Shadows (2005r)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

Your shadows danced in and out of my periphery.
You've caressed my mind and gave comfort when needed.
Touches, voices, spirits imparted, and journeys taken.

But no One ever seems to last for long.
You come, you dance, you depart for lands unknown.
My irritating light drives you all away.
I am left here to ponder gifts received and knowledge glimpsed.

I walk a road no one wishes to share except as shadows.
Posted as grave stones along a path I alone must travel.

Liquid Sky (2005r)

Give to me one more kiss.
Impart your spirit on my memory.
Chill my heart with a touch.
Ignite me with a glance.

House Of The Haunted (2005r)

Once again I've returned,
here I sit watching ghosts.
In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

Set Me Free (2005r)

Tie me down and set me free.
Peer into me and make me sting.
Flay my flesh, release my soul.
Make me cry, make me bleed.

The Room (2005r)

I've walked the streets of London.
Set sail for the shores of France.
Found tequila
on the beaches of mexico.

Son (For J.M.W. My Little One) (2005r)

The waves crash the shore,
like the thoughts in my mind.
And the storm swells
to the point of breaking.

Untitled (Ix) (1993)

Do you understand what you hear?
Can you afford to see the truth?
Look past your preconceptions,
forget the stories told from a thousand lips.
