The Long Lost Love

Penelope glides across a railing
As she watches the tumultuous sea.
Cloud masses rise above, pierced as lightning
Cuts across the night’s looming ebony.

As her blackened hair turns, sad eyes appear,
And gaze into the distance wistfully,
For the long lost love who had once been here,
But had sailed these long years restlessly.

She knew not what dragons came upon him,
Or what treacherous siren threatened,
But as she stood at end-of-the world’s brim
The monster’s taunt said she was sure-condemned.

New knights beckoned to the fair maiden within,
Begging her join frolick and debauchery,
But her gaze was fixed upon what had been
and what dragon must have made this quandary.

Sing sweetly, my beloved Penelope,
And wait while dragons fall, and I find thee.

Stoop So Low

It was dawning dusk when the milky way
Spilled out upon the grand mountains that play
The melody of sunset just now passed
And leave naught but ebbing glow for the last.

And as she had watched the sunset back then,
She waited to see what morning could send,
But those who don’t cry under that spilled milk
Are only the ones spun closed in iron silk.

As time passed by she knew the dusk would end,
The night would come, small flame her eyes to lend,
And it would fade to neverending bliss
When one set still for the all-in Maker’s kiss.

The Prayer of Night

Lord of the Mighty farflung name
Blame in the hate flame burning eyes,
Glass in the shattering lips of shame
Quiet in the lovely maiden’s sighs.

Come in the mighty dusk of night
Shatter in the storms worldrending,
Shake, Burn in th’night’s dawning day
Crest the hill of dark unending.

Forbid the word of he whose curse
Has wrought in terror blood his sign
Upon the darkened hearts that burst
In loveliest holies, hear their cry.

Dark Backed old man turn light the blinds
And come to face the sinners gaze
To break th’accursed father of lies
And turn to You, the one who saves.

And in the dark when cries now start
Hush the violent sinners sin
Though we may scream remain apart
Come to our lives, and enter in.

Amen
