Poem By Paul Brookes

you killed me with your prayers
each day I die on the sunset
but I cannot be reborn
the dead never rise except in longed for wishes.

words winging heaven wards,
angels tears dried in the heat
scalding in the rage from below.

Musical Drips

rains incessant
all morning falls
skies fifty shades of grey
the gutters overflow, a Niagara
