Imagining how it could be
Seeing how it really is
Makes me want to stop
Dreaming altogether –

AT WORLDS END

Silver and ebony
She is autumn’s child
At the height of her being
Living on fate

Moments of melancholy
Memories fade
Hope slowly wanes
Bringing fits of rage

Seeing and hearing
Things forced on her person
Swallowing them whole
Then choking and purging

Fighting her way
To another worlds end
Where no one has to hurt
Beyond the invisible

Remains of the Day

I saw the shadow
Moving before me
Inching slowly
Down the coast

An illusion of oneness
Reflecting the loneliness
A solitary figure
Etched in the sand

Will there come a time
When the shadow will reveal
Hands clasped together
A twin at its side

Perhaps not along
An oceans sandy shore
Dancing happily instead
Upon a forests floor

When daylight fades
Into twilights magic hour
And that shadow of oneness
Will be the mark of completeness
