Together

We started the journey together
Where it would end
Was anyone’s guess

A thousand miles we have trodden
Betwixt the ups and downs

We’ve seen hills turn to mountain
And mighty rivers run dry
We have encountered many sorrows
And helped to wipe many tears along the way

Towns have grown into cities, right before our eyes
And yet again many towns have become ghost towns
Over run by twigs and shrubs
Places where children use to play
Have become the hangout of thieves and vagabonds

Young limbs become aged
And pearly black hair has mushroom into silver fox gray
Eyes as shape as an eagle in flight had I
Now I stumble over an alligator at rest
Unaware of the danger

A crowded house once full of noise
And where children never ceased to roam
Is now a silent castle
And now I sit in the hallway
Thinking that I am alone
Oblivious and
thinking that the good old days
are just memories and it too has passed
And so has my beloved.

We Will Scream Together

We Will Scream Together short poem

Managing his guilts to seduce the nocturnes he left the gray area, surging with a wandering death on the half broken stairs – before a closed gate was put on the pages, he was trembling like toothed quaking aspen. The
