Deception (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #1)   Leave a comment

Life is built from deception: from lies unknown; truths unspoken.
"I love you." "I miss my friend." "I'm glad I'm here." I'm so alone."
If we stop, and speak from our heart, wouldn't life be much better?

Framework (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #24)   Leave a comment

We are built from memories. 
Some are like mist, some crystal clear.
Smell or taste, a pleasant breeze.
Tears, or the song of a loved one.
Forgotten, just as easily.
But their absence is our framework.

Macabre Reminder (National Poetry Writing Month 2021 #20)   Leave a comment

Memories of suicides 
That don't exist, but almost did.
A macabre reminder
Of potential presents and lost futures
With a grin, they all coalesce:
In the final breath of a dying wave.
