Bleach

Invisible reels,

The staggering

Myth.

Gone

Beyond

A recognizable

Face,

Dampened sounds

Sunken by

Weighted moonlight.

Crushed to

Impervious

Hymns

Deadening

Shrouded pews.

Tears a

Seal

To close former

Pictures,

Silk rivers

Masquerading

Along broken

Sunlight

Bleaching

Small stained glass

Worlds.

Caustic Nightmares

How I’ve felt when the chain

Is undone,

Then linked to the Other.

 

She floats through the

Mind’s backdrop,

A disturbing vision.

 

What he’ll say to cut me off,

The anger stirring.

 

I’ll sigh in regret,

Pinned to my death’s

Wish.

 

How the days will

Prolong themselves,

Filtered into caustic

Nightmares.
