The Chalice

Posted by Moondreamer on April 20, 2010 at 1:36 PM Comments comments (2)

Would you drink from this plain chalice I offer?

Neither jewel encrusted

Nor layered in precious metal

Did not Guinevere taste from it?

Arwen?


I do not come as mendicant

I come as one who would know you

 

Would you drink?

Would you know me?

Peel the layers

Of falseness

Into my heart?

 


I wish to taste you

Savor your essence

This world can no longer contain my hung...

Broken Crayons

Broken crayons

Grasped by

Crushed fingers

 

 

Vainly

try

To stay inside the lines

 

 

Sizzling tears

Burn

The innocent

 

 

Scorching beauty

 

 

A flower

That

Shall never ever blossom

 

 

 

 

Heart wrenching greed

Insatiable

Monolithic

Complete

Undeniable

Will... The Night...

Will... the night...

Hide you?

 

 


Or

 

 


Reveal you?

 

 


For who you are

 

 


Will you always hide

In shadows?

 

 


Alone

 

 


A slithering hematologist

Laying belly to sand?

 

 


Wouldst thee deny tr...

Shhh... Child

Take my hand

Your imagined sins are absolved

 

 


Ignore the scars

The open wounds

The thousand heartaches

Laid upon your feet

Like sacrificial offerings

 

 


You need not bleed

 

 


Everyday

 

 


Your pain

Screams God's cowardice

As He prepares for his next feast day

I will Guard your Dreams

Sleep free my lady

Let thy troubled brow

Soothe in safe dream

 

 


Let the prancing cloud hoofs

Of childish toys

Bring smile

And joy

And bend your lips

In too unfamiliar ways

 

 


Let not mendacious lovers

Assault thee

Nor

The loveless toil

Of fruitless searching

Scar your beauty

Death is Woman

Cloying smiles

Of genocidal attar

 

 


Iced moonbeams

Braced in creaking mist


Armed arrows

Of monthly Blood penance

Finding clear mark

On Unforgivable memory

 

 


A mote in Darkness 's soul

Plying trade

With never arriving dawn

 

 


Stars engulfed by night's nothingne...
