Soul

Hard nut to crack into

Shelled her thin skin from you

Hair-line fractures into the womb

 

Hell bends the life line we tread

further from our pledge

 

Inscrutable feud

 

Hard nut to crack into

Forged his thick head for you

Hair-line cracks refracts the light to hide

 

Hell bends the life line we tread

further from our pledge

 

In wavering hues

 

This round with fate

We fight to breathe

From off the shore

I watched it drift from me

These longest days

(These days in which we fall)

When we fall

(From off the bluff unto)

Swollen seas

(Lurching at me)

Cold blitzkrieg

(I finally find myself)

Clean

 

A golden opportunity to erase what’s been deemed

off colored, so soiled, and obscene

But the cadence, beloved, begins to beat

Saved by the sweet melodies you bring from

the fathoms of the soul

 

Don’t lose faith

Sworn essence

An insuperable lonely soul

 

Don’t give up

Don’t let go

Fiery souls

lunge unto the sultry flowering of hope

 

In the fathoms of the soul
