Trace of red teardrops

Dewdrops in the air

Pearls scattering on my face

the first of the rains


Heads hung low they weep

Zoroastrian filters

drizzle through their plight


Drop by drop gathers

weight of a hundred stones cast

millenary fate


Maidens in tatters

their backs particles of flesh

sprinkled across choice


A dash of freedom

drips through time that seeps in age

beads of silver pain


A splash in the pond

Murky waters now stirring

trace of red teardrops

Every Time Mother would shed a Tear

Every Time Mother would shed a Tear

Words carry more than their single might

The sticks will wither, the stones will bring unto them dust

 

Glorious sun in your heat I bask

Amnesia my creed, darkness my Heart now befalls

 

Within the nothingness flowers bloom

I know of airborne roots that connect with the thin air

 

Of flowers and men my knowledge slight

Experience mother of broken conventions thrust

 

Betrayal is more than simple task

Winding through the depth of wretched Hearts misery calls

 

Alice dilating outgrew the room

Hatter rattled kettles, Cheshire cats smiled debonair

 

The moon counted her pennies so bright

Many a jumping cow had crossed bridges in thought’s crust

 

Growing silence, now stillness I ask

Path within me to Netherland child in me recalls

 

Incense burnt fragrant hallways to groom

The fumes built in fogs that covered pathways for the pair

I walk in valley shadowed by Fear

Frothing horses stand by me in my hands their harness

 

Wisdom of millennia in me grew

Clocks of Time winding back false identity withdrew

 

Every Time Mother would shed a Tear

History would reel struck by paces of wilderness

 

In the name of Fathers I once knew

Let the morrows of void be my only tomb that slew

Shielding armours wear

The weight of a million stones

Sinking upon Heart

.

Straining muscles tear

The rippling of the ribcage

Prelude to Heart scars

.

In all endeavours

Lack of soul bears muddy ends

Swamp rises with greed

.

Spell Heart of Dragon

Ask for more than words’ measures

To build a new creed

.

Whispering Dungeon

Awaits those who bring deceit

Into House of Light

.

Cursing mocking bird

Befalls those who bring conceit

Into House of Dark

.

Balance in Houses

Mends between Heart and Mind’s play

Subtle game of cards

.

Out of balance sways

Thirsting Heart that rises bright

Taking Dark for Light

.

Look into Abyss

And cloak not your inner qualms

Secret Dark creates

.

Look into Divine

And shine bright your inner face

Light in Heart you know

.

Authenticity

Spelling rarer by the day

Fighting through the night

.

Make your life serene

Between the Truth and the Lie

Choose the wiser cut
