Godless
Winter Sparrow Sep 2020
And while he lives,
No matter the day, year, age.
No matter the time!

May his lips form a smile.
May his actions be cunning.
May his heart be filled with song.
And may his eyes be filled with determination.

But when that dreadful day arrives, should it ever.
When gods battle over a foolish man's godless soul.

Cast him to sea.

With a sword in hand, that for Valhalla.
A cross around my neck, that for heaven.
A Scarab on my heart, that for the Duat.
And two coins on his eyes, for the ferryman.

For if no god shall claim his soul,
Then Davy Jones will feast on his treasures!

Autumn Haunting
Winter Sparrow Mar 2020
At night, as the cool breeze starts to kick in.
At night, when only the moon lay above,
When only the leaves are there to bounce off sound,
When only my brain creates the storms we lack in this desert.

I think of Autumn.
That one Autumn that changed it all.
A strange occult sort of feeling.
A sort of divine period, a different worshiping.

The period, when autumn leaves were grey,
Skies were orange, and clouds were starry.
When I worshiped a Muse as a deity.
A period that haunts me at night till thus day.

Like a ghost, taunting me, haunting me.
She visits on most nights, sometimes in a different skin.
Like a chameleon, shifting from one to another.
Different looks, but the same sapphire eyes.

What torture is this? If it is at all torture?
Is this my judgement? My atonement for the wrong I did? If I did any wrong...
My mind lingers to find the hidden message.
To decipher the code that are those kisses at night.
My mind lingers, by my hands write.

In a swift Autumn breeze, out of grey leaves.
Slithers a severed snake from Medusa's head.
One of many to haunt me every night.
A different hiss, a familiar kiss.

The Spoils of war
Winter Sparrow Jan 2020
I am prey to eyes.
I am a victim of those gazing sapphires.
But now, I lay down my sword.
And I cover my eyes.

I am blind like justice.
And must drift back into the desert.
Water the Tulip I betrayed.
Find Ubar once more.

Attempt to fix what was broken.
Regain trust, strength.
**** the muse.
Put an end to soft romance.

Now comes the true battle.
No more tears left to shed.
No more demons to fight.
Now, there be only people.

To you, I am your love.
To them, I am the devil incarnate.
They do not trust me, with reason.
They do not respect me, thats unjust.

I am a man of honour.
And now, you have encountered your monster.
So, let me introduce you to him.
Bring it on.

Let the romance continue.
Let the healing begin.
Let the demons rise again.
Let the Cold war commence.

Winter is Here
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Yule tide brushes away autumns leaves.
Samhain has come to end.
The dead have returned home.
Now those sea has become too wild to sail.

It's time to get out of Limbo.
Barge out of the gates.
The battle was lost. Trust me I know.
But now, the war is about to begin.

It is in the time of silence that our own demons come out.
Let the anger and frustration fight those beasts within.
Let this torture not be for nothing.
It's time to shatter the frozen sea.

Raise the sails once more,
Pour a glass of whiskey.
Put on your finest clothes.
And ready your ****** weapons.

It's time to go to war with ourselves.
Winter is here, and we fight alone.
Those who follow will be welcome.
Those who stay behind will be missed.

But do not mistake my tears for weakness.
Do not mistake my silence for fear.
I may not be ready for what is to come.
But I know how to stand my ground.

Penance
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
The toughest battles we fight.
They be not on the battle field.
They be not at sea.
They lie in your head.

It's the voice of the girl you love.
The melody of the Siren you held.
The moan of last nights trial.
The echoes of screams illuminating from the soul.

This is the torture I must endure for being undeceive.
This is how I shall atone for my sins.
This is what I deserve for my failures.
This is my penance.

Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Memory is torture.
Hurting in the present while visiting the past.
Even dreams are torment.
Dreams if night and those we had.

Tulip of Ubar, let no one else pluck you out.
I am still rooted alongside you.
Unsure of what I want.
I am split in half.

I want the Tulip and Rose.
The Sparrow and the Robin.
I want it all.
But I also want none.

One belongs to another.
One belongs to no one.
And where do I belong?
Which way out of Limbo?

I see you both in my dreams.
One more prominent then the other.
One less seductive yet more emotional.
Yet...no rest. Just tension.

Odin had his ravens.
Thought and Memory.
I have mine aswell;
Torture and Torment.

A dream to kiss.
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
By the gods,
That have no mercy on our soul.
That have no control over my thoughts.
Last night, you visited me in my dream.

This be not the first,
This might not be the last.
Yet my reaction in this one,
Was more heathen then others.

You came up to me. Slowly and gently.
Caressed my hand, in the cold outside.
And I, under the moon ever so bright.
Pushed you and held you against a wooden wall.

You gazed into my eyes,
Those Sapphire eyes wondered what comes next.
What I never did before to you,
I did last night.

One hand holding your wrist raised up against the wall.
One hand clutching your waist, pulling you towards me.
And in a blink of a second.
I moved in for the kiss. A kiss of passion.

No time for you to react and push me away.
No time to think otherwise. Think of him...
This time. I had to do it. I wouldn't control it.
After all, you're in my dreams, my world.

I felt your lips again, as soft as wool.
As passionate as the wolves chasing the sun.
I lust for you, i crave you.
I want to conquer your physical world.

I have your heart, not your body.
I desire both. By the gods, I do.
Oh how I miss your sweet touch my goddess.
How I long for that kiss to strike me down.

I saw your face glowing the moon, after your hand left my neck.
I saw that look, that sweet seductive look.
You wanted more. I could give you more.

Rage is transferred to passion.
Love merged with lust.
I have no control over this.
Come take this passion...its you I'm dreaming of.

My heart beats louder then Thors hammer.
My kiss more ferocious then Zeus' anger.
My passion more fruitful then Dionysius wine fields.
My love for you is more beautiful then Baldurs persona.

RIP...UGH
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
They said it comes and goes in waves
But this wave has covered me
And im going under
And im caught up in the middle of it all.

They say that time heals and we will forget
But I keep finding reasons to talk to you.
If its not to check up on you.
Its to recall something that reminded me of you.

In another world.
I'd be shadowing his footsteps.
Holding you tighter then he ever will.
Making sure your love stays still.

Upside down, I'm walking in hi footsteps.
Upside down theres just your shadow.
Because now you're in my dreams.
And i can't seem to get up.

How can i forget those polished Sapphires?
How can I forget those contained wings?
How can I let go of the sculpted goddess?
How can I let go of the muse.

I'm stuck in Limbo.
You're up in heaven.
I'm happy when i dream of you.
Broken when I wake up alone.

Long conversations become deserted.
Warm hugs become cold nods.
You're not here, but I am.
You're gone, I'm still hoping.

If I fight, will you come?
You said you don't deserve me.
I deserve someone else.
But theres no acceptance.

I don't deserve this, this isnt fair.
But no one cares what's fair or not.
No one gets what they deserve.
So ill remain a shadow.

Till you miss me?
When you remember you said i love you.
When you remember all I can do.
Don't hide from me...come back.

Limbo
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
How are you?
I dont know.
What do you feel?
I...I am.

Where are you?
Im in Limbo.
Can you describe it?
Yes.

Theres a lot of wind, and I cant stay still.
A lot of wind but no waves in the water.
A lot of wind but the ships have no sails.
The skies have no stars, nor clouds.

The sun doesnt shine.
The moon doesnt glow.
The devil isnt home.
And Gods on vacation.

Theres a lot of wind. Hes a bully.
Hes pushing me around.
Confusing me. Showing me visions.
Created from dust. Easily dismembered.

Have you tried standing up to the wind?
Baby, i never sat down.
So how does he keep pushing you down?
There is no down or up, theres around, in Limbo.

Theres no music.
Only thinking is allowed as long as you dont show it.
No tears, no fear, no expression.
You have to just be.

Do you know when youll be out?
There are no doors, and no sails. No escape.
Dont worry youll be ok!
I know I will...I always am?
Dec 2019 · 211
Raid
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
The raiding has begun again.
This land is no longer fertile.
Its tainted and dry.
Too painful to stay in this place.

We raid with no compass.
No direction. Only the wind.
Let it fill my spirit with stallions.
Let it fill my anger with wolves.

Wherever we go, we know not where!
Wherever I go. I will shield myself.
However, should the wind drag me back.
Should you find me again.

Do not fool me once more.
I forgive, but forgiveness hands on a loose thread.
I do not forget; memories are feelings.
And I cannot forget how you made me feel.

It was better then any wine.
But cut deeper then any sword.
You wrote about me.
Now you have erased me.

The raider was raided.
The thief was robbed.
The archer was shot.
The trickster was tricked.
Dec 2019 · 148
Now
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Now
As the sun burns away.
Knives leave scars on the body.
Scars that your words dont show.
Yet now they are seen.

I am thorn between two.
One i know. One that was.
One i dont. One that wont.
Both painful.

A Robin from the past;
The Tulip of Ubar.
A Sparrow from the now;
The Sapphire Siren.

A clouded mind will keep you there, lost in thought.
You're there in my head. The both of you.
One forbidden, one forsaken.
Only path you will lead me to, is that of suffering.

Its time to sharpen the axe.
Beat the drum.
Call the executioner.
The time has come.
Dec 2019 · 161
Metaphor.
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Red skies cover the land.
Expanding, taking over the north and south.
Becoming a shadow of a land, uninhabitable.
Even the survivors have escaped.
Can the trees stand up again?
Can the rivers fill up again?
And if they do? How long till they disappear?
Dec 2019 · 141
Go
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Go
The feeling of ignorance.
The lust from attention.
It makes a man wonder.
How easy it is to be forgotten.

To be cast aside from a lover.
To be pushed away and led out.
By the same person who said,
I want to stay, don't go.

Where's the faith in that?
A goodbye can be temporary or forever.
But I don't believe in forever.
But I do believe in heart break.

Im here. You're not.
Im giving, you're not.
Im bleeding, you're stitching up.
Im hurting, you're healing.

Is it that easy to let someone go?
To let a memory go along with the wind.
To let a lover become the loved.
I understand it, finally.

If you must go, I must let you.
I cannot stop you from hurting me.
That is your decision.
And it looks like you did decide.

Super Moon
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Head throbbing,
From a week of emotional madness.
Morale borderline,
From a month of rejection.

Tonight, marks one week.
And all I wanted to do,
Was come over.
Even though it is way past midnight.

The mist was heavily drizzling on vehicles.
The streets empty. But the music was loud.
Out of the clouds, bare and brave.
Stood the crescent super moon.

Sitting on the city of the Dome.
It almost led me there. To you.
But, as time passes. You seem to grow distant.
It feels as though, I'm out and done.

I wanted to get wine,
So we drink till the moon lost its light.
Dance the night away intoxicated.
Tell you and show you hope beautiful the moon is.

Almost as you.
A brilliant luminating god.
Not as bright as your eyes.
A joy to gaze upon.

It seems that I haven't accepted faith yet.
But the pain soothes it.
Can you say hi?
Is it too much to ask? Or unfair to him?
Dec 2019 · 162
FIGHT.FIGHT.FIGHT
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
I still have it in me.
I still have the urge.
This rage I'm feeling.
Its me resisting to fight.

The gods know it.
The demons feel it.
The angels fear it.
I can't fight it.

The power to fight for you,
Would he greater then the Heathen Army itself.
But where's my chance?
Who can I fight?

The ravens scourge the battle field.
In search of the Goddess.
Trying to find that pretty sparrow.
Ears open to the sirens song.

But all they could find is a blinded Medusa.
Snakes can bite,
But she can turn no one to stone.
Medusa refuses to fight, unless its for you.

Dream
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
I saw you in my dream.
Last night you were there.
As clear as light.
As bright as day.

I can't believe it.
You drove to me.
You made sure I was ok.
Because I'm not.

You were there,
You smiled.
You missed me.
As a friend, as a lover.

And I do too.
I close my eyes and you're there.
I open them, i want you to be there.
What have I become?

Will you ever come to me?
Will i ever hold you again?
Will I stop dreaming of you?
Will I stop writing about you?

It pains me to know,
That you're in his arms.
This dream might fade away,
With you not even looking back at us...

My Darling
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
My darling, come back.
I'm your dearie!
You're my Sapphire!
Lets dance together.

Lets leave this behind.
And go into it together!
Lets fight the world.
You and I.

Walk on water.
Sink in sand.
Dance on tue moon.
Defy all odds.

As long as its us.
Me protecting you.
You holding me.
For the love of us.

Wear that gem, hold it close.
May it remind you of me.
As I can't get you out of my mind.
Bring me that flash of green.

Bring me those eyes.
Bring me your pulse.
Bring me your ideas.
Give yourself to me.

Memeories
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Hot Chocolate and Sweets.
A Tigers Eye and candles.
A sweet memory
Of heartbreak.

The last goodbye,
Brought no urges to end.
Not to I at least.
Not to you I hope.

I slithered around your neck like a serpent.
I adored it as if it was prey.
A vampires next meal.
My final taste of you.

Your lips are forbidden fruit.
But i climbed the tree.
I teased the apple.
But the forbidden fruit stayed untouched.

For a second i touched the apple.
For a second you almost fell.
I love your strength.
But I hate that I appreciate it.

Ill never forget that Eve.
The Eve of the Ghost.
The Ghost that could have been us.
But who am I?

A thief?
A madman?
A lost cause?
An embarrassment?
Dec 2019 · 158
Rage
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
I cannot cry.
The last tear was dry.
I disappointed myself with crying.
So ill leave it in.

Refrain from feeling sad.
Do not pity yourself for being in the storm.
Shield yourself, arm yourself.
Be the ******* storm.

Every tear i shed was a memory,
A golden memory.
But as i hold on to your memories,
I am shredded with anger.

I let myself down.
I betrayed myself and you.
I feared others seeing me as a monster.
When I have truly become one.

I shall not deny it.
But embrace it.
I apologise for my weakness.
I apologise for the romance.

I do not regret it.
I still wish for it.
I still love you.
And i cant get you out of my head.

But this rage,
Rage against my decisions.
My thoughts and actions.
I am weak and destructive.

Im the Thief of Hearts.
A Monster to Men.
A Rebel to Fathers.
But a treasure to you.
Dec 2019 · 133
Monday
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
I waited for you on Monday.
Waited for your call.
Waited for you to say.
I came back to you.

Who is this dreamer I became?
When did I lose grip of the darkness?
When did i stop seeing the truth?
Become blinded by love and passion.

My language has become poetry.
My mind a revolution.
My heart still in your hands.
My body beaten and bruised.

I've no port to go home to.
No nest to rest in. I walk among mortals.
The Sapphire Goddess?
She went back to Olympus.
Dec 2019 · 233
Y.o.u
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
Smiles turn to frowns.
Warm eyes turn cold.
Cozy hugs disappear.
Welcoming voices go silent.

You're gone.
And Im here.
Waiting.
Wishing.

Im the fool chasing the queen.
I want to be king. Your king.
But i cannot steal a kingdom,
Which you want to be part of.

But you...
You touched me.
You miss me,
You want me.

What's the point of chasing feathers?
**** the dreams.
Ignore the feelings
****** the soul.

Last Goodbye
Winter Sparrow Dec 2019
This was the prettiest I've ever seen you.
It was the most passionate we ever got.
The greatest hug you ever gave me.
The saddest goodbye I ever said.

Last Night broke me.
It broke me in so many ways.
And it might be some time,
Till I'm ok.

Your neck, your thighs, your lips.
It was that night you never want to forget.
Something I wish went on till today, tomorrow.
Why was it the end?

Last night was your last goodbye.
Your last kiss. Your last hug.
The last I love you.
The end of what we are.

I long for the day you come back.
That will be it.
I could kiss you.
I could say I love you again.

Love
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
What is love?
Love is dangerous.
It exposes all your weaknesses.
It kills you once its been meddled with.

To me, showing it...its a fear.
I don't want you to see me as weak.
But i want you to know how I feel.
I fear this...but I love this.

I love that you make me smile.
I love that you care about me.
I love that you compliment me.
I love that you're jealous.

I love your mind,
Heart,
Soul,
Body.

My darling Siren,
My wild Sparrow,
My sacred Sapphire.
I love you.

Sacred
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Your words are sacred.
My poetry about you; intimate.
The look we share, out of this world.
The passion, barbaric.

Let the Pirate sail away,
With the goddess that is you.
Let the sea be our bed.
Let the sky be our home.

Like thief in the night
You crept into my heart.
You stayed there. Home.
Thats where you belong.

How can i let you go?
After all we have been through.
It cant be for nothing.
Ive still got fight.

Don't cry baby.
Its alright.
Don't feel sad...
You know I'm yours.

Take me with all your might.
Let Aphrodite have Dionysius
Let the gods bear witness to all I have to offer.
All this lust...all this love.

Passion is on the rise.
Take me, with all your force.
You want me and I, you!
Let me make you smile!

Lets venture into this dark abyss together.
For its a cold winter.
And you my love, shouldn't be alone.
You deserve better. You deserve Dionysius.

Lets the doors of perception burst open.
Let me sweep you off your feet.
Treat you like a princess.
Take you to places.

I may not be wealthy, but am rich in heart.
Youll be my most precious gemstone,
Ill be your treasure.
Take me, take me in your arms.

Split
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
I'm split in two.
A part of me needs to leave you alone.
Needs...not wants.
That is against my will.

The other part.
That part wants you.
With all my heart.
With all of my body.

Lips
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
That's the truth about you.
You're an ancient being.
We met before. Right?
I saw you before. I felt you before.

But have I ever told you about that kiss?
How your soft lips moulded with mine?
How I had tingles from my back down to my legs?
I felt....flabbergasted.

When I put my hand son your waist,
I felt powerful, I could pull you in.
Hold you close.
Keep you with me.

If your eyes are Sapphires,
Your face, made of porcelain,
Then your lips...
They are clouds.

Soft, energetic, expressive.
They are powerful tools.
And you know how to wield them.
You mastered them.

The Leo.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
What's your star sign? Let me guess a Leo?
I felt it. You're strong.
And charming.
Proud even, like a lion.

I'm a Pisces, a romantic...
Oh, you are too? Ok!
You like a challenge as well,
yeah, me too.

And you're an adventurer.
An artist as well. Smart and Free.
I like your soul. Your face. Your body.
I love, your mind.

I barely get lost. I know my way around the world.
I know how to protect myself against monsters.
Even my own. But your eyes;
I'm lost. I know the exit, yet not where they lead to.

Don't give me the map. Its ok.
I can handle it. Let the green light be the guide.
You're fragile and sensitive.
You're bare, unfiltered.

I like that a lot. And you like me too?
I'm...in awe. Wow. You? Really?
I...thank you, beautiful lady.
I appreciate you.

What can you teach me?
Lets exchange lessons.
A give and take.
You seem wise. Enlighten me.

I am.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
To see, is to inspire.
To touch, is to feel.
To understand, is to listen.
To be, is to act...

I lay here. Thinking.
I know what I am.
What I can do.
Not about my limitations though.

For I am sill man.
I am flawed.
I can be monstrous.
I can hurt.

Let me replace your insecurities with compliments.
Feed your romance with candles and poems.
Let me give you that thrill of being alive.
Let me remind you what it means to live and breath.

Let me not just cover you from the demons,
But give you the tools to fight them.
Allow me to sweep you off your feet on your darkest days.
Allow me to smile with you on the brightest of days.

My will to fight will never die, this is me.
My morale may be broken but my spirit remains.
I am who I am because of what I am.
I do what I do, because I know who you are.

Where will I see you?

Cave
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
I walk in darkness.
In a cave surrounded by black crystals.
The deeper I go. The darker it gets;
The less visible that light behind me becomes.

It's colder now.
The crows have started to sing.
The vampires are coming out of the shadows.
Im in the eye of the storm.

I can hear the waves.
I can see the crescent moon behind the clouds.
There is a light at the end of the cave.
And beneath me, a cliff held up by titans.

I want to go for a swim.
Just jump in.
Swim away with the current.
Go on...do it!

Break the stanza,
Taint the poems.
Burn the letters and jump;
Nov 2019 · 187
Fear
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Everyone is afraid.
Of taking that leap.
Diving head first into the unknown.
Letting go of whats comfortable.

Don't be afraid.
For you might find something else.
In that darkness you might find true happiness.
What you truly desire.

Who knows?
You might have it all.
You might have nothing as-well.
But at least you'll find yourself.

Because out of the darkness,
You'll emerge.
Stronger, better, braver.
Do not fear change.

In the shadows:
Are monsters they created for us to fear.
But it isn't true.
Don't lie to yourself.

A Game of Chess
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Theres revolution in the air.
Whiskey in my cup.
Chess on the table.
Chaos without and within.

With every move I make. The king must never die.
But the Queen is the most powerful piece.
Lose the Queen and you lose the game!
It's all about the girl.

The girl who easily stole my heart.
But where are you?
Flying high with the Sparrows?
Or in the deep with the Sirens?

Wheres your sweet song?
Whats your gaze setting upon?
Which subject are you talking about?
Who will check on who first.

I must make the first move.
We are at a stalemate.
You cannot move a piece.
You need to protect your king.

Give me the crown!
Let me be king.
I'll protect you.
Turn the Queen to a Goddess.

I miss you
I do.
It's not a lie.
This, I know is true.

Muse II
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Once a Muse is there.
It shall remain to taunt the writer.
Inspire the artist to create.
Fuel the thinker to wonder.

I want to write;
But im running out of paper.
I want to write;
But it hurts with every word I jot down.

I want to create;
Make things to put you in them.
I want to create;
But I can't show you anything.

I want to think;
Think of you and I, against all odds.
I want to think;
But Im too lost in my own head.

Im out of papers. Ive written too much, yet cannot stop.
My memory is fill. Ive imagined to my own exhaustion.
Im out of time. Ive created my own utopia.

I cant breathe. Im anxious.
I cant eat. My stomach hurts.
I cant let go. My heart is in tourment.

I lay in bed a night.
Hoping I'd hear from you.
Wishing you were thinking of me.

What happened to the long nights of discussion.
What happened to the warm nights in your arms.
What happened to the everlasting gaze in your eyes.

They say distance helps separate people.
But not when theres unfinished business.
Not like this. This doesn't feel right.

I have the motivation to fight.
I have the reason to fight.
Yet, i don't have the blessing to fight for you.

You want me to hate you.
Make it easier for you.
But I harbour no hate for you.

I am jealous of what he has.
I am sorry for what I lost.
I am empty because you're silent.

Who?
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Light up some sage.
Bring down your cauldron.
Put a candle on.
Let the rain be your music.

I am no wizard.
Nor am I a man of god.
But in times like these.
Maybe I should believe in someone.

Who am I?
A man split in two.
Consumed by anger.
Driven by freedom.

I am containing myself.
Holding back.
Baby, this isn't who I am.
I fight for what I want.

Think not of is as an act of selfishness...I am not selfish.
Nor as an act of heroism...I am no hero.
But because I understand what you are, who you are.
Im holding myself back. Fighting myself.

Finding a reason...why should I stop?
It's because you respect her boy.
You fool. Slave to love.
Captive of your own desires.

I am no wizard.
Nor am I a man of god.
But in times like these.
Maybe I should believe in myself.

Light up some sage.
Let the ashes fall in the heathen ***.
Get that sentimental pendant...
And wear that red gem around your neck.

You
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
You
I attempted to move forward tonight.
I was with a different crowd.
There was a girl I though I might like.
But all i could think of was you.

She isn't you.
Non of them walk like you.
Talk like you.
None of them give out the same energy.

How am I supposed to move on?
How can I?
I'm ******* up.
Its hard holding back.

I can talk to you. But I'm doing this for you. Not me. If it were be I'd be there.
Still in the picture.
But I was hurting and confusing you.

But how can I know if you're ok?
How can I make sure he is respecting you?
How can I know he is giving you what you need?
Or that he sees you as you?

All I want to do is connect.
Break the silence.
I'm afraid you'll forget me.
I'm afraid you've already started to drift away.

Souls
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
There is a lion up above embedded in the stars.
At midpoint between the stars and the sea, flashes a green light.
Slightly above sea level are two people sharing conversation.
And below in the deep sea are two fish tied together.

The lion roared filling the girl up with interest.
The fish stirred up the current making sure his conversation remains interesting.
The green light flashed brighter with each passing second.
Making sure they remained safe and the night remains lit.

They connected on that night.
Soul, heart and mind.
The attraction was there.
But only poems could reveal what they felt.

Forbidden and forsaken.
Yet still driven towards each other.
Old souls re connected.
Ancient feelings re visited.

Temple
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
You're my temple.
I could talk to you.
Tell you everything.
You wouldn't judge.

The shadows are consuming me.
The nights are getting longer.
I can't sleep nor rest.
I'm exhausted.

I felt safe with you.
I felt at home.
Now, I'm by myself.
Away from sanctuary.

Active
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
You're Active.
One click away.
Just to check in, a simple;
Hello! How are you?

To know if you are thinking of me,
As much as I've been thinking of you.
I want to break the rules.
I was never one to block out my heart.

Not seeing you is killing me.
I thought it would make things easier.
Bit its hopeless.
I want to break all the rules. And come for you.

Take you with me,
Somewhere unknown.
Somewhere only we will know where to find.
And we will start meeting there.

Once every fourth night!
Just you and I.
To exchange tales.
To exchange hugs.

Loss.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
There is no winner here.
I did not win.
You did not win.
We both lost.

No loss is greater then the other.
A loss is a loss.
No matter the outcome in the end.
No matter the road taken at the end.

I have lost a war.
I have lost a friend.
I have lost a partner.
I have lost myself.

My heart is about the explode.
My stomach aches in pain.
My head throbbing in sorrow.
My eyes red from tears.

I am sure you feel no different.
I wish I could say this will change.
I see you there. Only a click away.
Right in front of me. Yet...so distant.

Treasure.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
I am no Pirate to you.
I am no thief.
I am to you what you are to me.
Treasure.

A Goddess to I.
A Treasure to thee.
Those Sapphire Eyes;
Can never lie to me.

Forever immortalised in my poetry.
Once a Muse, always a muse.
For a muse doesn't die.
A muse, like a volcano: sleeps.

Seeking to be awakened.
Seeking the Robins to embrace the cold winter.
Seeking the Sparrows to wonder the oceans.
Seeking the Sirens to sing sweet melodies.

A Muse is an un sinkable ship.
Holding tight to its treasure.
Protected by its Goddess.
Drifting slowly along the current.

To Dream.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Close your eyes.
And dream.
Dream of me.
Dream of all that could have been.

Dream of the beaches and the passion.
Dream of the struggles and storms.
Dream of the sunrise and sun sets.
Dream of the two of us, amidst all of this.

Who am I kidding?
I am the one dreaming.
I am the one lost in fantasy.
I cant help but think.

All I can do is dream.
Of what could have been.
Of how I could have been that one.
Of where this is going to take us.

Wake up boy. Stop dreaming.
Don't fool yourself. Stop thinking.
Open your eyes and see what it actually is.
This isn't Neverland. This is real

Fire
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Archers!
Ready your bow.
Aim.
Fire.

The last arrow was fired.
And as quickly as the arrow sprang from bow to target.
She was gone.
Disappearing into the night, dressed in black.

What is this urge to impress you?
This feeling of heartbreak over someone that was never mine?
Why is there still hope?  
Maybe because theres still a spark.

And with that spark I want to burn the world.
Burn it with you!
But...I think;
I'm only burning myself.

I'd do anything.
Go anywhere.
Just to see you.
In my arms again.

Archers!
Ready your bow.
Aim.
Fire.

Ready?
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Are you ready to draw the final arrow?
To take that last gaze upon those sapphire eyes?
To put your hands on her porcelain waist?
To touch those heavenly lips with my own?

I can't let go of you're heart. Im addicted.
Addicted to your humour.
Addicted to your love.
Addicted to your care.

Let me take you on adventures.
Let me show you I am worth it.
Let me hold you tightly and hug you.
Let me show you passion.

With my hands on your face.
My eyes locked with yours.
My energy towards you.
My love within you.

How can one let go of all of this?
How could I forget?
How could I let you go?
How can I cast myself out of the picture?

I want to breathe your air.
Laugh at your jokes.
Learn from your wit.
Run into the night with you.

Am I ready to draw the final arrow?
The truth is...
No.
I am not.
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
She wore pearls in her ears.
Wings in her eyes.
Black all over.
Sort of a Victorian Lady.

She stunned the room she walked into.
Her confidence radiated and bounced off the walls.
All eyes were on her.
Well, at least mine surely are.

Time to let go.
The wall's up on her side...
I'm trying to building mine.
Brick by ******* brick...slowly but sadly, surely.

Such a Goddess.
Such a magnificent creature.
Such a pearl.
Only class wear pearls at that age.

How do you **** a muse?
Does it hurt more to not write or to write?
Where did all my strength go.
Why did I expose myself?

Maybe I'm addicted to the fall.
I love the struggle.
I love that she said she loves me.
But its all wrong...right?

Its time to fade into the dark.
Let her go. That's it...
Turn off the lighthouse.
Let the dream crumble.

Kingdom
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Burn the whole kingdom to the ground.
Let these flames set them free.
Give them reason to start afresh.
Give them reason to run away from me.

Let the flames lead them to the forest.
The forest secretly owned by the law.
The same law that destroyed my kingdom, my home.
And though they might not know it, or even believe it.

I'll protect them.
I'll keep them safe.
I'll be there, in the shadows.
Until they come to realise, why it was done.

A plague has besieged the city.
And Id rather drive you out
Then let a plague bestow upon you.
I promised to protect you.

For sometimes, you need to burn down bridges;
Bridges you no longer think can hold the both of us.
Be safe my love.
Forgive me.

I may have lost my kingdom.
My subjects.
My love.
But I can never lose my crown.

Loss
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Put down your weapons.
Hold all fire.
Lower the black.
Weight the anchor.

I lost the fight.
Turned my own canons on me.
I destroyed my own ship.
To give her safe passage.

And now, I watch you sail away.
Watch you leave into the sun set with someone else.
Something I expected.
But not what I wanted.

There be no wind in my sails.
No character in my flag.
No cheer among my men.
What I possess is a small red gem.

I hold it close to me;
While I wait.
Wait for the wind to pick up.
Wait for my sails to fill up with wind.

Untitled
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
I walked in the dead of night.
Only the moon could guide me.
Show me where i am headed.
And the path i chose tonight led me to that green light.

I stood at the edge, felt the sea rash on my face.
I wanted it to consume me.
Let me be one with the waves.
Leave for a while.

But then...
I screamed my lungs out.
I let the anger out.
Only to let it bounce back in.

Love is a painful experience.
And when you hurt....you don't know how it happened.
For what sound does the heart make when it breaks?
Its as quiet as a dragons flap, yet as powerful as the wind he creates.
