A Field Long Outdated – A Poem

Years go by, leaving us with nothing,IMG_1401
Heroic blackness,
Cowardly Veils.

He smugly sat speaking:
Tales of war by veterans of sedation,
Fables of triumph by victors of none.

But there were no larks,
No singing,
No bravery.

Where was he when the war had come,
Where were you when he fled to home.

And left in lore and legacy:

You are forced upon his quarrels.
You inherit his foe.

We lived,
We felt dawn,
But there was no sunset to glow.

We are All Soldiers – A Poem

IMG_1339Hear the heart beat drums of war.
Notes to end,
Our lives too poor.

Head the heavy masts ahead.
Stab the sunrise,
Less be dead.

Litter the lines with more than men.
Hold your breath,
Don’t count to ten.

Sail the stars as fears take flight.
There will be none,
no lovers tonight.

Seed our sorrows in ruins of some.
Their hearts are gone,
The war is won.

Future Incandescence – A Poem

When our monsters run dry,IMG_2067
And the fire and the smoke is nothing but purified ash.
When the long forgotten moon no longer sits as high;

Its factory suggested glow,
Flickering as it cowers low in the blacked out sky;
Censored, for the stars are offensive.

When our leaders and liars aren’t one in the same.
Maybe it will all be seamless,
Maybe we will all go to war.

Our bodies will not protest,
and love ends as nothing, but a forced emotion.
It’s feeling lost by the test of time.

When we have nothing real left to speak against.
That is our demise,
That is our saviour.
