Of innocence lost

Of innocence lost
6 January 2022

Courtesy Dorinda Duclos
Her skin felt a burn
A thousand suns flared within
Ancient tattoos writhed

Blisters wrote on skin
a story of a lifetime
wrapped within gray folds

Darkness was conquered
The old adage came to light
New Order commenced

A flash of moonlight
Illuminated her eyes
Sun’s flames wrestled moon

Tired men kept watch
The battle was an emblem
Olden moon beat sun

Sun flickered dying
The children came to New Age
of innocence lost

Reading of the poem:
ILLENIUM - Crawl Outta Love (feat. Annika Wells)

  1. Through mere assonances
    I’ll never decipher
    The music of the spheres

    Purity, no. but profanity, yes

    So tiny a veil
    separate sanity from madness
