Which lays beating still on the tip of your mind.
Do the hairs of that bow threaten to snap?
Are they waiting for their chance?
Their pure existenceódoes it yearn to be tainted around my neck instead of trapped along the straight line of their life?
Sustained by the bow, they are, but as individual thoughts
That, knowing a snap means their demise, care little if it yet means mine.

Walking to get water from the stream
She tiptoed in the dark
Afraid to be seen
She gripped the bucket tighter
And continued on her way
She never thought that she would be risking her life to get water one day
Dead bodies were around her
She shivered in fear
These were parents, brothers and daughters
How will their families react when they hear?
Now they lie on the ground
Everybody unable to help
For if they try
They too will have to say goodbye
To people they love
The whole town is dark
For electricity is banned
These innocent people are not the ones in command
People are living on the streets
Kicked out of their house
With no power to object
Children are starving
There is nothing to eat
The houses are cold
There is no heat
Resources so common
Are now gone
Life or death is what life was now on
Walking down her childhood street
She cried silently
Remembering the times they went to the store
Joking and laughing
Something they don‚do anymore
Walking to the store now

like poison frogs,
words that creep
words as colourful

A hero's last challenge after all daring deeds are done
The dragons lay slain, evil enchantresses vanquished
Lain upon ornate stone
Royal lips frozen in timeless magic
Pause, young hero, and gaze at last on your quarry
A scene unfolds like storybook fantasy
Golden light cast on a fated pair
The hero bends with a pure kiss for sleeping lips
And the princess awakens the beautiful prince.
Suicide ForestSuicide Forest10 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Every night you take my dreams and mortal soul
Beyond the hill and past the knoll.
Perched up high and looking below
A valley familiar, this place I know.
Now walk the dark path, walk in the trees
The suicide forest, take me there please.
The towering oak:
A once mortal man
Reduced to a shadow
so past him I ran.
By the pond, full of tears
The twins are crying
They are the willow, weak and alone.
Their life of pain is echoed, echoed in moans.
This is the legacy of those who died by their hand.
Now darkness falls across the land.
I will not leave until I find the one.
The cherry tree under eternal sun.
For even in death I hear the song
And touch the heart I've missed for so long.
I see you now. Fully in bloom.
Enshrined forever in a flowery tomb.
I bring you news from the other side.
Another life taken, another one died...
The forest grows again tonight.
I bring them now into the light.
Please take their souls ,such precious seeds
Plant them here, fulfill their needs.
