Silent Moon

Silhouette
in the hazy morning
begins to fade
there is remembrance
of limitless joy
vanilla petals at the feet
warm rays on the face
staggering
the wishing tree
reaches out
saves me from slight
to crave the wrong
I lay upon the ground
upwards to take in
your life story
collapsing down
everything you took out
everyone you brought in
awakening flowers in December
that herald your passage

Influenced by listening to Mazzy Star.
Ohhh, that haunting voice from the 90’s!

 

inescapable

tell me what you get high on
what you love about the afterglow
how it thrills
what makes you shiver
tell it to me again, again, and again

show me how you smile
whisper some hopeful treasure
how it allures
sing your personality
tell it to me again, again, and again

tell me what you get high on
how you season the days
what you imagine romance is made of
tell it to me again, again, and again

show me how you smile
be it undressed or beautiful
dream us breathless and inescapable
tell it to me again, again, and again

c. gandy – the long blue sky version

This was born out of a short poem I wrote as seen below. Then, I decided to transform it into a song poem with reinforcement.

Le Chevalier

she was lost inside a castle.
her hopes bound to the stone.
love was ghosting in her heart.
teardrops collect on the floor
holding onto her visions.
long yellows shimmer a cold dim
before the air turned to gray.
breaks were forming in the sour kingdom.

she believed in heroes.
she believed in heroes.

daylight arrived with a rush of fury.
the sky defiant in crimson.
sentries launch blue arrows
that fall in silence.
they met in the courtyard
all her stories washed like waves
never to look backward.
the intertwine of fingers
takes away all the pain.
trust in the adventure
as they cling to alchemy.

she believed in heroes.
she believed in heroes.
