For You

For You short poem

Uploaded by Darren Scanlon


To gaze at the gleam
in your deep loving eyes,
across the heavens I’d soar,
to find the brightest burning star
to warm the sweet face I adore.

To you, I would give
the universe, entire,
just to see the smile on your face,
to feed the fires
deep within your heart
and the heat of your tender embrace.

For you, my love,
I would lay down my life
in a heartbeat, without second thought,
for the beat of your heart
drives the blood in my veins
and without your deep breath,
I have nought.

Like the burning sun
in the heavens above
you shed light
on my darkest dismay,
but more than that,
you’re the reason I wake
and give thanks
each and every day.

O You

O You short poem

A monster from a tree jumps and runs around the bushes to mate. A blank statement is issued. The system groans and collective pshyche fails. A stark silence for the food for thoughts. I sit down to meditate- to find

Battle For Madness

Battle For Madness short poem

I see it coming the end before the beginning. Of dawn. The midnight call. Impeachment was fragile. A satanic cult overwhelms the freedom of negation. Do yoy think we can move the tree of wisdom from the altar of ethics

Walking Into You

Tonight the nectar will be spread to tame a random tormentor. Black and white, I never saw my father weeping. Lonely he was. I am my own creation today weather beaten. Confession to – confession, unread. When the- storm was
