The blog Tainted Verse now has two poetry readings from the book Angel Tears.  A talented young drama student, Amber Rose, has done a great job expressing the emotions that underlie two of my favorite pieces from my first published work.

Yeah...raging, genius.  Not everyone sees the funny in everyday stuff...not everyone can write it down  and express the funny.  Ok, maybe not raging, that makes it sound like you rant; but comic genius fits :)  The way you describe Jens is really hysterical, my sister and I found it really entertaining.

Haunting
I am the excellence of loneliness I am the echo of the wide copper canyon The winds of the desert, searching for a place to rest... I am the silence of the wilderness The streams of light pouring through the grand sequoia tre...

A Reason to Breathe

A reason to breathe
Divine rights free will
To each his own
Empty soul 
Who will remove the twisted cord?
Hanging loudly about your neck
Challenging all who look upon your 
Furrowed brow
Contemplating fate 
As if she will loosen the tie that binds
Caress your freedoms
They harbor your needs
They control the night light
Tempting you to see
Beneath such an arrogant facade
A reason to breathe

Moving On

Distant memories echo sweet
To feed the ones who must be fed
Flesh exists to feed the spirit
Why such thoughts of death
The eyes of her youngest child
Demanded that she smile
Mistakes turn to denial
Plant seeds soon reviled

The man asleep beside her
Grunts his dreams as if in pain
Then wakes to spit an order
She is a slave he plans to tame
His thoughts never near completion
She has chosen to make a stand
She will force him to see
What it is to be a man


Resistant to the disruptive thoughts
Of his bruised and angry mind
She chose to create a reality
He would never find
Searching the waters edge 
Beseeching the powers that be
He lost the only one who cared
She set her children free

The Prompt  - 
 
Smile

On the day I was born Heaven was drunk
there was a party and I know it
no one was paying attention 
I slipped out the back door
kept sliding
sliding by
sliding through
sliding around
slipping into cracks
climbing out of traps
hiking over bodies left behind
wandering through nightmares that were not mine
creeping back the way I came
wishing I could change 
one line
erase the pain
paint a new picture 
for those empty hearts
I always seem to find
hiding in my sight
words are all I have to give
so I collect them
just in case
they grow
smiles

Words are responsibles to shape up your life or otherwise. Spoken words has great power.
