The Torment

You've seen beyond the dark
You've lived behind the light
What is it?

To you the truth is lies
To you life is a crime

Your lies make you survive
Your truth is where they hide

Dark rages deep inside
Light can't get through your eyes.

The secrets of the night
love burned out of sight
The horrors of the mind
The torment you must find

What is it?

The Equalizer, Love


The sun will shine brighter tomorrow

          When we learn to transform our sorrow,

                    For the terrors we witness today,

          Hold the keys to build castles from clay ...

Thus, as hard as they are to impart,

          Tragedies plant a seed in our heart,

                    To grow blooms from the horrors of men ...

          And insure they don't happen ... again.

Humanity's Story

Once upon a time, 
When love knew –
No bounds and shackles
We dwelt in Eden

Then, the genesis of the ego
Spewed wide open Pandora’s Box
And its burdens and horrors
All, adventurously, flew forth

Now all humanity is in wake 
Of a teardrop they await
Straight from heaven’s gates
Pondering over the Lord’s grace

But lead and sulphur,
Stirred in a lake – do burn
Where all hell is unleashed
Upon the earth from beneath.

The student bar

The student bar

I went there just to see
All the decency lost
Nudity everywhere
Parents don't have a clue
The Noise , the drunkness ,the drama
Pretense celebrities
I went there just to see

Embarrassed to say, words fail me
A mere look tells you all
This place, a reflections of the horrors of our society
A little hell
When do they grow up
I just went there to see
All the chaos , flying bottles

Church people, oh i am embrassed to say
Those smiles and that socialising unity
Beauty distorted, love measured
The height of the voices
I just went there to see but what i saw i am embarrassed to say.

A Small Still Voice

Through this tempest dark I hear
That small still voice of love
Which fills me now with cheer
And faith in the One above.
Oh dreadful storm approaching
Hurling downward spears of fright
Your thunderous encroaching
Is bereft now of its might!
What horrors now instill thee
Seeking hearts to destitute?
Why bid you to harass me
And my peace to prosecute?
   For naught bids as highly priced
   As God's promise kept in Christ.

Wilma Mankiller, I love that name
It wasn't too much of a nothing day
Such a pretty, pretty boy
In such a pretty, pretty car
Nearness of blood
He didn't go far

Wounded, abandoned, lost
Hidden inside the woods
                     deep waters   
                     shallow grave

Winds in the trees
                     whisper
                     whisper
Only God knows the name

Perched on winter's bone
Sings a sparrow
                     no horrors
                     without sorrow

Forced to bare the bitter chill
Of infinity's winters alone
How bright the stars
How cruel the frost
                     after death
                     nature follows

Hard To Forgive

You kill my will, my heart on fire
This treatment I do not desire,
My mind confused and I fell ill,
My heart on fire, you kill my will.
	
Pain and sorrow, I can’t forget,
Though as time moves, you now regret,
You didn’t think of tomorrow ,
I can’t forget ,pain and sorrow.

You hurt greatly, without thinking,
Where were you, when I was sinking,
Now you came back pleading daily,
Without thinking, you hurt greatly .

True forgiveness, it’s hard to give,
Horrors of past , I can’t relive  ,
You gave series of sleeplessness ,
It’s hard to give ,true forgiveness .

I Hear The Angels Calling My Name

I hear the angels calling my name
Away from those devils not easy to tame,
Away from the sins that shape the earth,
Away from Satan laughing with mirth.

I hear the angels calling my name
Away from cupid’s faulty aim,
Away from a love that did not last,
Away from the horrors of an undying past.

I hear the angels calling my name
Away from a routine that is always the same,
Away from a life filled with despair,
Away from a heart broken beyond repair.

Yes, I hear the angels calling my name
Away from my troubles, Away from my shame,
Away from my loss, Away from my pain,
Away from my faults, only peace to now gain.

Show Me

i want you to show me
the deepest part
of your consciousness

i want to see the twisted thoughts
the monsters
the horrors
that keep you up
screaming
late into the night 

i want to understand
the intricate 
and fragile design 
that is your mind

i want to meet your demons 
and hear the things
they whisper into your ear

i want to hold your hand
as they tear you apart
so you know
that you aren't alone.

Drowned God

Soft tongue, sharp teeth
Leave unto me your poetry like a wreath
Ivory skin, translucent.
You breathe color unto me,
Wreak ravishing horrors.
We become Dionysus’s servants
Dance, dancing mad,
tremulous whispers lulling me further 
Into the eye of the maelstrom.
Twisty and dark, your salty kiss burns and deteriorates.
You spit out the bones, the tarry flesh, cracks besmirched ivory
A rusted over echo
Of a copy of a copy of a copy

The Night Terror

The phasing of my nightmares
Through to conscious time
Has stolen my last dreamscape
As this child screams inside

My creations always singing
Of the fear that still hides
Behind incentive’s reason
To pretend I didn’t die

This place without a meaning
Dressed in ashen love
Locking up its history
And mopping up my blood

The burning of my nightmares
Into this black hole
Reveals the bold reflection
Of the horrors in my soul

I’ve shaped my own existence
Using broken hearts
The red abyss now laid before me
Is everything I am so far

The truth is all around me
The night terror took my dreams
This child is now a monster
And alone I need to feed

A Written Word

Do not be afraid or terrified 
For the Lord your God is with you.
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Even when you face horrors,
Troubles bigger than mountains, 
Even then be strong,
Do not be discouraged,
For what good will that do the Lord.
He who created the earth and the universe
Can build a whole new world for you
Take hold of His Word.
And His love that is eternal
For the Lord delights in His children.
Those who love the LORD.
Shall see goodness in His life.
They shall be blessed
And with their very own lips
They shall say:-
"Praise the Lord my God
Who has spoken light into my life
and separated me from the darkness.
He has made a whole new world for me."

Loving You Through Hard Times

Times of change vents in breezes,
whistling sorrows...but for a moment.
Pleasured diamonds shine like spring
in seasons of dull haunted misgiving.

Kindred spirits entwined together
standing against all life's battles.
A blessing here to finally see through
the horrors into a wonderful friendship.

My heart reaches out with undying love
to comfort emotional anguish inside.
Prayers sent to heavens thrown room
to bring peace back into your sweet life.

I’m sorry it took so long to write you
for sickness had settled within my body.
But know that my heart goes out to you
and loves you with all that’s within me.

Ancient ways

Ancient ways sing the night
Not of horrors and fright
But of light and love
From the god’s from above

Healing pain and healing heart
It’s the ancient art
Open your heart and you will see
The love that lives in the heart of me

Ancient ways sing the night
Of love and light
Not pain nor sorrow 
Or gloomy tomorrow

Look to the stars above
You will see the love
Ancient ways sing the night
To the hearts delight

Close your eyes and feel the pain
Let your tears fall like cleansing rain
Only then you will see
The way life was meant to be

Ancient ways sing the night
Leads to love’s guiding light
Open your heart and see
Then your soul and spirit are free!

Honey Im home

Honey I'm home..
but only echoes greet me.
the only smiles shown
are broken memories laid anyway but discreetly
silence is my new found spouse
the only weather I notice is my tear soaked blouse
the only thing I hear is mumbled noises from my mouth
the only food in my fridge is fear
I seer and season it it with my blues
everything in here including myself are askew
looking for my honey and all I found was bees
living in a hive of horrors
when once living but a dream
I dont even fight time
without you this life is not mine
still I scream the same question still
looking for my love my honey who has been killed.

The stars have shone from times beginning

Sheathed in holsters from fire to ice, 
holding burning through the freezing oceans, 
and freezing through the blazing skies. 
The pain I have felt, from these scars, 
these past horrors, from the beginning 
these are my stars, my freezing oceans 
and burning skies, and I let them shine with you, 
I let them shine with no one but you. 
See my flares lighting up the pitch black sky, 
dyes of red, yellow and blue all calling out to beckon you. 
My dear I bow before you a man who is torn in half, 
ripped apart from his other half, without you, 
let me join, so we together can light up the pitch black sky.

Cataracts

  Kiss my eyes 

with your lips,

inhale the visions,

peel ing strips,

cataracts

from all the years,

layered horrors,

gathered fears,

gently excise with

your blade,

honed down from

the love we made,

clouded corneas 
of pain

to

let me see 

love's light

again.

Battle

Let the battle begin!
One side light one side dark,
The battle ground is Earth.
Will evil win?
Or will good prevail? 
They fight for us,
One to save.
One to control.
Who will take your immortal soul?
Will you fight the good fight?
Or give in to brimstone and fire?
Tick tock, tick tock, beware the final hour.
Once the hammer falls, this world they will devour.
Where do you stand?
Choose a side,
Sooner or later we will all die.
But be wise,
After this life you may be surprised.
You either find love, joy and light.
Or be thrown into the horrors of endless pain and night.
And the battle begins...

War

A Gallant Knight on a horse of white
As he gallops into Battle
He fears not for he hath vowed
To protect the King and Castle

The battles fraught with many dead
And many return blood stained
They return with night mares of
A war that left them maimed

They witnessed all the horrors
All the ugliness of war
And they prayed to God above.
There would never be no more

But mankind can not live
Without Wars it’s a must
We put our faith in our leaders
And it’s them that we trust

So all we can do is pray every day
That our leaders will do the right thing
That Peace & Love & Harmony and Joy
To this beautiful Earth they will bring.

Let us sing you a song to break your heart.

There, there, love,
let us sing you a song to break your heart.

Ashes ring around the rosie 
And London Bridge is falling down.
Humpty Dumpty is broken to pieces
Jack and Jill roll dead down the hill.

Sprat is starving, his Misses is coding
And Wednesday’s child is meant for grief.
Cradle and baby were abandoned in treetops high
And when its 11, old man knick-knacks to heaven.

For it is these things I’ll sing you
To comfort your weary little heart.
What horrors you must know as young
To rest in these stories of life to come.

Happiness comes and goes
And we don’t live on forever.
You live, you love, you break, you die
Or so I’ll tell you in nursery rhymes.

Lover Scorn

Love and fear fill all our hearts
Its what you do with it that matters
Love can bring you joy 
Love can bring you pain
Love can drive you completely insane
Fear will take over your mind
Memories of horrors you fear to find
But if you can get past this point 
I promise love will not disappoint
Like the first time you smoked a joint
The feeling will take over all that is you...
Making you forget all you went through
Love is not a toy,
It can bring pain or bring you joy
Don’t play with love, for this I warn
There is nothing in life worse
Then a lover scorn~

I dare to dream

I dare to dream!

With all the horrors in the world,
The hatred there has been,
Where tolerance is very rare, 
Still I dare to dream!
A common cause, a joining hands, 
A sharing I have seen,
When man will love his fellow man,
Because I dare to dream!
Shock, revulsion, dreadfulness,
Evils yet unseen,
A river of tears still to flow,
And still I dare to dream!
Togetherness will win the day,
Bring an end to the selfish scheme,
Man, once lost, will find a way,
When the many dare to dream!

Masks

Masks.

Fingers,
clawing at my face,
slipping beneath the facade,

tugging, tearing, flailing,

stripping off the veneer,
exposing the fragmented decay,
cloaked,
under this mask I wear today.

Hands,
groping for another layer,
embroidered on my thin skin,

peeling, rotting, searing,

shaving away the truths,
entwined in a jagged kiss,
revealing,
the vacuum of an emotional abyss.

Fleeing,
from myself yet again,
bound for nothingness,

desolate, cold, empty,

lost on barren pathways,
bruising my heart as I tread,
shuddering,
at the horrors that lie ahead.
