The difference between love and lust. The covenant between steel and rust. The race to keep your youth. The clock will beat you.
Time, lies, truth.

The illusion that everything stayed the same. An old friend that forgot your name. Blocking the sun in a clear blue sky. The essence of the difference between you and I.

Apes with a desire for fame.
Descendant, God, taking, blame.
Praying, silent, love.
Meditate, crying, dove.

A house with no roof.
A crime with no proof.
A tree with no leaves.
Palisade, stalling, thieves.

Digging deeper underground.
Demons capture every sound.
The devil who solemnly vows to win.
Search, darkness, toothless, grin.

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff.
