Poems from way back

Published on:

I haven’t posted in quite a while and I still don’t have time to come up with anything to say, so here are a couple poems that I wrote a long, long time ago. I don’t claim to be good at writing poems, they’re just my poems & nothing more. They’re not about anything spiritual or thought provoking or anything. All they are is imagery. Don’t over-analyze. I don’t want to tell you what they mean, but they do have meaning… a singular meaning per poem (they at least have a story). All of the following are copyrighted and all rights are reserved.

Without further delay:


Fire in my Bones – 2005-06-01; 1:56am

I need a cold shower

To try to squelch the fire

The fire in my bones.

I’m losing my life

I’m burning from the inside

Inside my bones

Where did this come from?

Where did it start?

It must have begun here in my heart.

Then it grew from there

It flew from there

Here in my fingers; my toes.

My marrow is melting now

I can see your face somehow

Through the smoke escaping my eyes.

Like a dragon now

Spewing this fire

This fire in my bones

Let it burn.


Outrunning Eternity 2005-08-15

Wading through the river

I glance to my rear

And I see the monster bearing down on me

No time to think, I tread even further

Step by Step and moment by moment

I pass by some — and yet too slow for others

I begin gaining ground

I’m outrunning Eternity

Until battered down by the impure waves, thrashing

I slip to the left, but do not falter

On I go and go

An explosion to my left, I can feel it coming

I’m surrounded

I must press on, though I know not why

It seems unending, unrelenting

I’m outrunning eternity

Close enough to taste, but I cannot sop


I’m lost

Too good to be true!

The darkness looms

Chasing me now

My eyes are clear

I’m outrunning eternity

Just me and the cows now

they fly as the pigs

In one fluid motion

The trees are thrown in pain

I cannot be slowed; cannot be stopped

As I outrun eternity

And only I streak as lightning

Through time and space

As I outrun eternity


That’s all for now.

These do need to be edited and refined, but I don’t care. Don’t steal.
