Everything, Everything, Else
It's everything
- everything.
It flickers and it bleeds
it cries out
it breaks
it waits, it hesitates
And is gone.

The light turns
The light turns, and
I fall
Like a spinning wheel
Grazing the night sky

What It Reveals
The life of my light
Bark worse than bite
The blackness burning bright
The bloody blinking blight
The bird upon the kite
Extra to excite
Feed the child's delight
The peace before the fight
Fearful feathered flight
Sudden stagnant fright
Depth seen from a height
Thorny hearts ignite
No shining-armoured knight
Bloody Mary's might
Endless, empty night
A beggar's desperate plight
A daughter's funeral rite
Any creature's right
Your secret sears my sight
Spitting out your spite
Porcelain, small and slight
Crying, huddled up tight
A child dies tonight
Bloodied hands write
A shrieking, wailing wight

Night of Hollows
He wandered around the house blindly, ducking into empty rooms yearning for them to be filled, for presence if not companionship.
The crash echoed in the night, and the black dog of terror arrested him on the slick bathroom tiles.
It's friendly and it's light and oh god and oh god and oh god...
Tried not to scream silently, to reel the unnamed back in and swallow it like a fly on his tongue.

They bathe in eachothers ashes;
From the pyres another rises;
Another rises.
Too late, too long, the blood dries still.

There's a world inside of you
I can see it in your eyes - sometimes
When you don't lock me out
Keep it all buried inside
Playing masks, and smiles, and clever conversation
While the heart of you struggles and dies
Gonna find me an answer.

I was born to strangers.
My siblings are strangers;
I don't recognise them.
My teachers are strangers,
My schoolmates are strangers;
I don't see anything in them.
I saw a glimmer in someone once
Over the other side of the room
But I looked away, and when
I looked back,
She was empty, a stranger once more.
I dated a girl who flickered with light.
I married her, was happy, but then
My children were strangers
My wife loved the strangers
Her light had gone dark once again.
I work with strangers
I work for strangers
Strangers work for me.
No light in the strangers,
No hope for the strangers;
I then saw a stranger in me.
I had lived among strangers
Fell sick among strangers.
I lost my will to shine.
I was dark like the strangers,
A stranger among strangers,
I was dying, way past my time.
But on the brink of the blackness,
From darkness to darkness
A light came to blind me,
A woman beside me
She ate at my darkness
We lay, light with light,
And slept for eternity.
