Quest of...Part 1
Quest of the Mystic Knight Part I : Darkness Abounds
Dark demons conjured from their dank tomb
Spreading evil - at the Order of Satan's wish for gloom
Across meadows flowering this wave of fire goes breathing
Scorching everything beautiful – everything living.
Lightlessness creeps over a land left barren
Obstructing even the brilliance of heaven
However a fair maiden wanders aimlessly
Over the desolate landscape vigilantly.
Amidst the ruin she finds a single lily flourishing
Glowing brilliant still amongst the decaying
A sign of life still untouched by the devastation
A sign of beauty purity hope and salvation.
From ashes of Lucifer also rises in beauty
A new Hero – A New Glory to battle this Evil Entity
The danger lies not within His also rising Wisps
It lies within ourselves, are we willing to help what He risks?

with regrets in shades of grey.
Repressed anger and frayed emotion
with promises broken, for reasons only seen
through rose-coloured glasses,
on the faces of nameless people.
Days in monotone, clouded with desire and
the hope of disquise, given by the marionette
with no strings.
Screaming the answers we need to hear, but
still the lonliness is felt, in a room filled with
bodies with no souls.
The acrid smell of desperation is so potent, as
to take away our breath, and leave us gasping
for the very air we breathe.
Saturated in the belief that torment is all encompassing,
and our free will is locked in a Pandora's box,
struggling with ego and self pity.
Too much to deal with, and set aside in rows
of matchbox cars, and only played with when
Life is as sudden as a tempest on the horizon,
or as drawn out as a mindgame of chess, with
too many pieces in all the wrong places.
Suddenly, is what I feel and suddenly, is
To RememberMy breath, is caught, within a sighTo Remember5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Remembering moments of days gone by
My Lovers found and passion spent
Of no regrets and friendships meant
Our souls entwined for evermore
The rhyme and reason, my heart to store
I see myself so fancy-free
Each day was filled with what was me
A woman in a world of hope
Of seeds to sow and ways to cope
With promise and the need to know
Adventures fresh with eyes aglow
I see, I saw, my eyes I close
my precious moments, in time I froze
I hear, I heard, now silence reigns
Of sounds and words, the fear that feigns
the truest part of who I am
Of caring more, to give a damn
I have spiralled headlong within the mist
No consequence in love's first kiss
To feel complete and find my place
Amongst the twisted in this space
Oh please I pray, please grant me more
Of whats behind life's hidden door
Each day my body succumbs to age
As true as writings on this page
My heart and soul remain the same
My mind i
In the darkIt was the complete and utter silence that I noticed first.In the dark5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
So quiet that it was unnerving to the point of the hairs standing up on the nape of my neck.
It is impossible to be this quiet.
There has to be a sound of some kind.
The wind in the trees.
Insects at their nightly rituals.
But there was nothing.
It was making me uneasy to the point that I hadn't realized I had been holding my breath.
Then came the darkness.
So encompassing that it overwhelmed my senses.
I was blind in the dark.
Deaf in the silence that my sense of smell was going into overdrive.
There was a scent, but it was impossible to recall where I had smelt it before.
It was not an aromatic scent but more of a instinctly pungent odour that had me wrinkling my nose.
Hard to describe.
It was actually similar to rotting garbage but sweeter and warmer.
Sounds weird I know but in this icy cold darkness the smell made me feel warm.
Putting one foot in front of the other I started to take small, steal
IndecisionA soul I am, thats lost my wayIndecision5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Midst the confusion of today
No purpose or zest left in my step
Leaving me shallow, and bereft
The promise in today has come and gone
Taking the tune from within my song
Dark Shadows cast upon the ground
Silently, yes, without a sound
"But" I say "This cannot be"
For You are You and I am Me
And with this life I have to make
For much is here that is at stake
I sigh and think "Where do I start?"
I place my hand upon my heart
Please open up and let me free
Let me see the joy, there is to see
I could not glance in front of me
What should be clear, was perplexity
I have to free my inner self
To find whats pure and full of wealth
Of what this life can help me strive
To help me breathe and be alive
Dont judge me for my insecurities
For all of us have these tendencies
Tis truely a gift to master those
Of which do cause our heart to close
So smile I will and dream again
Of Summer days and Winter's rain
SilenceThis silence is ever mocking meSilence5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Giving me nowhere to run and hide
The reasons for this solitude
Are reasons why you lied
Jagged edges of dreams, gone in a foray of cruel words
lost between the pages of torn letters and the stories
Fingers trailed bloodied lines through the matted hair
of restless nights and the nightmares of secluded lust,
alone and abused with only the shallow recesses of days
This silence is ever mocking me
Screaming out my name
But fools are we to have believed
That love was not a game
You saw in me my fraility, shredding my innocence till
my heart lay unprotected in a pool of confusion and
the beating stifled in a sigh
I am dead but for the pulse that races but cannot call my name,
no more to see or speak or feel within this shell that slips over
the bones encasing a sullen soul fighting to breathe
This silence is ever mocking me
Giving creedence to all the pain
No longer will my love shed tears

A lover's DanceA lover's Dance5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Oh my love let this dance begin
Of feelings sought and the warmth within
To start what we most surely feel
Our love and lust will yet reveal
Two souls alone but yet as one
A sensous tryst as yet undone
See me please as I do live
A gentle soul with much to give
My Passions raw and senses sweet
Dreaming whence our love will meet
Heat and friction to the flame
Will ignite our temptous game
A gentle touch on skin so raw
Of beauty found and seasons flaw
Can not be found within our eyes
Spread beneath the bluest skies
Oh passion please ignite us still
To sate our love and get our fill
Your skin so soft and warm to touch
Of tangled limbs and our feelings rush
As two bodies are entwined as one
To bask beneath the warmest sun
Sated in love as well as lust
Filled with want and bathed in trust
Our journey together will unfold
Of smiles and laughter and tales untold
The two of us have beauty found
As soft and pure as hearts do sound
So leave me not to go again

left warbling on my desk
where the glass
went sick with longing -
how do we start over?
your note said it all
when you put down the pen
and I could feel the air
forget your name,
coals in the grate
hissing their warning
like a dirge.
i was born too late
and the robins bare mourning
on their breasts
your feet always knew
the way home,
fighting their instincts,
with the purge
of simple lies
crushed under them
like the lost gift
His Return To KimberlingHe walks a dirt roadHis Return To Kimberling3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
The autumn breeze blows
As leaves fall and cascade gently
With the colors of the season
Bring a remembrance of days many seasons ago
When he last walked this road
A stranger wandering the hills far from home
A smile comes over his face at the memory of that day
He has longed to return
To see the lass of Kimberling again
To enjoy her company and her hospitality.
He rounds a bend and there he sees
A log home and there upon the porch she sits
As if waiting his return.
He nears to see that glimmer in her eyes
That smile of recognition and welcoming.
He sits down next to his friend
Embraces her and she rest her head on his shoulder.
They sit there in silence watching the sunset.
As stars begin to fill the night sky
He notices she's fallen to sleep
Nestled so peaceful upon his shoulder
A picture of quiet comfort on her face
Gently he picks her up
And moves her to her bed.
Quietly he places her beneath the covers
Bends, kisses her cheek and whispers

AS WE DANCED
A moment frozen in time
As the warmth flowed through me.
Locked within your arms,
All the world eclipsed.
As we danced,
Every sensation an expression of love.
An eternity slipped away
As our dreams melded into one.
Suspended within each others arms,
Moving to the rhythm of our heartbeat.
As we danced,

"Passion - it lives, it breathes, it exists within us,
To inspire us, to invoke us, to entice us to find adventure in all life."
"It is the fire that burns within our blood,
It is the little voice in our mind we hear,
That urges us, that taunts us, that seduces us to go beyond even our fears."
"Passion - it is the reason."
"It is the reason that the sun seeks out the horizon with such intensity,
To burn it, with its kiss of rays complete
Filling then all of life with its passionate heat."

Hope EternalI am in a moment of my lifeHope Eternal5 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
Feeling indecision and causing strife
Not knowing when or where to turn
all my thoughts begin to churn
Of my wrongs and all the rights
In useless days and sleepless nights
A tortured soul with angst to shed
Mixed emotions fill my head
I cannot grasp where I belong
In moments short or much too long
I need some strength to find a cure
To rid this blackness to make me pure
The beauty is there but I see it not
A page in time is not forgot
All rests within my heart that beats
Simple days of torturous feats
I step ahead but cannot move
Struck with fear in this endless groove
A hand I need to grasp in mine
with eyes of love that help to shine
A light within this darkest day
Enables me a better way
This poem, I know, sounds very sad
Cry not for me of moments had
For I am blessed in every way
And in this world I want to stay
Tis just that blackness creeps within
And turns my good into a sin
Of thinking less instead of more
Eating deep within my core
I fight and stand

that legendary beast -
your dark against my light
among these shadows
on the wall.
Let me soothe that livid pucker
from your doubting skin
and rend the jealous knit
of your jerkin
like a slow weave against my breasts.
Let me sweeten the wine -
honey singing in the gourd,
drowning his false words
in a stupor,
just a viper lost at duskling
that my lips can ease
into an afterthought.
this handkerchief is pure,
chaste as the light
that beats upon our names,
threatening this house;
and the envy of lesser men
weighs upon me here
like war drugged children
left dreaming in your fingers.

like paint peeling off porch railings
buttercups go drowsy in window boxes
watching the world nod and doze
and the burr of cicada wings

We reap the benefits they may cast
To learn to shine and shed our fear
Our hearts no longer bleed a tear
Come dance with me and laugh and play
Our souls entwined to find a way
Life is ours to share and live
To love another as well as give

To share the goodness in every day

A simple being who gives a damn
I speak but what my heart does feel
Each word is true and very real
So every day a blessing be

A Lover's Touch.......A scent, a smell, perfumes so sweetA Lover's Touch.......5 years ago in Spoken Word More Like This
A touch, a taste, when lips will meet
A sound, a song, a tune to sing
Such beauty will our senses bring
The mind accepts where the heart will lead
And follows once we plant the seed
Of love and trust and patience made
To build upon the plans being laid
An innocence nurtured so fresh and new
As pure and eager as morning dew
To greet with joy the rising sun
The birth of life has just begun
A word, a smile, a sound we make
The touch of souls of which we take
A moment in time for memories seen
Of who we are to where we've been
In life and love we'll journey much
To learn the essence of truth and touch
To bring together what we thought could not
be the binding of the who and what
Join two and one with hands we hold
To give us warmth where once was cold
Of hope and hapstance and needs to free
the chains of loneliness no longer be
Tis simple if we allow it so
The beauty of life for all to know
To open up and

Inhaling this scene of pure serenity
Such beauty in this moment found
The music, to my ears, this sound
Of crashing waves and mystery deep
With struggles it intends to keep
I sigh when thinking of the souls
lost within the deep blue folds
That something tangible and yet so raw
Can leave you wanting so much more
I tremble as I smell the salt
Mixed with pain and no-ones fault
I look for miles and all I find
Is promise that was meant to bind
Amidst confusion and love's sweet hurt
These grains of sand that turn to dirt
Within my hands it seeps to dust
The sadness torn in loss of trust
She is my sea and I will confide
My secrets bitter and angst I hide
Who listens to my torturous words
On gentle breezes once were heard
Her arms of water take me silently
Let me slip within her generousity
My heart is lighter with each step
These memories be forever kept
Within the blue of her embrace
I slip forgotten, without a trace

for night to crawl away.

with a heat
coiled to maim

too torn for tears;

where smiles should be,
are the only witness
