Decipher

The flowers bloom wider their scents enchanting
The birds sing sweeter their notes beguiling
The sky is bluer my days are brighter
The night is darker the stars they glimmer

The whistling breeze it whispers
The warm sun it pampers
The terpsIchore carries a message
Verified upon gazing at your visage

It exists at the edge of reason
Enciphered in the seasons
In a while longer, the code must crack
Emerging from the deepest black

Dermis

When I contemplate your person
I lose concentration
Because all thoughts of longing
Becomes senations of yearning

When my hands touch your skin
It seeks to transmit my stirrings wthin
To grasp your flesh beneath the fabric pressed
Your waist, your bosom, carressed
The feel of my grasp shoots lightning to my core
A rigid growth promises a whole lot more

I my mind we are clad in naught but air
On your form I can't help.but stare
I close the distance to to plant kisses
As i explore you here are no misses

In our embrace joins lock and key
Going deeper to set you free
To let lose your goddes within
To come to me and reward this win

I pull you close and breathe your air
We go to places we know not where
You ride your waves pleasure and call to me
Benaeath the.motions the oceans refresh me

Come my.lady, hurry.
My wand's magic is at the ready
Oh rapture sublime when the spell releases
Catch me in your arms with gentle kisses

Sublime Common

To summit was quite the climb
The vantage was quite the view
A taste of omniscience
I saw far beyond
I saw past folly
My horizons far distant
All knowledge in an instant

In my tower of wizardry
All magicks were mine
Conjuration and alchemy
Prestidigitation and sorcery
Away from all things mundane
Untainted by the inane
Solitude sharpened me
Study made all things for me to see

In my cave I could divine
All secrets that would be mine
The voice of the universe with my mind conversed
Adept at prose or verse

But after clarity, there was nothing
After precision, no decision,
could be made that could show me joy
                despite the faculties I employ
The mundane, the naïve have no burdens of knowing
Knowledge offered no power for averting
                futility
Down at the valley, the lilies are near
It is outside the tower that rainbows appear
Among the serfs and rabble, magic exists raw
Among stones and gravel among mortals I saw
There is greatness in the grass, in falling petals, and shattered glass
There is beauty that defies my ken
And to futility my soul I open.

Entropy's Revenge

Structured strength slips
Rusty reinforcement rips
Scaffolding of my life gives way
Skeleton then upholding now decays

Purpose has been outlived
Reasons ill-conceived
All intents at permanence
Degrades to effervesence

What's built to last
Has been undone
Thrust has lost
Gravity's won

What's gone up has indeed come down
In this vacuum I scream and make no sound.

Apart


Between three walls of stone and three of wood

I find myself alone with out you
But yet hope lies in this moonlit night
With winter's chill in the air
Because though your presence is not before me
Somehow I feel you there

This thing I hold in my hand and lean my head against
Is my only link,my mystic chain, my thread by which I feel connected
I speak, and as if by magic you hear me and I hear you
And though your hand I hold not in mine
Know at least my heart is thine

I wish I have your face before me now rather than my reflection
But I see I 'd rather have you here in my arms
I'd rather have you here with me

No flowers I have for you
Pauper that I am
No sweets or trinkets for which I should have saved
But yet I know despite this empty purse
The treasure which is you, I save
I wish, (and if I may have my wish)
I wish to rectify
This thing before my eyes
I hope upon the next feast of hearts that comes
That I, can do more than oohhs and uhms.

I wish my mouth was close to your ear
To let you hear
Not just hear
But feel the words that leave my mouth
But here is all that we have
For the moment
And, I'm here away
A bit down south
Fret not my love I labour
To make things go our way
Our challenge, thoughts and arms not waver
Until you're here and I'm there-- To stay

Hometown


I suddenly find myself in a place I thought I'd never find again
Like returning to a familiar place but changed

Some shops are gone and street names new
Some houses torn or built anew

In my walk I find a cozy hole in the wall
It’s a place not there before
I find myself at home immediately
Enjoying myself immensely

I once left this town thought I’d never come back
But this unexpected find beckoned me, stay

Betty

When gamma rage needs fulfilling
When adrenaline through the veins are coursing
No flight just fight
No right just might
There’s no choice in what I do
When my skin takes a verdant hue

No reasoning with the beast
I will not cease or desist
Destruction is my call
I would destroy it all

To try and stop me is obvious folly
Not with bullets nor gas nor cannon volley
Go on and leave me be as I muck about
Let the anger take its course and the rage burn out
When the wrath subsides my strength will leave me
When the monster leaves then you can kill me
Avert the rampage yet to come
Or I return as Armageddon, your kingdom come

Neither bombs nor armies can hope to stop me
Not reason, nor diplomacy
Nor shall guile and cunning, can stop you from running
Neither gambits nor bribery

Only beauty, real beauty will pacify
Only Betty dear Betty can clarify
The troubled mind the stirring heart
Her face shall be my sleeping dart
Her gentle voice stops my fists
And I do crumple with her kiss
I cannot hurt her and I know not why
She makes the raging monster cry
That titan, that monster that brutish Hulk
Is made to stop and sit and sulk
My gentle Betty just lets me be
And succeeds to bring out the man in me

Override

Lockdown initiate
Secure the inventory
Bolt the door, lock the gate
Tighten security

Passkey encrypted
Clearances restricted
Existence is need to know
Knowledge top secret
Traces deleted
No risk of covers blown
Override


No one allowed
Knowledge disavowed
In vaults in bunkers deep
My secrets are hidden
All records are stricken
They won't see the light of day

One agent one operative is allowed through the barrier
One agent one operative in the loop in the know
One agent one operative, unrestricted undenied
Only one command - override.

Moment

If all I'll have with you is now, I'll take it.
I'd rather have this moment than spend forever contemplating.
If all we have together is tonight let's have it
I'd rather have one night than be forever aching

I don't know if we have forever
I've lost forever once before
But I'd rather have you now than never
You're all I want and nothing more

When I stare in your eyes they drown me
As I look into infinity,
Your every breath takes mine away and captures me
Be my guard in this captivity

When were together, that's forever
We're locked in our own time
When we're together, I feel forever
Enraptured in our love sublime

It Begins

When care becomes a chain
When love becomes a pain
When everything I am has become not me
When life through another's eyes you see
You lose perspective you lose sight
You lose self in another light
Every choice requires approval
Every failure a removal

I'll have no more of the bejeweled shackle
Remove this gold from my ankle
Remove this ring from my finger
I am yours no longer

Today I celebrate the return of mirth
It is no longer by you that I measure my worth.
I am a genie from the lamp wished free
I'm a celebrant and my surprise I now see
So many possibilities and so much time
So many pleasures and they're now all mine
I barely remember when all I wanted was you forever.
This is now and it is so much better.

The Failure of Metaphor

What is there left to look forward to?
What else is in store in a life with you?
Would it be like the first light of day?
Made perfect by the breezy sea spray.
Shall it be like a rainbow after rain shower?r
A gentle show of the sun's power.

Are you the joy of a gift newly opened?
Or the wonder of luck that has happened.
Are you the vibrance of a fireworks display?
Or answer to supplication long prayed?

I dare not compare any of these to you.
For your traits I cannot to things imbue
None can compare, no trope will do
None represents your virtues true

I love to be yours and for you to be mine.
I love how our hands and hearts entwine.
I wish for nothing, not treasure nor siren's song
It is simply for your love that I long.

Faerie

Emergencies dictate the movement
Responses required within the moment
To take what is needed
And rise to the occasion
The call is heeded
No hesitation

The challenges have come
The battle's not done
All weapons released
All bloodlust unleashed
Expect no quarter no reservation
It only gets harder, more tribulation

Disasters fall with no warning
Preparations fail as shortcomings
No wall so strong to withstand the sea
No monolith so lasting as to forever be

I have responded to all emergencies
And spread myself thin in all the urgency
The challenges came and they've been met
But I've not recuperated yet
Disasters came, I've withstood them barely
All resources drained entirely

I'm sorry, this is all I have left to present
Destroyed, depleted, deficient
All I have, all you see
All this is yours, take it -- take me
Use your magic
Redeem the tragic
Reverse the decimation
Grasp the sands
In your hands
Rebuild my shattered vision

One Moon

Alone this night and you’re far away
Whether I whisper or shout, you’ll never hear me say…
You’re there I’m here
Though it’s strange, I feel you near
Will you come quickly, it won’t be too soon
But at least tonight we’re under the same moon

She is perfectly shining and gorgeous tonight
The orb beckons me to bathe in its light
Selene she whispers and tells me gently
From where she is, she sees you, she sees me

So now I look upon that disc in the sky
She told me to look now I see why
Because tonight, for me, she mirrors not the sun’s rays
Tonight for me she reflected your face.

Biometric

In a fancy vault I store it
All the elements kept at bay
In that fancy vault I kept it
Locked away

Not watched over by 50 guards
Or kept under lock and key 
Not locked by code or keycard
But by serious biometry

Sealed more than once or twice
Secured and enclosed by three
An eye, a palm, and imprinted voice
No more mistakes no other choice

Safe secured impregnable
No one's gotten to it but you
You looked at me and touched my face
and said to me you loved me
An eye, a palm, and imprinted voice
Twas you that possessed all three.

Resurface

For far too long I lay out here afloat
A tragic survivor if survivor I be of an ill fated boat
Rations gone, strength has ebbed and hope has drained away
Laid bare on this tiny craft day by bloody day

The elements know not my suffring nor my fate
Or maybe they do for daily they worsen my state
The waves dizzy me, the sun he bakes me the wind chills my core
But from then to now to when I die more pain they have in store

Countless times I pass into sleep each one could be my last
Amidst the sun the wind and waves my doom approaches fast
And so by fates connivance, wind and sea end my defiance
No will or strength left to call, against the fury of the squall

Tossed too and fro is not what happened
-- more like thrown and dashed
One furious capsized my hope
And made splinters of my boat

Under the waves I gasp for air but breathe the sea instead
And it was the icy water that seared pain in my head
With one more stroke I break the water I finally resurface
And one more wave threw me to shore and returned me to my place

I live.

Treadmill

Beads of sweat breaking
Drops forming waiting -- to fall
Ev'ry step a feat
Ev'ry second a beat -- eats away
Running, running in place
Trying, trying to keep pace
Failing, failing to gain ground
Dying, dying with ev'ry bound

Purose I have, but almost forgot
This run this pace is all I've got
I step, I slip, I -----

Disconnect

Had I not been there myself I wouldn't have known
How sensation had flown
 from my heart,my soul
It's absence left a gaping hole.

I found myself unsurprised, desensitized, anesthetized
I saw myself unconcerned, undisturbed, unperturbed
I responded to a call to battle Atropos
She prevailed, I lost

I fought valiantly, my breath for hers my hands on her heart
I gained ground and gave the muscle a start.
The Lady of the Shears redoubled
And I could hear her whispers mumbled
     in my heart and mind
"You have failed, she is mine"

Breath faded, beating ceased
Pupils dilated, the ghost released
I watched as life drained away
But felt no loss, no dismay.

Of course it was my mind and engaged intellect
          that initiated my disconnect
I understood their tears, their loss, their pain
But within, the memory has caused no stain
I have no pain, no pangs, no sadness
But just a plain and echoing emptiness

Boo!

You scowl and project an aura -- dark
You brood, you growl you bark
You bring your pointed teeth to bare
To do what? Was your intent to scare?

You have no idea what it means to fear
It's less about blood and more about tears
No calculation can distill fright
No pigment black can rival night

Will you care to know me my world without colour
Will you know my mind, my horrors
I give fair warning and wish you to see
That my mind is not a good place to be

You pretend and pose to be some kind of devil
Naive little worm, you know not of evil
Do you see now,will you try again, will you dare?
Before me, your trite acting cannot compare

Your demeanor is but Wonderland's Alice
But I am beyond the Jaberwocky's malice
That's it runaway, show your cowardice true
Go before you hurt yourself ---Boo!

Pane

Locked within this empty room
Only one view from this spacious tomb
Nothing but walls of gray
No hint of night or day

In this isolation I'm driven mad
Your presence the only joy to be had
Not often enough to keep me sane
Made worse by the presence of the pane

It's a joy to see you through this glass
This accursed transparent solid mass
All I have is your sight and sound
This pane more obvious when you're around

The pane such a terrible pane
It hinders our contact, it's my life's bane
I long to touch you and kiss your precious lips
But this pane disallows even touching your fingertips

Have I not suffered enough Milady
Shall you still add to this malady
Do you revel to see me time and again
By keeping me imprisoned behind this pane

Tired

rest without refreshment
perked with no energy
sitting still, yet unsettled
unconscious in a dreamless worthless sleep
adrenaline burns like octane
fast, raging but short lived
lethargy haunting in my waking hours
the Sandman wins over caffeine every time
