I cannot bear this sadness

It tears my heart to bits

I need no cloak of gladness

This garment never fits.

 

There is no real contentment

I shall not rest in peace

I can’t forget resentment

Until I find release.

 

There is no happy ending

We’ll never meet again

No sense in my pretending

There’s no remember when !

The early morning fog begins to clear

I hear each leaf’s staccato on the ear

The wind whips through the clutter at the curb

While seeming to declare, do not disturb

The hollowed silence  of forgotten days

Now echoes through this empty canyoned maze !

I have often pondered how it’s done

How life progresses aft battles won

Or how one knows when it is enough

As the road runs easy, smooth or rough ?

Who makes a choice either high or low

When the winds of life begin to blow

And how is it one comprehends

If the paths we follow know no ends ?

Is there a voice that but few may hear

To whisper softly into each ear

Take care my child as the way is steep

And the hole we dig may be too deep ?

I sense the silence falling on my ear

What is this message that we cannot hear

Who reaches out because of these dark fears

I think the day of tribulation nears.

Awake, I know the morning will soon come

What is it we are all escaping from

There can be no true place of safety left

And that of which we dreamt leaves us bereft  !

 

PROFOUND ( 2015 ) 2015/10/25

I feel the silence all around

There is no movement to be found

No beating heart, no breathing sound

The quiet permeates the ground

The air is still, unused, unbound

The loss intense, the wound profound !

 

NO ONE LEFT ( 2015 ) 2015/05/28

Where is the dream of yesterday

Where has it gone it’s flown away,

It wasted by the road’s dead end

And lingered there without a friend.

The flowers withered on the vine

The fruit has shriveled in the clime

The world just seems so out of sorts

Our ships are moored in foreign ports

Hard work is there that none will share

I think there’s no one left to care !

 

DESOLATION ( 2015 ) 2015/02/15

A gentle thought tugs at my mind

Where is the peace we’re meant to find

Where is the joy life promises

With love for all the reward is ?

Who makes the rules and carries out

The consequence of fear or doubt

Who rends the earth or tears apart

A mountain top or broken heart ?

While all of this continues on

Is there a force to wish upon

Perhaps a dream we’ll never see

Or paradise that cannot be ?
