Things of Dreams

It’s like the things of dreams
flying over trees
touching the sky
singing lullabies
to the clouds that float by
Sun sets on cool nights
last golden touches
on leaves and brushes
Then velvet night’s sky falls
brilliant stars shine
but the moon outshines them all
Oh to touch each one
to wish on them all
until the night is done
To fish off the moon
to sleep in fluffy clouds
To rise with the sun
and watch the earth glow
To start a new day
filled with hope and love

Bathroom Stalls

Silent cries
in a bathroom stall
Cascading tears
like waterfalls
Pasted smiles
don’t reach the eyes
Perfect stoic face
set upon a crumbling base
Stare’s a blank
hiding whirlwind thoughts & emotions
every step she takes
hammers through her heart like a stake
An empty drive
makes an empty life
and slowly she dies

Battlefield In My Mind

Battlefield in the mind
negative thoughts fill my head
unsure if they are gut feelings
or unsubstantial lies instead
Wary, worried eyes
watch carefully and realize
all is not as it seems
In a world filled with crushed dreams
and selfish ties
the heart continues to buy
All the ugly lies
to eradicate all hope
leaving those only to cope
Instead of living a life of joy
despair is the ploy
to keep the people enslaved
never to freely reign

Inner Demons

Fighting off the inner demons

Eating up my soul

Trying to fill it with negative thoughts

to destroy the dreams untold

The mind battles on

Emotions drawn

Sucking up the light

I’m too tired to fight

So I must take flight

Find the joy within

Forgive my sins

Past regrets

Make my eyes wet

Wishing it away won’t do

I fall on my knees

I plead & I plead

To release me from this disease

A lesson I must learn

Which voice is right?

I must discern

Otherwise I fail

Success unearned

Purpose unfulfilled
