The moon is true beneath the stars,
But the falling of the season will follow.
Hearts will gather in pain whether sun or rain.
There is no place of earth that holds an infinite peace.
But the ever changing of our souls.
The expansion like the blooming rose in the start of spring.
The dew that settles upon each gentle blade of grass
A story to be told and a story to behold.
There is no place that will forever give you happiness,
It is a constant battle but a battle that is worth more than the metals of earth.
There is no power, be it God, the universe, or those we love,
That will forsake us.
For we lead ourselves to be forsaken.
We give in to a single tear and each after,
We fall for our own tricks but play them like a joker.
Placing cards up our sleeves to play on others to hide our pain.
Hiding within the frosted grounds of winters tears as if we are dead,
We crystallize our hearts with each lie
We die with each passing day that we do not try.
We may suffer from struggle but are shaped smooth from the pressure.
Like a rock to the howls of the ocean and the rushing of sand in each wave
What we feel is never permanent, but how we embrace it is.
How we view our hope, our faith, our love in within.
Either in a string or on our hearts.
Either we raise our swords or fall to them.
Our battles are never truly lost but learned.
With each swing of the blade comes a lesson.
With each breath comes new thoughts, new air, new hope.
With each waking moment life wishes to stop us,
Yet lift us like the fight of gravity and wind.
We whirl between our pains and our gains.
We can carry our baggage alone for only so long,
Follow a single track for so long,
Before our soul’s crack like a brittle branch of a tree.
We are something of magic but so quickly forget our miracles.
So quickly become selfish like the sun to day and the moon to night
We so quickly forget our graces, our gifts, our achievements
We are so blind to help we never ask
Too prideful to whisper our pains,
We crumble, but can be so strong,
Nothing lasts forever,
Don’t be a beggar of pain.
Why choose to water a dead plant,

A Wanderers Inn I have been traveling for thirty days. My horses are weak and I thirst dearly for water. My belly aches as hunger constricts my gut. I am fearful of death in such an unsuitable way. I have always seen myself dying in daring act of life. Be it in war or the saving of a child. Or maybe, even in the defeat of a dragon as I get one last blow with my blade before it strikes me down and it falls to its death beside me. Feeling its last breath of heat roll over my body as our eyes see only our fading souls. I have always thought my death would be glorious. Yet here I am, traveling alone with no more rations, nor water. My horses no longer walk with fervor but lackadaisical steps. And so I pray to find shelter before the cold takes us. Before the empty plains of barren trees and darkness finds us. I wish not to be detritus before my days. Decaying slowly to the maggots as my body lays helpless upon the earth. Becoming a gruesome vision of what lies inside. B
The Blameful Two The world broke as their hearts bled the shadows of their misery. Seeping upon the world, flooding with the scars of agony. Their eyes trembling beneath the moonlight as their blood stained hands shimmer. Their lips sewn as each is caught in a lie. Both bare, exposed to their duality. Their curtains drawn thus unmasks the bodies they have slain. The skeletons of truth dragged through the spoils of deceit. Each, unwilling to speak. Their cheeks flush in rose petals. Their skin taut to the anxiety of their arrest. They are now the victims of themselves and each the other. Two hell's preached in the underbelly of their weakness. The fraudulent thought in avoidance of pain. And now they stand as nude as the beginning of life, Adam and Eve. Shaking, they are without words. Silent, bearing only tears that fall to the blood soaked floors. The dark whirlpools of hypocrisy. Neither is without sin and neither is without murder. Their souls weep dearly a
The Moles Never Learn I found myself walking in the snow, my head aching with a sharp pain. I feel the back of my head, there is something crusted upon the rear of my skull. I dig my nail carefully into it. I can feel the crust collect beneath my nail like dirt. As my feet trudge through the sixteen inches of snow I look to my nail and there in my nail is blood. Dried cells of my body. Upon seeing this I become confused with worry. I place my hand once again upon my bloodied skull and began to examine it. I slide my index finger like the bristle of a broom, back and forth trying to see what wound had allowed such blood upon me. But after several seconds of feeling about, I find nothing. No scratches, no lacerations, nothing. My worried confusion musters down to mere confusion. I rub my eyes as I am strangely held with a slight daze. As if I have been interrupted from a deep sleep. And the evening air is not helping my situation. I am comfortably wrapped for a day tr
