The Road

I’ve driven this road a hundred times. Know every curve of the pavement Like a lover’s body By light of the sun Or shadow of a stormy night I know this road But tonight it tastes different Maybe it’s the whiskey in my eyes But I swear I passed that tree already The one with …

The Trumpet Calls

I can hear the trumpet calling The sound echoing in my chest Rattling in my teeth I knew it would come But not this soon My family sits at the table Breakfast laid out before them My hands clench into fists Above the trumpets I hear the pounding Shaking the door in it’s frame Voices …

The Toll

The oldest of us is still young But too old to carry the burden alone Though my teeth are aching I know it’s not my time to join her The night will wait for me It is my brother that follows her Into the woods, into the dark. Iron chains digging into the earth behind …

Teeth

Your blood singing to me Promising me the sun When all I’ve known is the dark I can taste your fear on my tongue Do not worry my dear I am not in this for the long run It will be over soon It will be over fast In a flash of teeth and fire

Field

I lie in a field of rolling grass Freckled with stones Names Days past and present. Freshly plucked flowers Their sweet scent Barely covering The stench of their decay I lie in a field of rolling grass Dirt beneath my nails In my hair My mouth I’ve stopped struggling now I won’t be long

Psycho

I live in her shadow Each step of mine Is first plotted by her My every breath In succession to hers The words in my mouth Are hers alone Each one I whisper She spoke first It is her voice in my head Telling me to be a good boy A good son But that’s …

Reflection

I sit at the table Facing the window My own face Starring back The woods outside are dark. Silhouetted behind my reflection, Which is illuminated by chandelier My skin is pale Sunkin The years have been unkind The lighting crueler still A wind shifts the fog outside My hair shifts in the breeze My hair …

Your Heart on a String

I’ve put your heart on a string So I can always keep it close But the brilliant red has begun to fade Into a dull grey And the all too familiar ache Settles in once more A new cologne on the air Turns my head I’ve put your heart on a string I’ll hang it …

Soul Collector

The eyes are the window to the soul And your are so lovely my dear The way the colors swirl It’s like a dance The tears streaming down your face Illuminate their beauty even ore The eyes are the window to the soul And love, Yours would be the crowning jewel in my collection
