King of the Underworld

Darkness darkness and silence bounds
There is a creature with a crown
I can not hear a single sound
I fall and weep to the ground.

here we are above
but only in our own minds
blind will never see

reality comes
fruit tastes different for all
arguments ensue

Second entry

Soul for Sale

Dancing with the devil is a dangerous game
If you get too close, you'll surely get burned by the flame
Stuck in this maze so long; all is lost, even your name
Spin the wheel if you dare but remember you have only yourself to blame

Dinner with Lucifer wasn't what I had in mind
Trickery is afoot; suckered before I knew it, a contract was signed
I never asked for this but there is no way out; how to break these ties that do bind
All I wanted was a second chance; please find the recorder and just hit rewind

haiku by me

Single piece of dust

Given enough time, becomes

Everything that surrounds

Time ever passing,

A hundred years soon becomes,

but a wisp of smoke

poetry by me.... (coven)

Echoes of memories destined for recall
The lights are still flashing gripping on the walls
Burdened by these nightmares to long to remember
Twisting and turning The wheels don't consider
the agony that these memories deliver.

You were woven, a cosmic thread,

to think up thoughts inside your head,

with brush in hand you write them down, to show them to the nearest town,

with pomp and wit they clasp and grin, "well write some more my fellow friend!"

it is with this, a light request, they'll sell your sweat, they'll sell your stress.

Thirth years of ware & tare,
still not gonna' cut my hair,
went to hell & back on a dare,
removing lies layer by layer,
got stories even I can't bare,
passed the test with time to spare,
may seem as if I haven't a care,
take my hand. I have lots to share.

A grain of sand said to the drop of oil-
"Why do you burden me so?
You have brought harm to my lands,
Death a destruction to my hands
Nothing but strife and hatred and toil."
The drop of oil responded, as it said with a grin,
"In the end, my friend, we BOTH shall win,
For these silly wars will bring quiet once again to our soil!"

A Being So Free

I envision a god, sitting Indian pose and as each teardrop fell, a new soul arose.
Kindness, compassion, encompassed the whole.
And when a teardrop would split, emerged a twin soul.
Gentle and sweet, with eyes like the sun and when they could touch, a soul they were one.
The heart would expand and the spirit would fly, with no limitations, the stars nor the sky.
Heaven emerged, to show all its treasure and neither could talk, no word said the pleasure.
A love filled them up, and angels rang bells.
For when they had found each other, they had found themselves.

Good night all :-)

that first bite, to the core.
juice pours down my neck.
going for another bite,
blindly, I snatch another apple from the tree.
skin to the air, I panic.
the forbidden fruit, I repent.
Serpent smerks, I cry.
and reach for another apple.

It's been waiting a long time.
Since light first flickered.
Aging like a fine wine.
In our last breath.

So close to us as we drift nearer
It watches with carefull sight
I doubt that nothing would hold us more dearer
Within the last seconds of our dimming light.

sitting here at Clam Beach, lonley as the California sun sets.
people all around, but not me. I sit alone with the wind
blowing the fog in like waves. already feel the quiet night,
like sand through my toes, and cold evening air through
my hair. nothing to see when there's no one to share it with.
lonley as the setting sun, I stare in silence.
damp cold air upon my face wakes me from this dream.

There is no continent that is fully content
With all it has accomplished throughout the years
Heavy the price as now is the time of tears.
With everything we’ve said and cannot take back.
Paid for by blood in the ruddy tank tracks.

Nocture Awakening

I saw my love shining
like a becon in the night...
While clouds, like hands held the moon.
She wispered softly as the waves
churning to the shores...
And I abandoned my indifference to this world.

Fall grows near. The branches of the trees again will be bare. Harsh winds will blow their icy lonely howls. Blankets of snow will our vistas be. As we contemplate the loss, the sadness of a former seasons lost possibilities.

Have you seen the shadows of yesterday...
That hide in the darkness of man.

Errors untold , but known by all...
Of the likes that none can understand.

And cleverly crafted the shadow has become...
The light for every man...

Imagine a world with no war. A world with no hate nor hunger.
Imagine a world with no religion or politicians or deceit.
Imagine a world capable of zero point energy and skies are blue.
This i imagine, yes, I do.

It seems to be

It least it seems to me

That I am but a flea

Trying to cross the sea
