Go Sleep!

This eerie night is evocative, my dear,
as darkness engulfs our every sight,
the frosty wind – how desolate and drear,
so free your mind from all your sighs.

Let a lullaby sing you to sleep,
let the feathers brush your hair,
so that you may freely leap,
into reveries through your dreamy lair.

The Sinner

Down! Down to the burning grounds,
wallow in filth as your regrets scream;
the barks and growls of the dungeon hounds,
shivering flames atop a rusted beam.

Has the ostrich so many wrongs,
to bury her head as the sinner would;
though lamp black vapours shall hold his tongue,
the clarity of guilt under a witch’s hood.

Dissonant crows on this quest embark,
away from the self all truths are cast,
a tragic tale of an innocent boy,
who sacrificed all for a tainted heart.

Nimble steps for a scripted hunt,
though mirage is all in a silvery pond,
with each deceit her feathers darker still,
such is the birth of an abyssal swan.
