    In The Gloam

       In the gloam deep in the forest where the faeries sleep There is one who knows She knows the full measure of you; the flame your smile kindles The ache your brown eyes afford with every stroke And the wake you leave in your leaving. In the gloam deep in the forest where the...

    If Only They Spoke ...

    The Ballad of The Reluctant Hero A barkeep

    spoke in a lonely room, "No call for ale I hear? The Pilgrim stands as still as a tomb, for a murderous beast roams near." The late patrol rushed in the door, "Stand us a round," they cried. Youth boasted, "We will kill the beast." Yet in his youth, he died. "I'll not...

    Scary Wears Boots Dance in the darkness.

    So alive amid dying light, Embraced by the night, Illuminate with unseen bliss. The earth is your canvas. Scary, yet I’ve no fear. From afar I see slow dancing: On haunted soil, frolicking In ragged dress with messy hair, Awkward steps oh, so dear. Remove your cozy boots...

    Swift motions of the swooping rain left only

    remnants of what it used to be. Soaked in a puddle on the concrete. Becoming the collective soul of one. Rather than individuals. The teardrop shapes became one. Only to be recycled, to become those quick little sky tears once again.

    Our EP Gesture Dance

    Waking up in the morning, another day dawns, I rush to my computer, I flip the cold box on. As it's familiar sounds start, Time to pour a cup, I rush back to sign on, To see if he's already up. The "Sign In" is complete, Today begins anew, I gesture "Good Morning...

    In Sleepless Hours

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    When The Days Are Through And

    when the paddles slash, Against salty waters, Yet the sharks swim quietly through. The dim lights flash, For one last time, And lies divide from truth. And bands collide, In waging war, 'Till kingdoms fall in blue. And they see the Child, In robes of gray, For it is when the...

    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...
