Twin Helix Comet Vision

Were you nearly snatched by claws of death,

Would Mine be the first flesh to feel your breath?

Would you throw your arms around my neck,

And squeeze me tight til there was nothing left?

I’ve seen the chaos in the stars and light,

By witches’ peril— that also their might,

I’ve crossed the veil between my mind and sight,

So hear me well, together: this, our plight.

Battles both within and those without,

Rocking cages, inside is our bout,

Can’t live with, but cannot thrive without,

Banish now, all that remains in doubt.

The steps are taken, path is walked aflame,

And burn together, one, our spirits’ name,

There is a test, but heed my words: no game,

Together we will pass or fail the same.

Hermetic Lover’s Parallax

An ever-growing addendum

To the madness of illogic’s throne

I see you sitting regally

Still searching for a home.


Piercing eyes, they scan the world

An atom at a time,

Laser precision cuts through space

But the scan is easy to side-step.


Here I stand, here I stand,

Made vulnerable to you.

I don’t want to live the way we do,

I know you feel it deep inside of you.

Here I am, here I am, Continue reading

A Druid’s Love-Note

Lo, elusive Dryad,

Yes, I see you there!

Frolicking about the copse,

Sky-clad without care!


Greetings little Dryad,

Hath thou come to dance?

Pink and pretty petals part,

When thou deign’st romance.


Happy little Dryad,

Leaves so soft and lush,

Feel my whispers ‘twixt thy boughs,

Worry not, to blush.


Mischievous One, Dryad,

Sparkling so gay!

I shall teach thee how I please,

Solid, woody ways.


Concupiscent Dryad,

Moss so damp with dew,

Biting nicer than thy bark,

Mine be as that, too.


Sweet and gracile Dryad,

Let us plant this seed,

Be now mine, and I be thine,

Sating each one’s need.

Summer Oath

We soon will face a trial like none before,

A separation meant to test our will,

Although we can’t know what else lies in store,

Your countenance will rest in my mind, still.

My love for you is like a Northern snow,

It coats and brightens everything I see,

While you’re away I long for you to know,

I’ll keep your treasured heart so close to me.

It won’t be long until we’re joined again,

Despite the parting sorrow that we face,

This may feel like a distance without end,

For you, forever, my soul holds a place.

Don’t forget the tests we’ve overcome,

The love between us cannot be undone.

The Sombre Sonnet

I make no promise that I cannot keep,
And keeping them is harder than it seems,
But when a challenge, my way, comes to creep,
I’ll fight it for you, here in life or dreams.
Sometimes these trials seem more than we can bear,
Sometimes direction takes its toll too far,
While consequences of this world aren’t fair,
I’ll hide my hands while you return a scar.
Reminders on my face and soul alike,
I’ll cherish them, and not forget, I know,
I’ll elevate my heart upon a pike,
Remembering we reap that which we sew.
I sew now love into thy gentle frame,
And wait for seasons to return the same.

Hare Today, Gone Tomorrow

Runny runny little bunny,
Your cotton-tail does bounce,
And welcomes friends and predators,
With every fluffy ounce.

How quickly does your hind-end rise,
How neatly turns your head,
And invites mates and monsters to
Go lonely, sad, unfed.

Runny runny little bunny,
Your lengthy ears desired,
So silky smoothe and graceful, like
Elaborate webs, expired.

How shifty dart your eyes about,
How neatly spread your claws,
How quickly you can make it out
Of reach of hugs and jaws.

Runny runny little bunny,
I wonder how times pass,
When never are you sitting still,
But saunter through the grass.

How sweetly rings your chirpy sound,
How cheerful is your song,
Should one, who for you, longs, come ’round,
How quickly you are gone.
