darkness swirls within my mind
losing track of place and time
do i ever listen to the sky
wander far throughout the world
magick here in written word
do i ever speak any but a lie
more behind this mask then mask there is not
confusion rampant - hot cold and cold hot
insanity revels in the entropy of me
my demons scream and cower and flee
for they are what they are by their nature
and i am what i am by my choice
what does that tell you of virtue?
of the powers of the human mind and voice.
honestly don't know or care but sometimes wonder why
elusive little melody tearing at my mind
staring fate in the eye and screaming in pain
is any of it worth it, the game worth the gain?
demons dark and angels light
give unto me the horrid sight
ask not for truth for 'tis only fear
wish not for illusion 'tis all too near
sight of ages, vision beyond
ears of ancients, hearing long gone
dance and sing the longlost song
of the good, the bad, the right, and the wrong
swirling within the darkness now
our places have turned - but how?
questions never answered are best left unasked
the wheel of fate spins within any soul
it merely slow and speeds at times
yet no matter the pace is always whole
"whysper, shimmer, and whysper true
my name is anna, who are you?"
fae just smiles and dances about
"i'm your doom, silly clout"
i scowl and turn away from the fae
she flits back around "no sorrow today"
i smile, ever sad, as she darts all around
she is my freedom yet through her i am bound
inspiration a gift or a curse or just stolen
my faeries love the feel of my mind
the darknesss swirls again
the wheel has changed
the light has aged
the song pulsates in its rythym
and i dance to mine
the stars and moon and sun all sing
to the day and year of the lost reckoning
all is lost and never is found
from the fire to the waves and the sky to the ground
much here is not there
and if you understand
you'll nod and smile
and come. take my hand...
