Crafted: Neither Bitter Nor Bold

In her hands and far from the eyes of mere mortal men  She crafts a friend  To begin again  Eyes of Jasper to see what the soul hides Ears of elm to listen to the wind  Lips of Sapphire, harsh words do not fade fast  A heart of silver, neither pure nor bitter  Legs of…

Only Silence

I wish to drift away  To float in the uncertainty of my state                          Yet there is only silence

Between The Cracks Of My Mask

My mask, just like the others Has cracks in the cheekbones and odd places Just below the temple And across the brow You might wander Up and down a hall In and out of rooms long forgotten Before you notice these cracks They take a moment or two To see that not all masks are…

These Empty Pages Feel No Pain

I look at empty pages  where the words should be  They gnaw at my being I can not write these feelings down  I can not face them  I am weak Do the strong wither with pages full of words Do they stand and face the wind  Do they scream at their fears I do not…

This Constant Place of Motion

The words pass me by  Zooming into the night  Careless about their flight for freedom  My insides shiver  Rambling words leave my tongue  How did I become so undone? A sudden fear takes over And I am alone again  Then it’s the anger  A rage swells within me  Like a river that has grown too…

Deep Valley, Strong with Delight

The owls do no know you  So look away, they come ever speedily  The stars do not see you  They are blinded by a wish that bears no fruit On valley deep within  Can you be my refuge  Can you hold my sin  Let me cower here In the folds of your embrace  Let my…

I WILL DENY YOUR BEING

I won’t sing you praises Or make mention of your name I will not worship at your feet Won’t make offerings on your altar I will not feed the person you have become I will ignore it Deny your existence Forget who you used to be  This is my journey  My road to explore I…

The Dragon Under The Hill

On the hill, there is a cry  Over the mountains and beyond There is a voice  That beckons me to return Return to slumber  Return to peace Return to moments less important than these To simple days When the world revolves on loving thy enemy In their obscure ways To art that spoke of music…
