Abandoned by brethren

Fading memory of name


Dark foreboding





When life is purgatorial

Death begets reprieve

Take the suicidal dive

Into a welcoming abyss

Nothing matters

Folly is a misinterpreted bliss

Where heart is forsaken

Spirit burned to ash

Fueled by unmet expectation

Unworthiness the gas

Battle wearied foot paths

Lead to a dark deep(w)hole

Crumpled dying leaves

Serve kinship to the soul

All roads lead to destruction

All lifelines have been cut

The body is a phonograph

A moment in its rut

Gray mi...

In the Hourglass Sand

Egg shelled terrain

Closeted pain

Crimson drips from the heart

Shadow land waits

Closed gates

Silent love from lips in part

Steadfast convictions

Minus afflictions

Readjusted form of a soul

Acidic tears like rain

Ignorance of pain

Band aides to make one whole

Looking glass life

Pools of strife

A drowning in remorse

Standing still

One more pill

Every path has its course

Revolving doors

Extinguished is the flame

Burning desire for each breath

When the spirit has withdrawn

And kindly would be death

Compiled have been losses

Each bringing their own weight

Crushing the weakened shoulders

And the man who bears this fate

Hollow are the eyes

Silent is the voice

Gone is the beauty

Vacant is the choice



Cold Fire

..Vibrations sound

Ice crystals wound

 A beating heart

Cold fires

Frigidity of mind

Frozen steal cage

Dark morbidities rage

Cold fires

Defense against Offense

Cruelty denied

Life’s little deaths

Exposed breaths

Cold fires

Faceless strangers

Masked evil dangers

Shadows fall

Cold fires

Deathly creeds

Dormant seeds

Winter’s moon

Pale light night

Cold fir...

I stand here, alone , at the precipice


Under the dark skies of thought


Looking down into the abyss


The swirling black wisps of life


Clouded perspectives that made choice


The air thickens suffocating a will to look away


This is my life whispers the wind


Opaque reflections obscuring understanding


Look deep, deep through the darkness

Birth Was His Death

Posted by Azrael on December 1, 2010 at 10:22 PM Comments comments (0)

When you reflect on a long life

Think of those you may have touched

When your death parade proceeds

The music  plays and the horns blare

Your body stiff and spirit gone

You are perched above for that final view

And you gaze down upon the ground

Your final sadness is etched like an epitaph

As you view a procession of none

Not one soul did you touch

Not one heart did you hold

Existence merely an existence

For all the ...

It is merely one voice

A faint echo within the multitude

Distinguished only by its resigned silence

Strength of desire fading away

Like a snow flake destined to disappear

Its singular beauty lost within the many

Uniqueness melts into a white blanket of obscurity

Followed by the endless parade of individual sameness

Each different yet at a distance.. conglomerate

Clustered into anonymity

The fli...

Reflective Considerations

Posted by Azrael on November 10, 2010 at 8:42 PM Comments comments (0)

It’s the mirror

Reflection of confusion

Moi ?

Collection of misguided attentions


The stoic compilation of self


Familiar unfamiliar face

Hallowed eyes

Meets the stare of satisfaction

Youth ?

Held captive by

The gray aches of age

Resignation to

The crossroads of bygone goals


For the union of love


Of lost exuberance


To just give more

Dark Waters

Posted by Azrael on October 18, 2010 at 3:07 PM Comments comments (1)

The propensity bathes in dark waters

Subjugated by antecedent tides

Melancholy begets creativity

Certitude searches walls within to hide

If this be ones nature

Stoking fires of sympathies soul

Why drown in the Delphian Sea of Self

When bleeding will make one whole

Expectorate in the face of alienation

Exude the dark boiling blood
