Disenchanted Heart

      (tag poem, edited)

    The showers capture everything they touch 
drop by drop they wash away the traces
of tears wept in memory of  embraces,
aching, lingering long, erasing trusts...
The lyrics  are dismembered from their  song.
    The scents of roses missing from their blooms
he echo of your name pervades the room.. 
The heartcan only bear it ,for so long...

    Winds wait outside the window wooing  words
 trusted to your lips, conveying love
words preying on what I was dreaming of..
the sweetest  poem, my heart had never heard...
This disenchanted  heart  now hears no sound
except these raindrops...falling, on the ground.

 Secret                                 (tag poem, edited)

  Such sadness in those eyes
  so serious, so solemn
  As if a secret waited
  that would escape as a tear...

  One solitary sigh
  escapes  and breathes, so softly.
  The warmth of an errant word
  you dare not whisper aloud.
  Shackled by  that promise
  spoken  hastily  to please;
  swarming in the wrecklessness
  of a well intentioned deed...
  Silent words mouthed, barely
  to a pale unhearing sky-
  sweet release, from agony
  of an aching, bursting heart.

DreamsbyDay: Soul of Insanity, you trip over lies
DreamsbyDay: Lies meant to satisfy, Lies meant to trick.
DreamsbyDay: Trick me today yes, but not tomorrow...
DreamsbyDay: Tomorrow I'll be wiser, than the fool you see...
DreamsbyDay: See though the fog of  mind of confusion.
DreamsbyDay: Confusion is power to someone like you.
DreamsbyDay: You take the joy out of  loving and giving
DreamsbyDay: Giving  myself to you , cost me , my soul.

Household of Storms

Household  of Storms
(tag poem , unedited)

DreamsbyDay: .Household  of Storms
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Below the surface,something , seething.,
DreamsbyDay: waits to penetrate the seeming calm
DreamsbyDay: Insidiously , patient- biding time
DreamsbyDay: as if, for it ,  the clock did not apply
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: The smiles and forced respectful words  remain
DreamsbyDay: while stagnant  air and attitides collide
DreamsbyDay: the sweaty scent as  nervous laughter fades
DreamsbyDay: and near eruptions  forced back down inside
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Tip toe and whisper as the days turn cold
DreamsbyDay: despite the heat that bubbles in the blood
DreamsbyDay: existence so surreal as to be bold
DreamsbyDay: dams of pain for holding  feelings flood...
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: We gather  and we pray  over our food...
DreamsbyDay: pretending that we function in this mood

Somewhere In The Summer Wind

  Somewhere in the Summer Wind
  ( tag poem, unedited)

DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Somewhere in the summer wind, it's drifting
DreamsbyDay: Past the places I once called my own
DreamsbyDay: Down forgotten paths now overgrown
DreamsbyDay: towards  the shoreline where the fog is lifting
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Some where  in the middle of a daydream
DreamsbyDay: I can hear the calling of the gulls
DreamsbyDay: I can feel the ocean as it lulls
DreamsbyDay: To that place that hovers "in between"
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Somewhere in the distance is tomorrow
DreamsbyDay: Looming like a lazy august sun
DreamsbyDay: beckoning  all that I should become
DreamsbyDay: When I can release this harbored sorrow
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: Somewhere in the  summer wind, my tears dry
DreamsbyDay: Some where and someday , I'll say "goodbye"

Spring Snow

 Spring Snow           (tag poem , edited)  
  Listen to them
gently tinkling,
encased petals
in icy song;
unaware that
winters trying
to keep their souls
buried too long.
They struggle still
above the frost,
sweet colored specks
peek through the snow.
song of spring
upon  cold leaves
  an urge to dance-

  a need to grow
Listen closely
as the breezes
whisper secrets
to  frozen  trees
They bow gently
icy fingers
  pointing towards
 sights beneath...
Colors speak  as
snow is falling.
under springtime's
early  warning.
Cold last breath of
winters harshness
will disappear
tomorrow morning.

Inner Demons

Inner Demons               ( edited tag poem)

 Walking  beside myself,
 shadow  and form -as one.
aiting upon   sunset
feeling the chilling come.
 clenching my hands up tight,

 night ...and night ,after night ...
Longings that mystify,
 taunting  satisfaction.

 Drunk without partaking 
of any libation.
Forever trapped in flight..
night ...and night , after night ...
aradox . Sanctity.
 Purely sweet evil.
 So sacred. Unholy.
 What pain these eyes conceal
 with each taste of delight,
 night ...and night , after night ...

  Walk in my shadow; dare!
  Please take deliberate  steps.

  Don't join me unaware.
  Do what your souls suspects.
  Offer me your invite...
  night ...and night , after night ...

 Secret creature of need-
 Craving  intimacy.
 A  perfect demon seed , 
 adoring treachery.
 Enjoy  your tragic sight

 night ...and night , after night ...

But That Star is No Longer Wished Upon

     But That Star Is No Longer Wished Upon
  (tag poem unedited)

DreamsbyDay: It was the second star to the right
DreamsbyDay: that beckoned and caught our attention
DreamsbyDay: the one of quaint fairy tale origin
DreamsbyDay: too obvious to even mention..
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: It fell like an errant meteor
DreamsbyDay: it seemed like a wayward dream falling
DreamsbyDay: it trailed  a sad tail  , and forevermore
DreamsbyDay: burned a strange... sight for recalling
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: The star that burns twice as bright , as they say
DreamsbyDay: burns half a s long , and so..I wonder
DreamsbyDay: if this was exhaustion or destiny
DreamsbyDay: how many wishes were plundered..
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: enough with the rhyming and reasonings
DreamsbyDay: No wishes originate there
DreamsbyDay: adults with good sense, don't believe these things
DreamsbyDay: those that do, have the sense, to not share...

.DreamsbyDay: So a star falls to earth , and the mind reels
DreamsbyDay: into fantasy taught in our youth
DreamsbyDay: naivete stands with our age ,it's revealed
DreamsbyDay: we may learn, but we never know..truth...
DreamsbyDay: .
DreamsbyDay: So the fantasy dies in the moonlight
DreamsbyDay: and all of the lost boys are gone..
DreamsbyDay: and I may  fall into some hearts wishes..
DreamsbyDay: but that no longer wished upon...

Autumn Path


Autumn Path  (tag poem, edited)

  Life travels circle wise , and wisdom free
bombarding sense with sensitivity.
Despite all efforts , vision's are half seen
reality a half world, in between..
So harvest comes again to warn the cold
chasing summer  with it's windy hold
Paths we've walked but don't anticipate
seasons know the cycle... and will not wait.
I'll hold last gasps of sweet October here 
holding the breath within my hurried heart
I'll practice dancing with the golden leaves
pacing  days as if I have no peace...
One with the autumn sun and winters warning
paths of another chilly harvest morning
make me cry to a wayward thought of springs gone by
I find I exhale and some's a sigh..

ABC's of Enlightenment


ABC's of Enlightenment 
  (when asked to pray, I wrote this)

Antagonistic Angels , relinquishing anger to anarchy
Bereft of Souls, between worlds, beaten and  broken
Catastrophically   cast into the chasm  of clarity....
 Drifting deeper into degradation 
Every breathe evolves you into

 G-d goes with grace and gives
Hearts that hold him , hope of heavens  home
In  interventions and invention , individually ideal-
 Jury and judge  joined on a  journey to
 Kill your doubts and keep Kindred hearts

 Many men mention meanings , making mistakes
 Noting nothing worth knowing now..
 Omnipressence overpowers
 Prurient power proves a peril.
 Quick questions and quizzical quirks defying

  Sanctity and sacred sentences
from Torah, tomes and tales of times
  Underrated and misunderstoodand useless until
  Visions visit and vex inviting  investigation...

 Xenophile exiled from xanado.
 Yearning to yield to destiny
 beyond a zeniths zone.

Any Day Now

      Any Day Now     (tag poem, edited)


  Inspiration wanes, wrangling  depression
and my  aging aching body complains...
aspirations filter through the mundane
I fear the night times of introspection
In dappled days of sunnier moods I 
wandered aimlessly in euphoria
Moods of late border on hysteria
seems all I ever want to do , is cry.
Well meaning friends all sympathize and pray 
for me and all my  sad situations
hoping for my sanity's salvation
 I tell them I'm okay..
Yesterday seemed much worse to me some how
  Guess my mood will improve, any day
