    Rocky Shores Now So Sorely Bruise These Naked Feet

    Bitter the thickest of brine at the water's edge
    bringing memories of your lying fallen pledge;
    clashing with hoarded treasures of hot wondrous nights
    are your empty words, once believed to be so right.

    Rocky shores now so sorely bruise these naked feet
    I wonder if ever again, love we shall meet.

    Across watery divide, this truth I confide
    I then, so in love had dismissed your darker side;
    now the tormenting night-ghosts of what might have been
    curse, happily point out you were never my friend.

    Rocky shores now so sorely bruise these naked feet
    I wonder if ever again, love we shall meet.

    With angry waves stirring up bleached bones in that brine
    this demolished grieving soul, screams out please be mine;
    in vivid dreams heart tragically cries your name
    knowing no mercy comes, sorrows always remain.

    Rocky shores now so sorely bruise these naked feet
    I wonder if ever again, love we shall meet.

    Rhyme- *Sad and Dark*, ( Dreams Remembered, Sorrows That Ache)


    Note- Oft from a dream remembered, I find fodder to compose.
    in this case the dream was based upon a real life loss love from my youth.
    Sometimes the pain and sorrows are too great and instead of writing to present here - I bury it deeper, while hoping it magically disappears.
    Never works but often we repeat in hope that some relief be granted.
    Having now written this piece, perhaps such relief shall be given..

    Redbone, A Mighty Blow Given Night That You Died


    He a mighty dog, grandpa just called him Redbone
    As big as a hog, he weighed in over six stone.
    Part black bear and part mutt, his growl scared one and all
    Hellfire in his gut, Pap would bear hunt him each Fall.

    Redbone, a mighty blow given night that you died.
    One young lad, went out into the dark woods and cried.

    As a pup Redbone was as beauty to behold
    Such as never before loved by a six year old.
    Soon red coat shining, he became muscle and bone
    That is why our Ole Pap came to name him Redbone.

    Redbone, a mighty blow given night that you died.
    One young lad, went out into the dark woods and cried.

    Eight years flew on by and Redbone was loved by all
    Eigth season he was slower to come when we call.
    Ole Pap call for first morn's hunt and heard not a bark
    Redbone only growled showing his teeth like a shark.

    Redbone, a mighty blow given night that you died
    One young lad, went out into the dark woods and cried.

    Ole Pap shot back, last bear hunt tore you up a bit
    Then his chew of tobacco, oft front porch he spit.
    Redbone just lay there, Ole Pap said, old friend just rest
    You have been a fine hunting dog, the very best.

    Redbone, a mighty blow given night that you died.
    One young lad, went out into the dark woods and cried.

    Next night midnight moon rose, we heard a moaning yelp
    Our old faithful friend, our Redbone's last call for help.
    Ole Pap went out, came back in with sad ashen face
    He said, Redbone is gone, friend we can not replace.

    Redbone, a mighty blow given night that you died.
    One young lad, went out into the dark woods and cried.

    The Path Became Bloody, The Door Forever Was Shut, Part One

    First Note--

    R.J. Lindley,
    March 3rd, 1976
    Dark Rhyme(The Beast and its faithful allies)-Part One

    What ails man, lives deep inside

    festering in his arrogant pride,
    Like a seedling forever up-torn
    blackness in him thus born,
    Woe to thee, that human breath take
    for earth's black lust thee partakes
    As Poe saw, the Raven foretells,
    human flesh absorbs many hells
    And black hearts answer those calls
    tho' to hide man builds many walls.
    [B]
    The Path Became Bloody, The Door Forever Was Shut
    (Part One)


    I saw the beast, drew my trusty sword
    The crowd was there, a ghastly little horde
    Devoid of dawn and reeking of decay
    allowing indifference to hold greatest sway.

    With a mighty blow, the beast was then cut
    The path became bloody, the door forever was shut.

    I saw the beast, its eyes throwing flames
    The crowd was there, playing childish games
    Beast roared and threw a vicious claw
    Crowd applauded it, they one and all.

    With a mighty blow, the beast was then cut
    The path became bloody, the door forever was shut.

    I saw beast, its fangs showed through its smile
    The crowd was there, with lust and usual guile
    Crying with hearts, black and frozen as ice
    Shouting kill the man, saying it thrice.

    With a mighty blow, the beast was then cut
    The path became bloody, the door forever was shut.

    I saw the beast, its flaming tail hit my head
    The crowd was there, laughed the more I bled
    Taken aback, my courage ate the mighty blow
    Crowd screamed out, more blood for the show.

    With a mighty blow, the beast was then cut
    The path became bloody, the door forever was shut.

    I saw the beast, slashing out in agonizing pain
    The crowd was there, shouting man can not win again
    With final blow, my sword pierced its black heart
    The crowd rushed forth seeking to rip me apart.

    With a mighty blow, new beast was then cut
    The path became bloody, the door forever was shut.

    Dark Rhyme(The Beast and its faithful allies)


    What ails man, lives deep inside

    alone can not purge, tho' many have tried,



    eating flesh and blood from dust risen,
    infinite black holding soul in its prison,
    with fanged teeth and ever deep famished bites,
    seeking to betray hope and heavenly sights,
    as man walks in darkness and cries his woes,
    it gnaws away at decaying fingers and toes,
    forever hidden from gift of renewing light
    ancient ghastly beast sworn to ever fight.
    The Path Became Bloody, The Door Forever Was Shut
    (Part Two)



    Again, new beast has risen, as was before
    Famished, seeking its first meal, blood and gore
    With my sword heavy and soaked deep bloody red
    I slash at is massive scaled body instead.

    Could this monster, a flesh and blood mortal withstand.
    Yet one must, to save our families, homes, our lands.

    Rebirth had given it size and armored scales
    New behemoth fired from crowd's hate and angry wails
    Alas! This giant, its strength taxed my courage hard
    Tho' a hardened warrior bred, my soul was a bard.

    Could this monster, a flesh and blood mortal withstand.
    Yet one must, to save our families, homes, our lands.

    Steeping back, I saw its armored hide its great girth
    Tho' fearful I swear to win, giving all my worth
    Mind now hampered by fear, its defeating powers
    I fought savage beast, growing weaker each new hour

    Could this monster, a flesh and blood mortal withstand.
    Yet one must, to save our families, homes, our lands.

    Alas! Losing hope, day and night have now flown on past
    Weary, courage waning, for I fear each blow my last
    Only prayers have sustained courage, my strength and heart
    Should I fail, my body would be ripped apart

    Could this monster, a flesh and blood mortal withstand.
    Yet one must, to save our families, homes, our lands.

    From heavens above a thunderclap struck the ground
    in its debris, new sword and glowing armor I found
    Saving grace delivered to this worn, weary soul
    Renewing hope's powers and faith to reach my goal

    Could this monster, a flesh and blood mortal withstand.
    Yet one must, to save our families, homes, our lands.
