The Blackened Garnet

My spotlight is perfect
Embracing and comforting 
Allowing you to shine in
Your most perfect way
I'll raise you up 
I'll make you feel like a god 
I'll provide flawless love
But lies make a spotlight cold
Treason of the heart is unfixable 
And everything I gave is 
Easily stripped
Until you're left watching 
Another bask in my warmth

She danced alone
With no one watching 
She moved as she chose
No one dictating her strings
The night was calm 
And the music was inside her
Night's silvery orb turned her hair
To black moonsilk as she 
Pirouetted and pliéd
It made her pale, naked flesh
Glow as she 
Relevéd and retiréd 
She danced for every minute of
The Longest Night
The morning light would stiffen her joints  
And stone would caress her
Until the moon could dominate
The sky again

Phone call
Anything to
Stop me from 
Ending myself

Your scent has long since faded
Even your voice just a haunting memory
But your eyes still burn
Right to my core
An unforgettable face
That tortures me still 
And I've wasted every shooting star
On you since you left

The Climb Down

Floundering for footing
Often falling
Ripped and bleeding palms
Everyone ignores the blood
Violated trusts
Evicerated feelings
Rendered worthless

I'm just trying to breathe
But it's quicksand
And my struggle 
Pulls me deeper in
Won't be long now
Let it swallow me
No one will notice 
Let go

Long Distance Call

Every night I say 
Your name and remember when
You would say mine back.
