»What Might Have Been«

by Richard Thomas, Oct 22, 2016

As we age we regret words of anger and spite / That were heard and remembered and can't be unsaid. / The remarks we thought clever or proved we were right / That resulted in losses of friendships instead. / / All the heartbreaks that came from suspicion and doubt, / The betrayals and hurts we refused to… read more »

Standing in the among the ruins of what / Used to be a thriving little gold fever town / I swore I heard music and laughter coming / From the half-moon saloon, I walked around / But nobody could be found still I could of / Sworn I just saw a cowboy walk chasing / An Apache in a cloud of dust well I felt a… read more »

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 20, 2016

The World looking at me with disgust / And evil eyes. The social awkwardness caused / By seeking something greater than I or the / Great I AM. The potential to seek is trapped / In me like a caged animal longing to be / Set free. / The enemy trying to keep me on a / Leash, the more I resist the harder the… read more »

»Mental Re-flux Infusion (Bi-Polar free verse)«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 20, 2016

The mind wondering off to distant space, / The body feeling small and thin like / A shoe lace, the World becoming difficult / To understand, my heart withdraws and it / Becomes a cold place. / My highest thoughts of the Universe / Reach its pinnacle but the Universe / Having thoughts about me is not… read more »

»For Your Love (I long for you)«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 18, 2016

Standing under the tree / Kissed by autumn as the / Leaves braze our faces, / As we make solemn promises / Of sharing eternity together. / The memories we have and / Share are written in the sands / Of time. As we grow in love each day, / We are reaching our prime. / As cupid points his arrow and / Shoots… read more »

Listening to the sound / Of the breeze that directs / The movement of the leaves. / Every sound my body makes / I can hear it! / / Sitting alone in a dark / Corner wondering if I / Fear being alone or left alone. / The conversations that are loud / In my head are making me lose / My sanity of the real world… read more »

»Wolves and Dream catchers«

by Brendon Tawanda Takarinda, Oct 18, 2016

The illuminated eyes / Of the wolf represent the loneliness / Shinning in the dark, the soul full of / Strength and wisdom. Mother Nature's / Very symbol of freedom. The wolf walks alone and / Fights united with fellow wolves, often underestimated and / Never understood. / / The wolf searches for its… read more »

So I find myself once again in the shadow of the crescent moon / Back to the marshlands in the throes of an ancient gossamer / Forest...well I can still hear your voodoo beckoning the sprits / And I too can feel the power here where I stand as lightning / Flashes and reveals the silhouettes of the… read more »

In the shadow of moonlight / My cape pulled up around / Me tight, standing at the crossroads / Under the tree of life, eyes like fire / In the night... / I call upon the spirit of HEKATE / As thunder rolls and lightning strikes / She rises up from out of the underworld / Like a phoenix out of the flames and… read more »
