Lonely Heart

1.Voices whispering        2.  Silent bells ringing          3.  Excruciating
  Heavenly secrets to me    Vibrating a broken Heart :   Heartache of pain and sorrow 
    Only in my head                A dark Heart in Hell              Echos in my ears

4.Loneliness, darkness    5. Tears live Forever           6. Bitter salt of tears
  A shawl covering a Heart   In a Whirlpool in my Heart  Cascades on coffins of death
  That beats in desolation       Eroding my Love                 As a broken Heart dies

7.Silence; Listening             8. Madness in my brain    9. The bleeding heart flows 
Absorbing morbid moments  Enables a Broken Heart   Down the calm current of death
Devourers the Soul               For self destruction              Feeding blood to Hell

10 A lost soul travels     11
   The fiery path of Hell 
     Forever: Alone 
                              To be Continued

        Author's note : I am using the Library's Computer But my time is up
                                Continuation will be on this page
             LOVE, ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege...Harry

It's rough when you start
to think that the world would be 
better without you.

[Before anyone rushes to call mental health, I am just fine. Just had a few down moments and this haiku popped in my head, so I had to write it down. Really, I am ok.]

Dinner alone

The table is set:
one plate, one whiskey bottle.
He eats in silence.

Embrace In a Dream

dancing while band plays
inelegant  sits alone
hadn’t woken from dream

sits alone to find
a lie of  love pulled apart
awoke from a dream

embrace in a dream 
no one  sees  she sits alone 
wake up without her
