City Set Aflame

Crashing waves inspires a melodic chorus

Voices whispered in each wave

An ominous wind does follow

A bend of a string influences sorrow

New horizons fraying reality

 

Grease perception with oil

Sand over lost regret

Best keep your intentions silent 

Wounds inflict only the defiant

Against ways neither set in stone

Nor sand that drifts

Or passed through words

Only felt by those destined 

 

Each step closer to extinction

Gods failed experiment

Or serendipitous chaos

A blank page stained red

Seeping ink staines through pages

 

Blue skies turn to night

Night turns to day with flame

Regret felt by all that follow

A silhouette of sorrow

We reap what we have sewn

Mass manufactured aspirations

Fall upon deaf ears to enlightened

Knowledge gifted through torment 

 

Mankind is a festering parasite

Take a penny

Take another

The bowl left dry

Seek no help when you have gifted none

 

When everything becomes irrelevant

When skies tear open with fire

Ashes burning to your soul

Medusa’s statues crumble

The city will burn

We will stand upon a hill

And gaze upon uncertain revolution

Dark Room

A dark room

Not so dark

When lights emerge

With pulsing color

A dream state

Made real with vision

 

A subtle cry

Yet no one home

Alone again

No tears of sorrow

But mine that tap

With time as an echo

 

Tick away

The clock will sound

Another day

Another tomorrow

The whimper I hear

Is not of my own

 

Whose is this torment?

A woman’s sobbing

That turns to laughter

With mockery

Or abject humor

My thoughts ablaze

 

Whispering comes

Yet no thoughts spoken

I obscure these words

Never to see

Nor speak

But felt by those who hide

 

Rest now

Ignore pulsing lights

Or shadows that darken

Or brighten days

These twisted sights

To be forever forgotten.

The Blank

A shadow darkens the doorway

Silent screams muffled by fear

Growing presence clouds the mind

Cool sweat seeps onto warming skin

 

Black sockets obscure glowing eyes

Victims fetal and crumble with pressure

A creak brings trembling among prowess

Strikes lethal intention within

 

As darkness approaches

So do goosebumps emerge

Solace weeps silent wisdom

Only a ghoul remains taught in sin

 

Brace the ongoing tyrant

Evil personified by hatred

Lay five scattered bodies

Hallucinations from within

 

Blame not the disfigured man

Approaching with a raised hatchet

Blood pouring in malice

Bleeding terror from hymen

 

Madness blamed by insanity

Insanity provoked from the cause

Black ooze protruding from eyes

Prevalent horror begins

 

He is a blank.

I’m Late

Past purple walls

Through darkness and untold rapture

Paralyzing beauty obscured by an ajar door

A skipping tune seeps with an ominous wind

Run

Rabbit

Run

Placing his hand upon the door

Feeling the presence of the girl inside

A slow creek

A still silhouette

Her blue dress stained

Skin white

A black bow contorts her skin

Perfection punctured

Needles thin

White eyes offer glazed expression

A whisper still upon her lips

Blue lips ooze with shining white

Nails imbedded into bed sheets

Her hand still grips onto bloodstained shards

If only he hadn’t forgotten

If only she could forget

Her love for him boundless

Yet lover’s whim tainted

Distorted

His love for her but a memory

And yet remains her vacant stare

For love has past but life cannot go on

A metallic feel against his skull

A loaded gun makes the least sound

An empty barrel screaming

With bullets only a sound.

Obscured Sunset

Silver linings obscure a golden sunset

Blackening hearts outmatched by light

A ray of sun scares the idle crow

A single bell begins a melody 

Another cloud

Another darkness

A gust to chill the warmest blood

 

Blue skies gray

Trees  turned black

A teardrop falls

Warmth feels cold

Love felt lost

Days forever gone

Without her loving touch

 

Crumpled leaves litter an empty path

 

A clear canvas lies ahead

Gone is the day of adventure

The setting sun turns your head

As you begin to walk a road

Walked by you 

And you alone.
