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.

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

scars left behind

cigarette burns
up and down her left arm
morse code s.o.s

secret contest

paralyzed patient
her chart says I fed her
I didn't

GHOST

GHOST

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

In the Shadows

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

The Catwoman

villainous feline
seductive curves tantalize
thoughts of the dark side

Memories

Jack Horne 

Her dark eyes
So intense
When we met

Those dark eyes
Passionate
Spoke of love

Angry eyes
Flashing fire
As she left

Senryu for Eyes First Meet

ICE KING

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.

The Dark Arts

The Dark Arts


Resist the dark side
Banish the triumphant eye
Behold salvation
