Untitled Dark Fantasy Poem #2

Crested
running hands
sleek stone
carved
head leaned
tears gleaned
Queen
her Dragon killer.
Tangled webs woven
when they dance
the night sky
playground
for two bound
by fire and light.
Tumbled
laughter floating
racing
between stars
dreams sought
found
flight
over winded waters
racing mermaids
beneath the sea.
Growing up
losing faith
Dragon goes away
to be re-found
reclaimed
when traitors have called
destroying strength
belief in oneself
calling rage
vengeance
calling for might.
Hear Dragon Roar.
Hear Queen shriek.
Hie from the throne
toss the crown to the floor
traitors all
hung from the cross beam
warning to all others
danger will be found
for those who try to take
the throne of Godlessness.

Pained Expression

Startling
glaring
snow diamonds
glitter
under milky moon
air so cold
breath hangs
frozen
crystal for a moment
before fading away.
Standing
watching
shadows creep
wailing winds
skeletal branches reach skyward
mournful melody
wolf’s howl
eerie counterpoint.
Stepping
one foot
other to follow
stray path
forked roads
I go
looking
not for riches
not for love
nor desire
I look for self
one lost
unto childhood
pain
memories
addiction
on goes the wretched list.
I am not proud
part of me though they are.
Today I try to compose
fragmented soul
one whole
girl
woman
Queen
I will become
never again to kneel.
