“ I Am The Colour ” ~ of human disorder ~

 

I am the colour

Of human disorder,

That shades the stay

Of man made suffer,

While held at bay

Be cause of such pallor,

In ominous way

With spurious cover,

Feigning fair play

To thus be so coloured,

With doubtful recover

For fated mankind,

Bears not colour’s assign!

“ Errant Knight ” ~ an untimely spirit ~

Once errant knight
I journeyed bold
To the edge of life,
An untimely spirit
On a world in plight
Now in endless dark,
With anxious mind
Renders so eager
To leave behind,
Seen odious times
Wants ne’er more suffer,
These ominous flights
They’ve made of our world!

“ In A Dream ” ~ nightmarish ~

 

In a dream

Nightmarish,

Holds initiate

Of scary scenes,

That exacerbate

Vile screams, 

Meant to alarm

A fertile mind,

As to expose

Ominous time,

Of foul bellows

Would so extend

To reach beyond,

Such eerie sounds

Dream begs to end!

                                                                 ode to a child I knew

“ Reflection ” ~ of man in decline ~

 

I look thru panes

In timeless settings,

Of windows framed

In their reflection,   

By spirits fashioned

Of unworldly landscapes…

 

There I detect

A man, tho but a spec,

Reflects in decline

A wary face

That could be mine…

 

As I look o’er

Thru delusory panes,

I can now see

That empty face,

Of wanting features

Be man’s reflection,

All but erased!
