City of Avenues

The Lioness that Dwells Within

A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness
Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength
Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness
Embrace her and harrow Man's badlands of descent

Rocks of conformity will bruise perception
Caves of compliance will shun the light
Manufactured mediocrity will overcast oneness
Eclipsing creativity with artificial night

Pave your path through the prairies of selfdom
Even when animosity tears at your flesh
Canyons of coveting will echo their envy
While trails of reality challenge your steps

As beads of exhaustion drip off your body
And welted wisdom breaches and bleeds
Intellectual tears will water possibilities
Awakening the somnolent seeds of your dreams

Crystallize the salt from your silent suffering
Dismantle the dissonance that deafens your moors
Mine the minerals that encumbered your journey
And mold precocious diamonds from their obsidian ore



Pinch of pepper:
Within each one of us a lioness dwells. This poem is dedicated to her.

in the shadows of waning light
two senescent lovers lie / between sheets of waning light. the moon spins the dis·s·ever·ing tale / of their relentless nothingness. / apathetic eyes beseech the dark / for glimpses of deserted memories. two bodies / lie list·less / bre…
Coming Home
Sitting on speed, metal wings in flight / black ribbons below adorned in sequins of light / screeching engines startle Night / as Time descends / Feet on ground baggage bound / metal scales bear the weight of / folded clothes and memories and / gi…
The Desert
Naked wastelands of monotony / Exhausting days of bruising suns / Under a lee of memory / Wayward winds churn crystals to dust Time evaporates into slips of silence / Arid air mourns its temperamental loss / Desert beckons those who are daring / …
Cogito Ergo Sum
Trees of autumn weep their beauty / Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth / Intellectual tears of / I think therefore I am / Cry molecules of philosophy / Over deaf grasses of high tech generations / I am the last leaf / Clinging desperately onto…
