Chris G. Vaillancourt Poems
A Boy And The Dragons
Shhh. Tell no-one. The dragons are sleeping like baby lizards in their caves. Breathless from a day of pillage. Restful after a time of destruction.
Chains Of Freedom
Where am I going? Isn't this the question that filters into most of our minds? I have spent my life questioning the borders erected around me.
And I Drift
I have scratched the loneliness that never knows its path Bright as black I flowed into its waters
Come To Me Fickle Words
Come to me fickle words. Lift the weight from my mind.
A Certain Surrender
In my understanding of this hemisphere, I sense a certain discontentment.
Naked In The Snow

Sometimes sunshine streams through the windows, like a tossled head of hair. Bright and solid light
A Smattering Of Applause
Sheltered dreams always seem to end. They filter down like drops of hopeless water which fall from the sky

a too dark world
through the dingy corridors
of cigarette stained minds.
Heated balloons of ambition
have been instructed
to ignore the state of soul.
Focus instead on ambition
and loss of self-control.
