  • Evicted/Invited? (Part 2 of 2)

    But then I hear a tiny sound

    That stirs my mem’ry, brings me ‘round

    To former joys. I used to know.

    “Dear Anna? hi, I’ve missed you so!”

    And I once more do hear that voice

    I’ve loved so long, and I rejoice,

    I’d never thought to hear them more,

    Outside …

  • Evicted/Invited? (Part 1 of 2)

    The cellar room I once called home

    Far out of sight, a site alone

    Cannot remain a haven now:

    This mouse’s nest now fears the plough

    My life’s disrupted, cleft in twain

    Will ever I find home again?

    I am uprooted, limbs are pruned

    My misery no more entombe…

  • Finishing Line

    The end I seek, I cannot see from here

    I do not know exactly what I’ll find

    Or even if I can suppress my fear

    To persevere through storms within my mind

    -

    I started this progression far too late,

    Had spent most of my energy before

    I realized my sat, unste…

  • Sestina: The Dashed Line (1/2)

    From peak to lodge, too tightly stretched the cable;

    It glinted in the dying light of fall-

    Fresh sunset. The lone worker doused the light;

    As stars appeared, wind moaned in its deep pitch,

    With breath of ice. And in that lofty height,

    The string of cars …

  • Emotional Upload Allelujah

    I have all these feelings now, rolling around

    Like the chunks in a hearty, thick soup.

    They’re some of them toxic, and some quite sublime

    But the mixture’s unstable. I haven’t got time

    .To feel all of them, blent in a group.

    .

    So I’ll thank you to take th…

  • Dog Kettle Door

    My hand was burnt on the kettle

    Just as it began to boil

    My hand was bitten by a dog

    I’d always thought was loyal.

    I stepped on glass in my bare feet

    Where it was safe before

    You said, “I’m always here for you;”

    Then you walked out the door.

  • Outset

    It's time I made a different kind of move.

    I'll go pursue my int'rests and forget

    That I have duties here. I seek a diff'rent groove

    Than I have heard before. There's promise yet!

  • Imbalanced Thinking

    You tell me to shine,

    but as soon as I do-

    all I hear is whine, whine, whine..

    Tell me once and for all,

    what you want me to do,

    This request is small.

    My hearts on the line,

    and my mind is a racin',

    Could you give me a sign?

    Calm me,

    like you used to …

  • Too anxious to fix it

    I'm lonely, I'm lonely

    I'm drifting away

    If only, if only

    Friends weren't far away.

    I've wandered much longer

    Than I thought I would

    Forever I ponder

    If my choice was good

    I want so to reach out

    And touch someone's hand

    Before thoughts can leach out

    The…
