A Bitter draught
by Tammy Darby

I drank the bitter draught of that which they call affection
And spewed it from my mouth in distaste
Finding it lacking in truthfulness and loyalty
And a propensity for laying the soul to waste

Again, I brought the crystal glass to my lips
Once more, spew it from my mouth
I found no sweetness in a mixture of false emotions
Of constant lies and doubt

Condemned to my own living hell
by Tammy Darby

My thirst for revenge was so great
The earth trembled in fright
And in my unbounded fury
Blinded the sun itself
And flung the moon from the sky
The stars fled from their cluster’s sparkling ever so bright
The universe conceded, vanquished, cowered and cried

My anger was vehement
HeavIng forth oceans from their beds

Vanishing stars and Endless nights
by Tammy Darby

It is common knowledge amongst those of ink and pen
There are many that flee from the light
Those who yearn with all their being for endless nights
As shimmering stars forever fade from the sky

The silent ones who thrive and bloom in the cold darkness
Devoid of sound and beyond human sight
Kindred souls writhing in tempestuous maniacal rhyme
Boldly defiant of normalities laws, realities, boundaries, and time.

An Hourglass and Sand
by Tammy Darby

Why are the traits of creativity and insanity
An hourglass and sand
Is it an inherited genetic defect?
Or a wonderment of man
An anomaly of nature
A chemical imbalance in the Ribonucleic acid
A minuscule knot in the DNA strands

Many minds revered and unknown don the genius crown
The emotive disturbing creations of Goya’s dark-stained hands

Medusa
by Tammy Darby

Among the Gorgons that counted three
Touched by comeliness being mortal only she
Beauty that in awe of the universe bowed down
Her glorious sumptuous hair a glowing grace
More exquisite than Aphrodite’s star-studded crown

Pursued and seduced by Poseidon was fair Medusa
The God of the jade seas and cerulean oceans deep
In the sacred temple of Athena
His unrelenting passion for her was consecrated

Death
by Tammy Darby

Unseen I watched her stop eating and sleeping, broken she wasted away while her very being crumbled with despair and loss. She became gaunt, almost skeletal, withdrawn shutting out the world. Lost in a maze of confusion, trapped between loyalty and betrayal, after all, he had done, she still loved him. He was neither honorable or worthy.

Pitying her and her behalf I filled his dreams with sobs and cries of suffering while sprinkling his soul with the light touch of paranoia, and cursed his heart. I called upon him in the darkest hour of the night, so years turned into months, months into days, and minutes became seconds.

Trembling he meekly asked my name. Emotionless and unmoved I remained in the shadows of his mind said nothing, and stared at him without speaking. Once again, his voice tainted with fear and hope for a reprieve, he asked me, ‘what is your name?
I smiled and in my softest voice whispered in his ear,
'Death.'

Fairies and Pixies
by Tammy Darby

Fairies are not composed of all beauty and ethereal gossamer wings
That live in dark hidden glens and sing bewitching songs
It is whispered by those brave enough to roam mythical forests
You can often hear fluttering sounds
and chanting until the sunrise, bright and gold

I was said by the Gervase of Tilbury
They first resided in England its territory being large
Flew across the channel and settled quite nicely in Killarney
Upon hearing the legends of the splendid Irish lands

A Modern human being
by Tammy Darby

I am transforming myself into a program
My future residence a synthetic bot
My mind is cold, logical, and I am sane
Realistic and now exuding practicality
Being no longer infected by the scourge
My feeble heart no longer rules my brain

I brush empathy the nuisance, away with a sigh
Ignore sympathy pleading, with a disapproving eye
Laugh at pity with disdain, slightly amused
