Candlelight waves from hidden drafts
Shadows danced on the walls

I heard the words destined to me

drowned in chastity and flooded with rave

In the middle of winter
within misty moors,
lies a melancholic meadow.

Hourglass

Sand falls
Through the glass
Love falls
Within the past
Memories dance
They never last
Head in my hands
As I stare overhead
At the hourglass

Stairs broken
Wheels unspoken
I fell
Grasping for air
Are...

We all arrive alone naked and vulnerable,

Night Comes
Softly and sadly
Up on the knoll;
The vesper bell
Begins to toll.

Lock all the doors
Blow out the light;
The hour is late
Sleep comes with the night.

Close all the...

unaware of the intense rain.
Despite grey clouds grimacing,
your radiant glamour enticed emotions.

through those luminous eyes.

It's raining again, grey neon skies,
washing away suppressed surfaces,
to reveal unhealed wounds,
to scars the eyes cannot see

sometimes they bleed.

Some say words heal,
but I resist to...

When daylight shuts her weary eye;

Down the streets where beggars sleep

And drug crazed addicts spend their keep.

Silence?
or
is that a cry
I hear

Screams?
or 
is that
memories
hiding?

Wall
yes I listen
to a wall
days
weeks
forever

A white wall
stares back at me
curiosity mounts
I feel the wall
whiteness
blinds me

My heart stops
a rhythm
still
dances

ah
a smile...

you betrayed every word.
Then your tongue promised
to only sing with sincerity.

lost in your angelic orchestra.
