Buried Beneath

When the moon smiled crimson
weakness departs...
Set, you're the storm darkly clouding skies
across a red desert stained
in an ancient evil being
one spawned recoiled serpent deceiver
under the sands hides
bringing disorder mixed with violence
creating war destroying all good
where nothing else matters...

I turn around looking into your eyes
soulfully held captive with shadows
helplessly falling to the knees
as watchful eyes dart
to old desires pulsing ruby red,
perfect prey captured and held
forever in her clutches 
drags hearts to their fates...

Sapphire seas churn, storms pass the centuries
light years from now
when the breathless flame burns blue
an eclipse totally takes over the heart
once upon a time
weakness you fall by the way side
as strength is held
within a union of crowns
for she reigns as queen of the heart
owns every key to my demise...

Buried beneath the sands
and times forgotten
names and dates written
on the surface by her finger,
then blown away
on the same winds she rides,
free to prowl once more.

(A collaboration by Liam McDaid & Kelly Deschler)

    I don't usually like collaborations Kelly but this one is good, I mean, I like them but I mainly like poetry written by one person alone as you can't really say that it is your own, anyway this is a brilliant one so congrat's to you and Liam and take care my dear, nice to see you on FB........Vera

    I thought I would call in and pay my regards, Kelly. An interesting poem...I really do enjoy reading this particular type of subject. It imparts the kind of imagery and makes use of the sort of language that my favourite poet, W.B Yeats, employed to such impressive effect in his work: Mysticism and legend flavoured with supernatural events. Very nicely done! My very best, Kelly...And my warmest wishes as always. :) john
