man in the mirror

Mixed

There’s no point in waiting…

I know you won’t come

The Strongest man in your life…

Is the one you’ve become

When things don’t go quite right…

And you’re left all alone

The Man in the Mirror…

Puts up a Fight

Sometimes it’s hard…

To rise where you’ve fallen

To Care Just Enough…

To answer your Calling

But what choice do you have…

Silence… And Cold

The Man Right Inside You…

From young… To old

Paradox (Can We Not Bring Flowers To The Living)

This is a difficult moment for me…

I have no peace with Mortality

Twenty years ago I faced a Gloom…

A time crushing

Bone breaking…

Fear of Doom

But since I’ve lived my life so easily…

Optimism

Hope…

I did Breed

And now faced once again…

With reminders of the end

I do not call these Blue Skies Friend…

Instead I’m left with Quiet frailty

These gentle bones…

Break willingly

I admit though my wings might carry me through…

This common thread

This ‘Life’s’ to do…

Before I might have said

Live your Dreams…

Hold the ones you love

Meaningfully…

And though I still feel 

And know this to be true…

Now I’d add

Bring Flowers to the Living Too

That’s Not Me

I admit…

I’m hooked on life

Hooked on love…

Hooked on strife

That’s Not Me…

Ready to move on

Surrendering hope…

The end of my song

That’s not me…

I promise you this

I’m not at peace…

With what we’ve got

That’s not me…

We are one

Collective conscience…

Collectively gone

Some are ready…

I am not

I never thought I would be…

I never thought I ought

That’s not me

Change

Posted in Poem, Poetry, Writing on May 26, 2016 by darkjade68

se

CHANGE

Separation, From Destination

Relinquishing the voices that come up against you

Darkness of Choice…

Discomfort now guides you

These feelings are new, and unpleasant

But seem to serve some greater purpose

Even if that purpose is nothing more…

And nothing less

Than peace

I am abandoned from misguided thoughts

Left alone to fall to the soft

It will be New and Unreal

I wonder about it a lot

Change is not just an adjustment…

Or a simple… Choice

Change ‘rearranges’ you

Like loud traffic noise

I am tired…

But not ill

I am in control…

But still…

Uncomfortable

Release

Posted in Poem, Poetry, Writing on May 21, 2016 by darkjade68

green water light

Release

Confrontation…

Voices unseen

Darkened Vines…

Wrestle me

So much Light

Truths

A moment down…

Left on knees

It will be alright…

All will be as it will be

But at this moment…

No one can Rescue me

Torn skies…

Slammed on ground

Blood separated…

Breath unbound

Shaken, you Run…

Two more appear

Doorway in view…

But you can not

Breathe

You give in…

It twists, pulls, has its’ way

Teeth grind…

Grey’s so near

When you are down…

Who brings you back up

Fills your heart anew…

Never gives up

Burdened by something Old…

Blind to what is New

Are you simply giving up…

Or lost in your Misery

Release

Down

Posted in Life, Poem, Poetry, Writing with tags on May 9, 2016 by darkjade68

down

Down

When no ones around

What happens to the billowy clouds…

Light seems to darken

And sadness comes round 

Is it Chemical…

Emotional

What’s really going down…

Things seem ok

Yet…

Inspiration… Motivation slips away

Down is allowed this much I know…

What is the point of this toe to toe

We can not be in good company all the day…

Nor eat, or induce good feelings in some other way

We are alone, and that should be ok…

But instead the aching begins

Holding melancholy at bay

Perhaps I’ve spent too much time alone…

Facing abyss and voids eye to eye

I thought I was doing better than this…

But when I’m alone, I’m starting to miss

You
