Like A Ghost Passing Through The Night

Like A Ghost Passing Through The Night long poem

Moon of gold and a storm on the horizon
My cape like gossamer wings in the wind
Oh starlight, star bright first star I see tonight
Send me somebody to love before the reaper
Comes and takes my life…
Well I know it’s out there somewhere maybe
Just across the Tennessee River or the sierra
Mountains that touch the sky, where do I look
If there’s somebody for everybody like they
Say or does anyone really love anybody deep
Down inside…
Well I hear the sound of thunder and turn
Around in a flash of light, in tears my dreams
Are shot down again like an innocent eagle
In flight…
Well I try this spell, this magic potion and
Invoke the ancient spirits of passion and desire
Hell if I not meant to be loved in this lifetime
Then at least send me a lover who can quench
My fire well I’ll take one if I can’t have the other
Because I don’t know how much longer I can go
On all alone every damn night, I feel just like a
Ghost lost and confused and reliving the past
And who says it’s just one of those things ghost’s
Do at night but looking at this moon of gold
With my cape pulled up around me tight, I jump
Back in a flash of light as the thunder grows
Louder around midnight…
Well I feel like nothing but the shadow, the shadow

A silence on the night. The day fluttered quietly in whisper soft resonance, So many colours slowly dying Like confetti in the rain, And echoes touched each other, a reunion of themselves, As though they were astounded At their resonating

Watching the descent without god in an intelligent design. Come have a look at our adversary. The template offers an open hand. The culture of hunger in this urbane obscenity sitting on the payment making a motif. The giant strode

Kindled Night

Kindled Night short poem

Put off the lantern. I am waiting for the moon’s primal face. The lesser flamingoes were going to shed the pink color. Nude as a python, the kiss of pomegranates, kills by asphyxiation. I suffer in the hands of protests.

Ghost Writer long poem

One day a book materializes And floats off store shelves; The other side of earthly farewells, It describes and tells. Upon its arrival, It trends and goes viral; There’s no literary rival – Life’s AfterParty is the title. THE DEFINITIVE
