Dreams of the Moth

Happy Face

The other side
Of life

Yet Prophesied 

Carved into your arm
By the dull edge 
Of a knife

Gold and silver
Leave the eyes dazzled
For treasure

Aching muscles 
Constantly shiver
With the frozen stone stare
That your eyes deliver

Time slipped by
Forgetting to testify
The last arrow
Of the quiver

Hanging your stomach 
Upside down
Your spine sends a shiver
Stopping life 
Dead in its tracks

The colors of the world 
Invert themselves

Salvage your humility
Absorb the bitter taste
Put on your mask
To fend off the rising sun
Shadow your disgrace
Show me your happy face

Just a Bug

The clouds 
Are walking 
All over the sun

Lifting Spirits
Its time to run

Privately whispering
Of his fears for tomorrow
Daylight's sweet dreams
Impending his sorrow

Flying in circles 
Nocturnal Intrusion 
Glowing lights
Define his fascination

Acquiring a taste
With a fasting stomach

Fluttering for salvation
In a moment of abduction

      Thanks friends! The poetry and photos are fun for me because i take what i see and think and transform them into something else. Something different that others too may be able to use to get a second glimpse
