I See

Posted by Alien on May 12, 2012 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)

I see the walls breath,

slow, steady

In, out

expanding, stretching,

reaching, yearning

Constricting, tighter,

compacting

distance pulling away

my body sways as it gravity pulls me to and fro

I close my eyes,

swaying in its energy,

its breath.

Reaching out touching its soul,

its texture moving, changing its molecular structure,

its bond keeps spinning around its atoms.

I see the walls breath

Wayside

Posted by Alien on January 12, 2012 at 12:05 PM Comments comments (3)

The old and the young both left on the wayside,

unable to go any farther.

Big ones and little ones left where they died,

abandoned by the ones who were carried about.

Some return and try to revive;

others turn and walk away never looking back

the eraser of their mind working overtime as they do.

Silent prayers whispered before death,

curses when the wheels of life stop spinning.

Bleeding out,

the fuel of life is spent,

Creatures

Posted by Alien on January 12, 2012 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (1)

Creatures of habit bathe in the lichen covered walls

of an old and unused well

Stirring the stagnant waters

the mind beginning to break down

It becomes the cesspool of one dimension

As the farmers sows his field

so the mind can only follow one line of thought

The mindless

the silent

the supplicated

doing what THEY say is best for you

believing what THEY say

Most never knowing they are in a well

drowning as ...

Sleepless

Posted by Alien on January 12, 2012 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

You are in my thoughts during the sleepless nights

often are the thoughts of you.

I can feel my heart beat faster as our song plays in my head

you are my only thought as I listen,

remembering.

I remember your soft pale red hair.

I remember the times we have spoken,

your blue eyes as you look at me

the way they would light up in your smile,

your shy nervous laughter.

I remember the excitement that was you that would brighten...

In the Pines

Posted by Alien on August 6, 2011 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (1)

The darkness calls us all to play,

to get lost in the deepest pines.

To turn our backs on the light of day,

and venture where it cannot shine.

One by one we happily follow to the woods,

we cannot leave.

The darkness leads us to the hollow;

we see the web it weaves.

The web drips with every pleasure

that we could ever crave.

We eagerly pick off these treasures,

and let the darkness make us slaves.

Higher up the...

Puzzle

Posted by Alien on August 5, 2011 at 12:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Silently they walk away,

removing themselves

from what I can only think of as a stench.

Not an odor

but an aura maybe.

What is it about me that draw them in

only to push them away?

To tell me lies,

I’m not made for this world

I don’t fit in,

every puzzle has its pieces,

all fit into place… somewhere.

Sometimes pieces are missing;

I am a piece that fits nowhere.

Standing on the o...

41

Another year has come to pass,

one more year to add to age.

Ancient is my soul,

a thousand lifetimes it has lived,

turning to dust,

blown about by the wind of an ever changing

ever evolving sense of reality.

Another year has come to pass,

turmoil in a biblical scope,

the world has been rocked with earthquakes,

plagues, disease, famine, drought and floods.

Closer we come to the end of the world,

as Christians w...

Waves

Posted by Alien on August 5, 2011 at 12:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Waves from an ocean flow over me,

wave after wave pound down upon me,

struggling to breath,

gasping as my lungs are flooded,

coughing mixed with sobs

as the past flashes before my eyes.

Pain of a different life

brought to the flood of today.

Resentments from a different world,

the world of a generation past,

the pain racking my body

as the wave’s pound against my skin,

my back whipped across with knotted...

This Suit

Posted by Alien on August 5, 2011 at 12:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I hurry to unlock the door, looking around to not be caught unaware. Quickly I enter shutting and locking the door behind me, I pull back the blind just a hair to be sure I wasn’t followed that no one is going to knock on my door. Slowly the tension, the anxiety releases its grip on me. Most people at this time would take off their hats or jackets and hang them on a hook, me… I remove this mask I wear. Opening the closet I place it in its spot next to the dozens of others. My clot...

Roaches

Posted by Alien on July 26, 2011 at 11:18 AM Comments comments (0)

Roaches scurry crack to crevice

living in their own world,

oblivious to everything around

a single mind set to get what they need.

 

The people I see as I watch these streets,

like roaches they scurry

to get what they want

but don’t need.

 

Like roaches these people carry filth and disease,

beer cans, coffee cups,

and cigarette butts

scattered about at my feet.

 

TV is the ne...
