Greener Grass

Stroll through the gates

Greener grass there

Meeting corners

Across

 

Fleeing winds of change

Glazed eyes closed

Sinful wearisome

Cheating

 

Fractured hearts bleed black

Staggered drunken pose

Hurting feverish

Chilled

 

Compose a letter goodbye

Signed within deceit

Lips sealed

Affixed

Mercy Me

Defensive posture 

Shoulders crossed

Shouting mercy

 

Flaming wings

Melting touch

Hidden sky

 

Headless wrath

Innocent eyes

Reality fading

 

Dreams shatter

Crying wounds

Shadow setting

Marvel

I sat down to marvel

At the world today,

It’s intricate wonder

And deceit

 

Mind boggles

At the way of us,

How we dance

And discover

 

Twitching toes

Filled with wanderlust,

Magnificent rays

Of sundown

 

I felt the hand of death

At my shoulder,

It whispered vexing

And vanished

 

Filled with hope –

Lungs collapse,

Here we are

Lost within each other

 

And I lay down

Marvel at the sky,

Forging dreams

I wonder

invisible darkness

he walks unseen in-

to his home,

chalk on his boots

leaping hope, pallet full of

oddly shaped furniture

where perfume lingers

 

pink flamingos

smile at the wall,

triangulating the distance

between him and her –

flaming wilderness

surrounds them

 

waltzing cameos of film stars

leave a cluster-filled joy,

we wander the path

less know, footsteps

barely discernible

through the ages

 

unable to see past the present

we people are a binary;

the number too basic

for one

 

Love, you are a vision

best left alone
