Blackened Windows

Blackened Windows

Blackened windows,
Hiding from view.
What terrors lie inside?
Of lives torn apart,
By the sickening: crime.
Of a fragile mind: of a fractured few.
All is silent.
Until a scream pierces: the night with a deadening blow.
And our worst nightmare: by the blood and the flow.

Blackened windows; hiding from view.
How far did they go?
How many lives did they gain as their prize?
Smoke screens, and lies was all, their disguise.

Hidden from view,
What should we all do?

The Silent Stealer


The Silent Stealer


I miss you,

Tears fall, my heart lies broken on the kitchen floor
 Why have you gone?

There are no words, but a cold silence
And the darkness of the silent stealer.


I miss you,

It was only yesterday, that we enjoyed a fine sweet wine

 Why have you gone?

There are no words, just the sorrow of death
And the dark shadow of the silent stealer.

I miss you, and my life is now incomplete.
 Now that the silent stealer has gone.

Sun, Sea and Fun!

Sun, Sea and Fun!

Nights of endless pleasure
Under skies of: blue.
Moments to treasure
Enjoying our love: just us two.

Drinking ‘till dawn
Not knowing what to do?
Hours of pleasure
Just me, and you!

Days and night of,
Sun, sea, fun and you!
Happy times to treasure
Under skies of: sapphire blue.
