Save the Saboteur

I have lost someone vital to me
Will you help me find them,
Wherever they’ve planted
Their serpentine roots?

Something’s come loose
Will you keep me in place
Before I fall,
Asunder and suddenly confess?

My dreams are but a sea of ash and bone
Will you help me clear a path
To the forests I’ll burn,
Tomorrow and onward?


Buried in Raven Black

I willfully invert myself
In her pitch black stare
Cast out,
From a distant cluster of stars

Again and again
I invert myself
In her wounding glance,
When I’ve died there before

Overflowing Gutters by William Wright, Jr.

Creative Talents Unleashed

The world

Overflowed with rage

Unleashed in panicked streams

For the gutters of his mind

And all too soon

He staggered

In the curves of his youth


On the fumes of mankind

In his hollow gaze

Was the stroll of kin

For whom he lovingly strained

From infernal distress

All too soon he was crushed

In the surge

In the foam of the world


And boiling with strife

Noctilucent Clouds

He is often overcooked,
When the day disintegrates;
Cooling off beneath the stars

On a nocturnal cloud,
Chasing clarity
Around and around in his mind
Until he’s tethered in place

When his scorned reveries
Have finally frozen over,
He’ll be dragged underground
Filled and content with never knowing

The Quick-March of Saints

I felt the rumble
I saw the blast
I fell,
Slashed open
By a thunderous wind

Deafened and rattled,
I soared from the encircling flames
On the back of a blood-stained stretcher

Severed in one move,
From the weary moans of old friends,
I was rocked to sleep,
By the quick-march of saints

The Aftermath by William Wright Jr.

Creative Talents Unleashed

It is only a dream
That thrashes around
In a hellfire arc
Each day

The illusion consumes
With a sickly greed
For our fragile yearnings
Our failings and fears

Perhaps we’ll awaken
To luxuries unknown
Or in a vessel restored
At the ready, for a world re-spawned

Who knows
Without a sliver of doubt?

Creative Talents Unleashed


Such a pretty young woman,

her slender lithe body framed

by the soft velvet red light

An invitation to come

into her world of delicacy

She smiles,

without a sparkle in her dead eyes

She shines,

due the resplendence of the lanterns

Eighteen years old,

fallen for the false lure

to find a better place,

to provide for her family

Devoid of money,

she’s forced to spread her legs,

just to survive

An insecure future,

an unknown country

This little flower

will slowly fade

Stillness After the Crowd

The festival
Is now just a distant gathering of voices
Fading, to a midnight
Church bell’s lament

Some are lost to the mazes
Of spent fanfare,
In the unspoiled stillness,
Breathing sanity at last

These feral kings and queens
Now engulf the sparse nights
With their defiant red blaze
