Why Cant I Do This? !

Poem By joe vigil

Shells of my lost memories
Linger inside my empty hands
Sorrow left empty burrows inside my heart
All my tears consumed by an unforgiving world of pain
I am left holding onto an empty face
My happiness was taken away by the winds of time
I am a broken pot in need of a potter
A dry bed of a long gone river
Exposed to the harsh elements of time
My life was sucked dry by my fleeing stories
My bones left to rot inside my decaying life
I am a shell of my former self
A ghost in need of a resting place

Long Distance Love

dear beloved
time flies unheeded
our days apart stretched
our love tormented

Fear Is A Brutal Foe

Fear is a battalion of mercenary chemicals
Capable of incapacitating even the most hardened of individuals
In the absence of faith, hope, Love and sometimes courage
Fear is stealthily deployed to incinerate the mind, body and spirit


Born out of joy
Jovial moments are captured
By the wavering laughter
Bursting out of a happy heart


the bold eagle
flying far above your head
in times of peace
masquerading as a dove

A New Humanity

Deep inside the river of consciousness
Beautiful pearls are being created
Beyond the imagination of men (and women)
Life is being re-configured and refined

True Love

It is not the heart
That waits for your Love
It is the whole of eternity
Always ready to welcome you
