Blog/News

Cam McHarg's official blog.

This blog will cover news and what's going on with me, as well as occasional writing about things that interest me, and that I feel strongly about.

Thanks for checking it out and being a part of it.

 

Playing with the words again.

There was a stretch of years during my 20′s that I would write at least one poem a day - sometimes several. Some were published, but most was garbage, but I was okay with that. It was all for me, and I needed it.

I’m starting to play with it again lately. I’ll share some here once in while, and if you like it, scroll down to find more in my older posts and stay in touch here for more later.

Swirling Away

Circles
walking
pacing
heart running 
with heat
in my veins
for you.

Lonely
darkness
of shared
fears
and
needs
beyond 
reach
in our minds
while
love 
rests 
closely
right there
in our 
hands.

Burning
through
the mist
of those voids 
in us
that only
we 
see.

Every step 
closer
to that which
we need 
and
believe
we
cannot
have 
beyond dreams
and fleeting
seconds
like smoke 
swirling away
like it never
was.

Hunger

In love
I am
alive
and 
useless
wanting
all of that 
which
you
fear
to give.

Now

Locked in
your cell
protected
from
nothing.

False dreams;
fear
needlessly
pissing out
the bright sun 
of 
love.

And
for you
just a 
wall
while
the darkness
of
time
looks on
laughing.


Feast

Sex
penetrating
vicious 
dreams
and
fighting
the 
killing 
fear
that defeats
death
with 
savage 
hunger.
I tear 
the 
flesh 
with 
my 
teeth
and 
eat.

Victory

I taste
death
like the 
Earth
sitting
in the 
music
beating 
like 
war drums
and
hearts,
I rage 
into the
sky
as 
the 
storm
takes me
smiling.

The Storm

Running 
away
hard
into 
the end,
the flash
of 
love
known once
holding 
on. 
Flickering
like 
fire 
defying
the
storm.

Sand

Death
lasts
like 
time
without
the sun
before
what is 
now
is all
there 
was
as
we
slip
into 
the
dark.

Where I Live Burning

The wind
blows
and
dies.
Nothing
can
be
held.
The sky
and
I
holding
you
against
the
all
being.
The
only 
eternity
where

live
burning.

Surrender

Everything
and
confusion
hold
me
like the
darkness
before
its
warm 
silence
when 
all was 
known
and
needed 
more
into the
next forever
while
love falls
into the ruins 
of 
fear.
It runs 
the
war 
and the
fire,
the sweet smell
of 
the fight 
and
scorched 
Earth.
Songs
meaning 
nothing 
from the 
outside
in,
denying
numbness
that there 
is 
not 
but 
the flames.
Relinquish
and
fall
safely.

Song

Red
lights
spinning
like
an old
jukebox
sounds
fading
into
old wood
memories
of loneliness
and
I am
locked
up 
inside
not
noticing
as
the soul
of the 
next
song 
plays
away
gone.
