The Phoenix and the Raven
Winter Sparrow Jan 2019
There is a forest,
Somewhere around; Nowhere.
And in this forest on a barren patch.
Is a cottage.

On one side of the cottage there is a field,
That burns through night and day.
On the other side is a river,
Where it rains from dusk till dawn.

In this small cottage,
Lives a poet and his two pets.
One a Raven; as black as night.
One a Phoenix; burning brighter then light.

They fight and tease each other.
But although the Phoenix is stronger
The Raven always gets the better of him.
So the Phoenix rages on.

Every night, the house catches on fire,
And the field of fire consumes the house.
Causing the fire to grow stronger.
And spread through the forest even more.

But at 4 am in the morning,
The raven flies up to the moon,
And commands the winds and waters,
To put the fire out of the cottage.

Every morning,
The poet re builds the right side of the house.
Making sure the next fire,
Wont be as damaging.

But one day,
The phoenix turned from a fiery red,
To a midnight blue,
And burned not only the house, but the whole forest.

The river went dry,
The forest turned to ask,
The poet could not re build.
And the Raven had no water or wind to call.

The poet had to go else where.
But could only take one pet.
And although the phoenix burned brighter,
The darkness of the raven seemed safer.

The phoenix was enraged,
He became one with the burning forest.
He rose up to the sky,
And promised to reign heavily on them with ***** of fire.

The raven protected the poet,
And called on to the night,
And with one strong swing of her wings
She blew out the fire that consumed the phoenix and the forest.

Out of the ash,
The poet could re build nothing,
But the Raven offered him protection,
Under her dark wings.

In darkest of nights,
He was protected buy the calmest.
In the heat of the fire,
He feared to burn out and cease to be.

Look at you.
Getting beaten up,
Being everyones *****.
What have you become?

A tired old man
A broken god
No one remembers the glory
No one remembers your help

The ravens have left you
They travelled south
Looking for other victims
Victims of fame and glory

They tortured you,
Tormented you,
Played you,
Glorified you.

And you prevailed,
Oh you conquered.
You led;
You achieved.

But you're just tired now,
This is part of your plan.
Time to go and relieve yourself.
Meet your Ragnarok

I admire you.
The honesty, the purity
The seconds of happiness
The moments of passion

How does this moment last forever?
Without secrecy...but the same intimacy.
How does one feel?
How should we react?

What is right doesnt mean it will lead to happiness.
What is wrong doesnt mean its worth loosing what is.
But how do we know?
We dont.

Its all risks. A risk worth taking?
A risk worth fighting for?
Whatevere it was...
All it took was a single spark.

All it takes is a singe spark.
A single spark that set ablaze not just the heart.
A spark felt throught.
It never felt so good to be on fire.

But how does a spark end?
Pour water on it?
No. Not this kind of spark.
This is one that merges.

Before it dies out,
It catches fire with someone elses spark.
Fight fire with fire.
And all you get is a bigger fire.

Could the flames burn for eternity?
Die out in a day?
But, how did the spark catch on this much?
Whats so special?

Sirens preserve theirs under the moonlight.
Where the smoke creates the plantes.
The planets then orbit the earth.
Fall down and blaze up the fire again.

The Sparrow is a little more chaotic and less poetic.
She lights up her home, but she keeps adding the twigs.
Does she destroyed her own home?
Or has she created a weapon?

All it takes is a single spark,
To start a fire, a revolution, a war
And the most important thing of all.
To start the shimmerin your eye.

Here I sit
Winter Sparrow Dec 2016
Here I sit, quietly and peacefully,
while the rest are out drinking,
planning their boring futures,
meeting their ‘soul mates’.

Here I sit, wondering and gazing,
how great my life would be,
If I got my Hogwarts letter at 11,
Experiencing the world of wizards.

Here I sit, thinking and guessing
How different my life would be
If I went fishing and found a rare gold ring,
A ring that would bring so much change in the world.

Here I sit, giggling and imagining
How different my life would be
If my best friend was Captain Jack Sparrow,
And live our lives plundering and sailing on open seas.

Here I sit, realising,
Its all a dream of mine,
Just wishful thinking.
About what could be.

Here I sit, not alone,
But with many like me
Wishing that this could be real.
Trying to create what isn't.

Wild Flower
Winter Sparrow Dec 2016
As the poet grew tired
Of what he had seen and
What he had known,
He turned to his garden

He picked the most beautiful,
Wild and strange flower.
A Jasmine; one rare
And unique piece of perfection

As he gazed endlessly
At this pure flower
He knew this was one,
One he could keep.

A rose in a garden of thorns
No beauty as equal to her
As the poet took care, of
The lovely flower

It changed into a human,
An extraordinary woman
With diamond eyes
And flawless looks

The poet grabbed her hand
Kissed her neck and said,
‘I am the poet and
You are my muse’
A poem i wrote 2 winters ago....

Winter has Passed.
Winter Sparrow Mar 2017
The lizards are out.
They crawl among us again,
Bringing about an end to a season.
Winter has passed.

A cold shiver now
Turns into an uncomfortable sweat.
Our armor becomes lesser.
Our days become longer.

The sun pierces our skin,
The cold no longer protects us.
People show more skin.
The time of temptation.

Christmas becomes St. Marys feast.
The fan replaces the christmas tree.
It is now not a time to gather,
But a time to go out in the sun.

Getting drunk by the beach,
Enjoying sweet waves on your feet.
Sand crawling on your hands.
A slight breeze in your hair.

Summer is here.
Winter is dead.
The heat prevails.
The cold descends.

You Repell Me
Winter Sparrow Apr 2017
Look at all of you.
Drunk, out of your senses.
Running along with impulse,
Drowning in tears of sorrow.

But from all of them, you repell me.
You tease for a kiss, in such state.
You triggered something in me.
Not love; thats fake; this isnt!

The rage, the anger, the thirst.
Thirst for your suffering.
You pushed my boundaries.
Boundaries I never knew I could break.

But I am guilty?
You contradict yourself!
You want a future, yet want to die.
Saying that others must deal with their ****.
Why dont you?
Youre as sad and foolish as them.

You wanted to be someones muse.
There you go.
My writing is for you.
My rage is for you.

Things have changed,
Perspectives altered.
The tide has turned;
But not in your favour.

We march.
Unaware of our destination.

So as an act
Of bravery,
Of sadness or
Of fear.

But all we do,
Everywhere we go
We still need a purpose
We still need our motivation

To escape and live
To re start and re gain
To achieve and destroy
To become and to forget.

But till we find our destination,
We try to die,
We try to intoxicate
But lack to be remembered after death.

We march
For nothing
For the faded
For the shattered
For a forgotten cause

The Doors
Winter Sparrow Dec 2016
In the crowded street
Where you cant hear who talks
And you cant see who walks
I hear whispers

Whispers from the ocean
Calls for help and survival

The gentle calls
And silent screams

The man whispering
Was the one dancing
With a knife in his heart
Slowly being thorn apart

Further away
I saw a floating shadow
Whilst i turned
I saw a man hanging

Someone grabbed my hand
As I came closer to the end
He opened the doors
And fire and wind arose

The killer woke before dawn
He put his boots on
He pushed me down
And the sea claimed her forgotten son

The reason you live
The reason you die
All has to do, with
Loves evil eye!

The reason your partner left
Your child cried
That politician lied
That warrior died

All the hands of love,
Cruel yet fulfilling.
Dark yet light.
Its heaven and hell.

We need it.
We want it
You have it
You fear it

Love of power
Love of lust
Love of passion
Love till we're dust

Winter Sparrow Feb 2017
The mind rumbled
The spirit trembled
Creating beauty and passion
Causing chaos and disaster

The skin turned into ground
And covered what was around
The heart melted away
And filled seas and oceans asway/ of gray/ swaying astray

The eyes became mountains
And cried away as they could not see one another
Yet tears created river streams that met
and later joined the hearty seas

But blood grew angry
He formed as a mountain
Incomplete..... a volcano
And from it blood and smoke arose

From time to time
The mountains may cry
The seas may beat
And the ground may grumble
as the sky turns grey with ash

But as one they funtion
Intertwined into oblivion
Following a yellow ghost
Circled by grey illumination

The Storm
Winter Sparrow Jul 2017
They walked. Away from people. Into the wind.
The waves beat the stones. He caresses her hand.
The horizon far away into the sun. Their bodies, closer then god and heaven.
The cliffs, taller then their ego. But their passion overcame its height.

They stood there. He squeezed; she held.
As the sea, gently, yet quickly, devoured the sun.
Then the fight began. Two lost animals.
The bear gazed into the tigers eyes. A stand off.
They battled for hours. Holding back. Even though the waves grew stronger.
Yet the wind felt smoother.

A storm was brewing.

Into the eye of the storm they dived. And from it...wanted no return.

The stars were roaring.
Their eyes; closed
The sea was furious.
Their kiss; gentle.
The horizon became wider.
Their limits; narrower.

These ghosts escaped from a dream. Unaware of whats next. Loving its oblivion.

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!

What will you do then?
Winter Sparrow Jun 2017
How does one get the medias attention?
You dont just do the ordinary.
One would go for the extremes.
All in all to make a statement?
To show how powerful one is?

Some create a new toy
Others release a blockbuster movie
Countries might hold elections
And a man will run naked in the streets.
Or think bigger.

Destroy a historical landmark,
Run people over with a truck,
Shoot civilians,
Behead people online;
Blow yourself up.

And you managed toget our attention.
You've divided people.
You've also created alliances.
Inflicted hate, rage, anxiety, fear.
You've made your statement

But, after we get used to
The shock, the fear, the terror.
What will you do then?

The Eruption
Winter Sparrow Jan 2019
His neck tightens,
His eyes flair up,
His teeth cluster,
His fists clutches.

His thoughts move,
Into an oblivious state.
Destruction is on his mind.
And no emotion left behind.

Like a volcano,
He boils up.
Tension heats up the core,
The magma chambers are full.

He cant take it back.
He refuses to take it back,
He cant prove otherwise.
Not on deaf ears.

A victim?
A fool?

His eyes seem to look beyond you,
He is hurt, annoyed, betrayed.
Like a mouse trapped in a corner.
All he can do, is fight back.

The earth rumbles,
The tides shift.
The sun hides away,
In clouds of ash.

He's done.

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.

Forbidden Fruit
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Whats happening?
What was once green and fruitful, is turning ripe.
But I am forbidden, and so are you.

I cant help but fall...but maybe its not you.
Its not you .thats making me fall. It could be anyone.
We all want that which we cannot have.

We lust for danger. We lust for that which we shouldn't touch.
But I did touch you, and you...
Was it my heart? Or was it a coincidence?

Maybe it could have been any other person,
Maybe it could have been me?
Maybe its because I haven't been in touch with me.

I want to dance the night away.
But I like company.

All fruits ripen.
So it's a matter of time until you ripen as well.
But how can I preserve you forever?

I love you. And you love me.
I don't want you to ripen,'re not helping yourself.

Ive tried...I still am. But i'm tired.
Ive crossed no lines, yet made connections.
But i don't want to give up.

Am I Adam; in a garden only allowed to touch one fruit?
Am I Eve; tempted to try out new things.
Am I Lucifer; only satisfied when all else collapses around me.

I want to dance the night away.
Light a cigarette on the bridge.
I want to be alone.

Not because i want to.
But because you wont understand...
You wont understand me, you'll label me.

Im cruel: You're right.
Im harsh: You've got it.
Im unworthy: Im sorry.

Im the father of my own sins,
Im the son of my own darkness,
Im the spirit of my own demise.

Its us...

I know what I want.

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.

I am no Pirate to you.
I am no thief.
I am to you what you are to me.

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.

Look at the sky
What do you see?
Are you intrigued by the stars?
Or are you too busy behind locked bars?

You know you have the key,
Possess the power.
Take the moment!
Look at infinity!

You trap yourself
Not knowing you're alive
Live! Look up once in a while,
Breathe! Learn how to die.

We trap ourselves,
In clouds of thoughts.
Creating an endless forest
Appealing, but dark

You found the key
You looked up
Its too dark,
Some of us like it

Lets dance with the stars
Talk to the moon
**** death all night long
Drink the ocean dry

Because at night
There is nothing
The darkness makes you feel whole
The screaming moon makes you feel infinite

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 Horseman comes
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
The wind howls from the north.
A cold blizzard has struck;
Leaving the man astray;
But the poet couldn't stop.

A horseman approaches...
Fate? Death? Destiny?
None of those;
It was reality.

The reality of a memory never forgotten.
The reality of a touch never betrayed.
The reality of a gaze upon ones glass eyes never amiss.
The reality if it being what it is.

The winter sparrow tells an Autumn tale of lust
Medusa engraved the moment on Smokey Quartz.
The witch added the forbidden lovers spice to the brew.
And the horsemen rode off into the night with all he could take.

Yet, the poet lusts for more.
His muse, she too wants that.
But what is may never be...
Or could they both be wrong?

Only time can tell
What only the moon knows.
Until the winds howl again.
Unless they never stop.

I fear this...but I love this.

I love that you make me smile.

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.

I am trying hard you know;
To avoid conversation.
Had you been boring...or dumb
Things would be much easier.

If this was only the cravings of the flesh.
Things would just be dealt with once we meet.
I am trying me I am.
And I don't want to break the silence.

Because I know how much you want this wall.
But what about that conversation we didn't finish?
What about your likes and dislikes?
Tell me all about them!!

I want to know a lot more.
But you're much stronger then I am.
And youre doing the right thing.
Im the weak one here.

I never thought, i would crave a simple hello this much.
I appreciate the distance. And I understand it.

Inhale and Exhale
Winter Sparrow May 2017

Ashes to ashes,
They fell down.
One long brown figer.
Shortened by a breath.

Inhale and exhale.

Breathe in,
Let it calm you.
Breathe out,
Damage is done.

None bearing children shall touch
None underage shall touch
Harmful yet pleasing
Relaxing yet breathtaking.

Inhale and exhale

The 6th finger shortens;
Half of it is gone.
Gaze around.
Feel the breeze.

I take it in
It runs through my systems
As its life shortens
So does mine.


Ashes to ashes
We both will fall down
But I step on you,
You decayed before I did.

Full sail!
Winter Sparrow Jun 2017

Ready your spirits
Summon your courage
Load your pistols
Sharpen your guns!

We shall attack at dawn;
And fight on till dusk.
Give no quarter
Show no fear.

The enemy will not rest.
He shall not give up,
Not until we give into him,
Not until he gets what he came for.

Lets fight wisely,
And strike strongly.
This is a life long battle.
He wont win, not yet.

Let us strike with the monsters they created,
Let us rule with the power they gave us,
Let us raise hell, and remind them,
That there is no heaven waiting for them.

Raise the black flag,
Go to your stations.
Life will spare no risks.
But ill take them all.

Against the current
I shall raise.
With or without you.
Theres a replacement at every port.

I was spat out into this world,
Alone, along with people who
had no choice in choosing their son.
And I have no problem leaving alone.

So, to who ever stands beside me,
I ask you again.
Without any assurance of victory,
Yet no space for loss!

Ready your spirits,
Summon your courage
Load your pistols
Sharpen your weapons.

For every writer without a story
for every lover without lust
for every poet without a rhyme
for every actor without a stage
for every singer without a song
for ever painter without a brush
for every child without a father
for every hero without a mother
for every god without prayer
for every politician without a lie
for every artist without a muse

I salute your will to carry on
Dont look for money, company and noise
Seek silence, death and fear
Only then, will what you dont have, be gained

In order to find a muse, it must take something from you:
A dream, a lover, an accomplishment, a memory.

You're loosing your mind.
You're loosing your popularity.

And worse of all,

You're loosing our respect.

A tourmented idol for your daughter.
A fallen hero to your son.
A broken lover to your wife.

Yet, you think you're right.

In other places, majority wins.
Sense and reason are what they are.
But somehow, you are the victim.

Somehow, we are the blame.

Your daughter may forget due to her sensitivity.
Your wife may forget due to her undying love.
Your friends may forget due to their tolerance.

But your son, he perceives things differently.

You're tired.
The skies have turned red.
The rivers have started flowing.

Its ok to do things for yourself.
To be wanted, its a desire,
To fulfill it is a need.
But this Robin has your back.

If I could live on your shoulder to make sure you're fine.
To make sure you're safe and feeling as you should.
I would stay there.
You're a gem! If only you were my gem

Don't let anyone or yourself put you down.
Don't let anyone fake away your throne.
Cry if you have to...
Let go. Don't lose yourself.

Rome wasnt built in a day
So how was this achieved in a week?
We cannot speak...
And its killing me.

It hasn't even been a day,
But I can't wait to see you tonight.
Can't help but think of you.
You say we have nothing in common.

But you're an artist, a romantic,
A teacher an enthusiast.
But you're not a dreamer.
Don't raise the bar too low for yourself.

I know we shouldn't talk.
But this is hoping you'll read this.
To be professional is to act in a certain way.
But can you be professional in how you feel?

A wolf can wear sheep's clothing,
Yet he will still howl the night away.
A dagger can be carved like a flower,
yet it still cuts deeper then a roses thorn.

I am what I am.
I feel how i feel.
Should we deny it?
Should we hide it?

You say we are nothing alike.
You're an artist, a romantic, adventurous.
You're challenging...a teacher.
You're thinking of me and I of you.

Its mutual.
And we can help each other.
We understand each other
Because we are going through the same thing.

I can't help but think of the adventures we could have.
The long nights lost in deep discussion.
Telling tales. Planning art.
Speaking poetry.

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.

Flash of Green
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Theres a light at the end of the bridge.
That flash of green...
It matches my heart beat.
It reminds me of you.

It was flashing when we first talked.
It was flashing when we fell for each other.
It was flashing when we talked poetry.
It was flashing when we touched each other.

It still is...
Our days are numbered.
Our talks will cease to be.
...and are we flashing?

I don't want this light to fade.
I don't want you to move on.
I don't want you to forget me.
I don't want you to leave.

Remember me.
Think of me.
Talk to me.
Feel me.

Theres a light at the end of the bridge.
That flash of green...
It will always be linked to you.
I can't help not look at it and smile
Winter Sparrow Nov 2019
Like an Sparrow through the night,
She shot by.
Unaware of what she might hit.
And straight trough me it went.

What a lady she is...
Gentle and sweet, when she holds your hand.
Moulding and mesmerising, when she comes in for a hug.

Straight flowing hair, like arabian cloth.
Smooth skin, like a canvas ready to be painted.
Light eyes, that just like Alice's rabbit hole,
Keep dragging you deeper and deeper.

But what does her most justice, is no feature on the outside, no curve nor stare.
Its her enthusiasm and song.
Her creativity and voice.

Like a siren singing tunes,
Hoping to lure sailors in.
As soon as her voice hit a tune.
She dragged this sailor in.  

Shes a Siren and a Sparrow!
Adventurous, brave, bold...romantic.
Free, powerful and mysterious.
She's a Ballad.

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.

Ready your bow.

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.

Ready your bow.

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' 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.

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.

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...

It feels like the storm has passed.
But the cold can still be felt.
The ground is still wet.
And the lighting can still be seen from a distance.

I am tired. Exhausted.
I want to feel positive, but it only comes out with you.
You made me smile.
You're helping me recover from the wreckage.

Its really stop.
Its mentally draining.
I could talk to you for hours,
And not even feel exhausted.

But the way you push me away
Makes me want to bounce back to you.
How? Why? When will it end?
I cant tell. I don't want to know.

Let me lean on you and kiss your soft lips.
Let me grab your waist and touch your face.
Let me look into your eyes for hours without end.
Allow me go get in.

I understand. You're not mine.
Being forbidden doesn't make you more desirable.
I've come to realise its not that kind of excitement.
Its not that that makes me want you.

You've got something.
Maybe its something I always wanted.
Or maybe a part of me.
I cant just mesmerised.

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.

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.

It's getting colder.
darker days are brewing and my mind is about to explode.
Everyday I try to fight this monster.
Something...nay, someone I never wanter to become.

It's getting darker. Im furious.
Not at you, nor her. But myself.
Everyone is a monster to someone.
But you're not convinced I am that monster.

How? Look at what I destroyed.
This isn't fair on you.
This isn't what I wanted.
Im sorry for the trouble.

Im sorry I am burning bridges I built.
I have become death. The destroyer of worlds.
You should hate me for what Im doing.
I know I would.

We are all monsters to someone.
But by refusing to be yours, I have to become my own.
I am my own monster.
I lost myself in this war.

A war I never thought I would fight.
It was never about winning or losing.
As there is still no answer.
But this is about the outcome.

Who we are after this fight.
Can I live with it?
Can I go on with what I did?
I am able to move past this.

But I've hurt you. Ive destroyed you.
Im not pure. Im sorry.
All I can do is apologise.
I have become what I have been fighting this past year.

I am my own monster.
I don't have fangs,
I don't have claws.
I just don't feel the way you do.

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.
