Awaken the distinctive minds,
time to strum;
their coffins' symphony.

Verses Of Light

Ethereal cadence,
the one his might, drifting to,
tyrannically pleasurable,

and stranger, the heart,
was not, in this vagueness,
bursting verses unto light.

One Sweet Morn

woes melt on
cheerful meadows,
to bloom,
spirits waft
blood born jasmine,
tryst witnessed
by darling breeze,
