Through the glass darkly I see Eyes that shine, glinting in glee A face, stony, staring back at me Thoughts of a demon, epiphany It watches with lips turned in a smile Ideas send me wild in denial The reflection is ugly, full of Death Horrid to visualise, steals my breath   Cold-blooded its mind,...

Close Never closer The distance never greater Further apart than ever Reaching out leaves me cold Wondering why I try at all There's no one there A dead connection that rings With lost hopes Turn off the thoughts Shut off the Light Sit in the dark Stop wondering, move on There's nothing there No one...

Come Dear Ones A Story to touch you Settle for a spell   She found it today A heart shaped box Deep in the darkest corner Of the basement It was faded and dusty Once a vibrant red Now a damaged and muted pink It rattled in her hands A cringe of fear after so... Continue Reading →

Why say I love you. It’s so mundane Words are meant to move You, in all ways I hand you my heart Broken and glued Scarred with life’s travels Incomplete, until I found you Why say I’m sad It sounds as an untruth Sadness is profound Not so plain I am filled with the screams... Continue Reading →

When Love falls before you Heart bloodied and embattled Hands held up in supplication Wings once glorious Tattered and torn Would you gather it to your breast Envelop and immerse it Gently caressing it's soul With words soft as a kiss Would you whisper "stay" Should it struggle to leave Out of injurious fear If...

I’m always here you know Even in the day Nestled in the darkness beneath Where you slumber... Continue Reading →

See the Deaths Head Moths Take flight, take wing To settle upon every Shadow Every small light Each meager illumination Feeding the blackness Touching each Darkness Their wings flutter the dust Of spoiled dreams Of daydreams and desires Of love, of rage It boils the blood Begins the beguin A kiss that cleaves Love that...

Just Let It Go

There’s a storm on the horizon Mountainous clouds The harbringer of cataclysm As the night closes in I say let it rage Let it scream and blow I’m not afraid I’ll stand outside naked Shrieking its name Raise my fists Dare it to fight When its too much Just let it go Forget the rest...
