Chronology

Chronology

This temple…
Will never be rebuilt
Its passages are permanently obstructed
There is no treasure to plunder
No wonders to explore
Leave it to crumble
To fall to ruin
One day…
It will be a wonder
The unpassaged temple
The unplundered treasure
But until that day
It is simply a building
A blight on the landscape
Perhaps we should
Demolish this temple
Give history…
A place to start

Idiom

Idiom

When making folly in the name of art
Do you reveal your hidden heart?
Like every child has a toy
That brings to them a world of joy
There is one place where troubles start

Jealousy plays a major part
Without which wisdom we can impart
It all seems like a hidden ploy
When making folly in the name of art

The story needs a brand new start
Take heed and remember, play your part
It’s a life that most enjoy
No one wants to maim, destroy
But when making folly in the name of art
Repetition reveals the darker heart

Don't Forget

There is no pleasure for the penitent
No savior for the just
A battered bag of bones
Lies beaten, bleeding and bruised
In shouting at the wicked
We oftimes forget the compassionate
Cooler heads cannot prevail
When ardent passion rules

Façade

Façade

We choose the face we show the world
And lose our grace as truth is hurled
Flung far and wide as others take
All our lives we live as fake

The price of love is what you pay
As all your friends you will betray
So we give up goodness sake
As our lives we live as fake

In the end the lie is real
As we forget how others feel
Then another heart will break
As all our lives we live as fake

mindless

I was going to write a poem today
But my brain did not want work that way
So I wrote these lines instead
To see where inspiration lead
And this is all I had to say

Cynical

Cynical

I think you think me a cynic
That I haven’t found the right man
But I’m not that much of a finick
He’s tall and handsome and tan
He’ll jolly but acquainted with fate
He’s eyes are grey, brown and blue
His hair is curly and straight
He’s skinny and fat and short too!
You can say I’m quite insane
It doesn’t matter to me
For when I met my twinflame
He looked anywhere but at me
So if, to you, I seem selfish
When you talk of fish in the sea
Remember that I HATE shellfish
And the mercury is poisoning me

Deadly

Deadly

Tell me of the howling of winds
That blow the bleakest black
Whisper of your darkest sins
God and I will hear of your slack
Whisper to me of cleverness
Of great deeds, of battles foretold
Don’t try to make it seem less
Clever or brave or bold
Remind me of your virility
Of women, of wine, of song
Don’t bother with humility
Tragic tales are often too long
Shout of your numerous possessions
Of which you only want more
These are private confessions
Not added to legend of lore
Adding substance to the world though
Would require much effort, a coup
Forgive the truly low blow
But that seems too much effort for you
The world must seem like an oyster
One that you wish to eat
You feel as though you’ve been cloistered
And lacking of anything sweet
Forgive my troubled verses
I see the ire in your eyes
Little effect have your curses
The truth will outweigh the lies.
