Grey Silk

Grey silks weave 


with no succour for the soul 

flames lick,ascending 

no desire for knowledge

no awareness of heat

or holy cleansing   


The flame never new

of pain or purification 

of devoutness or death 

of heresies or belief 

just that,what was

is now what is

It was,it was not,

it existed as nothing

Eluding creation 

unseen, unheard,


Veiled in darkness 

present,by absence

It was, it was not

before the beginning;

then into existence 

and after the end

Hidden in the eyes

Of the gods

Red Window

Opaque face, 

gilt with the art of lust

desire used,

a product to consume

When lips smile,

as the grin swallows 

an  inch at a time,

the palpable loss 

to the soul

From sentient being 

to the cut price of flesh

Trick for the wheel, 

tolls for the pleasure

Bare to the world

Two sides to the pane

Eyes at your window 

Gilt with the art of lust.

His Demise


emptied him of time

as the solid drains

Ephemeral moments 

lose passage 


Beneath his boots 

fissures crack,his

monuments crumble

new shoots climb

to his demise 

his old coat worn

to be hung

Upon the new

to sieve heartbeats

for their precious

From winters bleary 

eye you stir

To wake from slumber;

Of nature earth

To breathe as mist

on this first spring morn;

To awake the land 

that in torpors gip,

has lain this winter past 

And with your breath;

life is borne

To this bleak and somber land

With running sap and;

Bursting bud to;

Rouse the promised land

I see no face,of moon


a different angle shines 

as seas of green push

white cap surf

to reflection in my eyes

to hear the sounds

that pull the the waves

from shells

to listening ears

as in the sand

beneath my feet

the ripples disappear.

When the wall falls

into your head 

Lost In the rubble

of a broken mind

Debris collate 

Misshaped, malformed,Into

hideous creatures of self malign;

intent on destruction

Of your beautiful mind

Like Eve

From what space did you fall

Like eve into eden

As sudden as it was

It seemed to pass forever;

Into reams of dreams

Lasting like an ocean 


In the cool blue of your eyes

I taste 

the forbidden apple

In the beat of my hart

The blood red

stab of desire

The stone of time

It is all as stone

As the shadows pass

Withering to the new 


For forlorn wishes have

ripened into empty hands;

emptied of futures worth

A passage back to the forgotten 

So they may think anew 

With wit and guile to triumph 

To carve their day in stone.

The path lay 

Nowhere special 

Leading to steps 

that descended 

A wall lined ally


Paved with warmth;

Life lay basking 

Absorbed in the walls

like the warmth 


I left a memory 

Still living

Edge the hog

I’m edge the hog

been running the road

dodging the rubber

on the darkest of roads

Seen many a good hog,die;

laid flat to the road

for getting the red eye

while running the road. 

Maybe I’m unhinged

adrenaline,drug king

but dodging the rubber

Pilgrims Choice

Heaven come

take me from this road

It runs too straight and narrow 

For I do view the distant light;

Further away from me

So hear my voice and feel my plight 

from this endless path I follow

For a pilgrims choice I have made

So can I die tomorrow

As the crow flies

Fate casts the die

As the crow flies

in my mind

The world meanders 

towards my fall

To where;

Grey Moon

I feel his hungriness

in me

away from the sun

his strength of desire

in the distance we run

seeking horizons

away from the light

like shades in the darkness

in the greys of moonlight 

I live in his eyes

in his ways of the night

as he bays to the moon

I prey for the light

I prey for the end

on this darkest of nights

I prey for an end

to this wolf in m...

As the stairs twisted steeper

deeper into the prefect black

He filled his eyes with darkness

To see beyond the light


He walk with no conceptions 

And found to his discontent 

The darkness that he walked in

Was the absence of his life.

Dead Anger Haunts


Then there they where       

Twisted emotions,stretched

Thoughts,push through veins 

nerves frayed,edges blunt

as we fumble for words;into 

silent moments.

We speak as strangers

though veins throb

as tension hangs

Breaths held; as we

wade into hopelessness 

Dead anger haunts 

our absent faces

Empty eyes that look away

The lamp stood,distant


Its monotonous hum,

coalescing to

the sounds of the night

It’s arched neck protruding 

Casting sodium light onto

a still monochrome of life

Thoughts are drawn 

like moths to the light 

To flutter vainly 

In the still monochrome 

The hum of the night

Sound in the silence

The sound crept alone 

unheard In the absence

Aware of its own being 

It ran

Like the peeling of a bells

Resonating through

Felt but unheard 

Loud with the pain

Absorbed with thoughts

Silent to others

Without empathy
