sleep paralysis III (01/03/2023)

if I stare at the roof long enough
would i let it's ink
roll down over me ? 

my shape, pliant and waiting and 
rutting
tilting toward the certainty 
the cooing touch and strain
spreading stygian weight 
pressing down, down, and do...wn

coy and waiting with glistening teeth
brushing, roiling voice 
weight like a purring cinderblock
hands, too many to be real 
too deft to be human

Despair

Thunder roars through the empty halls

Lost, forbidden, in the dreams of the dead

Desolation descends to answer the call

Of petulance, compunction and dread

 

The horror of the night, haunts the moon

As it shines on the blackness of life

Earth disembowelled by all it consumes

Distorting truth, fouling Gods paradise

 

Death reigns hard, as love is defiled

His cloak b...

Black Cupboard

it makes me sweat even now

such sheer terror left its mark

there's nothing worse than a

child imprisoned in the dark

 

she'd blame me for being bad

I'd struggle but to little avail,

hoisted in the black cupboard

dusty, warm, beyond the pale

 

bent in two and scared of mice

heard her laughter downstairs

something tickling my shoulder

the silk touch of spider's...

Fusion

He was hardly without vice

Beat women, blew cocaine

He was a true black genius

We won't see his like again

 

Hear the album Jack Johnson

Paean in a universe of black

The travails of a champion

Ring-craft his violent knack

 

Johnson brushed with cops

Neither of them were saints

Human pixels amid the mix

In the picture destiny paints

 

The albums are his ...

Gaslight

Blackened eyes reflect the venom 

That burned beneath your veins. 

Acrid breaths, defend the lies

Of a life you soiled and stained

Conceited smile to manipulate a fool, 

To bend and shatter the goodness. 

Masquerading as Hope,

Disguised as love

Defiled the light to sadness

 

Left stumbling for air

Left needing a heart

Left broken, left consumed, left abandoned

24 Carat

Waking up newly in love

Is there a more lyrical thing?

Mind focused on the one

Destined to wear your ring

 

Dawns depend on your mood

Roseate when things go well

Blue if you're feeling anxious

Black if you're living a hell

 

Rising slowly in sickness

Racked by aches and pains

Life teeming with negatives

Griefs but no sign of gains

 

Dawns depend on your...

Duality Dissected

Sometimes black and white become one. 

Gods omnipresecence is seen, white dancing across black. 

Morning comes from night. 

Day breaks and lights the dark. 

Half the world is light, while the other half is dark.

In the dance of shadows, white light reflects colors on dark night. 

Prisms take white light and reflect colors on black night. 

White light, dark night.

Colour - Black

Although you are

in essence an absence

you are always deliberate,

mysterious and silent,

a shadow following,

a shade from the sun,

impression gives colour

but you remain intact

with none.

GREY BLACK NIGHT

 

THE GREY BLACK NIGHT

 

The grey leaden sky covers the land casting a shadow over this sombre place.

Shadows leap from every tree and boulder until they seem to dance

everywhere you look.

Trees stand in stark silhouette against the sky, the wind makes them sway

and creek like skeletal limbs askew.

This is the gothic night of the beautiful colour of grey.

Hampstead Heath

Black crows and a white stone

symbols of eternity

and our small life flows

somewhere noone knows

with or without dignity
