Illusionals, Delusionals and them that Snore

Would that the night be silent...

the day also of much snoring...

unused to the night I am...

it is light to me...

walking through the fog...

a blanket to hide from the snorers...

I can hide no more...

would that the sun would break...

it is hid behind this land to come no more...

the people waller in what they would...

their poets dream and spin.


To those who follow suns in your sleep...

thinking in light but dreaming...

making ways that seem easy...

teaching things that do not satisfy...

casting shadows of light...

coming up with glory that can't be...

mighty find the mountains to whole up in...

the sword to their neck but will not change ways...

Why all the snoring?

Living in a world that cannot stand...

tossing and turning...

finding no rest...

afraid to wake though...

knowing the house has no windows to the sun...

knowing these things...

the dirt on hands unseen...

refusing to clean self nor immerse in water...

"a sprinkling is enough."...

Enough of that, snore on...

hear me whisper...

hissing in dreams.


to them that hide in ditches...

I walk by seeking a word...

knowing that you understand the world...

you forswear yourselves against the sun...

you say the moon which you understand is light enough....

I beg to differ...

long have I held my tongue...

no more...

The sun has been replaced with a fire...

your waste and squaller shall provide much fuel...

because you will not turn to the sun...

cleanse yourselves or your neighbor...

the fire will seek you out...

You can not run to waters...

other then the ones you will not enter...

they are all polluted...

black with that which will consume...

Enough of that...

don't pray to the earth...

it pleads against you to the sun...

because you will not see...

sleep well if you wish...

you may not wake up.


to those who were bathed in the sun...

you carried shades...

your eyes were strong...

you shaded them because you would not see...

you accepted the light...

it made you feel better then those in the dark...

you would not seek them though...

those of you who dwelt amongst shadows...

begin to turn away from the sun also...

Because the sun shone on you...

it shall be taken and held by one...

he shall shine it but with a focus...

he will cut from you your shades...

then you will see...

if not seeing you choose...

shall crawl into the darkness...

accepting the mark of the accursed.
