IMAGINE

Posted by Marsha on February 18, 2018 at 12:55 PM Comments comments (0)

sitting in darkness

existing

surrounded by echoes

heartbeats

shrouded

embalmed

detached

invisible

i hide behind a false sillhouette

smoke and mirrors

sleight of hand

a rabbit in a hat

i hear but cannot speak

i see but numb to feel

i imagine without dreaming

kaleidoscope vision taints the horizion

unreal

skewed

divided

if you could envision my soul

what would your next move ...

Erzulie

Posted by Cutter on February 17, 2018 at 2:40 PM Comments comments (0)

I see you, dressed only in paint, beads,

herbs hanging like offerings, woven into your curls,

jewelry sculpted of bones and stones,

no metal to disrupt your lightning,

I see you naked yet wrapped in power,

dressed in storms of light,

of shadow…

~

In my dream (I was not sleeping…)

I saw you wreathed in pink smoke, it flowed around you,

in a serpentine river, like sunset clouds,

just catching fire with evening,

Taking Form

Posted by Shadow Wolfe on February 16, 2018 at 9:05 PM Comments comments (2)

Calling to the Mossy Oak

Words that curl by sooty smoke

Fires crack and spark so high

"I have a form to take this night.


 

 

From darkness, blood, and tears

She comes out of their fears

And laughing she ages expresses

The lustful sin her smile caresses.


 

 

So take the form and don't delay!

Her family is coming home today!"

Back with a Broken Cello

Posted by Wordmachinist on February 16, 2018 at 8:35 PM Comments comments (2)

Back like a dagger in the gut
no more ruts...I am screaming machinery!!!

Broken cellos make the saddest laughter
not sure what I'm after but
seeds can lay dormant forever
broken machines that rust
may be polished once again
and to each of you my friends

Shapeshifter

Posted by Cutter on August 12, 2017 at 1:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Drifting through the spaces between,

I travel by alleyways, game trails, train tracks

through overgrown valleys, dripping in grape vines,

barking dogs, the relentless hum of human life

mere yards away.

~

My skull, is a bone jar filled with madness,

roaring ghosts, quiet poems, restless tongues.

my dreams have dragged themselves into the world,

making my visage ripple, shift, glimmering,

as it absorbs the light.

Infected

Posted by Bsklgn on May 15, 2017 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Im infected by the genetics you passed to me

Poisoned by the soul I inherited from you

An evil sickness that ran through your veins 

Now courses through my own 

Our black hearts beat as one

A synchonization of genetics and fate

Each day I become more like you

Angry, Violent, Drinking

I can't stop what God has decided 

I cant stop the infection from spreading

Hope I'm posting this in the right place.

The Shakespeare Man

 

Alas my friend perchance that we should see
the twilight, Oh, the end of verse in rhyme,

or ever we should suffer such a fate
become the endless slaves of ever-time.


'Twill be such time I roll within the grave,
for long I've...

Freedom

Posted by Tammy Hendrix on August 17, 2016 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (0)

I found a flicker weary
Fading in dusky solitude
Beaten over in persecutions
Damned through self-flagellation


Carrying burdens that don’t belong
Bruised by those who would use
Betrayed time and time again
Tormented and terrorized


Standing reserved, an observer
Untouched still, depravity lost
Kept for a higher purpose
Here to love, to be treasured


I found a flame wild
Blazing in moonlights g...

untitled

Posted by Bsklgn on August 4, 2016 at 2:35 AM Comments comments (2)

Through smog and smoke

Past the bleeding oak

Beneath a misty cloak

Is where she did choke


I found her upon the grass

Her eyes shown like frosted glass

Her limp body, forgotten brass

Who could do this to such a lass?


Whispers came from the wood

I crept closer than I should

In the distance a tall man stood

His face obscurred by a hood


And with a shout he ran away

Farther and farther...

Bloody Monday

Posted by Bsklgn on August 4, 2016 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (1)

Black Monday, Bloody Monday

A rain of liquid pain

Drowning me, saving me

Long forgotten tears


Beat the man into the dust

Pay for his sins;

Greed, Envy, Lust


Treason against your family

Traitor to your son

The lies begin to unfold now

You should start to run


Drugs hit now; Faster, Harder

Blood pools in the street

When I catch you, Ill grind your bones

And pulverize your meat&...
