Silence

Silence

Immortal this feeling
Of denial and time
Inebriated in hope
Drowned in crime
One wishes silence
Golden caked
In purity it wakes
Spews forth in noise
Words fall free
Outside their poise
Barriers fall and
Time stands still
Once this flood erupts
No returning back
Pristine removed
Silence corrupts

Epitaph

Epitaph

This morning
Awoke to not your tossing
Stood to not help you dress
Walked to not pour your coffee
Started to not fuss about the mess
Today
Read to not get you the paper
Rinsed to not dry your dish
Moved to not adjust your seat
Jumped to not relieve another wish
Tonight
Laid to not help lift you to bed
Put away to not sit and cradle your head
Sang to not help you to sleep
Lie here to not check your heart beat
Some day
I’ll believe it was your time
I’ll know we peaked the long climb
But each step today broke me so
I loved you today the same
As when we met that lifetime ago

The Crucible

The Crucible

Veritable change
Ignites this humble implement
Some ask
Others push back
With all their might
Until they stop
Some are born here
Others wake wounded
Broken
Changed
Their crucible
Forged in acknowledgement
Poured out in a request
“please help”
