Where The Wild Roses Grow

Will you not meet me underneath the waves?
‘Cause there I lie; I fear the Shadow’s Son —
who gently sings the Broken to their graves.

I was the bearer of a searing sun —
when you burned bright, burned fiercely in my heart;
burnt to the very core, it mattered none.

They say I loved you from the very start —
and did not see when envy drowned the light;
when boiling storms just tore my heart apart.

Yet, here I float, in seas of darkest night —
soon to be bound to whom my soul enslaves;
the Shadow’s Son, who whispers songs of blight.

I seek the One whose heart the darkness braves…
Will you not meet me underneath the waves?

( Terza Rima Sonnet)

Lunchtime (Gollum vs. Sting)

we
played tag
(yes, we like to play!)
in fields of gold

& i lost my mind
(up up up the stairs…)
to you

you
had my heart for lunch
(is it juicy? is it scrumptious?)
peppered,
with a pinch of lemon;
licked the plate clean &
left me to do the dishes

so i wallowed
in soap water tears
(not fair! not fair!)
for a while

come dusk,
you can tell the sun
in (t)his jealous sky
(leave now… and never come BACK!)
to kiss my ass.

Music

blood-red skies shift, tremble
crumble
before vaporized eyes
and rasping, gravel voices

thunderstorm leaps
from ear to ear
strikes the heart, to skip a beat
(to the beat; the Beat…),
settles
in the pit
to jump,
infect,
assimilate.

what a tale;
what a world
can be conquered
by the lifeblood
that is music.

Overwhelmed…

I don’t like to reblog things other people wrote.
However, I will make (kind of) an exception today.

Someone created something beautiful.
Something very beautiful… and it would be a shame if I didn’t share this.

Adam S. wrote an enticing, powerful story… raw emotion, brilliantly written. Go and devour it… Part 1 to 4.
I did.

The Conductor of an Aggressive Symphony

I hope it will leave you as speechless and amazingly overwhelmed as it left me.
Enjoy… You’re in for a treat!
Such a beautiful, beautiful piece.
