On My Way

Pierce the night with reptilian eyes,
Push the darkness behind torpid lies.
Juxtaposed within fragile light,
Life is voracious and will draw you in to its game, lead you like the piper toward the ledge; that cracked mantel of pallid complexion, alabaster smiles, frail, wafer thin; powdered repose and meek regrets, a heady injection of ego.

Gnawing away like fevered hyenas,
My thoughts tear flesh, crack bone;
Day old and useless dismembered carcase,
Man has always been the hunted and will always fall prey to sullen voices, victims of the day; time’s arrow pierces the mind of those that disregard the lives of others and slip snake like through spaces, avoiding confrontation.

Masochistic tendencies; inclined to sever,
The ties that bind you, shedding bloody tears,
Forever longing for more than this pallid expression,
On the faces of those who claim friendship, claim to know you more than you know yourself; driven to limits, exhausted and fatigued, everything falls away and now your naked; senseless self expression, no meaning.

Languid emotions, reversal of fortune,
Wavering between fate and actuality -
The gnash of teeth, forlorn organs slippery
With self and hard fought fantasies that come and go. The pressure builds toward release, how hard does one need to try in order to empty, find relief, from the push and pull of sexuality gone awry – opportunity missed.

So hot that it’s cold, the water burns,
And I like a flower wither away –
Some say life’s natural progression,
In the moment though, all I need is suspension, momentary isolated altered state – escape, only to return to this place, having learnt my many lessons, served my precious time, still no closer to the answer.
