Under the glow
Of a violet night
The nightmare flow
Of a violent smite
The burning of
The distant fray
Where ancient night –
Is now born,
Today.

Breaking its wavelength
Ghosting its sight
Bathing in brilliance
Is its moment, of might.

Falling in –
Spinning
Spiraling in trails of wonder

Felled, into my inner deep blackness
Measured in years of light
And in streams of conscious awakening

I’m pulled through time
An inescapable reality
Into a now –
Of ever present
Meaning.

A degradation signal
In a timescale shaking wave
Breaks its solar dominion
To cheat –
Its telemetry grave.

A thread of heavens woven cloth
Enraptured with its might
A misty red and soggy froth
Captures – it’s true fight.

Spread and splashed with flowing haste
Throughout its mystic night
It asks for nothing from its host
To brave – its present plight.

Into the blind
Into the nothing
That shows you –

Telescopic skyscapes
Flashing –
With rage

Define broken time shapes
Crashing –
Our stage.

Screams of nature
Howling with rage
Shaking in anger
In a teeming –
Rampage.
