Swallow the Horizon

All of humanity begins and ends feeling only desire We want for food, shelter, water, crawling in the mire We grope in endless black clinging to each other Hoping for comfort only when not killing one another Some refuse the abyss in favor of hard upward ascent While others disbelieving in peaks elect for eternalContinue reading “Swallow the Horizon”

The stars speak

I looked up into the night’s sky to derive meaning I studied the constellations to divine any gleaning They answered back in cold indifference I was left an infinite cosmic vociferance Nothing but my lung’s breath ascending before me Vaporous fleeting in a prophetic and descending reverie The dots of light in the sky hintContinue reading “The stars speak”

Dead On Arrival

I smiled as my blood poured out of me The wounds gushing forth life effortlessly The priest frantically sewing me together Neverminding my body now light as a feather My soul slowly leaving as the light of my eyes dies I found the death’s truths easier to bear than life’s lies So I gave upContinue reading “Dead On Arrival”

NINTH CIRCLE

We are all in the Ninth Circle. The fat and flabby Satan, that devil of old Beats his leathery wings of decrepitude Summoning such a freezing blast of wind Not even the wildest of fires within the heart can withstand. Humanity together as one cohesive disease We wallow in our own filth to the noxiousContinue reading “NINTH CIRCLE”

The Future Was Too Late

Would that the world’s weariness would cease That life would be left to herself in silent peace Ne’er a day goes by without the scream of death Ne’er an hour when we can’t feel it’s hot breath In what book does a spell lay to end this pain? Bearded men searched the centuries all inContinue reading “The Future Was Too Late”

Apotheosis

I knew from the moment I darkened the doorway I found my purpose for being. For God or the devil who can say? But my vision went red and I was all-seeing. The churches will shatter at the foundations and the temples will fall. I will be there to watch the masses flee in terror,Continue reading “Apotheosis”

Lazarus

Lying dead awake in the cold seclusion of the tomb The perverse inverse of the innocence in the womb How long has it been, Lord? How much more time can I afford? Didn’t I deny you when I was living my life in times past? When the faith of my fathers was considered only lastContinue reading “Lazarus”

TELOS

“I can feel the rhythm of the hooves in my heart. Beating like war drums steadily guiding me on. The horse’s galloping is my lullaby throughout this hostile wood. Fog’s rising mist bathes the leaves and muddy soil beneath my beast. Darkened woods with the chill of a pale and anemic daylight envelope my existence.Continue reading “TELOS”

Double Helix

How long has it been, love? My heart cries “too long!” My head sighs “not long enough.” Is everything perfect for you now? Have all the pieces fallen into place? Yeah, me either. You seem disappointed in me. You thought by now I’d be “free.” Free of the archaic superstition. Taking up rank with theContinue reading “Double Helix”
