poetry i have published #8


Walking the divide
Destruction and salvation
Edge of the blade
Life and death 

The last embers of hope dwindle
In the luminescent night
The clocks keep ticking
Counting down to my demise

I told them I would leave
When everything was broken
And darkness came flooding in
Vanquishing the light

Unfastened, Unimpeded
something,
Made me falter
Couldn’t be ignored

Resurrection of the saviour
Corrupted crusader
To the fray
Autogenous

A theatre of memories
Permeate
Frayed edges, distorted
From endless repetition

Repercussions
Should’ve beens
Perceived control
Saudade

Then a singularity
Glowing,
Igniting the inferno
Within

The chasm
Alluring, enticing
Recedes, the past
Into the background

Falling, but landing
On two feet, unstable
Wandering back to
Incandescence
