Doorway

do you see a door

there is a door, I saw it

it is in my mind

(2-29-12)

 

pathway to the sea

my toes dig into the sand

I hear you calling

(2-29-12)

 

this secret doorway

seen only by Queen’s decree

contains life’s sweet dreams

(3-4-2012)

Doorway

in the silence of this hall

I hear only one thing

the soft rush of the sea

as it meets the waiting shore

I tilt my head in longing

and breathe the deepest sigh

then spin myself in a circle

arms down at my side

I step onto the warm sand

from the doorway in my mind

I sprint towards the sea

leaving fear behind

I splash into the water

fall onto my back and float

the sea pulling me further out

white clouds floating serenely by

I float until the stars say hi

then calmly step back through the doorway

into the silence of this hall

to smile

and be at peace

Voice of the Raven

Memory breeds in me strange loneliness. ~ William Herbert Carruth

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Of what I was before

Now I am not one to boast

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Travelling up the green coast

Tap-tapping on death’s door

I think I’m dead and a ghost

Of what I was before

I found myself at a loss for words

On that brisk December morn

Something was wrong with my vocal chords

I found myself at a loss for words

They must have been cut with a sharp sword

That soothing voice I will mourn

I found myself at a loss for words

On that brisk December morn

~ to be swallowed whole by this monstrosity ~

Butterfly at my window

Look not upon me with sadness

For I am still cocooned

tiny crow feathers

lying on a barren path

bring color to dust

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

to see a rock show in the snow

it’s the best show i had ever seen

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

I watched the snow fall through the screen

thinking fondly of E.A. Poe

so I caught a train to Aberdeen

to see a rock show in the snow

a silent heart

hears only the things

it’s life whispers

as it passes through

its clear blue veins

(2010)

i have no face she says

this wicked embrace it ties

my hopes and dreams they lie

in wait for me to claim them
