Metaphysical Nightmare

Metaphysical Nightmare

 

Whispers, images, flashes 
Haunting
Deep waters move rapidly

Dream or memory
Confusion
Fevered imagination plotting

Insanity beckons
Looming
Shadows of reality or shades of imagination

Frame after frame
Clicking
Taunts fast and clear

Screaming conscience 
Shrill 
Mind mirrors shatter

Shards fall 
Cutting
Tearing the delicate foundation

Death breathes close
Stop!
It does

And Yet Another Poem

 

 

Mind Games

Comets streak through moonlit skies
inspiring awe in human minds
and hearts that try to fathom all the whys
With eyes we see and hearts we feel
but really it’s our minds emotions steal
as in breathless whispers
we question what is real
The world is false, so much untrue
and yet there’s still someone like you
whose guileless eyes and smile I knew
would somehow break my heart in two
but still I loved you

As long as comets race through space and time
your face will stay within the confines
of my mind
Till time unwinds

 

 

 

Just one of my poems

THIRTEEN

Bicycle wheels flying on a sultry, summer Saturday

All chrome and shiny black enamel, with handbrakes and three speeds

 

Freedom from classroom tyranny, parental supervision and school bullies

At least for now…

 

Super heated air, cooled only by speed, rushes past, hair flying out behind

 

Muscles pumping, heart racing, fear nowhere in sight

At least for now…

 

Serenity, peace, excitement, joy! So many good feelings, almost overwhelming

Almost…

 

No destination, just going, riding, flying…

My black charger carrying me off to a better place

At least for now…
