Tenebris

Vision failing, black veil encroaching. Something is not right. No light to define darkness. No shadow to pronounce light. What place is this? Umbral figure appears, cloaked in cosmic dust. Extending hand, beckons me near; cannot turn away. Voice, like splitting glacier demands payment. Quoniam sapientia carnis. Hands meet, my flesh seared encased in Mantle, […]

Scope

To mirror the world, Or to hide behind glass What better way to perceive the world than through the lens of our own truths? If we are what we have done, and not yet what we will be, what do we reflect? If the glass will not betray you, why do we hide? What really […]

Unshelled

An antimony core housed in a jacket of copper. A powder as dark as the shores of Iceland and a primer that grants the life-giving spark, to be expulsed from a lubricated chamber to ensure maximum accuracy. Unlimited potential all packed tightly in a 9 millimeter shell. But let us not fool ourselves. The intent […]

Transient

What are you afraid of, young one? That maybe, for once in your life, you’ve found happiness? Do you fear losing it? Good. That is how you know it matters, how special and fragile it is. Does that mean to forsake it? Of course not. Let yourself feel the power of this love, let this […]

Ebon

Must I show you? Walk with me, won’t you? You believe to know me, all that I was all that I am all that I will be. But you haven’t the slightest idea. I am the result of a thousand loves that have spanned across the ages. The blood of my ancestors courses through my […]

Solemnly

I know That I am no good for you. That I do not deserve you or the love that you could give. I know that I am not worthy of you; but listen. I know that I cannot promise you that dark clouds will never hover over our lives or that the future will bring […]

Trial

I pity the beings born in my time the most. They believe that it is well to not care to harden their hearts to suppress their own emotions and heart for the sake of what, exactly? How is it that we have become so ashamed of ourselves that we find our own emotions more blight […]

Gra\/ity

He calls you beautiful, or even sexy, I’m sure, But that’s where he stops, isn’t it? He’s never attempted to describe the way sunlight ignites your freckles, making the stars in the heavens burn in jealousy, or try his best to explain the precise moment when your laugh hits his eardrums, and makes him feel […]

Apex

Though I have desperately tried I cannot remember the first time your soul whispered unto mine, but I know you woke it, and it has never slept since. It was a gentle hush, a soft utterance, that brought my soul to its knees with the realization of two constants; that the sun will always fall […]

Equinox

I do not want simple seconds or microscopic minutes with you. I want seasons with you I want to experience the Spring of our love, when we bloom together far fuller than any rose or snapdragon we can say we have seen. When the young tendrils of our hearts and souls begin to take root […]
