NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 9

Brink

The lengths I will go to
Keep you on the brink
Of absolute demise brings
My utter delight in the night
Think I thought I saw
You cry out at the injustice
Of all my ministrations
And I just laughed
Never consider the hows
The paths that converged
To bring you here to my
Cliff side as I push harder
Still to the brink
Then down, down you
Must go after all
Once we lost grip on
What is truth and what
Might be your lies
To keep you alive

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 8

The Light

Break above my knees
Higher up, Your Highness
For I am the light again
Coursing through my veins
Keeping me cold in the
Dead of summertime
Where I lose in revulsion
Broken above the knees
Bones given over to
Your Black Sabbath
How my mortal heart
Refused to bleed out
As I traveled down
Drawing out life beneath
Skin burned in pallor
For I am the light again

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 7

Gold Coins

Gold coins holding
The little things
Precious that I feel
In every song
I play in the rain
Getting quieter as
I float into sleep
Keeping gold coins
In my palms
For safety, to anchor
My dreams to my heart
Even after the world is gone
After I healed this pain
Digging me inside out
Into even more besides
Gold coins holding
The little things
Precious that I feel

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 6

Daze

My head in a daze
As I wake up into
A world I fail to notice
Even as it swirls in rage
Beyond this non-belief
Falling apart against
My legs trapped in a race
With myself and no one
While seconds tick down
And dance for attention
Obliterating thoughts to
Leave nothing more for
My head to ponder beyond
A fruitless daze

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 5

Bitter

Pass me the bitter
Better than waiting
For nothing special
Frozen throughout time
Could not compare
Hearts broken into pieces
Scattered across the universe
Feeling like a little girl
Not wanting to worry
My pretty little head
Yet I am wasting away
These seconds in holding
For more than they could
Give to me in night’s stain
Pass me the bitter
Better than waiting
For nothing after all
