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

Arleth

It was a clear periwinkle sky
Cut by alabaster banners fly
Future fallen heroes marched
Crossing emerald fields and hills arched
Clad in shiny nickel armor
They indifferent to passing farmer
Hefting graphite lance and shield
They hunt amethyst dragon without yield

Captain on chestnut and milk mount
Pronounced in rousing shout
Promises of fortune and fame
And glory to those that Arleth maim
The salmon sun oversaw marching lines
On past pens of rosy swines

As time crept under tiring silver foot
They beheld the first of Arleth proud soot
Midnight char upon both structure and plant
The smell of dragon’s rage hardly scant
Soldiers’ scarlet heart than did race
As over ashen hill they spot her face

T’would not be so bad
If Arleth’s face did not look so glad
In dragon’s burning aurum eyes
Many man quaked in pending demise
Arleth next showed Ivory fang
Releasing fears of coming pang
Wings stretched out in taunting girth
Pushing adversaries to the earth
Arleth parted in fiery breath
Sending brave captain to his death

Spry sergeant backwards leapt
At survival he was more adept.
From honey bow did he reply
Letting ebony arrow fly
Would only take one shot
Landing in a narrow spot
But it would not be today
In the sky Arleth made her way

Foggy Mind

What is there in the dark
Hidden by flimsy hands
Weakness I chose to embrace
Down paths I fear to face
In a chest under desolate lands
The buried voices to me did hark

In grief my mind still knows
I faced it once and then did hide
The potential I am not
Could have chosen as my lot
I showed no other side
Sometimes wondering if still it grows

Desperate times this place I seek
Coveting that wanton rage
Smirking at the darkness there
Not a mask longed to wear
Tossed back in its cage
Not wanting it so bleak

Scellemen’s Hall

Are you going to Scellemen’s hall
The place where you can see it all
Down old stone pathways lead
Ignore the warning sign’s plead
Out past rational things of pleasure
It is where to go for all types of leisure
Where luxury is always on display
And beast, unrestrained, are free to play

Did you receive a similar call
See my bill with fancy scrawl
Ideas described inside as seed
Curiosity abounds more than need
My concern I keep in equal measure
What at path end is this maps treasure
Haste we make in sun’s last ray
We join others along the way

As moon light starts it’s fall
Revels in mind’s corners sprawl
Then comes noise summoning heed
Celebration. not warnings, indeed
Inquisitiveness is a greater force
On we adventure without remorse
Fun shall be ours today
At Scellemen’s hall we will stay

Retort

Would that I were
The one to motivate and spur
It is not change for all to see
But to better those near me
If I am to change anyone
It will start with someone
The one to start with is I
And know it better than thy

The voice and noise to choose
I need to know whose
Seeking not to emulate
Despite where I gravitate
Focus past out held claws
Caught up not on others flaws

If I am not inured
To my own spouted word
Then action I will seek
And cease an outlook bleak
Rather than rile and retort
Seek out where I fell short
