Wonders of Life

12 November 2005


To give - to live
to seek and hope
this understanding
now bring me the rope

A poet who cares
but wonders what for
Was there more to life
in giving ever and ever more

Why do I do this to myself
why should I be the one to care
Because in others - the truth
can be more ragged in outlook to bare

This nakedness of soul
open to wounds of cut and hurt
Why do I do this to myself
if others treat me like dirt


"Sometimes it is harder to deprive oneself of a pain than of a pleasure."
Tender is the Night
F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896 - 1940)
US novelist

Wonders of Life was composed as a 'show me what ya got' right
when the topic was "Why do I do this to myself?"
and what I composed was but a passing thought
When in some cases the call to rhyme dictated the outcome
Not that I need any excuses, because I do not write poems
I write from my heart

So you want to be a poet? Im sorry...

Do you know what blood can taste like? Do you know what its like when you're not you?
How many times have you tried and failed? How many times has this life burned into you?
Show me the scars you have that you dont want anyone to see.
Tell the entire world what makes you, so much different from them or from me.

So you wanna be a poet. Why would you want to bleed and cry this much?

Brow of Reflection

12 November 2005


The blood of a poet were words wept
Droplet by droplet - line upon line
In every crevice - of precept kept

Colours other than red
faded to pigments of blue
Others solemn and some
in fantasy while those were true

A world embroiled in passion
like the stranger you did meet
Each element laid at the course
of a meandering mind in feet

Tears encased in torn rhythm
pulsing as to an affection
Drip by drop in sweat
wiped from a brow in reflection


"For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept;
line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:"
Isaiah 28: 10 KJV

A true poet bleeds, but not from his words, but rather from his life.
Its a person who puts pen to paper and remembers love, fear and strife.
Bleeding is simply a very small part
of that curse that the world calls art.

Being a poet doesnt mean you have to bleed
Just like being a begger doesnt mean you have to need...

So, this is what you want to do? Maybe you will become just like me.
Maybe you will have dreams. Perhaps fall in love... and learn to kill all that you see.

Maybe this is what you want. An ability to find a way to bleed across.
I would caution you, simply because I have found a way to hang myself, on that cross.

I spew a rhyme without resolve
can see it leap from my lips
I watch it as it evolves
as it braves the abyss

I bid good tidings to my noble words
I know they wont return
ventureing off in a world absurd
what revolution will they spurn

Go my words, and dont look back
I'll be here for some time
And you wont be alone forever
soon joined by another rhyme

This wretched, cold world that rejects me
Drives the nails deeper into my genuine stigmata
Nailed to a cross I don't believe in, crying
These are the wounds of the spirit
Wounds made by the absence of love
And above my head, the inscription:
"Patrick of Topeka, King of the Broken"

Somebody save me...

You came smilin' gently,
Shyly movin',
Easy as a dreamer,
Into my world;
And before I realized the danger,
I found myself,
Starin' into your eyes;
And somewhere in their colors,
I saw promises of things,
I'd never seen
Before
And it's all over,
I've got to have you,

Holdin' onto talkin'
sayin' nothin,
Knowing with a keystroke, I could lose you;
Then I just remember how you tremble at the touch of my hand;
Knowing when you came to me,
That no one else would ever feel the same,
In my arms:
And It's all over, I got to have you.....

Your eyes are brown
They are not blue like the ocean
or green like emeralds that shine
Nor are they red from lack of sleep
or from drinking too much wine
Brown ... can't think of many words for use
Brown? ... like dirt?
Wouldn't work
and would surely lead to abuse!
So my ode to your eyes is not a success
But they are beautiful nonetheless

Wise men say,
No one said life was easy,
No one said life was hard,
May we be strong, and be our own gods and live without doubt or guilt.
May we not seek guidance from others but from ourselves in which the true path lies.
May we not deceive ourselves or others,
may you realize, that there is no time to waste, may we not be bent on greed or desire that leads to barbaric hatred, that conflict upon suffering on yourself, and on others, and we embrace virtuous states of mind, and help on to others, that you care about so they can be helped and help on to others, so we so nor slip on these pits with a deep downfall.
This is our world, and it to will not last so don’t live into the past, all situations will render useless no matter.
All things must pass, all of life’s dreams will not last.
