Caliginous buried by the sword of valor

the current mirrors
my restless pacing
animal agitation
beneath my taut skin

face incognito
in the crypt of ripples replay
slow movement
entangling my miss-steps
guiding me
to the dark of skeletal recall

a jet black reflection
of a taunting vortex
guiding me
tempting me

oh to plunge to its murky depths
to refresh my bleak innards
with the scent of knowing
and being
familiar

but

it is this pool that crushes
flailing spirits
nearly asunder in a demons grin

this very body of fluidity
the flux continues to
human fossilization
pillaging the lost to unredeemed

sucks them beneath the oily ink husk
clogging the eye sockets with death
buried a myriad feet
under the slick foam surface
like a coal stained tomb

it mesmerizes me
with its deep soulless orbs
of greasy blind deceit

ancient whispers of
“Come to me”
caught on a chilled wind

but I
stumble
lids steel and iron tipped
but forced somehow to open
to SEE this duplicity of
alive and dead

my spirit yearns but I am stronger
to my knees I fall
fear digs claws inside my soul
already bruised and beaten

but I rise

I fight

and do not make that dive….
