Lover’s Elegy

Whispering wind carries your voice
It calls to me so sweet
In the night I hear your melody
Singing out to me

I can smell you in my sleep
That old aroma so dear
And in my dreams there you are
Chasing away my darkest fears

Dance with me once more
Under the moonlight rain
Hold me in your strong arms
Never let me go again

I thought when I was alone
I heard your laughter in my ear
But when I turned around
There was no one near

Why must your spirit haunt me so
Your memory won’t leave me alone
And I know that when I wake
To your grave a rose I’ll take

I wish you could dance with me once more
Under the weeping moonlight rain
Hold me close in your strong arms
And I’ll never let you go again


Angel’s Song

Am I not lovely?

Do my wings not fill you with awe?

Dance with me in the moonlight

Sing the silver song of purest bells

And revel in the glory of the creator

We are the Muses

The laughter and tears

We are the keeper of children

The guide for the dead

And friend to all things living

You tell of us in your tales

Dream of us at night

Yet doubt our existence with your science

Who is to say that you are correct?

Why should we be unreal?

Is not all this but a dream?

Prove to me your worth

Reveal your true self

And I will judge your right to Heaven

Welcome to my Insanity

My mind is a chaos galaxy
The stretch is long
And filled of songs
And the sense is spread far too thin

My rhythm is strange
Off beat but in tune
And don’t ask me for rhymes
Their structure is lost

The wilds of my brain house many beasts
Rare and wondrous and more than a bit strange
But they’re natures lost in my distractions
Not sure if they’re hostile or tame

Mathematics are a hopeless endeavour
Full of fool’s physics and concave equations
Logic of course is at a whim
Spiders flee from the weight of their webs

To find the door out you must go further in
But none can withstand the maze
Many men lost their minds in my foggy haze
Lost by the rabbit trail thoughts and insane ponderations

Stars find a light to make in this place
But like in a black hole they cannot escape
Rather staying in this comfort of mine
Keeping me forever awake

Brave soul, welcome to my insanity
I wish you the best of luck as you try to leave

Before Sleep

I feel my heartbeat beneath my chest
A steady rhythm that lulls my mind
An organized chaos of music for only I to hear
It soothes my very soul

My thoughts whirl throughout my head
Lost and wandering within me
They tell me stories and build my fears
Multiplying themselves eternally

Breath in easy paces around my lungs
A soft rush of air that swirls before me
What storms does it create within
Or for the dust motes without?

Still I lay beneath the covers seeking warmth
Feet wrapped in a quilt and arm under the pillow
Attempting comfort on a cold night
A cat lays at my side

Calm rises over me like the tide
Moving slowly without notice
Until my eyes settle and breath slows
And my mind finds peace in dreams

Warn me Before I Need to Gouge my Eyes Out

I think books need a rating system like movies. I have a kobo e-reader and, while I love it, it’s quite a pain for me when I try looking for new books to read with no way to filter out the ones with content I would really rather not scar my mind with. At the very least, books should have little warnings on the back or inside cover saying what sort of inappropriate content can be expected. Continue reading
