. . . Love Dying With Fog

Source

Feasting unbridled upon barbed wire lies
Watching our ravens screaming faith in flight.
I watch as she drifts as sand in a muted beach
Her touch is growing colder, painfully out of reach.

Our eyes clinch a lightning glance
She arches her smile and weakens my stance.
Winds blow softly, silently, sure
She is fading, eating a love perfect and pure.

Raptured earthquakes in strings of light
Mighty hands fail at infantile might.
Mens' mouths cry a covered plea
Mercy on her eyelids, dust over me.

Frozen stares locking icy rage
Elderly pupils slowly tear open *it's age.
Foolish tunes of jesters galore
Sipping her tears on bloody floors.

Nature with all of her muse
Tries in vain to hide the abuse.
Rocks crack on innocent hills
I bow my head to mortician's mill.

She's but a mist as she moves to and fro
Step by step I remember that glow.
Lightning princess and dungeons clean
Enter my soul in darkness serene.

*it's page is possibly construed as Death's list of mankind's names.

    Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.
