Hi, My name is Micah Park Biffle, I am the author of ' A Man's Traveled Heart,' I am a Veteran who found his way back through writing. I consider myself an architect of the imagination. Here you will see my creations come to life. My short stories, poems, my thoughts, and a little touch of my life.
This earth is no placed to be fixed, no place to be at a single
point. Ah, the wonders that lie ahead. A nomad must a heart be. To truly
embrace the eclectic sanctuary that is the ever expanding universe. Spinning us
around and around a hundreds of times a year. Creating a connection to
something that could boil us an instant if we drew too close. Frightful is this
and if caught in a sudden stop, we would fling from the comfort of our grounds
and we would burn like the stars.
This danger excites the heart.
It pierces the simplicity of boredom when one finds the utmost danger in the
utmost simplistic scenarios. And from those minut thoughts of tickling fear of
adrenaline, blossoms knew growth for adventure. Seeking the ends of each cliff,
only to leap and find yourself soaring among the clouds.
For today, breath could be
taken away. A poison could scatter among the air, snuffing out the beauty that
is nature. Consummating death to all, cutting burdens of many spoiled hearts of
their easy issues. No more would you hear frustration over the forgotten items
at the store. No more would the echoes of pity spill into the delicate ears of
the soul. No more would tunneled eyes of anger find home among broken
Silence would lay upon the
earth as does a feather upon a bird. Fluttering to the whims of what it cannot
control, but being a part of something so bold. But that is not what is, at
least not in the present of what is now. For now, I spring my heart to the
outlandish, to the unknown. I frolic in the winters for something hidden,
something spectacular beneath all the frost.
Finding grace in even the most
dead and dull blades of grass. The overwhelming sense of comfort as I can walk
back to the confines of my home and feel cold no more. What blessings we have
created with such magnificent minds.
The ever-tantalizing voyage of
thought never even caresses the end of it all. Incomprehensible is the thought
of the end. Even in the sudden death of a loved one, many act still as if time
swoons them with lemniscate of life. Leading them to loiter in the agony and
bleed their soul to what is gone. Bringing resentment to self, to life. Drawing
dark eyes into their now empty home. Preying among the soft whispers that tell
them to move on.
much have we created, and I wish to taste it all. To become fervor in the ideas
of the simple, to allow myself to build the most complex thoughts. Designing
beyond reality, at least what cannot be reality of today. What sadness finds me
when lips form apathy in the daily.
habits that go no further than what was yesterday. Cold does a soul become of
such acts, madness will
find the mind. And not the madness that transcends one to
the mountains of the heavens. But madness that leads one to become the idle hands of the devil.
Lacerating the heart of even a page of hope. Brewing up sores that cause pain
even in the waking of the eyes.
earth is no excuse to be dissatisfied, for many even in the most ill of life's.
Find more excitement, than a
man upon a golden crown.
Thank you for reading, want more inspiring and soul riding words like this?
Here, in front of me stands a mirror. Its gleams with pristine cleanliness as I drag my eyes faithfully along its edges. Wondering, what purpose does it truly have, is this but another view of what I am?
Searching Is Not The Answer
I retract my eyes from its edges allowing sullied breath to sink into my lungs. I release this breath with an odd sense of curiosity as breath settles upon the mirror. Now, with breath upon this mirror, I watch, as it fades almost instantly. As if disdained upon my presence. Only to leave in an almost translucent outline upon the glass.
And again, my thoughts wander upon the condensation of my breath. And in watching it fade, I ponder, with intellectual eagerness , am I but not a breath from the universe, from God? Slowly fading upon the reaction of molecules and the designers final stroke of the brush.
Am I not but a reflection of what another has drawn, for what naturalism can create such perfection mixed with such disaster? Playing upon the good and bad…
The Scar of War And His Suicide To Escape It
He returned with a heavy heart. With a fierce storm raging in rain, thunder, and dark clouds. Memories of war collided beneath his chest. His lost brothers he could feel in the very bones of his soul. Nothing felt the same in this place he called home.
No words could describe the surmountable anguish that tore each second at his mind, creating a vast chasm. Loneliness slowly consumed him. Leaving him branded as a mental case, coming unhinged to reality. Drowning in the constant flavor of hops. Leaving no moment to be sober. Covering the storm with another, that if the fog became to thick to see, then his pain did not exist.
Flooded with anxiety of what he left behind in the chaos of war. He could not escape the nagging of all the thoughts he prayed to forget. Tarnished he felt, guilty, burdened, he felt far from a hero. Though each friend, each member of his family embraced him as one.
And on each night of his return, he sat at that foot o…
A Moment In the Middle East
A scorching sun canvasses the grounds. Flesh becomes its victim, sweat pours with no end. As if envious in seeking air. Eyes watchful of the distant, heads on a swivel. Hearts race in anticipation, crowds walk as adrenaline pumps.
The smell of gun powder stifles the nose. Tight grips upon steel, chambered brass. Sands flood the lungs, faces smeared in exhaustion. Thirst grips the throat, thoughts of home fumble the mind. Focus, focus, focus.
Distant shots, a setting sun, strange beauty comes to life. Barren lands seeping in anger, pointless in attempt to save. Lost, young, raged in empty hours of this land. Brothers shoulder to shoulder, but for what?
The eyes become useless as night arises from its chambers. Stars shower the blackened sky, the moon flaunts its elegance. Eerie becomes the view, shadows dancing between street lights and stars. Wind gusts with a warm kiss.
Now hues of green become the view. Skewed in perception but eyes trained in this moment…
