My Empire, Collapsed

So this is what my empire has been built upon: A cracked foundation, that even now, As I sign edicts to expand my domain And further the reach of my dominion, Crumples beneath my feet, Leaving every effort to improve--- To expand and prosper--- Hollow and futile. Though the season for another harvest draws near,... Continue Reading →

Me, Vulnerable

Here am I, Vulnerable and exposed, Because unlike the craven and weak, I will not succumb to puerility--- Deluded by ego Into believing there is strength In shutting the world off, Denying it my love and truth. Revealing myself to her fully, Whether in acceptance or rejection, There is value in this soul's existence, And... Continue Reading →

The Sins We Cannot Forgive

In spite of the pomp and confidence You exude every waking moment, Your silence is baffling; Nary a sound slips from your tongue, At least not in my presence, Because your words are reserved For the debased and debauched Who would only drag your soul To the depths of a hell you think you crave....

Specters

Here we sit across the void, Two specters Watching each other clandestinely, Never speaking, never touching, Just hoping the other will slip first: I, the vacillating spirit, Who weaves in and out of your consciousness--- At one moment the center of your attention, And the next nonexistent in your realm; You, the mute celestial, Punishing...

Soldier

I am your soldier— Your guardian— Sworn to protect, And loyal until the end. On this battlefield I brandish my sword in your defense, To save you from the pain That threatens to invade your psyche And the torment That would drag your soul to hell. For you I fight, kill, and die, Knowing full... Continue Reading →
