NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 17

Succumb

Have we succumb
Madness on wrong sides
Of a shotgun promise
Redemption never to come
Only licks of insanity
Deserters choosing bullets
Choosing sides that have not
A name to claim
While we succumb
Madness on wrong sides
Of a shotgun lurking

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 16

Whiskey

Cannot seem to swallow
You down no matter
The amount of whiskey
I drown myself in
Departure bringing me to
Knees I didn’t even know
Still existed been so long
Since sorrow had come along
To force me into kneeling
An attempt to cope with
The pain of loss
Cannot seem to swallow
You down no matter
The pain you brought to
My being soaked in whiskey
Far too many laments
I did fashion from tatters
Of my bedsheets twisted
Their agony apparent as
My own while I choke
Cannot seem to swallow
Your memory down no matter
The amount of whiskey
I drown you in
A feeble attempt to bury you
Deep inside so I
Don’t have to feel
To know the nature
Of your loving on my skin
I want to flay in strips
So I opt for falling
Into a bottle of whiskey
I cannot seem to swallow

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 15

Creation

Breathe life into this creation
Gasp on sea water losing
Control while adrift
Clean and pure in clarity
Of the seven seas leading
It on in Death’s demons
Opening up the sores
Seeking a new cure to
Breathe life into this creation
Gasp on salted blood losing
Control while adrift
Victim and saint in clarity
Of the seven seas leading
It on in Death’s behest
Opening up the agonies
Seeking a new result to
Breathe life into this creation

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 14

Tossing Stars

Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away
Into my arms insincere of
Their intense devotion
Fickle at best we do kiss
Through shadowed veils
You cannot explain the difference
Though I did ask more than once
More we strive to be something
To everything and nothing at all
Even friends we are not
Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away
Into my voice’s growls dying
To break free from prisons
Stars only lashed it to
Covering up and lifting it up
An offering to gods that spat
On its very notion of being
Tossing stars over my shoulder
To make oceans fall away

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 13

Thorns

Build a wall around
Flowers and blood
Mind the thorns
Piercing my thoughts
Giving them nightmares
They cannot shake
Loose into wilted
Atmospheric black metal
Cover up their wails
Guttural deceptive
A glimpse of me
Out of time’s timing
Second guesses and
Swear I am sober
Throwing my hands
Come up with thorns
From flowers and blood

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day Off

The Anubis being cute on the sofa.

 

Had an emergency tooth extraction yesterday late morning so not in a writing mood today. The headache pressure is intense. Anubis isn’t a very good nurse though. He just wants attention all the time, cares not for my discomfort.

NaPoWriMo 2019 – Day 11

Storms

Storms coming as I kneel
Before an altar only seen
With my hallowed eyes in dream
Candles flickering as flowers
Winds bring a tune of dance
Upon these miseries driven to
Solace by thundering drums
Heralding storms’ intentions
Along lines of my athame
I kneel inside of delicately
Before an altar only seen
With my disappearing eyes in dream
