The reapersIt was cold, oh so coldThe reapers by MEBwrittings
And my heart turned to stone.
My bare feet felt the grass
And my soul heard them moan.
Oh they came, oh that day
When the sky turned to black
I there laid by the hay
In the barn near the back.
They were black and so vile
That I shivered with fright.
No faced did they have
What a sight! What a sight!
I knew then it was time;
They had come just for me.
I looked back on my crimes;
It was all as should be.
They caressed me with ice
And my soul was then free.
There was no futile fight
Nor intention to flee.
There was pain, oh the pain
How I loved it so dear.
Yes it drove me insane
But no fear, oh no fear.
Oh reapers they are
And come you are to die
So when your time comes
Give your soul; don’t be shy!
-First- (2010)Burning the sky with a handful of matches-First- (2010) by AlyssaStehle
Summoning a shimmering blaze of orange and magenta
Screaming into the wind with my last dying breath
The blackbirds scattered into the sunset
Flying in separate directions, on clumsy wings
Like ashes rising from some great inferno
Gracefully retreating from the heat and the pain
Placing only my gloved fingertips on the chilled window
Touching the familiar landscape at the far horizon
Let’s read the stars like brail
Let’s hear that wonderful story whispered into our half dreaming ears
The one that doesn’t have an ending yet
Drifting gently to the bottom of my grief
If there is nothing but silence
You would bring the sound even to the bottom of this sea
Seeing the moon for the first time in ages
Floating just above the ground
A tangerine slice smiling from behind indigo clouds faraway
Enveloping everything in its memorable shine
I never want to say goodbye to you
Somehow this simple love song is just too painful
-Trembling- (2010)Last night I let the wind come in-Trembling- (2010) by AlyssaStehle
To play my ribs like delicate ivory piano keys
Even now my heart is shivering from the sudden chill
If only I could recall that beautiful melody
I would hum it to you
I quietly wished for the sun to never rise
The royal blue sky speckled with blinking stars
I called out to the moon about to disappear
I called out to you many times it seems
This lonely landscape full of stars, I know it’s yours
Without the sun
The streetlight from years ago split my shadow in two
A silhouette of something that doesn’t exist
The three of us have but one set of footprints
Invisible on the gray colored dead end street
The cracks in my heart deepen every day
But it will never be broken
I’ll run miles and miles from my darkened house
Just to see your elusive smile
From the shadows of sleep into the scarlet sunrise
Fearless, breathless, and trembling am I
Letters clumsily becoming tangible
Describing the thoughts that I think constantly
Dreams that flash acr
