O Wanderer

Thine blood, it boils
The horizon knows you
Eternal companion
O wanderer
I know it to be true
Above the winds
That skirt the World’s roof
You wander with unfaltering step
Upon the road unknown
O wanderer
Thine blood, verily, boils.


Dancer of the Dark

She dances into the onyx of night
Stepping where the light is amiss
A silhouette come to life
It begins with a note
Holding her feet up in the air
The tempo falls upon her
Like divine wroth
Yet she, a Jacob of motion
Given to her own passion
Carries on, this dance
So precise, a clockwork ballet
Spinning endlessly
This reverie
Even Satan envies her
Those steps that court madness
May thread upon the weary soul
Who wants nothing more
Than a taste of the sublime
She dances on for no one
But the night
And all the shadows cast
Hands that trace gossamer skin
Feet that step on God’s lustful face
She breathes the rhythm
‘Till her lungs burst
This broken muse
This forbidden art
Call her forth
The unyielding dark.

Eye to Eye

Irreplaceable fragments
Of eternity made flesh and want
Yielding to taut skin
Watch it stretch
Marked by longing
A man stops being a man
He becomes a god
A woman stops being a woman
She becomes a goddess
One moment for him to see
One moment for her to see
It lingers in the pale of their eyes
Sinking unto themselves
Their embrace denied
Its absence is cold
But hark, o ye gods
The brush of twilight beckons
Earth lies in the hush
It listens
And it finds a heartbeat
A warmth that calls forth
From their bosoms
These flames that scorch lies
Leaving truth behind
What is real
He holds her
She holds him
Intertwined they stay
Until the break of time
When all are made divine
As he beats his wings
As she beats her wings
Wind rushes in ecstasy
And nothing else remains.

Lady Cyanide

Lady Cyanide
Poison delight
Lips that kill
Skin peeling
Cold stare
She’s a fright
Suicide desire
Destructive appetite
Touch the night
Killing softly
Painful sweetness
Razor feelings
Lady Cyanide
Damaged soul
Kindred slave
Between your legs
Burn it up
This fetid lust
Kiss kiss kiss
Tainted love
Rotten yearning
Lonely caress
Lady Cyanide
That filthy lie
Can’t quit
Fire it up
Cinder romance
Lick these ashes
Silence binds
Veiled wish
All is pardoned
One last time.
