Shadows of the Pysch


Why do I solemn seldom lie,
and stare upon the ceiling high?
While earth rotates within the sky,
I simply, softly, dryly cry.

The clock strikes twelve long daunting chimes,
shadows distort which once were mimes.
Silhouettes boast in dance and rhyme,
they pierce my thoughts, disrupt...Read More

Ripped Apart
I channel fire in my heart
And it singed my soul
My heart black as coal
Ripping heartstrings apart

I think I forgot how to feel
As I ponder the moon
Midnight is soon
I need to remember how to heal

All I have is written word
But I'm...Read More

Love's Gallant Steed
I ride like fire from darkest dawn,
Above the spire of mountains high,
And though the light is pale and wan,
I sear the heavens where earth meets sky.

As miles behind me fall away,
I drive my gallant steed to fly.
So on I ride...Read More

Lips tastefully wanting

Hands soft to the touch
Arms needing my body

The Reality of depressions hold
The Reality of Depressions Hold

The heart throbs with every beat it yearns to be loved,

To feel that butterfly flutter of affection, a touch of love,

The soul yearns and searches for happiness and comfort,

To feel at home, to feel at peace...Read More

Epiphany of Doom
She was falling into the black hole

Slowly at first, then fast

Arms as black as coal

They were cold and sharp

Pierced her with all the hate they could muster

They had never seen the light of day

All life they wanted to shatter

She was...Read More

Gypsy Love
Rustling skirts of gypsy women
Ears all tattered with gold
Tambourines and bells abide
While hearts fly by on wings of old

Hoops of flaming fire
Honey nectar flows freely so
Eyes are black as coal at night
Red lips are all aglow

So Rustle those skirts my...Read More

In Somnus

In my dreams I did great things
Sweet lullabies the moon sings
In my dreams I never lost my youth
Even if they echo a hidden truth

Perhaps I could have been great
But maybe that is still somehow my fate
Sometimes it's so hard to...Read More

Where Wood Sprites, Fairies and Pixie dust

This Friday night was as-black-as-coal, he ignites a blackberry-colored cigar,
His belly is filled with fried chicken, Hennessy, and caviar.

This is, without-a-doubt, undeniable…

The intoxication is accredited, and honest-to-goodness notarized,
The spirit hypnotizes critical-thinking, the caterpillar forgets the past as a butterfly.

This is,...Read More

White is pure driven snow

Grey is somewhere in between

I therefore wonder what you mean

So I will wait until daylight

For you to wake up from your night

I hope that what you mean

Is that grey is nowhere...Read More

Lost soul that cries for the light
Like a burnt out fire all that remains is ash
Black as coal, how can it ever be bright?
Days become nights and nights are a nightmare
How can it cleanse itself of all the deeds?

After the England semi final


Dad has ordered a new shed,
he'll site it in the shade
replacing the one put out by
the local Fire Brigade.
The wheelie bin is full of food
almost a three course luncheon
with sausages as black as coal
and harder than a truncheon.
Home made sauce...Read More

Each morning's a test of my will
though I'm awake I lie quite still.
And gaze out past my window sill
a longing glimpse before first pill.

Pain resumes, for sleep can but stall
its slow excruciating crawl.
Yet half forgotten dreams enthrall
and I strain my...Read More

Your eyes are as cold as steel

He stands 11inches tall,
his eyes are black as coal!
He wears an enigmatic smile,
and he has no heart or soul!

His given name is "Sawyer",
but, I decided, that don't fit!
So, I'm gonna call him "Roscoe",
don't know why, I must admit!

Deal with the Devil
You’re searching for a saviour
In these hollow halls
Blood staining your clothes
Eyes as black as coal

"Heaven help me"
Says your unholy spirit
You don’t know where darkness ends
And where you begin.

You are bitten, raw with pride
As your bloody hands clench mine
You promised me...Read More
