Striking down to its knees, the very calamity that
once over took me. Bless you, from above,
as from my lips between us both, a kiss from your lover.

To glorify her in full.

Imposed, the creation

Filthy, the very cause

the grave of past gone by,
decaying with every bite
of a gluttonous sloth with an ancient cause.

borderline loss of sanity from the commonalty.
Have I lost track or do my eyes deceive,
the horsemen's tracks are of disarray,
and I know not which one has come.
Now, the angels look onward,
gazing with hopeless eyes,
searching for faith in the fallen creation,
who now wither and crawl,
away as they fall, into the Abyss....
Declines, the signs of the end,
the near and far come and go,

The retribution that has longed for thy touch.
The clustered storm, prolonged, procrastinated,
hovers over to knock you down.
The portal, that vortex, to plunge you down.
Have you to own, no peace...
only what is allowed to your filthy hands...

In the solace of the blackest dawn I seek you

In murk of scorched grove, Witches tears drip from
the leaves caressing the tip of my tongue
Acrid winds scented by forbidden incantations,
slither deep into the prelude of Love's sacrament
In shallow of ebon fields I bask in beautiful decay,
as black roses drift in ballads of nocturnal reverie
Beneath the providence of dark stars, I am the river;
the ink which you lust mystic poison & naked flesh
Undress thy ache upon sable breath, drink my gaze

The princess of DarknessThe princess of darknessThe princess of Darkness in Free Verse More Like This
wears a black cape
her hands are cold
her nails are like blades
she sows the pain
at each place where she works
she takes the souls
to feed her demons
she has control with the human mind
her charm seduces
you are obeying
we turn in bondage
in a day or two
you are a slave
in a world of death and blood
out of this gloomy place
pain prevents you from moving
you are trapped
when the light goes out
that you close your eyes
the mistress of hell
is never far from you

DreamThere he stands,Dream in Free Verse More Like This
The man simply known as Dream.
He's different now, fallen from grace,
And risen back up to it.
He was a joyous man, but he was beaten,
Torn and scarred, starved and tormented.
How did he get past it all they question me.
I know the answer, only because I asked him myself.
This is what he said to me,
"You can only be broken so much,
Eventually they stop trying,
Then you take every scar,
Every fracture and shattered piece,
And turn them into strengths and advantages.
Since they can't hurt you anymore,
You have nothing left to fear."
He turned his tortured soul into flawlessness.
That is who he is now, a happy wounded soul,
A perfect little broken Dream.

Do They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II)After years and yearsDo They Even Know? (Beautiful World Part II) in Free Verse More Like This
Of sitting in sorrow,
Watching the Beautiful World
Outside my window,
Feeling pain of separation
The great divide between me and them
It felt as though my heart were made of wood
And termites were slowly eating away,
But they would never finish
There was always more to consume.
I just wanted to die,
To escape torment
But for some cruel reason,
I was never given that option.
Now I just lie on the floor
The carapace of a person
Existing, but not really alive
All days blur together
I'm not even sure, exactly
How long I've been here
Scrunched up in a ball
With all my hope lost.
I just feel nothing,
I've become anesthetized.
And now all I do is wonder,
Does the world outside,
Even know I am here?

Placing my hand into the silver liquid that flows
Slipping slowly into the water to feel its cold bite
Swimming away from the edge deeper into the lake
Limbs are freezing yet feel so alive
Lungs are burning from swimming to far
Turning slowly to begin the trip back
A current catches my legs and rips me under
Can't reach the surface
Air is escaping from empty lungs
A shimmer of light above the glass cage
Burning blood that prays for oxygen
My still form lying at the bottom
In a deep permanent slumber.
No More LightThis dream has become a realityNo More Light in Free Verse More Like This
The once imaginary pain has become real
Kneeling before the altar I scream
The dead pull me apart
They tear at my memories
Slowly I can see all the dead people walk.
They have come back for me
I did not ask for this pain
The pain that the dead have brought
Life no longer shines in this dark world of pain
Pain created by my mind
The time is soon when I will be consumed
End it all with a quick twist
The graceful blade across a trembling wrist
It is much too late for redemption.
This lifeless body marches with the dead.
Bleeding out all the pain of tomorrow.

Such a strange person.
So fearsome and yet so relieving.
Lately death has become a friend of mine,
He and his pals have been close company with me.
Silence is the only person I really like talking to,
The ring of her voice is so soothing.
Isolation is the only company I need,
He holds my hand and guides me around.
Depression is a great friend to me,
She is always there giving me a hug whenever I need it.
These friends are the best ones I know,
I have other ones but they aren't as great.
Happiness for example is always leaving.
She is great when she is around but she doesn't like to stick around.
Outgoing is such a social guy,
But he doesn't seem to have time for me,
Always out partying with someone else.
Sound is just plain annoying.
She never knows when to be quiet,
Always blabbing away or making noise to drown out Silence.
Now these are all just friends of mine,
My best friend who I mentioned earlier is Death,
Who gets along with everyone.
Because he is always around whenever

This frame I live in can only hold me up for so long
I'm breaking inside and I'm falling apart
Is no one here to hear my silent cries?
I want to escape from this place
And the only way out isn't a choice
The doors are locked the key is lost
I can't see
The darkness is overwhelming
My only sanctuary is when I have lost myself
Far away on a dirt path leading to nowhere
Where the trees change colors and talk to me
And there is nothing I can do
This road is going downhill
And I can't seem to run fast enough
I'm falling to fast
And there is no one to catch me
I'm losing myself
This time I can only go so far.

It's Too LateThis is my apology.It's Too Late in Free Verse More Like This
For coming into this world screaming
All you wanted to do was love me
And yet love was the hardest thing for you to do
You told me how much I meant to you
And yet you were never there for me
Only when it is too late do you come running
Only when the clock has struck do you look
It's too late.
Perhaps that is why I am broken
You always told me to be kind
But never did I listen
I didn't listen because you never listened.
But now it's too late
Time is up
Here comes the crow
Singing my tune.
You pull me aside and beg me to answer
But I look into your eyes and you can see it.
It's too late.
If you had loved me you would have seen me falling
Maybe you did
Maybe it was too hard to ask
But now it's too late.
It's too late to say I love you.

Dream of deaths not too sweet
Dancing in the wind
Singing to the sky

Tears at the flesh.
Releasing the adrenalin.

Of her all
A child in a misshapen form.
Spectres of memory
Cloud her countenance
Her eyes, bright and keen.
Scanning the horizon
She traces the unchartered peaks with her tongue
Delighting in the worn roughness
Of cracked enamel
And the taste of metal.
She is far
From her bloody body
Scarlet marring translucent white.
She takes a small, teetering
Finding her new feet
Feeling the comforting crunch
Of Bone and sand and dust
