Autumn winds are dying
As winter rears its head.
Soon the land will sleep again
In the silence of the dead.
The gray sky seems a blanket.
The golden trees now bare;
Their branches reach out to the sky
To grasp the misty air.
Dark browns replace the orange
And grays replace the blue
Soon snow will change this landscape
As the spiral dance holds true
The silence will be welcomed
By a solitary crow.
An eerie song of mystery
That few will ever know.
For winter keeps its secrets,
The ones not hard to hide.
The answer's all around us,
But the question sleeps inside.

Satan's Fury
When Satan's fury burns in Hell,
And you feel the power swell,
The Darkness flows from within the lake,
All for the cause of Evil's sake.
The time of doom is close at hand,
When Darkness shall rule the land.
Through the Darkness you shall go;
Only where, He shall know.
Although the Darkness has much might,
It must conquer the piercing light!
And when that light has been snuffed out,
You shall hear His demonic shout:
"Blessed is he who has My mark,
For he shall live in the land so dark!
Death to he who is spawn of the light,
For he shall feel My furious might!
In this land so dark and cruel,
All is under Satan's rule.
And then, alas, without the light,
All must perish in eternal night.

How can it be
that my heart's now alive?
I had thought it to die
long ago.
In the shadows I pondered
the course my life followed...
and where it now leads,
I don't know.
As I sit here alone
and your name haunts my mind,
I feel passion...
it burns at my soul.
And I sing out your name
as I long for your touch
and I know with one kiss,
I'll be whole.

Gray skies slowly darken
As the sunlight fades away.
I sit here alone in the twilight,
Amidst a landscape of gray
Shadows reach out grasping,
The coldness stills the air,
I glance down upon the lake before me
To the reflection at which I stare.
What image is this before me?
Whose eyes burn into mine?
Vague recollections taunt me
Of what I left behind.
Each path that I have chosen
Leads me places I know not where.
Despite my better judgement
I simply do not care.
What roads have I not traveled?
What lessons have I to learn?
As the shadows creep yet closer,
There is so much that I still yearn.
(To be continued?)

There are no shadows in the darkness.
All things merge and they are one.
The whole unity - illusion;
Flick the switch and it is gone.
:iconjjcoughlin:jjcoughlin 0 0
The Void Within
In dark'ning skies the mystery lies,
What wisdom comes this way?
A silent scream can't pierce the night
Where lurking passions lie.
And as the clouds descend on me,
I can not get away.
There's nowhere for me to hide;
Only madness if I try.

The Night Before Christmas
T'was the night before Christmas,
When all though the house
Not a creature was stirring,
... except for me...
The traps were all set
By the chimney with care,
In hopes that "St. Nicholas"
Soon would be there;
The children, so foolish,
Were drugged in their beds,
While I contemplated,
If I'd have their heads;
I sat in my chair,
Alone with my gun,
Reviewing my plans...
Oh, THIS will be fun!
Then from my radar,
There arose such a beep!
I sprang from my chair,
And started to creep.
Away to the window
I flew like a flash,
Tearing open the shutters,
The windows went crash!
The moon, on the breast
Of the new fallen snow,
Gave a luster of midday
To objects below;
When what to my wondering eyes
Should appear...
But a miniature sleigh
And eight smelly reindeer,
With that little old driver
I began to get sick,
I knew in a moment
It must be "St. Nick."
I readied my gun,
With intentions to maim
Then shot each in turn,
As I called them by name:
"Die, Dasher!
Die, Dancer!
Die, Prancer and Vixen!
