May all those now departed this mortal life

Amen.

Truth Serum

popular and telling the truth do not always go hand in hand
in fact it can get you into a place you would much rather not go
alone, ostracized, and very unpopular indeed.

war
nivek Apr 13
war
war threatens along your edges
a place called territorial

a stake through the heart

the place where love resides
and is utterly tested.

your last groan
nivek Apr 12

with a label tied to your toe

a scarred one a treasure
and mending one can take a lifetime.

Dream On Dreaming On
nivek Apr 12
Trailing dreams of the night
stretched to no turning back
remembering snippets
-oddments disjointed and
yet coherently dreamy.
Searching for prophesy or
perhaps a glimmer of truth
somewhere deep in the mind
it has to be there, somewhere
we hope and dream on and
dream on dreaming on.

my lizard skin
nivek Apr 10
my lizard skin, cold as death
reaches out to claim your heat
to hold you in my clawed hand
and bite deep into your life.
To howl in the mountains
and groan in childbirth
to wipe my mouth of blood
while picking you out of my teeth.

Snowed in, warm snuggle
the return of Christmas
chocolate box perfect.
nivek Apr 9
I supped on the pages of a dictionary
ate words till I bled
put down some on paper
and waited behind the pages of death
I supped again and a rose grew from my bones
a Bumble Bee fed
we both put down our differences
and celebrated our mutual love of flowers.

a coin toss
nivek Apr 8
Outer-space news arrives in the eye
at the end of a telescope, but its always old news.
Some news is better than no news when it comes to inter-galactic neighbours, some say.
But we are dealing with a coin toss here, truth be said.
nivek Apr 7
imagination, imaging the dream
I'm ag in a nation all in the mind
time is relative, a Snail or Cheetah
both win their respective 100metres.
