Silent Silhouette and Lost Love

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


Time sneaking a smiling silhouette's face

Bringing my soul apart with lover quiet.

Life is not a cage of pain, nor a guilded race.

Life was formerly a bit of joy, love, and might.

Crawling at dusky evening breezes

Sagegrass castles that I once built on promised vows

A sip of darkened wine my lids now easing.

Nothing muted, nothing promised, no wink allowed.

Just a man alone racing against a woman's name

Skeletons gain and I sing a dungeon's plea.

A serpent's tongue passes me with a wizard so tame.

So lay me down quietly as I drift off to her sea.
