John B Sep 11
Unto Caesar what is Caesar's
Give the devil his due
As above so below
If not by us then who
John B Jun 25
Shoes in hand
Ready to go check the mail
I tried to put keys on my feet
My eyes crossed
Vission blurred and head spinning
I reeled back in my seat
I groped for the arms
I figured "oh that's a bit strange"
I was ready to think only of the keys
I was ready to take on tunnel vision
To avoid the terror of what I'd glimpsed

Last night I walked into the wall
I had turned out the light in my room
Standing on my phone in the dark
For however long it takes
To finish conversations
Turn on some music
Forget orientation

The light from my blinds
In the tired of my mind
Cast on the wall a line
That reminded me of home
Just a step and I'd be there
Must have remember where I'd been
My nose struck textured sheetrock
"What stoped me?"
The usless part of me retorts
Image of the thermostat burned
Itching in my periphery
Probobly Indigestion...

Crazy?
Maybe, or at least so you say to me
Hazy days phase me?
You've got a ***** loose not me.

Drugs?
Sure, my baseline state is baked
Do I struggle to concentrate?
My visions another vibration yet

shrugs
Where others quest in dreams
I've long allready been
Where acid whispers plans
Who asks just where they began
When mushroom people walk with you
Do you ask them?
Who they're walking with too?

****.
No, I walk with the vision.
I speak with the venom
Cuz I fear no evil
Not in past or in present
why do you?
Are you some kinda fool?
Don't imply an insult, that's foolish.

"Demons can't stand scorn"
Paraphrased from CSL in the preface to Screwtape Letters

Were you a fool?

I dreamed I was pined under a table

Fighting a daemon who had taken my brothers cat

A fleeting moment of sanity struck me and I rebuked it

"In the name of Jesus" in jest

So taken aback it stopped in it's tracks without breath to laugh

I watched it react, retract, and redact

From combat to convent

In mind and in body

The tables had turned

"In the name of the almighty then?" Who's names I've long known

Trying to be modest a feint of a smile I'd shown

With prey before me my heart is quick to be hotted, though

It's eyes locked with with mine in a bleak stare, it nodded...

A visible aura of evil passed from the creature

And If its color was any indication

The demon wasn't all that bad
None the less, my household is off limits, pets included...

lifted my phone with purpose

Brought my eyes to focus

Searched my mind for context

Gawked blankly at my phone

A long awaited meeting set the mood for a dream

Only intrupted by a piercing scream

I never could place how that came to be

Waking up again without you beside me

We walked on stardust and enchanted the sky

Nothing quite as bright as the sparkle in your eyes

Supose that maybe why I never realized

That sparkle was a tear and you were trying not to cry

Now I see it clearly as it's spelled out on the floor

Her blood spilled in cursive

"I don't love you anymore"

I'd act as your maypole
An utterance to stir your soul
Meh day at your whims
Say we have gone riding into the echos even throughout the lowlands

The minstrels bello and promenade
Causing youths to parody
Meh day at your whims
Say we have gone riding into the echos even throughout the lowlands

Within and surrounding the loch
Monoliths reach from the heavens and take root
A parcel yet afore we arrive to bare witness
Honest decades passed now we shall bare witness with joy
In A day meh paramour our party will show and you will know we have arrived at your call

I will burn it into meh mind
The energy of your shape across the horizon
And the heavens beyond
Say we have gone riding into the echos even throughout the lowlands

Within and surrounding the loch
Monoliths reach from the heavens and take root
A parcel yet afore we arrive to bare witness
Honest decades passed now we shall bare witness with joy
In A day mah paramore our party will show and you will know we have arrived at your call

Flowing with nimbus a bird of pray scours midgaurd
Caught in torrents a mariner catches fleeting glimpses of midgaurd
Bird of prey stiring air the torrents becomes untenable

Inch toward shore and grasp it to understand it's only soil
With the potential of our end millenarian revelations come within our grasp
However faced with dread nightmares and the vastness of time

I'd act as your maypole
An utterance to stir your soul
I'd act as your maypole
An utterance to stir your soul

Within and surrounding the loch
Monoliths reach from the heavens and take root
A parcel yet afore we arrive to bare witness

I'd act as your maypole
An utterance to stir your soul
Meh day at your whims
Say we have gone riding into the echos even throughout the lowlands
Within and surrounding the loch
Monoliths reach from the heavens and take root
A parcel yet afore we arrive to bare witness
Honest decades passed now we shall bare witness with joy
In A day meh paramour our party will show and you will know we have arrived at your call
Yes
