Come Away

Folder: 
Love

Come away with me sweetheart

I pray thee, come away

For I do fear that my sore heart

Perchance could pass today

 

How could I live without your love

How could I still move on

I'll sit upon good God's sweet earth

And wait until the dawn

 

For when the dawn should end at last

The sun will bleach my bones

And I shall travel to a land

That no-one's ever owned

 

But when I shall arrive in there

I'll still be all alone

And pine away for my sweet love

And cry all on my own

 

Come away with me sweetheart

I pray thee, come away

For I do fear that I may pass

At any given day

Three Kings

Folder: 
Light and Dark

I sit upon my throne at night

and stare into the dark

Two other chairs are sitting there

And stare into my heart

The candle flickers in the room

Only it's light shines

I sit and wait there for the Queen

and Joker here tonight

 

The time has come, 3-3-3

And I stare straight ahead

Two other forms are in the room

The fear goes to my head

I ask my questions, they, their answers

Stare into the room

I dare not look directly at them

I dare not risk my doom

 

For tonight, in my study

Dark council quietly sits

Three kings,differed kingdoms

I strain to keep my wits

My questions have been answered

Blown candle enters gloom

Turn the lights on brightly

 

Alone inside my room

Rest Now Honored Soldier

Rest now honored soldier

Put your burdens down

The end of watch has come

Trade your sorrows for a crown

Take all these earthly worries

Bury in the ground

Finally relieved

No more honor bound

 

Rest now honored soldier

The battle there is won

Your oath now here is finished

Your trials now are done

We grieve for you o' soldier

But in service we're content

The innocent protected

The evil finally rent

 

Rest now honored soldier

And though is lost your name

Raise high your head

Do not bow in shame

You have received greatest honor

In Valhalla you have claim

Rest now honored soldier

Content in your acclaim

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Here rests in honored glory an American soldier known but to God.

Requescat in pace, militem honorem.

Blindness

Darkness

Deprived of my sight

Sitting in the void

Nothing but myself to fill it

Dark thoughts enter my head

They cover my eyes

Yet I can't see it

In the Blackness

Alone

No matter where I turn

 

There is nothing to see

And then a luminous explosion

A light pierces the darkness

A star from afar

Blinding me again

Blinded by whiteness

Covered in rays of light

And still I cannot see

 

But now there are voices

Around me they are fighting

Some for the darkness

Others for the light

I hear them killing

I hear them destroying each other

And doing atrocities in the name

Of the Darkness or the light

 

But all I can think of

and the more that I ponder

I've come to realize

Is that neither lets me see

 

and both blind me equally

Too late to feign innocence

You've heard it all before

I can't take one more chance

I won't hurt you anymore

 

Consider this my letter

That I write to myself

That I couldn't get better

And I won't take you as well

 

Stab me

Break me

Beat me

And chain me

Leave me on the floor

Gasoline on my body

Light it outside the door

Take the man I was

And burn him to the core

Lets start a war

 

You deserve much better

Than I, for now, could be

Personality suicide

I can live for more than Me

 

For if even I can do it

Then everybody can

A personal revolution

Its time to take a stand

 

Stab me

Break me

Beat me

And chain me

Leave me on the floor

Gasoline on my body

Light it outside the door

Take the man I was

And burn him to the core

 

Lets start a war

Waking Nightmares

Folder: 
Light and Dark

I sleep

I dream

 

Or somewhere in between

 

For within waking nightmares

Nothing's ever as it seems

 

 

I wake

I stare

 

Or am I truly there?

 

Reality's an illusion

And it never will play fair

 

 

Am I sleeping

Do I wake

 

In which world is which?

 

Should I end my life in one

I cannot choose to switch

 

 

So do I sleep?

Do I dream?

And visit somewhere in between

But within my waking nightmares

True reality unseen

The Seer

Folder: 
Just For Fun

Today I sit upon my chair

and watch the world unfold beneath

The stories that I see in there

I to you, for now, bequeath

 

I see age in specks of dust

A lifetime carved in wood

Time's corrosive touch in rust

Just like a lover could

 

My eyes open to the Sky!

And there I see the stars

But look down, and time flys by

With speeding headlights of cars

 

Look to the rain, wisdoms countless

The same water fell on Rome

I speculate, with reasons doubtless

Civilizations last shorter than stones

 

You may think I ramble insanely

That my mind has truly blown

But these thoughts forever chase me

And will leave me utterly alone.  

To Really See Each Other

The night was clear, the stars shined bright and the moon was full and it gave a strong silver light that allowed them to see each other completely. They were sitting on the grass, one in front of the other, just a few inches away. They were silent, they wouldn’t dare to say a word, not even there at the outside of the city, where they knew no one would hear them. They looked at each other calmly, as if they hadn’t seen before, maybe because it was partially right, this was certainly not the first time they had seen but never had they looked at each other like that, deep in the eyes, no lies this time, so vulnerable and yet so fearless.

 

One broke the silence and then it all came so natural that it seemed as if they hadn’t talked in ages, but then again this was probably right too. They talked about their dreams, about their wishes, about their past, about their future. One told the other that he planned to move to New York to become a playwright and how badly he wanted his plays to make it to Broadway, the other simply said he wanted to make it out of the small town they lived in, to see the world, know places, meet people and learn new things. Maybe they could make it, who knew? The world is full of unlikely events and maybe their dreams were one of those, or maybe they weren’t but on that moment it didn’t matter, in that moment it was all possible and they were convinced they would make it, in that moment it was them against the world and that was all that was needed.


The hours passed by and the moon crossed the sky and the two young boys realized that it was time for them to part ways, for the night was soon to be over and their little world with it. The silent came back as fast as it was once gone and they both stared at each other again for a few seconds. “I think I love you” said one of them in a shaky voice that could hardly be heard by the other; he wasn’t sure if he did, he wasn’t even sure that he could tell even if he did feel it, for he didn’t know what love was but he was sure he was ready to learn. “I guess I love you too” replied the other, also unsure of what he felt. The first one reach out to touch the other’s face and without knowing the latter leaned forward and kissed him. It was a rather awkward kiss, both first, and yet for some reason it just felt right. As soon as it was over they stood up, shook their clothes and said goodbye as fast as they could, for they had to hurry on their way back home. “See you at school” said one of them.

 


The other arrived home, got in without making any noise in order to not wake his parents and lay in bed wide awake for a while; ‘see you in school’, this phrase kept rumbling in his head as he was falling asleep, sure they would see each other at school on Monday but would they really see each other? Would they even talk to each other? Even if the other was willing to, would he be? He closed his eyes, sure of the answer to those question.
