Simple Muses

Diligent Decades

Eyes glaze as path fades

Fingers hold fast

Mind seizes

Chains rattle before I vanish

Heart rewinds the reams

The still frame memories

Course through every nerve

Searing, pounding, forcing

Wrecked body to knees

Three decades demanding


To every vague muse

I scripted, portrayed

Harmony or disarray

For the thousand

Glaring eyes

Searching soul

For the passion


Now displaced

By guises

Assumed to fulfill

Their needs

Momentary measures

Meant to heal

Oh, portions were real

Inside lines

Somatic symbols

Mumbled words

Meant to mend

Faded eyes

Lost souls

Sundered hearts

I told you

“I’m an apparition!”

Here for the moment

A lease on lines

Just to help you release

“Is that not enough?”

I guess so

Though plagued

By perpetual sundering

Of how many

Paused, then passed

In seconds like these

I let go

None could handle

The real me

Beyond the lines




In that moment

I paused.

Returning to a place

Where I was a boy, innocently

Floating in azure waters

Revealing the depths of your soul

In all your magnificence

I let your wave rock me

In delicate hands

Soothing my heart, mind

With hushed whisper

That tickles bare body

With accepting embrace

Of my presence

Taking me so far back

So far away

To a place I long to stay

 If I lose myself in such a way

From captured pose of silken eyes

On first look

Who’s to say I will be able to speak

If ever we meet

I may lose myself

Entirely to your trance

In the first glance.


Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul

The Darkest Fairytale

I dreamed I could fall asleep.

I am Lovely and Lonely and I Belong Deeply To Myself
