A collection of my poetry. I'd like to write more, so this will probably get updated at least a few times as I do. This list does not even nearly consist of all poetry I've ever written, of course, but I included some older, untitled ones that I still really like. I hope you like my writing too.

Sanctuary

With each night comes dreary sanctuary
And its brumous shadows to which I cling
Content in my gloom till the dawn of day
When fiery beams burn and melt it away
I hide from the irking brightness light brings
And dream of the sun’s obituary

Nocturnal

Sullen twilight purifies atmosphere
Night enshrouds it in tenebrous hush
I wake, skulking past dismal dwellings
My subfusc dress flowing in darkness
A grim silhouette against barren trees
Cloaked by this ghostly realm's empty shadow
I gleefully wallow in caliginous dread
Creeping through my nocturnal solace

Realm

Faraway plains lay still in a distant realm
Between forgotten worlds and lost epochs
Its sky abandoned, a dark grey emotion
Enclosing blood ferns and desolate fields
Laden with towering, black pyramids
Rotating in stop motion, blinking sheen
The only sound a low flute's airy hum
Crystal doors seal carved, lifeless caverns
Lined with dust-ridden shelves full of ancient tomes
Their deathly runes hidden from fathoming minds
Lest hollow sand sink into oblivion
Frozen gaps melt and conjoin broken dreams
Morose winds wither as their secret lands dim
Memories untwine for their last frightful birth

Aura

Under the moon of ice I peel off my skin
I break off my bones, rip out my organs
Leaving a lake of blood upon their earth
Until I'm left as myself, a black aura
A bleak melody, an abyssal emotion
A wandering phantom, forsaking flesh
Leaving bricks of dust to their order
I rise above space to the hidden eclipse
Joining dusk, shadow, umbral sorrow
Transcending into the void of dreams
The only life that was ever worth living

Groove

A chill crawls through our window
Bulbs strewn along the ceiling
Magenta photons sprinkling
Into penumbral solitude

Dark tape steadily unwinds
Lonely voice sings for the void
Drenched bass guitar is plucked
Reverberates its deep gloom

Our heads bob to the rhythm
Hair covers eyes, black lips frown
Us shadows, the wind, the night
All lost in the desolate groove

World of Fright

One day, a girl laid in the sun
Watched all the humans having fun
So bored of it she grew, so done
That off she ran, her dusk begun

Into the earth, she dug so deep
All of the darkness, hers to keep
She listened to the monsters creep
And whisper lies to help her sleep

When she awoke, a world of fright
Surrounded her, made of moonlight
Through her eyes, both near and farsight
She found the beauty of the night

She walked along the path of skulls
To the ocean of all lost souls
There she drank from the bloody bowls
Potion that filled her heart with holes

In the forest where strange plants grew
Witches snatch for their gloomy brew
Lanterns shining with lights askew
Casting shadows where ravens flew

In the distance, mountains towered
Like teeth, biting something sour
The girl and the dripping flowers
Each breathed in the air so dour

With ghosts and spiders all around
She traveled into undertown
As she sat in a shack she found
Black kitties made their meowing sound

So now she knew that what she lacked
Was this place full of lovely black
She spoke before she hit the sack:
"I sure am never going back!"

Gloom

I want to hang out in an abandoned room
Away from all people, like a lovely tomb

Its silence letting all my emotions bloom
Happily basking in my own little gloom

Written May 15th, 2022

Mist

Alone in the mist
Pulsing thick like waves
Rock rests still and hushed
Deep in shafts of caves
Darkness singing lush
And void to assist
Air like powder blush
Creating all bliss
That which the earth craves

Written May 15th, 2022

Fracture

Thumping against grey walls
Broken legs of wooden chairs
The light scent of mold and swollen dust
Scattered like droplets of moonkissed rain
Empty mind surveys the fracture
Cracked and split with veins growing through
Twisted, clotted, ripped apart
Thoughts forced into the messy cuts
Memories shattering, emotions breaking
The hollow hole with liquid running stiff

Written May 11th, 2022

Wave

The dirt and the trees murmur
Under the crash of the wave of rain
Invisible against empty space

Beside roads silent for generations
Orange street lamps spotlight puddles
They stare and blink and watch

The void between each drop
Empty with the absence of nothing
Waiting for silence to drain

Wisp

Cradled between calm mountains
The layers of space dividing sound and sight
White thread wrapped around the rocks
Held up by the printless ice below

A wisp, following the breeze
Circling opaque, clear islands
On which the chill sets dearly
Blessing the air with its wish

Written March 21st, 2022

The mist that seeped into our minds long, long ago
Thoughts cascading peacefully to the black lake
Unseen, unknown, but felt all the same
We've been sleeping for so long it no longer matters
If our world is a speck of dust bleeding out
Or a flower field, each petal another seed
Stems reaching out like fleshless arms to the stars
To the dots blinking out into the dark as we fall

Written September 16th, 2021

To be atop a snow-covered mountain
The northern lights like glass sheets, reflecting the faraway sparkles
Glinting down, tendrils of care
Broad strokes of indigo, rivers and homes
Soft wind whispers without words
Silent snow caresses without fingers
And eyes close without worries

Written July 13th, 2021

From the center of the biggest star
A lone photon forces its way free
Flies silently forever
To the edge of space where the ice grows
Without form, without color
A cold without temperature
Dark snow encircles me
And finally the absence of time
The shadows block the empty doorways

Moldy skull
Rolling aching takes its toll
Grin for the majesty and wonder
As my lifeline bursts asunder

New ends grow into space
Cast upon my broken face
Far above the human race
The bloodless crack with thunder

Empty minds with evening dew
Bound together, bleeding too
Endless lust for a soft rebirth
Dripping icy freezing mirth
Eternal vitality, gentle restart
Inevitable finality, end of all hearts
