L is for the way I LOVE you

O is for the ONE I need

G is for how GREAT we are

A is for an ATLAS mapping our love

N is for you NEAR me



 By “Ayana Kanosis”

I reach out and touch
Only to grab air
I miss him so much
But he is not there
He resides not in the cave of sorrow
Nor can I find him by Crystal Tears
I guess our time was borrowed
Without him I am consumed with fear
I search lovingly behind the drapes
I fly out and scan the lake
I hold the bitterness like sour grapes
And wonder if he knows how my heart aches

The Shadow I Adore

By “Ayana Kanosis”


Wrapped in your arms

Begged, reveal yourself to me

I don’t wish to lose you

By waking up you see

I miss you when I wake

Longing to battle with you again

I need you beside me

Without you I can’t win

Who are you my shadow?

You deny your identity

But I know you, my warrior

You’re always here with me

Don’t hid your face from me

You are worthy of much more

Let me see you my darling

The shadow I adore

My Offering     

By “Ayana Kanosis” 


Take my bloody heart

Tear my body apart

I lived for you

I will die in you

This is my wretched life

And I am not the wife

I expected to be

I wonder if you see

My deepest desires

Feel the burning fires

That is my bleeding arm

Watch the cut no harm

This is my devotion

My blood in motion

You are my sun and moon

My shadow in the noon

And here I am at your altar

To give you my offer

My ultimate sacrifice

You are my ultimate vice

I made you into my lord

And I worshiped you with my word

I hold this bleeding heart

Taking it you tear it apart

You hated me so much

Yet you longed for my touch

Now have me forever

For the dead can’t move, ever

And that I give to you

My one love so untrue
