beneath the veil
the inkwell bled
the word farewell to parchment sped
red wine of disclosure spilled
to all of those who wished him ill
the mystic quill within his palm
had been accused of wishing harm
his heart had sunken at the news
the drunken lies of lips that mused
of ways to prove dishonesty
and other crude atrocities
beneath the veil
the inkwell bled
eschewed of tenebrosity
his life seemed way too short for animosity
besides to seek divorce from deep remorse
relieved his thoughts wherein he sought
to glean the source of purest prophecy
he sought to glean the source of purest prophecy
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
the blackest night
had long since passed
since vessel sailed at halfway mast
to distant tides through waters calmed
in honour of the fallen
thus while the skies were overcast
his measured breath contested last
at death’s request
the inkwell bled
still life became his calling
ill-timed demise
nowise the prize
hereby assigned
the sight to write
to fight for light
find shade to braid
revitalise
the beta waves
.
to die for art
with wild and brave
to bleed true heart
beneath the veil
to lift his reddened palms and say
i wish to see no harm prevail
.
to live and breathe deliberately
inkwell bled felicitously
wishing only to negate to hate
relate to open space
appropriate to tone and shade
of love felt unconditionally
love felt unconditionally
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
to die for art
with wild and brave
would shine a light
through rising waves
enticing rays of hope afloat
with eyes ablaze the poet wrote
admiring gaze
unbroken flow
devising ways for broken bones to go for broke abiding pain
remain the night and heal
this hiding place a space to thrive
reminding braves to take a dive
in blindest faith a dying race can find a way to feel
.
the mystic quill within his palm
the word farewell crossed out
the scribe then wept the treasured tears
sincerely blessed devout
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
calling all occupants of planet earth to scatter seed
and have a word with every nagging burden courting travesty
.
the blackest night
had long since passed
since vessel sailed at halfway mast
to distant tides through waters calmed
in honour of the fallen
thus while the skies were overcast
his measured breath contested last
at death’s request
the inkwell bled
still life became his calling
.
beneath the veil
the inkwell bled
a pile of leaves to rest his head
felt home without a shadow of a doubt
this brought about
this brought about
this brought about
this brought about
this brought about the end of forty days and nights of drought
.
