With each passing moment
Life becomes more narrow
Like the fleeting song
Of a desperate sparrow

With outstretched wings
Beneath the rocks
Crushed by the weight
Of eternal moss

Enroaching mold that forms within
Enveloping damp and sullen skin

Layers beyond belief
Dreams beyond our reach
Sifting, settling, remaining
Drifting, resting, decaying

Cold loss in wretched hands
Folded arms beneath the sand

life in birth
Death to earth

Affliction in collapsed time
Played endlessly beneath the pines
The song of disease
gifted to the weak

In mind and body
In spirit and soul
Corrupted it spreads
And swallows us whole

The gift of life
Banished by strife
clouds of deceit
Under our feet

A silent loud breath
A wandering tear
All gone in a moment
Along with all fear

Collapse
Upon the marrow of broken life
Resting in timeless space
With heart exposed in frail twilight
A decayed temple grasping tightly one final night

A Vast expanse of harrowing abyss
Nestling amongst the dying memories
Between the wanton emissary of desire
And the never-ending past... clouded and black

Decrepit and useless
torn limb from naked limb
Resounding echoes of torment
Forms from within

Coldness from years of deceit
Discomfort embittered in tongues of flame
Where ability lies within a name

Bold natured, Insatiable, immense-
Heart rending, mind bending, rest
Never ending, expunging, death.

Dilating entropic utopia
As delirium tremors from within
A beckoning madness
Amongst glass-covered layers
Secluded and repressed

Missionary recursion beset in birth
A thought: torn page from lifeless page
Flesh delighted in mindless mirth
Concocted and depreciating with age

Encroaching mist of dying days
Long since passed-
The times of beauty

Dreams pass on by
Streams of blissful-crimson skies
Each day bids a silent farewell
As the passage closes for all

As we lie down in the river
Baptised in icy tears,
The benign winter shadows
Expunge all our fears

As the water becomes one with the sky
We dream for an eternity
And silently die
As you caustically turn 'round
hearing the harsh stenciled sound
of rudimentary laughter beckoning the doubt
But the laughter now ceased
your clothes seem but creased
and the world is full of faults

When nothing is right
not quite worth its price,
you can Look to the sky ,
with bloodshot blue eyes
and see a world which-
untouched by betrayal-
is now gleaming , glistening
with overturned freedom.

It's impounding loud stomp
begins to thump on the seat of your heart
Slowly yet rampant,
The seed is now set -
but your head remains stupidly stagnant.

The vastness overtakes all fears
your thoughts, and all of your lies-
that lay dormant for many long years
Without reason, it bows down to cry

The rain falls down, extinguishing the dormant thought
The sky has no furnishing no brain and no doubt
without a main processor, it turns you to mist
and you are but feeble, and follow the trist


The amorphous empowered substance
envelops and welcomes with bliss
The new guest of honor
Gone with a hiss.

deforestation of morality
The sapling of borders
Growing with rapid expanse

The mist has broken the fetters
And the harlequin stance
That society has lavished
The dying romance

what tied us together?
what unison trust?
now blugeoned with maltreatment
forming a gust

These clouds have a destination
Movement lacking hesitation
The pulse of life - the kindle of blood
Hidden by strife, and emerging with flood

This sudden resurgence, becomest
This undeniable flame, Burneth (lol)

One that Can turn your lips to dust-
which can beckon the question
Should you pretend or surrender
Or face the world of rust

Cheer up my friend
This is the end
The end of Endings
and the start of mendings

Control your fear
and stay a while
whats next is next
try and muster one more smile
A loveless mind sworn to truth
A Beaten heart entwined with youth
The mass of bodies laid in ruins
Before the hopeful one:

yearning
Crying
Screaming
Dying

Broken truths in a mind so strong
Baptized among a lake of swans
Time snapped the neck of innocence
Spewing darkness now in recompense

Love: the pain and afterimage
Shallow and grave : concocted beauty
Life: the grand tour of suffering mounds
In ruins now, the asphyxiated child

Extinguished flame as we lost the dream
Nothing to gain, as we follow the stream
Lord of recursive doubts, a unending marriage
The lifelong passenger of a fallen carriage

Black and corroded - eternally fixated
An ancient vision of frozen terror
Empty as a mercurial ocean
Residing now within your dreams.

The crystal humming
The listless longing
The delirious tremors
The viscous dark cold bedding
That shakes your frame
Forming demons within
Mute upon release
Loveless and diseased

The vision is spreading
False hope is collapsing
Twisting in furious spite
A hurricane of feverish white

Collapsing my dreams
Invading all seams
That rooted me in my previous life
I remain demented in silence

abandoned...
As i await the promised hallucination
I undergo irreversible mental damnation
The lofty drone of the siren now comes
Wailing on with her broken song
As I pass mind and body into the Lethean dawn

Tomorrow was taken
I cannot awaken
I leave but the sigh
Of yesterday's child
At Journey's end by Heathenflame
At Journey's end
Awaken- grim light shining through
Yet quickly fades as the memories within
Return now, fated to your weary self

Childhood dreams crushed under heavy lines
Carved into your folded hands
Crafted thus- your fading life
Chasing after the fading light

No strength left inside, but raging emptiness
From all that has gone
Out of place...lost in dreams

Recurring repeating defeating
Child, children, man, laughter
Tears, trauma, mirror, darkness
Seclusion, weakness, shivering emptiness

Passion leads to weariness
Deep in slumber
Is your life over?
As you scream with mind in shambles
And reach out to your thoughts

Scratching and tearing up into the space before you
Yet your body does not move
Is this your passing tale, all you were meant to experience?
...
...Stillness, clouding sorrow, then respite. Left unanswered in the hush of night.
