Hello, My Name Is Sorrow

Haunted and wounded, I sleep in my mother’s embrace.

The ghosts don’t speak to me anymore of our once golden days.

In terrible voices and tragic memories comes the black of my night,

The dark talking through war landscapes, death acts strangely contrite.

I bury my hands in the past of tomorrow,

A cue to forget her who I call sorrow.

How old is this tremor that has held me in my misery,

I leave it all behind for the world, a world so hungry and empty.

My mother, she calls to me, in sleep and lost echoes,

To the end of the land where she stands in ghastly spread meadows.

Weeping Flowers

As dark is to the night, a sunless delight, the ephemeral light has finally ceased.

As red is to blood, a crimson flood, the wounded world now bleeds.

As love is to bind, the cruel and the blind, a lullaby unto sleep.

As death is a lie, an eternal goodbye, still many promises to keep.

The sun is out and it’s a beautiful day but the darkness will always stay.

An Ode To The Lord Of The Sea

Oh dear lord of the sea, only if I could write to thee of the great silence within, of turmoil pickings and grand distress.

Oh dear lord of the sea, only if I could write to thee of strange tides, the dark of the horizon where the sun collides while you swallow it viciously.

Oh dear lord of the sea, only if could write to thee of a starless sky, the scent of someone unknown in disguise and the sinking lull of thee.

Oh dear paramount of tyranny, only if you could speak to me whilst I build a temple of doom and malign as an ode to thee, my ever receding lord of the sea.

Overtime I’ve begun to wilt only to bloom again in death.

Reality lies beneath the tenfolds of death, life is only a lie.

Your Heart Is My Grave

I am dusk settling in you, an endless night begins.

I am teeth gnawing at you, your pale tender skin.

I am a cloudless sky, limitless yet empty.

I am a long lost cry, once your tear but now an absentee.

I am the end of the sea where we were supposed to meet.

I am a battle within myself slowly accepting defeat.

I am distance, growing between you and me.

I am a memory, fading and darkening when our hearts were dying and we differed to agree.

Of Love And Posion

A nameless face sings to me of death and post agony.

Like flowers of needles and remorseless maidens my heart is breaking to this dark symphony.

Tired arms coldly wrap around me consoling me of lost eden.

Like her breath on my neck and her teeth through my skin, her love is purely heathen.

The breeze once hush now a raging storm lifting her orbs so somber.

Like a death wish in a smile spilling my blood to keep her mine, setting my sun in the sky so amber.

This ageless turmoil and her caliginous whispers, a beauty fouled as she fell from grace.

How must I survive love and death from this bewitching nameless face?

God, am I only a subject of birth, maturation and decay?

The Dead Need No Flowers

In the very beginning of what I’d call the end, I am brought alone to a ghastly place far away from my home.

I’m very aware of the consequences of my delirious nature and I also know that I’m yet another human subject to a grave stone.

In the very beginning of what I’d call hope, I have found despair in the corner of my heart where your hands couldn’t reach.

If I have to choose what I’d want to be today, I would choose to be numb and bring silence to my speech.

In the very beginning when I’d expect myself to be brave, I have found fear, the one that’s insisting to stay.

Amongst all odds, all macabre, all dread and all dark, my eyes beg to pray.

In the very beginning of when I thought I would live a little longer, I am dying at a slow pace, a morbid character at display.

And in my final moments when i’m expected to lie down in fabric and sleep, here I am lonely and flying away.
