    In fallow fields we cast seperate long shadows.
    Silhouetted in gold we're as black as night
    and the cold has driven us to sleep within ourselves.

    As my...

    Fragmented Dreams

    It lies with me,
    all my fear,
    in the depths of night
    revealing itself.

    The closer I approached
    the farther we appeared.
    Our lips touched
    and I was alone.

    The Folly of a Fool

    Just an emotional purging, nothing spectacular, making it all the more fool-worthy.


    How did I forget

    Throw your torch!

    Flame-spitten to an ash-wilted pyre
    and watch amongst the phantom hordes,
    a publicly relished rage,
