Author's Note:
Mind, this is nothing new. Some of you may remember these words, and what brought them forth. I have spun and woven through this tapestry once, now I am free to trample it into the dust and from its remains bring you new delights. Enjoy!

"O Mystic, blind one
Your words assaulted
For all was asunder 'n
That implied screaming
Juxtaposed history
To fasten the tapestry
Squall days carnivorously peaking
Souls for safekeeping"

Never will we fear to tread
On serendipity, with seamless smiles
Spreading the panic of youth
Defying as Gods have importuned
Preferring unreality to stark truth
Ignorance flayed, abased at our roots...

Mistaken ambitions, the ambivalent friction
Of bodies marked by consequence for ignition

"Rock bottom is not
A place to stand
But it's a start
So we'd get back up
With hope in our hearts"

Here, nothing remains to hold us back
Disassociated, not quite exigently stacked
As the many penitent voices seemed to lack
Emotional bulkheads to absorb ferocious flak
Whatever cold I lack that'd stay an attack
Head back, fangs shimmering through the black

Forsaken tradition, the accipient affliction
Of minds forked via acquiescence not volition

"O Gifted, time was
Your will uplifted
For all was serene 'n
That implied meaning
Transposed vainglory
To unpin the tapestry
Always and in all ways seeking
Threads for the reaping"

Forever is a very long time, especially towards the end
An anfractuous journey, rife with trials
Would that it lasted, battlescars & proof
Denying our consent to be dragooned
Abdicating fists for an envenomed tooth
Breviloquent violence to end all disputes

Awaken'd cognition, the equivalent condition
Of spirits sparked to candescence in petition

For some reason you remind me of an angry "Homer"
not Homer Simpson but that old cagey blind guy or Prometheus railing away at the Gods.

your poetry has a grandiosity that has an agelessness to it- breathtaking poetry ..

After reading this I feel like taking an ax to Zeus's head- So happy that you're back ..
