Fears of Trees and Tears

Everything stays the same for me

I see

Everything stays the same

For you the trees move

With the rhythm of the wind

But dare not leave their roots




Dark candle



That’s all you are

Nothing More

Were I to wear the fur of my beloved cat, the softest pelt known to the fingertips of mankind, I would feel peace.

Were I to melt into any reality between here and there, the broken space unseen by you, I would be solid; A specter intent on contentment.

But, as of such deficiency, I weaken. I weaken of anger. I weaken of frustration. I weaken of fear.

I we...

All in this design suffer

From a lack of original thought


Sucking from the host for survival

Ne’er mere babes

Suckling at the mother’s breast…




No love and no shame

Graces the touch on flesh

Thriving to steal every fruit

Of discovery to claim

The seed.


They offer nothing.

It’s not a reflection

Nor a transcription

Winter's Revenge (A Para/Oddpoet Collab)

Cold she is

Painting death with icy fingers

A deft scalpel touch

Oh vicious heart

Wanton killer

Your caress and breath

Hound the living

She puts a finger to icy lips

Shh… she hisses

Finger crumbles, tiny shards shatter

To end at elbow

Nay, the body matters not

She hisses eternal

Lips caught

Back To The First Kiss

That unfamiliar touch

Satin fingers


Piquing the most delicate

Of nerve




The subtle breeze of breath


                        Sigh of a most delicious d...

The world could explode.


The world could explode


Digest itself..

Platelet within platelet…

And all who ride greet death.

They die.

And only those who loved them personally

Give a good God damn.


So fuck you.


All you want

Is there whether you want it or not.

Do you want it?

Be human.

What do you want?... for the love of.. damn.. already said that…

I can still feel the warmth when I reach out

To pull you close to me

Sunken, immersed as in an innocent dream

There we lay as still

As purity

For at the core there was always the base

Of love’s surety…

You can lay on the ground bleeding

If you must

Bleed to your death

To spring again into the valleys of life

Over and over

If you must

And then do it again

Just one more time for good measure̷...

I just hover across this world

You know

Trying to decipher the lies from the truth?

But really

I know it doesn?t matter if the lies are true

Or if the truth is lies?

It just really doesn?t matter.

I know what is true.

The only thing that really matters.

What I feel is the only truth I need to know.

What I think is the only truth I need to know.

The lies I?m absorbing kill my heart

The truth I absorb kills it more.

Titter in the outer frame of your ear

When I speak these



Penetrate the drum

Into feeling…

Do you recognize my voice?


Do my spoken words elicit

The desire

To push farther into the sound?


I was never one for speaking.


I was never one for inflicting the outer ear

With my words…


My words

Flitter on the eyelashes
