The clearing light descries the horizon of a world liberated from judgment Mute and blind, unspoken and unconcealed Such is grace, such is chaos In which words, which words uncertain Ephemeral and incestuous Released from form, unwoven yet undisclosed No longer deny us meaning and salvation The clearing after all is darkness gone Toil and toil and foil against abyss Words begone I for an I, now see me, from within Toil and toil and moil towards a bliss Worlds become ...estrangement in vision, deception in its telling Reflection counterfeits radiance, Aegis of my Being only human, frail and in need To feel its warmth, but not its wrath Truth lies, in the safety of its shield The question remains, What compels the worm that feels no pain? The king is gone, the tower is crumbling The children unseeing, bastards of truth Lashing out, a faceless saviour in promising Hasn't the light set us free? I am Being eternal The city ablaze, no matter I am salvation! I am peace! unyielding Flow unto thy flames, searing skin Glowing, the world unbecoming These words sworn to my fealty I am being unto light The clearing is me Unconcealed Masks once unveiled avow no face no body... nobody Baring light shows darkness conquered within Toil and toil and foil against abyss Words begone Aye! you’re not I, your word is alien and cruel Toil and toil and moil towards our bliss Worlds become ...death enthralled

Formed by the chaos of shackled greed Beyond all reason in spite of its venerable spring Courage be cursed, my honour forfeit Hell haven I made: purgatory settled unto my name. I recognize this pretence I flee company Believed nothing could ever be left To bequeath unto other… I’ve faced the known world enough To behold the chasteness of its thoughts Becoming hardened, corrupting by your touch A venereal disease you’ve made of my word… Yet I feel… My innards set ablaze... Confined to a coward’s cold embrace. Cascading wild storms of rebellion Within the walls of my sanctum Beckoning in hopeless abandon Legions of voices to cry out: treason. In vain I’ve stayed my tongue in self-deception Silence: sole idol borne deadened my motions; Atrophy: the slow decay from grace Consuming its path to your heart [Consorting with pathos] You wither from within Weakness is found in the Cradled life you’ve sown your credence Eviscerate the light within Consecrate your word to worlds beyond… Dedicate your life to truth beyond Reborn No more… Muteness carries its own disease Fear ends here — release I must give rite to this sacrifice I owe myself life and the air we breathe Terror arises from the threat of perversion I foresee — Frail, sick minds will never seize [see]. A prodigal return Rended from the tyranny of other Let the fables of old begot, guide and shield Ingenuous spirits down from on high To foster the cynosures of being To descry the I that is I shrouded [thriving] in other Follow the light, the archetypes concealed Wrestle stifled shadows; strife is the germ of all freedom Stark symbols are sundered shards Shepherds aloft, above as stars Vagrant and fluent. Can we be held in blame To have fallen ensnared by the phantoms of our Halcyon days [daze]? We conceived ourselves as kings… Hark [Hwæt]! He whispers: I am here even now I am here, eden now I whisper back: I am here in this body I am here, this I vow I am here, naked [present] to your imminent might. Squandering noble genes estranged [in vain] We all must come to face the wyrm [wyrd] To foster the cynosures of being In defiance of ingrown, inbred selfspeech Bygone echoes, purge thy solipsism [despotism] Lapse in time from lethe through anamnesis Reaving the credence of peace by ways of dispassion The ironic disposition of this fated [sacred] kenosis I feel my end [name] renascent Can we be to blame To have fallen enamoured by the veil? De sang et de suie, puisse le verbe émerger [hériter] de cette genèse Weakness [meekness] is found in the Sheltered life you’ve sown your credence Eviscerate the light within Inseminate your words to worlds beyond… I Am
