Life

Arete

Hope is a candle in a sea of darkness, eagerly awaiting the sun. 

Trust is a drop of the purest water, in an ocean full of desert sand.

Loyalty is the assurance of your own two feet, that you will stand.

Love is a bubbling geyser; filling, and rushing to overflowing. 

Empathy is a mother's love, from someone that you don't know.

Peace is an ocean of glass-like water, that ripples of war cannot move.

Honesty is a pure wine, with no dregs to ruin the taste.

Angelus Canticum

Folder: 
Light and Dark

Every single note was a song in itself

And every little breath was a melody

And I, a painful ripping squeal

That bellowed from inside of me

 

Her crimson lips had softly smiled

As she sang angelically 

But no more than a dissonant chord

Was the best that I could be

 

Oh, angel of the nightly song!

How wrapped in you I have become!

How can I go, and sing alone

Shouting like a falling drum

 

I can't forget your heavenly voice

That pierced the ever-present noise

Through sky and the pervasive smog

To me, whom naught but death employs. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I lost the will to keep working on it. It's sat on my desktop for weeks now and it's just time to post what there is.

Southern Gothic

Folder: 
Tales and Fables

I can't tell where I'm going

Don't know where I've been

But I feel I'm moving quickly

And I guess that's all there is

 

I've gone round in my head

Side to side within

Reason had too much sense

Foolishness left me behind

Walking to a dirt-road crossroad

Guess I'll say hello

 

Whiskey from the heavens

Daniels in my veins

Traveling to hell on that southern gothic train

Baptized my humanity in the river

Left my soul with the morning star

Guess I've lost it all

 

They say that those with nothing left

Have nothing left to lose

Well hell, I'm far past that

With no future, and no past

Don't mess with me, son

Or my face will be your last

 

Whiskey's long gone now

But the moon's still shining bright

And there's heaven to gain

But hell to pay

The brass is still warm

But I'm cold as the grave

RECENT QUOTES Quote - Love is like a rose: very beautiful, but scarifies. QuotesBook

and I don't know how you will destroy me

Folder: 
2019

will it be with something I’ve known

 

like it was sitting

on that shelf

for years

pretending to not have a blade

before it came down upon me

 

you sat next to me

for so long

and then I was

holding you

 

sometimes I think

it could be lies because

I have

never liked the truth

and being deceived into

my own ending would

just be too fitting

 

or maybe

it will be your eyes

because if you stare at something

too long

you’re bound to turn to stone

 

you probably think

I stare too long

I think I need a lifetime

 

if I keep thinking about

how I will end

maybe the universe will not

take the trouble to

do it

It Begins In The Morning

In the morning, all arise
Early, we open our eyes.
The night, all it is gone
And easterners have won
Thy rising; the morning sun.
We've only just begun,
Singing unto the sky,
Seizing all that is nigh,
While oh slowly we tread
Much more of life ahead;
Thy hours, to be seen
Thy fertile fullness, serene,
Mornings for thee
All await, already.

Children Our Future

Our children, adults will be tomorrow
Thy nation people
Are they who'll further grow,
Another nation's people
To rise the flag, holding it
To keep a fire, bright and lit
With songs of country minstrels,
With awards and victor laurels,
With arms, together coming
Unions of youth when thronging,
Become a country, indeed,
To sow for the land, a seed,
That grow a many in the end,
For those many sowers, many hands!

The darkest stars

As long as there are stars to see at night
There will be problems for us outside
And there's nothing to grant you a better life
Just the expectancy of something worse
Only to be surprised with something
Probably as good as it was in the beginning
And that's how life rolls
How Earth's still turns
And how dark takes over the sun
How the stars shine along

Existence

I lay in dark and dreaming sleep
While countless wars and ages passed
While lovers lost and children died
The cycle ran until, aghast 
I opened my eyes, so I should see 
And learn from this unending past
That life is short, though days are long
And that we were never meant to last.
 
I woke to noise and screaming life
But death was ever found to be
Within the dissonance of voice
Born in children, grown in me
I ran until I fell alone
But decease, like a fey banshee
Moved silently in my shadowed steps
With no intent to set me free
 
I dozed through my own middle life
I couldn't care to breathe or die
To see my friends or family
Would just admit that I'm alive
I felt like life would canter on
Meaningless, though I'd strive
To fight the caress of lover-death
To hope my wonder would revive
 
I slept tonight a wondrous sleep
Of moon and star and sunlit eyes
From my bed, I heard her creep
And then I found to my surprise
An angel of unending rest
With promises to mesmerize 
I gave her my own soul to reap
No more left to agonize

I liked the first two lines enough to compose another poem
