The Seer

Folder: 
Just For Fun

Today I sit upon my chair

and watch the world unfold beneath

The stories that I see in there

I to you, for now, bequeath

 

I see age in specks of dust

A lifetime carved in wood

Time's corrosive touch in rust

Just like a lover could

 

My eyes open to the Sky!

And there I see the stars

But look down, and time flys by

With speeding headlights of cars

 

Look to the rain, wisdoms countless

The same water fell on Rome

I speculate, with reasons doubtless

Civilizations last shorter than stones

 

You may think I ramble insanely

That my mind has truly blown

But these thoughts forever chase me

And will leave me utterly alone.  

Angel

I never believed in Angels
I always told myself it's just fiction
Nothing that really exists in any way


But then I found you
The most beautiful girl
And that's when I knew
That Angels do exist


You have a smile of an angel
You have the heart of an angel


My love for you will always be
I will always stand by yourself
Hoping that you will always be with me


No matter what happens
I will always love you
And you will forever be in my heart


You are my Angel from above

Salvus

Folder: 
Light and Dark

Right here

Right now

With this ocean between us

Where tragedy confronts eternity

I can finally see your light 

From the darkness of my own heart

A grave machination of despair

The soul taken

My corpse remains 

You walked through my fires unscathed

You've passed through death's dark gates

And yet still live

Excelsior

Still, I look for you

Relentless, I'm lost without you

The ghosts of my past haunt me still

Continuously burning me alive

A whispered silence inflaming my throat

Exhausted with no lungs to breathe

No air with which to speak

But a hush and a sigh, then I'll be gone

Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?

As my vision bleeds to red

Your freedom burns my heart

It puts fire in my bones

Until I'm left with ashes of what once were

And shadows of what could be

Immortal

I don't need to be reminded

      that its all meaningless

I feel the slow hours tick by

      from my already too short life

 

Another breath

Another bottle

Another wasted day gone

 

Fill my lungs with cancer

      And why?

I don't die faster

Fill my gut with liquor    

      The pain doesn't leave

 

Why try when there is no end

I refuse to race without finish

"Everything is meaningless, says the teacher"

Listless at my own apathy

I don't care to care

       I can't 

Because it doesn't matter

 

Why live for life's sake?

Why die to end it?

 

All is without purpose

"Everything is meaningless, says the teacher."

 

Leanan Sidhe

My heart aches

It yearns for my beloved 

A fire long kindled burns within 

 

She is not of the Earth

Her scent is in the wind

Her voice in the rain

 

Oh how I long for her!

 

She is ever before my eyes

When I wake she is beside me

When I sleep she holds my soul

 

I quiver with desire for my mate

 

She is more precious than diamonds

Than mountains of choice silver

Golden is her smile

Seafoam and starlight in her eyes

 

Oh how I yearn for her!

Polaris

Folder: 
Light and Dark

A solitary star

Distant and cold

Amid a universe of shadows

 

It shines alone

Small and white

It glows alight

Clean and bright

On its own tonight

 

Near the horizon

Resting between heaven and earth

War

The dream

Always the same dream 

A sun covered in blood 

Over a field of grey

Lifeless thousands 

Innocents where Death took them

Now waiting for judgement

Waiting to judge

Blackness with a red star

Shining down on the aftermath 

Death has a large appetite 

Its jaws bite down on all

Gnawing on their inanimate bodies

The dying are crying out against it

But their life is but a candle in a breeze

Soon to extinguish

They were but innocents 

Caught in the crossfire

But not I

Too long have I fought this war

Come Hades, come quickly old friend

My time is near 

And I am tired

Take me

Treading Water

What's the purpose in this life of mine
To keep swimming in an ocean without end
The tide pulling me far from shore
They say I'm fine
That I'll survive
But I'm only human
My strength is leaving fast
How long can I stay afloat?
I sink into nothing
A world where I can't breathe
Fire within but water without
Suffocating
Floating
Flying
In poisoned air
Finally a dream come true
A never ending dream
Isn't life beautiful?
It is now...

St. Jerome

St. Jerome in the Wilderness

Master, Master come to me,

                                                                                            Savior, Savior hear my plea.           

 

O Lord I understand my punishment.

I will not flee this banishment.

Until a time that you are done,

For you alone art the holy one.

 

Through temptation I have stayed,

Loyal in your gaze and unafraid.

I bear my cross as you bore yours,

Even with the window outdoors.

 

I use this quill to help you Lord,

As I hear the echo of a far off chord.

I praise your name to the land,

And rejoice when I hear the voices of the sand.

 

Amen, Amen I say to thee,

 

Amen, Amen please set me free.
