Trapped in a Nightmare

A pantoum

I am the ghost of oaken thresh. Steal me in your sight. Winnow the slate between these beams. - I’ll never be afar.

Steal me in your sight, Sprint me to the mountain mouth. I’ll never be afar (For my shrouded smoke surrounds).

Sprint me all to the mountain mouth To ridden me away For my shrouded smoke surrounds - Sing as you may, my dear.

To ridden me away: Winnow the slate between these beams, Sing as you may, my dear But I am the ghost of oaken thresh!

Cold Charm

With chilling claws, cackling,

The crisp autumn wind careens.

Through copper leaves, crackling

Adrift the curling navy trees.

The crisp autumn wind careens,

Craving climate's bitter breast,

Adrift the curling navy trees,

Above the pumpkin crest.

/

Craving climate's bitter breast,

A witch enchants the tempest's tail

Above the pumpkin crest,

Towards a shrouded shadow vale.

A witch enchants the tempest's tail

Through copper leaves, crackling,

Towards a shrouded shadow vale

With chilling claws, cackling.

Westerly Wind

Tonight on my patio, distance sounds like fragments of conversation carried away by a westerly wind through voices whispered in the night Like fragments of conversation, when you reveal yourself to me through voices whispered in the night you fill this empty atmosphere When you reveal yourself to me like smoke drifting from a fire, you fill this empty atmosphere the same way you will find me Like smoke drifting from a fire tonight on my patio, distance sounds the same way you will find me, carried away by a westerly wind

Time passes Just right here Mornings like butter; evenings Like, tea

Just right here, Soil like blood, Like tea. We are sitting and watching the sunset.

Soil like blood, Like going home like, Sitting and watching the sunset. Laughter like water

Like going home; like how time passes; like laughter; like water like mornings and evenings and butter

-like going home like

Meaningful words flow like water Thoughtful reflections their value bestow Below the surface where strength is found Enriching the soil & soothing the soul.

Thoughtful reflections their value bestow The deeper the drink, the stronger the growth Enriching the soil & soothing the soul Their essence clings to the branches of time.

The deeper the drink, the stronger the growth Collective roots bind the world like rope Their essence clings to the branches of time Regeneration renews the heart of the whole.

Collective roots bind the world like rope Below the surface where strength is found Regeneration renews the heart of the whole Meaningful words flow like water.

The If's

The If's chased me down at early sunset

With golden whips they chased me down

Down, there was nothing for me to confess

But the If's drove me out of town

With golden whips they chased me down

There was something I wasn't to forget

But the If's drove me out of town

And my horizon became silhoutte

/

There was something I wasn't to forget

I had it when the If's came down

And my horizon became silhouette

Trying to loop back into town

/

I had it when the If's came down

Down, there was nothing for me to confess

Trying to loop back into town

The If's chased me down at early sunset

The Terrible Two

Little Timmy just turned two

He's loosening his parents screws

"No" is his favourite word to use

His parents don't know what to do

Hes loosening his parents screws

Climbing walls into other rooms

His parents don't know what to do

He's painted all the ceilings blue

Climbing walls into other rooms

He's wearing nothing but his shoes

He's painted all the ceilings blue

He's burning out his parents fuse

Among the Stars

A camp for souls who live among the stars I’m so happy that I get the chance to go Maybe some of us will get to go to mars One day this will all be so long ago

I’m so happy that I get the chance to go Two weeks of learning of the world above One day this will all be so long ago Like when I saw the sky and fell in love

Two weeks of learning of the world above Working together to discover all Like when I saw the sky and fell in love This is truly a moment for recall

Working together to discover all A camp for those who live among the stars This is truly a moment for recall Maybe some of us will get to go to mars
