Charming Caveman

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2014 by dc

Give me that
Moment again

And you will see
A night sky filtered
All luminescent pomp,

Fireworks
Conducted by sparrows,

A blaze of glory,
Perfectly framed,
Sucked in and then

Kissed on your eyelids,

All stylish
And grand,

Like only a charming
Caveman can.

Before Sleep

I have words I’ve yet to promise,
A handful of insults
And a truth I need to bury,

Far beyond the blind man’s winds and clouds
Or the dreams trapped on the sand,

Across the tide’s dark purple hue
And beneath the questioning dusk,

I shake dried mud from my hair
And laugh at nothing won;

I have promises I’ve yet to insult,
A handful of truths
And some words I need to bury.

The Sombre Exhale

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , on June 16, 2014 by dc

The sombre exhale,
The gentle throb of guilt
And the moment you know
That you’re wrong,

The heavy swallow,
The lowered shoulders
And the slow, measured dance
Of the sunlight

As the air echoes shame
To the beats of contrition.

Evil Thinking

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2014 by dc

All this makeshift evil thinking
Where success is built on debt,

Where love is hidden on hard-drives
And they’ve given up counting the dead,

They’re led until they’re bored and lost,
Till they’re tossed aside into echoes,

And they whisper things will get much worse
Beneath the shadows of gallows.
