Poetry Corner: I Didn’t Ask for Yesteryear

I didn’t ask for yesteryear, the objects of the past they seem so near Perhaps when I look back they are simply further than they appear What is it I am clutching close, is it the rope of a hangman’s’ noose Not the indentured servant, nor cotton picking slave, but fattened goose When you wait… Continue reading Poetry Corner: I Didn’t Ask for Yesteryear

Poetry Corner: The Ghosts of

The unexpected arrival of once thought forgotten memories The sometime gentle wafting strokes of once lost joy soothing todays brow Or the searing broken of betrayal that blackens every petal of everlasting night The pearls and turns of yesteryear remind us of those we lost And the future tries to promise balance in friends not… Continue reading Poetry Corner: The Ghosts of

Poetry Corner: The Passing of Pitch and Toss

The ghosts of the past they don’t talk to me much anymore Futures lost don’t write me with possibilities that could have been Today, it forgets me, a candle with no need of wisdom, it soon shall flicker   Time moves on, I am an artefact of memory, no longer needed Friends like time, lost… Continue reading Poetry Corner: The Passing of Pitch and Toss

Poetry Corner: What Was Once A Chore

Poetry Corner: Charon Don’t Care

When the ferryman comes you better have the change in your hand There ain't no admittance to the poor man Old Charon don’t care about your demands and your old life is rapid is fading And the boat is leaving, leaving all your riches behind They ain’t saving your soul like you were saying And… Continue reading Poetry Corner: Charon Don’t Care

Odd how the emails come in your maiden name Like the old days so many years ago Of course, now it’s not the same Tears have passed and the toll of time Took us apart and closer to the grave   Without conscious choice, not by deliberate thought I am reminded of the age when… Continue reading Poetry Corner: Maiden Name

Poetry Corner: On Purpose

Miles away in the present of the rain Drifting slowly from the consciousness I would say I have gone insane   The ghosts that haunt me keep me company Old friends and demons who is confused Devoted, timeless forever with just me   Stepping forwards or is it back, I never know Logic and intelligence… Continue reading Poetry Corner: On Purpose

Poetry Corner: Isolation

The isolation of confusion, The solitary of truth Our dimly lit existence I don’t know how much time is left Every second is a moment of forever And yet it may be never   It feels like the rain It doesn’t feel like pain The numbness of persistence What matters doesn’t matter Could the lights… Continue reading Poetry Corner: Isolation

Poetry Corner: A Second Takes Forever

I’m lying here on the grass Just thinking of the time that’s past Wondering how to make hurt rhyme Taking up too much time And second feels like forever   But forever never comes inside my head Just like all the words I could have said That would never made a shred of difference It… Continue reading Poetry Corner: A Second Takes Forever
