Who is….?


Who is….?
James WF Roberts 

Who is the dreamer? 
Who is the sinner?

Who is the cursed?
Who is the lame?

Where is a Hero?
Where is a Villain?
Where is God?
Where is the spirit
Where am I? 

Where is the Light?
Where is the echo of hope now…
feel the burn of white hot kiss
engorging myself in that blissful kiss
to be a fire-fly, dancing, 
swimming in the embers of night

is mortality a Caterpillar’s temporary tomb?
Is eternal silence a butterfly
meandering up and over the anthill of mediocrity
I stand as one with nothing, everything, nothing at all

just another footnote in the long, long line of failure
I swear i’m cut from
what can an angel see in a lost-cause, 
the Jude of my time
perfection talent, technique all lost 
on the likes of the great idiot of today
how long will it last?
How long will she stay?
How long can anything keep going?

Is love blind or just naive?
Am I destined to repeat…repeat..
repeat all of this over and over again…

in the end who is the winner
who is the fool?
Will I come back around again
to suffer the slings and arrows of 
even more obscurity
absurdity
inferiority 
just another way of saying my name

About jameswfrobertsdapoet

Emerging Poet and Writer. From Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. I present a show called Crazy Talk/Word Berserk, on www.phoenixfm.org.because I believe in what Phoenix has to offer. No where else will you get the diversity of Gospel, Country music shows, Koori themed shows and Poetry and Experimental music? My father, Bryan did a show on 3CCC in the 1980’s called the Keyboard Hour for a bout 8 years, until he died. That is partly why I joined Phoenix but mainly it’s because of the diversity we offer people and also I really do feel that we are an important vehicle, an important voice for the Community at Large. My interests are Poetry, Literature, Music, Movies, Cultural Awareness and Philosophical pursuits. My show is basically a Late Night Radio Show for Artists, Poets, Musicians and Creative Thinkers of all types to come and inform, enjoy, entertain and inspire each other. So join me and my guests from the local Artistic Community to be inspired, to be entertained and informed
