Listen to: Ólafur Arnalds – Near Light (via Fabrizio Paterlini)

Cars carelessly carry cattle corn


Falling steeper

And steeper

Magic cut by heartless reapers.


Hearts tossed around like dart

Faces fade further than far

Haunted becomes the cattle car

Hush, shish, and shush,

Do not rush, push, or crush,


“Hold me tight,” she murmurs,




The clock missed the last tock


“Evade me from guilt,” she heaves

Autumn trees have no leaves

Stitch her heart into weaves

Sway her to the music of trees

Bring your knife and start to cleave


Salvage her remains for hope,

Unshackle her hands from your rope,

Leaves a distance, she has learned how to cope,

Unchain her from your yoke,

Save her from fate’s joke


Creep closer from behind

Listen to wind chimes

Surrender to nature’s rhyme

Let your souls together intertwine

Seek solitude, break every line


Hush, shish, and shush,

Do not rush, push, or crush,

Lick your lips like mush

Feel the power of a touch

Absorb the fluids, let them gush


Feed the crave with emotion,

Her tenderness casted as a potion,

Kiss her relish to submission,

Twist your limbs to her devotion,

Unease this hidden tension


Make no sound,

Cry no tears,

Twirl round and round,

Fear no fears,

The moment is yet to be found


Arms rested on shoulders,

Bare shoulders grow warmer,

Tall toes tingle in tremors,

Passion storms veins in thunder,

The mind ceases to wonder,


Hush, shish, and shush,

End of thought.

    What can i say…. anchor ahoy .. don’t fear the reaper .. lovely words.. raw emotions.. if u can write with no rhyme then that would be better.. release the words from bondage.. 😀

    • I was always taught to fear the reaper.

      Yes, I experimented with the sound of words for the first time. I usually let only thoughts control the rhyme.

      I tried to implement a few poetry techniques to see if would make a difference.. 🙂
