Snowfall – 12/27/15

ce07c80606df9c970aa051ac33fbf4e7

Here in the darkened midnight
Falling snow
Echoes
Upon the still fragile edges of blackened light
and tarnished shadow
Time stills
and like sands through hour glasses
The flakes rush down from riotous clouds
And make for twinkling ghosts
That haunt the bleak trees
And cover all the earth
With the heavy gravity
Of nature’s final…
Gasping…
Struggling…
Death.

TARDIS

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I promised the doctor that I will not weep.
If I should die somewhere between time and space,
Let there be another companion to take my place!
For that mad man should never be alone,
Always spreading hope in the sound of that blue box’s wheezing drone.
Never cruel or cowardly,
We all promise proudly.
Never give up, never give in,
Even at the darkest parts we’ll always grin.
Whether facing Davros Dalek or Cybermen,
The doctor will triumph no matter where or when.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I promised the doctor I will not weep.
If I should die somewhere between time and space,
Let there be another companion to take my place!

Beggar’s Hands

Forgive me if I beg of you the gift of your soul
With beggar man’s hands that are rank and shaking
Please do not look upon my weaknesses
For they are ugly and unclean
Do not lay upon me your love
For I am a selfish creature
and will consume until my gluttonous thirst is quenched
You are too good to give me all
As I will devour you undaunted by sin or conscience
I will have everything and make no apologies
For this, I now see why you should purge
And leave me abandoned and waiting
But if I turn to you,
beggar’s hands open, my soul longing
Would your own soul answer mine?
