Melody my lady passing

How she love to sing

A little lilt dystopian

That makes a jolt to think


So blink and you can miss her

As she whistles going by

Block your ears

So you won’t hear her

Or yourself….when you cry

Your Arms!


In trust I jumped

Got landed

In a corner of my mind

Through trust

I jumped

Got stranded

In a land too dark to find

With eyes that will not

Ever see nor ever hear

With ears that will not

Listen to the whispers in the fear

So now I live

With echoes

Lost in caves a maze

Of mists

And now I sleep

With demons dealing

Dreams to soothe your myths

No Link


There is no link

I say

That sits inside

The chink I say

That sits inside my armour

If you think

The love I crave

That drives me to the brink

That lets inside

The cruelty of your

Turn aside

So much it hurts

I have no pride

No place to hide

But soul reside to

Sink into this armour

Locked inside

I say there is no link

Inside the chink

That holds the thinking

You don’t rue

The loss between

You slew me when you  

Looked right through me

Nothing doing

You eschew me

There’s no link

Streaming out
My scream of doubt
Is silent but is there
Always behind the words
I say the care I claim
The thoughts I pray
The past I lay
The future cast
It come what may
I dare declare
It scare me where
I know not how
To live the lack
Lack lacking of control
With the unknowing roll to reel…
