Bury It Deeper

Bury it deeper
So it doesn't come back
Last time you failed
Now you're under attack
Bury it deeper
As far as it goes
Though the curtain is veiled
There are evil echoes
Demons don't die
They have patience to hurt
Eye for an eye
Needs more than shovels of dirt

Bury It Deep

Bury it deep
In the dark
Before moonlight
Fear has no place
In the heart
Weary hindsight
The mountain too steep
A valley so stark
The absence of grace
My soul pried apart
Bury it deep
Leave no mark
Of the fierce fight
Demons we face
Can outsmart
Us by midnight

Immersed in the #MadVerse

I've been captivated by #MadVerse prompt writing. These were originally written on 8/30/17 with prompts:
I Can and I Will / kiss in the rain


MadVerse #10

I can
And I will
Survive
This onslaught of adversity
I can't
And I won't
Surrender
To the tide of hatred and vitriol
Rise
And resist
With Love everlasting

MadVerse #11

A kiss in the rain
A smile by the fire
A bed left in ruins
These are my memories
Of you

MadVerse #12

It was a kiss in the rain
Of a deluge of tears
As I endured the pain
Of you saying goodbye

The Crazy Ones

Here's to the dreamers
The artists
And lovers
Here's to the crazy ones
The poets
And writers
Let's make our mark for the better

Iron Words

The Gods
Of poetic destruction
Linger in the twilight
Of poetic creation
Ready to obliterate
The noblest of cobblings
From weary-eyed poets
Ill-suited to defend
Fledgling works of art
That dare to be bolder
Than intended
Or allowed
But if the Words are mighty
They survive
And flourish
Becoming more brilliant
Than imagined
Forged in the furnace
Of a sacred place
To resonate
Boundlessly
