An Old Friend

Standard

As I wandered through the streets
The moon hung full behind black clouds
The way was wet from rains before
And lights were on behind each door

At the corner of 3rd and Thanatos
I met up with an old friend, leaning on a scythe
Black cloak hung around him
He grinned to see me, but then again
He grins at everyone

We walked into the diner there
“Two shots for me and my friend,” I said
“I’m paying,” said he
And handed two coins of antiquity
To the waitress; she took them silently

We sat down at a table by the window
And talked of things old and new
Of killing moons, and flying beasts
Of worlds cold, and poems of war
Of legends ancient, and heroes new
Where realms collide, and shadows fly

And then our talk turned to me
Of things I’d hunted in the sea
Of duels with angels and demons
Of secret cults, and beating hearts
Of assassin’s work, and warrior’s dreams

And then we thought to speak of him
Of men’s last words, and their destination
Of how they died, and why
Of the life of souls, and homes of spirits
Of those who cheated him, their ends, their means
And what then final life would be

And then, when we had finished
We wandered into the night
And then he spoke

“Come upon a journey with me
Through the tombs of the titans
Through the crypts of the ancients
And the coffins of the ages.”

This he spoke, and thus we went
Universes passed before my eyes
Ages, aeons, all collided
Falling through the void of time

Then we walked before the gate
Beyond which realms eternal lie
Bliss is there, and torment too
And the solemn grey fields between
There we went.

Our Rose Is Red

Standard

One day I was walking through the land of the dead
And I stopped to see one stone, two bodies beneath
“Loving in life and in death” inscribed on the head
So I asked them to tell me their story
And this they said

Our rose is red, our years are young
Our hearts are beating, each day is fresh
Songs of life and love we’ve sung
We can see only the rising sun

Our rose is red, our lives are bright
Older now, we’ve seen the dark
But still we are each other’s light
Our sun so bright, it drowns the night

Our rose is red, our hairs are grey
Our eyes are dim, the sun is setting
Over the lights, grey shadows lay
Our bodies old, wrinkled, our hearts yet youthful

Our rose is red, our bones are cold
Our bodies dead, our lives are gone
Even the coffins are rotten and old
But still our hands are joined together
And in realms eternal we walk

And as I looked down at the tombstone
I wondered how a love like that could be
And I looked down, by the gravestone
I saw a rose still growing red

For when the stars fall
And the sun drowns in shadow
Our love is still strong

And when the stars flicker and fade
Our love is the light
We are the sun in the rain
