Day dawns, dripping with despair




The death knell drones

Discouragement defeats defiance in the dank dungeon where Idwell

Diseased by down and out desperation

Drowning in depression of dinosauric dividends

Dire deeds do naught to dispel the disasters that develop

Dependence on the dynamic dowsed, drying to dust

Deterioration to the degree of disgusting diffidence

Disparagement dispatched, dispersing disorder

Look At Me

Standing in the moonlight

In all my glory

My alabaster skin glowing

Hips swaying gently

To a melody on the wind

That only I can hear

Fingers delving

Touching secret spots

Concealed in shadow

Thick and cold

Encasing my essence

No hush left in my wake

I make not a sound

As tears stream down my cheeks

Even my crying is muted now

My heart, shriveled and dying

Broken without a whisper

The Chosen

Lurking beyond the shadows

Betrayers to the darkness

Those that are incapable of understanding

They mill about, waiting to pounce

Seeking to destroy the delicate balance

To turn us against our own

Think Twice

The death knell sounded for all to hear

Though no one did

You knew who it was for

And none had a care

Only a matter of time, you said

Should have happened eons ago

Ah, but it did

Then ages ago

And again, just now

I die all the ti...

I stand silent

No Harbor

Sadness falls like night, cloaking me with a cover of bleakness

The hush which encases my life, a barrier to any words that might soothe me

My heart is a beacon, a haven for broken souls who are without hope

I too was once overflowing with dreams

Until they came crashing down around me like sloughed off skins

Inky slinky don’t dare blinky

Oily coily rum tum boily

Draw the line at warning you thrice

Dangly fangly time to mangly

Erased by some cosmic force intent on stripping me of everything

I’m adrift
