Literature
Puzzle of Life
Moment by moment,
piece by piece.
The shape of each minute
seen in every crease
Our comings and goings
is each a piece of the puzzle
Not every moment is a nightmare
though not everyone is a dazzle.
We have but this one picture
each that we must create for ourselves
And that's a piece in a bigger puzzle
add another to the shelf.

Literature
Legends and Legacies
In the passing of time,
the only things to live are legends
We only really only talk in legacy
and pass on in the way that we are destined.
We leave behind
the budding plants, only just a sprout
and we talk long of what's to be done
once all is said and out.
But that's a sort of legend
to live on in your name
a planned sort of legacy
in history's game.

Literature
We Scream in Colour
We all scream in colour
but whisper in the black and white
but who listens to the crying
n the deepest part of night?
We all sing and dance and live
and we cry and scream the same
we are warmed by the same shouts of sunlight
Sure, the colours in our shouts may differ
and the wetness of our tears
but each day is different
but remain in years

Literature
In the Language of Dreams
In the language of dreams
you're running fast and faster
but you're not going anywhere
chased by some unseen master
In the language of dreams
you open your lips, trying to shout
but only a whisper
comes from your impudent mouth
In the language of dreams
you are not the master of your fate
You may be in a dream or somewhere in a nightmare
but before your destiny's sealed, you must wake
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine

Literature
At War With the Weather
In oppressive heat
dances the light
as occupants of day
wait for bless'ed night
In globs and drips
the sweat rolls down
as all not to
in ice, drown
You cursed the winder
now look where we are!
With the weather
are we constantly at war

Literature
Marching City
The city's war drums, rage
as her citizens watch.
See her devour
See the blood, splotch
The city's machinery demands flesh
The marching city needs bones
but that's just urban life.
It's what we call bones

Literature
Vanity in the Name of Man
Vanity in the name of man
who preens before a mirror
but never asks, “Am I wise enough?”
“Do I have a solid center?”
The world spins around him
around his blush and smile
and the universe around his skin.
His own, mile after mile
He hisses at her and
calls her a vain creature
because she dares to stand
in his own double feature
The spotlight is his
and his, alone
but that can burn
as anyone can know

Literature
ToH - 75 - Mute - Before the Doors
I am mute before the doors of Olympus
as I face towards the gods
there are thrones there
made of humanity's flaws
And I am mute
before you
like you were a great man
but this is not true
For, below your countenance
is yet another face
The one you used to ascend the Mount
and find this holy place
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine 0 0
Literature
Heroes of Romance
Heroes of romance, no harlequin novel
but of lovers great and tall
Standing at the abutments
or high on castle walls
They love deeply, but thoughtless and cruel
they say "Am I but a sensitive soul"
then moan of how evenings make them ponder
but no less apt to crow
But still, on and on they love
not conquests, not their fellows
but what they love is the act of loving
and their own voice, echoed
Take these lovers, who tell you poetry
and claim to be fine and true
But just below the surface
what they love is not you

Literature
ToH - 177 - Lurking - Things Below
Lurking in the deepest
corner of minds
lives a darkness
you would loathe to find
It screams in the silent places
of every living thought
it chokes out pleasantries
in every inch, fought.
There are worlds just below
the surface of things in the deep
and in your mind
your secrets, keep
Should you find these
slithering things
you would hear a
familiar ring

Literature
Wildhood
Wild girls and wild roads
spinning out of control
before us and behind us
until the country's sold
We used to use our feet
till we trained the horse
and then cars became
an overwhelming force
Now we contain our wildhood
to pent up spaces
within us.
Let's let it out of the chained up places
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine 2 2
Literature
Fruits of Desire
The only thing you left me
was the taste of the perfect first kiss
and the world was never the same
as soon as I'd known what I'd missed
I had tested the fruits of desire
that was your fingertips upon my skin
that left me dying and dizzy
and upon it's axis the world spins
This was a world new to me
and I lusted after more.
It was only till I needed it
when you knocked me to the floor
Laying on the ground
I watched you leave
Like summer watched
the falling of her leaves
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine 1 2
Literature
My Story
Could you help me find
my 'Once upon a time'?
I have lost it in the midst
of all this circumstance and rhyme
You should know where it is
you've your 'Happily ever after'
But I cannot find my start
and you are filled with laughter
I want to go on
an adventure, grand
but when I attempt a rocky shore
all I find is sand.
One cannot grow brave
on such a land
one can only grow complacent
and things can only go as planned
But maybe that's my story
nothing grand and great
Just a short little poem
and in bed by eight.

Literature
Seize the Night
Sleep the day and
seize the night, that's
living life to it's
full height.
The stars above
and the darkness bellow
but in the streetlights
they are echoed.
Seize the night
and keep tight the reigns
stare at the sky
until come the rains
Sleep the day
in all its garish light
and find your strength in
the darkness of the night.
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine
:iconmadam--guillotine:madam--guillotine 2 4
Literature
Dusk
In the purple light of dusk
we seize the night.
The sun grows heavy
with the burning light.
Dusk is the time
when the moon conquers
and the stars are at full height,
we are left to ponder.
Dusk in the evenings
and the early morning sun
paint the sky in brilliant colours
when the day's ended and begun.
It has been said before
and it will be said again
But sunset is wonderful
and as the sunrise begins

Literature
Tanka 15
We sit to the side
reading while others dance
jacket and heels
on the chair and on the floor
Just two bookworms out of sync
