NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 12

Shadows

Grab a phantom
I do not know because
I know too damn well
That I will need safe passage
As I travel through shadows
Sharpening their teeth
Against my reality
Twisted up in
The ruins of my energy
Leaving me shredding apart
As I travel through shadows
Wanting me for their very own
Not ready to go home after all
Hope strung on delicate threads
I wove from my hair cascading
Like dew over the lands
While I seek a phantom
I do not know

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 11

Carve

Carve out a soul
Of your own despise
While the rain pours
Crimson and cold
Into snow it swirls
Aching with its lust
For another day
Everlasting on whiskey’s
Inhale to hide secrets
In the ruins of bones
Charred and broken
Waiting to carve more
Than a comatose memory
Of revisions incompletely
Carve out a soul
Of your own demise

NaPoWriMo 2021 – Day 10

Priceless

Drown in the black holes
Circling your priceless counsel
Lock down and lick poison
Friendlier than this passage
Where we hold hands to keep
Our heads above water
Water we cannot tread
Nor quench our growing thirst
As we silently give way to
Drown in black holes
Circling your priceless counsel

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
