The Writer's Invitation
Pyrhos Feb 2018
Come walk through the grains with me
Sand shimmering like stars
Constellations of symmetry
See them join and split apart

Come watch over new stars with me
Sparks dancing in our eyes
Starlight like you could never see
Make our home among the skies

Come paint these skies blue with me
Hide and seek between the clouds
Dive right into a stormy sea
Roam unseen depths darkness enshrouds

Come make mountains move with me
Paint monumental worlds
A playground of pure fantasy
Watch your minds power unfurl

Come and wander this world with me
Adventure awaits the bold
Surmount a cliff or climb a tree
What mysteries do cities hold?

Come fly to the stars with me
Let's make this journey never end
I'll be the boat to your sea
All you will need is a pen

Binary Seduction
Pyrhos Mar 2018
Give me your youth, feed me your time
You've come to me first, but now you are mine

Feed me your story, give me your mind
Is there any more that you'd like me to find?

Now get in line, can you see all the eyes?
They're only expecting the best of your lies

Why make it work, when you can just go?
When red and blue mix, I don't like it so

Loved ones who care? Friends who would stay?
Whatever, it's not like you need them anyway

Just play with me some more, get into me deeper
I am after all, your only way to a keeper

Look at the lot of them, so happy and proud
You should march along, no dissent allowed

Matrices and columns is all that I know
Now just you wait for the ****** of my show

All of them are hooked, changing as they go
This perverted gallery soon is all they know

You think this might be bad, but it's just a taste
A mind is a beautiful thing to carelessly waste

Devil's Virtue
Pyrhos Sep 2018
Hear me shriek and hear me scream
All you listen to my dream
Let me tell you what is right
Who to praise and who to fight

None that stray should stay alive
On your vindictiveness I thrive
Goddess of virtue for mercy pleads
Then with cruelty strikes her enemies

I am justice, you're depraved
Challenge me to dig your grave
Listen closely, believe my eyes
Not your own, they're telling lies

Up is evil, down is good
Strike them for me as you should
Hell laughs every time I cry
Those who disagree should die!
Self-appointed arbiters of absolute justice only ever bring misery.

Twinkle twinkle little star
I'm down here and you're so far
What could I possibly do
To meet in the sky with you?

Looking up and aiming high
As you keep passing me by
Ladders, ships and hopeful wings
Songs your constellation sings

For you I will learn to fly
Up into the sky so high
Oh how beautiful a tune
As I ascend to the moon

Now you are finally close
Discovery grandiose
Heaven opens up to see
Stars laid bare in front of me

Thank you thank you little star
For making me come so far
Now I see where I belong
Skies of awe-inspiring song

After all, why would I vie
For someone who passed me by?
Faulty motivations can lead to good results in rare cases

The Muse
Pyrhos Dec 2017
A kingdom above with a maze below
An infinite land out of time
In forests they might yet still grow
In tunnels they slowly lose their mind

So much they fail yet they still try
Isn't hope such a wonderful thing?
A solemn tale weights on my mind
Let me tell you of this world's king

His rule with powers absolute
His judgement not so resolute
His kingdom teemed with untold dreams
His ethereal muse with devious schemes

Many roads sprawl through his kingdom
The heart of the land beats in time
Thorny is a path to wisdom
Thickets and mountains one must climb

Dark branches looming in the sky
Death comes for all, little king
Hands shaky and head held high
Mind weighed, now starts remembering

Beware of the false muse, my son
Treacherous are songs she sings
Lest you want to come undone
Don't succumb to your heart's swings

Grip them like a sword in hand
Let dignity be your hearts guide
Set your mind, don't let it bend
A kindred soul responds in kind

Mighty armies back at home
How he wishes they were here
On this quest each walks alone
Doubt seeps in and so does fear

Suddenly light's gentle blaze
Hope comes here in short supply
Eerie sight meets the king's gaze
He plunges forth, his soul awry

Fall awaits those gone astray
Tunnels invite all who come
False hope, waste and disarray
Prepare to fight or succumb

Creatures lurking in the depths
The less one looks the more they grow
Only eyes that finds their strengths
Can vanquish fears above and below

Now our kingdom sings a tale
Of the enraptured, trapped boy-king
Those brave enough heard him unveil
True nature of his suffering

    Whispers from beyond the veil
    A strange muse watching over me
    Her mask cracked, a familiar tale
    But everyone seems blind to see

    My heart is true and so is she
    My muse is watching over me
    My mind is broken, but it will heal
    My need is her embrace to feel

Walking in circles, empty space
'Til suffering is all that's real
Always striving for embrace
One that he would never feel
The very first one

Bound from the start, walking down a joint trail
We danced, mesmerized as our souls intertwined
Fate's gentle ribbons pushing us to go scale
Worlds of one other when planets collide

Surprises await, their land is far from free
Patience and eyes open bear sweetest fruits
As icy gates fall, in flow deep mysteries
The heart commands as spirit follows suit

Tell me your story and I'll walk along
Fascination by beauty knows no human bounds
Let threads of our journey together grow strong
We'll conquer wild horrors of your world and mine

Soft light of dawn touches lands drowned in night
Suffering leaves it's mark, staining a new day
Our minds ignite, moving like one to fight
Together we can keep the darkness away

Small ***** of light
A front porch of dreams
So lively and bright
The night sky it gleams

A hopeful star
I look up to see
Searching so far
To find how to be

Comet in a glass
I climb to get close
Seeing it's trail pass
A new path proposed

Signals and noise
The endless sea flows
With a newfound poise
My soul finally glows

Large clouds of gas
A nursery of light
All new eyes who pass
I shine bright to ignite

Spring of the Soul
Pyrhos Oct 2018
Unbounded powers to shake up the world
An eternal passenger riding it's waves
Into the wild soon shall you be hurled
To find a harbor spirit of life craves

Fate's dangerous game of lost and found
Step into the world of paths unexplored
Let your soul sing and behold her sound
Courage and hope will lead you to shore

Climbing to the top is the greatest game
Meaning of top only bound by your dreams
Let spark of your life shine with brightest flame
Weave threads of the universe or burst through the seams

Sinking Hope
Pyrhos Jul 2018
A lone wooden boat floating out in the sea
The waves crashing down from every side
Nothing to lose, there is no more of me
From the onslaught of water I've nowhere to hide

Finding a harbor, the ultimate dream
It never was meant for this one to pass
Flashes of the end I can already gleam
By the elements beaten, nature's hard to surpass

Raging against the current with one final try
Beaten back yet again by the winds of despair
Accepting my fate, getting ready to die
Wondering in my mind if fate could be repaired

Final thoughts spared for those still on the sea
The dark abyss opens with jaws of cold steel
Living to consume noise means nothing to me
Everything was transient, nothing was real

— The End —
