“When the soulless go marching by”

Like lambs to the slaughter
Keep marching past
Dare you to think
Dare you to act
Hey there, You!
Like nothing more than tin soldiers en masse
Ironic juxtaposition escapes you
Forge on in your superficial lapse
For what is life without the endless hunt for shallow frivolity And the climb up the ladder of careless tasks?
There is nothing for you here, dear soulless scavengers.
Don’t stop for even a glance.
Keep moving, You, devoid of history.
For the mighty scars of time past
Meet no days of reckoning
With your silence echoing
Louder than any blast.

“The Careless Caretaker”

I dream of days
Far from here
Without anxious whispers
A place of stilled fear
Where night sounds
Are numbingly boisterous
And commitment and care
No longer taint what’s joyous
A rattled nerve
An eternal sigh
A sleepless night
Fraught with frightful sight
To be floating
Here and there
The constant caretaker
Finally free of care.

“Life on the Sidelines”

FullSizeRender (39)

(A new one…others here: Poems of Angst and Rebirth)


“Life on the Sidelines”

What draws us in
Yet, we flee
Crushing sounds
Of our falling dreams
No comfort in darting glances
As we strike unreadable stances
Cloaked in shyness
There is no warmth
Dragging mantles of loneliness
For our only support
And there lies our peace of mind
Sending solace to life lived
On the sidelines.


“The Forlorn Foragers”

And the heavens rumbled
Over cloudy morns
Displaced lives
Flung in winter’s wind
All tattered and torn
Memories billowing up
As those forlorn thoughts
Thunder down like summer storms
Foraging for serenity
From place to place
Finding nothing
As time slips closer
To being anchored
To all that is worn and defaced.

Birthday Dreams

Where birthday dreams
Are laid to rest
Tucked away
With other regrets

Times of sailing seas
And icy clouds
Forbidden now
Chained to barren ground

As the sun sets
Over frozen nests
Not even a hawk’s screech
Pesters my sleep

Under these foreboding trees
I rise to my knees
And watch the waning dusk
Drain the last of life’s lust…image.jpeg
