“Stars Hide Your Fires”

leave a comment »

Each star burns

Hot and Bright

From somewhere out

In space.

They look down on

Millions of worlds.

Their warmth wrapping

Like a quilt around.

Each is a soothing

Song to these

Eternally wandering

Disobedient Children.

Each respects the distance

Not wanting to crowd

But  give the space

To allow individuality.

Suddenly one of these endlessly

Singing Sirens’ temper flares

Causing a cosmic cataclysm

Charring all the little ones.

Spark of Humanity

Spark of Humanity

A swirl of lighted fire

And eternal damnation.

A scorching of skin

And a pecking of flesh.

A loss of all,

A gain of more,

A paradise lost,

But I will make my own.

A hand of hubris,

An undeserved peace,

The shell of a pagan god,

But I do exist.

A wanderer of earth,

A crippled wretch,

A diamond turned to dust;

Yet, I still have time.

A tormented spirit,

A rage against the light,

A life of uselessness;

However, I will be a god, again.

Love

Love

A clash of Promethean heat,
War of ancient time is fought
Between these woolen sheets.

Drops of sweet
Sweat, something unable to be taught
Until we two meet.

Cool hands, warm feet,
Bodies twisted, sin stained lot,
Compounded in a secret place, lies discreet.

But now the sleet
Has come and chills what’s sought,
And we don’t meet.

No more saccharinely sweet
Moments of being caught
Unaware of our conceit.

We held our time in sheets;
In each firefly we caught,
But the years are fleet.
Eternity is where we shall meet.
