Running


My heart ruptures, bursting-red, every time I think of you, I am spent

Running away for the insular life, to grow like a crystal in the dark

We cannot escape time, the memory of friends we ran with

We were like baby turtles cracking through our shells, crawling to the sea

Broken and helpless in a world of predation, we did not enough to be terrified
           
We leapt with madness through the wild garden, driven by the biting wind

Trussed up by lust, like sacrificial offerings sent to the gods, cut open and

Rising on a column of smoke, chased by nightmares, we ran from the sun  

We ran through a maze, climbed over walls of thorns, lacerating us as we went

Tearing at our flesh, we tore each other apart, envious and confused

Every sharp finger indicting our ambition, each dream turned to ash and dust

            We ran from ourselves and found nothing in the end

            We were children of the seventies, Generation X

Wind


The empty harbor
Echoes of the forlorn heart
A wail of Sirens

Seagulls taken flight
Lift against the heavy wind
Driven from the shore

My breath escapes me
Icey in the morning mist
The fog clings to me

The wind, whispers lies
Fate blows cold over the deep
Ghost ships gone to sea

The broken mind swings
Raise the cup, drink salt-water
Laughter and madness

Lux Aeterna

A ray of light

Narrowly escapes

A closing door

Achieves expression


Warmth

Hope

Mystery


Illuminates space

Enlightens an object

Casts a shadow


Creates a question

Nothing

Heart, soul, and mind
These capacities escape me
Unquenched, unfulfilled

My loss of vision
The pursuit of knowledge, self
Unresolved, undone

Mystical and blind
Reason, profitless quest
Unendurable

I am alone, the
Center of a universe
That I cannot share

Philosophies speak
I may as well be nothing

Dreaming and waking
