Baritone Waters

His sound waves into Her ears

His root can’t deny it

Her mind wanders to defy it

Their vines intertwine the bones

This moment is real

It is as real as day

As real as the Sun makes rays

As real as the Earth and Moon gravitate

As real as the sky brings rain

He is Her Cain

He opens wounds

Removing the disease of the last one

Who…

That last one who

She fell as The Fool

Ancestors watching Her burn into new

On Her bed of fire He blew

From the flames came the truth

To the ocean They go

To the motion They move

Beautiful Burden

He took the matter into his mind

Gave a little freedom

Took a little time

She opened his hands only to find

One word phrases

Three word lies

Baptised in dark waters

Tides pull them a part

He gave one more story:

Let’s play it by heart.


Phoenix

Elemental


Have you ever met someone and they were a breath of fresh air?
Wow

Just like that. This very special soul is inspiring as the wind. Fluid like water. Grounded and nurturing as the Earth. And passionate as fire. 

You can take me away.

Be my air 

I want to sink into your emotion. 

Please be my ocean

Let me grow with you. Let’s make a tree.

Are we Earth

Rest me in your center. I’ll be the heat.

Who’s your fire

I am so overwhelmed by this energy. How can I express this thoroughly?

Suffocate me in your heat. I want you to breathe. Blow your wind into my lips.

Black Shots

We threw them back

And smashed the glasses

Codes and oaths

He’s brave

I was harshly created

Yet he took on my battle

And what of the war

I exclaimed him

He realized he can’t tame her

He realized he can’t walk around her and touch the frame she built

He march with her

In attempt to release her sword

He emptied her shallow grave

She plummeted her points and his blood she drank

He decided to pay

For the sins of the last

This time she wondered if there could be an overthrow of…

She thanked the gods for this journey

The blessings bestowed upon them

The crown he knew he earned it

He ingests her darkest dreams

My Angel Is A Monster

I felt you crawl underneath my skin

Just to find my heart

I know you left your scent

In hopes that my mind is caught

You could be brave

You could be art

But you prefer pain

You prefer the slaughter


Your eyes trace my wind

Just look inside yourself

You could choose anything else

But you’re not there yet

If I should abide to a sadist

I’d have to become what you made me

Where are the puzzles that fit

If I should abide to you sadist

You’ll learn that in the end 

To death we all submit

(In my wine glass we drank my blood. Why were you so haughty?)

Iron brings strength

Everyone knows this surely

Iron brings strength

Everyone knows this surely

Dew Drops

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to a morning like this…

Dew drops on bare skin

A chilled layer of silver wind

It only took one moment

One quick moment of defiance

The magnolias kept silent

The bay leaves wrapped around us

It’s mesmerizing

It’s honest

He’s never afraid to go within

His monster breathes

The bravest I’d ever seen

We measure our cups

To this we drink


Phoenix
