Assorted Poetic Musings

Sometimes I scribble down little poems/thoughts and forget I've written them, then rediscover them and think they're quaint. Here's a few.


I looked into the face of evil
And evil looked away.


There are times you forget that you're an adult.
Those are the best of the times.


Ignorance is not bliss.
To be a child, that is bliss.


To bear your burdens
Is too much to do.
To find reason to complain
Is breathing.


'Tis much too early
To beg for pity
In the public sphere.
We live in a time
Of hands out
For hand outs,
Of eyes shut,
Ears closed,
Mouth open.
Confidence comes
To those who work.
Conscious comes
To those in the now.
Conscience comes
To those with heart.
Success is determined
By you.

 - Puppy
I am the puppy.
Koo koo ka choo.
What's that?
Oh hi!
Hey!
Wait . . .
Bug!
I peed . . .
Don't!
Touch me!
Don't touch me . . .
Touch me!
Love, love, love!
It smells like YAY!
Stop!
Ssssshhhhh, I hear - -
TOUCH ME!
Be touched.


Imagine if you will, perfect love.
Now, quiet!
Perfect love is not words,
Hush.
Go. Do.
Perfect love is actions.


One, two, buckle my shoe.
Because you owe me.


I miss the days
When you and I
Were unacquainted.
Now I have to listen
To your droning.


Every living thing,
Everything living,
Give me your heart.
There is room in the river
To drown with the rest.
Why cross
When pain exists
On the other side?
Sink.
Grace is an ocean.
You breath at the bottom
Not at the top.
Only when you drown
Can you float to the surface.
