Hourglass Eyes

Time spent upon reflectionsLosses take their tollIt’s hard to face rejectionNegatives corrupt one’s soulWisdom is gained through perceptionWhen using hourglass eyes Chasing illusions filled with dreamsReality comes as the money goesLife is a circus of choices madeAs we fight to maintain controlEach action faces its oppositeUntil you have nothing at allPrisons made by our own [read more]

Broken Windows

Shopping through a broken window.Stuck behind a closed door.Empty stares; broken dreams.Depression bites some more. Hallways with locked doors.A window with a view.Faces change; events rearrange.Pick yourself up once more.Misperception with perception.Reality with a “kiss”.Thoughts arrange; paths change.Are you ready for more?Candy served after meal time.Stories told by the score.Phone rings; announcer sings.Visitors please use [read more]

We are all equal. We are all screw ups. We [read more]

Through Her Eyes

I often sit and wonderHow I must lookThrough her eyes Every morning as I awakenI am greeted with her unconditional loveWhich is always patiently waitingWithout ever making a soundHow I must lookThrough her eyes As I put on many milesShe is always by my sideWatching everything go byOh how must I lookThrough her eyes As [read more]

Every day as I walk alongMy path has run on for yearsTime waits for no oneAs I look back upon my lifeI realized “I do not recognize this man!”He has become a jaded old man Satisfaction in life is such an elusive thingHard to grab hold of what is unseenHow can you see where you [read more]
