Soared, Into The Wild

  
Where walls, dimly lit through hallways lay in sleep
The lockers lined all shut tight for the night
Drifting alone in a friendless place like home
Echoes of breaths, float in the air, a stagnant roam

It breaks at a sound of a crying dove
Caged and forgotten, lacking a love
The tears of a pain so grand it flows
Drowning the lungs, suffering, it froze

The word, Why, is constantly whispered
Between gulps of finding his composure
Mere inches away, separated by a door
Pressing to hear more

His beautiful tears shed the last of his spirit
Silence came in an instant
Breath holding
Hoping

A shattered door now lay broken next to his body
Stop!
Give life another chance
Wings spread, onyx black and it shined for him

The feathers waved as if a gush of wind came
It caressed the heart of this dying boy
As he lay motionless at the feet of Death himself
His angel raised a sword and followed through

Cut Death to the quick and yelled
This Boy Is Not For You
Into his arms he held this child
And soared into the wild

Lost XXXIX

Heavens Rose, Heavens Kiss
Heavens Peace, Heavens Bliss
Light the path for deaths salvation
Break the ties of earth’s damnation
Held in hand the lifeless head of man
Where a sinner’s life first began
Outcast spirit ventures forward
Leaving behind its shell lost and tortured
Heavens Rose, Heavens Kiss
Heavens Peace, Heavens Bliss
The nothing that exists beyond the knowing
Time will tell if daily prayers beholding
In faith the afterlife be granted
Where love supreme is enchanted
To wait or not to wait in sin
Or take the leap and hope to win
Heavens Rose, Heavens Kiss
Heavens Peace, Heavens Bliss

Lost XXXV

sleep child sleep
rest your weary heart
dreams will reach you
deep within your being
surrounded you are
by the light of dark

sleep child sleep
rest your weary eyes
allow them to see, beyond light
deep within your soul
visions of splendour
free to fly high will you

sleep child sleep
rest your weary bones
release the weight of life
deep within your flesh
rise you will
to float among the moon and stars

sleep child sleep
rest your weary mind
beneath the wings of an angel
deep within your fettered breaths
protected you are
so sleep child sleep
