Scythed Desires

eerie silence swathes empty folds
whirls forlorn heart to sonic olds,
wilted Jasmine on a moonless night
beholds the stars in fading twilight,

chisel monsoons a benumbed sapphire
misty forebodings scythed her desire,
chilly breeze echoes vows concocted
plays a requiem for lovers parted,

forbearance I hold in thistled palms
holy incense no more my dolor calms,
solitaire dreams lie in broken urns
on a forbidding winter a soul smoulders and burns…

Unquenched Shadows..

Starless night
a lone Moon blooms,
like my Heart’s forbidden desires
the crescent glooms.

Broken soul
shattered dreams,
yearning love
betwixt hollow screams.

floweth music serene
as I danced with the wind,
Unquenched shadows
on the wings of darkness I pinned.

A Hooter, a growl,
squeaky creeps.
Crickets make love,
a tadpole leaps,

Starless night
a lone Moon blooms,
like my Heart’s forbidden desires
the crescent glooms.
