That's absolutely beautiful Kilted, really does capture the essence of the human condition as you said. Thank you Centurion for the link, will have to check that out soon and thank you also for the kind words.

Prune the bush, that rose that fell, my heart it took with it, the soft ground has it now, use it well friend, use it well, I cannot bear to use it anymore

Hey Kilted, thought you might like this,

New feet within my garden go-
New fingers stir the sod
A troubadour upon the elm
Betrays the solitude.

New children play upon the green-
New weary sleep below,
And still the pensive spring returns,
And still the punctual snow.

Emily Dickinson

What I read as a very touching and melancholic poem from one of your master wordsmiths

Yet more drivel lol sorry guys, but I enjoyed writing this one

Let it slide away from me, a branch that splintered from the tree into the broken wind
The leaves green with life, are speckled along its sprawled fingers grey
Let it slip away and fall to the ground, and nourish the soft brown earth
Life lives on though death's gone past
Let sorrow ring but do not let it last.

Here I sit, boredom ruling my mind, it spreads its wide webby fingers to the furthest corners of my brain and settles in for the winter.
It is a dull cave clothed in grey, awaiting the morn
Here I sit, with heart ruled in kind, it is a lonely thought, hope leads me to believe it will end soon.

I wanted to say I love you like the words were in my hand, like they roamed forward of their own accord and flooded Empirical Land. Like they grew limbs and lives of their own and basked in front of you, and let me stay forevermore in this reverie I wish was true
Love they say is the best of three and in one it is the best of all, from lingering round those loved ones, that feel it from one foot tall
and all they do is wish to be loved and linger on in such, believing this is the stuff of life and never sated enough
but we all know that love is true and only truth brings us to tears, for it does linger all about us, giving golden edges to our fears
Be lucky enough to find some one, who feels the same as you? Does that make it love for real? As though its the only love that'll do?
Just let me feel it in my heart and don't hold the feelings back, it floods my brain like nothing else, as if it were the only thing it lacked. Through this written medium, I give my life in song, but its all come out as glpyhs and text, text that can be written, wrong.
But where is truth when you feel like this if the words of truth are not in hand? It lies in the only truth of which truth exists in that idealistic land, so where are you empirically and can you for sooth be sought? Or do you only linger in me, linger on as lonely thought?
In any case the impetus that brought me here, started when I conversed with you, and let this feeling linger on, though it may not be true.

In the hope that you lads'll like this!


Ready! Aim! FIRE! Then kick your dead aside! and move ever forward for the nation's solemn pride! Keep those muskets roaring! as we fight towards the glade, over the brambled thicket and over men we've slayed, then shoot the men on horses and from beast's backs they'll fall, and join the other rankers to swell the harpie's thrawl, then stand before their general with promised peace in hand, guaranteed with blood that's reddened peaceful land
All of this we fought for, I led you lads didn't I? So follow me now a sinner as I pray for those that die.

I sit here, a lonely, lonely, room, trapped, encased, encapsulated, longing for freedom, it comes,
Be it black glyph that frees my mind, or gentle tap tap on white keys, the pain recedes
It drifts off on a memory, a soft, quiet, breeze, thought that dissolves into mist, like an old treasured time
Not quite remembered, not quite forgotten, how I feel at present, what a sweet, sweet, sentiment.

These are beautiful. It took me awhile to find them, but I'm glad I did. Thanks for posting.

well brother, you can have two for the price of one : )


One and the same (31&32)

I faltered and I loved it, a passion flamed in me, so that all I could see was fire, a flaming totality, my eyes they roved with pleasure from sight to wicked sight, and my libidinous side did tingle, with carnal laced delight. I flickered for a moment, towards the soulful side, though I dismissed it in an instant, knowing why I’d lied, back to the search to feed, and feed till fed no more, then take a breath and become disordered, and darker than before. I truly loath this place, this filthy pit of sin, but I cannot find strength to stop now, though I swore I’d not begin, I'll take that lie and I’ll keep it, a solid golden key, that keeps me in light of innocence, guilty though I be.
A voice continued to whisper, but I turned my head aside,
'Come saint, save a sinner who has faltered in his stride
He walks now, on a path, all clogged with thorn and weed
and though at times his heart doth shine, his soul’s in dire need
So come saint, save a sinner, from his cesspool full of sin
Give him strength to be strong again, give him strength now to begin




In love we stand united, sitting hand in hand, in hope of earthly consecration, of a single solid band, that our hearts might grow together and to borrow, become entwined, and that you and I might share, one happy, heightened mind. I love you my girl, I love you, just hold me dear to you, and I shall bath once daily in this well which springs anew, kiss me, dare to kiss me and I, my lips will give, to you dear girl forever, or as long as I shall live

The first, I read with a smile. I know that place, and your words do it more than justice. The second I find more complicated, a little scarier, but welcome, nonetheless. It's just easier to be weak, I guess. Thank you!

Ah you're welcome mate, thank you for your very kind words and I like the fact that it stirs something in you. This one I wrote tonight, a little different I suppose

I seek it with my mind's eye, knowing that somewhere hidden in the damp grey mist lurks the black door. My focus sharpens, from the empty space behind me emanates a shrill childish whimper. Adrenaline tears through the silent wonder as my vision distinguishes sharp edges from the monotonous swirling mass. I dare to extend my arm, my limb for borrowing, both lifeless and flat and with mounting trepidation, I use it to caress the door’s smooth bevelled edges. The whimper had brought me back for a moment, to the light of reason, and yet it did not posses the strength to dismiss the urges of my undertaking. Slowly I part one wooden panel from its brother, and that familiar dull light filters through, I look warily through the crack, and then for the thousandth time I restore the door back to its original position taking one step backwards and believing that I am better man for doing so, my eye then thunders back to reality, to sit shaking surrounded in this black chair, and whole again I whimper like the frightened child of my dreams

I'm a long time reader of H.P. Lovecraft, and this reminds me of him, in a very good way. Thank you again, excellent stuff!

Excellent work full of feeling, introspection, and the bond of man, pipe, and the primal stream of life. I really like it and will copy it into my Tobacco Journal! Please share others you feel comfortable letting the Brothers enjoy!

Look at me! A Libertine! A lover of open air! Countenance rife with merriment, alive without a care! My joy it seems so boundless and my heart it feels so light, morsels must be savoured slowly, when passing in the night. My hat is ported jauntily and my tie is worn askew, as if nothing did mean more to me than living lax in lieu.
I pass my minutes merrily just gazing upon a horse and wonder what its road might be, what lies upon its course, I stop beside an inn, an inn I stop beside, I remove my hat with pleasure as I venture on inside and order drinks so heartily that people say ‘hello’ how commodible happiness is, on who’s hearts are set so low, and so I give like charity and feed the frightened poor, before placing my cap back hastily and heading toward the door, for merriment is marred you see by broken darkened dens and the cockerel is only one you see, amongst so many hens.

I love it!
I recently had a great weekend with friends I rarely see, and it felt great to be with lively folk. Music, food, friends and drink, and this brings it all back, thank you!

Sorry to hear that you've been ill. I have been sick for about two months now, and it's been one long miserable episode. Getting out of the house for the weekend and playing some music really helped. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Just a rough cold and flu season. I shouldn't complain though, at least it's warm here. I've been through one English winter (years ago) and I don't think I'd fare too well...
Thanks for the good cheer, I really appreciate it!

Hmm this on's a little darker....


You say you love me still…but your lips they hide a lie, for there's a trembling in my heart that no false words can belie.
I stand here legs quivering, almost on bended knee, my body ready for breaking, no belief can set it free. I feel that sense of choking, as breath tightens in my chest, that if my heart gives up in hoping, there is no life left for the rest
I beg you now, I mean it, do not let this truth turn real! but ever hide it in your mind, place it under guarded seal, and I'll just keep pretending, just like the happy fool, blinded to what the truth is, for verity’s what’s cruel.
You feel so sorry for me, you’re so sorry it can’t be me, all these words I read as your lips speak as they move untruthfully. You sensed my love and took it, though I was still unsure, and now you look upon me like a child you can't ignore, a loathsome little creature with no light left in its life, it would be more merciful wouldn’t it to brandish symbolic knife.
I've picked up your taste for loathing and I’ve clutched it to my breast, for if you hate me truly I'll come in a second-best ,but I'm lying now you see it, as I do sink on bended knee, I beg you please, I beg you, don't ever set me free
