Eden, Exiled

Don’t stare too long Into the light Don’t scar those beautiful eyes White Knowledge Carves a bloodied trail – There’s venom In the holy grail. Truths discarded, Fall in shards And rake their way Down fragile arms Hanging onto Empty hopes Hanging down From homemade ropes Brittle cynics Adorn the void – Vacant – Wanderlust […]

Abyssalis

Do you lie awake And wonder? Sempiternal oceans Behind closed eyes Expanding Moulding Melting.

Liberate

The things that words Can’t seem to say The feelings That encapsulate Broken down Lost In vowels Primal screams Manic howls Vocalized Weaponry Fails to describe Purgatory A Linguistic cage That can’t express The exquisite pain Of mortal distress Left Brain thought Leads astray The creative force Of right brain haze It’s a futile game […]
