So Cold So Alone



Eats 
The Heart 
Has neared 
Completion
The laying 
A terrible bed
Not for rest 
Or refuge  
More terrible 
Than ever 
Imagined 
There is 
No way away 
I must repose 
In the
Bed that has 
Become as 
Burning 
Lies 
Coals lighting
A truth 
Of false 
Trust  
Belief in 
Kindness 
Spreads 
Choking smoke
Concealing 
The flames  
Words of love 
Flutter, soft 
And dark
As silken ashes
More fool 
Am I, to
Repose on 
Burning lies  
Soft coverlets
Of ashes 
Shadows 
On ashes 
Nightly words 
Written 
And sent
In bad faith. 
My hopeless 
Hope
Snugs 
Fiery emptiness 
Close
Morning will dawn 
Cold and true 
While 
Eats The Heart 
Pretends 
Drifting ashes 
And a bed 
Of coals 
Are the comfort
Hidden by
Blowing smoke

So Cold So Alone

Silence of Thorns

No longer 
May I live 
Near human 
People so politely  
Uncaring civilized 
In ignorance I scream 
And cry wailing 
Too much and 
No mirrored image 
Bereft of the Veil 
Some days all nights 
Continuously calling 
Screaming despair 
While writing 
While sewing 
While making love 
While mending
While wandering silent 
Creating reasons
Of disillusioned 
Thinking unacceptable 
While cooking sleeping
Other beings cringe 
Shrinking from 
My broken primal 
Screaming wailing 
Cries follow me 
My own meteor tail 
Of illuminated grief
What will never be  
Yet waves flow 
Rippling eternal
Illusion adorns my
Body as garments
Woven from despair 
Sorrowing siren calls
I may never find the 
Echoing perimeter 
Of pain heartache 
Buzzing louder 
Harmonic pulses
Louder scream song
Enduring in the shouted 
Silence continuously I wail 
Anguish impenetrable
This barrier of Banshee 
Screeching thorns  
.
The Silence of Thorns
