08-26-16 Filling Blank Pages

You can fill your days
With acts of warfare or
You can fill your life
With acts of kindness

You can fill your dreams
With thoughts of hatred or
You can fill your heart
With peace and love

The choice is yours
To write your own story
Will you be the villain or
Will you be the hero

08-25-16 Sasquatch Versus The Space Invaders

When extraterrestrials arrived
The truth was revealed at last
As Sasquatch tribes emerged
From out of the deep dark woods
To defend our planet from invaders

It soon became clear 
That Sasquatch is our protector
The hidden spirit of mother nature 
Our defender and our Earth warrior
A magical beast with special powers

So the battle raged on for weeks
As Sasquatch destroyed alien ships
The space invaders were no match
They retreated back to the stars again
And Sasquatch vanished into thin air

08-24-16 The Memory Games

There will be another time
To tell old stories once again
And laugh about the good times
We have together every day

There will be time someday
To honor the memories
Of those we've lost
Along the way

But for now we've got today
To make new memories together
As we run and jump and play
Without a care in the world

08-23-16 Subtle Hints Of Autumn

While the heat of summer
Still has us in a stranglehold 

There is brief relief

As a cool breeze blows
From somewhere unknown 

There are quick reminders

In the scent of dying leaves
In earlier sunsets and later sunrises

There are whispered promises

Of a crisp chill in the air
Where we'll all be freezing soon

08-22-16 Dreams In A Wishing Well

Candlelight nightmare songs
Romantic destiny in the park
Struggle to regain some sanity
Time to sit and think for a while

Fantastic spaceship ride at school
Wishes for happiness do come true
Watching movies on Saturday night
Holding hands on our walk home

Hope those lightning storms dissolve
Look into your heart for the light
You are stronger than you can imagine
Don't ever give up on hopes and dreams

08-21-15 Thrown Away

Tossed out
In the trash
On the curb
Picked up
By a truck
In the early
Morning
Transported
To the dump
Buried alive

08-20-16 Halloween Superstars

A golden light
Shines upon you
From the cold hearts
Of mean old monsters

Up from the sewers
Under the full moon
Unbelievable visions
Unanimous decisions

Werewolf howling
Stomach growling
Flesh for feast at least
Fresh meat to eat

Shadow ghosts lurk
In the red darkness
Invisible to the eye
Fire in the night sky

Vampire charm
Curse of the undead
Another evil spirit
Caught going batty

Loch Ness Monster
Swimming forever
Frankenstein alive
Mad scientist mind

08-19-16 Stuck On The Subway Again

Stuck on a hot train
Down in the subway
Not moving at all
Sweat dripping drops

Late for work again
Trapped underground
Breathing in the stench
Sweltering summer

Sick passenger
Police investigation
Signal malfunction
Service disruption

Listen carefully
Music all around
Hear the sounds
Escape this reality

08-18-16 Hit The Lights

Under the surface
It all seems so dirty
When the lights go out
But on the surface
It all seems so clean
When the lights turn on

08-17-16 Road Map To Destiny

The journey began long ago
Into tomorrow then back again
Where all roads lead to destiny
Unpaved and unshaven

There is no wrong direction 
The stars have laid out the map
Plans are exchanged then they change
But the universe will guide you home again

08-16-16 Chelsea Hotel #424

Make no mistake about it
There is a dark energy here

Hidden in plain sight
Frightened by footsteps

Cold quiet of an empty room
Tapping off in the corner

It was here for them to take
And they were there for it to take too

Voices keep drawing you inside
Closer and closer to the flame

Further down the darkened hallway
Spirits are watching all around you

Demons are here to steal your soul
You thought they were your friends

Don't be afraid to talk about the curse
We're all here for the same reasons

Then the touch of evil comes
Run away and don't ever return

08-15-16 Gardens Of Broken Glass

walking barefoot
through gardens
of broken glass
with scar tissue
too thick to heal
soft silent wounds
with deep deep cuts
swimming in blood
gushing from inside
walls of a broken heart

08-14-16 Sleepwalking Underwater

Life moves too fast
Or slow it down a little
Drowning in clouds
Dreaming of clowns

Drift past sleepers
Slip slide under sheets
On the streets it grows
Frozen in timelessness

Photo captures images
Construction continues
While trees get taller
The world evolves
