Deep In the Reach of Night
It is deep into the reach of night
The stars are curling their last ballet,
And the breezes rest silent in their trees.
No fanfare strains in the slips,
To bridle absolution
In golden cords of elemental magic and sound.
The world is at rest,
Waiting for dawn.
Neverland, come to me.
Whisper me off to some speckled horizon,
Where quiet veins of dying starlight
Still pale the sky with filigreed constellations.
Lull me to some rest in the hush of the deep.
Float me to some tomorrow;
For in that sigh of life,
What dreams may come
When I have fallen on the cusp of nothingness,
To close to shake the secrets from the void,
Too far to feel the dawn's warm kiss.
In that kiss,
Find me where I sleep.
I am waiting for that bittersweet journey.

Aspen Tree Requiem
She is sitting beneath an aspen tree
Watching the world go by
She is sitting beneath an aspen tree
Counting aloud
The number of people going past
Whom she'll never know
She is sitting beneath an aspen tree
Killing a helpless flower
Wondering if he loves her
She is sitting beneath an aspen tree
Holding a stone above her head
Forever saying her final words
:icondracomander:Dracomander 0 0
Today my words are few
Tomorrow they will flow
Yet now I wish to have them
Prefix, root and stem
To put down a thing
Which voices surely sing
In raptured tones
And measured moans
To evoke the praise
That wakes the days
And emancipates automaton drones

Your Lovelies
Say hello to the empty places
While I am gone away
Hold fast to my memory
As it whispers through your head
Echoes in your coffee cup
Pictures in the stream
Where have your lovelies gone?
The luster slips from your voice
When you sing your many songs
Angels used to fan the air
Behind your bolted door
Sing softly my love
Until your lovelies come back
Yesterday they sky was grey
The sun behind the clouds
The air was stale
My heart was slow
But happy—all the same
I wish you were here
So I could call your name
And see your face reply
Smile away the cloudy grey
And fill the empty places
With your returned lovelies

The Orange Glow
There stood alone on cobbled street
Two lonely lamps in orange glow
These lonely guards led tired feet
Those passersby who walked below
And ever still did streetlights stand
In faithful stead and faithful glow
Between their lights a darkness spanned
Where star-crossed lovers dreamed to go
Great dreams could be in shadow's land
That place beyond the orange glow
No tide could pull the streetlights' stand
That held aloft the shadow's foe
But there between the two alight
Who whispered soft into the night
They longed to feel each other's glow
A warmth they lost so long ago
When from the sky a pouring came
That rendered their whole purpose vain
But there they sat, so far apart
Yet still so close from glow to dark
So find within a dream you dream
A dream that falls beyond the glow
And dream it soft outside the beam
To reunite the orange glow
That grew apart so long ago

The Sadness
The sadness is that well that rises inside you
When all is said and done
When what was said wasn't done
And what was done needn't be said
The sadness is what keeps you whole
When worst comes to worst
And worse than that
When best comes to naught
The sadness is what paints your dreams
When your life's a nightmare
And your nightmares give life
To your narcotic dreams
The sadness is where you go at night
When you've places to go and people to see
And no feet to carry you
And no destination to meet
The sadness is what brings you alive
When you count your losses
And lose count somewhere in the clouds
Only to fall with the rain back to earth
The sadness is what tells you wrong
When the world gives you lemons
And you make lemonade
The sadness is the rainy day
The softly falling snow
The last goodbye
The last hello
The hand you no longer hold
The smile you no longer see
The sadness is the end
And the sadness is love.

At a loss to find my glimmer.

You search until your eyes are sore, for what was there, but is no more

hey, just found you on FB and was hoping maybe we could both set aside a couple of hours to read each others work and talk shop! i am definitely eager to advance my writing skills, unfortunately just can't afford taking another creative writing class, independent of getting an entire degree. course-by-course ventures are freakin' expensive!!!
