Sleepless Night
Sleepless Night

Teardrops, bagged eyes, a way of sin
The mirror reveals a lost eternal soul
A conniving move against tonight's phantom glow
Voices circle around the insomniac moon

Premium Member Lost To Dementia
Night of the dark soul 
demons infiltrate 
the gap between self
and oblivion. 

Your mind’s a fragile  
dysfunctional place
that is under siege
and cannot be saved.

Illness Is
a lonely place.
It's nothing to do with that person
who asked "how are you?" this morning.
It's to do with staring through
fear-frosted windows
as snow sugar-sifts the street,

Premium Member Dark Loss
He tried to fly
flapped his wings

High above him
a dark duvet
drizzled sadness

Only yesterday,
or was it last week
his wings and feet
carried him

little raven
didn't remember

Carry me
carry me
he squeaked

don't fear
she's dear

tight clutch
soft touch

wears white

too sick
she's quick

your ache
she breaks

your ill
she feels

one pill
you still

your nerve


your shock
she blocks

you scared
she cares

through sleeps
she peeps


"thank you"
she coos

I see…
red splotches on her night gown
still oozing down her face
“I fell again.”
She looks at us
with that same wobbly smile
“I’m Ok! Don’t worry. I’m OK!”

Kill the Silent One

He has invaded, unseen
Lurking and silent
Evil destroying one and all
From cell to cell
Crawling underneath
Leaching blood and soul
Smiles are murdered
Futures destroyed
Families ruined
