Intrigued by the darker perspective. My short observations from the mind and soul bare my fascination with the darkly unique.

Point Blank

Violent crime Held at gunpoint The cold steel of progress Inflicts fear and loathing In her heart and mind Forward momentum Faster than the bullets That load this weapon Quick to bring destruction To the land, sea and air

 

Panic becomes hatred As she faces her tormentor Staring down the barrel Of cruel and greedy intention She finds a way to turn the tide As water from her oceans Brings…

Madman’s Hands

untitled

At the hands of a madman Cultivating a bleak reality From stark raving insanity Wringing dire circumstance From hearts and minds As if from a blood soaked rag Always carrying with him The lightning and thunder Waking us from our slumber Snapping us into his grim world

 

Harvesting darkness from shadows Squeezing color from rainbows Leaving ominous dark clouds To form on every gray horizon Ev…

Styx (Forever Together)

Submerged

Panic stricken defines our victim’s calling Into depths unknown and quickly falling Frantic memories emerge while thinking Pictures painted on a mind that’s sinking She struggles against what she knows best Devils tears torture with promised unrest Darkness so terrifying that it truly burns As a nightmarish reality twists and turns

 

The waters of Styx are bathed in hells fire Set ablaze by…

Colors vibrant within each moonlit night After sundown such beauty to behold Twilight paints life in brilliant light As we wait for life’s mysteries to unfold Tricks on the eyes eternally  played As spirits in the wind come to dance The palette of Mother Nature displayed Through silver light we are held in trance

 

These same things never seen under sun Dreamlike visions disappear at dawn Day…

Simple how change takes place One small gesture from within Pushed outward from it’s impact Reaching points far and wide Decency rides each rolling wave Set free from it’s point of origin Constant motion in all directions Touching all who stand in it’s way

 

Acts of selflessness carry forward On the crests of such gentle swells Peaceful tides calmly washing over Shorelines of most troubling…

Piece Of Me

Here I am taking a chance  on myself once again. I have never shared music before in this arena, but in thinking about my past and the things I miss and the things I never wish to see again, I am compelled to share a song that really captures both in a very dramatic way. The band Savatage has been an inspiration to me for years and this is MY song as it says so much about me.  I hope my written wo

Blue Moon’s Secret (An Epiphany)

The silence of the night is deafening As I find myself reaching for a dream Quietude voices its harsh displeasure As a whisper hidden within a scream I lay here gazing at the beauty above While it illuminates the midnight sky Full and round and without question Emotion conveyed in single tear I cry

 

The solitude of existence confounds As time slows to keep us pondering Meaning of life may…
