Happy Holidays!!

Am I happy

Am I sad

I am neither

I am indifferent

I stare straight ahead in defiance

With blinders 

Obscuring discernment

Never looking left nor right

Never lowering my gaze

I am unaffected

I am unfazed


I am indifferent




I fell out of the sky 

And landed in your arms

My head in the lofty clouds

You grounded me down


You opened my eyes

Lifted me up

Made me aware

Of suffering and scoff


You pushed me to the extremes

Made me believe

Took me under your wing

And made me ,me.


What’s in a date

Just a day,a number

A specific time of year

A reference point

For memories

Some happy and some not

A Child’s Prayer

Will  you not stay with me

Just for a little while

Don’t leave and go away

The world is big and I am afraid


Will you not stay with me

I don’t want to face the monsters alone

Would you not be my rock

While I break through barriers of stone


Will you not stay with me

In my darkest hour

When all else has failed

I need you to be my strength and power






The Pyre

Wispy columns of grey mists

Life gone up in flames

Streaks of orange and blood red

Enveloped in smoke plumes

Dancing and swaying in the wind

Burning long and bright

Rising into the heavens

Lifted on a prayer


Home you came

But not into my arms

Home you came

Times had changed


The tone of your voice

The way you smell

Were the same

Or different I couldn’t tell


Time and distance

Had weathered and strained

Only mangles of a love that was

Was all that remained

Time Machine

What do you care now

That I am sad and broken

You’re the past

You can’t be woken

The present is now

But only part of you is here

The future is without

Though you will linger on
