as now the sands of destiny scatter to the wind
my hope is that they settle in your favor
for I have never known someone who held such love within
nor ever fought a foe whose heart was braver

so, take from me this tattered leather jacket off my back
in bitter cold it is for you to wear
and let me drive you in my rhinestone Cadillac
to paradise, where laughter fills the air

somewhere in the silence lies the truth I hope to find
like dead roses frozen ‘neath the snow
these memories forever will be etched upon my mind
of friends I’ve made and lovers that I’ve known

raindrops glow like diamonds on my windshield today
a pastel rainbow shimmers in the sky
the headlights of my rhinestone Cadillac shine ever bright
through wisps of fog, to where souls never die


About digthroughlife

I am a fifty-three year old poet who also writes fiction. I worked twenty-three years for the USPS, though never enthusiastically. I am a member of French Writers Worldwide and have had several poems published in French and Spanish. I hold strong opinions on music, film, and human rights. Some of my influences are Charles Bukowski, Arthur Rimbaud, Dylan Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, Sylvia Plath, W.B Yeats, Bob Marley, William Blake, and Hunter S. Thompson. I'm an avid fan of the New York Yankees, Oakland Raiders, and Indiana Pacers. I like traveling by car. I enjoy seeing rock and alt-country bands in small venues. I hold a black belt in Taekwondo, but no longer spar due to injuries incurred in a motorcycle accident in 2005. I play acoustic guitar. I love Crown Royal whiskey and California Kush. Women are both the bane of my existence and all that sustains me. I believe strongly in the power of love and heartbreak. View all posts by digthroughlife
