The Night Eternal

The walls of a poem like the foldin' of wings!

They burn through the base of the skull!

Under the eyelids the night eternal!

Down fell the city of words

The blackness throbbin'

Foul & unrestrained

Under the seafloor!

Against the white sand

Where the land has been drinkin'

All our blood & regret

Our words are like quicksand!

Against the endless sky

The poisonous darkness!

In solid silence

Like rivers of ice!

We burn like blindin' fires

In the void of my spirit!

Deep in the lungs of Hell to sink like lead!

In the void of my spirit

Deep in the lungs of hell

Trace-less through the air!
