***

the beauty
evaporates
as mist claim
the night
calm waters
turn savage
waves
thunder walks
the sky
with bolts of
light , a fish out
of water
no beaver in
sight , as the
bird saves her
tune

 

***

You blessed the tears in my river
I was drowning and could not fly
You sprinkled musings so that I could see the beauty of my wings… in your eyes
Damn , your eyes washed my streaked face and injested all my tears , restored my faith in love , evaporating all my fears
Damn , your eyes painted my sorrows and lighted me like a firefly , together we are poetry together we shall rise
Damn, your eyes are an open window on a cool spring night , my dreams no longer haunt me your eyes are my sight
Damn , those eyes are my lifeline when I look into them my heart is set aglow , flying high , side by side with beautiful wings of your own

 

***

I can’t see you but I know you’re there , silent footsteps creaking up the stairs
Enemy eyes send a chill down my back , in my own home i cannot relax
Ill close my eyes but afraid to sleep , faceless faces staring back at me
Thankful for sunlight to burn my face , but soon darkness will fall losing the race
Why do you choose to haunt my dreams feeding from the fear and weakening my strength
How do you live so comfortably inside my head spinning with tears and bound for death
Anxiety awaits for the moon to rise shadows of evil when I shut my eyes
I squint and see a rail of a man casting spells bouncing havoc inside the damned
Chanting to myself it’s just a dream , my soul is what you want it seems
Screaming with terror the deeper you swim , I cannot give up you cannot win
Fighting to salvage the fragments left of a life ,with a beaten spirit the minute I became your wife
