Courting Melancholia

I have been watching my small patch of sky for hours
Steel gray clouds enshroud this cold September morning
And I, A sleepless poet
Mourn the brilliant stars that shared Cancer’s waning moon
only hours ago.
Melancholia has been courting of late,
An old lover I had left years ago,
I have refused his advances
But Winter is coming and my Ocean is so far away.

Depth-less Eyes

Falling fast into depthless eyes
Feelings are fighting to see the light
Holding back from an angelic smile
Is she ready to give her heart away for life

Thinking thoughts of two forever
Love in sunshine and stormy weather
Fear is fading into a smile
But darkness keeps her from his side

Her demons haunt her wanting heart
Shadows keeping her from a perfect start
Love is breaking her will inside
As she gazes into depthless eyes.
