Shadow Men

Shadow men in the shadow lands
Fleeing from the gallows friend
Knowledge accrued, divisible by two
Torn apart by an invisible truth
Hopeless of having a home found here
Expanding into infinity, We fear
Comprehension of a void, Where
Tangible material, these rational things
Will be lost to the law on which atrophy hangs
Faith is placed in the ethereal and strange
Imaginary beings, silent gods, fictional kings
These thoughts held dear, feelings felt clear
All that was, all that ...

Far enough.
Fear. No nearer,
No nearer, no nearer.
Still small steps taken,
Pushed from behind.
Three thousand, maybe more,
Requests and demands of a kiss,
Heard from behind.
Ignoring, refusing, protesting, amounts to nothing,
Begging, dealing, pleading, for nothing.
Scrutinized, by all attending, intensely.
Forcing, sub-sequential ungracious
Forcing. The crowns’ hand, unbending.
Kneeling down, slowly.
Peering down, briefly.
Lips touched, gently.
Instantaneously, weeping.

Figures, unknown others, a procession of,
So many others, nodding approval.
Thanking, praising, hugging,
So gently, accepting.

The corners of your mouth creep up slowly.

So demented. So demented and beautiful.

I turn to ash as a manner of speaking.
I fall to the ground and my heart stops beating.
I dim to nothing like a memory without meaning.
I ...

lonely road

i can see it on the strangers’ face
as i pass ’em by on this lonely road
well-timed glances over our shoulders
nothing will ever need to be spoken
we just know
we just know

traveling in a different direction
than anyone we’ve ever known
hope we’ll both know if we get there
’cause we never know where we’re going
someplace new
someplace new

made it further than i’ve ever imagined
each step i take helps the sole wear thin
since the ...

For Richer, For Poorer

Started out with nothing but I provided for you,
did what was needed to see that we made it through,
a cold winters night with food on the table,
worked our way up and our life became stable,
never made a million but we had the dream,
the house, two cars, and other materialist things,
the money in the bank to get what we wanted,
we wanted nice things, had the cash, so we’d flaunt it,
even if we didn’t, ...
