Scraps of Poetry


Once they were alive
All these people of my past,
Fleeting acquaintances.

Now forged darkly against
 a background of black
The warrior waits in the
 wings to attack.

And if by some ancient design
I manage to pull through,
Where will existence take me -
Running away from you.

*	*	*	*

In a land of purity
Away from the crowds,
I will see you surely
Somewhere amongst the clouds

I will allow my stream of consciousness
Once again to take shape
In a pure white rapture

*	*	*	*

I tried to write a poem
But the word came out all wrong.
I tried to write a sonnet
I tried to write a song.

I tried to laugh so false
I tried to wait in vain
I tried to ease my hatred
I tried to ease my pain.
