Music Mash: Nico & Sammy Slabbinck

by fyarlgiles


I’ll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know
I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you’re home

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

I find it hard to believe you don’t know
The beauty that you are
But if you don’t let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won’t be afraid

When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you

With a tongue sharp

and unafraid

I  pierce


  muted in-betweens

scarlet hues


browns and blues

with only modesty

 to lose

drowning in a sea of grey

the keenest eye

is blind to lights

that swim

Where the viaduct looms like a bird of doom

as it shifts and cracks

Where secrets lie in the border fires

in the humming wires

On a gathering storm comes a tall handsome man

In a dusty black coat with a red right hand

You’re one microscopic cog

in his catastrophic plan

Designed and directed by

his red right hand

Song of the Hag

by fyarlgiles


let this sickness rain down

on the meadows below

til the dirt bubbles hot

and the daisies won’t grow

all the roses and lillies can fester and peel

in fog of the dawn

where nothing is real

The Long Goodbye

sleep a while,

 heavy soul

weary traveler

red and old

bury burdens in the sand


that sleep

will make you whole

The Body

by fyarlgiles


onyx fingers curl

and stretch

through stone and steal

through blood and death

heaven glows in all of her

the sky below

the sea above

coming slowly

like the daylight

orange, red, and yellow flow

all is brilliant

like the morning

worn but strong in clouds of silk
