In the grainy, dark hues
of a late spring twilight
a stillish peace so true,
you can hear a falling star.
As I walk the lonely lane,
full of rage and red disdain
Swordless rebellions can be
a very good thing indeed.
As gold shooting stars glide
across the breadth of sky.
I raise a glass to the creator,
whose mind put it all together.
Albeit but an insignificant speck
of atoms shooting through and
the wilding universal expanse,
a primordial soup served daily.
Committed, Rev 2
I laughed in their faces
as I committed to flight
within the dimmed night
of a vast swirling haze
sprinkled with delights.
Awaken a spirited grin
from a darkling gaze;
a chalice of warm gin
and unicorns danced.
We all recited a ditty,
"Race your dragonfly;
Grasp a shooting star;
Whisper to the Moon;
Dance with the Fairy."
Your Devil warms up
on the Summer's grill.
I forgot the bugle call
whilst dipping my quill
as I committed to flight;
a soulless zombied bite,
in the eve of a raucous,
contemptuous icy night.
An evening of fire, brimstone and desire;
walking with a torch to the Pulpit of Dark.
Book in hand, followers unite and stand;
preaching torrents by the burning sparks.
Mumbling to the Moon; a diabolical belief;
the devil reaches out to devour the devout.
Breathe into a cauldron, exhale in shadows;
crucible burns long gnarly twisted fingers.
Raise high to your deity; sky or far below.
A dark spirit rises, a tempted Watcher lingers
in an anointed dance of homicidal tendency,
lost within ethereal dreams of moon flowers.
Pity a bluish pig dancing in a velveteen sky;
praise the virtuous ones of a secreted Piety.
My skin is ice as the clock strikes midnight,
Now racing away lingeringly yours, gratified.
