Gentle Vigilante

One
two
three
leave a trail for me
sweet
reach
sour
bitter too
all clues
to the destiny
the fates
the twisted desires
deep within my soul.
I dream
knives
ropes
swords
stilettos too
dangerous tools
brought in close
watching
life bleed from their eyes.
Souls depart
a last breath
watch as they strive
to reach heaven’s heights
beneath
velvet red fire
caresses
ropes tied
dragging beneath
demons gape
maws await
evil is consumed
while with bright eyes
shining forth
vengeance
I watch
sardonic grin
upon twisted lips
stone flipped
between fingers agile
as I await
the next death sentence.

Soar the Dawn

Stood
lost upon a plain
a mountain
a chasm
cumbersome load
upon my shoulders
wanting
to lay it down
relieve myself of this burden
carried through time
through years
an albatross
tied
I thought.
Shackled
to wrist
to waist
to ankle
never to be free.
Forever
alone
beneath a mask of fear
catacombs of anger
deadly desires.
Golden rays
break beyond horizon
symbolic
throw away
remnants of past
freeing
finally
from neglect
from dusty shelves
the truth
of my inner self.
