Ridges, of emission
Within a remnant, of fate
Becomes faint,
And elusive,
As a timeless free, gate.

Reflections, out of history
Are disturbed –
From belief

Releasing, into present
A measured Cepheid –

Wing like winds
Wonder, and glide
Whispering, wishes
Through its wonderland –

Distortions of space
And mass masking strides
Reset how they trace
Their molecular –
Spiral tides.

Intriguing, silhouettes
Of shadow, pirouettes
Cold themes
By exposing,
Feared dreams
Through the darkness
Of its silent

Forever dreams,
Of distant beams
Riding away,
Over slow decay

We know not,
The parting air

Of our despair
Of a silent sigh
And quiet –
Slow goodbye.

Driving your heart
Right through your soul
Rewrites your true will
Through command –
For control.

twilight of milky sky’s,
after massive stars, in spark
may ever after sadness say farewell
as I depart
for throughout time and fractured space
the epic battles bear me far
I pray to see my masters face
as I depart for yonder bar.

O reflection,
The great purple witch rides this night
Untrusting, through prow or strength
Without safety of flight
For by glance, by wicked snare
Lies the darkend smile, of Rigel’s glare.

I am energies
For the void, not yet formed
Through degenerate emission

We have built a jewel
A monument of color
Facing a blackness, forever tomb

So I call these filaments
A mark of remembrance
Where the unfaithful,

Watch the redHa shine
Broken – into newborn life
In the memory, of death.
