Those Who Prey

Far beneath the frozen ground
Lie tombs of mortal men
Beneath their graves
Much farther down
Reside the pits of sin
For those who prey on innocence
Existing for the day
When yet another succumbs to
Their odd and dreadful way
Of adding pallor to the flesh
That once was pink and pure
Removing sparks of innocence
From eyes soft and demure
Injecting poison from a bite
As faces gaunt and hollow
Hypnotize defenseless minds
Drifting as they swallow
Every drop of their life's blood
Then tearing souls away
Chaining them to broken dreams
Of teardrops and dismay
Swirling as they dance about
In ballrooms fit for kings
Where fingertips of death point out
They don't deserve a thing
No they don't deserve a thing

Of Flesh

Of flesh and blood and bone am I
With sacred breath this vessel filled
Descended from the heights to die

Born to live and too soon I die
This mortal soul that is strong-willed
Of flesh and blood and bone am I

Preordained from realms on high
Until my seasons are fulfilled
Descended from the heights to die

I shall ascend yes I shall fly
To burst into incandescent gild
Of flesh and blood and bone am I

In that moment’s splendor I
Shall be inclined to float so thrilled
Descended from the heights to die

Neither pain nor tears to cry
Within soft velvet night instilled
Of flesh and blood and bone am I
Descended from the heights to die

Where Evil Came

The muted lips of those who trust
Do not bear witness in disgust
Of the wicked and the damned
Who attack with brute demands
They sit in silence and dismay
In empty closets where they play
In corridors with just one light
They dare not fathom in their plight
To reach the cord that is too high
For their legs to jump and try
And so they wander all alone
Far and away they softly roam
In their attempt to find release
Gently rocking for some peace
Though rolled into a tiny ball
The captor sees while even small
And brings a pain that is so deep
They cut and bleed so it may seep
From a deep wound inside a soul
That is a large and gaping hole
Where evil came to take away
To enter in and always stay
To enter in and always stay

This Minute

You are my darling
And the author of my smile
My sweet Prince Charming
Come sit with me awhile
And listen to the dreams
I’ve held for all these years
Oh they fly by it seems
The happiness and tears
Of loving to be living
Inside of your embrace
So blessed to reminisce
On the memories of your face
Each one fills me with bliss
I wonder if you know
How beautiful you are
To the one who can’t let go
Of your gentle hand
As you depart to make your way
I find it hard to accept
That I can’t see you every day
For all the tears I’ve wept
It seems I weep a hundred more
And this woman can’t be kept
From crying that’s for sure
Yet tears are for the strong
I’ve found this to be true
They are a healing balm
When I am missing you
They cleanse me of the pain
Of this void I feel inside
Sometimes they fall like rain
My darling I can’t hide
The fact that I need you
Every single minute
And this minute is so blue
When you’re not right here in it

I am standing here confounded
By the queen before a throne
That I so wish to vanquish
And reclaim for my own
I can’t seem to understand
The words that she has said
Do they come from her
Or the voices in her head
I’m teetering on eggshells
Afraid that they will break
Queasy from the bad smells
That make my stomach ache
I’ve found her words are tainted
With disparaging untruths
It seems I’m unacquainted
With the unknown sleuths
Who’ve gathered on a bangle
She wears around her arm
And I’m the one she dangles
As if I were a charm

No Never

No never have I
Attempted to make you cry
I wished to love you
Rather than dash all your dreams
That was never in my plans

Dream Lover

I want to lie in bed tonight and dream again of you
To feel the bliss of your warm breath so soft against my skin
As your sweet voice repeats the words that I have longed to hear
You’ve captured me my lover in the pleasure of your kiss
You know each and every single place that thrills me
Oh you know me
Mmm I rise to greet each fine distinction of your tender touch
I realize just how much you know me yes you do so much
I’m tangled in your web all night as you drain me of my passion
Devouring all my energy with all that naughty action
If only I could see your eyes
Hmm, the color of your hair
The contours of your face
But they are never there
My dark lover
