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!


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


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
In poisoned air
Finally a dream come true
A never ending dream
Isn't life beautiful?
It is now...



The Dinosaurs are gone
They lived a 100,000,000 year
Their spirit is around us
Silent, but I can hear
'Enjoy your time small ones
We know what must come to be
For all that you are now
So once were we'.

Time’s Defiance

Time seems to be wayward,

Stubborn as well,

It goes on and on,

As if controlled by a spell!


Time is so rude,

Only itself it hears,

None from the earth does matter,

But the Creator it fears!


Time brings joy, time brings misery,


Time does as it longs for whimsically!

To Watch The River Flow


There were cloudless days 
Sunless days 
Without so much 
As a breeze in the air 

Days when the trees and flowers 
As I watched the river 
Sitting frozen still 

These were my winter days 
When spring and summer and fall 
Had withdrawn 
To another time of life 

I believed this to be 
A time of peace and tranquility 
But that was a tale 
Told by younger men 

This was a time 
Of reflection 
Like the formless shapes 
That appeared in the icy waters 

A time to prepare 
In the most gracious of ways 
My goodbyes 
And fare-thee-wells 

These days 
I come here often 
Not to think of my failures 
But rather, to let them go 
To send them off 
And let them fade away 

These days 
I come here only 
To watch the river flow

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.

Not Enough

I'm not strong enough

I'm not good enough
You think this is a one&done marathon
When I'm really running 
Past the finish line
Legs aching
Stomach quivering
To reach perfection
Or some form of appraisal 
This is a joke 
No one understands the distance
The time it takes to even reach 
A minimal checkpoint
It'd be better for everyone
If I took myself out 
Out of this race 
Put my misery out
With one strike
One blow
One time 
No time
Author's Notes/Comments: 

I feel bad when my family says I'm not good enough sometimes so I have tried and tried again to be good enough. I then realized after writing this that I need to be good for myself and only try to get to where I want to be regardless of what others expectations or opinions are. Keep your head up :)
