Dragons

Fire and ice

Melting the world

Conjuring an image

Of you –

Reflecting beauty 

 

Before we die

Capture my heart

Purse strings loosened

My gold

For your love

 

Snap out of it now

We are

The prisoners we caught

Halfway home

Half-away

 

Distance it covered

Wearing a mask

Sense it wandered

From us

To never return

 

Ice and fire

Breathing the flames

Flickering blue

-pain-

Of a lie

 

Snap out of it now

We are

The creators of death

Nowhere -now here-

Frozen beasts

“Don’t you just hate it when you analyze yourself

And find

You are a walking cliché

 

Just like everyone else

Not so special

After all”

 

He said it with a smug smile

And I wonder

What stereotype –

 

What mindless category

We fall in to

Tonight?

 

“Boldly we too shall

Pass through the same

Valley of dread

 

Throwing stones at our brothers,

Torture ourselves –

With our own minds creation”

 

As I make the claim

His eyebrows lift

And I return his smirk, where it belongs

Greener Grass

Stroll through the gates

Greener grass there

Meeting corners

Across

 

Fleeing winds of change

Glazed eyes closed

Sinful wearisome

Cheating

 

Fractured hearts bleed black

Staggered drunken pose

Hurting feverish

Chilled

 

Compose a letter goodbye

Signed within deceit

Lips sealed

Affixed

Mercy Me

Defensive posture 

Shoulders crossed

Shouting mercy

 

Flaming wings

Melting touch

Hidden sky

 

Headless wrath

Innocent eyes

Reality fading

 

Dreams shatter

Crying wounds

Shadow setting

Marvel

I sat down to marvel

At the world today,

It’s intricate wonder

And deceit

 

Mind boggles

At the way of us,

How we dance

And discover

 

Twitching toes

Filled with wanderlust,

Magnificent rays

Of sundown

 

I felt the hand of death

At my shoulder,

It whispered vexing

And vanished

 

Filled with hope –

Lungs collapse,

Here we are

Lost within each other

 

And I lay down

Marvel at the sky,

Forging dreams

I wonder
