Infernal

Conflagration;
Of all roads
It is the destination.
And this city
Burns at the heart
Of me.

Rebel Soul

Rebel soul
Inside my mind
Betwixt and between
The heartbeats of my reality.

A causality,
The tighter they pull at the strings
That define the straitjacket
Of this conventionality
The more the rebel soul
Struggles.

Until like the phoenix
The rebel burns
Through,
The petty strictures of society
Burn away in the heat of the flames
Become ash.

Just ash,
That blows away
At the slightest breath of wind
Into nothingness.
Leaving only the rebel soul
And it’s humanity.

Infinity

 

Entwined,
Skin to skin.
No ending or beginning
This endless state we’re in.

The Waning

Fitful winds
Whip about us
As we sit at this lonely spot.
This silence
Will define us,
Lasting image of latter days.

This Rain

This rain
Seems permanent
The way it is clinging to me,
Like sin.

As guilty
As drab Sundays
In a Suburban town,
When the weekend
Has run out of time.
And though you’d prayed
In your dirty subterranean soul
That Monday would never come,
It looms like storm clouds over you.

And this rain
Is hanging on,
Soaking me through.
Tell-tale mark
Like the blood and gut stain
Of the week to come.

Salt in the Wound

Tears rolling
Out of control,
Down to earth
Drowning us both.

If I could take back words
I would take back the hurts,
Chase away the tears.
Wipe away the fears

Say goodbye to it
And stop the crying.
Start your healing now.
Make you feel – new.

Helter Skelter

A sudden moment,
This restless heart twists
Blown by emotion.
We begin again

This lover’s leap,
Over and over
This restless sleep.
I dream of you again.
