Rest

Some words that dont rhyme

In this place where dragons slain

lay, beds of bones, and winds whip wild

leaves back unto the clawing earth

and on this bleached cold pyre you lie

consumed by all we once fought brave,

to hold and have and tender spills

a love fire tested, burnished, red

now faded, folly shows true face

And to the heart the arrow true,

harsh barbed with lies and sweet deceit

light fades, sun slips and darkness wraps

her arms in coldest loves embrace.

Beyond this now

Word soup

Far beyond this fragile grasp of things I claim to know

Seem clear at first then fade so fast

through fingers slip and do not last

there lies a truth I claim to see in places I daren’t go.

Ears fall deaf when loudest voices call with clarity

Light unexpected blinds my eyes

A fool I’m made, no longer wise

and do despise the things I know that ring most true with me.

So take my words, these thoughts, those deeds and judge me for their worth

For all I am is laid most bare

When in the dark and without care

Return myself to skies above or cold beneath the earth.
