I have got the key
to change myself and the world

Your little habitat.
Your bed in the dark alley, can no longer
Feel the Sun,
But can see the sally,
Of an army of raindrops, marching towards the ground.
I see you peek around, with your whiskered face,
towards the playing ground.
In a mirror you look, tucking your drenched hair with grace,
like an adventurous book,
Steps taken from a deer, with feet trapped in heeled boots,
You glide down the alley without fear.
You vanish at the turn; a magician's trick,
That I would never learn.
As for me, my Universe ends,
At the little piece of road I can see;
Whereas you had taken a sharp bend,
I remain hidden, as hidden as can be.
But beyond it is paper white,
With little drops of great delight;
At times though, they leave a despairing wake,
All the way to the mountain lake,
Whose surface now burns with misty fumes,
No mountain in that mirror looms;
Nor can it, till it stops to rain,
To relieve me from this quiet pain.
And much beyond is but lost to sight
The FallDevil’s mirth, Devil’s mirth
Laughing as we sin from birth
Evil crimes, evil signs
Wicked, wicked, hateful times
We are dead, all are dead
In Hell our souls sink like lead
All fall down, all fall down
Kill your friend and drag him down
Putrid words, stupid words
Fly away like brainless birds
Upon burning coal we trod
We tell ourselves that we are Gods
Right now, if we went to Hell
How would we know we even fell?
Chapel WindowThe parish waits now,
the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls;
cobwebs align them
like the membranes of memories,
the cut of a jewel in a broken window,
gather in a mesh of strands
a new Mosaic.
There is a cemetery,
my eyes seek out the sermon,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as rays shear the shade,
heave a new glow in the candle box,
pool in spots like emerging ghosts
as if heaven were simply a dimension
where life goes on.
I like chocolate, and I dislike cliches. And, I like to read poetry out loud.
"He's a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn't have a point of view
Knows not where he's going to
Isn't he a bit like you and me?"
I only write my poetry here. Not, many of my stories. Unless they be for the purpose of participation in competitions.
I'm writing a new novel, please check it out!
