Torchlight Of Murder 2:

(Rise of the Grace)

 

Six months of quiet dreams,

lying awake in the bed of a new lover.

Haunted by the Lady Grace,

a ship wreck of tales and murder.

 

Looming thoughts on a sunny day,

down to the cold parlor.

Studying the log book,

a cold ray of desperation from it.

 

Staring at old diagrams and photos,

a luxury ship built twenty years ago.

Found in the Cape Cod Bay abandoned,

towed to a federal shipyard.

 

Reading a blood stained page,

ink swirled in confusion and a hurried rush.

Deciphering the message in parts,

closed the brown leather cover.

Sipping on Luke warm coffee,

inhaling cigarette smoke.

 

Gathering my fragmented thoughts,

watching the silent rain outside.

Standing by the window,

searching deeply in my spirit.

 

Disappearing into the shipyard,

a violent cold day on my back.

Staring at the Lady Grace,

listening to the low hum of her anguish,

my metallic footsteps echo loudly.

Like a heart beat in a movie.

 

Exploring lower decks,

the walls rusting and full of holes.

Electrical wires hanging down,

puddles of water scattered,

a wispy breeze from the hallway.

A soft glow of the lantern,

decorating the horror with attention.

 

“Tides of fate are not for those who live,

shackled souls to the epic gates of perdition.

We come to release ancient dreams upon the world”,

Scribbled on a mirror in a bathroom.
