Tainted Land

apocalypse

blue is the color
of this frozen land
born out of ancient
fallacy of man

crimson is the color
of blood lust defiled skies
swallowing dust and ash
are these cancerous clouds

unopened flowers wither lay frozen
petals petrified in staring gazes
winter gales reign as the chosen
over icy remains of charred wood
this tainted land stay barren
soiled by subtle remains
of deeds better left unsaid
this tainted land shiver frozen
in shame hides her naked frame
covered in a shroud of ashen ice
the final shreds of a forgotten
heaven falls down from the skies
tearing apart wings fate dies
leaving shattered feathers
floating in icy waters

this land aches abandoned
by mankind dead by own hand
when grayness takes over
falls silent this grieving land


To Fly Without Wings

i woke one autumn morning
a crispy golden feeling
in the air a new dawn flows
and by my window wind blows
trees sway bare with leaves falling
on crystal water sending ripples
sparkling drops splatter around
distorting a mirror of sky above

i look up at the autumn sky
tiny speckles are moving away
in a file of dots further away
i do realize what i do see
swans are finally flying high
i was bound to fly i do agree
if only i had grown wings
that favor was not gifted to me

but i am not sad even a tad
a gift born out of the kernel
is snuggled safe and warm
by me is my love so eternal
springs are for love newborn
nourished in summer days
in autumns when the leaves fall
love grows strong cozy and warm

i look at this spreading field
coated in endless auburn leaves
rustling playfully to wind they yield
i guess the earth feels warm tonight
in its coat of auburn leaves
beside me is my gift my love
my beauty my wings of freedom
the only crowned one in my kingdom

in this new dawn of autumn
i relish every feeling golden
when wind echoes in playful blows
and come up knocking at my door
for wings i don’t crave anymore
because my love makes me believe
i can trace the path a leaf weave
i can fly higher without wings

Winter Moon

look down at me winter moon so blue
these auburn forests dare hide thee
so look from behind their rustling twigs
come back enshroud me in your magic

we made hay in the autumn
our barns are full thanks good fortune
those fields we toiled are now bare
our frozen lake is now crystal clear

my barn is warm but my soul is cold
so with emptiness i tread this land
violin in hand and a tune in heart
to spend a lonely night by the lake

i like how it mirrors your silvery hair
and etched within ice is your smile
my forever childish soul does care
about winters long ago past
oh my moon how so fast
this emptiness shroud my soul
these shadows cloud my mind

with frozen tears i look at your sky
with heaviness i set my violin to chin
and i will strum this saddening melody
that i can’t play at harvest nights

oh winter moon so blue
come back to earth
my violin tugs for you
come back to earth
my strings tugs for you
so again let us play on ice
let me connect eye to eye
for a kiss oh i can’t reach
beauty oh why so shy
dear you are so high


Winters Are To Come

on silent moments while you are breathing
daydream of high castles on cloudy skies
sweet moments of misty daylight sleep
crisp golden plains in the summer sight

sleep light and soft don’t dream too deep
or else you will miss your inner delight
enjoy now all the summer has to offer
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

on silent moments while you are smiling
think of old jokes they used to crack
sweet moments of cherished memories
while you dreamed in the golden barn light

smile light and soft don’t laugh too deep
or else you will miss your inner delight
relish all the mischief while you can
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

on silent moments while you are walking
feel the wet moss draping your bare feet
absorb all sights where the beaten path leads
beside the lake waters shining in summer light

walk slow and soft don’t run as you can
or else you will miss all the sights
enjoy sights on the mirror of the lake plane
for all is not eternal, winters are to come

take it all slow and light while you can
enjoy your life now as all is allowed
for nothing is eternal when time comes
winters of icy cold and dark will strike


Lured Beyond

scream for winds of winter
escape from silvery fire frozen cold
dream for love’s embrace
diminished sense misguided by lure’s told

beyond the horizon piercing gaze of her silvery stare
fight the torment resist the grace forever did i dare
blood and sweat drip on the icy chill exhausted and bare
run and roll jump and pounce but she never care

nothing was so dear
for a failed heart hollow and empty
escape from a cage of lure burnt and razed
in your name i will howl
in blood i will pay
damned beyond redemption i will never care
never was a desire so strong
for a tortured mind drained and hazy
escape from a cage of lure burnt and razed

yearn of the above world resists to clear
trapped beyond the gates of lies souls fear
silver light lured me gone is my salvation so dear
cry and trash scream and howl but she was near

dark light bring shades of damned for the haunted fright
silver light ignite the fire my heart burn so bright
pale light erase the past an existence futile but light
moon light give me strength dare me to the feral fight

nothing was so dear
for a failed heart hollow and empty
escape from a cage of lure burnt and razed
in your name i will howl
in blood i will pay
damned beyond redemption i will never care
never was a desire so strong
for a tortured mind drained and hazy
escape from a cage of lure burnt and razed

scream for winds of winter
escape from silvery fire frozen cold
dream for love’s embrace
diminished sense misguided by lure’s told
