Rewinding the clocks

Tick me strikes

Clock me from afar

Withered hands

Grasping Time

Gone though we have come this far

Ending in blind war


You paint me

In feathers and tar

The joke spent

The dream dreamt

I have no reason to sleep

Eyes express dissent


Blazing rays

Ignite fading scar

Is this all

That we are

The eyelids scorching now weep

For more we were meant


You raised me

In black chains kingdom

The mind stilled


Paper joys and lies distilled

Like venom of dark


Hidden spark

A love shining bright

Heart’s delight

Out of sight

Ringing through my brittle night

Cradle for the right


Hark now hear

The oncoming rust

Red powder

Speaks louder

Voices nearer to the crust

The rumble now clear


Nurtured talks

My flailing embers

Bringing flame

To my name

Sacrifice the worthy’s fame

Rewinding the clocks


Reading of the poem:

War – Poets of the Fall

Dreaming Wide Awake – Poets of the Fall

Locking up the Sun – Poets of the Fall

Choice Millionaire – Poets of the Fall

Cradled in Love – Poets of the Fall

Carnival of Rust – Poets of the Fall

Rebirth – Poets of the Fall
