A Siren Named Skye

A Siren Named Skye

I know a siren named Skye.

If you know her, count yourself lucky.

She runs this town with hair like a crown,

and she’ll kill you with a glance or smile.

Some power grows slow from deep within.

Some power is imbued.

Some power falls from the heavens above.

Some power is known within.

Shining makes the world aware,

of the glow that makes her shine.

Others will not like this glow,

but others, still, will be drawn.

She loves and loves

in circles all around,

but where is the love that cannot be found?

It’s pulled from the universe, so vast and broad.

It’s conjured, like magic, from the skyes.

Nobody will ever understand who she is;

that’s not the point.

Showing the world what she is capable of,

she longs for most from this life on high.

Without Light

Without Light

Add a little warmth to your life;

Feel a bit of something new change you,

And in the big scheme of things, you either yield or eradicate.

Dawn reveals the transition;

Visible but taken over by your additive,

Upon the horizon you begin to disappear;

Without light, you’re confused with black.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

He wanted to make beautiful ribbons, he pled, he wanted to make beautiful ribbons.

He wanted to make something beautiful, he fled, he wanted to be something beautiful.

A sane person calls, they fed, a sane person eventually calls.

Screams and shouts for help, they led, relief from the terror over staring, they shed.

He needed to be something more, I said.

You instructed to be something more, I read.

I wanted to be something more, I bled.
