old

magic

spells I found

hocus pocus

written in red ink

by foolish minds in need

from dark fancy born at night

dreams gone wrong by wish for power

time guards all sorcery that it owns

your mind alone  will never write the spell

your own illusion brings you back to hell

your spell was written with crooked pen

the devil waits to call you in

the wish made while heart was black

returns, a tenfold smack

forgive your mistake

make one right wish

for your life

to turn

back.

AAAAA

When

Night’s dark

Shadows fall

Lonely hearts call

The land is cold now

Secrets hide in darkness

Shadows crawl with dragon’s tail

They seek to find a place to be

To spread their golden wings in harmony

No harm to those in dragons dreaming sleep…

AAAAA

Colleen is still not back in action, but we will keep her challenges running until she surfaces again!

I

attend

Sunday church

my soul transcend

sins everywhere

the walls run thick with tears

heads bowed in silent prayer

seeking forgiveness given here

candle lit, penance paid, sins vanish

I chase my shadow across the Rubicon

The die is cast, whose favour will it fall

my soul hangs in balance of payment

I track the desert wilderness

I seek the one who can help

to return me from hell

call me from exile

the hunt over

my own guide

I live

now

AAAAA
