[ Stephen King inspired ] Departures and Arrivals

 
Time has a one track mind

and a schedule to keep
Regardless of who we are
it casts us aside like  
wedding rings, Timex watches
and other personal things
we insist we can't exist without
and demand to be buried with
 
yet still leave behind
 
Memories are the real treasures
we acquire and take with us  
measures of touch, sound, smell, taste
more often than not overlooked by those
consuming blurred moments framed in haste
in their coveting of some nebulous life altering event
looming ahead on the horizon  
 
blind to all that is

The Little World

"None of the answers of my pious preceptors would satisfy me, and my demands that they cease taking things for granted quite upset them. Close reasoning was something new in their little world of Semitic mythology." - H. P. Lovecraft  

Read to me the lesson  
and I'll memorise the words,  
sing to me the standard songs  
and I'll recall the tune...  

The stories told  
time and time again  
create a world  
as wholly and as magically  
 
as when the eternal hands crafted  
sea, and sky, and soil.  
The Book is a door  
and the Word is a candle  
 
lighting the dark room beyond.  
When I am close to Thee,  
then I am close to a place  
where light charges the bones.  
 
So read to me the lesson  
and I'll memorise the words,  
sing to me the standard songs  
and I'll recall the tune...

Take Courage in OZ ~

You have a brain
bespectacled girl.
You have a heart
as the tears flow.

You are on the road
even though
the yellow bricks
are all faded and
cracked

You are on the road.

Take courage
as the forest for the
trees
grow up and around,

Dark arms reaching,
menacing.

Its all they are,
menacing arms

Its all they ever are.

Take courage in the night
for the moon lights
your path.

The lions, tigers and bears
are friends

For who could resist your charms.
Oh my!

Who could indeed?
And if they did.
Well what kind of friend
would they ever truly
be.

Take courage  in Oz
for you walk the same land
as them.

Darkest Lily (a collaboration with the Lord of Darkness ~ HadesRising)

I spy you dancing in the moonlight
As you glow with fairy dust, divine
You beckon me as a woodland nymph
You tempt the beast within me, entwined

Lunar rays penetrate my smooth found glistening
As I've longed for your darkened seduction
Pheromones seep for your heated flesh
Stimulating my needy to vie with tension


The solace of the shadows
Will embrace you as well
And the dark of the night
Keeps the sunshine away

To walk with me, walk with the spirits
The forest will lament our dearest
Waltzes to my obsidian chamber
That beats for you deranged and fearless

Transfix to impale and flush out my anguish
Take me in your arms my powerful Lord
Lay me upon your six pointed alter
Answering my calls heard so forlorn


And betwixt the stars and moon
Our roadmap of scars and gloom
We will bathe naked, unashamed
In the unicorn's blood

The solace of the shadows
Will embrace you as well
And the dark of the night
Keeps the sunshine away

The solace of shadows
Please fill all my hollows
Will embrace you as well
When we share our hell
And the dark of the night
Inside your grip so tight
Keeps the sunshine away
While your hips thrust, I sway

you idolise me today but soon enough you'll grow tired of kneeling

 
i        
 
the empire of temptation        
defied gravity        
         
planets aligned        
strung by locks of burgundy        
asteroids plunged from her shoulders        
         
pleiades eyes  
shot like comets through defences        
the core of my force field agape  
holes spluttered butterflies      
spawned from cosmic clouds        
         
         
ii        
 
i lay beneath her        
transfixed by the depth of majesty
her galactic reign over night
         
i did not fall        
i did not grow weary till daybreak        
shielded by the blood of dawn        
we faded into light and dreamt of taurus        
         
gravity could not stop        
the empire of temptation

I’m going to write love

cold again

bad conversation
vomit in the sink
a long nap
a good slap on the cunt

so now you know who I are

you know I don't care at all
your hands always know where to press
down

those times i see you lose yourself
in the pure pain of it
you dribble no lies in my ear
you don't understand why i can't

i can't be more like you

Encapsulating Rain

Sometimes when it rains  
I can almost smell the scent of you    
Still on my skin    
I can feel the soil beneath my feet    
As my knees began to buckle    
Faint remnants of tingly lips    
-Post kiss    
   
I can remember the way you tasted    
I can recall that dead end path      
And how we held no hesitation    
-Just each other    
   
I let the water run down me      
My mind wanders to retrace    
Where your fingers once laced    
The pull of the past    
-Igniting    
-Inviting    
   
Skin on Skin    
We laid bare to the elements    
And wrote our first love's origin    
With our tongues and fingertips    
We signed the pages    
-Before the wear and tear of ages    
   
Like a silent film    
-For my eyes only    
Flashbacks retract to me    
Like an elastic band    
The slow, steady flow of curious hands
Roaming newfound foreign lands    
   
The thunder...    
The rain...    
The smell of your sweet sweat...    
The soil crumbling beneath us...    
The enticing invitation    
Of your muffled moans...    
The sounds of buttons and buckles    
-Hastily removed...    
The plunging of your pulsing body    
-Quenching our thirsting youth...    
The soft, warm velvet of your mouth    
-As you took me in...    
The rapid momentum of baited breaths...    
And that euphoric release    
Under the whistling trees...    
   
I let you enter me:    
My naïve heart    
My intoxicated mind    
My yearning body    
My youth    
My use    
   
Through a humid daze    
I revisit your embrace    
Even if only for a moment:    
I was yours    
And you were mine    
-And we knew the rain by name
