She once lit up the quiet sky,
Ever shining in her brilliance;
I, enamored by her mystic beauty
And her incredible resilience.
With a supernovae smile—
A vibrant glow upon her face,
She was the brightest of all the stars,
Kissed softly by the lips of grace.
I watched her come and go,
Like the ebb and flow of the ocean tide;
As the growing undercurrent,
Eroded at her sands of time.
Piece by piece she drifted away,
To a place I could no longer reach;
Until she faded from that misty bay,

The Truth, Unmasked
This growing cult of ignorance,
is becoming difficult to ignore;
with an attitude of indifference,
always ready to start a war.
When science goes out the window,
and compassion is out the door;
we’re left somewhere in limbo,
where rationale is nevermore.
Since climate change is a “hoax,”
instead of acting in great imminence;
they laugh like it’s a joke,
steady clapping at their insolence.
In the midst of a pandemic—
When everything is a conspiracy,
rather than listen to the academics, ...

The River Gorge
With the roar of a mighty lion
Ripping through her ebon bone,
You can hear the river cryin’
From great gorges etched in stone.
The scars upon her surface,
Carved by waters running red;
Through her scarlet epidermis,
By the mighty riverbed.
As harsh weather and erosion
Transform the rock back into sand;
With the sound of an explosion
By which many fishes swam.
Churning into motion, dust
From the rusty-colored land;
Returning to the ocean cusp,
From which it once began.

You invaded my space,
Taking over my world;
With astronomical impact,
You rocked me, girl.
You abducted my heart,
Probing into my brain;
And at the speed of light,
You drove me insane.

Everything is political—
In the absence of critical
Thinking, we’re sinking
To an all-time low.
This ships about to blow,
Diminished to smithereens,
To finish this bitter scene,
In the clinic of twitter memes.
Brainwashed by the media—
To never gaze at an encyclopedia;
We graze upon the book of face
As we laze into acedia.
Red, rife with opinions,
Led by lying little minions;
Where truth becomes diluted,
And the waters run polluted.
Deluded in our arrogance—

A solemn silence fills the air.
Our lips are ever still—
The memories still linger there,
But the love has lost its thrill.
Once upon a love anew,
We glistened like a drop of dew;
A withered rose now lay askew,
Within the garden which it fondly grew.
I stare into a false reflection,
Mirrored softly on the wall—
In this cave of recollection,
My thoughts begin to crawl.
I saw the writing on the wall,
As I gazed into the crystal ball.
For it was written in our destiny,
This forbidden love will never be.

I wish I could begin again,
I'd slither in and shed my skin,
to leave behind this withered shell—
but a remnant of my bitter sin.
To quell the pain of mortal man,
I'd sever ties with life's demands;
to embark upon a new endeavor,
and escape to Never-never Land.
If only I could start anew,
as a honeybee on a drop of dew,
sitting on a blade of grass—
I'd dip my feet into the blue.
Oh, and if I were a little bird—
I'd never speak another word;
I'd tweet the sweetest melody,
and fly so...

This dusty faucet is leaking;
My nails have all rusted,
And the floorboards are creaking.
My pages are worn,
And there's a hole in the wall
Next to an old rocking chair
That rests in the hall.
In the seat of the chair,
Sits a velveteen bear;
His buttons are missing,
And he's losing his hair.
With a corduroy vest,
Sewn onto his chest,
And the faded blue jeans
In which he was dressed.
He's tattered and torn,
All alone and begotten.
In the home he was born, ...
