Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{March 3, 2013}   Day to Dark and Back

Wolf howls
Dawn dies
Darkness is now day

Fireflies glow
All is not predator
Moon becomes noon

Vile shapes
Guilt becomes innocence
Night turns to dusk

Crimson threads
Whistled songs
Sun sends moon to bed


{November 5, 2011}   Brood



{January 30, 2011}   Me And Anti-Me

Slapped awake
Snapped alert
Shaken violently
Thrown to the ground

Who are you?
Why treat me so?
Pain so great
You will kill me soon

Turn and look
Blood blurred vision
No, no, no
It’s me

Two of me
Too many of me
Me and anti-me
Dear God, help me

One dark, one light
One dirty, one clean
One armed, one broken
Both hurting, both dying

{December 26, 2010}   Weightless Eternity

I close my eyes
Moment, forever
All I know is gone
Bleak emptiness

Was there to hear?
Whisper passing
Nothing recognized
Deadly silence

What left to feel
Cold, hard, sharp
Sensations absent
Even dreams

Beyond morning
Deeper night
No pull, no push
Weightless eternity

{December 20, 2010}   To Get There

Draw the carts
Set the wheels
Steady the animals
We travel tonight

Wrap for warmth
Secure for wind
Tether for visibility
We travel tonight

Count the watch
Arm the able
Center the weak
We travel tonight

Hope comes soon
When light breaks
Final end ever nearer
We travel tonight

{December 2, 2010}   Hinder

Woe to the light
Dare shine hinder the dark
Woe to the dark
Dare hinder the light
