La Petite Mort

I love your naked body
A canvas for my claws
In the midst of pain and pleasure
Your bound to do it all
From the ripping of the flesh, La petite mort 
You feel the little death
Only one rose knows your name
But the thorns are why you came.

The Great Pumpkin

It's never too soon take ye heed and prepare for the night of All Hallows Eve cleansing your hearts of all malice and greed that ye may be judged worthy and noble of deed... 
These words are a warning for he has been summoned and with a swiftness of wrath The Great Pumpkin Is coming!!!!

Sticks and Stones

The stones that are thrown to break my bones
Pile up to they start to weigh
And the sticks don't decay
Nor do the words that you say
That I thought would never hurt me

Dark green domains

As we clear cut out Forest 
and lay waste to the trees 
we unleash our demise 
like a revenging disease 
so be ye good stewards 
to the dark green domains
or it's regrowth will Feast 
on your rotting remains.

Secret Place

I try to let you in 
But I still defend 
my deepest heart 
How do I start 
to lay bear my sins
and still be safe 
in my secret place
Weathered and worn
And bent by wind
Laped by wave
Erosion staved 
from my dwelling cave
My secret place
I hide my face
Metaphorically erased
Invisible to none
But never seen
Either I come out now
Or be replaced
But how can I leave
My secret place
Compelled by your Love
That has brought me here
To a place where there is
Naught to fear but fear
So now I emerge
Free from dark 
And confined space
For you I leave
My secret space 
Bear to the world
My Blood dose race
Because the comfort I've Chased
I feel in your arms
My new secret place.

Elysium Fields Nevermore

Nevermore the river styx shall ye reach 
The trickster has played his tricks leaving your bones to bleach
Take ye heed in life be fair or in death the raven will steal your fare.

The powers that be

Face to face
Face the facts
Get your strings off of my back
Controlling me 
Force to see 
Your twisted ways 
I turn away 
But not to die
I want to live 
Out of your light
Blinding fright 
Casting shadows like dead of night 
I scream aloud 
But no one hears 
A call to arms falls on deaf ears 
The dumbing down of society 
Has bypass me 
But played on their fears 
Till the paths not clear 
Back to the sight we hold dear
To envision a world not ruled by hate
And run by those who shed no tears

Desires of the flesh

Those who dangle love like tempting fruit to get a taste of your flesh are often left wanting when they reach out to grasp desires of their own only to find that the heart that they want has been trampled by the sharp foot of conquest one to many times.
