                                                  your cry

                                       Silent tears
                                             as I cuddle
                                                           my baby

the willow never weeps alone

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

Red Light

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?

Categories: 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?

Rudimentary medicine Watson
That’s what I say
Cures the soul, the bones and
Somewhat more
Imbibe it
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

The Long Winter Night

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

Graveyard Girl

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

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...

The Edge of Night

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?

Night Of Awakening

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

A Kiss Goodnight, Soon To Be A Kiss Goodbye

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.

Murder at Night

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.

Last Night I Dreamt I Saw You

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.

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.

Night Of Memories

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.

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

‘neath piles of blankets
crying herself to sleep
she rocks ever so gently
in maternal arms
her loss too much to take
in shock she rocks so gently
in maternal arms
‘neath piles of blankets
crying herself to sleep

A night spent with

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
An understanding
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"
Your dead
You sleepy head.

And the peace of mind
Smothers your face. 
Leaving an indescribable urge
To find the perfect pillow

Children of the Day

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

across the table
sat with him
dressed in black
in the death of night

while his world slept
they waited there
refusing to slip quietly
in the hush of night

I Lost You That Day

I lost you that day 
when it was 

And drops 
of your face 

r o l l e d away.

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.

Her Soul

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.
