Foaming Fury

Against a backdrop of broiling grey
The dancing colours flap; wave away
To all who can see and for all left to be
A warning about the worsening sea

A relentless outburst of desperate cries
Fighting the force of the cloudy sighs
And the seas whip up a daring wager
To all who seek the thrill of danger

Teasing and testing the brave and bold
Icy waves so strong and cold
As eyes of love cry tears of pain
The battering wind and stinging rain

White capped waves a growing swell
A cold dark tomb or the gates of hell
Inviting a cold and clammy demise
To wash the life from dying eyes

A tumbling mass of death and desire
A tempting lure for those of inner fire
Like a moth to a flame; an unfathomable pull
Obliviously entering beneath the cry of a gull

Be they brave or fools for reasons unknown
Ignoring the pressure and deafening groan
He climbs atop his trusty board
On cresting waves the surfer soared

Flying across tumultuous waves
Where many have and will find their graves
A sea of life that will take your breath
As it sucks you down to a cold dark death

Night Fury short poem

Vaccumed into my skin , I couldn’t breathe in the storm , so be it . You have me whole , without a doubt. The distant between us ripped our souls apart , Barely holding on to our memories hoping

Fury Of Juggler * short poem

A primordial fear takes over. These pathways are not reaching anywhere. I am leaving blank papers for you. This was dark matter, you start dying from birth. A fireball sails through you reaching for the shadow of the soul. The
