death, mother, night, tree,
within the parting of titian stained skies
a wisp of crimson elapses from sight
as a gossamery wind amplifies
lullabies falling limpid in hushed night
beneath the willow, i watch as it weeps
then cradle myself in its fragile limbs
'tis there that most forgotten memories seep
as the salty spray of loneliness brims
you reach out...a shadow in lambent light
i feel death's touch upon you through night's air
with wings wide open you take off in flight
unable to free me of this nightmare
this willow tree, though once my childhood crutch
tucks me in its folds, like a mother's touch

death, love, nature, ocean, passion, me,
If the waves clutched for my feet once more
And invited me to drift
Would you pull me back from ocean's shore
Or let my spirit lift;
Would you wade into the waters deep
And hold my frozen life
Or discontent with ocean's tide
Let be with saddening strife.
If moonlight was our only cover
And her reflection beckoned me-
Would you swim a naked body
And sing our souls as "Free"
If ensconced in nature's grasping hands,
Whether waves or Freedom's play
Will you follow me, but nature's pet,
And embrace the dying day?

have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
lonely as ever
visible at night, useless by day?
in sync with its partner next door
for a quick kiss over a few flashes only
then arguing again and again
night in, night out.
have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
not signaling a warning to keep away
but sending a call for compassion?
using the dark pauses in between
to yell the same name
over and over and over
into the emptiness of each night.
have you ever felt like
the flashing red light on the roof,
being your silent cry
only heard by your eternal love?

Rudimentary medicine Watson
That’s what I say
Cures the soul, the bones and
For maximum resolutions
Whatever ails you
This swagger shall bring
Spirits to the soul
Yearning to the heart
A dance in your toes
If it won’t cure the sadness
No one but you shall know
Rumedicine my dear
No matter the cure soken
Your fears shall be less than smoken
For in the haze of the rumedicnes effect
You shall not have time at all to reflect
The final cure upon the weary suffering heart
Note: Dedicated to the inventor of a new word, or two!
The long Winter night is indeed long
For the raven in swift motion
For now has gone
As moonlit fields lie in bitter freeze
The Long Night Moon of shadowed intent
Climbs between the frigid trees
For the raging winds of memories lost
Pushing snow drifts from mountain tops
Lies upon our souls a bitter frost
And death now our only thought
anxiety, autumn, beauty, child, death, mystery, night,
There's a girl in the graveyard that never seems to leave.
She hangs like dust in the autumn air.
She has beautiful flowers and tangles in her hair.
When it seems she's right there, she's nowhere.
Cursed be the night... O' bloody night...
Thy face is cold and dead...
Thy eyes are of blackness, and thy cape wicked....
And the world is thy bed...
Thou sleepest during the day and cause death
in the dark...
The fire that consumed her was caused by thy breath...
Within it, a single spark...
So I curse thee, o' dreadful night...
I curse thee til the mornings' sweet light...
death, family, girlfriend-boyfriend, happiness, life, loss, passion, people, sad
I fear the night
Never to wake in mornings light
To see your face one last time
To hear your voice that is so divine
Reaching out to touch your hand
You entwine our fingers and understand
With love as strong as ours, it's hard to say goodbye
We wipe a tear from each others eye
Slipping into the endless dark
An adventure I must embark
Waking in mornings light
Knowing it was just a dream, everything is alright
Forever together we will be
Forever and Ever, you and me
The screech of claws scratching against my window,
The flickering beams of flashlights reflect into my haunted eyes,
The shivers creep down my spine with feeling of endless fear,
The sound of footsteps in darkness; so cold at night,
The hours become continuous as I begin to panic,
The eery surroundings find its target,
The blood poors heavily as I watch suffering pain,
The stains of deaths medallion forever lays;
upon the victims pillow.
death, farewell, good night, lost love, sad, sad love, spiritual,
I'll kiss you as you sleep,
But secretly I shall also weep,
For it seems you are now away from me,
Wandering about with my parallel self,
In the sweet world of dreams.
I'll kiss you as you die,
But secretly, away from others, I shall also cry,
For then it would seem you are going away from me,
Wandering about with the Lord for all eternity,
In the sweet world of higher being.
death, good night, night, psychological, universe,
Such close relationship with death we keep,
As we embrace the nothingness of sleep.
Not careful enough for a fall so steep -
One moment awake, the next fast asleep.
A Goddess of forgotten time therein,
Who donned a crown of stars upon her head,
Constellations engraved on midnight skin,
The land of sleep, the land of halfway dead.
While some embrace the empress we call night
The mass extinguisher of any light,
Unhappy beings relish in their plight
Until the deep abyss swallows their fight.
Does this unexplored boundary exist
If this pull none remember nor resist?
angst, daughter, death, father
Last night I dreamt I saw you standing
in a field of blue wild flowers,
it's been decades since I've seen you,
but it only felt like hours.
You were smiling at me,
that crooked smile I love,
I tried to move toward you, but
my feet were stuck in mud.
I was rooted to the spot,
on the border of that field
and, though I longed to reach you,
the earth refused to yield.
Frustrated and panicking I
looked down at my feet,
and then you were gone and...
I guess I was asleep.

Mama and them, took us aside
When we cried
She wiped our eyes
She grandma and Auntie
Bathed and feed us
Took us to church learnt us bout' JESUS
And when it was time for bed
We kids would put on pyjamas and them night shoes
We won't need in glory
On them heavenly golden grounds
Worn in the daylight
Shines in steps of grace
When grandpa died grandma said he paid his dues
Ole granny told the mortician, sir, please dress him in them old

daughter, death, loss, love, night, night,
You met a girl, but made her a mother.
You have problems of your own how can you take care of another.
So your thoughts are racing, your feet are pacing.
It turns out you made a little girl
You could have had someone to make your world
But one night you took your own life.
That was two years ago and something still isn't right.
And every night I think what would life be like.
Asleep in my cabin as we crossed the ocean
Woke up with a start to a sound like big thunder
All around me now was just noisy commotion
An iceberg we’d hit that was tearing us asunder.
I have survivor’s guilt suffer nightmarish dreams
See widespread panic hear the sounds of loud screams
I would love to forget that night of memories
To do so would somehow dishonour the deceased.

death, dream, horse, night, peace, sweet,
I dreamt of you sweet dreams
Faceless tall and proud
Approaching on your horse
In the darkness of the night
Visions of your gracefulness
Enticing me to follow you
And promise my fidelity
From here on to eternity
I know not your title or your name
But I’ll recognize you from my dreams
As I wait for you returning in the night
I’ll call you Lady Death riding in the dark

death, faith, life, passion, night, day, night,
Children of the day
You walk on roads untold
Dangers lurking nearer
To grab you and take hold
You hide behind your light
And pray we wont come near
You walk in day with pride
But in the night you fear
You walk on edge of shadows
And hope we will not come
We see you walking there
And think you are quite dumb
We take you and disapear
Forever in our world
But we will join the light
Our darkness then unfurled
Children of the night
Our day will surly come
Our night with clash with day
The night we now come from
best friend, death of a friend, missing you, social, soulmate, vacation,
To my Best friend Bridget. She is still "the wind beneath my wings".
And through each hand
It travels its path
Leaving behind a glazed eye
And disoriented smile
That frees the soul
And the smokey room
Of unimportant jokes
Sets her mind in laughter.
And the next one To "Come on down"
Can be you.
If you could win the showcase
Ah,What a dream.
And a pop tart
Can very well
Hypnotize your mind.
"Bangity Bang Bang"
You sleepy head.
And the peace of mind
Smothers your face.
Leaving an indescribable urge
To find the perfect pillow
dark, death, night, silence, sleep, solitude, time,
Across the table
Sat with him
Dressed in black
In the death of night
Refusing to quietly slip
While his world slept
Each night they waited

fish, football, funeral, girl, golf, good night, goodbye,
I lost you that day
when it was
of your face
r o l l e d away.
abuse, conflict, death, depression, murder, mystery, night,
Walking alone in the dark
All is silent
Until theres a snap of a twig
Hands come from behind
Holding my neck
I try to scream
The hands grow tighter
I give up fighting
I take a final breath
He lays me in the bushes
My body cold and still
Noone knows who did it
They probly never will

it's not the sun that rises each morning
it's my mind setting into the light;
it's not the sun that sets each evening
it's her soul rising onto the night.

addiction, angel, art, grief, night, stars, universe,
Kathang-isip na mapagkunwari
Ginto'y sa dulo raw ng bahag-hari
Sa huling hininga bumabawi
Nasanay lang sa suwail na gawi.
Araw-araw sumasapit ang gabi
Mga tala'y lumayo sa tabi
Ang hangin lang ang madalas bumati
Tadhana'y sadyang mapaghiganti
Kung maari'y sayo ay lumagi
Giliw huwag na sanang tumanggi
Nawa ating kaluluwa'y mag-sapi
Sa daigdig nating mapang-api
Nagsidigmaan na ang mga lahi
Sa puso kong tinastas ang tahi
Sa'yo o sa leeg ba itatali?
Sakaling maitama ang mali.
- PM, 2018 (Filipino poem written in Tagalog)
funeral, people, sad, drug,
Your body men desire
It fills them full of fire
They want so much
To feel the touch
The gifts you have for hire.
You walk the streets so dark
Your future bleak and stark
You work for bugs
To buy the drugs
That really hit the mark.
Your pimp is a drug dealer
A professional money stealer
You feel the pain
Hooked on cocaine
He is your true fate-sealer.
You passing nobody to mourn
Thirty years since you were born
You only know your punter
Who really was your hunter
But it’s you the people scorn!
