chest ribs broken

Decimated heart Torn out Cut from my chest Ribs broken Your rusty knife wounding You hand it to me, my dying heart Silver plater cold tarnished As if you are serving me Something which was never mine Removed and bleeding Hollow place where it once was It still beats like moth wings But it is… Continue reading chest ribs broken

roar howl battle cry

A storm clouds the horizon Like smoke on the battlefield Have I used that metaphor previously? Sometimes I cannot remember But of course I am not talking about a real storm Or real clouds or a real horizon There is no real smoke except for that which plumes from your mouth Tobacco sickness sour There… Continue reading roar howl battle cry

my tinfoil knight

If I could, I would give you fairy dust so that you may fly away. Give you happy thoughts so that your feet lift off the ground. Give you your own magical pixie to guide you home. If I could, I would show you what I see in you. Give you a magic mirror that… Continue reading my tinfoil knight

in silver, frozen

Finger tips clutch tight The symbol of my strength That dangles from my neck The Dragon The Steed The Saintly Knight The idea of belief in fairy tales, a comfort in the face of realities I wish to run away from Cast in silver, frozen Schrรถdinger's cat like Dragon, both alive and dead Blood, both… Continue reading in silver, frozen

away run run

Looking back on life What did you think would happen? Scarification ... Intimidation Only so much I could take Run away run run ... I am battle strong What did you think would happen?

Break and accelerator. I just keep driving My hands firmly on the steering wheel but knuckles no… Continue reading the view around me

make the darkness your fucking bitch

So, today I had one of those weird days... something shitty happened the other day and I had to wait till Monday (today) to fix it. As it turns out, because of the shitty thing (which was solved within a few hours) I will be getting a "pay rise." I say "pay rise" because technically… Continue reading make the darkness your fucking bitch

midnight stars once

Autumn always happens too quickly It sneaks up on you That silent demise A promise of rebirth My soul is quieter Where once a bonfire burned Raging like witch hunt's fire There is now a new flame A deeper one Warm and cool Not burning but bright Leaves, where once green, start to turn at… Continue reading midnight stars once

music, air and wanting

Small forevers In the little intimacies Standing close But not touching Sharing earbuds Sharing music Sharing time Air and wanting The only thing now between us Whispered words, like Lyrics or poetry or nothings But is this real Or just another fantasy Just a dream Because I stand here alone Waiting for reality Waiting for… Continue reading music, air and wanting
