The stars shine bright but seem so far,
They appear so different then what they are.
Beautiful, glistening diamonds tempting the heart,
Yet in reality they are only cold rocks, falling apart.

The night sky beckons and calls out my name,
To reach to the lights, to shed all my shame.
They twinkle and dance, like sirens do call,
Yet, I know if I jump, I surely will fall.

I reach up, believing I can catch that one star,
Yet knowing to well I will never reach that far.
Perception and dreams weave a deadly dream,
They distort the truth, masking what needs to be seen.

So my feet stay planted, here, by my balcony wall,
I know I can’t fly, so I never will fall.
The stars will continue to sing and to dance,
Someday, I will touch one, someday by chance.

Cries

A cry is made in the dark of the night,
Shrill and cold, filled with fright.
The stars shutter to hide behind clouds,
The wind whispers, beneath nights shroud.

A whimper, a cry, from far, far away,
A dream, a memory refusing to give way.
Pain that breaks the heart and the soul,
Then hushed away as morning bells toll.

A prayer is sent to the heavens above,
A soul is lost and is begging for love.
A tear is shed from eyes, blinded by fear,
As loneliness engulfs the innocent here.

Immortal Love

He comes to me in my sleep,
Awoken from fantasies buried deep.
He whispers to me, disguised by the night,
and beckons me to come into his sight.

The room fills with an ice-cold breath,
Hushing the fireplace of sparks which are left.
The window opens wide with a rushed gentle force,
His presense arrives like a cyclone’s burst.

“Come fly with me,” he takes hold of
my hand,
“Take leave of this cold brutel land.
Wash away your tears”, sealed with a kiss,
“The tragedy of life you no longer will miss.”

I take to the night with a new set of eyes,
A love so deep where there are never good-byes.
The window slams shut on the world I once knew,
By his side I join a world, gifted to only a few.

Path of the Beast

Path of the Beast

When you are forced to stand at the edge,
Forced to remember promises, a long lost pledge.
Choose to take on the enemy or face your fears,
You aren’t ready to fight, yet there are no more tears.
When the darkness calls your name too many times,
And the voices in your head are committing crimes.

All you have to do is close your eyes and feel inside,
The freedom spirit that you buried, you tried to hide.
Let her or him take his form, be it beauty or be it beast,
Let it out, it’s hungry and waits to arrive at the battle feast.
He or she will carry you through and take over heart and soul,
As it arrives, filling every broken piece to make you whole.

When you want to lie down, give your head to end it all,
When you’ve climbed so long the only option is to fall.
Forced to make a choice where there seems to be no end,
When you have cracks from trying to do nothing but bend.
When the darkness beckons you to fall into a deep sleep,
To give in and find an uneasy peace within a cold keep.

Close your eyes pull deep inside your beast to call,
It will be ready and eager, waiting to prevent your fall.
Allow your eyes to see from behind fears strong wall,
Open the cage let it flow from deep within your soul,
Accept the strength, it’s not a curse, it will make you whole.

Every day is a fight a struggle to find one’s way,
You can be a victim and be pitied every day.
You can fight to pull through, loosing piece by piece,
To become a survivor yet broken barely at peace.
But your beast within wants to live and be proud,
So choose to be a warrior and make sure you live loud!
