The wind swept over the world.
The wind leapt over the fence and
out of the sea.

the wind whispered
into every ear,
hear it's coffin cacophonies

melodic misdirection.

The wind said
to suffocate before i
enter your home.

the wind said,
when i come,
drown. Never look up.
look into yourself they said,

but i am nothing inside,
my strength fails me,
my mind enslaves me,
i am my own enemy.

but in my cold nights,
a voice called.
the sun, said,
i watch over you,
the sun said,
don't i govern the night skies too?

the son. i meant,
the son. Mistaken for
no one,
for the poison,

when you are the breath
the breath
that evaporates the seas,
the breath
that suffocates the winds.

.... (to be continued?)
hi friends :D Im new here, kind of, good to meet you all!

Gone in the labyrinth
of dense words
is the thin golden clew
that is the salvation out
for the gathering of lost poets.
The thread doesn’t exit
to the center,
to meaning,
just a thick grove of forest
where they meander forever
in the definitions all around them,
each footfall erased in
the revision of those before.

As I sit upon the meadow,
a dreamlike world at ease,
the rushes, elms, and grasses,
caressed by lazy evening breeze.

The sunset glows on honeyed towers,
the gentle river flows behind,
if only this could last forever,
if only nothing preyed upon my mind.

But I know they're coming,
soon a rabble through the gate,
vicious thugs come to smite me,
and condemn me to my fate.

I spoke truth to power, yes I did,
but the power spat it back,
an explosion of indignance,
a hail of red hot flak.

I look upon my fire,
warming my cold hands,
As another battle comes,
to spill blood upon these lands.

I can hear them in the city,
a clatter of metal upon stone,
what a fool I was to offend,
the children on the throne.

They pour onto the meadow,
a crowd bigger than the past,
but I will not surrender,
I will fight on to the last.

They storm across the landscape,
a horde of spikes and mail,
it will take every ounce of my skill and luck,
to live to tell this tale.

The fire before me ebbs away,
but one ignites inside,
a growing inferno of resistance,
of necessity, and pride.

With a defiant grip, I draw my sword,
it's the end of sweet civility,
as careless feet trample-crunch,
through the embers of tranquillity.
I was greeted early by your oncoming storm
A whirlwind with a violent, turbulent swarm.

Through the power of spirit, we will end your suffering
Endless thoughts of chaos will cease their fluttering

I see you there; I know you're fighting
Beyond the walls, beyond the lightning.

I can't hold you right now, like I know I should be
But keep on fighting until I can bring you close to me

Our days will be golden; they can never be taken away
As soon as your souls collide, I promise, I'll make everything okay

There is a crater of eternal darkness now where the illumination of your beautiful smiles once triumphed.

Take me clear into mist and cotton.
Launch a rocket through heavens door.
What a rush to be perched from a bird's eye view
and see man's triumphs laid bare like toys.

Through history, we've chased the wind.
Forever grasping at fleeting breaths.
And now we've brought all of man's glory and sins
so much higher than where we began.

It is true we presume
When in darkness no light;
With thought no peace
And no peace with love.

Why do hearts melt
On an icey soul,
With indifference to caring
Selfish love is lifes troll.

One day pure bliss,
Warm joy over valleys;
Like ripe fruit scented kisses
Their end never foretold.

Another of twisted dead wood
Around a rotten apple.
Once bitten in haste
By passions of longing;
And motives of wanting.

In his law that we should
Strive to be loving and righteous .
We shall march through deep valleys;
Be a fleeting moment of
Great beauty and rage,
Shall we be brave enough;
To stamp our seal of love
On this timeline of old.

Define yourself in your own terms
Let triumph wash over you
Bask in the glow of your own definitions
Walk free surrounded in your own truth
One man walked on the moon
As one man learned to walk again
One woman sacrificed for a nation
As one woman became a citizen of her new home
A family of famous daredevils
And a family that got their son clean
Don't let others define your triumph
Be great
Act great
Revel in your accomplishments
And love your limits while breaking them
