Love Songs to the Wraith

Updated on January 31, 2015


Space is large, the earth is small.

What is the worth of it all?

A drop of rain, a spark of flame.

Is reduced to the mundane.

For the starlight gaze upon your face,

forever ties me to this place.

In blissfull bondage I would be,

if only it was to thee.

For everything pales to compare

with a simple lock of your hair.

so if why I live, is not with me.

What purpose is there to be?

A Stich in Time.

Stop time. upon this line.

Rewind enternity to a different space.


Again the lights come, follow to another place.

dance with the fae, smoke with the salamanders.


Blue light translucent by nature, calming in soothing waves

that wash across the grid to restore balance.


The strings arrive from the grave to stich the doll to her place

If scizzors fall from my face, or if there is a lack of faith.

don't blame me.

      "the strings arrive from the grave, to stitch the doll to her place, if scizzor fall from my face, or if there is a lack of faith, don't blame me." my ex use to go by the name doll-parts, and still probly does.... at any rate, for awhile I was very adamant about us being created as a pair in heaven...the grave relates to our dead relationship that i would think of often and the strings relate to her new male fiancée' (most men can play stringed interments, i can't or at least most men that the women i have dated are attracted too, despite this i really want to learn to play violin, but i digress...) The scizzors are my attempt to sever this, but the lack of faith shows the duel nature of my new found willingness to accept our separation coupled with my lingering desire to actively hurt her relationship (witch i didn't do of course :P)

      "The strings arrive from the grave, to stitch the doll in place".... I don't know why but it has such a lovely ring to it....
