Questions of life and death lost in the words







I



One of the few who could see beyond the face of love


taking every bit of life he could find in her heart of joy


all we felt was the voices of those before laid in comfort


in the grass of youth finding passion as the perfect escape







Flowers dance on the hill


as the wind blows strong


small lights scream fight


all the cars filled with young


back seat lovers understand





II



Out of the hell created by demanding society


children bare self and soul for the vision expected


prepare for the crash burn and die of yesterday


all is up for grabs female to male sailing in a troubled sea







She is the first of the trill


taste all he has can it be wrong


Officer’s intrusion is flashlight


county sings a message sung


Momma from jails picks up her little man





III



Tried a stand man moves to the hill to watch the fire of desire grow


shadows of the ghost before dance to the beat hearts singing natures song


long in the evening bursting stars dropping fast in view as it turns


child becomes the adult with an empty feel lost in expectation died in a car







Little is the wild side of being


in a world filled with pain


keep the tears falling


a scripted dream


left in the sad





IV


Family walks the path to a place to lay a blanket down


flowers seeking the sound of laughter found in soul search


wonder is the birth of eyes seeing all that is real and used


place is a heart on the mend of truth and value we pretend







Save the child in seeing


falling stars in rain


heard the child calling


tip a bit of Beam


all of us have been had





V



Slow the mind takes the world for what it is a place lost


ideal kept in the storyteller lay to rest by reality seen


stage of time blesses him on the street corner singing


she does his bidding for a time but even love will die







Creativity left on a barstool


in a time that lived


only her fragile mind


danger is the drink left


                                                      see you a round
