Black met black
upon ending breath
loyal friends spirited
to warrior's breast
Mourning takes flight
in taloned embrace
grieved cries rattling
over ocean waves
reverence bears you
to honor's pyre

swallow back tears
past the mountain
a bitter pill lodged in my throat
acrid taste disintegrating hope
the flavor tasted over and over again
like the heartbeat in the dry, cracked skin at the end of my fingertips
a pain that cannot be hidden
a constant reminder of being too open

What do you really see?
Look deeper still
What do you hope?
Or just to cope?
Do you feel the ripple?
Do you hear the breeze?
Do you fear the sickle?
The falling of the leaves
Time is an illusion
We scatter with the dust
A welcome intrusion
But also a must
The soul is eternal
But we are here and now
Enjoy every kernel
Find your inner truth
It's up to you to see how

Gloom of the Dead
As I rise from the table dead
Crosses tombstones in my head
Seeing from the windows ledge
Rest in piece is what my tombstone said
Cutting & drilling in my remains
Autopsy's finished with nothing to gain
Longing for the final end
Fog of the night is setting in
(GLOOM OF THE DEAD)
Shadows in the deep-slivering maggott bed-rats begin to creep
(GLOOM OF THE DEAD)
Blood drips dry I feel no pain
Im immortal yet quite insaine
As my blood has ran dry
Patiently I wait for you to die
To fill my soul with life agian
I need your blood I need your skin
A masterpiece of my demise
To wear you skin as my disguise

Underneath the dogwood tree
I thought of you:
Your smile that helped
To light the way
During the hard times;
Your belief in that
I could go on
Even when I was failing,
And that hand that held
Mine when I cried
Upon your shoulder.
You'll probably never know
That along the way
I had fallen in love with you...
Sometimes we'll pick up
A picture frame
And cast ourselves into the past;
But now that I look at you
I realize that there is no need
For the painful memories anymore,
So long as I have you
I can look to a future
Of a fulfilling life.
Do not worry,
I know you love the other man,
I can keep these feelings to myself,
For as long as you'll
Say hi once in a while,
I can be happy for now.
I've come to realize that
As long as you're smiling,
It won't matter to me who you love...
10 years later and
The picture frame is gone,
I've long since moved on;
But now I pick up your children
And tell you not to worry,
That I'll babysit them just fine,
And you smile a

He come fresh from the country,
Fast on his feet, kind of lean and lazy.
Not much meat on his bones and a whole lot alone
and more than a little bit crazy.
The old six string was all he had
to keep his belly still.
And for each full-hour lesson he gave
He got a crisp ten dollar bill.
She was married for seven years
to a concrete castle king.
She wanted to learn to play guitar
and to hear her children sing.
So he'd show up about once a week
in his tight-legged faded jeans.
With a backlog full of hobo stories
and dilapidated dreams.
She said, ''I wanna learn a love song full of happy things.''
She said, ''I wanna learn a love song. Won't you let me hear you sing?''
She said, ''I wanna learn a love song. I wanna hear you play.''
She said, ''I wanna learn a love song before you go away.''
So he tried to teach her a couple of chords
and an easy melody.
But it always turned out
she'd rather listen to his guitar and hear him sing.
He could hear her old man laughing in the den,

protected from the darkness
your eyes on me.
For every whisper
a chill caress my senses.
In an instant, your name is revealed
or maybe in a lifetime, or even more,
as your essence is elusive
you are so abstract yet so real...
Is our task to capture your unique fragrance
enclosed in a red rose's petal
following your path, and never leaving you.
You are... Love.

Into a vain fake realm that beauty is still unclear.
When the sounds and the colors of the world,
Will start to dance under the ancient rhythm of life.
Reflected flashes travel at the ocean’s splash of waves.
As the memories lie down and rest into the endless fields of fantasy.
And the currents hauling the moments,
Burying them under the weight of water.
What if the sun goes darker and the moons will rule the days?
Nothing will disturb the paces of the universe.
The stars will continue to fall at the endless space,
And eyes will continue watching them disappear.
As the mind stops and the soul sets free to fly.
And the planets move forward chasing the unfulfilled dreams.

But still I follow every thought through
Wondering what I should do

To her remembrance of old
in a dream that sits at the edge
She runs till nightfall
Through gates of gold
To feel his soul
steal her heart
Only to fall backwards
