Mind Shards

:: Mind Shards::

Pick through the pieces of my broken heart

Try to find one that carries no stains

There is blood on your hands

Brands on your skin

Wash them but they won’t fade away

Pick through the debris of my storm tossed soul

Look for a glimmer of light

Darkness you see

Darkness you smell

Notice the lack of any life

Pick through the shards of my shattered mind

I hope you are taking this all in

My slivers of history

My double edged memories

This is why I never let anyone in.

No End To Night


Falling faster then light can move
Quickly sucked into her world of gloom
Struggling to reach the diminishing light
Fighting the fear that holds her so tight
Her heart is in turmoil begging for hope
Her mind is in denial not wanting to cope
A soul receding into the darkening gloom
The nightmare casting a spell on the moon
Traces of feathers at the edge of the cliff
No sign of struggle
No sign of a slip
No trace of her halo
No glimpse of her light
The angel once again
Trying to end her fight
Angels are forever
And so are their wings
No matter how broken
No matter how weak
I cry for the angel who is ending her life
For she will never see the end of night
