the sword swallower

in between dreams as the straight jacket loosened and the sore throat eased
magic was sung every morning on the tip of the tongue death was yawning
caste on a battlefield from the start there was something wrong in his heart
saved or condemned palm reading in silence endless talking of revenge
needless to say chance walked away faust is still looking for helen of troy
satanic panic it was music to his ears sympatico more than you`ll ever know
lost in emptyness a king of cards moved backwards in time dematerialising
voices from the beyond with fire in their throats call out swallowing the sun
awakened by strangers forever in love between ourselves blood streams run
immune to all dangers out of control in a haze pour more oil into the blaze
inside the void it was hard to avoid phantoms of love sinking from above
frozen spirits wild at heart yearn for touch floating away in every direction
a fire eater is tongue tied a million roads to nowhere with no place to hide
in supernatural realms old spells from the great burning turn and lament
for those in tragic torment episodic a pineapple cabaret in total dismay
psychic surgery for the side show freak brushed aside and unable to speak
sympathetic magic on the mountains of madness beyond the walls of sleep
a lurking fear from the craft of love awakened damned and visibly forsaken

hat manipulation and escapology of the soul
harry houdini meets h.p.lovecraft
maybe in byzantium maybe in karnak
while love wanders the never regions
