Have You Ever?

Have you ever needed to call out To the world 'Help me please'? Only to know that it's not something you do with ease Have you ever looked in the mirror And seen a stranger staring back? The face looks familiar But your soul the eyes do lack ...

Just One Tiny Clue

I am... I have no clue Just what am I? Or maybe ask who? Am I just a lie?   Would you give a hint? Just one tiny clue? I would give a mint To just know who

One With The Night

Empty Hollow   A shell Of a man   Eyes overflowing Dampened cheeks   Falling tears Reverberate   Shattered The tinkle Of falling pieces   Filled with Evil darkness   Blacker then Midnight on a Moonless...

Colors Of The Seasons (repost for CJB)

Summer is vibrant greens bursting with energetic life. Autumn is a riot of color splashed across the canvas of life. Winter is dormant, done in shades of gray and black and white. Spring is tentative browns and newly birthed greens.

Behind Locked Doors

A miserable, damp chill brings shivers Dim grayness stretches behind and ahead Cold stone walls drip tears down in rivers Locked rusted doors fill the soul with dread Fading in the distance of an endless hall Onward, ever onward, into eternal...

Blinders Removed

First in childhood's innocence do we see clearly Without shadowed, twisted judgments, open to all No blinders inhibit us from loving all sincerely Unaware of maturity remorselessly driving our fall We age, learn and grow wise yet are blind to the lie...

Transposition

Guilt and sorrow spin round and round No hope of redemption to ever be found   Say them all no forgiveness is needed Screaming sorrow inside is heeded   Outside and inside visions opposed Reality somehow has been transposed

To My Friend, Lela

Hello my friend You warm my heart May our friendship Never part You are so young and wise And though still a child You're a boon to my heart You always make me smile Your wisdom astounds me You're a rare one indeed You've made me a friend...

The Pit

The pit is so lonely, dark and cold Saps my will and strength, makes me old It grabs me and drags like an undertow Down towards the hellfire far below Shreds heart, mind and soul for it's dinner As mortifications of the spirit for a sinner ...

Adrift On A Timeless Sea

The waves lap gently at the sides The tiny splash of their passing Almost unnoticed among the eons The sails flap ever so lazily Stirred but slightly by the mild breeze The wake barely trails us as we drift so calmly upon this ageless sea Time passes...

The Beast He Is Me

Now I understand so more of where I've been I wish those others could only have seen It wasn't me that said all those things The mind wasn't mine, it was a bird on wings Flitting about, all those thoughts so wild Spinning around, they couldn't be...

The Battle Rages Within

The land has grown dim The battle rages within It's fought for my soul A most terrible toll In silence it passes The light it surpasses My Sanity the prize Of these darkened skies A prize that's so dear I'll lose it I fear Hopeless it seems It's taken...

Out Of Space And Out Of Time

Out of space and out of time Waiting for that magic chime A bell rings when all is done Signals goodbye to everyone Tic toc tic toc tic toc Ever onward goes the clock Never back and it cannot pause There is but one escape clause Whirling...

One Day At A Time

A new day dawns, bright and clear And with it all the things that I hold dear Yesterday's gone with all it's trouble and woe The emptiness has been filled, I love it so Tomorrow's a dream that may never come Today's all I have until it is...

It Doesn'T Work Anymore

Positive, negative, yin and yang Ripped to shreds by bloodied fang   Here and now nothing makes sense Nerves quivering so taught and tense   Rotten corruption buried deep inside Driven to escape, run away and hide   No place in...

High Atop A Crumbling Peak

High atop a crumbling peak Whipped by driven gales Eager to hurl me off Up above a gray, turbulent sky Writhes with the beat of madness Split asunder in violent cracks Jagged flashes rend tumultuous clouds Birthing ionized radicals And crushing sonic...

The Beast

I cackle with glee At your misery Blood drips from claws I defy humanity's laws As I shred your heart Bloody tear it apart And desecrate your soul I merely play at my role As I revel in your pain You doubt you are sane Not knowing I am real Making the...

One Way Glass

Enveloped in one way glass Allowing pain to enter inside Yet outward none shall pass Inner darkness the place to hide No one looks, not one can see Through cold impenetrable wall The madness raging inside of me Into the grave the voices e'er call

Isolation

The walls press in like weights The silence hangs like the dead sea I'm the one who lately hates The stillness that surrounds me Other bodies fill my home Noise and commotion do abound Yet here I sit alone In stillness with no sound My...

The Voice

Inside me there is this voice That seeks to end all choice It tells me I'm no good And end it I should It harps on all my wrongs Ending all of my songs It says I deserve the pain Standing out in the rain Tear drops fall forever

Dark The Fate

Forward and back, round and round Existence is spinning all around   Mind fractured, there and back Emotions bleeding under attack   Soul withering from the assault Dark the fate that's been wrought
