purple skies are calling.

rose blush skies

fading into a mauve daydream

and she is on a journey between

an orchid afternoon,

and a lavender evening,

but this hush is mulberry

tangled up in aubergine,

the perfect shade to unveil

her latest spell

—

she is a moon gypsy

and she speaks in shades

of violet magic

– ashley jane

we rise on haunted nights.

ghostly whispers move

under a voodoo blood moon,

a slow-shimmer-slink

of air over bone,

their dark love calling us home,

cosmic cadavers

with claws that sink deep,

burning nerves

and setting veins on fire

we stand on the cusp of shadows,

slowly disappearing into the ether,

our souls chained to a sinking sun

– ashley jane

hope stained constellations.

shine-bright-shimmer,
a sharp cut of light ricocheting
off chandeliers of crystal ice,
we follow its warning,
shards of frosted ink
scrawled across the sky,
foreboding written out
in this holy silence
telling of how darkness still lingers
in the hallows from where we came
hope is fleeting,
but we will not turn back
the stars are our lighthouse,
and they will bring us through
– Ashley Jane

Love, Lies, and Lullabies is a collection of poetry about relationships and the emotions that come with them. It is written for the lovers and the liars, the broken and the mended, the hardened hearts and the soft souls who lie and tell everyone that they are fine. Each chapter is filled with poems that detail the ups and downs of life and love, of pain and joy, of losing and finding yourself again.

Please check it out, review it, let me know what you think.
