Josho (the ascension)

Mere minutes follow that of this midnight hour As the devil stands under an old leafless tower A little girl no more than the wee age of ten Like still life, she haunts the dreams of men An erect solider with skin as pale as the dead Hair as black as night, resting neatly on […]

Sakura no mizumi (cherry blossom lake)

Under the casual guise of its cherry blossomed reach She entangles herself within woolen weaved sheets In a confused daze, pacing herself to a gentle beat Trailing them as they’re swept off by a bristling breeze The night is yet young; the crickets sing their songs She wantonly wets her lips, with a tinsel budded […]

Kokoro no me (minds eye)

In the midst of the twilight symphony that surrounds, There is a feint familiarity among several simple sounds. As gentle steps sweep the surface of ruptured ground, A feeling once lost, has now been unexpectedly found As hypnotic rhythms echo from a closing heartbeat, The aging pine ripples as she discreetly takes her seat The […]

Fuyu no nayami no tane (winters bane)

Beyond my brow, lies the endless sea of winter white Writhing winds enmesh me as they deny evening’s light The soles of my feet step wearily into icy pits of snow The pain in their gaping wounds no one will ever know Behind me, the haunting hounds of Nordic night reside By strength of will, […]

Bosei: Nensho (tryanny: the burning)

Watching her…watching me. I silently slip into relentless agony As I continue to drift into chasms of desire, lust and sodomy Just like the famed model, she flaunts the fullness of her hair With long arduous blond waves, one cannot help but stare I am the loner, the yearner, the castaway in empty space The […]

Hinikuna (ironic)

There is no moment more ghastly than that of this dreadful night Bleeding between the frozen arches of my arms as I held her tight Tailored in garments steadily sown in fleecy layers of sparkling white Eclipsed in streaks of crimson, the stains which we’ve learnt to spite On the eve of a grandiose event, […]

Shotai (true colours)

..And this is the hallow place in which his pain resides Therein lies a garden blanketed in contour and contrast Whispering winds animating prickled similes of green Smeared in rainbow voices collected into invisible streams Drunken with sadness; lingering in this dark desolate place Watching broken leaves trickle along the stubs on his face A […]

Tsundora (Tundra)

How miserably she lays across precarious lakes of winter snow Lashing layers of fluff from her furry pale coat into its crystal glow Her cold twitching tail dancing with the winds of evening skies Exposing her wide dripping grin under piercing watershed eyes Alone is she, strolling in a waltzing forest of hushed naked trees […]
