Good-Bye

MMIAAM3012

Billions of stars hovering above,

reflections dancing upon black waves,

coalescing heavens and ocean into one.

A world wrapped in stillness;

cradled between Pacific swells;

rising, falling gently like an endless lullaby.

A dark shape glides through the luminescent water,

huge flukes rising in a soft arch under the moonlight,

a blunt head surfacing as if to say good-bye,

before sliding beneath ripples,

to disappear into the deep blue void.

Destruction

IMG_0193The Earth was burning

The air resonating with otherworldly booms

Clouds, dark and diffuse rising,

their opaque contours expanding

to block out the sun

And under the dense veil of amber fumes

trees blazed in violent violet flames

rivers of molten lava

snaked down barren mountains ranges

hissing,

roaring,

plunging into the boiling seas

And all around the children of the Underworld

Watched.

Stood quietly.

Silent shadows amid the billows of scarlet storm

Change

IMG_0146A dark room,

hushed,

and airless,

a vacuous face,

blank,

featureless,

waiting

hunger to be painted with life,

puzzle pieces of color,

neon lights vibrant in dark city streets,

wide blue oceans,

golden suns and silver moons,

skies dense with swirls of dark purple,

and stormy greys,

rainbows trapped and rung dry,

every color,

every shade,

every hue,

seized,

captured,

imprisoned to paint a new face

Sunshine

IMG_0219

a spell of sunshine

a fleeting glance of light

a filtered ray of dusty yellow

spilling on a lonely face

 

a blue sky

an almost promise

a golden whisper

syllables of summer

open eyes and open hearts

touching hands across space

 

white clouds

soft smiles

a silent field of blue irises

swaying in a quiet breeze

 

voices drift

red flowers spill color

dark crimson

on souls that love

in midsummer nights

Dancing In Black

IMG_0214

The faceless dancer

draped in endless black velvet

a shadow in a falling night

catching crumpled stars with pale fingers

a woman, a body, a wingless angel

dancing in the mist of moonlight

the fading colors of winter

the blurring outlines of forgotten cities

full of empty houses, empty air and empty hearts

as broken screams fall into faceless death

Blue Dreams

IMG_0135Inside blue dreams are drowning cities

frayed with shadows that stretch huge

in unclear moonlight

 

skeletons ride through flooded alleys

luminescent in the charcoal cities

decaying buildings tower above

the black waves

 

a mother’s voice like splintering glass

echoes shrill in the emptiness

at every corner shattered windows

and dead colors fester

 

an underground darkness rose

swallowing life in decades of shadows

an ageless rippling night

Shadows

IMG_0207

Soldiers drift

on the outskirts

of a broken planet

quiet shadows

in a gathering dust

their splintered bodies

swaying

as velvet nights falls

and their voices

laced in song

tint the purple horizon

in streaks of scarlet

that bleed to permeate

every sky in deep red

burning the rhythms

of war in windless hearts

Breaking

IMG_0142

 

if you break

 

I will break with you

 

Crimson blood

 

will drip

 

from our veins

 

bruises

 

will burn

 

on both our bodies

 

open wounds

 

will cry

 

in unison

 

Black tears

 

will stain

 

pale skin and gold

 

every scream

 

every scar

 

every death

 

I will hold your hand

 

as we drown

 

I will hold your hand

 

and never let you die alone.

 

Nowhere

IMG_0141

Somewhere

in the core

of nowhere

Blue roses dance

in silent shadows

and sapphire souls

cry in hollow

emptiness
