..the poems here are some of the poems i have in my latest project.
I. FEAR THE SHADOWS
In the cawing of the crow in flight
Hear the knell and cower in dread
For you bear death’s rune on your head
You have boasted with a slap on your chest
You have dipped into the hornet’s nest
You have poked your finger in my eyes
His pen is honed from the bones of the dead
His crimson ink, blood from the living bled.
He writes on parchment of living skin
Words, with breathing claws, curved and keen
IV. DEATHLY SILENCE
Like the gentle breeze teasing the leaves
Like the quiet bat in the eaves
He crouches in the silence of your fears
To make your whispers piercing spears
V. HOLDING THE DEVIL BOUND?
Can fetters of crafted metal hold
Or the stone walls of prison cold
Hold me bound? AM I not the breeze?
Shall I not escape them with ease?
While the golden debt, unpaid, remains
You’ll remain the captive of his chains
Never shall you be free of the Devil’s snare
Nor break the chains that keep you here.
