The Word

There is a word
In the dark, back wayward recesses of my brain
The perfect word
That fits the cadence and the rhyme
The word
That makes sense of all
The confusion
The word
That wonderful word
Is waiting
And all that remains
Is for me
To find it.

(Previously published in The Aurorean, Vol.5, Issue 1, Dec.1999; Poetry Soul to Soul, Apr 2002; The World's Strand Anthology,2007)

There Is A Poem (Senryu)

There is a poem
inside the heart of mankind
waiting to be born.

(Previously published in Poems Md, Apr 2008)

Throwing Away The Key

Strip away your relationships
One by one
Friend by friend by friend
By lover by parent by child
Until all that is left
Is a broken soul

Then, when you understand
And only then
Equipped with the necessary wisdom
Are you at any kind of liberty
To judge
The desperate actions
Of another.

(Previously published in Webstatic, Sept.1999; Zinos.com, July 2000)
Laurence Overmire




the cage is locked
from within
a trap set by unknowing hands
you bleed
through pores of disgruntled flesh
for reason to find the stolen key
hidden in some dark socket
of a primitive skull
and hope
like a feather
upon the improvident air
lightly brushing the iron shackles
and floating
like a question
just barely out of reach...

(Previously published in L'Intrigue, Aug 1999; Poetry and Art, Feb 2001)
