NaPoWriMo Day 20 – Circus

Circus

Only a circus meant for nevermore
Further reaches into the shadows
It went for its sideshow giving way
To purgatory’s childish delight
Led by a psychopath in dance
All around the three rings
Twisting tighter and closer
To the center sway and bow
Only a circus meant for nevermore
Further reaches into the shadows
It went inside the minds giving way
To purgatory’s childish squeals
Led by psychopathic intention
All around the three rings
Twisting tighter and closer
To the center are we in
Only a circus meant for nevermore

NaPoWriMo Day 18 – Worth

Worth

Lifetime worth of words to say
More with each passing day
Shamed by words free from binds
Left to follow behind alone
Bittersweet misery they hold
Without a reason to embrace
Lifetime worth of words to say
Sleeping within my arms
Keeping us from reaching heights
Toward the smirking stars above
And between us on twisted sheets
Long left forlorn, harsh
Lifetime worth of words to say
More with each passing day
Shamed by words free from poison
Left to follow behind alone

NaPoWriMo Day 16 – Kiss Blind

Kiss Blind

The kiss waiting on the crease of your lips
Should be mine but you’ll never
Give it up find ourselves eager
For better times where we are blind
To one another all we sense is a pain
Unspoken always felt in passing
A fluttering kiss upon our essences
Eager to know we’ll never learn to see
Beyond even though I know the kiss
Waiting on the crease of your lips
Should be mine but you’ll choke on it
To spite me for we’re eager for better
Time where we are blind to one another

NaPoWriMo Day 14 – Gossamer

Gossamer

Dream so lonely in darkness
Urge me to break my spirit
Into gossamer stars across the veil
Threaten fall and suffocation
Should I not oblige the break
Keep gossamer stars with my spirit
Never intended to share, for them
To know of existence I kept safe
Do not want to acquiesce
Yet the darkness is ever reaching, lasting
Bends not to my will, only I to it
Dream so lonely in darkness
It gifts unto me as grave remedy
Urge me to break my spirit
Into gossamer stars across the veil

NaPoWriMo Day 12 – Sculpt

Sculpt

He screams my name to draw
Me to his collapsed embrace
Eager to trap me forever
He denies it is true but something
In the way he sculpts his phrases
Against my ears, my lips
Bring doubt as an undercurrent
Something in the way
Between us and forever
Within all he does not say
Sculpt our shortcomings in his image
To trap me forever in an embrace
Without a true future to hold

NaPoWriMo Day 10 – Goes the Winter

Goes the Winter

There goes the winter
With all warmth of him
Leave me cold to wander
Rains threatening death by
River drown should I stumble
Closer than I ever dared
Reluctant to see my future
Just below rapidly moving surface
Fitting tombstone for winter
Saturate frail dream so frail
There goes the winter
As all things I held under
Cracking fists slumbered by
All warmth of him foolishly
Claim it for my own

NaPoWriMo Day 8 – Grey Lullaby

Grey Lullaby

I build you up with stone
In which I carve your name
Stone by stone in finest days
Growing grey with each layer
I bury you under to keep you
Safe from those words I wield
To kill, never harm, act of mercy
Promise to keep my words twisted
I build you up with stone
In which I carve you name
Never a finer script than these
Carvings give warning to pass
Grey lullaby to sing when nights
Give way to a quicksilver moon
Driving back against the horizon
I build you up with stone
In which I carve your name
Stone by stone in your finest days
