Kurt Philip Behm Poems

There's a voice deep inside me,
that still tries to get out

No matter my mission,

"Feeling beyond touch, "
the Sorcerer said…

"Knowledge beyond thought, "

My cupboard’s a mess,
my sink filled with lye

My stables now empty,

A distant scream,
the future cries,
our past to burn

Is truth that important,
or ignorance bliss

Your place on the Ferris Wheel,

Christians flock into their churches,
travelers hit the road

Searching for what's beyond their view

Be careful as you age …
when they try to convince you
that your rough edges need to
come off

Dodging a bullet,
the PET Scan loomed large…
results both good and bad

Growing simpler with
each passing year

The leaves turn

If I don't first have your eyes,
will I ever have your ears

If I don't first have your mind,

The greatest Poem I ever wrote…
the one I just laid down

The one to last a thousand years

Where would we be without language,
still naked around the fire

Trading bones with a grunt or moan,

I live in places
you've never seen

And sleep in nightmares


Where do dreams go
once you've dreamed them

Where do feelings go

Keeping emotion inside
the words go mute

Casting decision aside

Can there be a top
without a bottom

A beginning

My DNA lettered
My bloodstream in verse
My feelings in couplets
My last goes to first

Giving in to the writing
all else went to hell

The bills stayed unpaid

Can men fight without symbols
where victory calls beyond love and hate

Can men die without symbols

The Best Poem Of Kurt Philip Behm

A Voice Deep Inside Me

There's a voice deep inside me,
that still tries to get out

No matter my mission,
it screams and it shouts

Its call is then loudest,
on those darkest of nights

When my mind seeks new refuge,
from this Seraph's delight

I toss and I turn,
but it speaks louder still

As its words start to burn,
from new vision distilled

No barter or denial,
will turn back its call

The Muse is on fire,
—my pen can no longer stall

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March,2015)
