    I wrote this for my mother, who decided to convert to Catholisism as an adult and to celebrate her spiritual journey.



    She walks the dawn hiway
    Strikes the still stone
    Treads the dewed grass
    This morning alone

    She passes the pond
    Where the tall trees glide
    On the brittle still surface
    Night's mists yet abide

    In its' reflection
    She sees the first day
    Of the rest of her life
    And lives it that way.

    Where the suns is just rising
    Where the day is brand new
    I see the dawn walker
    I see it is you.

    Ok, one more I wrote for my mom:

    When Spring was with us, soft and sweet
    You held me to your breast
    Comforted and scolded me
    You dreamed for me the best.

    And summer came with days filled fulll
    Of things to me so new
    You watched me smiling lovingly,
    And yet you always knew

    That someday near the season's end
    Would Autumn's face be shown
    And I, your freckled daughter,
    Would full adult be grown.

    Gone the laughing, winking child
    Who tightly held your hand
    Gone the sunburned sister
    Playing in the sand

    But Mother, may you never think
    My love for you gone too.
    For there will always grow great love,
    From me, your child, to you.

    Bottom of the Bottle


    I can't see
    I can't breath
    My body is numb
    My senses dulled
    I'm at the bottom of the bottle
    There is no where else to go
    This world is to harsh
    All I want is peace
    Chaos is empty
    Peace has no vacancy
    I'm lonley
    I'm tired
    It's raining on me
    And I'm at the bottom of the bottle

    I've some about unrequited love (when I was younger, I tended to unravel some of those feelings to poetry) and optimism... Feel free to critique if you feel so.

    The Final goodbye

    I stand here on a bridge
    Cold wind blows right through me
    I hope it will numb my heart
    So I won’t feel the pain
    For the thing that I’m going to do.
    I look down from the bridge
    Water looks so gloomy and deep
    I bet it’s freezing cold.

    I have a picture.
    A picture of you.
    It brings so many sweet memories
    Back to me
    But I know now it’s time
    To let it all go.
    So I kiss the picture
    Very last time
    Gently as it could fade away
    When my lips touch it.

    “I’m sorry hun”
    I whisper in wind
    “I would have loved to carry on
    But I know there will never be
    You and me.
    So I know now it’s time to give it up
    I hope the life will treat you well
    And somebody will make you happy”.

    I lift my hand
    And throw the picture down from the bridge.
    I watch how wind pulls it in air
    Till it falls down
    To gloomy water
    And I stay watching
    How black waves
    Wash it finally away.

    I know some tears
    Go down my face
    But I don’t even feel
    When them drop to same water
    Which just washed my heart away.
    “I’m so sorry”
    I try to say
    But wind takes my words away.
    “I’m so sorry
    But I have to carry on
    With my life
    Without you”.

    I turn around
    And wrap my mantle
    Tighter around me.
    While walking away
    I know
    I will carry the ghost of your picture
    In my heart forever
    But I couldn’t just carry you
    Anymore.

    Life must go on.


    Road of memories

    Flowers in the field
    Sunshine coming down
    Ladybirds on bushes around the road
    All that reminds of you.

    I reach a spring
    Watch down
    And see your face on water
    That hot, shiny road is full of memories
    All about you.

    In my dreams
    You once walked that road with me
    I picked a flower and gave it to you
    We sat around the spring
    And let the sun warm our faces.

    But you crushed all that one day
    Let me know it’ll never be true
    So who’d wipe that road clean
    Blow shattered dreams away
    Wash you out of it?

    I know
    The road will once be covered with snowflakes
    But, you see, the problem is
    That the snowflakes falling on the road
    Have your face
    Printed on their side.


    Dark room

    I watch out of my window
    And see you walking there
    It makes my heart fly so high
    But I know I have no chance
    There will never be you and me
    Like you once told me.

    You turn and look straight at me
    I feel how my heart starts to cry
    And turn away from the window
    So you can’t see tears
    Going down my face.

    I sit down and see
    How shadows of this long evening
    Capture that room around me
    And the heart inside my chest.

    I listen a clock ticking minutes away
    And imagine you continuing your way
    Somewhere outside of that dark room.


    Hate for love

    I don’t need you
    I hate you
    So stay away from my life
    I love myself and know I’m great person
    I can do it myself
    Very well.

    You don’t know what you’ll lose
    With me.
    But it isn’t my problem
    Since I straighten my backbone
    And walk away.
    So just hope
    That you won’t need me some day
    Because I won’t be there then.

    I’m alive
    And proud of it.


    Worryless

    No one can promise your life will be easy
    But there’s no reason to be worried
    You’re doing great
    And tomorrow will hold you


    As far as
    You can take a breath
    And feel wind on your face
    You will be fine

    No one can know what will happen
    Tomorrow
    Or within few ten years
    But there’s no reason to be worried
    Since tomorrow will always hold you.


    Carry on

    Maybe the sun doesn’t shine every day
    Maybe you fall and find hard
    To get back on your feet again
    Maybe you fail
    And need to carry it with you
    For years

    Or the rest of your life.

    But remember,
    Without rain
    You can’t feel the sun
    Without falling sometimes
    You can’t know
    The joy of going ahead
    And standing on your own feet

    And
    You can carry something
    Very valuable
    With the mistake you did.

    Enjoy :) I've been published, both for my short stories and poetry in several different publications across Canada.

    The Deep and Timeless Sea

    She has a heart, of cracked
    And bleeding sapphire, the color
    Of the sea, with the
    Silver moon fading in shrouds
    Of blackness wrapping it all in their
    Embrace


    Blue lips, icy to the senses
    Beautiful to the hear.
    She lays alone and they tremble,
    Like a child about to cry.
    Sleepless - safety, she can find
    None


    She let go of the sunrise
    To never see it again, she told me,
    Is but a splint to my breaks but
    No one, nothing, will heal me.
    Or can try. Her voice makes the night
    Silent.


    To burn away what love you had given her,
    Innocence should not be tempered
    With - but here you have done it.
    Held the fine and fragile hand
    Only to cast it away to the cold
    Waters


    She keeps her hair about her shoulders
    And holds her heard in her palm,
    Begging to the night to mend it.
    Hush, she says, the day will come.
    It has to come….
    It just has to.


    No. No is all she has known.
    Icy water is all she feels,
    Her skin pale and her eyes wet,
    The blade in that fragile had
    Shimmers like the ice she can feel,
    Painful.


    Too easy it seems. Too easy to draw blood
    When her skin, she cannot feel it.
    Oh, how the water stings her skin
    Numbing the pain. This time,
    She knew it was infinite and just
    Too easy.


    Icy breath will pass her lips nevermore.
    The heart will not bleed forevermore.
    The sun cannot see her beauty evermore.
    Pain will not haunt her anymore.
    Peace, it seems was too easy to find
    In the deep and timeless sea.

    Fallen Glass

    Falling glass
    Laying broken on the floor
    Unwilling to let air pass your heavenly lips
    Dreams of you take wing
    Soaring in my sad, sad mind
    And yet, you’d rather lie,
    Like fallen glass.


    Falling glass
    Is how my voice must sound,
    As I call your name out to the sea
    Relentless are my thoughts of you
    And undying is my hate for myself
    I know my words have cut you
    Like fallen glass

     
    Falling glass
    Shards and edges sharp as blades
    Grip my heart, holding it tight
    Claimed by the sea are my tears
    So you never have to see them
    As I saw you, laying there
    Like fallen glass


    Falling glass
    Its tortured beauty is your own
    Never will I feel your arms
    Never will I be able to unmake the past
    Never will I expect you to forgive me
    Because I left you laying there
    Like fallen glass

    You Told Me

    You told me you loved me
    To get in my head
    You told me you want me
    To get me in bed
    You told me forever
    To soothe my doubt
    You told me your sorry
    So I wouldnt shout
    You told me you'll always
    So I wouldnt fear
    You told me everything
    So I wouldnt hear
    The lies you were whispering
    In my ear.


    You Lied

    You've left me empty
    Deserted
    Lost.
    I have no tears to cry
    Bone
    Dry.
    My heart is broken
    Shattered
    Torn.
    You said forever
    Allways
    Infinity.
    You lied
    Lied
    Lied.

    That was amazing, Spyder.

    Here's one of mine:

    Master of Myth

    Midnight hair, so sleek and fair
    With eyes so baleful and raw.
    A lordly countenance does he bear,
    Graced with a vindictive, grinning maw.
    Bringer of omens both evil and benign
    True sovereign of legend is he.
    A foreboding sight in Western lore
    Yet in ancient Egypt, a deity.

    He was the most silent of sufferers
    For when the Plague began
    It took naught to invoke the wrath
    Of a superstitious clan.
    Amid the carnage of the Black Death
    Rose one accordant cry:
    “Kill them, hang them, burn them all,
    The witches all must die!”

    At the strike of the witching hour
    Into a boiling cauldron he was thrown
    By a heartless voodoo conjurer
    To procure his coveted magic bone.

    Celtic myth is his domain,
    Haunted by the spectral cait sith
    And the mountains of Dublin menaced
    By the terror of Killakee.

    Nightfall is his sanctum,
    For in darkness he is content.
    Long has he remained the core
    Of many a storyteller’s lament.

    He is a living silhouette,
    An emblem of All Hallows Eve.
    Should he ever cross your path,
    You are fortunate indeed.
    If at night, you glance outside
    And discern two eyes of gold,
    The Master of Myth has chosen you
    And your luck shall increase tenfold.

    I read a quote the other day, and it ended was something along the lines of, "Thou shall fly without wings and conquer without any sword."

    So, at 2 in the morning, I jotted this down.

    My Wings, My Sword.

    My wings are covered in copper hairs,
    My sword in a chestnut flame.

    My wings are never weathered or dull,
    My sword faces all terrain.

    My wings need not leave ground to catch air,
    My sword rarely leaves its scabbard.

    My wings are always steady and fair,
    My sword never withdraws from hazard.

    My wings fly to their own accord,
    My sword is never to be off guard.

    My wings have forever soared,
    My sword has always been a regard.

    My wings have nothing to prove,
    My sword never utters a lie.

    My wings hum beats of rhythmical hooves,
    My sword echoes the whinny of pride.

    -Tay Runyon

    I say it's a work-in-progress, but I doubt I'll work on it anymore.
