Sunrise And Sunset (1988r)

Poem By Patrick Wescott

From my perch I see it in the distance,
climbing that unseen ladder to the sky.
It rises upward with no resistance,
and from under the bridge I wonder why.

Why has god given us this ball of light,
and the beauty that it gives off each day?
It doesn't seem fair to see this sight,
when our world can not have beauty in this way.

To see it rise, then have it fall again,
makes us wonder how small we really are.
I can't wait for the day we will win,
and can see it close, not from scopes afar.

Until that day I will just have to sit,
and watch for the sunrise and the sunset.

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

here I sit watching ghosts.
In the house of the haunted
where I buried the past.

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.

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.
