In the labyrinth of darkest dreams, I am the pitch
of coldest night

In the solace of the blackest dawn — I seek you


Where unblinking eyes sojourn in forests wild,
the kiss of ash and sanguine bespeaks
Whispers of a thousand skies rust and fall
The syrup of the gloaming hums thru the trees..
Obsidian mists bejewel the hunger of my soul,
like silhouettes dissolving into the poise of talons
In murk of scorched grove, Witches tears drip from
the leaves… caressing the tip of my tongue

Acrid winds scented by forbidden incantations,
slither deep into the prelude of Love's sacrament
In shallow of ebon fields I bask in beautiful decay,
as black roses drift in ballads of nocturnal reverie
Beneath the providence of dark stars, I am the river;
the ink which you lust — mystic poison & naked flesh
Undress thy ache upon sable breath, drink my gaze
Covet my shadow, unto forever you shall drown

I have a hard time reading your work, because I feel like it is calling to me and I do not want to hear what it is saying.. complicated, I know

Your poems remind me a bit of Coleridge, I don't know if this is a compliment, but I hope so. I like his works and yours too.

This is wonderful! :) I simple love the imagery that you've created., I can honestly read this and close my eyes and imagine that i'm far away from my computer, that its' dark and there's trees all around, to me there's a certain suspense to it.
This is just amazing!
