Flashback Friday Poetry: The Intension of Life

how i patiently wait in the dark of night
for a brief glimpse of this magnificent sight
a sight so breath-taking with its scenery
it could save the darkest soul from misery
my search for this place to some; a mystery
no questions asked if they knew my history
in the gleam of Twilight and the light of Day
my quest for the place that will lead me away
though my life will be gone before i am through
the after-life journey will be nothing new
searching for happiness; my heart will stay true

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Last Wishes

look inside this life of mine
to find the reasons why i died
some would say the way i lived
brought about my unholy end
but i think the path i chose
was the best one, that’s what i know
so to you who hated me
i’m gone for all eternity
anyone who cared that day
when i died and i went away
though few of you there may’ve been
i hope you remember again
this sad life i fought to keep
and i lost so miserably

Spooky Poetry: Diary of Djinn

take a look in the mirror
and tell me what you see
does the image satisfy
you must reveal to me
how you truly feel inside
when the reflection gleams
is this your one desire
with me we’ll make your dreams

I come from another place
a place where magic’s real
with the snap of my finger
I can do as you will
be careful what you wish for
I’ll rearrange the deal
you’ll get what you want and then
the dream will soon be killed

I’m a trickster by nature
a rather good one too
I’ll hear your wish word for word
but it still won’t come true
with the thought of happiness
I think I’d rather spew
if you give my lamp a rub
Death’ll be waiting for you
