Poetry Collection – by Adam Levon Brown

live

I exist in the shadows

of an empty stomach

and broken dreams

I strive for the stars

while sitting amongst

the windswept clouds

I stare in the direction

of the soliloquy sun

while biding my time

I jump at the opportunity

to share a piece of myself

in the bleak December rains

I live for the unexpected

and the train-songs sung

by the unknown poet.

 

Gifts of Burden

I carry around my misery

like a bag of presents

I present them to everyone

I meet along the arduous journey

Suffering for you, self-pity for them

and a bit of darkness to top it all off

By giving these gifts away, I am

freed to experience positive emotions

By giving these gifts away, I can

relate to you in ways that simple

Consumerism fails to do.

I will walk the lonely road

and settle in silence when

the day is over and done.

 

Architect of Dreams

The madness washes

over me like waves of relief

I can feel my mind

begin to warp

into the multi-headed

hydra

I push open the door

and reveal my true being

That of both a saint and

a sinner, hellbent to

callous the inner

markings of my heart

I drop the multitudes

of philosophical

progeny which

have been created

I run naked

through the realms

of paradoxical dreams

 

Matrimony of Thoughts

Ricocheting off my brain

like cedar doors on a hot, humid day

Your voice cannot penetrate

the inner workings of peripheral

nightshade

Moody malignancy

performs the ensemble

in fast forward renaissance

fashion

Split the atom and

now we end
