Embracing the End

Embracing the End

Last Summer

I discovered ways

To speak love

Between lines

Weaving melodies and word

Reinventing speech

 

Time runner

I haggled with death

Won over

With a kiss

Many a promise to miss

With scarce borrowed time

 

All things start

Within promises

And die slow

Within breath

Woven with threads of wonder

That run through bright life

 

All that starts

Also has an end

The story

Comes slowly

To a screeching grinding halt

As teeth clench sorrow

 

Gone morrow

Vainly sacrificed

A bet made

Like Dante

Alternate realities

Arrogant belief

 

Vanity lair

Tombstone of the fools

Seen future

Illusion

A game rigged in confusion

Carelessly rolled dice

 

It is done

Lay down the tired head

In cool lands

Where rivers

Speak of the peaceful feeling

Embracing the End

Swollen Polygon

My Heart shaped Geometry

On which side to draw

.

Numbers dance hidden

Chance law of art’s memory

Fear outcome curse fades

.

Loved ones’ blood flesh tears

Angry steel violence clinch

Evening rain, fragile fall

.

Women dancing star

Wash sadness from soldiers’ eyes

Stone faces missing

.

Invisible ones

Scream loud, torture unsaid sing

Own freedom bitter

Humble Pi curve Arc

Kingdoms cover in bell shape

Secluded valleys

.

Protect victories

King’s vanity broken works

Lost ancient city

.

Build Ocean’s Rainbows

Jerusalem’s lost Ark wind

April’s histories

.

Moon ruins footstep

Dried ambition dust prison

Desert life over

.

Stop man’s Dominions

Love fall’s million stars

Distant planet’s fog

All the promises

All the promises

burning 8

The hours still stand by

As space expands in morrow

Slate of time dilates

.

Crops burnt in corners

Lie idle remnants of past

When food was mundane

.

Eyes wide with glory

Mind quenched with victory’s thrill

You rule, King of dark

.

Corpses pile aflame

Memories of hearts that loved

In vanity died

.

Thrill of chase vanquished

Idle thoughts of loyalty

String of hearts like pearls

.

I believed a lie

Intoxicating promise

Of a brave New World
