The Light That Shines...



How sad it is

That sometimes

We only see the light

Which shines

Within the other

When the colours of our world

Are dulled by their exit from it

Crazy Times...



They used to call us lunatics

But now that's not PC

And these days

You're underachieving

If you haven't got an OCD

I can't concentrate

On what my doctor says

'Cos apparently I've got ADHD

And my mind's just a mess

Of  unparallelled stress

Thanks to PTSD, so says he!

Weight's been a bit of a problem

Doc said that was all in my head

As he glared into my eyes

Said your BMI'S fine

Whilst I flushed at my HBP's strength!

And that's when it suddenly hit me

The cause of my problem was plain

After years of frustration

And personal damnation

Abbreviation was really to blame!

The Land of the Lost...



Where you walk now

So once did they

Their shadowed souls

Now mark the way

To where your shape

May one day dwell

In the Land of the Lost

Between Heaven and Hell

My Tears...



I cry not

For the emptiness

Of this day

Nor the loneliness

Of yesterday

My tears

Are for the company

Of tomorrow

Acid Bath...



Love

That acid bath

Of emotion

Stripping away

Sanity and sense

One loathsome layer

At a time

Curious Moon...



Beneath a curious moon

The children play

Midnight shadows

Masking their decay

The Fallen...



No more the beauty

Of another day to see

Nor the warmth

Of summer's breath

To brush the cheek

Only the mournful thud

Of soil upon the grave

And loved one's

Grieving harmonies

As they weep
