Shadows of the Heart

Shadows of the heart
They lurk to where it start
Tasting the envy of shore
They split and grow to more
Charged to do desires
Out they flow in spires
Looking to help and defend
Darkness looking to upend
Yet golden and silver they glow
Lighting against the night flow
Hope is their kindling
Kindness their sibling
Tall at the edge of night
To take on darkness in fight
Shadows of things to come
Tamed by where they’re from

Vanish

Out I went one day,
To the world to make my way,
You followed close at first,
But then weather got worst,
You wanted bright my future to be,
And sent best wishes to me,
So one day I made my way back,
But again you lost my track,
My appearance had changed,
Or maybe my style was exchanged,
You sought for me still,
Now it was against my will,
Things left best in the past,
You lost interest at last,
It was then me you could see,
Out in the world to where I flee

Varelle

Seek Varelle for your reward
Keeper of the glen and fjord
Rely on her to guide your path
Ease your fear of beastly wrath
If you choose to walk this way
Mind the cost you will pay
It takes time and patience
And wears on ones relations
Yet walk along and offer in kind
Leave none to suffer behind
Beware doubts that may defeat
It is a path slow and replete

My love

In your darkest hour
Creep thoughts dour
Why I always come to you
Despite perception I shouldn’t do
Fail at these times to see
What your love means to me
Happiness in my morning wake
Fondness of memories make
Comfort in hours on end
Love that never seems to upend
I seek a smile on your face
If not also a long embrace
Nothing else I can ask of
You are my wife and love

Come Along

Come with me on a journey
To lands far and wide
Come out of your shell with me
Learn not to worry of pride
Come see through eyes
Wonder not where to hide
Come and watch a world rise
And wonder where to reside
Come now, it has no demise
When you are by my side
Come now into my arms waiting
Where love for you does abide
Come with me no more debating
Let us, to the future ride

Apathy

It was there in my place
When I saw you trace
Lines that intersect and divide
Words that make me choose a side
In spite speech with spark and fire
It was uncertain where it did aspire
If the goal was action
It failed to gain traction
The want was complacent
Conspiring for more effacement
In hopes and cares
And let you be with your affairs
Apathy our greatest foe
Helplessness its final blow.

One wet day

On a cold wet afternoon
It was asked if it would be soon
The reply was a not yet
And no further answer will you get
Further it was said
By words flowing from my head

It is easier to ask than sit and wait
Sometimes worse is the anticipate
Bide your time not in worry
At the end we lose our hurry
Yet once it has done
We miss the fun
Nothing has changed at all
And all we do is feel small

Sit once and a while
Dream of something to do in style
Are you off to change the worlds pace
Or bring a smile to a neighbors face
Find joy in the action at hand
There is no requirement to make a stand
Leave the world better
And its eyes not wetter

Games with Death

Idonya Idonya spin your wheel
Give me some excitement I squeal.
Now with a bet placed
Fates hand embraced
Spin your wheel Idonya
Too late now to withdraw
If only I knew the odds
And fates of the prior sods
Each an end met too soon
After seeking a similar boon
Slow, then stop the wheel
Wait what is this I feel?

Midnight’s Quarrel

The earth made nary a sound
As bone came sliding out of ground
It was the once a month night
Which skeleton could take flight
From coffin under ground
Or from tomb now unbound
On night high clear of moon
Only held back by sacred rune

Some toiled on long gone work
Others roamed through the murk
Yet growing numbers did decide
No longer in their rooms to hide
Drawn to one with dark power
Promising to extend the roaming hour
No fear of death in their head
They followed where sinister lead

Yet not all could heed the call
Somewhere deep a spirit maul
Calling restless bone to bed
A sonata with weight of lead
Lune’s harbinger of peace
Asking to give up the lease

Soothsayer offering a test
Sought end to sinister unrest
When dawn’s light o’er hill did break
Both sides shelter did take
In dawns orange and purple light
Neither could stand to fight
Arrival of Sol’s champion
Dressed in robes colored campion
She their power did absolve
Mutual destruction left no resolve
