Literature
a little ways away
your glass eyes ignite like the spheres
still as dark as the sea where they fly
looking down into me and my fears
full and honest your heat they belie
you're the colors i'll never abide
still as dark as the covers i weave
you're the inside to match the outside
full of all i've been blessed to believe

Literature
the greatest show on earth
unity creased like a page
the rage of man often increased
in that moment the lives in us cease
and released from our crimes we stand tall
there's a moment just after the fall
when all consciousness drains to the sea
where each drop of us begs for a wall
to rebuke as we take on the beast
mourn us not for the name we are called
but for all we left false and untried
for the guilt of a life lived enthralled
for the rivers we swallowed uncried
in my wisdom i knew not at all
how the sun would turn black o'er the stage
where hanging before you i sing
and folded i lie in my cage

Literature
divided
winter's an unending hole
clawing through time on its way
to the future fall already stole
and here i am stuck in today
i saw your eyes looking away
and knew you were already gone
it's a humorless game we all play
at the feet of omnipotent dawn
i flow down o'er a merciless weir
lower still than i thought i could be
yet unmoved as my neck is laid bare
and the stones are the last things i see
:iconSS116:SS116

Literature
turn
pour out my wisdom and pain
until only your light can be seen
remove the fog i love and walk through
take time away from me
i hide my face
what now can i gain?
your devouring hand is yet gentle
my own lie in vain
put a heart back in me
where now only consequence lives
not for my glory or name
but for the depth of your word

wait
how quietly we see
a future not yet won
neither eager
nor deceived
an unlived life begun
hardened but free

Literature
politic
i want to be
able to die
but i can't
and the world
has ceased
turning
and stopped
at a slant
but my eyes
will keep
searching
to find a
way off
until then
i'll still cover
my mouth
when i
cough

Literature
weeping
i'm in the ocean watching something move
perhaps alive; unconscious just the same
no more than wind can hope to be down here
the current takes my hand
i look away
it's quiet but deep voices travel far
the better to be heard by those who fear
a way is made to peace by whispers weird
i shouldn't trust my feet on deeper sands
than man has walked and lived to dream of it
light fades upon the coral and the stone
who spew their shade on bones their fathers carved
each grain of life surrounds uncommon flesh
still deeper things than this my hands have found
and touched the pitiless, but not by choice
:iconSS116:SS116

Literature
great again
roots torn up and tossed like winnowed grain
what's left survives against the screaming tide
still purity flows on through muddy vein
stumbling through the poison they abide
bereft of truth they know they are alone
the light calls out and for a time they hide
but man will come to know what man can own
his roots will dig in deep against the fall
when sisyphus begins to love the stone

Literature
old breath
i've prepared myself to die
i've gathered all my coins
a veil of fog contains my cry
a dust has gathered in my loins
i've weakened in my elements
grown thin within my mind
naught remains my eye resents
but what my dreams designed
soon i'll find what knowing means
i'll settle where i lie
nothing heard and nothing seen
forgetting all but i

Literature
mask
believe me
my pride rests
in deserts
crossed by feet
dreading each shadow
i raise
my glowing face
above that sea
and stain the light
each moment casts
on me
throat laid open
silence spilling free
a little curse
the weight of which
will sink us

Literature
caught
flesh of my flesh
chained to a weight
of old feathers
caught by the pins
that hold your smile
in place
subtle
sublimely oppressed
effaced by the hands
you've been shaking
when a consequence
falls from the nest
then suddenly
collars are blessed
and my fever's
a storm-battered ship
afraid in the eye
of your grace

Literature
immediate
this monster has a hold upon my wings
a time unfit for futures filled with song
unwhole, my body's caught up in the strings
i, fragrant, fall apart, my days yet long
flatter me, you black unfettered eyes
take hold of me until my breath is cold
scream at me your silent coughing lies
take part of me and test me while i'm old
the coward on my shoulder's growing bold
glutted on the fat of lesser kings
i pray this rusted hand release its hold
let sleep compel my eyes to stranger things

Literature
gray sea
bear with me
cast your spell
as wrong as i am
all seems well
mountains away
as near as the sun
whisper
don't say
uncertain you've won
look back
through the fog
at the moment
you've gained
and smile
for the sinner
your glowing blood
stained
for the trees
you believe in
the fields
and movement
the silence
and stillness
their yet
unknown yields
listen my dear
hear what i can't say
i'm moonlight and darkness
you're life, breath, and day
and there might be a way
:iconSS116:SS116

Literature
victory
peace is creeping in
the endless combat
at long last
has ended
sleep
a stifled grin
your house half fallen
dice left uncast
a ship with no mast

Literature
hel
old beyond aging
alive beyond time
you hold me close
fierce in your embrace
i love you
more than my own self
and far more
than the sea
your conquering kiss
an untamed storm
your furious gaze
a song to me
in whispers
your violence the fall
that lifts me up
a day spent dying
thirsting for your breast
i am absorbed
by the smoke of your anger
you bind the unbending
in you their vigor pales
as do i
as i lie
deep in you
a lasting pain

i was surprised to notice recently that my previous journal entry has been viewed some 900 times. who is actually reading this garbage? knock it off!

i actually have a lot to talk about. my life has been interesting, and getting more so. 


i'm going to keep it to myself though. not out of mistrust, or contempt, or egotism. 

only because i don't care. this world is a graveyard full of ghosts.

You are very welcome for the watch and the llama! If you see my art, and enjoy what you perceive, mayhaps you'll offer me the favor of returning the watch! ^-^

P.S.

Though, I wonder why you felt the need to point out that we are different people. Were you trying to be rude on purpose?

we have fundamentally different worldviews and you seem to be more emotionally expressive and open than i am. there are other differences of course, but those are the two main things i noticed
