Seething stars through bloodshot eyes
In silent scenes of death
Races, violently, burning
For a never want of rest

Gaming, future, systems
Like a treasure found for me
I realize that returning
Is a spot I cannot see

I mention, saying, never, known
In a heart that doesn’t exist
As destiny leans on through
And puts its end to this.

By brute force

Detracts, from a vision
Of a designed,
Streamed source.

Its outside –
Its inside, reflects delay

As it links
Its prescient present –
Within a vision, on full display.

a loss of place
a purposed thread
a brightened black
a dust of red

a distant towards
a splash of ink
a bright forever
a touch of blink

a loss of soul
a dark of mind
a now awake
a will to find.
