The Face

Angel Faces

Her face

Rose the day

Translucent against

The alabaster sky

Reaching

For the unattainable

I fall, floating

Carried away

Like chimes on the wind

I’m carried home

The Mud

On muddy paths

The weary souls walk their narrow way

Transfixed on tomorrow

Shedding the heavy past of bondage

Their weary steps carry them on

Toward the promise of freedoms light.

DARKNESS

Darkness Falls 2

Darkness

Sweet darkness

Please wait for me

Darkness

Oh darkness

Don’t set me free

The sun

Shines high

That deadly heat

Darkness

Oh darkness

Won’t you come protect me

Darkness

Cold darkness

Don’t hide from me

Darkness

Sweet darkness

Please don’t forsake me

The Sun

It’s deadly light

It threatens me

Darkness

Oh darkness

Come rescue me

CLOCK WITH NO HANDS

Image

A clock with no hands

Can give no time

A clock with no hands

I may as well be blind

A clock with no hands

I cannot read

A clock with no hands

I do not need

A clock with no hands

serves no purpose at all

A clock with no hands

Hangs on my wall

From time to time

But only when the wind chimes

I know she’s still here

Translucent and fair

With coal-black hair

I know she’s still here

Watching my every move

Rather I win or lose,

I know she’s still here

Alone on a dark wet road

A car took her body

The lord took her soul

But I know she’s still here

It happened gradually

I’m not sure when it began

but before I knew it

I loved you

Your silence says so much.
