The Mind’s Eye

Stare into these mystical eyes
Motion tween the shutter finds
Amid blinks of human passerbys
Visualize an empty mind

Open third skylight
Main being reclined
Breathing swell & then subsides

Calm frights at rest
There is no better
Feeling set open
You don’t remember
Time past life
This year, September
Homesickness
Can’t last
Going on
Forever

Captive on display
Prison echos shook
Rattling chains
Spectator looks
Tranquil, tased, electric hooks
Fish bowl, space drained, peace tamed, life took

Hours our minutes
Existence fades with sleep
Becoming accustomed
Keep living this dream

Like Statues Remind

Boyish eyes a glimmer spy
Sharing memorial to a place and time…

Hearts in her hands
Respecting new life
Something perfect
No words can mind

When everything’s worth it
And you don’t need to try
Remember your feelings
Like statues remind

Mind Entranced

Posted in Blog, Poetry, writing with tags , , , , , on October 9, 2009 by dustus

Rain pattering
darkened day
blackened gray
scattering, pondering
wonder what’s happening?
fallen steady echoes refrain
calm passed alarm
tornado warned
alerts converted
powers gone…
nothing left to give
wishing peace for all to live
sign of sleep when lids won’t lift
continents and time will drift
melting ice heats life to death
chill red wine, ignore respects
do your best, but don’t expect
hearts explode in seconds flat
lines combine on dare to ask
droplets sounding
mind entranced
