Alistair's Prayer

clinging to changes owed in
debt solely for him;
the unseen knight waiting
for the moment to ride

sprung by anyone else
attempting to surpass his scars
would volunteer licked wounds
for the addiction of tasting

clouded blue,
distract me from fear of the new
sink, sink, sink me down in my welcoming trance
drown my last breath in cold-skinned arms
let my fingertips glide the imaginable corpse against the
nakedness of truth and reality
make my heart uncatchable and
discovered multiple times by you

planting,
nourishing future
bury past’s shovel and dirt,
never let responsibility grow

trespass against me
I will allow you to pass the gates
pull me into my abyss I created for
myself

Thirsty Cravings

soft sounds stir the constraints of
breathing red veins difference
blurring vision to impair
judgment’s fevering presence

the carelessness of the mind
brought by rose colored glasses
covering eyes once seen
passed reality masses

spilling city lights reveal
vicious giants sound mocking
each victim footstep taken
constantly pacing, stalking

propaganda only alludes
lonely, ant farm fences low
elevating foreign sins
past ocean nonsense for flow

old days hide homeland features
disguising skeleton doors
opened by unknown creatures
and preparing coddled moors

bear in mind, hence do not mind
minding is a foolish game
possessing a blue ribbon
of misunderstanding shame

Epoch

by the crumbs of desperate times
the dawn of leaking spirits approaches
unfolding creations of new evolution and
bracing itself against excuses of
distant relatives lost in time
over matter that didn’t matter

forget the past
remember the future
circle life now seen
break free the environment
containing ungraspable imaginations
belonging in a cage

destroy fear surrounding mortality
loathing in a forbidden destiny
capturing all wants to say
eyes wide to a carnival of the unknown
ride the ride with no tracks
embrace your living
