Iridescent Moon

Iridescent moon calls to the night
Through clouds shimmering
Reflection on water’s heart
In the distance silence imprisons
The essence of lost nymphs
Water’s glow evermore
Filled with tears of weeping sirens
Lost love
Forbidden temptation

Desire, hunger screams
Out from the iridescent moon
As the sigh of want
Echoes hauntingly
Moan of need dances

Back to stillness


Horrible images running
 through my head

Gun shots sounding off
in the distance

I see a blood moon setting
 Awaiting a sunrise
that will never come

Tears fill the land
Cries ring forth
The wailing so
Horrid, I close my ears
To the sound

Putrid flesh I smell
Hangs in the night air
Moaning and weeping
Shrill voices sing out
To a God gone and forgotten

Blood flows like a river
Souls carried away
In the torrent

Lifeless, ghost of youth
Pass away
Horrid images running through
My head

Save them, save them
The walking dead

Too many images castrate
Them from my mind

I see the spirits of the
Lost and forgotten
Gehenna is their home

Images to bare, my hell
So alone
So alone
