When Blood Ceases to Flow

Fly away my angel.
Be forever young.
My longing will linger into eternity,
But you are at peace.

Your laugh lives always on the warm breeze,
But I am embraced by the night,
A ghost with no heartbeat,
A prisoner without life,
Yet I cannot die.

Sacred Secret

Sacred Secret

Born broken in the dark of night
Her desire, a brilliant blue fire,
To drink of the cool morning
And kiss the champagne sky.

She longed not for fools or men,
But the red-hot, velvet-soft embrace of an angel
Made her heart throb a wild rhythm
And a fever linger on her lips.

Shadow Of Me

Shadow Of Me

Shadow Of Me

Sordid, honey smooth lies of a lover
rip away the light within her.
The woman crying for death
dreams of life after the ache.
“Diamonds are but ugly rocks,” she says, bitterly.
