Blood for my Muses: Poetry
Libraries: Poetry and Song Lyrics
Published on / 6 Chapter(s) / 0 Review(s)
Words offered in place of blood to my gods. Many of these tie in directly to my forthcoming series, Talystasia: A Fairy-Tale for Grown-Ups (Volume I). Chapter I in that series is posted here: http://www.paperdemon.com/writing/view/5062 .
Chapter 1, Untitled I
Smashed beneath the weight of my grief.
A flickering flame,
I have to keep it safe
But I won't whisper your name,
Not when I should shout it.
But even in this fumbling silence
Sometimes I catch the scent of you
Burning in my veins
Souls, you say, are their own coordinates.
You are the binary star I navigate by,
Even when I'm blind in the dark,
So the when doesn't matter
Or the where or the how,
Because I know I'm coming home
The long way around.
(With a nod to Doctor Who)
