haiku september 2014

1.
beats of a war drum
decaying in the distance
-autumn falling fast

2.
weary eyes shut to
the silent autumnal night
-a victim of time

3.
-Invisible chains
stars Glittering softly
above a quiet street

4.
-these terrors made flesh
lies and secrets walk among
us in empty rooms

5.
empty eyes glaring
under the pale moonlit sky
-unbroken silence

6.
-Our little secrets
traces of the night before
tangled in your hair

7.
weeds grow steadily
though the cracked and crumbling
pavement of the roadside
the passing days slowly grind
us down to a bitter pulp

8.
-at winters mercy
the dying call of the last
crickets of summer

9.
Shards and fragments of
my subtle thoughts collecting
-a single teardrop

10.
Patiently Waiting
for the nothingness to pass
-Yet life goes on…

11.
-barbarians at the gate
our thoughts looming like shadows
in the moonlit streets

12.
-Just radio waves
The echoes of heated words
burning in my throat

13.
the early morning
streets eclipsed in her stillness
-blank space between words

14.
Haunted eyes evermore
holding to their blank gaze
-The nights endless black
