Unfurled

Scars and wounds afflict this tortured heart
From battles won and lost valiantly;
This causes cynicism to impart
Its hollow creed to rot inside of me.

Deserted and abandoned all alone
Was how I lived despite my aching soul,
Bruised and beaten, hope itself unknown,
My weathered mind had surely paid the toll.

Stormy days raged skyward from up above,
Little chance for light to pierce the great expanse,
But winds do often change persisting love
To move from naught; endearing thoughts advance.

If but a single draft would catch the sail,
Bring wayward, lonely Love back without fail.

Aging

Posted in Poetry, Random Thoughts with tags , , , , on August 20, 2015 by bigtuna185

Aging is a funny concept 

Because it’s not so much

The passing of time

As it is the growing awareness

Of things that have changed. 

Whisperer

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , on October 3, 2013 by bigtuna185

Unbridled, untamed, and free
Sprinting unashamed in the wind
Twisted wild mane flowing
Soft grassy hills imprinted with footsteps
A trail to be tracked by bold explorers
A dangerous prize awaits at journey’s end

You reign over your territory
Like a paranoid queen upon her throne
Eyes darting crazily
Expecting sabotage
Awaiting assassination
Sentencing hearts to their doom because of troubled pasts

Where is your saintly knight to ease a sorrowed mind?
Where is the whisperer to break the shell of mistrust?
To gently brush your hair?
To adorn you with the fittings suitable for so majestic a creature?
Bestowing hushed tones and hope to break a haughty spirit

May he always nobly serve you
In humility, in gratitude, in encouragement, and in love
The whisperer will never forsake you, troubled maiden
For he will forever be the voice in your ear
The song in your heart
And the light in your soul.

Moments before change,
Grains of sand trapped in stasis;
Destiny Awaits.
