Dying

with painful needles
infused hopes are pumped into tired veins
but though once beautifully alive
she is now like a dried rose
already past Death's doorstep


Dreaming beneath

she waits beneath the waves
eyes upturned to the darkened sky
watching the stars
salty white foam her blanket

the whales sing her a lullaby
such sweet sorrow

she waits for the night to pass into day
for the sea to part
for her heart to start beating


A darkness

secretly there's a darkness in my mind
lingering, alluring
I -must- look away

but this day I can feel it's pull
-stronger
-more hungry
it's leaving me weary of strangers

in all their eyes I see danger
and entangled in webs my thoughts stray
-poisonous
-pained 

damning my soul

dead poets society ~ playing with fire
the bodies left behind
angels passing
the truth: midnight is a lonely place

Us

breathing in starlight
we explore the Milky Way
invincible dreams

The wrong choice

it is not the horned one that haunts us the most
not the one under the bed
scratching and clawing at our feet
it is the ghostly one we barely see
reaching for our soul to keep
from which there is no walking away unharmed
for unarmed to its intrigue
we might succumb to its voice whispering
the right choice is to make a suicide pact
to walk away together
not realising
we're walking away
with one already dead

Show me

show me joy
show me sorrow
show me love
like no tomorrow

Sphere star

synchronized metals
everything's connected
spheres orbiting spheres

Teddy

bear toppling over
I swear I heard a chuckle
secret lives of toys

Like stone

memories have become mangled
& strangled words have ceased to be spoken

it has become cold inside her tortured soul
the inner fire that sparked vigorously
now frozen

to late to take back the hurt
to undo the damage that is done

watch her become like stone
crumbling
eyes closed

A fragile light

within this the temple of sorrow
candles cast soft illuminations

I offer upon my hands
a fragile light
-my life

all the hurt, the scars are mine to bear
burning bright on the inside of my soul
they blind me
bind me

I pray to temper the fire that feeds them
to set myself free

The fabric of time

seamless - the fabric of time
still I see ripples
and folds

I feel the past future of us

I know there are boundaries which I can't cross
but I still seek them - frantically, fiercely

hear me screaming
always and forever
I shall not yield

you are everywhere
always and forever

Vault

the long & faraway gone
linger
not ever forgotten
my mind - a memories filled vault
more precious than gold
