Saturday Mix – Tanka

flashing west coast sky

minutes move forward time lost

dark awakening

morning brightens east coast sun

lingering days nighttime falls

feeling abandoned

lost scared alone and wasted

never satisfied

eyes opened to life’s despair

claims her power to reform

The Final Hour

softly she whispered

as her final hour had come,

she transitioned to

a place where pain and sadness

are gone, never to return.

softly, gone, hour

Blank Stare

that wispy smile begs

the question of your strayed love

has my nerves anxious,

your touch is void of feeling,

blank stare hiding you cheated
