Your Sign

Given your past

I don’t put it beyond you

To lie and cheat,

It is your trademark –

How you move on

To unsuspecting prey;

Tell them your sob-story

That rings pink and hollow now

As your soul

 

Fill your cup of love

Stir it with deceit

Sugar the promises –

And milk it for all you got.

Empty the cup

And throw it in the fireplace,

Let the shards melt

In your flaming,

Consuming hedonism 

In Remembrance

Will you remember me

When my time has come

And gone?

 

Windswept changes,

Ephemeral destiny,

We are

 

A lonesome cry

A flicker

That dies

 

Will you mourn my soul

When spirits escape

My eyes?

 

I ran through the fog

On borrowed time –

Never knowing my bearings

 

I stood alone,

We stood together,

It passed through my dreams

 

Will you remember me

Tomorrow,

Will you care?

 

I cared for you

Children of the Night

Felicity,

She wages war

Embraced in wind-chilled

Moments,

Fleeting pain

Meanders through the bloodstream

Leaks on her carpet

Stains the soul

 

Destiny,

She tattoos scars

Ripping nerves and

Slicing tendons,

Dead meat

Rotting in the flaming sun

Quenching her lust

Before it blooms

 

Nemesis,

She is true to herself

Wavering punishments

Exacting revenge,

Smiling at the sound of feeble

Voices –

Pleas of mercy

Where none exists
