Trapped in the Garden of Good and Evil

Trapped in the Garden of Good and Evil

Specific reasons
for times and seasons
drifting on a breeze
Why this
What if that
When will peace arrive
for all
These cringes we call in resistance
from the furthest fringes of existence
their intricate formulas
unintended for mortals
It is not our function
to bridge the junction
but to determine
the product of value
in the rhythm and rhyme
what might be divine
to sign on the spinning dime
a thought
a line
a dream in time
committed to memories
For love or light
we continue to fight
live and learn
lesson the burn
teach in return

And when we are limitless
bear witness

Intricate details of the inexplicable soul

Knowing is not the goal
it’s feeling the whole

SkyBird Bound

SkyBird Bound
   -for my Sister

Take off and fly
SkyBird bound
your spirit is not tethered
to any ground

Dragons don’t dream
of places that seem
any better than this
or reminisce
over fallen stars
and their memoirs
Time marches on
too soon it’s all gone
They explore possibilities
with ease in the breeze
where landings are seen
few and farther between
becomes wing
Flight becomes sight
tears become might
heart becomes art
to the end from the start
and love for love’s sake
is never a mistake

So take off and fly
SkyBird bound
your spirit is not tethered
to any ground

My Blank, The Blank

My Blank, The Blank

My blank
is THE blank
It is the best blank
of all
No other blank
can hold a candle
to my blank
The simplest reason
is this one for sure
It is my blank
It is my blank
and your blank
should always be
the best blank
for you

Fill it in

Time machine by AleksCG
Time machine by AleksCG


Traveling forwards and backwards
sideways on good days
through thoughts and dreams
The page is my time machine
spilled words map my journey
to anywhen, anywhere
devising anything
Fueled by imagination
worlds beyond known
and gently back home
What a ride
what a high

Neverland by j-vidanova
Neverland by j-vidanova


Call me walled
in cast iron squalls
sailed by random memories
to shelter in the dark
mismatched pieces of
this broken heart
Betrayed, unswayed
the ghost inside my head
is bleeding red
on visions of a perfect world
I am just a Lost Girl
silenced by a feather
drifting onto the remains
of hollow wordplay
