Trying To Hide A Fire In The Dark

Trying To Hide A Fire In The Dark short poem

Well and what is it I see in your eyes…
Is it love or is it desire…
What is it that keeps us from giving?
Into the fire, is it the fear of getting?
What you want then not wanting it
Anymore…well how long can we walk
These real high wires, how long can we
Go on playing this game…we aren’t
Children anymore so isn’t it about
Time to say just what’s on our
Minds…well they say the truth will
Set you free and this has been
Going on so long I doubt anything
Could possibly change…you’ve
Always had my heart and in my
Secret fantasy you just seem to
Fit the part, ‘cuz every time our eyes
Meet it’s like trying to hide a Fire
In The Dark…every time, every time
The keeper of time finds us here
Again and again, it’s Like Trying To
Hide a Fire in the Dark…A Fire
In The Dark!

Dark Force

Dark Force short poem

It gathers, always been here. Waiting within. Pushing to control. Finding a home in some. Fighting those it can’t control. Weakness, exploits, control, power. Power/technology enough now to control the world. Insidious it hides it waits for global domination. Fervent

As the dark night was rising The waves were also raising high and high as if telling me, they won’t let me take a sigh They raised and raised as if they were in a great haste and were treating

A classic combination, a fairytale foretold Dragons save princesses from knights in shining armor Their lungs behold a blazing anger, protecting your gold Convincing eyes always fool me a defining charmer Fire rages Let it breathe, listen to the crackling

Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud prose poem

Dark cloud looming. Moving slowly. But it’s there. Creeping in front of the sun’s path, dimming the light, inch by inch. Will it settle? Will it stay? Will it slide on by and keep on it’s way? Is there rain
