“Dead Fountain”


I recall when it was new, marble base, crystal waters you could see through. That new in love, that  can’t get enough of. It would radiate in the sun and moon beams, growing momentum. Nothing between.

Giving life and besting the weather. Easily unsullied with a fraction of attention \ affection. A little love and hard times seemed to disappear. Just like they were never there, never seen. Getting back up, no matter how much you fall. At the ready; to answer the call.

No longer shifting, no reason to mingle. Heavy laden with dirt, moss and grime. It does not flow, much less sprinkle. Chipped, broken and beaten. No longer sharing, no longer giving.

A tomb for the ones with a lost for living…

“Lost”


 Streetlight

Wanting to be better
that’s why we see people like this
hash out emotions rarely spoken
hash out feelings off base from token
lost…
I wish I  was joking
I see walls being broken
using sleep to escape depression
using work to get out aggression
cautious walking in my “state of mind” library section
how did I end up here…
little recollection
lost in moments of self inspection
lost in the instances
lost in the seconds
is there any detection
searching for a glimpse of connection
lost in this warm Colorado breeze
lost in its seclusion
lost because I don’t care
is this getting somewhere
do the eyes on the other side
even comprehend with this share
lost
because I purposely left myself out there…

This is a reminder to myself. The mood captured in this is the reason I end every post with Stay Positive. The negative is always right around the corner…

“Point Break”

When did you arrive?
How did you arrive?
Did you boil?
Did you bubble up inside?
 
When is it enough?
How is it enough ?
Were you in denial?
Did it seem fake?
 
When did you learn?
How did you learn ?
Making the same mistakes…
Its become a choice.
 
Are you not the least concerned?
You say you hurt;
yet forward looks a lot like reverse.
You`ve been victimized…
By love and her cohorts.
 
So when is it quits?
When do you stop putting up with the shit?
When do you react for you?
take away its control
and get back to what’s best for you…
 
The act of only loving you….

Sometimes we have to shake off the negative people and things in our lives. Sometimes we have to ask  “when is enough, enough?” When will we stop hurting ourselves to possibly make the negative better? How about making yourself better?

“Need Me Some You”


Need me some you
tell me how can just a gesture
make the unspeakable premonitions
come through
ring true
R. Kelly in the back ground
my body`s calling…
for you
pleasure proportionate to me
Rest your ego
place your personage with me
as bona-fide as it can be
don’t tell me I cant have you now
just tell me when and how….

“Encourage”


Attempt your goals like birds at flight
with the absence of light
tunnels can come to scatter…

Everything becomes black
becomes one
no walls , no fraction
use knowledge as a candle.

Become the wick that burns through
thinking the thoughts  that bring light to you
someone is  always saying something
establish strength, flaws and foes
be the rising sun
make the cock-crow.

Cultivate
for what you reap you sow
all things need time to grow
differentiate
so you can spot a change in flow
re-iterate
do all the good things once more
repeat positive outcomes like before…

“Mindless Reaching…”


Thoughts revolving
attempt at problem solving
constant revolution
to bring about
solution
drift with confusion
relations, figures and facts
odds & ends
a way to always back track
foreshadow & what could have been
stitches in time
stitches in seams
disappointment with enlightenment
north flowing streams
forgotten things
dangles
from unattached strings…
