Spirit World

Comes the day
that thoughts die down
eyes opened
still are blind

Rising of throng spirits
of the past
piercing my heart
piercing
again and again
poisoning the present
into a pool of grief
to the bottom
of my soul

The pain, the intense pain
of deeply loving in vain
To be abandoned
make them banished
to the gaol
of my memories

Yearning for
a voice in the storm
a voice
that is not there

Frightened like a child
fumbling for a hand
in the dark
Putting my ear to the ground
and scanning the spirits

I feel SO alone
and let the tears come
one
by one

Water outside-
fire within-
Still the courage
for a new life

The morning comes
broken heart
heart
broken

Feeling like shouting:
I am the bride
and still separate…

Will I ever
enter the circle

Space

Staring out the lens of the telescope

beyond the dark, silent, night

Tossing comments of solid ice,

far, fast, passing Earth by

Viewing the constellations of stars,

the planets, the sun

Flaming Red Rocket roaring through space,

near, powerful, pulling a stunt

Following the ringed planet attracted to its vibrant,

dust, of beautiful colors

Slowly pulling the bright stars into,

the never-ending darkness of black holes

An army of firing meteor showers charging past the Milky Way

And one lonely meteorite,

Burning a path so rare

The darkness of space goes on forever but,

Only do the person on the other side of the telescope

Capture the beauty of space so ordinary

Romance with Loneliness

you give me that feeling again like you always do your always there to remind me of you
and like the disease that make me sick your also ingrained in me your what makes me tick. i’ve tried to run and tried to hide find someone in whom i confide but still you drag me back to your cold embrace socially awkward is a hard thing to face. different, scorned and cast aside my thoughts shift I
withdraw inside a soul on the fringes that withered and died. no hope for today and no hope for tomorrow a familiar drone is this bitter sorrow. this
agony knows no relent this longing for more and the need to vent, the will to go on nearly spent. You want to scream you want to shout but in the sea your voice drown out happiness it seems is a reasonable doubt. But i Drag my feet and keep pressing on night they say is darkest before the dawn. Greet the morning with a “i wish i died” sleep at night to escape the pain inside pulling me forever down into your abyss such is my romance with loneliness.

My Hole

inside its dark

just the way i like

its deep, making it hard to breathe

when i decide to escape

the walls are too steep

there is no one to help me

i’m too weak to help myself

my fingers don’t hold

so i’m stuck, in my hole

like always

Loneliness

Hate, anger, frustration,

How does one survive?

Confusion, distraught, depression.

Why even be alive?

.

Screaming, running, sobbing,

Everyone is swarming.

Yelling, crying, dying.

Does someone really care?

.

I sit alone now, all by

Myself with no one else.

They’ve all left again for good,

And I am once again alone.

.

I only have friends when

They need a place to hide.

Does that make them love me?

“My basement’s always open. . .”

.

I sit alone again and cry,

For the friends I wish I had,

But will never see.

All I get are words, in threes.

.

They speak to me softly,

Worry in their faces.

Do they care? Or is

Their worry worthless?

.

It hurts at the end,

As we all know, but

After that we don’t

Know how to go.

.

Dante once said that sinners go

Where it is dark and dank,

And in the hot below,

Down where Hades rules.

.

But do we know

Where people go

After their loneliness

Has got to them.

.

Why stay here where it’s sad,

When you can live happy,

No longer alone,

No longer afraid.
