Hollow Lullaby

Darkness in her blood
Empty hollow eyes
Misty foggy soul

Humanity departed from the newfangled

Broken, jagged canines that muddle with the handcuffs
Cut bleeding fast, feet outrunning the saviours

Dead on the inside with sporadic heartbeats
Blinded by the red moon
The heavens missing stars


Mentally drifting

Body is bounded

Someone set  her FREE

Lullaby Of Death

Lullaby of Death

By Liz Peterson-Braveheart


You have no right

To bear your silent wish of death

Upon my brethren’s door,

You have no right.


You have no right

To cast your world of hate

Before my child’s eyes,

You have no right.


The wickedness you offer

On the table isn’t just,

And as you rant of guts and glory,

Your heart is cold,

A breach of trust,

You have no right.


To scowl, or render judgment

On such lies and fabrications,

And then gloat,

While bathed in rapture

Once more,

Hungry for ovation!

Then slay again!

You have no right.


To mothers and fathers,

Daughters, sons,

…and innocent babes,

Your desperate gnawing helps

To seal their lips

But not their might,

The beastly seed in you ignites,

And they lay naked on your platter

You call justice

As you feast with sheer delight?

You have no right.


Love and freedom suffocate,

In our ears the sound of silence

Is their last hurrah,

As you claim the spiteful anthem,

Your self righteous Lullaby of Death.

For My Darling Daughter!

Now, I don’t really care, she is my grown-up girl
Once I was the oyster to protect my baby pearl

That was the time, to her a lullaby I would sing
She would gently fall asleep, beneath my caring wings

And now is the time, my girl is busy, full of aggression
Wrinkles on my eyes desperately seek her attention

Then a day arrived when she said,
‘Mum it’s your birthday, let’s celebrate’

At home I awaited her, for a mother-daughter meet
I cooked chicken for her that day, my darling loves it!

But she dint turn up as promised, my heart sank
I consoled myself, she must be playing pranks

She came home late night, no wishes, no celebration
Just a ‘Good Night’, she had forgotten the occasion

Hush lil heart! She is grown up after all, those emotions won’t stay
Hope she is in safe hands, from the core of my heart I pray!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A message from a mother to her really busy daughter... i love my mum and care for all those who at this age need to seek attention from their child.

Lullaby Goodnight

Lullaby Goodnight

If you could only see what i see..if only you could feel the way i feel..if only you could hurt the way i do..if you did, you would learn that all those emotions i have are sunk to deep, i drown in your every word..why do you take me by the hair and leave me hanging tell me things to make me go..but you know..if i was to would be for you..when i cry i hurt myself thinking about you..walls i ones you build..i could do forever..hold me close, be my friend..think of me once..then never again.. if you hate than i love..when worlds collide and become one..i fall and u smile..i dont mind i can wait forever..even when you cross the point of no returns to my enemy and ill be yours..pretend to live but we all know your want life but dont trust it..i feel this way because you never say its wrong to do so..

i can be silent, i can be wrong..but why does it always feel so gave chances..i was to late.. you ask and you wonder..why am i the one left to ponder..we say goodnight but never call me by my name but it doesnt feel the same..if you lead me i will go..if you say so i will know.. if you mean me no harm..if you want to see where we go..all u need to do is tell me..i break when i dont know if you hate me..tell me you secrets and lies..spill out why u can never me when your eyes bleed bood..its funny how it all started..dust caught in the wind..just small chances.. you hide behind all the fake you created, and u know i can see through it.. days that turn into months and soon another year..your fears can become my strength and getaways..your hurt becomes something i need to hear..your life you say is a long one to young enuf to live threw your turn and i close but i open..are you affraid of what you`ve never had..are scared that what you`ve dreamt about, is so real its worth letting it go..

if only i had more of you to know..for know every other night you send me lullabys..they sing me to sleep..when i dream of what your past was like.., i switch the songs to the storys i think you would like..the sweetest thing you say when it flows like a when you say sweet dreams goodnight..please never switch the last words you say to.. goodbye..

Author's Notes/Comments: 

To my bfest friend who i care so deeply for..but is trapped behind his own walls to see that all his deep drakness could become a bit brighter if he only let go of the past and let the tangled mess within his chest unfold..with that..knowing that even if trusts is very know..i am and always will be there for you..even if you forget me..

This is for each night we stayed up and talked endlessly about the good..and the bad..and this is for you even if u never see it..

When you leave know your taking a little part of my heart with you..the future only knows if u will return it back to me..
