The mountains Are calling me home I hear their song in my heart Whispering Urging me To return I taste the waters Of the fjords Crisp and clear On my tongue I feel the vines Of the forests below Snaking around me Tightening around me Dragging me back The clouds descend From the summits Cloaking […]

It’s all gone quiet in my head The voices have departed Leaving empty silence in their wake I will not pretend I liked them all There were many I despised And so often wished would leave But with them gone I cannot bear their absence And the silence they have left behind A silence in […]

I used to write Using fancy words Believing at the time That this is what made poetry great Yet in truth My writing was anything but For what use are such words If I cannot shape them   So now I write Using only the words That I need to get my point across No […]

Don’t talk to me of rectitude Such a construct can’t exist Who’s to say what’s in the rules; How our lives should all be lived?   It’s our personal decision What’s wrong and what is right No stonewall indiscretion It’s not written in black and white   It’s not for you to judge me Force […]
