I can only begin by saying I know I'm no poet. But that doesn't mean I can't try.

So for what it's worth I'll share the efforts.


The birds sing no sad lament

no tears for spring's sweet song

but of what is without regrets

for what has been is never gone

On unfurled wings of memory

through starlit night they soar

until gentle dawn enfolds me

until darkness claims no more

Until our smiles softly shared

are the only portraits to remain

and quiet days and nights we cared

yeild forth the truths they sustain

To have truly loved

if only once

to be loved but briefly

is enough

Post subject:  Eternity's Passage

Eternity's Passage

Each moment



through our hands

Returning as memory

morning mist upon the mind

So shifts

time's subtle sands

in a circle of passage

on an unbroken line

Post subject:  Faces



mere traces

of the thoughts that dwell within.


unceasing transition,

of what was,


might have been.


real truth,

remains hidden away.


only traces,

that which we choose to display.

Post subject:  Circle of Doubt

Circle of Doubt

Shadow cloaks light

A restless spirit

a wandering wraith

in the starless night


beseeching the silence

if not the answer


the question at least

A specter

in search of peace

Longing to cease


in eternal flight

No sanctuary awaits

to free the soul

from the bondage of otherworldly sight

No response

No wrong

No right

No way

to draw

the shadow from the light

Post subject:  Echoes of Silence

Echoes of Silence

In echoes of silence

as the final blast fades

there settles the dust of dreams

In a war without violence

death's stillness invades

choking the aunguished unspoken pleas

No quarter is asked nor given

from the camps of either domain

come only echoes of silence --- apart

So it is souls are riven

leaving empty shattered remains

upon the battlefield of the heart

Post subject:  Child of Man

Child of Man



ragged clothes and runny nose

Huddled for warmth in the darkened doorway

Through a prismed curtain of falling snow

the urchin's eyes are remembered best

Night unparalled


beyond bitter frosted winter chill

A place where only demons dance


not in Satan's Hell

but horrors of the mind


that have never known humanity

Post subject:  Web of Dreams

Web of Dreams

Woven with quiet artistry




A fragile tapestry

from doorway to eaves

Fierce in its delicacy

Each translucent

silken strand

a lifeline

to which we cleave



Holding fast

in the shifting breeze

Until swept away

with heavy handed carelessness

So casually

the beauty is undone


tattered and torn

only shattered strands

A broken web of dreams

Post subject:  Heart Song

Heart Song

The voice of the heart

sings in quiet whispers

No screams

of maddened desperation

It soothes

with understanding


to gentle trust


in silent peace

The voice of the heart is love

Post subject:  The Telling of Sarah Jane TEEN Suicide Theme

The Telling of Sarah Jane

The rain

doesn't trouble her

and the squalid alleyway

is of no concern

She's found her way

beyond the streets today

Though peace

is yet a mockery

in her glazed

vacant gaze


finds no resting place

upon dampened sheets

of crimson haze

The world

is oblivious

to this child's unknowing remains


indifferently on


clutched in her fragile hand

the reason she has gone

Two lines

a bitter fare

Tell it to the wall kid

nobody cares

Post subject:  A Wasted Life

A Wasted Life


A free falling emptiness

no freedom at all




Beyond the grasping reach

shadowed blurs

the sound and fury

of unknown life in unseen halls

A plunging spiral into depths without end


Down and away

Away from smiling faces

with dead eyes

The chittering



too loud laughter of clattering magpies

Strutting their worn facades

at a grotesque masquerade ball



in the ehoes of silent screams

Torn from the soul


to die

an unheard call


in the vacuum of vanished time

weighted shoulders


in the balance of deceit


finds each of us

a little older

Post subject:  Constant


Night fell

No moon

nor star

And I said

I am here

Day broke

A cloudless wonder

For me to say

I am here

Hope soars

in winged delight


in fatigued flight

It remains

that I am here

Post subject:  Visions and Voices

Visions and Voices

Ideals and beliefs

thoughts and dreams

Whether wisdom or folly

will nonetheless be

In visions and voices

of the sage or the fool

is a refractive reflection

of every man's view

Post subject:  Cruelty




Slicing away

A fabric

of wounds not forgotten


bloodied remains


relentlessly wielded

a blade without remorse


is a fine tempered sword

Excellent poems! :clap

I love your use of words and imagery. And I love the varied subject matter. Not a poet, huh? I beg to differ. ;)

Thanks so much for the kind feedback.

:D Having read your poems, I think it is pretty safe to say that I only try to be a poet at times, when I'm not trying to write fan fiction. :lol:

But it is nice to have someplace to share the effort and the kind words are much appreciated.

Post subject:  Some Limericks


There once was a girl named Teri

Who really was quite contrary

When she was told to go

She angrily bellowed no

And that was when Teri was Merry

There once was a fellow named Kevin

Who when he died went to Heaven

But upon arriving there

Found someone in his chair

So Kevin couldn't join his brethren

I had an old parrot called Sadie

Whose past was very shady

The language she'd use

Prompted me to accuse

Sadie of not being a lady

The artist's brush

a pen

Canvas of lined paper

A pallette

The spectrum

of human experience

Monosyllabic primary colors

Shaded hues of imagery

A portrait of the mind

The art of the poet
