Light Bringer

Poem By Andrea Rieck

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

Can’t you save me
Can’t you feel me

No more do I sense the sun on my face
Nor does the breeze caress my mind
To me, the sound of the wind’s lullaby is dead…
I’m a sleepwalker without senses
That views the world in shades of red

Forsaken by the seasons
I hide from the rest of the world
The wolves – I’m the rabbit
The one with the toxic wrath

But I can feel you
Your cold stares from places I can’t see
Why wont you take your shield down for me?
An abandoned child
Until my innocence gave way to thorns

A moon’s tear lights your eye
You want me, I know you do
Your dark desire
Are you afraid you’ll become the same?

You can trace the path of stars that I uncovered
While I was drowning in my thoughts
You can see the world that I discovered
Take my hand – I don’t want to walk alone

Hurry
I don’t have much time
Look me in the eyes
If you’ll just touch me I know I’ll be alright

Oh light bringer
Save me before I’m lost completely

It's Autumn Again

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

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

Silence
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
