Half Of Me

Poem By Paul Perkins

Half of me - 1999

Half of me left me-
in his heart,
with considerable thought,
he did what he felt
he must do;

Though I see it,
I do not want to believe it;

It feels that life itself
is torn out of me;
yet, I have joy for him.

I asked myself
how much I loved him;
my silence
was my reply.

A Ripened Age

I've reached a ripened age of little left to save.
Value - Importance - Need
All words that slowly or rapidly can change in meaning.
The gift we have within is living in peace without.

Dark Enchantment

Dark Enchantment - 2018

In a red New Mexico moon lit sky,
long night's capering shadows


Although for me there's seldom haste,
I could not, if I wanted, stop.
The elders, I leave in a chase,
and children let me go to waste;

City In Survival

City in survival

Revolving as whirlwind,
stern force flies in
