Firm in its grasp
The monster rages, again
Lurking inside
The formless darkness, within.

It’s never quite silent,
And never quite sound,
It’s always just lurking
To drag us right down.

It’s just so overwhelming
As we can barely breathe,
Fighting for nothing,
With no possible reprieve.

So the monster, its got us
We are deep, in its clutch
We try, to break free
But are locked, by its touch.

Roar & shake –
Fires in the air
Angry clouds so deep

Meek, in its perilous path
Keeping course –
In the valley of unique.

The perilous path given –
In colored rivers of sky
Broken cliffs and springing streaks

Onto the bleached, sprayed relief
Where raging visions –

Crossing our constants
And the transforming
Of sky

Whispers its wisdom –
As a solution
To why.

Arcs of confusion
In colors, arise

Breaking seclusion
From the clearest –
Of skies.

Under the glow
Of violet night
The nightmare flow
Of a violent smite

The burning of
A 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 –
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 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.
