Three Poems

No Title:

Is time still on my side
Or is it already too late
To correct the wrong and take the blame
Of all mistakes
That I have made

Honestly I never knew
It never even crossed my mind
That phrases that I have uttered
Would be an offense to you

I was a young immature boy then
And many shapes and sizes caught my eye
As they walked on by

In my naivete
I began to fantasize
"On same gender issues"
And on occasion I brought the topic up
Just to annoy you

But I'm older now
And maybe a little wiser
I regret this and many more
Things I have said

Still, is time on my side
Or is it already too late
Will you always see the foolish boy
I once was
Or are you willing to see the Godly man
I aspire to be


Listen:

Trumpets pierce
That milky black haze
As a surgeon's scalpel
Cuts to the beating heart

Call has come
From the One
Time to go

Choir sings
Golden gates swing
Open
ECG screams it's monotone wail
Welcome
Home


Nonsense:

Narrow bed
Wide berth
Thin paperback
Tucked in left corner
Big black dog
Passing gas
Grey sleeping cat
On black/grey computer chair
Boy/man writing down
Utter nonsense
While doubt plays
Mind games
About future consequences
Thoughts fading
Broken dreams
Realized
