Eyes Of Liquid Fire

With eyes of liquid fire
Burning in the stillness of the night,
You seal a single moment
From the chaos of eternity;
The silver-glinting sky hangs
Heavy with an icy permanence,
And sparks of darker magic
Linger in the air outside of time;
The world of your enchantment
Ripples with the trembling of my heart,
Reverberating in the
Silence. Wordlessly, you call to me
With eyes of liquid fire.


Paler Moon

Wounded, weary and weak.
A paler moon, a darker night.
Lonely, lost and longing.
Crying for the end.
