An Old Nemesis

An old nemesis

Fighting against me since youth

Comes again to call,

Trying to snuff my life out

As it’s always wanted to.

Thus far it has lost,

But I am a realist,

One day I will lose

And will have to pay the price…

Until then I choose to live!

Shadowy Creatures

Shadowy creatures

Thrive in absolute darkness,

What is it they seek?

Are they feasting on my fears

Or do they desire blood?

 

Real or imagined

They torture me just the same.

This…my illusion

Has become reality,

Whether I like it or not.

 

The mind truly can

Be such a terrible thing…

Mind Fading Away

Mind fading away

Ravaged by illness and age

Fate of so many

Such a sad state of affairs

Watching those we love forget

Feeling so helpless

We’ve become total strangers

Passing in the night

Frustration steeped in sadness

Becomes our permanent state


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

See Armageddon

See armageddon–

Hiding behind bombs and guns,

Deadly viruses,

Indiscriminate killing,

Murder and mayhem abound!

Worst of man exposed;

What goes around comes around

As the saying goes.

Perhaps we’ve come full circle

To pay for indiscretions.

No nation is safe.

Technology has assured

We are one world.

Hide amongst your ignorance,

But know–it cannot protect.

Looking Down From The Mountain

Looking down from the mountain

The lush valley below obscured,

Embraced by a sheet of ecru.

Stepping out for a breath of fresh air is a farce.

From below virtually unnoticeable,

Looking up all you can see is blue,

But the lungs know,

The eyes know,

The putrid smell gives it away.

How much more vivid would the sky be;

How much sweeter would the air be

Were it not for this festering cloud.

We are poisoned in the name of progress,

Bleeding the life blood from ourselves and our children.

So to leave the material as our legacy,

All the while destroying what is truly important

…Our planet.
