The writings of Hunter Coch


Paint and Poem

Desire is an

Awakening of the soul,

Evidence of life.

Summoned by the serafim

Desire is the dark muse.

Desire is death

A last grasp at living life,

A voice from beyond.

Desire is dementia,

A forgetful waking dream.

Desire calls out

To the artists and dreamers,

Divine seduction.

Like the Sirens of myth, but

Feeding on paint and poem.


Secret Stories


Within sacred halls

Are secrets buried by time.


Who would wake the dead?

Who would speak of stories lost?


But the light will shine one day.


The tales will be told

Of deeds known only to dust.


Poems of sorrow,

Poems of love and family


All will rise from deep within

And sing of what once was lost.
