Blessed Hope, Rays Of True Light, And Silent Prayer

An ancient man in darken and morbid cloud
no longer full of vigor and foolishly proud
Constant lashing winds, setting heart aghast
as rising black and purple waves cry of the past
Beseeching heavens for signs...Read More

The call of the wild one
As the crow flies
'Cross the teal skies
And the moon dines
On the night

As the dog howls
Across the town
And the last cloud
Fades from sight

As the darkness breaks
And your skin
Crawling with the evening
ghosts
starts to freeze

When the moon has turned to blood
And darkness feasts...Read More

As the Crow Flies
As the crow flies

I died. No child under nipple. No child under bib.
I died. Without ever having loved or been in love.
I died as the crow flies. Straight and placid.
I died. unmanned, in holster, uninhabited.
I died coralled up in moments,...Read More

As The Crow Flies

Staring past the curtain,
At the vigilant crow upon the mast,
The creature unaware of a presence,
In a moment forever lost.

Unflappable in its endeavour,
A breather from its hunt,
A distorted view of the world,
Its cackle alerting its murder..... of its...Read More

Premium Member Tale of an Old Crow
I was hiking in the hills, and I was talking to the air
when a fork in the path, took me first here,... and then, there
Prickly thickets, were aflame with brilliant crimson,
entrapping my feet, with a pin-cushion prison

The foxgloves too, grew...Read More

Living Close To A Nuclear Plant
Living Close To a Nuclear Plant

By Elton Camp

The location of the nuclear plant I despise
For it’s not very far away as the crow flies

When built, the largest in the world we got
It was capable of producing one gigawatt

But frequent trouble...Read More

Sweet, Sweet Desolation
Ahh despair-
sweet, sweet, sweet desolation.
As the crow flies- enter onto me

Salvation from freedom;
on his wings- incarceration.

Nuveau of Elvis rhyme
Faith acquired through distress
Velveteen fraud
particle blues- such sad
and sorrowful hues.

Putrid breath come from the windy west

Endymion forsaken for his
ethereal beauty; In hidden...Read More

Ominous Cries
Ominous cries from the valley below
As the crow flies, he knows
Of yelling, beckoning, of another time
Of when he was too young to be in his prime
The temptation to stray is overwhelming
So he decided to begin; his trip to the valley...Read More

NOT TOO FAR

Dawn is but a crimson promise of her hug

Faint outline of a butterfly or a moth

His forefinger traces absent-mindedly

Empathy
Word by word I was drinking
your fathomless pain,
not asking to shine
any prehistoric sin.

You are still flying straight as the crow flies
into timeless grief.   

Why we have to suffer in the hands
of tiny barbs ?
Who will outlive the wits...Read More

As the crow flies from the bars of the frame, the sea lies
Two hundred miles away, and she cries

At the rolling tapestry, stained a green gaol,
A prison landscape cast in a black gale.

Her posture, it twists, it begs, beseeches,
Arabesque, her...Read More

Blood And Chrome
as the crow flies, his black razor shadow
tearing up the moon,
this is how my hot-wired heart
feels at your rejection.
alcohol fuel-injected twin-turbo hatred
and remorse burns up the 
asphalt surfaces of my brain dead emotions.
hot rubber smoke scorches my eyes;
my life lies...Read More
