Brand New Page

Too painful was the pen to hold...
As acidic-words of hate it told
It dipped and ripped my heart in two
With an ink of deepest crimson hue 

Traced from my heart, each verse it sketched 
No holding back... it etched deep regrets 
The letters rained upon the page 
Rivers of remorse each sentence raged

The paragraphs, it emptied still 
Till of my soul it did have its fill
So I, now barren... crawl away
To face the world with a brand new page

Tenebrosity

I thought that I saw you... that you saw me
On a deeper plane which no eyes could glean
Surpassing the words, that between us danced 
Yet, pixelations... were all that were seen 

See I'm a fool when it comes to romance 
Still my soul would seek yours... given the chance
I see clearly now that I was deceived 
Your penchant unveils you... at second glance 

Was it my own reflection... I perceived
Or tenebrosity casting its seed? 
Perhaps sheer desperation was to blame 
Through my chasm of ever-expanding need

My imagination... I hope to tame
You'll no longer be in fate's window-pane
My mirror, the pond... steamy shower-pane 
I'll see you no more... my dreams they will wane

Delf

In moments of obliteration 
I steal away in contemplation 
As the empty is too hard to bear
Would only solidify... if shared

So I seek a nook beyond my mind 
Where the faint of heart won't tread to find
As the path is thorny, plagued by truth 
With an underbelly lost on youth

Pure minds, who've not yet the apple had
Who've only savoured one shade of sad
A bliss often missed and ne'er perceived 
Until in retrospect... hearts they bleed 

For, what I once desired... haunts me still  
I have no power against its will
And yet in gratitude, peace I find 
As it quells the potholes, pain has mined  

So from the dank darkness of my delf 
I have, in time, gained a richer wealth 
One without the woe, would ne'er have been
My greatest blessings... remained unseen
