Dull Colour

Poem By Leon Moon

A state which is masked by a costume
And a mind impressed by shadows,
Though the weeping heat of mothers eyes
Is known to it, all is masked by a man who speaks less
And grumbles verses to you in a dry smile
For he spares rain from the cloud above.
I may be one, but to who's reason is unknown
As creation is known before the weight of a name
And the shape to guide it's thought and passage,
The specs of soil are flesh in the hands of a flower
And it's course is but you in eyes of darkness
For the truth is as flexible as a lie,
That outlasts and proves so.
And I pinch my skin, my skin is I, my skin is a lie
And truth in it's sensations - who knows, to dream?
(It exists, it exists, it exists)though to who are none
For a costume is as alive as a thought, living before it's known,
Gregarious in love, men fall under it's magic
And see they're magicians themselves - never believing so
And a chameleon, deceivers and angels, live in themselves as all.

I am no more than a silhouette evoked with rage;

Alone On This Site

The Sun has not yet rose.
In this endless night
On this Earth I roam,
I am one, alone.

Rivers Of The Universe

Rivers of the Universe
Exile marble neophytes
In ducts faithless as Dawn:
Such freedom condemned to verse,

To The Black Muse

O' watery Muse of transparency!
Entwined within exaltation's summit
Eclipsing, from throats, vales of poesy
For the will of a canopying Hermit,

The 9th Song

We hold divinity upon our fingertips
And destiny within the cresses of our lips;
The embryo of desire, beyond sense,
Unlock's memory's key to existence—

Virginal Boy

Then, with a weak hand, he wrote:
‘I must stop dreaming, I am nearly seventeen,
To forge that grand old age bespoke
I mustn't rest in an evocation wisdom has yet seen
