Sweet moon, fail now to dog my steps
As I blunder in darkness,
Stumble and stagger,
Weaving your light blinds me to madness.

Let your rays fall onto oceans and deserts,
Forests of treetops,
Fields of long grasses,
Not on the road that I must now travel.

Bring me the shadows that I know as home,
Candles and muses,
Paintings and incense
Light should not follow me as I roam.

Next time I won't drink the cab fare....

Sorrowful Heart

Sorrow broke the savage heart,
For denied was it to thee,
And rage was caught all unawares,
Within a dying sea.
Mirth could not give it succour,
Nor pity mend the jagged tears,
And nor could the stars of darkened night
Bewitch to light the hopeless stares.

No breath of wind could move the weight,
No blow could break its hold,
And stillness rocked the heart to sleep,
And dreams of bitter cold.

One day I'll find my hairdryer again....
