He's No Angel

Poem By Michael Ernst

Yeah, I see him
And he see's me, I know
Skulking in the shadows
Into the light he will not go

The hood may hide his face
But the scythe gives him away
Dummy brought a knife to a gunfight
But it's his game, let him make his play

No, he's no stranger
Yes, we've met before
I'm up 2 to nothing, and he knows I know
That he's keeping score

If I knew which alais to use today
I'd call him out by name
Azrael, El Muerte, Ankou, Odin, Yama
Really doesn't matter, they're all the same

But now is not the time or place
We will meet again, but on my terms
It will be decisive this time
For one of us hell awaits and burns

No matter how it ends, I win
Because when it's all said and done
The best score he can hope for is...
Mike 2 Reaper 1

Loss Of...

Loss it seems is the worst kind of sorrow
Loss of dreams, the dreams of tomorrow
Loss of the moments you two should have shared
Loss of opportunities to show her you cared

Love Adrift

How I long to feel the waves of your love crashing upon the shores of my soul again.

Washing and smoothing the rippled sands of my internal strife,
leaving me speechless, stunned at how your every word and movement penetrates me, filling my world with wonder and beauty.


Lost my wife
Lost my best friend
Lost my lover where will it end

Always You

It was you..always you
from the moment that we met
It was you.. always you
that night I'll not forget

My Existence

I watch as the sun sets and feel the burning of its weight upon my empty chest
I feel the labored pulsing of my broken half heart, as it tries to push what life is left inside me through deadened veins

The distant wails of a shattered soul in search of its missing yet omnipresent mate echo in the caverns of my mind that once held only hopes and dreams


Excuse me. Can you help me?
I have a few questions. Do you have a minute?

What is love?
