Silver Darkness


disconnected

in real life

and real feelings

such gems

songs of reason

he wanted everyone

to care

opened up

and witnessed

the emptiness

do we need

the silver

exosed to light

polished ever brighter

in the dark

filled with

signs in

a glowing labyrinth

of total darkness

Corrosion


fine details

other stuff

the manifest

you said

life is what

could be

at risk

a bridge

more than

on the verge

of collapse

clear away

the corrosion

unchecked

it spreads

like cancer

shore it up

only words

define

our

lives


Crimson Beckoning


 Originally published 2010 pearljam.com

what they see
is the sheen
the scarlet
and black
some call me
beautiful
but i wonder
what solace lies
within the
black depths
i walk beside
there is no
beauty in this
world
only pain
and loss
scarlet
amber and sandalwood
console me
no more
crimson is my soul
heartbreak
my only
friend

moonlight beckons

its shimmering visage
haunts the eddies below
peaceful
comfort lies there
in the vortex
hidden in mist
so lovely
so easy
to slip away
ease my sorrows
nothing
and
no one
left to hold
my heart
moonlight beckons
crimson

Inside the Vault


answers
no time
stay
no, get out
step aside
there’s no room for you here
avoidance
waiting
inside a vault
what game is this
circling
is it safe yet
or will
lightening strike
as i cry out
in the
blackness

Suicidal Tendencies


held captive
harmed innocence
i wish for
one night
willing to try
celebrate life
rather
than death
a test
all other
possibilities
exhausted
invading forces
or worse
never shaken
the silence appeared
a rationalization
not my own
