The Desert Path

Poem By Andrew Hussey

Put it in again,
this embryonic plague
calls me home and leaves me breathless

I have fallen heroes
clinging to my back for a moment in the flame,
moths with wings transparent as night sky
and antenaes seeking blood in the water.

I've drawn outside the lines again
and can spare no more blood for the inkwell,
this book is greek to you
crimson shadows to steal my sight
and draw the blinds.

The bondage of this path
betrays the strength of spirit we need to walk it
and pulls warriors into the bog
not to transcend but to fade away;
ethereal and lost in the hearts sea.

Oasis' dawn in the desert field
to reveal sand dunes to pull us away,
into nothing
obscurity and failure.

not again, please.

Other poems of HUSSEY

Midnight's Dream

When the cradle of midnight settles in these bones
and the night envelops,
untilizes us to it's whims

Colors Of Spring

I feel like I can't draw
this sun through the eye of a needle.

This expanding merry-go-round of farce

Midsummer Day

Luminescent eyes peer eerily from above,
Oh, if this world-wearied flesh could speak
What tales you would hear.
From the blissful ecstasy of a midsummer day

The Bi-Leveled Deceit

This is of two levels,
That, on which land-bound fish tread,
And the other on which truth seeking eagles


A garden of macabre delights,
through a window pane found looking
a young man pricks his eye.
