Misery Hates Company

I keep on forcing a straight face to hide my despair

trying to make sense of something that just wasnt there

I think I’ve dried both my eyes out, so blanky I stare

I think I know where I’m heading, I’m heading nowhere

 

When did my strides beside you reduce to listless shuffling of my aimless feet?

When did the time beside you turn to empty spaces hollowed out of me?

 

Let me be, cos my misery hates company……

 

I never broke any mirrors or signed in red ink

I never felt this was coming and I’m starting to think

that everyone else said something to sway you from me

you thought my arms become shackles and needed to flee

 

when did the sight of you deflate my heart and pain me thru my soul?

when did the thought of you shut out the world and kill my self control?

 

Let me be, cos my misery hates company….

 

Don’t reach for me, my suffering transfers easily….

 

i’m not here

i’m just buried under fear

Then some day, I’ll return

from this lesson I will learn

One Size Fits All

I dont want to ask anymore of you
for your heart is gold
your intentions good

but i still feel misunderstood

as if we see through common holes
the generic binds of tortured souls

I feel, as though the water stopped.
The rusted tap won’t drip

I am not one size fits all
but I’m a glove thats stretched to fit..

The Black Mare

“Silver moon, scattered skies an empty path and a fearless heart

with nothing to trust no laws to restrain the black mare bucks in a crackle of flame

The dendroids line our way, their swaying reaches that I swiftly evade

Through a meandering night howls a metallic scream voicing attempts to escape the constant binding of dreams”

My Brother Perennial

Turn your ears my friend
turn them and hear his word
he speaks

his whispers commanding
and his word emboldening

Dare not lay eyes onto him
because he sees all
he watches

his vantage point high
and his stare loving

Speak onto him
ask him your queries
for he knows much
and yet, answers little
because the best answer
was within you all along

he gives himself willingly
a bearer for your pains,
an avenue for your worries.
They follow in his footsteps,
and climb up on his shoulders
to be calmed by his touch

As those wheels stopped turning
elsewhere others started spinning.
Just as when the night sets in
elsewhere it is morning..

Nevermind

all i have now
and may have then
the rights to my works
and my legacies

who care not for it
yet all signed to they
no tangible value
Just discard of me

then turn the last page
ignore the gloss
the next step is backwards
and all for nought

its not cruel
its the way things are
no battle is won
just merely fought

So cherish it now, and thats all it means
nevermind what happens next.

if it desires to be
loved and kissed
or to be untouched
its all the same

its already purchased
so pay your dues
and forget respects
they have no shame

just a wicked grasp
cloaked in warm embrace
blissful but false
there for the take

and not for the give
the function of x
is just a stones throw
on a frozen lake

a prized possesion, held in a weakening grip
nevermind what happens next.

Thanatos hears no plea’s

Watery Grave (Sinking into the abyss)

A hand out of reach
through ten million bubbles

a light globe that flickers
a steel chest that heaves

a destitute dog
that wanders abandoned

he reminds you of autumn
when a tree sheds its leaves

They tumble away,
away,
away……

In a watery grave
from an empty existence
at the edge of darkness
licks the flicker of flame

time only serves
as a constant reminder
you can not be forgotten
you will always remain

the work of a craftsman
stupid and hopeless

whispered commandments
words best left untold

they swore oaths to help
came and then spurned you

left you there drifting
with nothing to hold

and you drifted away,
away,
away…

Contrails

White Goddess,
I’ll meet you on the crystal plain

and fade with you
into the turquoise horizon…

She floated closer,
then vanished in the haze..

And now I watch the lightning strikes, reveal the hiding clouds

Ephemeral
like vapour trails

Perennial
the memories

and now I watch the lightning strikes, reveal the hiding clouds

Ephemeral
like vapour trails
