It's Autumn Again

Poem By Andrea Rieck

It’s autumn again
Leaves whisper the sound of our past
In loss they pay a descent
To the ground we fall

It’s autumn again
Our song is sung by the wind
Echoes of loss and grief
Through chilled air we wade

It’s autumn again
The waters grow as cold as our hearts
We are alike – crusted in ice
In ourselves we freeze

It’s autumn again
Flowers vanish from our sadness
Our beauty grows weak
Covered in frost we wither

It’s autumn again
The rain falls like our tears
Can’t dry our eyes
From the sky we descend

It’s autumn again
The sun shines then fails like us
Our sight becomes a wintry gray
Lost in darkness we will fade

It’s autumn again

Light Bringer

I’m the shadow that light casts away…
I’m the smoke that came after the fire
I’m the star that died the day it was born…
The one that cried for it after

My Sweet Insanity

My world is pink and black
Made of paint and carpenter’s hats!
Your world is dull and plain –
Hail the living of the sane!

The Broken Mirror

On the floor lies a secret now shattered
Watching eyes now lay as broken pieces
Harrower of one-time tales long battered
Speaks no more of sights of passing faces

Lullaby For A Lonely One

No prayers
No songs
No voices

Here By The River

Here at the river I sit
The sun is bleak
And the clouds are low
But beside me butterflies flutter to-and-froe
