Song Of A Shallow Dream

Poem By Russ von Ohlhausen

Dream of love, rise to sorrow,
Seek another's bed to borrow.
Fickle heart fleeing mine,
Once to me that love divine.
Thoughts go forth in time to grieve,
Tears for me, soon short to leave.
None of equal heart replaced,
Pillow's passion poison laced.
Futile void, this pointless chase,
Have lost my fount of soul's embrace.

Dream again of heart once mine,
Slumber serves to be my shrine.
Jaded spirit turns away,
Knows this dreams fleeting stay.
Wake in the day, to heart’s deep night,
Transient chamber, soul takes flight.
Your proxy's breath I fain to breathe,
Love's dull blade rusts its sheathe.
Disputes my faith of sentimental scheme,
Singing the silent song of shallow dream.

Poets Are Losers

The art of the word yields little fruit when it's first conceived;
It must take root and grow in passionate minds if ever to be received.
A craft much learned of sadness from this world we’re in,
As we suffer right along until our solemn end.

Beautiful Destruction

A rough rain falls on the river running as a
fisher casts over tainted water, and
Black blood burns as the wars are raging and the
soldiers argue who’s hell is hotter.

Envy The Common Man

How I envy the Common Man,

To live in the world that we create.
To drift on the winds with no debate.

Lost In Thought

(A fun little diversion)

I thought I thought a thought,
a thought I thought I thought.


I melt with the snow on the tops of mountains
I babble with the voice of the humble waters
I sip from the lake on the open plains

Edge Of The Dream: Becoming The Creator

In the time before Time, there was the void of nothing that was not known,
for nothing existed to know it.
The Creator was not then the Creator
for nothing was then created.
