Symptoms of hope rise
From the ruins, a symbol
Of happier times.

The shimmering lake
And these carefree summer days
Have set me adrift.

The breeze wakes the day.
Light shivers leaves on the trees.
While Dark’s servants bask
In lingering pools of night,
Before her veil’s cast aside.

A seductive dance
Betwixt the heavens and earth;
The moon and the sun.

Moon Fall

Don’t tell me that the
Moon is shining while I’m still
Too busy crying.

Nemesis

Fading, failing,
Faltering footsteps. Evading
The moment of truth.

Eos

Your head turns around
I see the dawn of a smile,
Breaking through the clouds.

Black Heart, Storm Rising

Day 22 and a poem requesting sanctuary …

Made of sticks and stones

Give me some shelter
From this storm that is raging
Deep inside my heart.

Trembling

The gentlest caress
Of your body against mine
Leaves me trembling.

Kiss me on the lips,
I’ll hold you in my arms
‘til the night has calmed.
