Under the glow
Of a violet night
The nightmare flow
Of a violent smite
The burning of
The distant fray
Where ancient night –

Ghosting its sight
Bathing in brilliance

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

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.

Define broken time shapes
Crashing –
