Monster

wolf

I refuse to fail and to fall.
I will answer my heart’s call.
Call it a curse, call it a gift.
But I fade as the sun and moon shifts.

I fight every day, the monster inside.
The sun is rest and causes it to hide.
Sleep while I can before my heart beats.
Rest before the forest floor finds my feet.

Will you run from me if you saw the real me?
Will you lock your doors and hope I don’t see?
When the morning comes alive, I will find rest.
After all, the night is only, yet one more test.

Call it a gift, call it a curse,
Yet being normal might only be worse.
Let me run with the wild and hunt alone,
Let me stay alive while the moon grows.

Battle Worn

lostelf

When the moon rises and the sun sleeps,
When nightmares and passions fight for keeps,
When the wind howls and calls from the dark,
It begins, the time where I wake and walk.

I hear you, I hear your whispers, your tears.
I know and understand the darkness and the fears.
I’ve lived the nightmare and fought the creature.
I was once the student, but now I am the teacher.

The battle remains quite by day, and rages at night,
As the world sleeps we rise worn and tired but we fight.
I dare you to walk in my shoes, nightly facing the fire,
Knowing, that you can never rest, you must not tire.

But for you, I fight, for you I stay awake and alive,
For you and for me, each night into darkness I dive,
To fight the monster that stalks and feeds on our fears.
To protect and to guard and to wipe away your tears.

Night Mare

The wind is blowing once again,
Thunderous clouds are rolling in.
Night is falling in the midst of day,
Heat of summer gives to the cold of May.

The thunder speaks out to my soul,
The sky turns black, deeper then coal.
It mimics the nightmare that runs free,
The one that continues, to stalk me.

Out of the clouds, a bright flash,
like sparks from hooves, a loud crash.
The red of eyes peer from the storm,
The nightmare is coming, fear is born.

Memories, dreams, life and death,
Take hold of my heart, steal my breath.
She rides down from the dark sky,
The thunderous hooves, drown out my cry.

It’s only a storm, where day becomes night,
It’s only a dream that brings death from fright.
The nightmare returns with a rider on its back.
The storm leaves a path from it’s quick attack.

Enough

Kay Rice
06/09/2015

I have had enough of tears,
Enough of pain and of fears.
I have been driven far to my knees,
And here is where strength found me.

For my choices alone made me a victim,
Breaking bones and heart, tearing limbs.
Then faith whispered making me a survivor,
Showing me life was meant to be more than tired.
And then at my darkest hour, my God made me a warrior,
Through love and patience, he delivered the final cure.
I am a fighter.

Do you want to live forever?

I understand now
The unspoken vow.
The promise of the huntress.
The embracing of the curse.

To walk alone yet strong.
To great each day with song.
Don’t get too close to your heart,
As its too much a threat to start.

I understand now the road.
The gift of legends told.
Of dreams yet to become real,
Of treasures waiting to steal.

For Valeria once spoke with tears,
Looking at love seemed so unreal,
For the road beckons oh so clever,
After all “Do you want to live forever”.

Finality

image

You used me,
        Abused me,
                 Burned me,
                        Scorned me.

You betrayed me,
        Blamed me,
             Labeled me,
                    Sold me.

You lied to me,
           Preyed on me,
                    Took from me,
                                Stole from me.

And yet,
     You did forget,
           My wings were set,
                I won the final bet.

Ashes

image

You tried to break me from the grave,
Crushing, forcing me to behave.
Your ashes burn my flesh & eyes,
Tears won’t wash away all your lies.

Your darkness seeps through broken souls
Yet I will continue to fight, to become whole.
You are a plague of putrid hate & lies,
Its time your legacy of fear finally dies.

You tried to break me in life and in death,
You strangled my dreams with my breath.
All you did was make me stronger,
Even more determined to live longer.

The darkness needs to be washed away,
Let the ashes blow far from this day.
I will remain strong, very much alive,
You will not rob me of my faith inside.

I WILL RISE ABOVE.
