Just a Reminder All Poets

Such truth
you all have
spoken

now I post
lesser poems

aging slowly
inching towards
unknown heaven

shall miss this
Only Paradise
when up there
miserably

but I will only then
an air bubble be

so just remember me

all humanity
I always
loved thee

Supremely
Lovingly
Hopefully

even those
who once loved me

k i c k e d
me
'coz

God if there is one
knows
only humans can be hollow
not animals

Adam and Eve in Modern Times

Adam, my heart be broken
I fell upon your love
You fell upon mine, so it seemed

Two important lovers
Entwined forever
In a Myth

It was you who wanted me gone, you Bastard
You gave me the drink
I thought it was a Spritz

Alas, we are both still here
I’m not speaking to you anymore
We’ll never be famous now
Maybe just on facebook?

The end.

Swamp Hags for Candlewitch (Cat)

(an oldie, written in simple ballad form)
....................................................................
Swamp Hags

Above the swamp, lights wink and wave
“This way,” in eerie glow.
Beware! These false will-o'-the-wisps
Mean Death; he waits below.

I curb my horse . . . . Whoa, stop ol’ nag!
Oh, soon enough . . . too soon,
The swamp hags’ lair will come in view--
I wish for a full moon.

A Worm In The Apple...

Hey, HE says; not to do it
Eat that apple and you'll sin
Don't you take a bite
That's the word, from HIM

I don't know why, you can't
Makes no sense to me
Who am I? I'm just a snake
It's stupid, between us three

HE's not too smart about some things
He gave you legs and makes me crawl
You're not to eat this fruit
Says it'll cause a fall

FORESHORTENED DREAM

I wring the water from some air
then inhale a drippy breath
in a forest near as still as death,
a place I go but seldom share.

Poison ivey makes me watch my feet
( its deep green leaves do not like me)
yet I walk on although haltingly
toward a private summertime retreat.

Soon I shake sweat off my hat
and wipe it from my face
while traveling an unmarked tract
through a sylvan habitat.

The Sun is Setting

The warmth of a dying sun causes the moon to descend into mourning
it's light slowly fading, asunder the weight of the cold is tearing off of this fabric of ambiance that shelters our seemingly vivid reality.
The tears shed reflect its aura, creating somber shimmers of beautiful hope.

Lost is an understatement as I am drugged into ignorant bliss. Let the light eat the dark and generate sweet apathetic passion, with intentions melancholic at worst.

The Ghost

I feel like a ghost
Or maybe i want to be a ghost?
If i could disappear from here never to be seen again
Would i be happy?
Would they be happy?
If i was lost?
Vanished.
I wish i was a ghost
But am alive
Numb to all emotions other sadness and anger
I'm tired
Tried of living
Maybe someday i'll know what its like to be a true ghost.

Mute Question (Tanka Couplet)

How did they make love
which seed did make her conceive
was it truly fruit

the fruit could sate her hunger
not the one which makes a child

it is a story
moms and dads make us believe
to put us to sleep

while Eve did eat an apple
did Adam pick her cherry?

Eve’s dilemma “Minute Poem”

Hello Adam, it’s me your Eve
Please do believe
Never forget
So glad we met

My love so strong can never die
In truth not lie
I give my heart
Never we part

Forbidden was the apple ate
I didn’t know that it was bait
Such travesty
And tragedy
