Glass Shards

She strayed from the sea shore,
that she was told to stay by
as a child
And looked for a single glass shard,
on an endless beach of sand,
cutting her feet bare with glitter.

The night came through,
like an eclipsing sun
and moonlight cried on her,
while she sat and stared
at the dead stars in the broken sky;
they faded as the memory of the
implosiasions that happened light years ago
finally caught up with them.

The ones left
formed together, made a person.
A girl so brave,
all the knights on the round table
would bow down to her.
So ferocious and fantastically clever,
that all the men in the land
would pray at her alter,
and such a Daisly dreaming beauty,
that all the eyes in the word
will come and desire.

Right there and then
the girl staring up in the dancing sky
fell in love right there and then
with a girl
that she was yet to become.

Glitter Filled Gutters

I
Come on down to the dreaming district,
my name is Bonnie
and I guess you’re Clyde.

Drink it down with a bottle of wine
Or vodka and moonshine,
If your mind can take you that high.

Come on down to the wasteland.
Where sad girls, are turned into
pretty diamonds with cracks ingrained.

They blag their way into hotel rooms
Laying half dead in an broken bed.
Kissing the beautiful felons into freedom

II
Now,
Where were you babe?

When this town we built on dead roses
started falling apart?

The Kray’s they are dead.
and the filth run the game

And the dreamers who would have
given their lives,
gave up instead.

Comment Je Suis Mort

I shall carve out the stars
from the twinkling sky
that my dreams are trapped in.
I’ll make my eyes sparkle
like those unbreakable diamonds

then I will capture the moon
with all its profound
loneliness, cut
a hard-hearted shape
and place it into
a beating chest

and all the planets in the
heavens above
shall merge into one.
Through
the tempestuous rage
that will occupy
my mad mad mind.

In my final act
in this magical dream,
I will usurp all
the seas that hide among
the stormy shore
and take all the desire
and run it through my veins
until
my heart flutters

dead.
