bowed to infinity – beneath black shroud

no face, no words

a vibrating wave of consciousness –
light and shadow

pulsing like the fluid beneath my ribs

it burns like my flesh and bone

a listless rage – a vengeful suicide – ego death

without pain – dematerialize – spiraling universes
a vacuous reflection – strung in sync

contemplate your worth

forgotten values entrenched in selfishness

buried beneath – exhume yourself

your hands grip the dirt


from Second Perception, released August 15, 2014
