Faith of Heart

T. Byron K.

In the stillness of this solitudedreams clinging like rain to my blood soul

I did know a caressing of invisible hands

the presence of some monster unformed

spoke, giving me reasons to pray

and finally, invariably

allowing real freedom-

fear which brings me nothing

pallid death riding like a virgin in the dark night

all matters of wishlessness or anguish 

rush toward the stems bloom

a mindful tomb opening in the light of

this first spring.

We are the wellspring of ancient desire.

Through the mist

I see orange hell fire

the age old contempt for man is burning

I am lonely

we are alone until 

this place anoints the bleak fire

burning our soul’s gestation

Know your way to God.

Winter 1993

The box of Cabernet is empty

The box of Cabernet is empty

I stare at the box with has forsaken me

How could you run dry?

I’ve treated you so well

I saved you from the grocery store prison

Yet your vital liquid vanishes

Why?

Brain Dead

I am looking forward to seeing you today.

It has been a six years this past may.

Pictures flood into my head,

From the day I left your bed

The first time only to return

Over and over again.

Anxious decisions are abound.

I pray at least one good one is found.

Seeing you again could restart my heart,

Or it could cause what’s left to fall apart

Like parts did the first time

Over and over again.

I see you walking towards me

And my mind stops working.
