Serial Killer…

bc9705548a71933634f070012a4ce6a1

Blood drips down,
The naked blade.
Yet with time,
The memories fade.

Soaked in red,
Echoes galore.
Incandescent rage,
Glories in gore.

Treachery and deceit,
Insanity weaves.
A pattern of violence,
Rewinds, repeats.

A prisoner of mind,
This creature of night.
Trolls the streets,
Killing the blight.

In its reason,
It’s justified.
Broken be the rules,
Or crowds petrified.

Yet with time,
The memories fade.
With every fresh kill,
The promise affirmed, made.

A merciless catalog,
This book of dead.
Deeds of the deranged
Chilly notes of dread.

A Dark Escape…

20125251534_darkness

Sweet Escape
Fill in the space
Between the dark and light
Between the dawn and night.

Sweeter taste
Of dreams so chaste
Flights of innocence
Purest in essence.

Sweetest sleep
Please let me keep
The promise of slumber
No chains to encumber.

“Wait for you, I do each night;
Take me in your arms, in sweetest delight.
Each moment I struggle, each minute I fight
Alas! Every time, it’s a dark, endless flight.
Wait for you, I do each night
A gaze bleary, a sunken sight.
Lie by my side, ease my plight.
Seep in my soul, make it right.”

Insomnia Revisited…

image

Sleepless night
Restless eyes
Dimmed sight
Soft deep sighs.

My eyes are half masted,
But the brain cannot shut down,
In twisted shadows, locked and gated
The murmurs of a ghost town.

Bloodstream soaked with chemicals,
Grey cells swimming in the soup,
Senses slow and dulls
Still thoughts stuck in a loop.

Here we are, again, my friend,
Together in this journey with no end.
No fences between us to keep or mend
My darling Insomnia, you top the trend.

Inner Storm…

storm

A maelstrom inside,
Buffeted on all sides,
By the violent currents,
In this body reside.

Churning ocean waves,
Lift and drown,
Slippery ground,
No foothold around.

Run and slide,
Down the steep slope,
Descend in the mire,
Emotions on fire!

Try I do,
To find the eye
Of the cyclone ,
Trapped in my mind.

A most turbulent night,
A hazy respite in sight,
New dawn I welcome,
Sweet promise of yet another night to come…

Musings In The Night…

dark-woods-forest-image

Oh feet so weary!
Pray for dusk to tarry!
 
Relax and renew,
Tired muscles and sinews.
 
In a soft, soft bed
All worries are shed.
 
Snooze on the sly,
Sing a sweet lullaby.
 
Sleep all night,
Wake up to light.
 
Dream landscapes,
All sizes and shapes.
 
Monsters and fairy,
Realms enchanting and dreary.
 
Or just the daily to-dos,
Revisit scenes and views.
 
In the embrace of deepest slumber,
Hear the voices of the lowest timbre.
 
Speaks the Soul a solemn vow,
To be with you forever and now.
 
Dawn skims the corners of night sky,
Darkness breathes one last sigh!

An Evensong…

The sun goes down,
The stars peep out,
Ocean waves get high,
The moon calls by.

The breeze cools down,
All mellow sounds now,
Twinkling lights crop up,
In the distance!

The birds fly away,
To their well-earned rest,
Crickets and cicadas,
Join in the fest.

Night flowers bloom,
Fade away the gloom,
The moths by candle-light,
Dance in soft delight.

“All the day beings,
Settle in their nests.
Ye tired feet,
It’s time for some rest!”

“Now come back home,
Lay down your concerns,
By the warmth of the hearth,
Tarry your tired bones.”

“In the coze of the dark,
Dream away the night.
In the arms of your beloved
Greet the dawn of the light!”

Dystopia…

The days are dark,
Rest seems so bright,
Exist do I,
Between the night and right!

A paradox it presents,
To me in perfect harmony,
Entire civilizations,
Time’s testimony!

Years gone by,
I search for light,
Temptations slither by,
Clouding my clear sight!

Reason knows not,
What heart understands,
No greater power,
In heavens or lands!

A hand exchangeth,
A blessing for life,
The mighty pause by,
Though the time flies!
