#173 (darkness pierces every corner)

the ones you lost

have now been found

riding like mad

a merry-go-round

the one to hell

and back, my dear

don’t fear the reaper

for she’s near


the gift of life

the prize of dying

we grind and toil

and keep on trying

three wishes granted

if you dare

mischievous fairies

they don’t care


beyond the place

of broken bones

of broken dreams

and thunderdomes

the abyss-born is rising fast

from oceans wide and mountains vast

she wields her scythe

she tears apart

each fiber of our beating hearts


our darkest lady has arrived

her voice cuts deeper than a knife

inside the ashen halls of fate

where gods and demons were betrayed

she’s sipping from the holy grail

black dress, silk mask, a flowing trail


wide eyes so bright

red lips so lush

she rules the night

be still now, hush

as everything falls into place

and darkness pierces every corner

you might turn mad touched by her grace

and everybody left a mourner

#107(twisted fables)

numbness crept from ears to spine

while listening to your fancy rhymes

safety, guaranteed, riskfree

had fallen off the promise-tree

I shuddered facing North-North-West

wild gusts kept reddening my nose

snow flowers laid the world to rest

that night a paler moon arose

counted to three and turned to stone

my dreams galloping through the night

in empty skulls six candles shone

invigorating kiss of light

your droning kept me wide awake

as focus withered from my mind

I felt my patience slowly break

your twisted fables left me blind
