The March And The Stream

Stream brought words
and Stream brought meanings
Through its aether were seen all beings
beauty revealed as cruelty
Core of grief as death of desire

Stream flow in depth unmatched
crossed a statue with no hearing
March came colder than invited
crossed a realm of two endings
Stream to a sea had started turning

Complete darkness envelopes the soul
There is no way to navigate through it
A battle you cannot win
Helpless, just stay where you are
Your mind is the prison
You won't survive
You're torment is yourself
No escape
No escape

The final chapter
the last few pages of hope
stripped from the spine
and thrown away into the wind

Darkness really sucks
I mean, it really sucks bad
I hate the darkness



Take haiku's?

"Gone"
My friend is gone.
He has been
wrestled;
wrenched;
torn from my grasp.
I have failed him.
And now my best friend;
my comrade;
my brother-in-arms...
is gone.

(...I wrote a companion piece. biggrin.gif)

"Lies"
Lies,
the voice whispers into my ear,
Your entire life
has been nothing but lies.

I struggle and I fight and I toil against it;
to my very last breath;
to my very death;
and yet it still whispers,
Lies, lies.

So I challenge it:

How,
I ask the voice in my ear,
How has this life
been a lie?

I remember my battles and I remember my victories;
my comrades;
my brothers;
and yet it still whispers,
Lies, lies.

It replies:

This,
the voice hisses in my ear,
This is how your life
has been naught but a lie.

And it tells me of my duties and my true loyalties;
where I stand;
what I am;
and it whispers again,
Lies, lies.

I tell it:

No!
I yell in reply,
I cannot believe this life has been a lie!
Yet I remember those years and my allies and enemies;
where I stood (stand);
what I was (am);
and then I believe its
Lies, lies.

Milder air moving through Times Square
Animals sleeping in their underwear.
Clowns busy on the seesaw
Animal crackers in the streets
The world may end today

Wounded clowns roam the darkness searching for solace
Their evil ever present to them all
Hungry wolves look to devour
To fill themselves with their filthy blend of colors
All one can do sometimes and turn the crank and hope the Jack does not emerge
Fear not the ones who hide behind these masks
The horn will soon honk for them

Pickled egg sitting on the shelf alone in a jar of vinegar
Rotting away like an old man in heat
Red as a beet but not embarrassed
He waits for someone to take a bite
Ending his long exile in solitude and suffocation

In the end I turned away, back
inside where it was warm while
the wind assaulted my home. The shutters
safely drawn, I started slowly up
the steps while the house darkend
with night and glowing firecoal fell to ash.

Not really dark but...

Time is time, we leave behind
We lose the things we never find
Do you know what I mean
Life is life, its not in the grand scheme
In the morning you wash your face
But in the mirror remains a trace
Find a way to break the spell
Life becoming just a shell
A days a day, its all the same
The way you lives a crying shame
Don't forget a man who's wise
Will have the vision to look through his own eyes

The sky went from blue to black.
She told me "Let's be friends."
I replied "Okay, I guess."
My life was never back on track.

I can't simply pull magic from a hat.
She told me "You're so cute."
I replied with a poem to her.
She read it, then said "What the hell was that?"
