The Queen Of The Night

The queen of the night, is power indeed
She shelters the wicked and those who have need
We hide in her shadow, the killer and sneak
She helps us to find those things that we seek

I met her, I think, one night in a dream,
I’d once lost my soul and thought to redeem
She owned all the land, the sky up above
She whispered softly, “What would you do for love?”

Her question confused me, tangled my mind
I could not focus, an answer to find
Love is not something I’ve ever thought true
If I don’t believe then what should I do?

She looked at me sadly, shaking her head
Took me under her arm, smiled and said
“Love is a prize and the greatest of all”
She told me I’d find it if I answer the call.

“One day you’ll find her, I can’t give a name.
You’ll feel her fire because passion is flame
And you will just know when you feel it burn
Just give her your best, expect none in return.”

When I awoke, her words hung in the air
And I settled close to breathe through your hair
With you in my arms I started to feel
Perhaps there is truth and maybe it’s real.

I simply enjoy writing. Mostly fantastical things. Someone once told me that my word choices were poetic so, I thought maybe I would try poetry.

Next Night

I hate the self-immolation of orange sex. Weather was leaving blue strings on the skin. Redemption was incomplete by sharing the legs Lips will not knead the ears. Like wakng in darkness for a passage to grief. Black moon will

A Somber Night

A Somber Night short poem

A volcanic kiss was becoming ungreen. The shark was coming. All night it was raining. The sap was rising and love-farm was deluged. A blue moon walks on the dry eyes. Why the tears had gone to exile? A mole

Stormy Night

The dark clouds are rolling in quickly, wild wind blows fast and fiercely Many leaves and twigs start twirling around and circling Feeling like Edgar Allen Poe, In the distance I can hear some echo’s Of many dog’s barking in

Splitting The Night

Splitting The Night short poem

Pillage started, when there were anti-answers. The trapped light- wanted to be released, from brutalism. When you were nearly drowned, in the multitude of questions, joining the palms, you collect the moments of solitude. You drop a key in the

The Night Sky

The Night Sky short poem

As the sun dives into the beguiling sky And the darkness is about to smear the vault of heaven. The mind, then wanders the lonesome places. The moment , when the mollified region is filled with despondency. The night, then
