Random Musings

Random Musings short poem

Photo by CraigMoulding

Something lies dead here.
Something, that until yesterday
Was the source of all Beauty,
Whose warmth dimmed
Every shadow of loss
And sedated pain.

What it was, I cannot say-
Perhaps it was love,
Or an idea or a belief
Or just a figment of the mind-

Its absence evokes neither regret nor hate;
Nor does it remind
Of past sunny days,
An absolute presence
Is now a numb Absence.

Ah, clouds gather in the sky again,
On barren ground falls the rain,
Amidst a blurry turbulence
Thunder crashes upon
The rainbow of illusions-

Fortune and Fate indulge
In a game of knight ‘n pawn-
While live puppets lie in ambush
Waiting for dawn.

I Fell Random short poem

I am a freak sitting by a creek, listening to the meek plan a revolt. We are weak, we will sink, and we will drink what we are told. Peel back illusion, reel in confusion, do not accept manipulated intrusion.

Divine Musings

Divine Musings prose poem

In the most unusual manic-panic creep, Wildly lurking behind every corner, The Shadow was about to recover some ungraspable but always constantly desired idea.. A fantasy, a darker shade of fantasy: a fun fetish. Or, perhaps, could it be foolish

We Met, A Random Act Of Coincidence

We Met, A Random Act Of Coincidence long poem

We met, a random act of coincidence We talked, I figured we had some sort of relevance Never in my time has someone lent me an ear so much, trust me I commend your patience Small talks, random brawls, A

Random Sin

Random Sin short poem

In pinnate physicals, the thing, moves like a stark terror savagely. A primal fear takes over, because dead don’t speak. The bullet had passed through chest. Mutiny of dumb dandelions, lipless voices in the sea of madness. Search for a
