I’m the shadow of the man ahead of me
one day I’ll catch him, and that will be the end of me.

LIFE

Life is become
a turbid test

the violet flames
burn my being

a cactus tale
midst sapping pleasures

Power of her gaze

Her gaze
Singes my heart
Like the flames
Do an earthen pot
And the scar
Left behind
Is just another
Of those aligned
In the hollows
Of my mind

Forged in the Stars

We Are…
Forged in the stars, the molten core.
Flames dance, consume, roar.
Desires swirl, burn, soar.
Eternal.
