Peaceful disturbance

A cold air of paranoia hallucinates outside,
as the trees give a shiver, shaking off flies,
the shadowy streets goad the morning to rise
and a dusty light fails in the far-away sky.

A slow, soundless and sinister breeze
strokes fear gently behind the ears.
But, somewhere within this murderous scene,
an essence of peace appears

for no sunlight scorches the soil
or burns the lightless eyes.
No creature disturbs the dew,
or spoils the air with a cry.

The dark velvet above, protects us all
from yesterday’s recall.
Engraved in the heart of a cool pre-dawn
is the wording that states: a new day is born.

Plead for paradise

Don’t settle for less when you are worth more
than your possessor gives you credit for.
I want you to be loved with the greatest affection,
and be content with nothing shy of perfection.

You mustn’t be blinded by the comforts of now,
be immune to the touch, nor deaf to the sound.
You cannot ignore your desires, believe them;
hitchhike with me to the Garden of Eden.

The trusting fool

You used to call my name.
I’d laugh and joke with you.
You used to call my name,
but now our gaming’s through.

You used to walk with me.
We’d talk about life’s truths.
You used to walk with me,
but now our soles are bruised.

You used to love me so.
We watched our passion grow.
You used to love me so,
now loss is all I know.

How could I be so gullible
to think it were to be?
For now I am invisible
to all who used to see.
