fog grows heavy
on winter's breath
we loved in the bushels
of new fallen leaves
and our whispers were snippets
of warm summer breezes.
we're no longer dead,
never while we're together
feeding life into
once so vacant-
your brother hung himself
off the boat next to your house
and i downed my throat with sleeping pills
and made pretty red patterns
across my arms.
that was before we met,
when December was a wasteland
of death endeavors
but we gave this month a new name,
a new identity
that trembles with the "i love you's"
and the "remember when's"
our cheeks hollow from
warm slubby kisses
Oh, will you ever return to me,
My wild first force, will you return
When the old madness comes to
Blacken in me and to burn
Slow in my brain like a slow fire
In a blackened brazier - dull
like a smear of blood,
Humid and hot evil, slow-sweltering
up in a flood!
Oh, will you not come back, my fierce song?
Jubilant and exultant, triumphing over
the huge wrong
of that slow fire of madness that feeds
on me - the slow mad blood
thick with its hate and evil, sweltering
up in its flood!
Oh! will you not purge it from me -
my wild lost flame?
Come and restore me, save me from the
Of that huge eye that eats into my
Naked body constantly
And has no name,
Gazing upon me from the immense and
Cruel bareness of the sky
That leaves no mercy of concealment
That gives no promise of revealment
And that drives us on forever with its
Across a huge and houseless level of
a planetary vacancy
Oh, wild song and fury, fire and flame,
Lost magic of my youth return, defend
me from this shame!
And Oh! You golden vengeance of bright
Not cure but answer to earth's wrong
I take a sip of water,
Like the actor on the stage;
Immediately, I begin to write,
Starting halfway down the page.
I talk of the many faces
I have seen and I have loved,
I describe woods and valleys,
The sky and clouds above.
They belong only to me,
I own these memories outright;
The shifting sand beneath my feet,
And oh, the sweetness of the night
The click of a shutter (or is it my fingers?)
Awakens me from my dream,
I stand before them tall and proud,
Less afraid than I seem.
I saw the past yesterday,
The man I used to be,
Trapped in a suit, shirt and tie,
Waiting, hoping for liberty.
I bathe your eyes with my water,
Hand you a brush with which to write
About love, life, sex and death
And oh, the sweetness of the night.
You must do the same as I have done;
Revolution is the key.
We can all of us do without you -
Let go and you shall see
You will walk along the path
And stop to rest upon the seat,
Made ready for us both
For it is there that we shall meet.
You see, we were always the same person.
All we needed were tools with which to write
About secrets that travel fast
And, oh yes, the sweetness of the light.
a hollow ache
and empty gut
when a life invested
is laid bare
to the truth
and all that is you
a little off track
a little too soft
have been revealed
to drag every thought
pit of fear
fiber of your being
telling you to run
when there is
nowhere to turn
this feat of endurance
what is left
a body is hard pressed
for only so much
and something is lost
that cannot be regained
is hard pressed
its own torment
the sense of self
constructed so carefully
is exposed as temporal
will begin to crack
there is no irony
just abandoned ignorance
biology and chemistry
awareness of consciousness
cleansed to revive
a concave heart
convex in the mirrors
of a child's clown
playground of distortion
whisper my name
keep me in the frame
there's no way out
of this fixed full game
question her love
her guilt feeds my pain
never one to lose
why'd I ever enter
the labyrinth of lovers
hearts beating and folding
her on one end
me over the over
each step I smell her
her scent my guide
walls so high a secret
garden enclosed my soul.

"There was someone that I knew before
A heart from the past that I cannot forget
I let him take all my gold, and hurt me so bad
But now for you, I have nothing left of all my gold."
Bat For Lashes - All Your Gold
Its quiet and peaceful for now.
In the distance however,
holds a war of all.
A guardian watches alongside her sisters,
They see the world through the eyes of the creator.
As the sun gleam's upon the water,
A massive horde comes closer.
Valkyries are strong,
beautiful but deadly.
We fight together for the Light,
but the darkness can overwhelm thee.
Only one Valkyrie stands out,
above them all.
She is unique, wise, and tall.
Her blue eyes only see thy soul.
As this horde comes to the waves of white.
Valkyries spread their wings to take flight.
Now she knoweth the world and becomes,
The demon they fear, Kekay the Young.
Rising into the sky,
not fearing the dragons who surround.
She looks to her kill,
and stands...her ground.
Her wings turn black and her sovereign soul abides.
As she summons the Catalyst on the heights.
Tempest Suthrane as deadly and black.
The lightning kills off anything death.
The Valkyrie stands before her sisters now,
Who watch in terror of the darkness overwhelmed.
For now she is known as Kekay Suthrane,
The Valkyrie, The young, Dragon Rider today.
Know the war that takes place within her soul,
She knows not the worldly fall.
The end will draw near of the sisterhoods kin,
The blood will show the way,
To her next kill.
The Valkyrie of light and Darkness,
The Archaic one.
Shes the one you should fear,
For Tempest comes to her call.
You mustn't take the blame.
Don’t you ever feel ashamed.
I will never be the same.
Let me go, I never felt oh so cold.
I’ve never been so alone.
I cant see, so just take my hand and lead.
Why cant I love you.
I just miss you.
Why cant I sleep when your not next to me.
I just feel so restless.
I’m just so breathless.
You took my heart and fixed it.
Now you just ripped it.
I want you back.
It will never last.
You just took everything.
If you thought.
You were the everything.
Forever must I rest.
To you this was our last goodbye.
Now I'm forever crying.
I love you, but do you feel so much pain within.
I hope you love me too, for I am damned.
How could god forsake me, I’ve chosen the demon.
I’m planning my demise.
I’m sorry for my treason.
For what I did, the chains are binding.
Deaths grip is hurting me.
Don’t you DARE leave me!
You have loved.
You have punished.
You have killed.
All innocence left is corrupted.
Like a murky gas and its fumes.
Nothing is left.
Just the lust I still have for you.
For whatever I do.
Just know I still love you.
And that I still want you.
And that I will still die for you.
And still wait for you.
It will hurt when I love you.
And when I want you.
And when I die for you.
And it will hurt when I have to wait for you.
