Graveyard – By: D.e.e.L
Left the house of friends and fun to take a walk
A walk of air to breathe and life to live
Down the street and turn taken
I was presented forward, two other options too
To the park, to walk the living trees
Or the graveyard, to join the deceased.
I first appraoched the living,
Yet a man with the clanking chain of his dog’s collar
Went before me.
Not wanting to listen I joined where I will end
Walking and meeting new people
Finding the wife that lived forty years after her husbands Death.
That realm of pain and agony I hope to never know
Her family staying close
Her love drained from her eyes
Everyone still loves her.
Benson, a beloved husband and father
In the ground since 1996
I was still just a kid, jumping off dirt mounds as he was being layed into such. I took it for granted.
The trees are all living
Their leaves on the ground
The air is cold
And I sit here
Writing underneath the branches of an Oak.
In Flames – By: D.e.e.L
This moment paused
I try it again
But this time
I walk away
Without giving you
To engulf my world in flames
Fortunate Sorrow – By: D.e.e.L
What if some voice boomed from thought and truth
And told you that nobody cares for you?
Would life lose meaning?
Would you believe it or drown yourself in doubt?
Does time only slip seconds for the obsession of Love?
Do we only exist to be wanted?
What does it mean to Live?
Where do I find Love?
Slipping, fading, false temptations and kind gestures.
We all ignore the voice and protrude life fragments onto others
Hoping people desire to pick up our pieces
Listen; Create sorrow; Demise
Distant – By: D.e.e.L
Hopscotch of thought
Innocent alcohol leaping
Sadness glooms of radiance
One foot, then two, then two again
Another Sip before glass is Shattered
Upon chalked childhood
Radiance only in memory
Memory only in time too distant to remember
Scotch hopping from square to square
Exist – By: D.e.e.L
Happiness seemed within grasp once more
Perhaps only in the forseen
Eyes damaged by the moon
lit as burning day
Pack full of empty boxes of photographs
Nothing makes sense
Twist of faded forshadowing dubbed in subtitles
Ignited memories being drawn upon paper thought to be erased
This place again
I’ve come to love it;
Only because I exist.
Savage – By: D.e.e.L
To this world
To this realm
What is this life that I have not been living?
Who are all these people I will never meet?
Hands clenched to fists too painful to bare
Holding onto something
That faint glimpse at happiness I once held
The act of it being ripped from my chest
Fueling my passion
Scribing my words from its agony
Where am I now?
Within this world I have been scattered
To whom do I seek to once again feel such bliss?
Savage is such
Becoming someone new was never an option.
Ignite – By: D.e.e.L
Translucent to the mind
An idea bright as dull
Dull being sharpened by the sun
Beams of what no one else can see
Your eyes existing in the visions
The single spark
Only you can see it
Let the fire burn forever
Red – By: D.e.e.L
Red street lights mean nothing to those of you
Reading this without thought to the living
Ran a stop sign
Regretted nothing from a moment’s past
Red was the color of the street light
Red now covering the street
Meaning – By: D.e.e.L
You drop words
Upon the floor they lay
By my feet I can see them
I pick up a word and try to understand
Why you would drop this word to my feet
And not place it in my hands
I peer down to see what follows
And I understand
These words are meant to exist within visions
These words are not meant to be held
no Words; only Sounds – D.e.e.L
Can a downward spiral
Ever change direction?
Condemned is the fool that doesn’t see you from either side of the cleansed
Though of course too dark has become the glass
Tinted by your lies
Just to say a single word
Shot and shot to build my courage
Now her name escapes me
Never been much for names anyhow
as not to make a noise
as a sound would be a heartbeat
lost to us all
Forever in a moment do I not exist
Lapse of time frail to the pavement of man
Perhaps it be full of gin this time
Forbid me from this world
as I fear that I do not belong within its light
If one could truly walk forever without giving thought to their feet
One could truly live
I couldn’t imagine life without pain until I had to endure it
step towards me without getting any closer
as I hope only to catch a glimpse
the actuality of you
not that person everyone else knows by name
but the nameless goddess
I portray you to be
