Josh Weiss Poems
Truth, what is truth? And is it aloof? And if it is, where is the proof? Is it something that comes in a revelation, Does it follow some grand divine presentation?
Along the beachside ocean shore, Where winged angels and seraphim soar, Stretching close to that seaward way, As the sunrise begins the day,
Saint Of Sin
On the other side of reason, Beyond the site of fate, Something other than what we want, Lies something all must hate.
Man, from time to time, does what he means not, And so this remains man’s sorrowful lot. He does not always say what he means to express, Sometimes with love, it is anger he does profess.

Washing aground the water ripples wave, Silent in night that mighty darkness brave, Hushing the shore with mother-like love, Endlessly watching the stars high above,
An old shadow has returned from the dark,
A shadow deep with truth, naked and stark.
Man shudders at its return to the light,
Quivering from the darkened yawning might,
As the shadow forms into that of man,
The thing from which before we all had ran
In deep fear of some sorrow to be learned,
A dismal secret into our souls burned.
For with our hands controlling bright flame,
