be the rock for them to lean on;
as I would point them to the sky,
hoping I could teach them both to fly

I really didn't want to write tonight,
sleep deprived, staring at the screen
One day, two flights

 I'm not a smoker
 a stale pack I hide in a drawer
for the grief
When I need to feel the pain
 It feels good to burn my throat
Shallow minded am I

Her wings are heavy
Entwined over mine
Her span is wide
 My feathers are stronger

My twin and I
One soul
I was the stone
She was the sculptor of
our spiritual heritage

I must say this,
your words felt like home,
like brotherly love and the smell of coffee

Now I am bound to read your words
 Frightened by the similarities
I tip my hat in gratitude
 as you tip yours
 I did notice you left open
a doorway,
 where I may go,
to heal my mind
 
I am glad i wrote tonight

Thank you for becoming a poet
