    Reasons For Poems

    I've awakened with the moon
    in daylights grip
    Tasted the soul of the
    man who picked the beans of
    my mug of joy
    I've sought the darkness
    and survived somehow
    I've breathed the names of fallen
    heroes and
    never smelled what drove them
    I've watched a child I named
    never speak a word to me
    I've seen sunrises
    that have touched the earth
    and sunsets that run from
    the sky that birthed it
    I've seen the light of a star
    whose light is billions of years old
    I've watched you sleep
    in whirlwinds of horrid dreams
    and admired your beauty
    as the demons fell
