Poem #2

Dragon Blood

Beneath the Fire Red Sky

Underneath The Star Lit Heavens

Beside a Pool of Blood and Magic…

The Baby Dragon is Born

His Egg Cracked, One of Three, But Only His Lies Open

His Mother, Oh So Near, But Look to the Skies and you shall See Her

What Now, Why This, Its first thoughts mustered

Swords have been Drawn, Son, The Mother Replies

And only you will have the Strength to Break them…

The Baby Draggling Stretches forth its Black Reddened Wings…

Its Teeth Sharp, His Eye’s Glistening Dark with Bright Stars Within them

If you Insist, Mother, I’ll Rise Again and Strike them Down Before me

But Know you This…

These Mortal Games of Power and Mist

Are Really Beginning to Bore Me

Suddenly, His Eyes Aim Up, and to the Air He does go…

His Size Does Morph, Fifty Folds One’d Say, He Cracks The Sky Above Them

Thunder Roars, Lightning Strikes, The Skies Fall to Pieces for him

When I Return…

These Humans will have Learned, Alone and Unguided…

They’ll Pay the Price, I Won’t Be Nice, My Dragon’s Heart shall Wane Them…

Winter, Lust, and Wonder

Scribblings by James Mahoney (2011)

Copyright © 2012-19 James Mahoney

Back in 2011, I started this Writing Blog… And one of the things I wrote, were Poems

In 2012 I Self Published my First Ever Poetry Book, ‘Winter, Lust And Wonder’

Those Books are Available Here (Printed Version) & Here (Kindle Version)

Here’s Poem #1

Intrepid

This Bold Darkness that clouds my everyday way

Hold her hand, it says, but there is no hand to be held

Touch her face… No face to be known

You cannot escape me, though you try, it urges

Why not give in… But to what

Pain my boy, feel the pain, you now deflect and evade

And so I hold, see, feel what passes

It is not… Pleasant

 

This Bold Darkness seems to know my name

Feel my breath… Heads my way

I try to reason with it, it nods and says

You speak of pleas, I speak of truths

I long for Light… It’s where I stay

The warmth of love, so far away

 

Wait, be still, I think it sleeps

This Bold Darkness rests for now

Things Are Hard

Things Are Hard

Are we truly alone…

Dancing the same song

Was this ever real…

Destined to be alone

I can’t say I’m surprised…

Words written in the skies

Dark… Deep… Violet nights

Staggering… Falling

Crying… Calling

It’s not that you don’t care

But you’re not there

Paint Splash

If I was to paint the sky…

No matter why

Splashes would make their way…

Outside the line

If I was to paint my life…

In perfect strokes

Drips would survive…

Memories crush you

They define you…

Try as I might

For perfection…

I crumble

And fall the night…

Hope is the only thing that survives

It’s Difficult

it’s difficult

to see the light

the reason why…

deep inside

the light it dances…

the new sunrise

colors splash upon the sea…

images of love

tranquility

and yet we wonder…

question why

we hold this light…

prisoner

deep inside

 

 

Hope

hope

in the beginning

each of us…

had a choice

good

or bad

our power, it’s folded away…

but has not gone away

redefine…

the shell you’ve created

is an illusion…

we are alive

we are the light

The Light

The Light

It’s not always clear…

But it’s always there

Do you stop

Inhale

Or do you despair 

We control time…

When we bask in the sublime

Mountains…

Sky

Endless reasons why

We’re here
