The Essence Remains

December 29, 2014

sweet pea scent
her dolls still sprawled across room
bed unmade

Details | Senryu | |

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire

The New Year

welcome to the nightmare
365 days of triskaidekaphobia
where will you hide

The world didn't end in 2012, so now we have to deal with the number 13 all year long.  I wrote this poem with that in mind.  Of course, my tongue was firmly planted in my cheek.

Look out my window
Street below lures it's victims
Neon lights blinking

Closed Door

the door has been closed
it has been bolted and locked
don't try the window

my heart is secure
your words are no longer "keys"
soul sanctuary

image is tarnished
no longer will I welcome
a fallen hero

bloodthirsty suckers, vampires on the prowl for prey - a blast of sunshine

scars left behind

cigarette burns
up and down her left arm

night moves

daylight makes me plain
    black of night is where I bloom...
        dreams and destiny

The Catwoman

villainous feline
seductive curves tantalize
thoughts of the dark side

Details | Senryu | |



bleak and dark that house
a single window lit up
on the second floor

i’m denied the door
may only inhabit woods
surrounding the place

no comfort    no lace
only weird hooting of owls
my company keep

woods so dark and deep
the lonely space where I died
left my chosen one

shot from lover’s gun
now i haunt the two of them
on each moonlit night

gazing at the light
howling with the timber wolves
maddened by the sight

Butterfly Secrets

Butterflies whisper
The secrets to peaceful life,
But our cars crush them.

Incomputable shades of darkness

inside and outside 
freezing cold storms rule the waves 
sun's light and warmth barred

shades of grayish grey 
only overt light in sight
defines the dark day

night time during days 
when light stays on deathroll
hell is so nearby

In the Shadows

Man sits in shadows Darkness consumes all of him… Blackness of the crow

Minced memories come
   Fading, coming to... fading-
      I don't know what's real

   Dragon shadows dance
      In the graveyard of my mind-
         No longer lucid
       Tell me where to go
          Tell me what to do! I fear-
             My sanity lost

Frolicking in the Dark

Frolicking in the Dark
witches on wild brooms, black cats with red, hungry eyes - daylight on the way

The end of the world — 
I will see you all in hell.
May I rest in peace.

stretch your wings
reach for the sun
death sentence

I am the ice king.
My heart and soul are chilled, fuzed
Into an ice spear.

The cold can't touch me.
I have forgotten the warmth
Of the human touch.

I am alone, lost.
Yet I search for my purpose
By waging a war.

Side Note: 
Fresh ice cubes can bite
When held tight in bare hands.
But the cold felt good.

Jack Horne 

Her dark eyes
So intense
When we met

Those dark eyes
Spoke of love

Angry eyes
Flashing fire
As she left

                                                  all use light at work
                                            few things unknowingly hate
                                                before sleep switch off

Eternal Cycle

Midnight has fallen,
Fated to be overrun
By bright, sunlit skies.

But Dawn also breaks;
And Daylight is forced to fade,
So Night might rise.

Eternal cycle
Unbroken for centuries,
Until the sun dies.

Pulled the Trigger

Bullet wounds
The criminal shoots down his
First targets

How dare you
Shoot them uncontrollably
CHAOS grows .  .  .

Don’t shoot it!
The victims are running mad
And you pulled

The trigger
I’m terrified of your strength
DROP IT, man ! ! !

Black Diamond Night

The night, oppressive The darkness reigns within it Vision falters, dies Only one form sparkling Somehow throughout the dark night Black diamond shines The harsh pitch black night Holds this dark diamond shape And harbors a hope Black diamond night A feeling breaches inside A new stone to show
