ravenous

eating flesh
from inside out
finding pathways
to hidden truths
memories of the future
pasts bound by youth
ancient voices chanting prayers
echoe round the pyre
songs of hope
discordant vows
seek refuge in desire
marbled steps to Avalon
rot in willing suffocation
restless souls of wanderers
bathed in supplication
wings of phantoms
caress the moon
rythmic calls to feast
fly into that velvet night
embrace the waiting beast
exhaling brittle ashen bones
on clouds of stolen breaths
lost in sacred prophecies
that speak of perfect deaths

    Such a beautifully written parable..
    Rich in imagery
    Divinely coded
    With each word measured as though each letter dripped off your tongue in a perfect order.

  • i feel like someone just poured thick honey over my brain.. and it’s starting to make it’s way to my pleasure zones… in other words.. thank you for the beautiful words……b

    What joy to see your words grace these pages again, dear heart – and what a come back piece! Your imagery is the stuff of myth and of esoterica and that is especially true of the last few lines which leave me absolutely breathless in wonder at the ease with which you apply such profound images to the lesson you share…“exhaling brittle ashen bones on clouds of stolen breaths…” Incredibly moving dearest Butch – I am left with just a little sense of unease here, of sadness and just a little bit of fear. But I adore it as I do all that you do! xox

    isn’t that life as we know it dear heart? thank you for always, always being my biggest fan.. and i know.. it’s my turn to write…….. love you……b
