Champion’s Respite

Battle weary soul
tired 
so so tired
pretending life is good
when blackness pervades
consuming 
devouring 
life as I understand it.
Time has come
to cast off the  blinders
to cast off expectations of others.
Climb that mountain
reach on high
deep breath
release
gone are the bad
in with the good.
Done so well
protected for so long
Paladin of might
Scourge of the black night
hunting
killing
slaying dreaded beasts
before they can release
poison
seeping into body
oozing into pores
consuming…..
No!
Fight
strong
the tide has turned
blackness pushed back
diligent Knight
I thank thee
for all the years
in which you held my life.

Unnamed Poem #1

finally.
finally i can see
what the world does
when looking at me.
i was lost
now i am found
laughter
bittersweet 
trips from tongue
drunk upon freedom
spin in circles
the sky
it is my limit.
limitless.
limitless I now be
there is nothing
not one damn thing
to stand in front of me
command my desires
free i be 
strong 
true
tigress on the hunt.
stalk the night
prey in sight
low growl
silent glide
never know I am there
until….. 
it is too late.
i am lost no longer.
i am free once more.
jagged nightmare
careful you do not awake
teeth at your throat
claw to heart
i am coming for you
death’s deadly desire.
