freedom? paint me a picture

at dawn
the zombies rise
their dreams forgotten ~
stumble ‘round without a thought of
what they’d rather do…
instead of
being undead
their time and bodies
claimed the while they slave to make
a rich man’s dreams
come true.

at night
when lights go out
they finally slumber ~
dreams they wander in their sleep
the only ones they own…
tomorrow
always forfeit
to another
since borrowed lives require
a sacrifice
for every loan.

this hell
nobody else
could make them suffer,
somehow they have taken on
succumbing to a lie…
to wake
to their mistake
and change their fortune
can’t be as hard as disregarding
freedom
til they die.

out of mind

Unsettled
Not quite agitated
Pacing to and fro…

A sense of
Subtle aggravation
Only madmen know

Is writhing
Through a corridor
Too narrow for a breath

a silence
Of insanity ~ or
Unaccomplished death

Dissecting
Every passing thought my
Mind would entertain

Infecting
Any kindness like a plot,
While i abstain

A witness
Like a marble statue
Stony holes for eyes…

Lifelike
Even if unmoving,
Sentient

If not wise.

almost

almost the scent of autumn in the air
a gentle breeze ran fingers through
each tress of hair that ghost-like rose to kiss
the promise of the bliss of cooler days to come
almost believing, almost
until the blistering sun

it’s time!

hidden neros fiddle while they
pull their puppets’ strings
raking in the trillions while we
pay for everything
wars to kill the poor among us
young and old we bleed
not for glory, same old story
poverty for greed.
 
rome is burning, still they haven’t learned
from days gone by
staging false flags to enrage us
murder’s alibi
they are few, tho we are many
anytime we stand
jackboot military-like police
at their command
 
television spews revisionist
agendas views
fear and other opiates to dope us
nightly news
masses that might kick their asses
poison kool-aid drink
passion gone they don their yokes
forgetting how to think.
 
blazing haze of rhetoric they
raise another war
but what if we woke up en masse
asked what we’re fighting for
sloughed the shackles off our minds
refused to play along
would their castles keep suffice
to stand against the throng?

somehow

I gather my thoughts
while dew gathers in sun
sharing a moment
of infinite now ~

basking in ponders
that too soon surrender,
like as the dewdrops that vanish
somehow….

The vase

Never far from reach I keep
a shattered crystal vase
its jagged edge reminding me
of things best left behind ~
of what once was.

but I shall wield it
like a knife,
the weapon in its flaws
to ward off further robbery,
vouchsafe the fading memories
I keep ~ of what once was

raw

like wound half-hidden by the gauze ~
the thoughts that plague my mind
unkindnesses of ravens seem,
because ~
unlikely healing come, at least
enough to form a scar.
just ebon nightmares soaring through
the holes they leave
behind

morning, but nothing…

Van Gogh clouds in a Monet sky,
Giger creatures drifting by
Looking down on me.
Bamboo thoughts filling moonscape mind,
unforgotten dreams unwind;
Nothing here to see.

Rainbows
Hiding in the brushstroke grey,
As I listen to the nothing to say
Taunt me to seek them out
Somewhere between hope and doubt.
But I
Know better than to play their game
Cuz everything will stay the same.
So I just sit as tho
A bas relief I told you so.

Dali start to a Rockwell day,
Nothing sudden along the way
Inspiring me.
Mozart soul in a Ke$ha world
Surrealistic wings still furled
Not flying free.

Morning
Idles in the “nothing new”,
Keeping visions from coming true,
Pokes fun at those who try
To soar to a different sky.
Listless
Til at last the evening comes,
When the promise of tomorrow numbs
I’m but an unhewn stone
A sculptor’s chisel never known

higher truth

17952947_444542312550341_7785673627746009267_n

as dawn unfurled in partly clouded sky, ~
and painted heaven with a crimson hue, ~
the thoughts that came to mind were twice as high,
as cloud or soaring hawk, or shards of blue,
those random bits of sky that hid behind,
the storms as they dispersed and took their leave,
great peace infused each corner of my mind,
as tho an inspiration or reprieve.

and so before my day could quite begin,
with all the many things that must be done,
propitiation for whatever sin ~
was granted by the glory of the sun.

and tho we’re told tis not for joy birds sing,
a higher truth exists in everything.

greater bliss

The sunrise is subdued in early morn
Only pastel hues on passing cloud
Light the way, another day is born
We waken from our dreams and doff a shroud

Can sleep be other than a sort of death?
See how it mimics dying as we lay ~
Is not it quite the same, save for the breath
That vanishes from us upon that day?

Which dawn will be our last, we cannot tell
We go about our day oblivious
Hold onto the illusion, neath its spell
In hopes another will be promised us.

Our only consolation maybe this
Souls have the destiny of greater bliss
