Broken Angels

Broken Angels

They try to fly
above their rainbows
hued with blackness
hidden greys

Splinted wings
despairing sorrow
aching longing
for release

Brokenness
beyond tomorrows
powerless tears
shatter the night

Who will save them
from such torment
will such cries
stay deathly hushed?

Break the silence
shatter the demons
be the one to
save a life

The Embrace

Sustain my heart 

with a long good bye

watching you leave 

till your shadow dissolves

into tears of longing 

oh… not to be left behind!

 

Weary eyes that

give way to rest

slipping into dreams

of yesterdays 

oh… familiar caresses! 

from one who went before

 

Oh…what is this! 

new life of watching

waiting and wondering

a world where 

days are echoed 

with such continual emptiness

 

Pleadings with prayer 

oh…God help me!

release my body

from this prison

filled with little dignity

and racked with pain and sorrow

 

Respect of a life 

the sword is raised

shrouded by heaviness

of grieving and death

oh…arms are lifted!

as breath turns into embrace

Faith Beyond The Chains

No recognition in the brown of her eyes
i miss the touch of her voiced memories
one by one they vanish leaving me with sorrow
and her with outbursts fuelled by frustration

We continue to guess what may be the cause
surmise to bring small comforts
conclusions masked with bitter hurt
but there are no winners here at all

Endless hallways tiled with failed circumstances
fallen between the cracks awaiting fulfillment
become dormant part of the crumbled plaster
given up by the deteriorating walls of hope

Heavy chained to the demon
barred from reality there is no key
the lock corroded with prescriptions of
empty promises bandaids for remaining life

In Mourning

Shards of thoughts prick my feet
Onward I trudge through sorrows path
Confusion adds to the process of joys
My weary mind not up to the math

I complicate daily with minor details
Choking the life right out of the song
Existence is taken without ones permission
Is this the truth…did we ever belong?

Mistakenly I veer to the side of unknown
This realm is beyond comprehension
Believing in hope convinced in the faith
My soul is released of the tension

Little Brown Bird

Reading of “Little Brown Bird” from Kathy’s book, Pebbles and Blessings of Life.

Little Brown Bird

 

Footsteps ~ on the walkway

vibrations tremble the toy brownish feathers,

Unaware of tiny creature laying lifeless on the wayside

Approaching now I hesitate to look in fear there is no song.

 

Little brown bird where is your home,

did you stray and strife came upon thee?

 

No flight for thy wings upon the wind

Tears fill my soul,

I sense presence of taking, withdraw leftover life

I survey the hawk, it circles waiting for me to pass.

 

Little brown bird what was your song,

doth your melody linger in the trees?

 

Footsteps ~ on the walkway

a passerby, a glance at death,

No comment, I admire thought within, and keep mine tucked inside.

Steps now distance me from the crime.

 

Little brown bird when will it be,

conclusion of ending what happened to thee?

 

Little brown bird!
