Tripping Over Sleeping Lovers

Stranger on the riverbank
Walk the rolling waves
Blowing wind and make-believe
Wash it all away

Hunter on the soft hillside
Turn your eyes within
Tattoo of a predator
Belies your victim skin

Beggar of the offered nest
Hungry for a gem
Stacking golden towers up
Just to scatter them

Archer on the bridge between
Aiming for the sun
Trajectory of tragedy
Wake up, Fool, and run

  1. this makes me want to read more of your work…..

    • Be sure to check back, then! I intend to update this blog daily, if inspiration strikes. And when inspiration doesn’t strike, I have close to 500 poems I’ve written over the last 10 years… quite a lot of it is worth sharing, or so I’ve been told, so it’s bound to end up here.
      Thank you for reading! :)

  2. Nice poem and formatting!

  4. There’s a marvellous sense of mystery in this. Excellently done.

  5. I love this – especially “Trajectory of tragedy” . I had to say it aloud. The whole thing reads beautifully.
