Halloween
 
 
agitated is the nighthalloween
stormed by a breed barbaric
 
ritual dance, wildly delirium
evil apparition in a bonfire light
 
bloodlust is the creed set on
hallowing saints of yore
seeking a sacrifice to bleed
 
Halloween night time to recede
indoors is safety this wicked night
till the moon gods slumber

Mischief Night
 
out of the darkness
once upon a midnight
from indigo void
appeared a light
 
out of the darkness
causing a fright
a haunting howl
a voice in the night
 
out of the darkness
my shoulder alight
branch-like fingers
my cells felt the blight
 
out of the darkness
 
out of the darkness
is this a wight
out to harm me
perhaps just a sprite
 
out of the darkness
prepared to take flight
a whisper of assurance
‘fear not, all is right’
 
out of the darkness
a figure in sight
recognition a friend
playing tricks on mischief night

Duality Flaw

deep within my id
darkest secrets that are hid
mysteries just as grim
others keep obscured within
is it the bane of all
answer the wicked call
into the pit of serpents
shall we fall if not repent

whence came this seeking
of such bleakness
I don’t recall
a choice to fall
wicked visited at midnight
upsetting a reverent plight
was I evil from the start
deception in my heart

conclusion I have made
we’re all as black as spades
equally pure as fallen snow
divergent paths to go
continual fight twixt the two
no repose until life’s thru
duple-powered creatures all
duality is our flaw

Death on Velvet Green

lying on
the velvet green
I dream
remembrance
of the gleam
your green eyes
lit with flames
how we danced
in a trance
licking at our lust
till hearts burst
with inundated love

lying on
the velvet green
I scream
memories fade
reality strikes
nightmare awakens
pain again
an icy blow
that struck my heart
loveless goodbye
took my breath
an internal death

Haunting Guilt

her image wanders the alleys of his mind
her memory lingers in a silent scream

when the moon is blue her vision haunts
a tormenting retribution to his soul

he calls out her name in anguish
there is no answer she is gone

he cries out remorse too late 
her ears no longer hears his apology

only her haunting memory remains 
no one to give absolution to his guilt

Caught In The Storm

I enjoyed you like a gentle rainfall
in the illusion of peach blossoms
heavens emitted the scent of passion
love’s profusion, electric sensations
I was swept into the soothing spray
an affectionate shower of deception

destruction struck in duplicity
guise manifested in a darkened sky
foreboding clouds and whipping winds
stark thunder of impending doom
abusively uprooted the sprouting tree
love’s roots had never been planted

danger lit the warning skies
there came a storm of furious rage
gentle rain now an angry downpour
shattered dreams, broken limbs
heeding too late the disaster warnings
caught in the midst of your abusive storm

Prison Walls

This is every young girl’s story who had to endure sexual abuse at the hands of a trusted man, be it her natural father, stepfather, or another trusted relative.

I watch the shadow of a man
confused, I do not make a sound
I look around to search for mama
she is no where to be found

does she hide-a-way deliberately
pretending everything is fine
that within these lovely walls
there exists no malefic crimeprison walls

stealthily he leans across my bed
his words are soft; his body hard
the innocence of a child is lost
body, mind and heart is scarred

there are no words ever spoken
concerning his malevolent deed
mama lowers eyes and covers ears
whenever I beg her to give heed

for many years I am his prize
until of age I could rebel
freeing myself from my tormentor
though still imprisoned in his hell

the memories are my torture
relived at night; my prison wall
silent sobs plead for freedom
to raise my eyes and stand up tall

Damnation

visited the old house today
long neglected but won’t go away
once lovely rose garden hiding crimes
a haunting forest of tangled thorns abandoned
in all this time the ivy vine entwines
like a new owner on a rampage
trying to conceal the ghostly screams

the empty walls have no muffling
still whispers mock with dirty secrets
reminders of scars clawed upon my soul
so many skeletons these walls hold
closets filled with evil laughter
we tried so hard to hide
the terror buried deep inside

till these walls have died
every brick and mortar crumbled
secrets rise at midnight
with a mighty rumble
to dance an evil celebration
of the soul’s damnation

Rage of Confusion

thoughts ablaze with rage
encircles me in battle
screaming for the clarity
you treacherously withhold

muddied messages befuddle
unspoken promises raise questions
vulnerable without answers
floundering in mixed emotions

frightening voices whisper doubt
in the alley of my mind
fear runs rampant
disorder in my thoughts

words with double meanings
trace no clear-cut definition
swirling whirlpool of confliction
trapped in a rage of confusion

A Demon’s Mirth

 

Invisible fingers holding downdemon mirth
wet sensation losing ground
is this a dream is this real
tangible intangible ethereal
sucking out vacuum deep
bleeding passion body weeps
fills the chamber expanding wide
exciting flesh deep inside
explosive eruption heaven and earth
perfected pleasure a demon’s mirth
