I peer into the dark and wonder where you are. Do you see the same stars in the sky? Is the chill of the night air cool upon your skin? I peer into the dark and wonder where, Knowing that the answer may never come. Advertisements

A Shot In The Dark

September 1, 2008

I wake with a start with the answer upon my lips. In darkness all is lost. I cannot even remember the question. Illumination is not a quest. Only a cold hard shot in the dark. Once again it has missed.

Go ahead and hide your face. Every facet is indelibly etched on my mind. Forever remembered. Forever loved.

Riding Out The Calm

July 13, 2008

Last night, a feeling of calm washed over me that I haven’t felt in a long time. I have grown to completely distrust this feeling. It seems that after the calm inevitably comes the storm. Perhaps the calm is a warning that the storm is coming and a reminder of the storms that I have weathered in the past and […]

Weary of mind, weary of body, weary of soul. I am left with unanswerable questions. You wandered off to paths that none should tread. Searching for treasures Finding nothing Losing all.

On Silence

October 27, 2007

I haven’t posted here in so long that I don’t know if I will be able to subdue my thoughts. I could blame not posting on life, for sometimes life does have a way of sorting through priorities. I could blame it on writer’s block, for sometimes words have a way of freezing up between […]

  Ever so softly the fairie muses whisper, ‘Create.’ But I sit in oblivion, writing doggerel, failing in my despair. Soft tales of love, psalms of hope, or gestures of peace elude me. Perhaps that is the way of things. To every life some rain must fall. So I sit listening to the rain trace […]

Raindrops And Moonbeams

April 30, 2007

  I have always had a hard time falling asleep. My mind often refuses to disengage. It keeps rambling on; regurgitating the events of the day and at times memories of long ago. I have grown to enjoy this time when the world is silent. The white noise of the air conditioning and the breathing […]
