To be lost amidst a landscape of hill and dale
Staring up at oceanic skies awash with foaming cloud
To be caught in the rainstorm and laugh it off
And be glad of deserted liquidity
Where unfamiliar becomes familiar
And twisted trees instead contort as dancers
Be it sun or snow, rain or shine
Cool lakes of pooling colours mirroring the dawn
I would say to you, my dear friend
That you are not lost, but finally found
The landscape flexes
Shivers down mountainous spine
Halloween does near
SHE gave birth to a monster. There was no denying, no disputing the fact it was a cold, hard truth.
We’d all known it, of course. I think that even SHE had resigned herself to the fact long before IT was born.
I’d done my best to help with the birth, as no doctor would go near HER. Who’d deliver a child with red skin and horns in the making, certainly no practitioner in his right mind.
That was the problem with marrying a Demon; they begat more Demons. But, I suppose SHE could say the same of me. After all, we were a marriage made in Hell.

In neon they swim
Tiny flashes of electric blur
Bringing light to the depths
Bringing hope to others who would feast on them
Angels in miniature
So silent, so small
They fall as blazing snow through obsidian
And hold me in raptures
In neon they hang
Illuminating the sin of the city
Beacons to those who require them
They buzz and fuzz and annoy
Glare and advertise and sell
Unnatural, they break up the dawn
And I feel like I shall never be rid of them
Yet the same
The night speaks to me with a tongue turned black.
Dampened, as though in a fog, it whispers.
I hear indistinguishable sounds, but the message is clear,
‘You will not see another day.’
I am taunted, teased by echoes of storms in waiting.
The darkness congeals and my body convulses,
But I am unwilling to succumb.
I will not succumb.
And though I cling to an intangible wish,
I know that dawn will soon break
And the night shall be banished.
At least, for a time.
Yes, for a time.
Wasn’t it the best
Wasn’t it so true
Did you really feel
The way I felt for you
Did your heartbeat flutter
Did it skip a beat
Before the day that you
Crushed me beneath your feet
Wondrous light of fracturing night
Does shine on me through beauteous light
To seal the holes in porous heart
Where life dissolves to fall apart
And seal the wounds from twisted minds
I apologise if you deem unkind
But so few in humble eyes
Value the gift we call our lives
