The Promise by A. Klesath

Heart spinning, mind racing, no spacing I cannotĀ pick you up from the darkness you have become- you have been here before and you will find your way out the door. When hope glimmers, shimmers in space behind solid ground- I am here as you have always found. This holeĀ is not real; not made of steel-…

Inside Out by A. Klesath

Into the depths we climb; forever our hearts combine. Listen to the rhythm; march to a different drum. Mindful of each step as the edges scrape our feet. Embrace a past long forgotten, Released from bondage; discover strength from sound. Giving up is not an option- Find the truth and discover beauty profound.

I Lived, I Loved, I Laughed by A. Klesath

We come into this world naked and unashamed and then something happens. We live in a world where fear rules all and judgement is the norm. As a child we are teased when we fall, make mistakes, wear the wrong thing, say something weird etc. We are taught to conform to a norm that does…

Narcissistic Fate by A. Klesath

Like a spider in a web; I am caught up in your lies. Sticky, ooze penetrating through my fate. Finally I can see the light! But the web is too thick and I cannot break free. I see the power you have over me Helpless from my naivety; I could not comprehend Moment of clarity!…

Good News, the End of the World is near . . . . A. Klesath

This morning I read that Friday is the end of the world. It is related to the full moon lunar eclipse. Even though I have heard this many times before, I took this news as a great relief. I don’t have to go to work on Monday, I don’t have to fight the grasshoppers as…

Please Listen, Please Hear by A. Klesath

A great magician knows how to deter the audience from seeing how the magic trick works by diverting attention. Right now we are being distracted to the real truth. We argue politics, semantics, religion, and sexual orientation; which sadly can rise up to murderous rage. However, we are not arguing about depleted soil, starvation, polluted…

Mindless Typing by A. Klesath

Dancing across a naked skyline, forever bending forward; Mindless animation- forget the task at hand, why are we here again? Forever lost in continuity; Cannot grasp the night, when daylight is long forgotten. For in darkness, we seek insight, and in light we pull the blinds. Can we seek a better way? The old way…

Chance Taken by A. Klesath

I am a lioness Pure gold slyness, not dust: solid. Not melting in mold. Rising from fire; Boiling, churning, rising, expanding For me, I climb ever higher, Touching the night sky: bursting through. No dust to disintegrate, I integrate into myself Fine, pure, solid. Left alone, to my own, Finding Finding Out of design No…

Shackles on Turtle’s Back by A. Klesath

Break the mold-bust the shackles, Scream passion to the wind! Lost on top of a mountain, shrouded in clouds of material possessions, blinding us into madness. In darkness we bleed; In light we are bound, Lies lined up as beautiful gems, distracting our focus. A shadow in the corner of our eye, it slips, we…

Love is the Drug You Need by A. Klesath

I cannot hold your hand as you cross the street. I cannot pick you up and hug you when you fall, All I can do is sit on the sidelines waiting, holding my breath as you take the shot, listening to the buzzer- while everything hangs in the balance. I dream for you, but my…
