    Summer Lessons

    Nonverbals reel in
    Abbreviated sentences cast brief visuals
    Akin to a fish latching on to the hanging worm
    Young minds are hooked to thrilling stories

    Sitting on a rickety chair
    An elderly man overlooks four kids circling around
    Gray, brown, blonde, black, and red hair sway in the suddle breeze
    The smell of flowers creates a pleasing aroma
    Joyful smiles shine in the midday sun

    Parables flow from the man's mouth
    Words flow into the kids' ears like musical notes
    Simplistic phrases with deep meanings etch into their malleable minds
    Sparkling eyes admire the frail role model in front of them

    Years after a sorrowful passing
    The four impressionable kids have become successful adults
    Taking in the life lessons given on those summer days
    Each has passed on his good will through their many actions
    An elderly man smiles down from above

    Self-determined

    Running faster
    Pushing harder
    Feeling pressure
    Overbearing expectations
    Muscles tensing
    Breaths hesitating
    Feet slipping
    Equilibrium failing
    Mind racing
    Shoulders straightening
    Eyes narrowing
    Breathing controlled
    Final push
    Arms portraying
    Dust trailing
    Peripherals blackening
    Lungs burning
    Passion rekindled
    I choose...
    To win

    Allured

    Heard from a wise man
    Sonnets warning of a drowning sand
    Walking under trees of a somber land
    Cutting through limbs that ban

    Whistling hymns of a fabled tune
    Carelessly wandering a jungle unkempt
    Aimlessly heading towards a treasure lament
    Eyes focusing on a gold chest forenoon

    Vibrations release with each step taken
    Money signs and fame fill his vision
    Unimaginable dangers unknown to his frivolous decision
    Sand surrounds the treasure forsaken

    The earth swallows all who seek
    Trespassers are unforgiven on this sacred ground
    Screams while sinking reverberate without bound
    Another adventurer sacrificed by the allure of the mystique

    Rampant

    Candle light illuminates a small area
    Ink sinks into the paper's pores
    Each strike of the pen displays a provocative motion
    Emotions emit an aura of pain and sorrow

    Soft pitter-patters echo off the metal roof
    Lightning flashes, etching painful shadows onto the walls
    Thunderous roars release a suppressed scream of internal plight
    Howling winds blow in the memories of a bitter past and present

    Bells ring in the distance
    Time reads the ghostly hour of three o'clock
    The tick-tocking of the clock resumes
    Fading whispers tell of enticing temptations
    Weightless footsteps stomp from above
    Three knocks come from the wooden door
    Inspiration runs rampant as the thoughts paste onto paper

    Natural light floods the hazy eyes of a distraught man
    An empty inkwell remains toppled over
    Black stains the tip of the dip pen
    Fourty-five sheets of paper litter the floor
    Each sheet fully detailing the years of his repentant life
    His eyes grow heavy
    The weight of unending thoughts subside
    His mind has been relinquished

    One Question

    Comforting arms embrace me
    Soft cloth brushes against my dirty cheek
    Perfume wafts into my burning nostrils
    Tears dry up as the woman gently pats my head
    I squeeze tighter, not wanting this blissful moment to end

    Smoke rises on this chilled morning
    Embers begin to die out
    The screaming sirens turn off
    Two adults are confirmed dead on scene

    Life hits me as I remember the fire
    Thoughts of my parents coax me to turn around
    A soothing voice pasifies my anguished nerves
    Words of reassurance replace my negative feelings
    Praying for a hopeful outcome
    I squeeze her body tighter

    Unknown vocabulary reaches my ears as a man talks to the woman
    I sit patiently awaiting my parents return
    The man looks in pain as he talks to her
    As his mouth moves, her head shakes in unison

    The woman makes her way over to me
    Her pearl smile calms my racing heart
    Warmth engulfs me as she pulls me into her chest
    I can hear sobs from behind
    Her voice cracks as she tries to speak
    Telling me I am in her care
    One question remains in my childish mind
    When will I be able to see my parents again?

    Moving Forward

    In a constant state of motion
    Watching an illusion of stillness
    Staring pensively into many happenings

    Worries forbode the passing time
    Believing an unstoppable force will cease
    Tomorrow's troubles inch closer

    Courage is earned by accepting fear
    Bravery is noted through actions
    Forgiveness is wanted from the troubled

    Nostalgia overtakes as the smell of rain invades
    Demeaning words wished to be retracted
    Reconciliation is the only solution

    Early morning sunlight brings a good omen
    Sentences escape soft pink lips
    Burdens fade away as the personal quest is completed

    Stray Dog

    A stray dog wanders aimlessly
    Across the slums of the unclean
    Limping over pungent trash in the streets
    Interweaving through a make shift of dangerous alleyways
    Screams of the innocent scar his sensitive ears
    Thugs inflict pain upon the stray daily
    Cuts and bruises litter the dog's tiny body
    Trails of blood follow him everywhere he goes
    Whimpering in pain as a plea for necessities
    Cold nights rustle his thinning coat
    Fears of an impendimg death are the only thoughts remaining
    The poor watch as he makes his journey day in and out
    Solely for the purpose of staying alive
    The saddening story of a stray dog
    Walking on death's edge waiting for his world to change

    A story about lost love.

    Her lips press softly against mine
    Blood rushes to every portion of my body
    Sounds of her voice begin to fade
    Reality sets in as I realize I'm losing her again
    The world around me transitions into an abyss of nothingness
    She is the last fragment of my illusionary world

    No more do I wish for this pain
    I can't bare the pain of having a life without you
    I reach out to grasp hold of a past memory
    Begging my mind to allow a couple of more minutes with her
    Without remorse I return to the agony known as the real world

    Tears stream without end
    Sweat drenches my bunched up sheets
    Out of instinct I turn to my right
    Hoping that the warmth of another stops my trembling hand
    Praying that her sleeping peacefully will calm my rapid breathing
    My heart aches as I touch nothing but cold air
    Color fades from my eyes
    I go slack for the sole reason of having nothing to live for
    She's gone and there is nothing I can do about it

    There is a table in the dining room
    Laughter used to emanate every evening after a long day of work
    There is a couch in the living room
    Romantic dates and idol chats forever associated with it
    There is a king size bed
    Passionate love of a married couple took place there many nights
    There is a closet full of clothes
    Beautiful garments line up nicely never to be worn again
    There is a bathroom remembered for its many tears
    Memories of sad times from a failure to have a child
    Stronger are the memories of acceptance and the bond of two people growing stronger
    There is a house that holds all of these
    It used to be filled with many emotions
    Now there are only two
    Sadness and grief

    I think back to the times spent together
    Sipping a cup of coffee at every chance I get
    My wife's death haunts me every day
    The sight of warm blood over my cold hands
    Her fading smile as she assures me she'll be okay
    The lifelessness in her eyes as the paramedics pull me away
    My mouth quivers as I reminisce the horrific accident
    Large tears are about to break through
    Then a voice whispers to me
    One nostalgia enough to halt my fit
    I quickly look to my right

    A beautiful woman with white hair blinds me
    Her feet gracefully touch down on the dirty floor
    She is wearing white garments that accentuate her physique
    Without realizing I speak the name of this woman
    She gives a loving smile
    Causing me a loss of words she speaks in my stead
    "Please sweety, do not lose sight of what is important.
    "Commiting the dark desires you have in your aching heart would cause me great pain.
    "Cherish the memories of the past. Not using them as a crux to die, but as a motivation to live."
    She walks toward me
    My eyes keep locked with hers
    "I love you and forever will."
    Her arms embrace me as her body fades away
    "Madeline... thank you my love."
    Are the only words that escape my lips
    Hope reenters my heart

    A Thief's End

    If windows broke in the midst of night
    Birds flapping and creating fright
    Wandering into the forests fray
    Hoping to the gods I am not prey
    Tripping over dead trees and leaves
    Crying amongst the thicket of dreadful thieves
    Alone at night traveling aimlessly
    Believing the right path will show ananomously
    Finding riches at the cost of life
    Repenting for the sinful deeds accomplished with a knife
    Caught years after defending an honor
    Guillotined with my head rolling through a crowd calling me "goner"
    A name for the lowest of scums
    Engraved into my passing soul for all of eternity drums

    Voyage

    This voyage transcending you to a plain of unimaginable existence

    Rocky waves represent your tumultuous beginning

    Crewmembers drinking and singing without care represents your time of apathetic living

    Hard work scrubbing the salty smelling deck represents your resolve to bettering a hated lifestyle

    A peaceful slumber represents the success of the palpable work ethic exuded

    While the beautiful blend of evening colors represents a joyous ending

    Waking up to the sight of golden lands

    Swaying trees producing a plethora of mouth watering fruits

    White tigers roam protecting this place of refuge for those who have passed

    Your life filled with pain and suffering led to this wonderous sight

    Angelic voices sing in harmony as you enter a welcoming gate

    You have entered the utopia known as heaven
