Darkness doused in mystery
A fantastical relapse
Of reality

As horsemen ride
And Samhain feasts
Hades shall rise
In reverence to the beasts

The ghouls
The goblins
The bumps in the night

Our Hades
He guides us
Away from the light

A call from Valhalla
Clash of steel from Camelot
Wing stripped angels
Or decay and rot

Our Hades
He guides us
Where we dare not go

And yet always
We return
To see what he has to show

On Hades Threshold

Darkness falls
as the bard sings
of vengeance done
of fallen kings…
he scours the skies
of myth and legends
the earth of intriguing tales
gone and done
and sing them for his own
old tales in newness told

Hades he Rises
with tales of vengeance
from the old books
and older scripts
transforming words
by prophets and mystics
to one known by all

Darkness eternal
his forte in words
spilling his ink
on empty canvas
drawing lines across
names of gods and goddesses
of pale horsemen
thundering towards
the last frontier
the lost ending

words said written sang
tales retold recalled
Hades Rising said it all
a true dark wordsmith
with stark humour
spinning webs
in dark tapestry

He will ride on
to tell epics
mayhaps to be sung
by those who ride
after.

I agree. No way can i roast a real poet..

Matter fact
as i read you
i feel like
i'm cumming

the humming of demons
cold coasting
closet case as myself.

you can be
the host of magic
literary havoc
breeding sensual tragic
across the screen

this is off the
top of my dome
but you sir
are ruling the throne

throwing us
puppies a bone
to roam
through your garden

i bow to you

beaten

He holds the leash of the three headed beast 
Born of the same bitch as I 
Stirring death o'er the silence of the ancients
As the dark hour draws nigh 

Seeking Homer's pen to unleash the fury again  
Si vis pacem, para bellum 
“If you want peace, prepare for the war.”
Words of Mars forged for him 

Carolina Tar-heel echoes in the dark peal
Crown given for who will stand and fight
Though the Furies scream and crimson rules
Eyes of the Gods don't let him take flight 

He embraces dark quarters and bloody waters 
Suckling the dead with no shame 
De fumo in flammam 
"Out of the smoke into the flame"

Black the ink of his quill dripping the undeads' will 
Son of Cronus who did dare flee and couldn't be eaten 
Unlocking truths of pagan lore 
So he scours Styx's shoals finding light amongst the beaten.
