The Reign

Folder: 
To Be Illustrated

"Where so many rush to fall asleep,

I tend to creep,

afraid of the a lack of light, 

what's in store for tonight. 

 

Would you like to know why?

I'm afraid of what's inside,

what I always seem to need,

what sleeps within me.

 

When the darkness falls

and my mind succumbs to sweet slumber,

lumbering in comes the pattering of feet,

clawed, and I can't seem to scream.

 

I try to get out from underneath the covers,

to run away, but I am stayed 

by the sudden jacket, holding arms back,

while at my heels chases the maniac. 

 

It is the ghoul, it's in my room,

and now theres nothing but abyss,

amiss of clothes and shoe and tooth

as I run to only bring closer nothingness.

 

And now I am within reach, looking back

at the black teeth, to tear my wide and tall,

before tripping onto face,

no hands to break the fall. 

 

And looking to what had cause the trip,

innocent children, empty faces,

look into me, through me, and it hurts,

it burns, no clue why they are in my plight.

 

And now taking flight, they chase me too,

I am running to a single point,

straight jacket still applied,

my escape impossible, my voice mute. 

 

Again, so focued to the rear,

I forget about the front, 

looking ahead to see now in front of me

the biggest snake ever slithers on scene. 

 

The snake grows bigger, stopping,

rearing its head, baring its fangs,

it wraps me in it's tail,

and squeezes me tight.

 

I can't stand the grip, crying out,

but no sound comes, 

just the sound of my eyes popping out,

and the sound of the plop.

 

The drop of me, hitting the carpet,

falling onto the floor, blanket wrapped around me,

back in my room, not monsters,

no snake no ghoul.

 

Just the sweat drenched shirt,

the paper-dry throat,

rattled, another night lost

to the internal battle. Nightmares reign."  

Author's Notes/Comments: 

So many have issues falling asleep, though the reasons are as numerous as some of them terrorizing.

Beloved’s Eyes

When something without permission,


Gets inside the eyes suddenly,


So irritated we feel,


There is no ease unless it is out entirely!


 

But the situation becomes worse,


When your eyes fall into my eyes,


Restless like the stormy wind I become,


My soul towards you crazily flies.


 

I feel hypnotic and start to behave,


As if I were your slave!

Forsaken

Folder: 
Dark

I’m searching for a way

To express these persistent screams

Living beneath these eyes

Crafting nightmares out of dreams

 

I’m searching for a way

To surpass these sadden seas

But I hold on to my Kraken

Swallowing the beast within me

 

Is there no place?

To let insecurities come to pass

To burn amongst the sky

To take wings in Earthly drafts


Is there no place?

To drown the insistent thoughts

To wither them to the bone

To expose them till they rot

 

I forget there is no place

To home creatures of my kind

The unforgiving weathered world

Leaving me behind

 

I forget there is no place

To embrace who I desire

My creature clawing outward

Set these streets on fire

 

 

Sitting Hearts

Folder: 
My Everything

We sat like strangers

The largest valley

Between two mountains

A slow deep breath

A back yard alley

A passage of soft hearts

 

Like a flower, bloom

A twisting refining notion

That the foliage within

Never dwindles among men

 

So with the silence; bound

There are countless

Verses unspoken

A slow deep look

A burning mess

A road of genuine hearts

 

Like a flower, bloom

A twisting refining notion

That the foliage within

Never dwindles among men

 

We sat like strangers

The largest illusion

Among the world

A soundless adoration

A grand prelusion

A path of rebel hearts

 

Like a flower, bloom

A twisting refining notion

That the foliage within

Never dwindles among men

 

 

 

 

Eyes Wide Shut

Folder: 
Prevailing

When I close my eyes

I hear this sound

Like a lullaby

Faint and distance

Sweet smells of nostalgia

Resilience

When I close my eyes

I taste these memories

Like how the sun dies

Mournful and Longing

Knowing by faith

Belonging

When I close my eyes

I feel this calling

Like the sunrise

Spirited and Near

I exhale encumbrances

No Fear

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sundown Eyes

Folder: 
Beauty

And the sky took with light

Reflected in my eyes; beaming

Feeling lighter and bright

Submerging my soul; dreaming

 

I’ve fallen into the crescent

A tight woven bond

Enriching the present

A long road too fond

 

A candle in the distance

Awakens the depths inside

A higher purpose of existence

From you, I cannot hide

 

I have fallen in to your grace

No sense of time; still

A torch for my darkened place

Adventures in twilight; surreal

Those Lovely Eyes!

Those lovely eyes,


Know no lies,


So black they are and,


Like the raisin, sweetened.


 

I wish I could kiss them,


The woman I love, my gem!


Unfortunate it is that distance she does keep,


Appears in my dream stealing sleep!


 

I wonder when will she be mine?


I wonder when will arrive that moment fine?

right before your eyes! 2015

Right before your eyes 2015

 

there she stands unsure and scared right before your eyes

she has eyes only for you never for any other guys

she'll wait for you till the end of time till death calls her home

you call her every night so shes never to far from the phone

and you brighten her world like the sun does after a spring rain

just so you know your all she wants and ever will again

you made her feel special and thats a feeling shes never really felt

shes as fragile as a flower is after the snow did melt

so dont push her away cuz shes ready to give you her all

and in case you havent noticed shes right before your eyes

never let her go you will feel and hear her silent cries

all she ever wanted was you willing to give of your time

but instead you push her away and that she knows to well

for in the end shes the one who will be in a living hell

shes never felt like this with any one in her life

and when your not with her it cuts just like a knife

so please dont push her away or she will wonder why

that you cant even see whats right before your eyes

Scent of death

Who are you?

what am I?

this is life--

we're passers by.

 

radiance falls

& fragrance lingers

this subtle numbness

tingles through the tip of my fingers

 

could love fill the empty room?

 

this desolate space,

it consumes 

the human race,

like a black hole 

a vacuum to the light in your soul..

 

hazey eyes

gloomy skies

sunshine cries--

the funeral's today..

 

the windows shine

stained glass

colored in disarray

 

I prayed to God, may you stay..
