Poem – Velvet Wings

Ignorant to passing time
Reality strikes its deafening chime

Unspoken words pass between

I and you, my darling queen
Lay your weary head to rest

With your arms across your chest

Now it’s time to close your eyes

Whisper your final goodbyes
Let me go, we’ll both be free

Cross the wasteland, past the sea

Find the path to heaven’s light

Break away from endless night
Embracing tears of bitter pain

Falling lightly with the rain

Out of reach, I hear your song

Alone again, I sing along
Let me go, we’ll both be free

Cross the wasteland, past the sea

Find the path to heaven’s light

Break away from endless night
From the night…

I watched your velvet wings take flight

I never saw you so alive

So alive

I watched your velvet wings take flight

I’ll never ever say goodbye

Never say goodbye
Life has ended, you have won

Death befriended, pain is gone

Fly away into the light

Crystal clear and shining bright

Close your eyes for final rest

Meeting among the blessed
Let me go, we’ll both be free

Cross the wasteland, past the sea

Find the path to heaven’s light

Break away from endless night
From the night…

I watched your velvet wings take flight

I never saw you so alive

So alive

I watched your velvet wings take flight

I’ll never ever say goodbye

Never say goodbye
I let you go so you’ll be free

Cross the path of darkened sea

I watched your velvet wings take flight

I can never say goodbye

Never say goodbye

Poem – Regret

Regret flows from the depths of my soul
With the strength of a flood

I have held these gates shut for too long

And though tormenting, they should not be stopped.
The thought of your anguish

Even as I write to you now

Stops my heart cold

As well it should
What I see in front of me

Is a painting of our love

Its most thoughtful brushstrokes

Mottled by hurried abstraction and inattention
A person who had not seen this masterpiece created

Might think it to be refuse and pass it by unknowingly

Letting be obscured the deep beauty of its many scenes

By layers of the tarnish of mistreatment
But as the painter

I see beyond the dark smears

To recall the hours that I attended to the details

And wonder how I could let it become so discolored
The painting that took me my life to create

Has lost its divinity in my careless treatment

And even if I were to refine it

I fear you would always see it as it is today
So today I paint a new masterpiece

One inspired by the muse of respect

A work that you can love through our old age

One that you will look to each day for inspiration
This one will take some time

As I want my brushstrokes to be carefully placed

I need to move steadily to ensure that this time, 

My art represents my dream
This is my opus

Don’t judge me on my past works

As I have never before had so much skill and inspiration

And never before have I wanted to please you as I do today
With you as my muse

I will paint for you a lifetime

A portrait of devotion and friendship

A panorama of passion and admiration
All I ask is that you gaze upon it with an open heart

And you shall unquestionably love me again 

Poem – Suicide

Sweat drop
On top

Trigger pop

Written note

All I got

Hang knot

Body rot

Suicide cop
I hope not

Cry out loud

I think not

Body’s hot

I am too proud

I am loved a lot

Roof top.

Suicide bride
Heavy vain

Your game 

the same

Trapped shame

Gone insane

Who’s to blame

Red stain

Suicide rain
Addictive dope

Needle hope

Poison taste

Drowning beer

Gun shot

Painless fear

Powder nose

Suicide dose
Razor blades

Flame stare

Pain fades

Sadden tear

Candle wax

Smoke dare

Burn down

Suicide flare
No bluff

No name

War zone

Innocent prey

Soul blown

Cry all day

Set mind

Suicide bomb
Terrorist 

traffic jam

Plane jack

Head strong

Help protect

Customs wrong

Dead plot

Suicide stop
– – – 

stop the suicide
