don’t tempt the inner goddess


Don’t feed the inner dragon,
no matter how hot the fire he may breathe…
Don’t tempt the inner goddess,
with golden apples or a dual of manipulative strength,

Don’t tempt the inner princess,
with lands, jewels, and magic of afar,
don’t tempt the inner dreamer,
with maps to treasures, spells and stars…

Don’t tempt the beauty…
Don’t tempt the beast,
don’t tempt the darkness,
don’t tempt me.

You think you know my little tricks,
you think you have my riddles solved,
you think you and your clever little self,
are so very much more evolved…

But I breathe fire of the deep,
i’ll sink ships and burn Troy if i’m not more pretty,
i’ll trade my realm, possessed with wanderlust,
and i’ll charm the darkest into a sinful trust…

I’ll break your little world apart.
i’ll wound the sky with my sword,
Don’t dance with or lie to my inner monster ,
it is a wrath like that you’ve never seen before…

deep and far away


Once I felt a reason, and we had our season,
when I could have loved you, I could have loved you…
you sought out answers, to every question
that I ever asked you, that I ever asked you….

But rain and snow and hail came in our winter,
And I just couldn’t make it through to summer days…
I don’t know why I couldn’t keep going, i couldn’t love you.
I can’t really answer the one question you gave…

I know it wasn’t fair, i turned off the water to our fountain,
and you were still there, just wanting to hold my hand.
I don’t know where or what happened to our seasons..
honestly, i don’t think either of us will ever understand….

once I felt a reason, and we had our season,
and I could have loved you, i could have loved you, but walked away
you gave me so many answers so very many answers
and i couldn’t tell you a single reason, even a bad one, that i walked away

somewhere there in the shadow of time, in the base of words, and the depth of rhymes
I’m still searching, I”m still digging in my soul,
somewhere so deep, so very cold, somewhere so very hard,
can anybody ever love something so very far… far away,
can anybody make it, dig that deep, to that dark of a place?

knight the skeleton queen


Just watch me crash & burn
f*** this whole universe…
i let my dark side loose…
somewhere inside i always knew

oh, fire & a beast…
oh shatter the star’s light & knight the queen
oh hell & satan let loose
can’t shut the portal I’ve been opening….

Just a dark poem here or there…
just let my mind wander toward the scare
but the fire rages through and bleeds
consumes all the positive energy…

now i’m just a skeleton queen
watch the flames fall from the sky
hear the echo of the battle cry…
Let it be just an evil dream…

no more dark poetry for me.

control ain’t what you think


the rapid breathing got caught in a gasp…
when the door let cold night wind flood the scene…
he saw the fire in her stoney grey eyes…
“baby, calm down… get control before you do anything…”

He turned into a dark shadowy blur her mind,
and his voice became a numb humming as he spoke…
oh what a sorry excuse for a fool was he,
to think words could control the lava behind the seal he just broke…

“Oh you are one to talk about restraint!
tell me, all about how you never loose control, indeed…
I told you to leave as you please, with only one catch…
if you ever cheat before that, I will destroy your everything…

So you went a little crazy yourself, with that scum?
decided to yourself, just for tonight, to have a little fun?…
well darlin’ you know, i want to go crazy and have some fun too…
So now, it’s my turn to get out of control, and play with you…”

By now the little mistress was inching toward the door,
abandoning the frozen adulterer still on the bed…
“Honey, you’re not part of this game, but you can play too
if you move another inch, you will be next to be dead”

He stared into her icey grey eyes
as the wind whistled around the gun
“Baby, please… calm down, i’m sorry”
‘Let’s start with freeze tag, you’re it…so run!”

things only got colder as the night turned grey then black…
all pleads for mercy merely sounded like buzzing bees…
shooting at shadows, killing all the monsters in her life…
Oh but when she wakes up tomorrow, she won’t remember a thing…

because she went a little crazy got out of control
let the demons take over that live within her soul…
and after her shower & a sleep in soft satin sheets,
her sane self knows not, the murderer she harbors beneath…
and for all she knows, she’s in control of everything….

humble hope of the dark


A surreal blanket snuffs the sun,
And I am lost, in weakness numb,
Finally, still, you come to me,
& whisper peace into my being

don’t you see?

the stars shine in the day,
but the sun rays hides them away.
So too, Your strength presides here,
but in the world’s sun, You disappear…

But it’s only a deception,
our iris’s mis-dilation…
needing a correction…
give me some true tribulation…

I see so much more at night…
all of a sudden, shadows are bright
i want you to heal my heart…
so take me back to the dark…

Where it’s just you & me…
a desert that’s totally color-free…
with only shades of gray & light..
your star, here, shines fiery bright

And in the empty void you nest,
flooding stars from East to West
In awe, i fall feebly to my knees,
in humble hope, my heart finds peace…

I refused to paint with black in white…


I refuse to paint with black & white.
For I know that color is more true…
I hate clicking that last door closed,
But at some point in life you have to.

I would much rather live in transience
a somewhat techno-colored world…
full of open-ended chances,
but the world won’t change for this girl…

All of a sudden, I realize
i’m straddling four ships
sailing off in different directions
Ever so slowly, I’m starting to slip…

I’ve spent far too much energy
working to procrastinate,
& I don’t have any time left
to weigh or deliberate

All my paint has run dry,
except for black & white…
I must choose an ultimatum,
I must call it wrong or right.

I hate putting concrete labels…
I don’t want to offend anyone…
but I suppose at the end,
we all must account for what we’ve done…

I’m sorry, It’s all darkness now,
you’re either a shadow or a glow…
& I’ve never painted a picture of night…
never felt so lost as in fresh snow…

everything around is unfamiliar
no footprints since i fell asleep,
just an alarming mono-toned brightness..
& a black too dark for me to see…

I never paint in black in white.
I want my distracting colors back!
Why did you have to go & speak truth,
so i can’t justify the dark blood red on this track?
