The land is covered in Winters snow. Springs flowers sleep quietly below. The Sun stirs them with his glow. Soon Springs beauty will start to grow.
I am surrounded by the night Dark and foreboding, crushing me, Tempting me to run, to break away Every whisper is a scream Pounding in my brain Every star is a pinpoint of pain Scattered across the sky like Shining reminders of the past Howls of wolves scream my rage Sending shivers through my spine An overwhelming urge to scream Cripples me, I cry out into the night Yet no one hears my screams My chest pounds, I break into a cold sweat I run like a madman, no direction No purpose except escape. Hear me! Help me! I stumble and fall Down into darkness, down into quiet Down into…
Another page in my life turns. Freedom within my soul burns. Towards the sky I raise my arms. Thank you for keeping me safe from harm. The wind blows softly upon my face. The glow of the moon is your embrace.
Is there anything left inside? Anything left to feel? I said, ‘I’m fine’, but I lied. Pain is the only thing that’s real. How much more must I feel alone? How much longer must I cry? The very soul of me is gone. Conquered by days gone by.
Carved faces with sickly grins, Hello children, come on in. A night of screams, a night of dreams All is never what it seams. Candy bags heavy, weigh them down. Ghouls and witches race through town. Predators lurk, be careful little trolls… Monsters may be hiding behind candy bowls. Stay on the sidewalk, no running away… and you may live to see the next day. No short cuts through alleys, through parks, through wood, Listen my children and do what you should! Stay safe, stay warm…you too my teen! And remember to have a safe Halloween.
Once upon a moonlit night, I was awakened with a fright. A noise was heard beyond my door, A raven knocking…Nevermore? I stumble around full of fear, What is this sound that I hear? A ghoul, a burgler, a fool, a sprite? It is my dog, to my delight.
All my life I’ve walked alone down thorny paths of broken stone. No one to hear my silent screams. No one to see my broken dreams. I’ve always held my head up high without a thought of days gone by. My tears contained within a cage, my soul poured out upon a page. These words you read explain my life. I’ve cut myself open with a knife. I’ve bled for you to feel the pain. I’ve bled for me to keep me sane. So take these words into your heart. Trust that I won’t fall apart. I’ll stand up tall without a crack because Ive beat those demons back.
You speak to me without a sound My arms are tied, my hands are bound Emerald light that draws me in My soul breaks free of mortal skin. I’m lost within your soft green space I open my eyes to your souls sweet face I fall into your welcome escape and watch two forms become one shape.
Within Mother Earth thy feet do rest. Thy arms do touch the sky. Thy shell passed winter winds test and within thy core life does lie.
In the realm of smoke and mist, a maiden searches for true loves kiss. From lips of a fairy, soft as a breeze, she falls in love beneath the trees. His eyes emerald green, his hair like the night. His gaze made her innocent soul take flight. They lay together beside blue crystal streams and talked about their hopes and dreams. His to be mortal, hers to be his neither happy with what is. To cross the veil she’d have to lose her life, the thought of this filled her with strife. All her family would be gone. If this didn’t work, she’d be all alone. She would give it…
