Dark Vault

Jeff Simpson Ravenna concepts


Whisper to me my raven

my shadow guide

my spirit tugs free as it answers your call and we merge

to  glide

to skim

over the green black canopy of trees

seeking shelter in the cool darkness

hidden from the penetrating gaze of the bright moon

to listen

 to feel

what twisting desires

what secrets

may be found drifting

among the rising dreamscapes and feral night thoughts

caught in the trap of rough ink feathers and held

to be added to the piles of poisonous gold

 of tarnished treasure

kept hidden and secret  in my arsenal 

the dark vaults of the raven goddess

We separate and solitary once again

I sit with you at my ear

and trail gloating fingers through the newly gathered bouquet of sins…

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
