Viola Grey Poems

I'll wear you always,
etched to my skin
mythically rising from the flames
where you live to fight

You are an arrow
piercing my heart
with glowing joy,
rivalled only

Have you faded into another day,
only to linger with the night
where a thousand dancing dreams
kiss your brow.

I'm lost without a reason to face each day,
curtains drawn bring uncertainty
as sleeps warm emrace turns cold
inside a moon's final farewell.

Into the dark, dank cellar
I lead you by the hand
towards a marble alter
laid with crimson sheets,

Searching for answers in my teacup,
looking deep into the tarot dealers lines,
searching stars, numbers and magical runes,
maybe... I should just search your eyes.


Walking alone
through lifes rocky path
with nothing steady
to break my fall.


Savage little naked fool
with puny weapons of love
fly yourself to another heart
before I snap your wings.

There was a time
when all I ever wanted
was to sink into you,
devour your tender mouth,

this is my mind -
a light I cannot switch off
illuminating with clarity

Don't fear that truth you hide,
it escapes your weary clutches as you slumber.
Face tomorrow with certainty,
it holds secrets of longing yet discovered.

Built there to protect...not to repel...
but why on earth would I let you
behind this wall.

Lingered long upon this dream
where nothing is as it may seem,
word of colours silently scream
and truth belongs only to me.


Hands drip, cold,
fevered claws cling
to neverending visages
of tormented rest.

Why would you be
all I am
if not carved from
temptations shaking hands.

I don't need you
to make me happy,
but I want you here
to help me breathe,

You can smell it in the air
long before the pavement darkens
with each fat, slow drop.
Electricity sparks upon our flesh

Memories make a liar of me,
their shadowed existence
never saw the sun
of your smile,

You have breathed new life into my soul,
where you shall swim forevermore,
into oceans of deep green fire,
I am slave to your desires,

Do I really have to leave a light on for you,
are you not clever enough to find your way
after another long night.
And what do you mean you can't read my mind

The Best Poem Of Viola Grey

A New Tattoo

I'll wear you always,
etched to my skin
mythically rising from the flames
where you live to fight
another day.
Emerging from ashes
of your own demise,
resplendent reds upon golden fire,
a teardropp to heal,
song within your cry,
power of the Gods.
Above your wings
lays the inscription:
Nothing Lasts Forever,
in stark reference
to the life I know.
You, however,
will fly upon my flesh
as long as I survive,
until I'm bathed in fire.

Goodbye has touched me. You dont really know if there is anyone out there who thinks like that anymore, sometimes you think your the only one. Glad to see that there is someone out there that can express words that mean many things on so many levels and want to share them. x
