PostSubject: DANCING WITH THE DEVIL Thu Sep 12, 2013 4:04 am

The jogger runs his daily mile
His mind far away, his face a weary smile
The woes of the world don’t mean a thing to him
His world, his life, his days are growing thin

To just complete this one last race
No prize to hold high, just enough to save face
Hold his head up high and once more cry
For the pleasure of freedom in this dying mans eye

To make it to the end before the rot sets in
Creeping through his bones like a leper from within
If only he knew why, his eyes are now too dry
To shed a single tear, no longer able to deny

Just one more mile and the game will be up
Another soul to collect, another life to corrupt
The deal at once welcome as the answer to his dreams
A debt to be collected and added to the screams

The end is in view as the pain starts to mount
The long and lonely path for which he has to account
A cold, creeping shadow reaches out from within
This you can’t outrun, its a game you cannot win.

SILENT SENTINELS

Shaken by the breeze
The swollen branches
Of the summer trees

Swaying in rythmic fascination
Flexing in triumphant exultation

The rushing wind cries
Through the fluttering leaves
As it tries

To shake loose the seed
For future generations to feed

Glorious gentle giants
Keeping tireless weathered eyes

Silent sentinels
Guarding natures wonderous skies
Here since the dawn if time
Till long after yours or mine

PostSubject: A WHISP OF MEMORY Fri Sep 13, 2013 9:50 am

A WISP OF MEMORY

Slip into the darkness
And relish the cold embrace
As the chilling night caresses
The colour from your face.

Inhale the chill night air
Feel it's icy tendrils reaching
Deep within the depths of your soul
Tenderly beseeching

The fragile life you hold within
Your tired, tortured self
A flickering flame growing dim
A book on a dusty shelf

And the life you always knew
Says farewell and then goodbye
As the sad slow truth does dawn
As you ask yourself but why.

How can you leave
What you've loved all your life?
What you've nurtured and nursed
Through trouble and strife.

Watch it slip silently free
Of your frantic fingers.
Til nought but a whisp of memory
Is sadly all that lingers.

PostSubject: MOTHER Tue Sep 17, 2013 1:29 pm

MOTHER

She was the one I could rely on
In times when things were scarce
To always find a way to get by
When thing's went from bad to worse.

She was a true matriarch
The gel at the centre of all
Never too far away
Never more than a call

She was the one who bore the pain
Held me close and kept me warm
Through the cold and the rain
Second to all, she would never complain

She held onto my hand
Through all the scary times
My first days at school
Stood in terrified lines

Then at the end of each day
When I'd really had enough
She'd be stood at the door waiting
A warm heart full of love

And when illness struck hard
Laid up and laid low
I had the comfort of knowing
She would never let go

Sacrificing all
For her flesh and blood
Always standing second
To the common good

On that dark lonely night
So many years ago
When deaths door stood ajar
Silently beckoning me to go

My overriding memory
Much more than my own fears
Is the heart wrenching sound
Of her dreadful terrified tears

And yet she was there
To love me and to care

All through our lives
Through thick and through thin
Through innocent laughter
And heartbreaking sin

Through sunshine and showers
Through wind and through snow
There is one thing for certain
One thing we all know

The rock of our lives
And forsaking all others
She will always be there
Our sweet loving Mother

PostSubject: STORM FRONT Thu Sep 26, 2013 2:07 pm

STORM FRONT

Away in the distance on a cold dreary night
The horizon is lit by flickering lights
From storm clouds as black as the darkest heart
The lightning tears the very air apart

The grumbling mass of swirling bile
The silence, the earth, the night to defile
Like distant portents of desolate doom
Creating sorry shadows, a dusk far too soon

The dark silhouette of the cumulus mass
Allowing no view of the sunlight to pass
A force so unequalled in natures good grace
Rumbling and grumbling and gathering pace

The birds, from the trees, are fluttering by
Away from the ever darkening sky
Cats and dogs and people too
Running for cover, know what they must do

The first drops of rain as the vanguard appears
The fist sign of the tumult that we know, now, is near
A blinding flash and a rumble so loud
As the heavens open, shedding tears to the ground

The deluge arives with a deafening roar
Of wooshing water flooding over the floor
Wind whipping trees, waving to and fro
Bowing and scraping the branches below

The bright flash of lightning and following boom
Rattling it’s way trough the desolate gloom
The rain turns to hail bouncing high off the ground
Crashing and glanging the rooves all around

Barn doors rattle in percussive complaint
As the hail dents metal and dislodges paint
Cracks in the windows now threatening to break
The shutters are creaking a sorry debate

The hail starts to ease as the storm marches on
It’s battle crys raging a warning to come
As quick as it started, the hail disappears
Leaving soft gentle showers to wash away tears

As clouds start to break, the suns rays shining through
A hint of the sky so clear and so blue
The clouds have marched on and the heat on the ground
Raising whispers of steam floating lazily round

Nature, The Master and servant of none
Mother of all ‘neath the shimmering sun
From fresh sandy shores to deep frozen waste
A force that no other could hope to outpace

Another gem from Darth...so talented :-)##SMILE
Posted on September 30, 2013 by dartherino

SMILE

I remember a time when life was alive
With wonderous mysteries of carefree design
When clouds were fluffy and brilliant white
Planes soaring high and then out of sight

The innocence of mind and a happier soul
Playing with mates, we would fight and cajole
Running around in the land of the free
Not a care in the world, just cries of glee

Hide ‘n’ seek and footy as well
Playing on rope swings down in the dell
Flying a kite you just made from sticks
A bag and a tail, watch it dance and do tricks

Crawling through grass trying not to be seen
With toy gun in hand and knees, now, so green
Attacking the fort built with old cupboard and box
With a rat-a-tat-tat and mud on your socks

Building a den in the back yard with friends
Old wood, damp carpet and curtains with tatty ends
An old bit of plastic is the window outside
To watch for the enemy, “…be quiet & hide!…”

Climbing way up to the top of the trees
Holding on tight as it sways in the breeze
Falling back down with a thud and a shout
Hole in your coat, stuffing hanging out

Playing on swings, a roundabout and slide
Screaming and shouting with eyes open wide
Abandoning all to the whim of the day
“Where shall we go…” and “What shall we play…”

“What time it it mister?”, “I’m late, gotta run…”
“Me tea will be cold, get a clout on me bum…”
Running through puddles down back streets and paths
Right upto the door still having a laugh

Quick tea and telly and then off to bed
Except on Sundays, “Get a bath, wash you’re head!”
A peacefull sleep, then a yawn, wide awake
The sun is shining. I’ll go out and play…

Treasure each moment and treasure your life
Hold onto your childhood, free of trouble and strife
Remember those days, in your darkest hours
The sights and the sounds and the colourful flowers

The child that resides in the heart of my soul
Is a child born in freedom, love to behold
A child fed adventure and joyful love
We exist here together like hand in glove

Never let go of the child, inside
Just open your heart, open it wide
In these sad, restless days, you can count all the while
On the sweet child inside who can still make you smile

DARTHERINO WORLD
POEMS, RANTZ AND BLOGS

THE WRAITH
THE WRAITH

We met on a cold and stormy day
The words were mute, they were taken away
The howling wind blowing wild through the trees
The breath from our mouths deceived with ease

I felt a dread as we met in stealth
You didn't ask for gifts or wealth
Your goals were set in insidious ways
Not even a glint in your eye to betray

You crept into my life like an assassins wraith
Attacking in shadows, you needed no faith
Your weapon, a glint of steel in the breeze
You, the master of death, dispensing with ease

I never felt, on that tearful day
The wind on my face from the sky dull and grey
My card was marked with blood, as ink
To the depths of despair and the desolate brink

You stole my soul like a thief in the night
My back was against you, no way I could fight
So swiftly dispatched and sent on my way
No more to return, nothing more could I say.

Dartherino

FOAMING FURY
FOAMING FURY

Against a backdrop of broiling grey
The dancing colours flap & wave away
To all who can see and for all left to be
A warning about the worsening sea

A relentless outburst of desperate cries
Fighting the force of the cloudy sighs
And the seas whip up a daring wager
To all who seek the thrill of danger

Teasing and testing the brave and bold
Icy waves, so strong and cold
As eyes of love cry tears of pain
The battering wind and stinging rain

White capped waves, a growing swell
A cold dark tomb, or the gates of hell
Inviting a cold and clammy demise
To wash the life from dying eyes

A tumbling mass of death and desire
A tempting lure for those of inner fire
Like a moth to a flame, an unfathomable pull
Obliviously entering ‘neath the cry of a gull

Be he brave or foolish for reasons unknown
Ignoring the pressure and deafening groan
He climbs atop his trusty board
On cresting waves the surfer soared

Flying across tumultuous waves
Where many have and will find their graves
A sea of life that will take your breath
As it sucks you down to a cold, dark death.

Dartherino
November 2013
