Fusing Fickle Fantasies

Updated on June 27, 2017

I wake with dawn
dazed and disoriented
my morning glory heaves
like Mjollnir itself
'cept made out of lead

with much effort
I restrain the urge
pick myself up
lest endure the worst
an aftereffect like Dirge

as I then allow it to settle
I fix myself a warm kettle
and begin to pen a poem
that I urge you not to belittle

Dreams connecting on a river of lust
life's aura flickering on endlessly
dazed are the ones who walk on through
to the otherside that holds fire and water

the abstraction of a void so seductive
seventh heaven calls with open arms
blind and mad yet penitent till death
this hungry heart will never be fed

our friend humility walks without fear
sister wisdom seeks out brother courage
a lament still yearns in the abyss
far far from the reaches of my soul

surely that deserved a prize
thought the proud and mighty I
yet had I let loose before
Id have naught but sigh
