DeadwoodPale, twisted arms grasping for the sky.Ghastly shadows in the fog, swaying slightly.Creaking limbs hang leafless in the mist.Haunting physical memories of times long past.Foreboding figures standing guard.Images seen in a frightened dreamer's eye.The dead forests remain in their damp, cold grave.
Rose PoemBlood stained flower.How dare you proclaim yourself a symbol of love.Your horrific beauty rots and fades away.Is that to be the fate of love, to rot and fade?Or are you nothing more than a false prophet.
WonderlandHold my hand.Follow me.We will leave this land.Imagine the wonders we will see.We can roam.We can just be.With you I am always home.So close your eyes and count to three.Watch the fireflies glow.Just let yourself free.Then we can go.So open your eyes slowly.Lets travel away together.Open your heart and give me the key.I will protect it for you forever.Lets live our life magically.
Sonnet for the Weeping WillowBranches hang low.A breeze stirs the air.Green tear drops flow.A sight so fair.Quiet sorrows wept.All for past memories.Piled upon the branches they're kept.An enumerable amount of stories.One hundred years, one hundred waysThe pain of time soaked through.One million lonely days.From each pain a seed grew.Ending the long wait.Erasing pain, fear, and hate.
BrokenI'm going to take this pain and drown it in my memories.Hold it down watching as bubbles of the past rise to the surface.Shove it deeper and deeper down.Covering it with darkness and light.Wrapping it in joy and anger.Encasing it in a box at the very core of my soul.I'll lock it up and throw away the key.But the harder I try to hide it away.The larger it becomes.Flowing out of it's tiny box.Seeping through the seems.It taints.It consumes.It erodes and wears down the fortress walls meant to conceal it, contain it.Hair thin cracks appear on the surface.Then the force of an earthquake.I shatter.
FearFleeing, the darkness closes in.Eyes dart to and fro.A wail pierces the night.Ripping through all sense of security.
Day DreamingI dream with my eyes open.Fantastical reality is what I see.The magic of a butterfly glows from its flitting wings.Reflecting, refracting like light through a crystal prism.Moonlight whispers of hidden promises.Sun shine illuminates the truths.
PassingTime is stopped.A lifeless body dropped.Five days you cried.From the last day I sighed.My light has fled.Life blood bled.But cry never.For I love you forever.
