I had a pet fish once We didn’t really speak I kept him in a fish bowl Feed him twice a week I used to watch him swimming I’m sure he watched me too I used to watch him watch me There was nothing else to do Every time I approached him He’d swim up to the top I used to really enjoy that too bad it had to stop You see although we were friends Like I said we didn’t speak It really was all my fault I forgot to feed him for a week When I finally went to see him He wasn’t looking very good Sort of sat there floating Just like a piece of wood I knew I had to say goodbye But I didn’t really rush Because as you can probably guess I said it with a flush


A Sonata



Elysian Fields

Anguish consumes me, swallows my soul Waves crashing taking their toll The winds are blowing the horizon lost Wrapped in torment now the cost The ferryman waits to receive this day Stands in silence awaits his pay Through hells water he’ll ferry me My soul now captive, never free Tears once wet, now are dried Wailing souls judged and tried Styx and Lethe we’ve sailed past There waters black where souls were cast Nerves are flailed I await the dawn We sail on now all hope is gone My journey now cast in stone In the prow I stand alone The river Cocytus waters flow Sounds of wailing grow and grow Lost souls now search for life Look to me to relieve their strife My journey done my future torn Beleth waits his legions sworn Valac’s dragon near brings dread To the fallen scourge devoid and dead I call to Gabriel to come take my hand And free me from this tortured land Areal responds and shakes his head Leaves me burning in lands of dead Taken now to Hades halls Souls in pain hung on walls Jury stands to judge remorse To keep me here their stated course Tried and convicted I stand and wait Gadreel will sentence me my fate Cast down now in eternal fray I kneel clasp hands and quietly pray Blinding light now fills my mind Uriel come my hands unbinds Save my soul I cry with, zeal Uriel cries and calls Azrael Damned in dark now damned in light Taken from loves true sight Sent know to Styxs dark shore There to wait for a lifetime more Never now my soul will yield And walk upon Elysian Field

Hearts Content

I stand alone on Hearts Content My spirit broken my soul now spent A storm is coming and bearing down It sought me out and now I’m found It moves of will, where I go If it will pass me, I cannot know The winds scream, howling a name I reel and twist hammered by rain My soul is crushed, under weight I push, it holds, it won’t abate I should let it win tear me asunder Push my soul into darkness under The anguish holds me as I look to the sea The storm rips as I turn to flee Where to hide this anguished night When will this beast be gone from sight For it is said that all storms pass I pray and hope this is the last She’s upon me now I feel her grip I lose myself my soul will slip In the eye I have lost the shore I have given myself and pray no more Rules that held me down and still Have cleaved my soul taken my will I look to set the balance straight Battered and hidden it must not wait Still I give and shall for always stay True to the storm every day I have bared myself to the storms will The truth stays hidden and now lays still My soul revealed I stand on height Will I give in and fall this night I have pledged to live through this storm and shall hold dear my oath now sworn And someday soon the storm may see not what was then but what could be Someday maybe the storm will pass I am as I have been and so will last The winds may calm and my soul will be Upon the edge and cast to sea I step out now my soul is spent And stand no longer on Hearts Content

The Battle of Elysians Field

I am branded Furcas, a purveyor of death Angels above concede my breadth Words lose worth when spoken many Who’s left to listen if there be any Heed my sins for they cast me down Now dark legions my fidelity found I’ve slaughtered and defaced many a man Left leas of blood now none command I’ve destroyed souls from children lost Taken lives and paid no cost I stand here now to reveal the story Of a war in heaven in all its glory There was a night that saw Angels cry Hades came they knew not why Angel warriors by Michael’s side Lesser Angels in horror cried Clouds rose menacing in heavens sky Darkness falls as Angels die Lands once shone in all Gods glory Filled with armies awaiting quarry Smoke now conceals the fields once bright Celestial soldiers stand ready to fight The legions awaited trumpets to hear Sworn to God their faith held dear Our allegiance to God taken back Fallen Angels our souls are black Bathin’s gallop into the night Began the war to set things right Angels stood and held their ground And legions fought as trumpets sound Lines were drawn, dark legions held Nameless Angels now soon fell Baal standing high sends commands His dark forces to make a stand God now heeds Lucifer’s demand Calls the seven to take a stand Michael stands and heralds all Gabriel and Raphel heed his call Uriel and Zerachiel now appear Remiel and Raguel now are near Seven Archangels stand in light Together now defend the night Lucifier summoned his demon horde To arise and fight against the Lord Beelzebub comes to seduce with pride Leviathin’s heresy now is cried Asmodeus and Berith come this night Astroth and Verrine prepare to fight Battalions mass under Archangels guise Force the battle and fight the lies Raphel stands to face the horde Unsheathes his lethal holy sword Strikes down Astroth with a mighty blow Stands victorious swathed in a glow Leviathin strikes Uriel with force Ureil’s demise may alter the course Uriel now broken and lost his sight Must forsake the field, leave the fight Zerachiel draws a mighty bow Takes aim and lets one go Staying true the arrow strikes Verrine’s life it now does take Asmodeus and Remiel now do fall Raphel too can’t heed the call Angels and demons fall this night Twelve now total removed from fight Lucifer stands dark and cold Michael answers an Angel bold Two now meet on heavens fields From the dawn of time fates were sealed Lucifers holds with a defiant stance Michael’s sword begins its dance Two angels under crimson skies The intent of two that one will die Noise rang throughout the night Angels fought into the light Mornings rises both still stand Balance reached throughout the land A blinding light outshines the day Two angels gone now sent away Lucifer damned from Gods’ grace Michael rises and resumes his place Heed my words and pray thee tell Thy children of war, the war from hell For Satan’s hordes in darkness wait We have no love we live to hate

The Horsemen’s Last Ride

Darkness covers the horsemen four Hunt by night bring blood and gore Riding horses forged of steel Souls now stone they do not feel Searching grounds not their own Horsemen hunt through sand and stone Magic used guides their way Leading horsemen to weary prey Closer now the prey does come Soon their souls to be undone Rumblings rise through the night Thunder crashed flashing light Horses carry prey on high Fight and scream before they die Weapons drawn the horsemen stand Tearing souls from a foreign land Screams that rose fall away Flashes blind, nights now day Quiet comes the cost unknown The horsemen split their souls alone Fate, Destiny, Pestilence and War One will stand where none before Now alone he sees the sight Horsemen’s carnage of the night Spiritless eyes now look upon Souls once there now are gone Standing stooped now bent and torn War stands still tired and worn Fate now wanders lost and blind Searching for what he now can’t find Pestilence now gone from our view Destiny’s heart, pain passed right through The horsemen have wrought their mighty will Blood and life their job to spill Time is past War’s now gone home Standing lost and on his own An Angel sent to help will stand To give his soul a guiding hand Gone and forgotten his soul is lost The horseman War now pays the cost A Specter now he bows his head And thinks of souls long since dead The Angels soul is here no more Darkness shrouds the horseman War Time now done he bows his head Breathe now children the Horseman’s dead

Black Storm

She rose in height surrounding me Shattered waves and broken sea Hid things from my watchful sight Hit hard and cold turned day to night

Tossed and turned I lost my way Live I would within that day Battered bruised and broken back Lost confused swells so black

Words of fury rose in height Day so turbulent turned to night Screams of winds looked for me Wraith and fury set so free

Dark as pitch the sea does choke Waves lunge over sides of oak She rises throws me aside as waste Salt frozen bitter mouths taste

Turn for home now lost to sight Life on balance through this night Waves alive now smell the fear Reapers time draws quite near

The fight for life leaves me hollow Death and mourning I feel will follow She rises now in her pride and breadth Wants to hold me in her depth

Cold and silent I scream no sound My voice is gone and can’t be found Moving forward I fight it back Through the day of night now so black

Push and struggle to see the shore Tired and beaten I want no more Waves subside from mothers hand Winds die down close to land

I look towards to passing storm My body beaten tired and worn I lose myself no words are spoke My body slides over sides of oak

Dragon Dreams

I have dreamed of life in a magic way Gone to places in the light of day Stood on shores in a far off land Walked with Queens hand in hand

I’ve climbed mountains that touched the sky Watched as centaurs marched on by Battled demons with dark dead eyes Talked to trolls who told great lies

I’ve flown in worlds far away And conquered kingdoms in just one day Walked with a wizard under a foreign sky Lived with Elves as time went by

Ran with Dwarves underground Hide treasures that couldn’t be found Chased a Sprite through wood so green Laughed with Wisps although not seen

I’ve danced with fairies in the pale moonlight Spoke to witches in the dark of night Rode a unicorn through crashing waves Spoke with specters at their graves

Taught a Giant to speak to me Chased a Griffon up a tree But all that I’ve seen and done Nothing can compare to one

Flew on a dragon, scales bright red Massive wings, a broad smooth head Talons like obsidian glisten bright Eyes that saw like day in night

We flew through together like hand in hand Explored the mountains seas and land Saved a princess from her keep Teased and played and scared some sheep

Fought together in times of war Protect souls by the score Stayed together through thick and thin Together we knew we’d always win

We flew together since I was young Made up songs to be sung We’ve play hide and seek in fields of gold Now we don’t we’ve grown quite old

We’ll fly on together into the sun When it’s right and our time is done Until then we will fly and ascend My dragon and I …. my only friend

The Last Waltz

As fluid as mist she dances across my floor Fingers delicate moving in unhurried motion She has waited and time is now hers Grace and beauty I am now witness She moves without motion, floating on air Coming to me, an angel of dark and light

We dance

Eyes penetrating I am left without breath I am consumed by this illusory phantom A heart beat reverberates heard by none She draws closer and I am laid bared No voice have I as she passes ghost hands my soul She smiles as I am given unto her

We dance

Spiritual sounds heard within my mind Assemble as a symphony lacking a score Her eyes shine as I twist in desolation I am with her I am alone I am all and nothing All I have given is now called to be judged She is judge jury and executioner

We dance

Her lips touch my ear with a whisper lost She folds me unto her and the silence screams Surroundings fade lost in grey, she smiles, the score now written The symphony begins as I lay in her arms She dances, fluid and seamless embracing my soul My path she will choose when her judgement is complete

We dance

The Last Waltz

The Horseman War

Standing alone on a forgotten shore The Horseman War feels no more Too much pain wrought on many Forgiveness gone if there be any What care he for those once there Admit his need he would not dare Attention given, words once heeded His soul now stoic none are needed Pestilence once held called a friend Now forgotten his time did end Destiny now lost from others sight Things once held destroyed in night Fate now lost in the eternal abyss War heeds none, none be missed All the wraiths once firm by side All now gone, all have died In solitude now the Horseman War Standing alone on a forgotten shore

Harth the Troll

This is the story of Harth the troll It’s better spoken in the ways of old For it’s a story of his waning heart And the forest he could not part You see he was a quiet troll He loved big hugs, had a gentle soul He used to spend many a day Watching a fairy in her joyful play He met her on a morning bright She smiled at him his heart did light Since that day she’s been in his heart He loves that fairy and dares not part Sadly though it was not to be A trolls are mean and quite ugly When they met they felt the same But the trolls’ behavior was to blame At first they’d talk, laugh and play There together as one each day The fairy loved to feel and talk The ugly troll would growl and balk She tried so hard to help him change But a troll is dark and very strange Time went by and she grew quite weary His mood was foul and awfully dreary She wanted only to live in peace He didn’t seem to care the least She waited long and hoped he’d come To be with her, play in the sun And then on a fatefully day She no longer came to play Harth knew he was not nice Knew sometimes his soul was ice He never told her how he felt Never told her his ice she’d melt He never told her of his love He knew was sent from above He never talked of his fear Of losing one he loved so dear So many things never told He’d love till he was old All the things he should have said Didn’t come from a soul now dead Harth the troll now sits alone With a broken heart a soul of stone Although he had changed his heart It took too long for him to part So all of you who read this story Don’t forget he’s alone and sorry Brought about by his own fate For making the lovely fairy wait If the truth you refuse to see Once she’s gone alone you’ll be Harth the troll has slipped from life Never to have her as his wife Although he prays she’ll forgive Alone he knows he’ll always live

Dragons Flight

Red wings spread across the sky On invisible winds we do now fly Rising in the morning breeze Our flight of fancy done with ease Floating here we feel the sun Our morning flight has just begun

Lands that passes far below Holds no concern we do not go We travel on our unseen line Head through hardship, life and time How long our flight will finally last We cannot know until it’s passed

We see below a broken man Can’t feel it now but know we can From this height we can only stare To save ourselves we cannot care These winds keep us on our flight Our eyes now wait the solace night

Over oceans we do now soar Sent to serve for half a score Banners now we wear with pride Our flight now will take a side Scorching now the earth below Dragons’ fire consumes our soul

We turn now from this chosen line Look for peace we hope to find Soaring now we coast through clouds Our sight and thoughts in fog now shroud Coasting now we seek new hope Seeking help for life to cope

Light from above assaults our eyes Shred the clouds and clear the skies Descending now a Seraph appears Fills our void our souls now hear Seized now by this heavenly sight Fear now holds this precarious flight

The battle now within our soul Forgiveness not to be foretold In panic now of what we’ve sought Our flight we know is worth naught Turning now from angels sent Fear of triumph our flight now spent

Winds now calm clouds fill the sky Onward now we so do fly Spiraling down we slowly fall For the Angel we now do call Seeking pardon from time gone past We offer what we know will last

Wings now hold a precarious flight Higher now for the coming night My dragon and I hope for the best To find a place we both can rest Holding hope we stay our place Waiting for the Angels grace

Springs Dance

The troll stomped his feet, it was another gloomy day He wished he could send those dark clouds away February skies were never that nice They threatened with rain, with snow and with ice He wondered what to do to make it more fun Bring back the spirit that he got in the sun He tried signing songs but his voice shook the ground Scared all the creatures who lived close around He dressed in bright colours that would sparkled in light But in the grey of the clouds it looked more like night He tried painting flowers but the day was too glum Nothing he did really felt like much fun What could a troll do to chase away the blues He tried tap dancing in his beautiful suede shoes Nothing he tried seemed to help him at all He had no one to talk too no one to call He decide to go out and walk through the town To see if someone could help, someone he found He walked to the ocean to see who was there When he spotted a maiden with golden brown hair She was sitting by the shore with a journal in hand She was the prettiest maiden he had seen in this land He looked at her face and she didn’t seem so happy How could she be when the weathers so crappy The troll knew right then he just had to try To help make this maiden see the sun in the sky As she looked out the troll suddenly appeared He was dressed like a clown he looked really weird She was stunned by this troll he came from nowhere He was dressed like a clown with flaming red hair His nose it was round just like a ball His pants held by strings, she thought they might fall She watched as this troll started to dance He moved like a log with baggy blue pants He wasn’t very graceful as he moved all about He stumbled and tripped and his shirt it flew out She shouted “Dear Troll tell me why is it you dance” “With your red flaming hair and baggy blue pants” He said “I’m trying so hard to drive out the grey” “I wanted so much to see you smile on this day” She couldn’t help but smile how could she not A dancing blue troll who would have thought He then sat by her side and held her small hand She was the prettiest maiden, in all of the land “Take heart my little one” he said with a wink “Spring it is coming much sooner than you think” “The sun will soon shine and brighten the way” “Taking away the dull February day” He took her hand and asked her to walk So they strolled down the beach and giggled and talked As they walked away into the day that was grey They skipped and sang and brightened the day It is said that in February when it’s just about spring If you listen really closely you’ll hear the two sing They share it together, the grey of the day They sing and they giggle and chase it away So remember this story whenever you’re down About the lovely fair maiden and dancing troll clown

The Troll

Well now my dear he said with a wink I’m not what you see and not what you think Before you, you see what might be a bird But that’s the silliest thing that I’ve ever heard I don’t have a beak or a bright fancy tail I’m certainly not a budgie or cute little quail I’m not a fairy with buzzing bright wings Nor a jester who dances and sings I’m just a troll with baggy blue pants You must remember the time that we danced I’m here today to ask you once more Can we hold hands and dance on the shore We could watch the waves as they break The day could be ours, ours to take I’ve looked to the sky and it’s bright and it’s blue It made me think of a smile, a smile that’s you And so my fair maiden before you I stand Ready to dance and explore life in hand

He shook his head and came back to the day His dreams always seemed to take him away He couldn’t tell her, there were no words Troll weren’t seen, trolls weren’t heard He stood in the shadows hidden from sight The maiden he loved, the beauty so right He dreamed his dreams they made him feel He wished her love could again be real He dreamed his dreams they’re all he had But when he awoke it made him sad In his dreams he was a handsome young man She looked upon him and smile and held his hand They danced and they swirled it was a beautiful sight The troll and the maiden on that moon lit night They laughed and giggled as they twirled in dance They dared and they loved they lived the chance So he cuddled and pulled the covers over his head And lived in his dream throughout the night in his bed

The Monolith

The silence is deafening I hear the emptiness it echo’s the hollow spot within me reverberates as I stand upon the giant A monolith rising from the depths Perched on its pinnacle I stand Gazing out I stare upon all that is, all that was Time lost beyond the curve of the earth I stand “Father” my voice lost to the winds “Father heed my cry” Nothing …. just gusts born upon the waters below “FATHER” I fall to my knees, “father I have been abandoned” Why? The earth breaths I stand on a bastion towering from the seas I step out not a single word I speak I fly
