red blanket

thank you for the red blanket

you gave me

on that day of Thanksgiving

for warmth

against the cold dark forces

embracing me

seducing me

freezing my blood

with the glacier

and endless crevasse

of unholy fear

it was the only warmth

i received

as you told me to get out

my death

thank you for my death

if i must go

let it be by your hand

and as our eyes touch

to search for truth

i will enter oblivion, elegantly

in a river of blood


perfect rose

lost words
flushed by the blood
trickle of sacrifice

thoughts grow
a thicket of briers
biting shy flesh

with every temptation
to embrace the rapture
of a perfect rose


blood words

through this jagged
unnatural wound
I find blood words

to paint
the sound
of pain


blood and soul

i offer blood

feed on me

i offer soul

please feed on me

spiritual vampire

of essence and heart


shot a man

shot a man,

watched him die,

his spirit married my cause,

and i couldn’t remember

which war i was fighting –

he had no uniform,

wore no shoes.

lost children built sandcastles

in his blood.


dark red

slept a tired sleep
dreamt dark red
the colour of
yearning
depletion
outpouring
blood
awoke surrounded –
the womb of pitch
embraced layers of razor silks
needing nothing but more sleep
i cut myself
to stop the pain
