    In the darkness does he hide
    In the open is the sullen death
    Eating all of us inside, deceiver with his truth
    What weapons do we seek
    To pierce a hidden hide the tiger with no stripes
    A damage to his pride
    Taking of his breath
    The old man falls to youth
    Veins in open leak
    Give him back the hate he likes

    I was a child, we all were
    Small of size but not of mind
    A bit wild at times demure
    A better infant hard to find
    The time has made me
    Experience grown
    The old man you see
    My lifetime shown
    Yet some they stagnate
    Life stuck in when
    A fantasy date
    Herewegoagain.

    Do we fear, do we hide
    Is reality of this life so intense
    Do we hate whats inside
    Do we swagger in our pride
    Living a pretense
    Not noting the mother who cried
    We scream the thoughts and prayers
    Knowing no one hears
    Hiding under chairs
    This anger comes in layers

    Explore and seek as we do
    Wander and wonder at crimson sky
    If I breath my last breath
    An Alien death, my wish be fulfilled
    The dreams of my fathers true
    What they sought a reason to die
    Here do I give reason to death
    The dying breath is chilled
    This God of War takes my sacrifice with glee

    Sweet and salty my taste buds lick
    Moist drips my tongue with taste
    A Tulip of treating desert my meal
    The appetizer savored he trick
    My chef in apron of lace
    Delighting the salivating face
    So cunning she squirms, delight
    Day and night
    So tight
    This dinner is perfectly right.

    'Tecoyahtry.' Nice. Looks like I'm the first to respond! I'm unable to contribute any 'Christry' though.

    I've always lacked creativity.

    This was written after reading posts claiming to know God because of their soul.

    These Godly pieces that float in my mind
    Speckles in my eyes after a rush
    Meaning is what I define, what I find
    What is real often hides, it seldom resides
    on tongue tip or burning bush
    So nice to be blind, to never be forced to see
    The hardships given to me, humanity
    Lightning explained

    In that question do we find the purpose of Tecoyahtry and every other poem ever written....it is meant to make us think about what it means to US. You get to define the meaning and what it meant to me is less important.

    What do I say, or what did i
    Am I to pay or should I die
    Did I misstep, a bad trip
    I just don't get where I slipped
    This hour will pass
    Claws withdrawn but wet
    I lick the wounds hoping you will regret

    First of all, I really like your work. Please keep sharing.
    The hardest part of poetry--being able to express ideas while leaving room for the individual. I like "snapshots" or images of something I've seen that can have simple meanings on one hand and yet have room for complexity on the other.

    I like to get out and walk early in the mornings, and I have poems and photos of this road I walk. It's fun and I don't take it seriously. Here's one I wrote with beat I found for it.

    Morning Sunlight, To a Groove in G

    If you want to say something profound,
    Make people nod, pass your book around,
    Hear them “hmmm” like Buddhist monks
    Pondering some great insight,
    A light the poets missed,
    A thread unweaving itself in the mind,
    You should start early in the day,
    While the leaves on a sapling have their way
    With a stray shaft of morning sun
    That slipped under the canopy
    Silently

    Memories of a Maple Tree in October

    Low cut straw in a rolling field
    dotted with bales of hay
    blue silent morning air
    graced by the long shadows
    of an old broken maple tree
    slowly losing its rusty leaves
    like memories of a time
    when its full shadow fell on a small farmhouse
    that it has outlived

    Crispy white the screen
    Soon to be plastered
    Words and thought mastered
    Imagination seen in digital prose
    Creating the beauty of a rose
    I can smell it already
