"Departed"

Whisper softly to me, cradled in the night.

Sweet songs of decadence filter out the light.

Cold death and hollow boxes,

Hidden beneath the ground.

Dancing madly, shrouded in darkness,

Tiny feet make not a sound.

Heavy bodies piled high,

Left in heaps, too torn to die.

Blood escapes in crimson pools.

The ground shimmers with ruby jewels.

Ghosts of decades past emerge,

As creatures of the night converge.

A morbid sound then fills the air,

Though not a sound the living hear.

A black cloaked man with ashen face,

Steps slowly forward to set the pace.

Skeletal maids in cobwebbed gowns,

Step from the shadows in great abounds.

Not a corpse, or soul yet to transcend,

At this macabre dance, does not attend.

A hand stretched forth with shrunken flesh,

The aggregation becomes enmeshed,

And welcomes new, a life expend,

To somber arms, an all-pervading end.

Bare feet upon the graveyard soil,

Our newly dead does release the mortal coil.

And to this one is then endowed,

Eternityís garb, a gossamer shroud.

Pulled against deathís comforting breast,

Our decedent is now laid to rest.

The moon shines down from a starry sky,

The dancers depart as the end draws nigh.

Passing through, with a mournful song,

Dead, or lost, but never gone.

"Arielle"

She walked alone
beneath the moon,
in a gown of emerald silk...
Her hair was wound,
in a crimson crown
and her skin was
made of milk...

Her slippered feet moved
along the silent, sand stone way...
She walked among the garden flowers,
as she eagerly awaited day...

She rested now upon a stone,
set near a lonely shed,
which had never known the living,
for it only housed the dead...

There is no peace to be had
in a garden so full of sorrow...
So silently, in darkness,
she waits until tomorrow...

Shadows moving throughout the night
desperately she prayers for light...

Thoughts of things left undone,
dreams of joys that
never come...

faceless specters haunt her mind,
memories from a forgotten time...

Feverish dreams of forlorn youth,
Nightmares stirring forgotten truth...

The garden glows in the moonlit air,
as she recalls he, who once stood there...

Looking down upon a covered hole,
mourning a child that sleeps below...

Amber light approaches, as the
dark of night is done...

The lady lifts her face to the horizon,
as she tearfully greets the sun...

Her ghost pale flesh ignited,
as the suns sharp rays bite her skin...

What once was is gone now;
our lady shall not weep again...

Crimson tears will fall no more,
as the flames of day embrace her...

She glimpses loves true face,
in a distant place,
as the one who went before,
awaits her...

What once had been is gone,
no more pain of need or lust...

Sweet release has finally found her,
as Lady Arielle, has gone to dust.

"My secret place"

Thereís a place I go to be alone

Where my friends all sleep beneath silent stone

Where the grass is brown and the trees forebode

Where no one ages though all are old

A place where we remain opaque

A place you sleep but never wake

A place I come to vent my fear

Although I know no one can hear

A place where I feel that I belong

Among those who are long since gone

A place where Iíll not be mocked, or turned away

A place where I think I would like to stay

This place is where Iím at my best

A place where I can finally rest

Acceptance here is what I crave

This place is where Iíll make my grave

And hope one day Iíll see

That those who live will visit me

And not forget the love Iíve shown

To those I never met but have always known

But if you never come to see my stone

Do not feel bad for Iím not alone

Iíll be just one more within this place

A forgotten name, a forgotten face

And in this place where I come to roam

Is where Iíve finally found my home

"A Brighter Darkness"

A brighter darkness corrupts me
Resentment grows within my mind
I cannot shake this feeling washing over me
I think I'm running out of time.

Sorrow fuels my hatred
It's so damn dark now I cannot see,
I want to scream in rage and claw my way
Out of the darkness...
What's this power taking hold of me?

I sleep away the hours,
Afraid to face the coming day.
My heart can't take this aggravation,
I don't know what more to say.

Life's become so overwhelming,
There's so much I'm supposed to be...
I have enough to fucking deal with,
so don't you put your shit on me!

I'm falling fast into the darkness
That has seeped into my heart.
The dark of night embraces me,
As your quiet animosity is slowly
Ripping me apart.

The chaos that you leave behind surrounds me
There is nothing more that I can do.
I cannot sink into your darkness,
Despair has placed its icy hands on you.

I will concede to nothing,
No one can ever take control of me.
I am a man of careful deliberation,
A master of my own destiny.

I see the storm that now approaches,
Though itís something I know I cannot fight...
Still, I will find a brighter darkness,
And one day walk into the light.
