aftermath of glory reigns, to
brittle shards of shattered chains,
cold and shallow, marble view,
dull and withered,
ethereal now subdued,
forever more in flames and fury,
grave mistakes and unknown misery,
hailstorms rain apathic words of
icy dismissal, insincere shame,
just a little, not an issue,
keep waiting, one day, maybe
light will reach the stars again,
maybe the world will shine,
not with war or strife
or instability, just
peace and prosperity, a
quiet rain, a little drizzle, where
rivers calm into little
streams of hidden thoughts, but the
tsunami rolls, covering the sun with
umber skies, wispy clouds with
vibrant glows of carnelian gold, and
whirling embers reduce it all to a
xeriscape of smoldering ruins
yeilding empty, broken stains, a
zion slipping through the smoke and pain
the abc’s of self love

best to be
daring to try
failure seems imminent.

is only natural.
kicking yourself does no good.
loving yourself is the key.
maybe you think that
nobody could ever love you.
oh, how little you know.
people you’ve never met
quick to judge, normally,
realize that you are amazing, and
seek to be around you. it’s
true; you draw people in,
votes for the
winner of their hearts.
(e)xamine your love now.
you have so many people
zesting to be around you.
you are perfect.
An aimless gaze
Causing chills, all
Entangled lies, done by
Fictitious scenes of
Giving love with
Inducing eyes always
Judging my moves
Knowing my weakness, then
Leaving me soothed
Mellow voice has
Never heard no
Omitting passion for a
Quietly cooed as we
Rest untouched, I'm
Sweetly embraced but
To stay is too much
Under your thumb with
Violence and yells, you
Whisper me under
Xanax’s calm spell
Your lips they tremble with
Zealous motivation, though you're looking at me... your heart is taken
A simple thing
But everything to me.
Can you see it as I do?
Destiny plucks stars from the sky
Ending the pattern, spoken verbatim
Galectic beauty, beauty in the dissarray
Hell below is jealous of the heavens above.
I wonder how people can ignore it
Jaded in repetition, routine
Kept in the dark, eyes downcast.
Look up. you won't regret it.
Map the stars, again and again.
Nature demands to be seen.
Our world is graced by our heavens above.
Perspective swirls in the pattern it makes.
Queer, the things we are given.
Rare, yet so common
Simple, but utterly complex
Timeless, but missed in the rapid world we are trapped in.
Ubiquity that never gets old
Veiled no more
We look up at our sky
Xenolith in our dismal world
Yank your sight from the ground.
Zenithal paradise is waiting.
Mind In Memorium
A mind is a terrible thing to inhibit
Between a rock and a hard place, most choose ego
Cognitive dissonance becomes a reflex…
Disregarding all that disagrees with our reality
Extremes often seem to cut both ways
Flaying those who look too closely
Gander into the abyss…
Hope it does not feel your gaze
Ignorance is bliss but must bliss also be ignorant?
Justification and rationalization are too easily confused
Keep that gaze focused inward, but…
Listen to your mind and body in unison
More and more folks feel alienated by the world around
Now is the time we should be looking to make a change
Once we open our hearts our minds and worlds will follow…
Priorities shift from new perspectives
Quality far outweighs quantity in regards to time spent living
Respite found in the present moment is hardest to see
Stillness can be the greatest of all struggles
Time may be relative but seems more of an in-law
Understanding how your mind and body communicate is key
Wondering is in essence movement…
X-rays of the world show curiosity is at its core
Yet here we are…
Zipping through life trying to shut down our thoughts rather than wonder...
A girl lived alone in the forest,
Beside a long river.
Caring about no one,
Dived in the woods like a loner.
Every single day she smiled,
Flying like a colorful butterfly.
Goes into a cave one day,
Halted then walked deep into.
"Is there someone?",
Jokingly she screamed.
Kept calling out,
Maybe there was a monster.
No, there can't be a giant
Or she'll have to fight.
Power she didn't had much,
Quest she had left untouched.
Receding back from the cave,
"Stop!!!", she heard someone's crave.
Turning backwards was not a choice,
Unclear and confused was her mind.
Valorous she thought to be,
Walking again towards the creature.
Xenophobic and therefore she lived away.
You never know when you change,
Zenith you will surely feel someday.
2 December 2019
Eating hard foods
Figuring out words
Getting left behind
Helping another child
Interests are necessary
Jumping off playground not allowed
Learning more every day
Preparing for aging
Remember your youth
Staying in the hospital
Under harsh lights
Wishing for release
Xylose down a tube
Yelling for life
Zero time left
The A, B, C’s of Life
A typical Boy Convinced a Dashing young girl so Easily to come and Find love and Grow together, to build a House, and Invest in some children. Joy is what they had when Kathy Lied about her affair, holy Matrimony is off the table. Now that their love is Over and Tim is Peeved about his wife's affair, can't Quite get his heart right. Rest assure he's not happy but she is. Some like it hot and some like it cold. Time will never tell, that's for sure; Until now Validation comes to those who have been wronged. While leaning on that everlasting star. X-rayed eyes glassed over I guess You thought this was about you. "No!" Zebra's.
All of the time
Baloney hits you like a
Cabbage with no taste
Daring to make its way through you
Eating through your body
Finishing you to your core
Kittens do that sometimes
Love them anyways
Make a wish
Please, in a week from now
Quiet, its happening
Rainbows turn colorless
Turns to nothing
Violins start playing
Weather gets mixed up
Xylophones start ringing
You start to dissapear
Zits start popping
A wish speaks softly in deaf worlds for us
Becoming a composition in sign language
Creating songs of a lifetime tango for two
Dancing with our butterfly hands that talk
Eloquently moving conversation in place
Flowering every sweet moment of faith
Gracefully speaking of the love we share
Hearing with our hands and seeing forever
Imagining flight, we fly over the rainbows
Just as we are soaring now, we will always be
Kindling light on the two hearts that beat as one
Lady’s man finding everything she’s ever wanted
Moving universes closer to rhythm that she feels
Newer reaching stars are for touching our dreams
Onward and forward, we live in wide open spaces
Perfect pitch for a man in his rightful proposal
Quartets are singing in the constellations for him
Revisiting the night of his first embrace with her
Serenading the sweet silent hours of having it all
Truly hearing in ways that only the deaf are able
United with our moving hands and growing hearts
Very close to our precious wedding day to come
Willfully giving our lives to protect each other
Xenial reception from treasured family and friends
You are my safeguarding anchor, I am your wings
Zackary and Jaime, husband and wife, always one.
