Let Love

In the forests of my dreams,
Love - she found me.

Muted dread and silent steel,
No matter - she held me.

Let her in, let her out,
Forget her? Oh, I could not.
And so I let the silence speak,
Held my tongue - wise indeed.

In the mirror of my dreams,
Love - I found her.

With steady hands and new belief,
As one - We found me.

Shadows of Dawn

Albatross death,
Shadows and sweat,
Dagger hold still,
O’er my heart if you will.

Willing prey,
Bloody game,
Open wound bleed,
The poison runs deep.

Water's edge,
Stony ledge,
Shattering pain,
Moonlight and rain.

Cut glass sorrow,
Window to tomorrow,
Stained glass dreams,
Rainbows over streams.

Ribbons of truth,
Shred to bits - me and you,
Seashells - white,
Breath of life - soft light.
