Death of a Writer

Wasn’t it your voice, where did it go Lost in the noise, overwhelming echo The past becomes a melancholic musical Somewhat unusual to see you gone It’s now your funeral   Between disappearing and deceased The feeling is still mutual Sadness for the loss of something beautiful Words can’t express, […]

A Walk in The Dark (Act II)

Peeling bark and newborn cries Concealed in the shame of her lies Screams Far off the wolves howl high Into the moon new life nigh Bloody Messes of her life she still tries To no avail fails, a roll of the die Murder Hands hold cold corpses twin lives Sink […]

A Walk in The Dark (Act I)

Skin sheen glisten in the moonlight Soft dove no peace uptakes flight Leaves Forest flourish orchids in the night Darkest beasts hide fear holds tight Fallen Porcelain maiden white dress with skin light Tears fall blurr ponds both eyes lose sight Never Escaping feelings those who lose the will to […]
