Poetry Wednesday – Dragon

Dragon

Onyx dragon dancing
In the corners of
My night memory
Grasping a roll of parchment
Between his blood-stained talons
I plead to read for
I know it is meant
To be seen by my eyes
And mine alone yet
He does not surrender
Acknowledge my rights as
If I am not ready
To know what the night
Wishes for me as it
Stretches long like the
Onyx dragon’s tail
Curling around my corners

Poetry Wednesday – Wail

Wail

Long to write about
Anything other than you
Finally felt I had broken
Your tantalizing spell
Words beyond your grace
Did flow so beautiful
Than you re-emerged
Macabre butterfly
Spreading poetic disease
All-encompassing on
My pen and paper
Wail I do
A binding spell
Over and over again
Yet you haunt me
Poisoning the ink within
My exhausted psyche

Poetry Wednesday – Flaws

Flaws

Improvements to the self
Always striving
But for what ends do I
Suffer in this journey
Can I not be enough without
These changes intense
In their challenge to
Improve supposed flaws
I have been convinced I
Contain within leading me
Astray down lonely paths
Constantly seeking new
Where I never truly fit
Yet I try – always failing
Thinking my flaws are too
Great not that the journey
Is the wrong one

mourningfrontcover

This week’s Poetry Book Wednesday feature is the brand new release, Mourning & Melancholia. It is my 21st full-length poetry book. This is a very exciting milestone as I never considered the possibility of so many published books. Mourning & Melancholia did take longer to write than I had originally anticipated yet I am immensely delighted with the poems completed.

One hundred poems inscribed on fallen angel feathers mired in melancholia and marked with what prevails the mourning after

Mourning & Melancholia is available through Amazon. Kindle – $2.99 and Paperback – $9.99. The other 20 of my currently published poetry books and numerous chapbooks can also be found on Amazon.
