Poem: Don’t Ask Me Why

Don’t ask me why the birds have stopped singing. I don’t know why they have have gone silent on a beautiful day like today. Somewhere else, the day is not so beautiful, in fact, it is nighttime. The owls are hooting and not letting… Continue Reading “Poem: Don’t Ask Me Why”

Poem: Death of N.R.Y.G.

Pick up the phone, no one answers. I miss you already, and search for a dial tone. On a cold night, the heat rises too high. Quell the sadness by any means. Unnecessary to state the obvious. There is no headstone and no etched… Continue Reading “Poem: Death of N.R.Y.G.”
