There are greater fears
Than that
Death’s dominion is
A shroud at best
The closing lid of the coffin
Just a doorway beyond

There are deeper darknesses within
Than this
The blood that beats
Its circulatory path may spill
Like red wine
Soothing the descent

Some hallways hold terrors beyond
Our thoughts
The lyricism of a lover
Slicing through cold passion
Is a ghostly form
Walking through

There are greater fears
Than this
A demon’s smile is still
A smile
And even such lost creatures
Sometimes cry

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
