A brief fairytale of ice, love, and immortality.

I’ll be your villain.

I’ll be the villain, your scapegoat fulfilling
The role you need, and for that I’ll bleed.
You stuck the knife in my chest,
Counted the seconds I had left,
And blame me for it all —
Blame me when you fall.

I’ll take the fall
So you can climb higher

I’ll be your villain
I’ll be the one you blame
I’ll be your villain
I’ll be the one you hate
If it’s what you need.

When Leaves Turn To Fire…

When the leaves turn to fire, I come enthralled by desire. Autumn is the season which births my passion. I writhe in the death throes of the year. Days shorten and cool. Nights carry the final brilliant climax of life on the air.

This is a season of fire. Whose flame do I see burning around me? I have your scent. I hunger. Howl to the moon with me and let go of restraint. Your blood is on my hands and I have your scent.

sticks

splinter and branch,
weaving sharp angles,
scatter and shatter
smooth and solid
sky.
twigs thin as a finger:
snap snap snap;
trunks thick as all:
unmovable…
immutable…
innumerable.
the roots are so deep
and remember soil,
old as life,
young as death.
a year is but a day:
spring morning,
summer day,
autumn evening,
winter night…
oh, mighty old one
reaching for the sky,
in the wind, creak and
squeak your tales to me.

November Grey

   Samhain is over and the latter half of Autumn is well in its chilled breath. In November, death has settled into the world and the ground is beginning to harden. The lights of December have not yet reached their prime. Snow taunts and teases and it spits flurries upon us, not yet ready to lay its blanket down. The brilliant, fiery leaves of Autumn’s entrance have all fallen, turning brown upon the earth. In this period, I will make desolate music, before life returns in the joyous celebrations of light that come wrapped around December.

 

This month is grey.

Haunted Shadows

   Songs are creeping up from within, through my veins, out of my skin, and soon to instruments, pens, paper, and eventually 1’s and 0’s. Abstracts and veiled concepts lurk behind my consciousness, waiting to manifest.

I Am Calling To You

A mindscape too abstract to form lies beneath;
but structured above is the crest of thought.
To the north, a land of ice.
To the south, a land of fire.
To the east, forests vast.
To the west, abyssous seas.
Here be a meadow.
In darkness, so pierces a light.
In light, so lays shadow.
At dusk we rise from the depths.

Like little black butterflies,
fluttering upward from nothing,
impulses swirl to the surface.

A world of greys
I see, beyond the spectrum.
Static from afar, the oscillations of a pulsar;
but upon its breast, the undulations of my waters
ebb and flux, from dissonant tones, a dark chord.
The note rings in your soul, beneath the depths
where little but the darkest desires dwell.
That shiver, quiver begets a sliver from
formless to formed, feeling to thought.
Move on impulse and push forward. I wait.

I am calling to you. Can you hear?
I am calling to you.

From Simple Freewrite To Work In Progress

A world of greys
I see, beyond the spectrum.
Static from afar, the oscillations of a pulsar;
but upon its breast, the undulations of my waters
ebb and flux, from dissonant tones, a dark chord.

A Brief Winter Night’s Moment – Stillness In Thought

Gently falling,
Shavings of crystalline perfection
Blanket the world
In true, frozen purity.
What breath could be seen
Is taken and held
At the most perfect
Of sights.
From between cracks
Of dense, thick cloud,
Shafts of pale blue
Moon pour. Show me this white,
Beautiful desolation.
This season, wherein life is least,
Emanates the most beauty.

My mind holds still;
Thoughts mute before
Sacred winter majesty.
In the distance, a bell
Chimes the hour
Behind pillars of smoke.
In these still, silent
Moments of cold,
I am wholly at peace.

Poetry Publishing Links

   I have been looking into publishing my own work this year. In my quest, I have stumbled upon some helpful and informative websites. I will share them with you here. As time goes on and I discover more, I will update this post. May they help you in the ways they do.
