Dogs Do Not Weep

She stares into the distance
At nothing. At something.
Expecting sight to be rewarded with newness.
Queens have risen and died, kings have fallen,
In the time she took to realize
Her place was small.
Dogs do not look upon the fallen and weep.
She stood, to eternally be.
Just that, to be.
What did she stand to do?
She reached down,
And helped her neighbor to his feet.

The kings Walls Have Eyes

Why do the watching spy?
This question of the eyes
That congregate on the wall,
Who are they watching if at all?
“Their gaze is cast on those,
Who with violence would impose.”
Fools! The eyes are cold and cannot see
Into the hearts of you and me.
They grow from fear and it permits
A listener now to come and sit.
Now that the kings walls have ears as well,
Tell me,
What safety is there with such secrets to sell?

The Shadow Burns

download29
Suffer the waiting,
Holding the fear.
Having all fate,
Hold back the tear.
Once was above,
And now below.
Not sure when,
We can let this go.
All that was gone;
Now it returns.
A shadow of a song
Watches it burn.
I am the shadow.
I am the king.
I’ll never fall low.
I’ll burn everything.
