Patrick Thomas Jeffries


Death losing breath comes with neither goodbye nor wave
Dreaming, One’s eternal narcotic nod Love’s roots are grave
Brave broad storm on; defiant Sol stir it up
Feeling your depth rising resurrected from your coffee cup
Form invisible too real to touch now G-d permeate
Ghostly kiss from your lust bruised lips Passion’s taste
DNA twisting; like crossing stars that portended our Fate
Old wars insults suspended upended washing away blood stains
Wise wailings remorseful tears now joyful; come cleansing rains
Fire-sparked in the dark igniting Nietzsche’s (I); nine lives—

  1. Rather stream-of-consciousness, almost "language poetry", yet somehow effective in its dark mood.
