Raven Black

flowers etched in glass
their bloom immortalized,
their frangrance a frozen promise
never tested hence never broken....

flowers etched in glass
their couplets monogamous prophets
suspended in impotent fidelity
never lured hence never wavered

flowers etched in glass
paragons of worth
my reflection amidst them
human, tarnished, raven black

Candles

i dreamt of candles
shimmering, dainty, romantic
....candles
all aglow lighting my path
melting away longingly
velvet ivory wax
licking the soft soles of my feet
...u came home to me
with diamonds and roses.

i dreamt of candles
ablaze, threating, ominous
....candles
all licking hungrily at my clothes
wanting to consume me
make me one with them
a charred cinder
.....u told me of her
with acerbic finality

Fields Of Stone....

there were feilds of carnations here once
pink, orange, gold buds
bobbing prettily in the cool breeze
there were birds of vibrant hues
chirping songs of sweet lithe melodies..
now, there are no carnation heads
just grey jagged unnamed stones
no birds, no songs, just laments
and distant booms of terror and bombs
no hand left to lovingly carve
names or epitaphs upon dead stone
no names even conceived yet
for those birthed to be doomed
no seperate graves to mourne those
who breathed longer than their wombs
O Humanity there is no way to grieve
befitting a holocaust this cruel
O Murderers of the human soul
at least these martyrs
in the earth are cloaked

Standing tall

and we shall stand tall
and we shall stare you down
and you shall be enthralled
by our courage
our wisdom, our all
we shall rise from the ashes
like the phoenix grand
and you shall witness with awe
the glory when we shall stand
shoulder to stauch shoulder
like a turret against your froth
your backs shall shiver with the cold
whilst we advance, silently bold
you will want to run
you will want to cower
you will hunt for swords
for the courage to stumble forth
for the grit to match our form
and..
you shall find none

Beauty Beholden

tonight..
i've been ambushed!
by your memories

this tired body had not heart
to do battle after dark
and while i lay battered
nursing aching wants
in mists of warm waters
You came upon me
at once my paramour
and my enemy

my mind jarred
my heart forgot
to beat
in rythm with
tired monotony....
and i heard you whisper my name
and your lips sung the same
