Mystery of Memories

I may be the last in line
Yet I am the first to see the sign
High above it’s tangled in the fray
It says we’re going the wrong way
I’ve got the new directions
Follow me I offer no objections
Here in my heart I give no concessions
Surrounded by the sadness of strangers
I feel the pulse of the world
And sense all of its dangers
When life gets in the way
You cross the railroad tracks
To walk along the river
Was it a black cat
That caught your eye
Slippery steps lead into the cauldron
So follow me now
Will Lady Luck light your way
Or will the devil lead you astray
Ancient memories and old identities
Are unforgiving
The mystery of the undead will continue to fascinate the living
Some who still live in scandal and myth
Question the memories that remain
Frozen in the forest of your mind
A drowned man’s shadow
Appears in a teardrop factory

Bursting Magnificence

Settle in for the seance

Open up your eyes

Get ready for another world

Back lit by the sky

Remove your expectations

Exceed another dimension

Revel in nightly pursuits

Walk silently through the crowd

Anticipate the applause

Are you a rebel or the cause?

Dismiss dissension

With a cheerful disposition

Ride your own wave length

Determination is withheld

Withdrawn is your style

Walk with me and tell me your story

Somewhere on the wind

Your wave will arrive

Catch it if you can

Burst upon the scene

With magnificence in betweenImage

 

Smile of the Dawn

Shifting shafts of light
Swallow the morning yawn
Islands of memories
Swim out to meet the dawn
Dregs of dreams smirk
As you try to recall where you went
And who you saw
In dark passages
Slippery bodies contort
Amidst the crimson velvet
Of a sacred and private nature
You smell the light of day
Drifting through the sultry stillness
Let the day take you where it may
It’s funny what life gives you
When you get in the flow
The black hand of fate
Or a letter in the mail
Entices you onto the scene
Step out of the shadows
Into a blaze of glory
And I will show you what I mean

Internal Echoes

Within the realm
Of staggering possibilities
Lies the answer to all the stories
You’ve ever been told
It all began when somebody said
Lo and behold
I’d like to try again
So off you went to the emerald forest
Laughing all the way
Leaving behind the small town sagas
You carried too far
Now that your able
To sneer at the past
A remedy has surfaced
From the crystal ship
That sank off your shores
Distant and wide screaming within
Tortured beneath a smile so vast
You’ve tied yourself to the mast
To set sail for parts unknown
Festering with guilt
You sail away in your dreams
Looking ahead or under your bed
Ghosts of destiny careen in your head
Echoing down the hall
You have turned a corner
Into the purple sunrise
Of a silent meadow
