Through the bare branches
The morning cried
Cloaked, in fine tailored grey

Swaying to the song
Of crows and foghorns
The sparring melodies
Of grief

The sly mist
Crept inside my skull
With the first stream of wind
I joyfully reaped

My inner world turned
Engulfed, by shades of gloom
And I trembled fearful
As I cleaved, the greater grim world

A chill claimed my spine
And my nerves went dull
Frostbitten and uncaring
With each hour
I left forgotten
Her peril still rings
Through those smoldering ruins
Where I’ll never tread
With a vast
Arsenal of strength

She lingers at the stern
Barely forgotten
As the terrible scream
I dream to evade

“Where have you gone?”
Is her piercing refrain
That drives my conscience
To savor, each morsel of regret

“How could I?”
Larks only from within
As a traveling ghoul
In pursuit
Of each step I take
She Trusted You
It has been over a year since I've last spoken to an old friend of mine. I doubt she'll ever want to speak to me again, and all i can do is wish her well in life.  This poem was very difficult for me to write.
All I have
Are the white walls
That cradle my discontent

The dreary home
Of bliss and bedlam
Where I am cornered
By the raging seas of fear

Self- involved
The earth falls to shards
Through the hollow panes
Of a heart at bay

Fully engulfed
By disloyal thoughts
I shatter within
Undone,by harbored sorrow
I surrender
In the restless deep of fear

As nightfall showers
All around
And I crumble
By the binds of panic

My thoughts are hollow
And left for the fog
To be preyed upon by voices
By daylight’s static mayhem

Few words
Can flee these lips
When the dark
Has laid its claim

When time drags
And drones without motive
And sleep
Is the lone road
To the warmth of honest relief
The world's he kept
All tremored the same
In the scalding flash
Before, the sprawl of night

A wall of white
Set the soils ablaze
And gorged savagely
Upon the lives, tenderly sown

How they dreamed
To draw in the morning wisp
To unfold masterfully
Bold, beautiful and tragic

They now stream
Beyond his battered flesh
In lockstep
For the great drainage of time
My laptop will not boot up. I keep getting a screen that says: configuring updates stage 3 of 3. Its loads for two minutes and then the computer restarts. Can someone help me? Ive tried everything short of setting the damn thing on fire!  I might have to use my tablet to post new poems, which would be really frustrating.
