On a Rainy Day

In the window

In the window

I saw the future fall to pieces

In the window glass turns to snow

And all I've ever felt

All I've ever known

All I was ever shown

Begins to go

In the window

I see a kite

A child's smile

After a fight

The roses bloom

For Ellis and Daisy

Alone in a room

And carelessly lazy

A painter at work

In an old garden shed

And millions of flowers

That once lived are dead

But the roses thrive

And all is alive inside

Too narrow to see

Too wide to be

Without breath, he left

And all that stood was me

In the window

All I see is all I know

The only light we feel

That floods in to make us grow

Is stolen from a memory

That took place long ago

And all we have is ashes

And ashes and ashes and ashes

Without fault and blame

In the game the rain plays

In the window

In the window

I saw the past mend itself...

Where the Wind Blows

Where the wind blows you will find me

where the wind goes you will find me

my hands fall in the stream 

in every single dream

but it's not as it seems where you find me

When the earth falls down you will find me

a queen in ivy crown you will find me

the mountains fade away

and nothing seems okay

but it's better if you stay where you'll find me

Where the songbirds fly you will find me

where the children cry you will find me

a mother trapped within

the comforts that you win

allotted to your kin where you find me

As the petals drop you will find me

as the times stop you will find me

waiting down below

a daughter to the snow

where the wind blows you will find me...

Wax and Wane

I heard my name

you called my name

it sounds the same

A wing of words

that flee from pain

they sound the same

The grass is green below my head

the angels sing overhead

I see the clock

I lie in bed

I play the game

I watch T.V. every night

it's just the same

I call the colour cream or white

it seems the same

I see the face upon the screen

it laughs at me, a friend of fiend 

it laughs at me, a sunken queen

a fist or fling for fame

She is the same

She plays the game

She knows my name

She is the same

She is the same

She is the same

But to life, she never came...

The Moor

When the wind called,

I understood and fell into a thorny wood

Where blood was kept 

from wandering eye and left for me

To sift and scry

The mystery, a puzzle set

Unveiled by lies and broken bets

Was left to rot among the moor

Was absent from my closet door

A letter sent, but who's it for?

A distant light from me to you

To light a blackened avenue

Where terror comes to set you free

And cast your body to the sea

Your blood washes on the shore

Absorbed by earth, I go once more

To understand your life before

The hollowed, deathly moor...

Untitled

You can pray for peace

the words will last

the words are pieced 

beyond the past

but clothed, this time

with bones and shoes

and thriving on the greys and blues

Nighttime marks its usual stars

in falcon's eye and sullen cars

but the answer lies, in otherwise 

a far more fatal tune...

Another Day...

There's no space for your fingertips

so let them run and rule

a cold and faithless tool

to the leader and his loyal fool

There's no space for your feet to walk

so let them graze the sun 

or crush down everyone 

for the battle's never, ever won

There's no space for your eyes to see

so let them turn to rust

the essence falls to dust

for a gale or breeze or startling gust

There's no space for your heart to give

so let it fade away

the exterior decays

so the inside lives another day

Hope

In our world today, hope is regarded as a positive source of inspiration and faith. When one has hope, one has trust (or something of that nature) in an unforeseen outcome, and in this sense they possess strength. However, some disagree with this notion. Hope can be seen as a thread to which we hold on to for dear life. It is a thread that can be cut or tied stronger, depending on circumstance and will. It is in this idea that hope is torturous and cruel. Hope rests in the wish for a particular outcome, which roots itself in the unknown. Because of this, we are left to hold on to a thread, which will weaken or hold strong, without the certainty of either. This is the duality of hope. 

"Shards"

Life was cascading twilight

in street-lit park benches

where dogs cease to fight

in feral shards of moonlight

where angels mourn a human's soul

and lose their gift of flight

It is sad to think of the dawn that follows

when all is exposed to sun

and bloody backs are turned towards everyone

Everything is daylight

Everything is seen

but the eyes are killed to bullet wounds

and all have lost their sight

Captive Beauty

We exist

We exist in

We exist in fragments

We live

We live for

We live for balance

In the heart of the night

is a reason to fight

for the end comes to kill

and does the murderer's will

each breath counts

each step we take

till time runs out

and you awake

The lions might

subject to fright

the rising sun

the rising kite

The breaking waves

have swept the clouds

The break in life

that breaks the crowds

We care

We care for

We care for no one

We have

We have become

We have become undone

The whispers

wish her sorrow

but the screams

wish her luck

as clocks decide the future

and the bells of fate are struck...
