FORTUNES READ the sign displayed
The store had not been here yesterday
shades of candles, books and bell
Drapes were hung from side to side
The windows all were dark
Where was this place a day ago?

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 37
I heard two distinct voices in the night,
Conversing amongst themselves most eagerly
They whispered like children in excitement
Their sardonic mouths sung many savvy tunes
It was Death I could perceive, defending me,
And he, a strange, distant friend

The Night Before Christmas By Edgar Allan Poe
On the night before Christmas, alone in my house, 
Sorrow gnawed at my soul, like a ravenous mouse.
Entombed in my blankets, I struggled to sleep,
Ready to snap if I counted more sheep.

I rose at the...

"The White Lady of Skipsea"

Last night I dreamt 
I dreamed of you
a kind of dream 
within a dream

my soul escaped, 
this firmament,
my immaculate heart
held hands, my fingers 
did entwine with 
handsome Morpheus

Crystal radiate

Premium Member The Wheel Turns
It has long been said
And taken as true

A fool
And his money

Soon parted.

With wealth attached
Silently adjoining this
So too…

Tied, coming swiftly along 
This also true

A willfully ignorant fool
And his freedom

Soon parted.

And, so too, do despots reign
As history...

Seeing Spirits
For years, Tim had the visions
Seeing things that no one could
If he spoke of them, he's crazy
He kept quiet, like he should
Just normal, little, visions
Of people who were dead 
Just wandering in places
He knew weren't...

There was a dear who had a ridge that she perched from
It was where she felt welcome 
Below there was a road 
Where cars must go. 

They would be driving in singles and pairs

The old woman appeared then at the edge of night 
Oh, but did the Shamans quickly slink away 
For they knew her well from elder times 
Unless heart pure, just stay the hell away.

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 27
Of Him and not me?
Muttered the dragon, full-formed, wretched, 
Stench unfathomable, seething and snarling
His great lungs expanding and exhaling puffs of darkness
Slanted, shining, scorching eyes burning into my own

What light shines but His own?

Plucked somewhere from deep within

The Dryad's Scream - 22 Mar 2016
I heard the dreadful Dryad's scream
As axe bit into woody flesh
The sap oozed out as scented cream
My veins stood out in rictal mesh

My wits all scrambled left me quick
My hands and face were full a-sweat
