A Raid On A Seaport

look into me what you can see now
deep branches of my heart rooted to the soil
how i ended up this way i wonder how
from a vacant point let me shed my foil

how you reached my shore is a far fetched mystery
how we entwined in tears is a heartfelt misery

behind the lines of brazen shores they fought
enemies of you and me for their utmost agony
does the crimson skies shed a drop of doubt
in the name of red oceans crying for my bloody glory

their cries drowned in the ocean howl
your sword slashed countless creatures foul

into the ocean burning ships shed their charred ash
behind the crimson sphere on our decaying skies
does the flames leave a thought to dash
about the souls now burning in our pyre of lies

let fallen souls curse us in a glaring hiss
but let our last embrace end in a warm kiss

my blood i pledged to you in your name
let the oceans claim you back to where you belong
every drop of blood you shed enhanced my shame
my numb remains are now rooted to the soil i belong


Savouring The Massacre

outside my window a wind full of cries
blows in, with the sound of a gunfight
knocks on my door, pretty soft and calm
yet my instinct suggests otherwise
oh how i adore a genocide

blood on my floor which sneaked through my door
paints my delights in red lights
asking me out, to drink under moonlit skies
yet the rabbit isn’t that white
just to fall behind a mysterious ride

so i sit tight in the dimmed light
and paint in red what’s in my mind
screwing the brush around i wonder
“by this time at the corridor
they might be dancing in total wind”

amidst the beautiful massacre outside,
with my friends and family i dine
drinking fine old wine in candle light
oh the irritating noise and the kicks
on the damned door, might left me deaf

with tanks roaring outside the door
with bombs tracking the pain of my window
i don’t feel so safe myself in this war
and not with a thick puddle of blood
on the tip of my toe

every waking day i cling to this bloodshed
and with my passion for it and for I’m humanist
it kisses me on my pale forehead
and with it’s rotten sense of humor and my weird luck
i never had bled

and with my gun under the bed
and with this shade before the bend
there’s not really a war to attend
and with my club foot, the limp in my heart
nothing much I’ve got in me to mend

pale veil of the moon or the sun in the noon
are same to me, i got neither of them in my room
so the sight stayed outside, all gloom..
but not the sound of the drums of doom
the tune was uplifting..

clear panes of my back side windows
near planes of the war eaten black meadow
are not very far from one another
but who could have felt such heat
they all have their feet covered in thick leather

gory and bruised,yet careless whether
the zombies savour the massacre..
the mutilated soul from the ill weather
like a fairy hidden in feathers
despite the distance, stay together

Tomorrow Came Yesterday

They were trying to roll the thing back, it was not moving, not that it was supposed to, it laid there snug, like yesterday and day before. In fact eons ago it was there, not an inch differed in position.

“Fuck it all, we are not gonna have any luck, keep the bugger there and let’s get lost” steamed A through his muffler. A crash of steel was heard while B slammed his shovel in to the soil. “Boss, really what are we doing in this cold, if this goes like this we are gonna be numb like Z” it was a meek voice for a big man like B, but everyone knew he made sure his voice was heard. A was having nothing of it. “Z is a dumbfuck, he should have rested his ass on that bunk of his and said goodbye sweet world. Now we gotta pay for it”

“It’s friggin cold boss” comes the wheezing sound of C, “Leave that thing there, we got nothing from it, it’s not gonna solve any problems now howmuch Z swears on it” (more…)

An Elegy for the Fallen

dispel all the darkness in your eyes
wipe all the tears you tried to cry
your heart is not feeling any more
embrace the numbness as you fade

on this cruel morning autumn winds blow
as leaves fall on your unmarked grave
your name shall not be called anymore
embrace the forgotten as you fall

sacred moments of candlelight memories
burned as flames faded with smoke
incense heavy spells snared souls
icy cold as mist drained the blood

as our rolling fate became clear
the end was reached but was end nevermore
a cruel game of chance played wild
we all hung our heads in shame

as the dusk drew near
we embraced the mist covered shades of fear
dewdrops icy cold dripped on the scorched earth
the last of the fallen were rising again

as the dawn was called
we embraced illusions of the beaten
blood dripped to quench molten fires of pain
the last ones were laid fallen again

this emptiness blurred our vision
muted summons faded in the autumn winds
dreams of forlorn hope was our mission
as our last drops of life dripped bare

wipe all the mist on your pale body
drape in moss you loved to embrace
your soul is not breathing anymore
embrace the coldness as you die

a fable i remember in your cadence
as fading memories weaken my last hold
now hold no more and release your breath
you was nobody but a pawn of prophecy

Barren Lands

a land of blood drained and souls saddened
razed cities in the name of memories forgotten
chilling screams of the lost fought the fires of damned
the great white bear of north strong with endurance infinite

a land where grass was never green again
ashes lined the once golden sands
crystal blue waters red hot with pain
the emperor of sun hardened with valor infinite

a game for a throne of blood
pitched claw and teeth sword and shield
soulless cries of mercy ignored
pitched the bear against the emperor

a dream of sun to the frozen north lair
only was the thing the great bear care
fame and honor for a rule of dare
only was the thing the emperor care

thousand cries drowned in a mighty growl
thousand cries to the sleeping legends to wake
unite against the rolling snow resist the bear
thousand sighs drowned in a clash of steel
thousand sighs to the sleeping legends to wake
unite against the raging seas strip the emperor bare

sing i do with my harp’s strings sing for rain to wash my hands
bring back memories of legendary ages to the barren lands
let the wheel of time turn let me hear laughter for my heart’s sake
let the lore of past live again let the sleeping dragons wake
