The last rhyming poem I ever wrote.  Although I liked to write in rhyme, I was never very good at it.  :)

The glass broke
As I threw it across
The dull wooden floor.
Like silver flakes of snow,
Chips of glass fell to the ground,
Sparkling in the sun ray
From my bedroom window.

Mar. 21st, 2005 @ 12:42 am Contradiction

I felt the cool rain strike my warm face,
Mixing with warm tears.
A distance of a thousand years,
The time of a million miles.
A bursting heart within a barren soul.
Two hearts, two minds, two lives
     joined as one,
A perfect world in a shattered glass bottle,
To be looked upon and repaired...
The Earth cries for me.

Mar. 21st, 2005 @ 12:39 am Evil Gaze

Through the evil gaze
of his soul-searching eyes
he peers into the deepest, darkest
reaches of my mind.
He tells me things about myself
the no one knows
and revels in the knowledge.
He laughs manically
and uses his sinister smile
to make me feel like the small person
I know I am.

About this Entry
Mar. 16th, 2005 @ 10:41 pm For Shroud

This was written for my husband, Shroud, about 5 years ago...

Our world began in passion
and words of romantic intrusions
that never should have been spoken.
Once the words were uttered,
we so entered a desperate and dire
state of unrestricted love.
Mutual respect, kindness, and understanding
that I have never known before
were ours in abundance.
And love, a feeling I thought was dead in me,
returned to aide my shrivled, dying heart
back to life.

Mar. 16th, 2005 @ 10:35 pm Love With Death
A blinding light shines from behind his deeming eyes.
I bear my claws, attempting to sway him from attack.
Wielding his scythe above his head, the lifeless, turbulent man steps
     towards me and stops.
"I dare you!" I shout into the barren night.
With one swift motion his scythe cuts through the thick blackness
     and rips into my hollow chest.
Dropping the scythe, he forces his hand through my cavity to seize my
     dying heart.
Suspending it in front of me, he laughs demonically and says, "I wanted to
     touch that which only I could have broken."
Returning my shriveled heart to my chest, he heals my wounds with loving
     words, soft kisses, and a gentle embrace.
Someday he will be the death of me.

Mar. 16th, 2005 @ 10:33 pm Hunger
Trapped within the world I have created,
I hunger for only you.
The pain of desire, overwhelming.
Blood filled tears stain my aged face.
I would sprout wings and fly, but I cannot
for I am a cat prowling the night for my
     next victim.
When I try to love, I only devour.

Current Mood: nervousnervous

I decided it was time to start posting my poetry other places.  I'm in the process of trying to get a compliation published, even if I have to self publish it, but that project has been put on hold until after we move.   Most of the poetry I will be posting has been previously published in various places, but I will add new stuff as I write it.

I'm hoping to post a few short stories as well before we lose internet for awhile.

I hope you enjoy my work.

Current Mood: contentcontent

I recently decided to make a community for Macabre Manor here at LiveJournal for those that would rather post here than at Macabre Manor's Community Center.

I'm not sure how much actual use this community will get, but it's here for those that would like to use it.  :)  However, I highly suggest checking out Macabre Manor's Community Center from time to time considering there is so much more I can do with the software there.  I'll try to make all the updates here I can, though.  :)

Welcome, my friends, to another nightmare...
