Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

What are you?

The Sun?

Glaring at me with your

Cold, fervent fire.

You are nothing but

A blot of dark

Light in the sky

Burning, but

Not feeling.

Please let me be whole.

Let me feel your chilling

Heat before I give into

My immortality…

Let me see the light.

Flight

leave a comment »

Soaring over the fields of

Amber heroin.

Leaving sorrows to the

Clouds of crystal meth.

Watching my fears falter

With every cocaine snowed treat.

Electricity fills me for an instant

As the mingling takes me to nirvana.

Suddenly, I crash down to earth

With beeping and screaming and

Flashing lights. Muttering visages

Think that they tethered me in time,

Clipping my wings to keep me from soaring

Away.

Upon My Leaving

leave a comment »

In my time of leaving

Do not fret for my passing.

Tis to another realm of space

That my ship longs to sail.

The carapace of night will

Be broken by the rays of saffron.

My heroic journey will

Have justĀ  begun.

I will travel to a land of

Plenty and peace.

No more shall this spirit

Feel alone, not alive.

Twinkle

leave a comment »

Every night
I look up and
See the Same
Stars that we named as children.

You constantly
Giggling wildly
Never letting me
Into the turmoil inside of your head.

A brilliant
Glimmer of
Radiance and
I’m too close to the epicenter.

I can’t catch
You as your
Parachute flutters
Like ribbons and you with the knife in hand.

Lethargy

leave a comment »

Lethargy

Waking in a

Concrete Box

Is not what I’d

Imagined life to be like.

Twisted into fetality,

Rising like a newborn

To a world of darkness

And distilled hue.

Icy stone

Moved with little

Struggle. Much like

The dying of the light.

Price of a Soul

leave a comment »

Price of a Soul

Once again, I walked with the devil…

He held me gently in his arms,

As I wrapped my white burden around him.

Slowly, he seeped into my veins…

Pouring through every fiber that is me,

Holding me, Consoling me…destroying me.

The light glimmers one last time,

Before it is swept into eternal dark.

The Devil seeps through my veins…

And the only pain I feel is the light leaving…

Dark forever, as I blink wide-eyed into eternity

“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

ButĀ  give the space

To allow individuality.

Suddenly one of these endlessly

Singing Sirens’ temper flares

Causing a cosmic cataclysm

Charring all the little ones.
