The darkness outside blankets the cold
in an atmosphere similar to a summer twilight.
Trees heavy with snow appear thick
with blossom not unlike that of sakura.
Gazing upwards through those hollow boughs,
the sky glows effervescent,
a crossing of time and space tangled
in the intangible grip of one whose words echo
those things inside that fester in solitude.
A hand stretches endless in the frozen night,
fingers flexed around the spinning moment
embracing the time bound by invisible cords.
Released with a breath of mist
it trembles as it is held vibrant still,
reckless in its race towards the dawn.

This road that I have followed,
the path on which I've trembled,
opens ahead of me once more.
In my gaze it spreads so far ahead,
so many promises, so many possibilities
laid out before me in bright colors,
awakens the hope that has slept inside.
I have only to raise my hand to reach out,
to touch its vibrant hues
and I will become painted in similar.
Hesitant to feel that brilliance encompass me,
uncertain if I should at all give in
to the prospect of becoming something more,
chained as I am by my own insecurities.

This Place
I want to burrow within this feeling,
creep deeper into this place I've found,
safely ensconced in the slumber of peace
thought lost to me forever.
Can I stay inside your heart, your soul,
within the walls of who you are?
Can I remain in this warmth, this solace,
created by your existence?
Here I may forget that darkness
holding me hostage still.
Please embrace me in your life,
shelter me in the things you are
and I will rest in this place, in this meadow
where the sun shines so bright.

I want to disappear in dreams,
escape these fathomless emotions
that torment me when I try to forget them.
I do not understand why I must feel,
why I must yearn for something, someone
who I cannot want.
Take me into the arms of that vision,
that place where I am with someone
who cares for me in return.
Let me follow them into the endless night,
let me forget to breathe
so that I may continue on in stasis,
lost among those dreams that promise me
I will find what it is I seek.

Her Secret :iconhana-ginkawa:hana-ginkawa 0 2
His gaze of thunder rumbles
throughout the valleys of my soul,
bearing an echo of truth
amid the lightning fire.
Wishing to escape the electric reality,
my eyes turn away
as fear trembles in the afterglow.
Metallic-flavored crimson bursts upon my tongue
as teeth keep my words from answering the call
of his languid desire.
But his winds tear away doubt,
his rain cleanses past transgressions
lightning blinding me to apprehension,
opening me to hope.
I return his gaze with reborn eyes,
skin shuddering in waves of yearning.

And Years Will Pass
Like twilight slides slowly towards night,
so too does this understanding come upon me.
I am the silent oak, changing little by little,
staying the same while everything around me
changes with such a fierce speed that I cannot keep up.
Perhaps I am immortal, or just long-lived,
and I will remain as I am, unchanged.
The same as everyone I know moves forward
with such destinies that I cannot understand.
I'm waiting for that ax to tear me down,
still and silent, waiting for that something
that will rend me from my existence.
Perhaps it is merely death that I await.
Maybe death is that love I wait for,
that ever encompassing emotion that will end
the fearful, ever darkening future that I will live.
And perhaps I'm waiting for the wrong thing.
I try to move forward but am forever held back
by the loneliness I feel, by the fear I keep
between me and that which I have longed for.

Death of the Silver Dragonness
She will not burn again.
Wings broken,
soul torn,
the silver dragonness
can not imitate phoenix.
Buried beneath the waves,
she will fight no longer.
Sucked into the maelstrom
of a thousand year fury
suppressed within.
A storm none could stop
Gleaming silver skin,
will rot over shattered bones
until not even they could tell
of the defiance and loneliness once held
within glacial blue eyes.
