LOVE POEM #110 – Waypoint

Waypoint

 

We are at our tented waypoint,

in between the washed out houses

and the rushing sounds of water,

wondering what will oust us next:

 

A wind shattering the windows

at our secondary safe house

or swells within the muddy floods

that crest our mental riverbanks.

FIFTY WORD STORY – The Hook

The hook dangles, shining in the aquatic light. The dead worm seems to writhe in the current as unsuspecting fish swim by. A small one spies it and—his curiosity getting the better of him—he takes a bite. Suddenly, he is ripped from the water into the murderous air.

Door Dog (and Other Haikus)

Release

A breath like fire

flows as steam through my nostrils

until the heat fades.

 

Crush

A hundred heartbeats

crammed into half a second

marks when I see you.

 

Too Much Reading

All the words seem blurred;

the ink blended like black rain

bathing a blank page.

 

Breakable

Hollow and heart shaped

forged in a hearth just for you.

Please handle with care.

 

Door Dog

He waits by the door

hoping that I will take him

or he will stop me.

MUSIC SERIES – Stamps

This poem was inspired by Postcards from Far Away by Coldplay! Have a song you think I should listen to? Let me know in the comments!

 

Stamps

 

The soldier stands in the corner

careful to secure his fifty cent mark

behind the lines of somber words

with his back to a capital monument.

 

Far away, he finds himself again

in a field full of blissful smiles

where rain only falls on his letters

and blotch the standard-issue black ink.

LOVE POEM #109 – Guitar

Guitar

 

Like the gentle weeping of strings

on a slender wooden guitar,

her sobs carry through the thick walls

as though she picked at her own heart.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Hunting

The hunt was afoot. The whipping mix of leaves and wind wound through the air as his footsteps crunched the dirt. The trees were dense, and his sidelong glances at were cut short by gnarled roots. Suddenly, a large one snagged him and he hit the ground. The deer escaped.

The Cat Insists (and Other Haikus)

Blank Sheet

On the plain table,

the lonely partner sits blank

wanting for his pen.

 

Doll Eyes

A vortex of black

somehow darker than the shelf

she is standing on.

 

Leaks

Runaway waters

sneak down the leaky faucet,

scurrying like rats.

 

Senses

The fluttering red

of the richly colored rose

floats into closed eyes.

 

The Cat Insists

After three attempts

to return him to the floor,

I cede my lap.

MUSIC SERIES – The Miner

This poem was inspired by Heart of Gold by Neil Young! Have a song you think I should write about? Let me know in the comments!

 

The Miner

 

You will find me here in the darkness

with a dirt-stained shirt and dust-filled lungs

hacking away at an endless wall

like the dreamer lost in his black sea.

 

Suddenly, our earthen ocean shakes;

the waves of clay wrack with a madness

and we drowned in its torrents of dredge

with hearts ever set on the sunshine.

FIFTY WORD STORY – Vengeance of the Herd

The thunder of hooves was behind him. They loomed, growing louder and louder like a symphony. The pack had become a whirlwind of terror when he had put a bolt through the smallest one’s neck, but instead of dispersing, they collected and came after him with a thirst for vengeance.
