STAND STRONG

 

Stand strong for me.

Your petals closed tight.

Face to the sun.

Hope in your heart.

Release your sweetness.

The perfect fragrance.

Let the dew quench your thirst.

The rain wash your tears.

Stand strong for me.

DARK AS THE NIGHT

HIDDEN

I walk with the living at day,

They do not hear a word I say.

They believe I’m alive like them,

But I’m stronger than any men.

I run like the wind past the trees,

Fly through the sky faster than bees.

My true self is hidden away,

I might be a little fey.

At night I walk with others,

They’re close to me like brothers.

Whom am I? you might ask.

I might take you to task.

Take care not to open that door,

You’ll be in hell forever more,

IT FLICKERS

Michail Satarov, Towards the Light. 

 

 

The candlelight flickers.

Melting down.

Dripping hot wax.

A pathway of heat.

For The Dead lo follow.

As they reach up.

From hell below.

Rising stronger.

Hotter.

Deadlier.

DIFFERENT

 

I stand alone under the stars.

Alone on the purple carpet.

Gazing off into the distance.

Waiting for others like me.

Ones who grow stronger in the wind.

Who lift their leaves to the sun.

Who aren’t afraid to be different.

Come and join me.

We will grow true and green.

A HOUSE OF CARDS

 

A house of ice.

So very nice.

But it’s still unstable.

Like a shaky table.

Once the sun shows its hot face.

The house is a melted place.

Such can be a  house built on lies.

Useful as a horse catching flies. 

Once the lies are unsealed.

House of cards is revealed.

A house’s foundation must ring true.

It must be built to be strong & true.

INVISIBLE

A ghost of me

Some days I feel strong and empowered,
 Ready to face the challenges
 Life throws at me.
 Other days I feel invisible,
 A transparent copy of myself,
 Feeling life fade away.
 How do I remain strong?
 My transparent self
 Needs to be reminded
 Of all the people
 Who rely on it;
 Of all the people
 Who love and need it.
 It is flickering.
 It is becoming solid.
 It is becoming strong once again.

DISGUISES OF EVIL

 

The castle’s walls are thick and sturdy.

Ready to withstand an attack.

Ready to protect its own.

But are they strong enough to block evil?

From evil seeping in.

From taking on different forms.

Disguised as a loved one.

Evil knows no bounds.

It will do anything to win.

You may strengthen your walls.

But evil always finds its way.
