Downfall

Downfall

Inordinate schemes
These tales we tell
Lazy memes
We speak and sell
Lost on none
Fakery aside
We list our strengths
The truth to bide
Wishing well
Our false we sell
Some rise or stand
Come to play ball
Trusting their truth
On beck and call
I wish was me
On all and all
My truth as one
And not a downfall

Wildfire

Wildfire

I’ve picked clean
This starlit sky
Given to me before I die
In wanton pleasure
I burned these gifts
Treasures so pure
Thrown off cliffs
In arrogance admire
Alone and hungry
I stare oft no inspire
Once a forest
Now only a wildfire

Sparrow

Sparrow

Narrow the trail
Lost to the eye
Other widely paved
Fertile drawn nigh
Hidden secrets unknown
Naught exit bemoan
Strength not built
From the simplest of trial
This heart treads narrow
Tempestuous aisle
Wandering with purpose
Paths fraught in peril
Hope unending
in flight as the sparrow
