A RED GLOW

red glow

Alexander Calder, Sumac V. 1953.

 

A glow in the night

will lead me astray

from the moon’s light

to where I can’t say.

 

Bloody prints mark the way

to a small town on the shore.

At the end of the day,

we are at the devil’s door.

 

Time has no meaning or reason.

You can travel forward or back.

Death will follow with each season.

It is past time for me to pack.

FOLLOW THE LIGHTS

FOLLOW THE LIGHTS
Follow the lights to the house of glass.
There will be much splendor in the grass.
Lights in the trees as far as the eye could see.
A more decadent event there...

FOLLOW THE LIGHTS

Follow the lights to the house of glass.

There will be much splendor in the grass.

Lights in the trees as far as the eye could see.

A more decadent event there could not be.

 

Champagne will flow until the wee hours.

Come with me and dance among the flowers.

This room full of guests gives me a chill.

Maybe we should leave, I’ve had my fill.

 

Stares follow us in the room.

They’ll be upon us too soon.

The guests are not what they appear.

Beneath, they are just bones and hair.

I WAIT FOR HIM

Lost in her suffering in a town of despair,

Linda knows not how to release herself from here.

She gazes out at the big bright moon,

Knowing full well what it will bring soon.

THE DEAD GAME

THE END

 

 

The end is coming near.

The end that we hold dear.

Darkness will invade.

It will come in spade.

Time is our enemy,

Which we have aplenty.

The waves grow stronger.

The days become longer.

The sun hides its face.

No longer in its place.

The moon takes over.

Please, take cover.

There’s nowhere to hide.

Is time on our side?

THE DEAD are here.

There’s much to fear.

THE MOON RISES

Source:

 

 

Creak.

Crunch.

The air moves.

Squeak.

Moan.

The trees shake.

I shouldn’t have come alone.

In the dark.

After the sun sets.

The moon rises.

And so do The Dead.

RETREAT

amazing-earth-pics Deactivated

 

RETREAT

A place for our dreams,

An earthly retreat.

Bursting at the seams,

Can you feel the heat?

 

The earth is alive.

Its core is on fire.

We need to survive.

I’ll feed your desire.

 

We cannot stay.

The door is closing.

It’s washed away

By the sea’s hosing.

 

Chase the moonlight with me.

My arms will hold you.

The moon will set us free.

I’ll always love you.

THE NIGHT COMES

 

 

The night comes,

Dragging its feet,

Lurking in the corners.

Come to me.

I can’t wait much longer.

Your time is limited.

Enter my domain.

The wind sighs.

The moon shows its face.

The birds flee.

The spirits rise.

Yes, move closer.
