Cascade free
From the comfort
Of level ground

As a rolling silhouette
From the high perch
Of luxury

The mountainside
Bedlam bruises
And skewers savagely

Yet the mind
Drifts from panic
In a full embrace
Of grizzly fate

Go the vacant ones
Consigned to peril
In the mists below
Pedaling in reverse
I speed through former years
Full with dismay
And the careless droning present

Across battered roads
The great chasms
I've left unmended 

Where rivers gush
With the turmoil of old
With the vigor I've lost

I backtrack
With the greatest haste
Through the sprawl of evergreens
The teaming refuge of youth 

How I once loved
And thrived heartily
Untethered, lost and hopeful

But I must defer
From the gathering fog
And trail on, brazen
For the tragedy nested afar
I am
The powerless fawn
Wallowing in the tatters
Of his own bloodied flesh

I am damned
A withering shell
The fading shadow
Of a stouthearted buck

My smoke-filled demise
Was an unseen horror
For the reaper's  beckon
Once lingered, far from here

My last stream of wind
Is a fable of caution
Risen, from the death rattles
As a gift
For all careless passersby
Wading chest deep
The wind
Is pressed from my lungs

In the vise
Of daily squalor
My ceaseless
Masculine war

“Take the reins”
Is the mindless refrain
Instilled in all sons
In the blossoming hearts of kings

”Seize the helm”
Falls away from my ears
As a quiet reverie
Cold and long forsaken

Still I wade
Chest deep
Armed with feign composure

Having mended
My train of thought
Striding from the blaze
To the jeers of watchful kin
In Full Retreat
A poem about not feeling very masculine. 
There were railroads
Etched deep
Across the span
Of her porcelain flesh

Each mile
Was a shrill cry
Released from the caverns
Buried within

She hung close
Like a high noon shadow
Clutched to any form
With a harrowing thirst

Still her words burn
With urgency
As a roving echoe
At the close 
Of each passing day

To have been 
Fully conscious
At her prime

To have seen
The billowing
Steam of havoc

What might have been
Is my sure
And slow demise
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.
