Mass Grave

For the nightmare of all dreamers

And of a monster’s dream,

Meant to murder all your townsfolk

Lured alone to the scene,

The disaffected stars are gone

In the places no one’s ever been. .

(or, in that case, will never be again)
Tried but true,

Blamed and bruised.

We may know the difference

Between love and abuse,

But walls come up

And walls crash down

And dirt is thrown over

The residents of town.

Clouds of Grey

A house is not a home 

For the images of storms reborn in scorn.

I wake in the mornings to say

Fuck not again.

The sun is gone when

Clouds are always seeping 

Through the fringe.

The darkness and

The silence

Insist they are my friends.

There are no rules when

It winds down to

Someone’s end.

I close my eyes and die

Repeatedly again.

Twisted Writhing Igneous Newborns

I SAY TO YOU,
DEMONS AND DEVILS
AND SUCCUBI AROUND,
DARKEST ENTITIES OF ALL THE REALMS,
I AM OPEN TO YOU.
I INVITE YOU INTO ME
AS I HAVE MOVED THROUGH YOU.
THERE ARE MILES OF EMPTY SPACES INSIDE
IN WHICH FOR YOU TO COMFORTABLY ABIDE.
DEMONS AND DEVILS AND DARK ENTITIES ALIKE,
I’M NOT AFRAID.
I HAVE OPENED THE DOOR.
THE HOURS SPLATTER AS THEY HIT THE FLOOR.
NOTHING LIVES IN ME ANYMORE.

I hear your sound.
I have been lurking and I know your smell.
As we have been watching.
And Silently plotting.
Darkness and cold and places to hide.
As we enter, so we abhor.
And what does the raven say? Nevermore.

Casket

Misery’s afoot
And she’s slinking through doors.
I try to retreat
But my curtain
Doesn’t reach the floor.
There must be
A place for all this pain.
It hides
Within me
Memorizing my name.
That old tattered
Chest black as ages at best
Has swept through
The years and found me in here.
Is it
Within me or do I
Hide within?
Is it
The darkness
Or am I
Full of sin?
Fuck.
There’s no place
Left for empty spaces.
I
Am no being
Only emptiness weaving.

Hope is gone.
Days are long.
Someone tell me
I’m wrong.
The ages
Are years
Only fueled
By tears.

I never suggested it didn’t exist.

In my mind
You’ll never find me.
Carry provisions
To keep you alive.
Meet the wild dark hatred
That leads deep inside.
In my body
The monster’s the mind
And there’s no hope
That escape will be found.
In my mind
A warm heart dies
And loneliness lives
Entwined in the vines
Of the labyrinth,
No center.
No way in or out.
I’m lost to you and
My final light
Is this poem
Which I’ll burn
If only to keep warm
For a moment.

Sorry old lies owe penance straight into sunlight’s madness.

Dead
Like a stone
My screams are whispers
And my heart is alone.
(No choice but to cry.)
A life of abuse
Becomes my truth
And stole my humanity
Within this cage I’ll never
Escape.

There’s no rest for the mind that’s been shattered.
There’s no retrieving the pieces that scattered.
As if the thought of it even mattered.

There’s no light from the deep
There’s a maze of darkness in me
And solipsism’s all I believe.

Infrasound

My heart lies empty on the bathroom floor.
My mind can’t stand the light anymore.
It illuminates my darkest places.
I am gone.

My world reduced to piles of ash
And no one bothers to stop and ask
“How are you doing Johnny?”
I’m gone. Thanks for asking.
My loneliness in darkest poetry
makes infrasound of songs.

New Light, New Life

There is a light
That lives inside
My heart.
It lights my way.
It discerns my eyes
Between night and day.
Something that’s right
Within my sight,
I no longer must fight
To keeps the darkness at bay.
I know this time
And for always
It’s gone to stay.
It’s gone to stay.
Goodbye to the night.
Goodbye to the cold.
A warmth has moved
Inside my soul.
No longer scared.
Just forever aware.
I’ve finally changed.
I’m finally there.

Astray

Innocuous faults slip sideways down cooler springs.
Remembrance of thoughts slide headlong to deeper dreams.
It’s not the same,
When yesterday could have torn open its fray.
Things always change,
When head and heart find each other astray.
Lost is the name.
With a darkness so ingrained
And a heartache so deep,
The cracks in the walls
Are lined up to repeat
Dreams.
The meadowlark sings on her weary heartstrings.
Change.
The walls of the sick man forever deranged.

The Trees

It may be sunny but
There’s something dark out there.
I’ve smelled it in the bushes.
I’ve heard it in the trees.
Your trusty compass
Won’t work out there.
It will turn you all around.
It will only mislead.
Stay away from the forest
If you value your days.
Your darkest monsters will encroach
And turn your world to blackest maze.
