ANGER

"A man is about as big as the things that make him angry"

--Winston Churchill, a British orator, author and prime minister during world War II.

Gladiator

Look at me-
withered by the sands of time,
and scorched by the flames of life.

The day has come.
in my fate, I have no escape.

For in eternity, I shall live
and mortality shall perish.

The fight of a lifetime is on-
I, against my invincible foe.

Stoned Fish

Loud cries of the shore
Echo from dawn to twiglight -
Yet, the sea never dies.

SATISFACTION

Unleash our flames, and set this room on fire-- that no one can ever put out. Let not this rusted chain clasp our minds and blacken our innocent minds. Tonight, let's satisfy this craving, for tomorrow might not let another chance come alive.

Persephone's plea


For once,
bathe me
with your blood
and with the heat I have always longed for.

Sing to me
the hymn of the beasts
as I chase you
with the laughter you used to have.

With your soul,
feed me
until you satisfy my hunger.

Be part of me,
and together,
let us start our voyage
on the seas of fire.

For once,
bathe me
with your blood
and with the heat I have always longed for.

Sing to me
the hymn of the beasts
as I chase you
with the laughter you used to have.

With your soul,
feed me
until you satisfy my hunger.

Be part of me,
and together,
let us start our voyage
on the seas of fire.

Touring Ruby

I can no longer visit you
in my pure-white;
no more photos
of this saintly face.
Yes, no more of my sanctity.

But as I dance,
watch me
twirl in a fierce fabulous red -
geared with armors and shields.

Rile's eyes

Seal these eyes,
whose flames
no flood can drown,
nor beads of tears ever doust.

Cover these ears,
which heed the pretense
of your deceitful pleas.

(Shut these lips,
for I won't bother talk
and be betrayed by my own
words.)
