Farewell Fairy Tale

As I say goodbye to the moment,
I see the dust that remains but wonder where went the jewel.
Like the last grain of clay that remains after a potter completes an ornament,
I feel separated from it all and helplessly bid farewell.

How can I deny
When I look so bare?
How can I lie
Yet still absorb your air?

Why should I try
And how could I dare?
Why wait until another season goes by
And would that be fair?

Fall Fiction

As the season transitions,
So does my spirit.
Although it is an exorcism of legions,
A part of me still remains fiendish.

A Diamond On Death row

They say you are forever
But they are deluded

One day you’ll meet your maker
Just as a romance is concluded

So when the cock crows
They will see your flaws

And that is how you know
You are a stone’s throw from death row
