Lucky Mirror By C.

Dawn’s Recital

Dawn’s Recital C. Derick Miller 5.26.21 Unbridled Nudity Cheats of the flesh Surefire attention Shape disregarded Dawn’s recital Senseless display Abundant entertainment For the weak among us all No shortcut needed Sight’s hunger awakened Mirror’s delight Slowly she covers Eyes closed by perfection Unraveled inches Women’s true definition I wake to watch her dress


Reminisce C Derick Miller 5.25.21 The dotted line is occupied The letter's in the mail Requesting stings from yesterday Those photographs from Hell Recorded pain and memories I wished would go away But keys to moving forward Have revealed they're here to stay There's no reason to go back there There's no reason to go...

Wink By C. Derick Miller 5/20/21 Journey’s end That relieving deep breath before death’s release The ease of farewell You know not where I dwell Is it indeed journey’s end Or chaotic regrouping for what comes next?

Grow Up And Die

Grow Up And Die By C. Derick Miller 5.18.21 Deep breaths to cry The reason why?

Five Feet Away – For Sam

I feel your eyes upon me Slightly turned, I catch your smile Wishing no one else could see us No more living in denial Could they ever understand it? Or accept it once they did? Can they tell how you’ve regressed me? To a nervous, helpless kid? How I sense your soul from distance? How... Continue Reading →

Week 3

Winter fire, melted dreams, stir in sleep, silent screams, born again, morning rise, face the day, child's cries, talk the talk, promise dared, reach the end, darkness scared, back to wall, daring heart, take me back, to the start.


One more morning Sun breaks through The darkened veil To shine on you The comfort comes I pour the life From heaven’s bowl My daybreak wife The knife I wield The fork I stab Still hot on plate From burning slab I’d marry you My waffle dear But laws prevent Or so I hear…


No one will miss Your presence here You have no home Nothing to fear Just come inside And breathe your last My gentle smile and shotgun blast The blood-stained walls A story paints The final page My victim faints But springs alive When knife blades slice To feel his fear My only vice The screams...

The teasing claw holds Heaven's cup Trapped at the bottom looking up I crave a drop of someone else's soul To give up now would be absurd This birthright curse of spoken word I can't escape the prison of this hole I pray to someone everyday To take my hand or light my way Yet,...

Serial Prize

A spot of oil To future failed Societies But for the moment You and me I felt the need You fit... Continue Reading →


The pipes are clogged The wheels are stuck No reason why I’d give a fuck To start again Stare down defeat It’s not been fun It’s not been neat This writer’s life Of cat and mouse I spit the words Throughout the house And echoed rhyme On deaf ears fall I took the chance And... Continue Reading →


Torn down Broke apart Put together Army art Built to kill Built to last Eyes front No more past Coming home Will they see? The animal Inside of me?

I died inside The day departed By my own hand Left broken hearted Where did I turn What did I do Erased by fate Without a clue You crossed the line You tempted bond Red handed caught Emotions fond I witnessed hate My life erased My pathway dim My footsteps traced I lost my way...

Politics and Shoes

The only things that never change Are politics and shoes The revelation guaranteed To feed the poor man’s blues Our wealthy high society Their young instilled with hate No toys, no games, or treehouse dreams Deter their destined fate Legendary surnames Bound for Washington’s embrace Suck dollars from our pockets While the hoods disguise their...

The darkness grips Like angry fangs Injecting poison's sting Though sirens wail Your heart will fail You won't recall a thing The pain shall cease With soul's release Removing you from life What's left behind You'll never find As Hell becomes your wife "I should've" this "I could've" that It's much too late to change...
