Another Poem

Neath the Mask


These dark forces held at bay,

those that play before light of day,

slipped through the playground of my mind,

marred, scarred, and without regard...


Many a day had come and gone,

drifting back to times gone past,

though has left me, thoughtful and morass...


‘twas only an inkling as I did sigh,

with face raised upward, toward darkening skies

ideas kept away, those long times past

till light of day, revealed neath the mask...


Yes, it was only a thought, crossing through time

knowing not what, might I dare find

It was not flight of fancy to be stumbled upon

with humbled beginnings, it begs to come home...



Writing has become an obsession so strong, it can't be denied.

It haunts my every waking hour, and tiptoes through my dreams

Those flickering embers, turn into roaring flames of passion;

I am never alone anymore...
