Literature
The embodiment of a funeral
Let us lower our heads,
as we say a few words,
while you spend some time with the dead…
(You should have been there for the living)
Soft whimpering set the mood…
Oh Lord, please save that poor soul,
threatening to jump into the grave –
At least, everyone knows,
who loved the most.
Now let us all say… Amen.
It isn’t exactly a new thing,
We’ve seen them all before –
The mourners, the jumpers -
the ones who finish the job…
With each shovel full of soil
they feel a little less deprived,
a little less sorrowful.
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
as your body returns to earth,
so does our conscience…
Burry the casket
beneath a heap of sand…
Just as soon, walk away and forget.

Literature
So much magic in one breath
You found me the last
enchanted dead flower,
hiding between the green grass
and brought me -
hope to wish on…
So may years since that day,
I stare over my morning cup.
My eyes greet yours
as they always do.
I savour the smile
that magically lights the room,
A house filled with trinkets and dreams.

Literature
oh its an orgy alright
In the corner sits a stranger,
tending to a whisky and his cigarette.
Tables are filling up…
Guys, girls, couples and singles.
Smoke fills the room,
as the band plays sultry music.
Fellow on the makeshift stage,
makes love to his contrabass -
Plucking the strings, making it sing,
before he spins it and takes it for a dip -
You just know he’s having sex with it.
A songbird carries long hard tunes,
while moving through the crowd.
She will relieve you of your money
while jealous wives and girlfriends watch.
Tipp the songstress, while she sits on your lap…
DON’T - and she will pull your tie so tight you choke,
before moving on to the next.
And if… she leaves you her feather boa…
Oh boy, you’re getting lucky tonight.

Literature
August
Kicking up leaves,
as he twists and turns
in song and dance.
My wind swept lover
whispers a conversation,
the words carried on a breeze
and he offers me his hand,
which I gladly accept.
Enthralled in the moment,
I sway with him.

Literature
Embrace
The slow rise and fall
of your salt stained chest,
gently lulls my sorrows to sleep.
You lay to rest my fears
outside the boundaries of your arms,
keeping me safe…
against your heart.

Meaningless symbols
Collections of promises
Pacify the daft
Please do not think me the fool
Your promise holds no value

Spill my blood here,
heavy as a rock fall.
Wash it away with tears…

Literature
Undisguised
My body is a barren land,
naked of truth, lies and flesh…
Stripped clean by a murder
of scavenging crows.
My soul lying bare at your feet…

Literature
Anguish
Slowly dying,
the smoldering embers of my lamented soul…
Cinders swirling away,
leaving with the gust.

Despair
On merciless days,
I wonder aimlessly alone,
lost in hopelessness.
Desperately reaching out,
not finding your guiding hand.
:iconDesnaMona:DesnaMona

Literature
Lost
Why so lost and lonely my love?
Don’t you head my voice calling anymore from the dark of night’s storm?
Can’t you see the lighthouse on the shore banks no more?
Does it no longer give you hope when there is little?
Nevermore have I wanted to reach out to you so much…
Help you find your way back…
Hear my voice – oh beloved one – I asked the wind to carry it to you!
Why won’t you, no longer let it guide you?
Where murderous waves, shore and land meet…
Where driftwood wash up from ship’s water crypts…
There you will find bare footprints that lead from the water, to lead you out
this tumultuous ocean of paining thoughts…

Literature
Heartbreak
Insanity clouds my eyes
and spills from my lips
all because
I touched happiness
in its barest form.
Love.

Forgotten Poems
My head
is the graveyard
of tens and hundreds and thousands
of fleetingly written
forgotten poems.
But all the feelings still live on.

Loneliness
Sometimes-
but much more often
than I'd like-
the only company I have
are the voices whispering through my mind,
my only friends
these shining silver blades
grinning at me
with blood red smears.

Choose One
The hollow sleep
from sleeping pills
the same blue as my bedsheets
vs.
the hell of nightmares
marionetted by a brain
as splintered as my heart

Literature
Fall
Let the storm rage outside my window,
let the thunder scream out in my agony.
Step outside-
let the wind rip me off the edge
and the rain pelter my vulnerable body.
Let lighting set the sky ablaze,
let the soaked-through grass absorb my warm
crimson blood.
:iconGlasses-And-Blades:Glasses-And-Blades

Literature
Losing
White flowers in my hair,
red slits in my wrists.
Blazing stars in my eyes,
bleary tears on my cheeks.
Trembling smile on my lips,
roaring anguish in my heart.
Life threaded through my words,
death blocking my throat.
I swear I'm all right,
but I'm losing the fight.

To be honest, I thought I deleted my Deviant account. Seems I'm not really that good at deleting things or it staying forgotten.

I haven't had much to say or do and I got tired of people on social media that somehow never seem to understand that I live in the real world and can't take part in their silly games.

For those who appreciate that I am a person with feelings... I compiled a poetry journal. You might want to go have a look, maybe purchase it?

Hello! I just wanted to say thank you for the watch, and the fav! I'm sorry for taking so long, but I haven't been active here for a looong time now, so I'm afraid you won't get to hear very much from me. But you never know. :)
