songs of destiny, revealed

ringing out
in the silent corners of my soul:
a joyous cacophony of love
and pain.

mothers call
and fathers cry….
over a future turned inside out.

looking back
across the storm


we must not fear.


we must not fail.

we sail upon
their very tears…


we must not fail


we must not fear

let us,
together,
take our struggles
and our hate,
and our fear….

let us bond these pieces
with love’s joy.


let us make our fathers
and
our mothers proud,


let us, together,
put them to rest
in peace

we must not fear.

lost

Rumor
told me of your return.
I did not want to believe.

you knew that Fate had closed that door.
She has always been faithful
to me.

walking briskly through that cold night
you saw ghosts
and prayed for demons,
but only
felt your
emptiness.

my welcoming hearth,
closed
to you….

so you supped
alone.

this magic
this wonder
this touch of ethereal delight….
this
is the promise
lost to the cold of night.

but from the shadows
a roar comforts
these bones.
I am home,
wild and alone.

slow storm coming

two doves
swingin’
under the roiling steel
now fly to shelter.


leaves
rattle
and hum,
as the wind squeezes
in close
& tight,
seeking to escape
the thunder.

i won’t feel at home
until She engulfs me
with Her chaos.

the sky is afire,
you should go home.

here,
there be devils and
angels and more,
gliding
through orgies of selfish delight.

you should go home
now,
there will be no peace
tonight.

dandelion supernova

wandering alone through
these memories,
i see that you were never
here.

and in
truth,
i really don’t care.

a shallow moon rises,
flooding this soul
with new magic.

faith rumbles
deep within,
lost
between twin
echoes of doubt
&
age.
lost,
but not forgotten.

a deep sun rises,
scorching this skin
with an ancient wisdom.

I am ready now.

ready
to surrender,
and
drown my pain
in
Destiny’s sweet embrace
and
burst forth triumphant,
ascendant,
and
decadent.

no.

you ain’t ready for this.

Fire & Silver

in the corners
of this shadowy
union,
souls dream and
linger,
seeking the old magic.

inside this simple alchemy burns
a truth
more profound than
life,
and love.

looking
into this mystery,
secrets deep within are
unlocked and
released,
and the demons come out
to play.

and we dance together,
we happy little devils,
we dance
beneath the bonfire
of my soul.
