'Chantress, she who within the magic of the ivory can act as a siren to the
angels.
You hold within your very eyes an eclipse and with you also comes a sun,
whose arcane light can destroy all in it's path.'
'It is not really so I have told myself, but to a man whose own reflection is
threatening, such rational words fall forever on deaf ears. And yes, you hold
Eden and your golden aura that I have held in my hands will take me to other
worlds where the fruits of Eden are life itself.' And as love itself seeks our
nectar, to read your next chapter is all I have wished for, but a blank page
will enlighten no man.back to top
And The Waters Were Like Wine
'But the soul becomes fond' she said, as another day lay down and died. 'Is it
not time' I said, to abandon these chains that bind us and gather together the
wood to fuel our fire?'. 'Fear not' she said 'For as love itself seeks our
nectar, so too will time grant you a reprieve'. Words that washed over me as the
waves lapped against me and the waters of time wished to envelope me and kiss my
very soul.back to top
Longing For Edens Rain (and winters end)
Beneath the very skies that I had, for so long, sought in vain. An arcane sun
hid behind clouds who were to be my salvation. 'Nectar of the gods; you once
said, now it was their tears I craved, to wash me of this all enveloping and
soul destroying aura. 'And Love Itself Seeks Our Nectar?' I asked. 'Only you can
answer that' he said. 'Why then do I feel as though I am standing before the
court and telling them I have kissed Eternity. When clearly by my withered face,
I have not?'. Still I stand desolate, the path of tears distinguished on my face
and it has not rained in so long. Does this winter have an end?
'It is not really so I have told myself, but to a man whose own reflection is

nectar, to read your next chapter is all I have wished for, but a blank page

We Stood With Time
And love itself sought our nectar, and time itself stood still...no man before
had tasted the fruits of such immortality and when your hands touched my face
time itself kissed my soul. And our souls fell, as angels had wings, we had
grace below us. We became no man, no love would escape our sun and where once an
arcane cage gripped me, my soul, now I could swim free in the oceans of time.

I too have embraced a new day as a new life only to find that complacency can
lead to life creeping behind and closing my eyes to a world that wished to
embrace me and kiss my very soul.back to top
I Was Alive Then...
In the breast of the sky, I saw them gathered in flight, casting down their
enveloping aura, as leaves would fall, it touched my every pore. The kindest
words of echonian tongue no longer fell on deaf ears and I could feel their joy
as it carried me into the clouds. And for six days and six nights, I was as they
were...I too spoke in echonian tongue and sang the songs of Byzantium. As Midas
had with touch, I was granted with a vision, as a gold world embraced me and
kissed my soul. I was alive then.back to top
Your Name
Though I've called your name a thousand times, my words are blown back into my
face. The wind makes my skin harder still. The clouds race by over-head and I
fight to remain standing, the signs of endless journeys shows in my weakened
stance. I wish for the ground to open. I have been around the world and back, I
have re-lived every memory, re-dreamt every dream and felt every touch (again).
Still the clouds will race, the wind will cut and soon I will fall. The dust
will form a mound that shall be my tomb, never to be whetted by the tears of
mourning, because I was lost long ago in a colder world and lost you forever.
I believe that each man craves the soul rejuvenation that, for centuries,
authors and poets of the world have immortalised through the written and spoken
word. I believe that each man wishes to harness the power of the burning sun and
rejuvenate the soul that, for many of us, lies dead. I too have traveled these
paths and found that most lead to a bare world.back to top
Canto I (the search)
Many seasons have passed since first my search began, with each night came a
quest.... to escape from a world where I could find no peace, only despair. Each
night brought a sense of hope and each day, despair. Some nights I would catch a
glimpse that would soon disappear among a myriad of thoughts and images, but
still I would wade through and seek what I knew was waiting to welcome me.....
Elysium to Greece, Byzantium to Yates. Few brief glimpses had strenghtened my
desire and the lust for my own paradise, gave strenght to my withering soul.back to top
Canto II (arrival, and submergence)
I stood and watched, but I could not believe, I was new to this beauty...why had
I been before?. The metallic glowing blue, provoked memories long dormant and
the deep red clouds flowed with the elegance of a queen. I was so far, yet the
ambiance was so strong and I could feel my soul trying...... Trying to break
free from this restricting mortal vest. Soon my spirit flies through the night
sky, unrestricted...free, like sand flowing through my fingers. Here I sense
real peace, sinking into the clouds, I can forget the old world and despair no
more. Sunrise brought a new day and I was drenched in my sun, it's warmth
rejuvenated my once withered soul. Here I sense real peace, is this my paradise.back to top
Sundrenched (beneath the very skies we sought)
A season died, no tears were shed, my eyes turned gold, there was fire in the
sky. We were sundrenched. My world turned green and breathed as a new-born, my
eyes turned gold there was fire in the sky. We were sundreched.back to top
Promised (so many years have passed)
In a pool of tears, that are my own, I am sitting still crying. So many years
and still no sign, so many years I am waiting. You promised me you would wait
for me, but now as the sun sets once more, I am thinking that you have forgotten me.back to top
