Persistence of the unforgetting – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)

Sunken deep like forgotten wrecks.A hate that broods, contorts and flex.This grudge is old and just like oil.Black with time, and within me coils.Staining my soul with its heartless rind.Unforgotten, despite the passage of time.But time has come to break the bond.That swirling hole, that stagnant pond.I will no longer give food to the beast.ItContinue reading “Persistence of the unforgetting – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)”

Portending – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences) I have tasted from golden cups.As the city around me fell.In coloured eyes I saw the sea and the sky beneath me swell.I have lived and be damned.For the lost dreams like sand.Slip through my fingers like Sunday afternoons.Yet this example of perseverance.Sticks, despite interference, from the voices all around.With my notions of happiness.OfContinue reading “Portending – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)”

Wish the end – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences) Simple words say more in silence.Like the break between heartbeats.Like waves hitting the sand.To swim or drown in your fiery light.You cover your eyes with intent.Stealing the beauty away.Keep us trapped.Keep us safe.Locked into your skin like DNA.Longing after life’s mystery.Build the pyre from your bones and burn me inside out.Collapsing into your cells.AContinue reading “Wish the end – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)”

Faling into the sky – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences) What burns, are just the remains.Stupid parts, not protected.Cells that claim to be free.Yet remain divided.It’s so easy to escape, but then it will all be over.Covered in dust and wonderment.The skin of a dead society.Strip away the flesh, make me someone else.Threaded with distaste and apathy.A patience wains and cuts a last strand.TheContinue reading “Faling into the sky – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)”

Light – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequence)

The light in a teardrop, approaching.Destroying the dark that sits like soil on your cheeks.A wrecking river of black, dispelled by a single candle.That single effort of change.Who knows how small the room is when the lights are off.When the darkness wins.Yet each day the universe contracts, birthing out the sun.Raining down solar tears toContinue reading “Light – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequence)”

Tide – Mark Ryan How high to stem the breaching tide.That washes daily into our lives.A rise and fall, with horrific force.Split and cut right though our course.And though at times it seems sublime.It slowly soaks with turpentine.A drowning water in our lungs.Of life’s debris, while Satan hums.And watches while we slowly sink.God’s dye is cast, a deepContinue reading “Tide – Mark Ryan”

Rush —Mark Ryan

Humbled, caught in such rapture. Clinging to joy like a root to a tree. No longer myself, yet loved still. Understanding fate’s anatomy. Chaos now silenced, calm like a church. We pray in the days that unfold. Burning them fully like candle wicks of life. Threatened each day by the wind that is blowing. FromContinue reading “Rush —Mark Ryan”

Sparkle – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences) Placing hands on such skin.Wishing to dive right in.And swim, in the soul full of diamonds.I broke you out amber.Pulled away the tar and thick oil.Which stained my hands and heart.One kiss pulls me under.One word lifts me up.The vibrations are clear, and stardust tells no lies.For heaven assumed.Once prayed and pried out ofContinue reading “Sparkle – Mark Ryan (Havoc and Consequences)”
