Hollow feelings and death

I am feeling hollow
Surrounded by death
Though no one wants to hear my thoughts
They say I am selfish if I declare my pain
Feeling for strangers, that’s insane, they say
But I look on
Like from the ashes of the cadavers around me
I form a new life within my self
For them
For me
That’s how death can set people free
Like now, that doesn’t work
Perhaps soon it will
But now I am still
Cold and worn
I need the warm
I need life
No more death
Just let me be

Legend of the gargoyle

There was once an ancient legend in our land, that deemed that no heart should be broken by man, for if he did a spell be cast, that this wretched human to stone be cast, to exist as a gargoyle upon the walls of Snell, our beloved fortress we love so well.

It is said in the dead of night a fair young maiden received this plight, a young stranger came to our land and made a promise to this maiden’s hand, a ring he bestowed upon her finger but the little louse he did not linger.

But before the gates had time to open the spell was cast and his image broken, with a contorted grin and piercing eyes, claw like nails he’ll be despised.  A memory of a loveless night, revenge is sweet and it served him right.

Ode to domestic violence

Treason, my heart suffered treason

At your hand and your doings

When you hit me my heart broke

And on my tears I did choke a question why?

Why did you leave me this way?

A place where I dread to wake

A memory of violence for violence’s sake

That was your mistake

I need to go now

Away from you

I need to leave you

Your heart isn’t true

For if you loved me

You’d have kept me like a precious statue of glass

Your test you didn’t pass

I am going

At last

For some reason as I wrote this I had a nice, cool, reggae beat at the back of my mind, this had full intentions of being a song but for some reason I heard it in my mind as a reggae style, but I couldn’t improve it, I felt it would have been ruined if I made it any longer.

I am fading


My fading love

My fading dreams

How do I

Live without thee

I am lost

My heart

Is broke

I can’t see the future

I am blind

I can see

Only the misery

That you’ve left behind

What you’ve done to me

I am but a shell


My former self

I am a tragedy

Oh woe is me

O woe is me

O woe is me

Oh woe is this tragedy

My love is gone

I chant my sobs

Through the years

Can I be free?

Can someone free me?

I need you now

If you can

I need the light

I need a hand

I am falling

In misery

Drowning in



Hold my hand

Take me into the shining land

Make my heart find

Peace again

I need to be released and then

I can be

Full of life

This poem came to mind when I was listening to an instrumental piece by Brad Fiedel called “Spying” it came from my favorite movie soundtrack “Fright Night” the original movie.  The poem may not make too much sense in the style it is written, but I hope the words are profound.

The magic daffodil (poem)

A little ginger fairy, fluttering by quite weary, her eyes are heavy with tears

Curling up in a daffodil, she lays ever so still, crying away the pain of her years

Heartbroken she’s shudders, her morose heart flutters, drowning the flower in tears

When the daffodil spoke and said quite kindly, put the fellow behind thee my dear

The fairy fell asleep as those words were spoken, and like a spell her heart was no longer broken

Bright and awake the fairy leapt up, and flew away merrily

I sat and wondered about the flower and if it could do the same for me?
