I wandered in a cemetary

Shall we but stumble without passion, our lives unspun,

to thrash and swirl in some accepted tedium?

Shall we upon our heart’s dreams spit, twist and betray,

is that the moral nobility of turning away?

Does life’s challenge impale our ambition,leaving it dead,

while we stand idle, wringing time – life’s only thread?

Does fear, the harlot of intention, slaughter our desires like swine,

left abandoned, meek and cowering frightened to scream – MINE.

For what are we if we cease to boldly struggle in life’s web

has doubt seen us gored, leaving life’s hope to ebb?

For that shall be the strangled, castrated web we weave

if for but one fleeting moment in our dreams we should fail to believe.

So if that whore, raven Doubt should pierce you with her crime,

Parry with vehemence for the tis the paralysis of doubt, that steals our time.

Love on a park bench 2

Posted: November 3, 2010 in poetry

The breeze whispers on the lake tops, the mist shrouds call your name.

The trees answer in dark rustlings, all nature yearns the same.

Every being stands in awe and reverence, blinded by your sight.

The sun pales, the moon wanes, at your beauty’s light.

I wish I were cast a constellation, a heavenly tear drop sent.

So I may gaze upon you, with unabashed lover’s intent.

I am but a poor man, whose heart is happily captured.

I am but a fleeting heartbeat, by you devoutly enraptured.

If I were to grace your lips, so tender and so sweet

My heart would fall to silence – happy, love sworn and complete.

** from the poetic novel: The Bench by Kevin Farran**
