Follow TASTE THE WRITING of br on
-Photo art by: Jakub Dziubak-



There in that sacred space

Where dreams lay crumbled

From all the yesterdays –


There where songs are sung

And stale memories play on

The soft notes of piano keys –


There in the unfulfilled dream

Heaps of all tomorrows amid

The rearranged bar stools –


There in the Bacchus mist

Among the sad souls of night

Love comes briefly to delight –


There in that play parlor for

Lonely souls of poetic pawns

The tortured Romantic sits.


Thank you, Romantics of the

World for the beauty of your

Musical notes of such sweet pain.

    Ah, yes! Romantics of the world unite–dyslexics of the world untie. (I had to get that in there somewhere.) Your poetry never fails to amaze me, Billy Ray.
