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...

Philosophy of a Life-song

If your life was a song,

what would it sing?

Would it's lyrics edify?

Will it speak of the many people who's 

lives were touched by your existence?

Is it going to show that you stood for something?

Compose a motif that others will want to replicate.

Searching for A Loyal Subject

Folder: 
Just a thought!

Once upon a jaded queery

Questioning the weak and weary

Why hath those of lesser vows

Dare to quandry here and nows

Abstruse discourse censors lowbrows

Mind expanse of hearding cows

Arduous drivel, deafen no more

Cast them out like fetid whores

Fetch me one unfettered source,

"My kingdom for a mindless horse"

A Dogs Eyes

Have you ever taken the time to truly look into a dog’s eyes?

Your dog’s eyes send a million emotions per minute!

I love the way you smell, taste and how you sound,

Even when I’ve been a naughty girl or boy and you scold me….

 

When you rub those certain areas under my belly, near my butt and 

Ooooh behind my ears. Love is not a strong enough word.

I would give my life for you; I will be loyal till death and even beyond….

 

When we take our walks, or go for that run 

even when I’m old and can barely walk I come alive and feel so free

why you may ask, because it’s you and me….

 

have you noticed my smile lately especially when you throw the ball

I can jump so high and almost fly to catch that old ragged ball….

 

Have you noticed some other emotions lately? 

Like when you leave me all alone and crated for hours on end

but then you walk back into my life and I leap for joy....

 

Mommy or Daddy is home

Did you forget to fill my water and food bowl today; I’ll search your eyes

Sniff the air and try to comprehend why….

 

Please don’t hit me, kick me or torment me as it frightens me so and I really

Don’t understand what I’ve done wrong or to make you so angry

I just want to love you, be your loyal companion until one of us leaves this world

Going into the next!

 

Take a close look into those dog’s eyes, if you truly look deeply, you will never again be the 

same and if you can abuse that beautiful animal beside you, then you have no soul, no heart and 

are much too vain!

 

When a dog looks at you, me or any human being, all they ask is to be loved and cared for.

How could you ever look back into those eyes and deny them these few small details of time?

I’ve looked deeply into many a dog’s eyes, the reflection I saw looking back at me….

Pure and simple love and graditude.
