Impossible… #Poetry

Paper roses
Red running blood
Every petal a broken heart
Hell is where love cannot enter
Impossible marches away
Silence that hurts, nailed on a blackboard
Turning day into night
Open doors wait
Run, do not enter
Inside the
Carrion crows wait to pick…


#The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 489 ~ #Poetry

When silence comes knocking like a jackhammer
It’s time to run
Check your bank account
It may not be a good time to take a risk
So shelve that new idea
Don’t let that heavy metal feeling bend your spine
Shake the cobwebs from your mind
Try not to step into it when crossing the yard
Shower, soaped, you dry yourself down
Your mind wrapped in a haze
sleeping within the sound of silence…

Time Again… #Poetry

Time Again

Why do you go where I cannot follow?
Must I travel this dusty road alone?
Why must I live in the eye of the storm without you
where silence beats in time with my heart.
Could I wake one morning where time has reversed
To find you lying beside me
Ready to travel the road again…

#The Sunday Whirl ~ Wordle 463 ~ #Poetry

Dark clouds cross my horizon
Screaming with want
I dread the crash at their journeys end
I inhale, hold my breath
No air in my lungs to shout, to scream
As the room fades around me
I feel no panic
as giant dust clouds creep towards me
 A strange billowing entity
Now I feel it, the silence inside my soul…
