We simmer Beneath a façade In calmed moment As we banter within, Deciding upon face To reveal To those watching To those waiting.
I. A fickle princess Sat upon the throne, Crown tilted Jewels dulled in comparison To smiles around.
Bonfires were ablaze. The scent of smoke wafted through the air. Despite the thick clouds that billowed forth, the moon and stars were all easily discerned in the night sky. They bathed the earth in an eerie glow, amplifying the sounds of the chants that chorused down the streets.
Life is mass- A running tape, Of collected images, Sunsets to sunrise- Nightmare Through daydream sweat. A collection
I Earth groans, A monster's sound From below As humans watch channels Flicker, flicker As light goes. Rain? Not yet.
There's a lifeBehind a hidden door, That can't be found in the daylight Where faces fade and masks glow. It's in the bottom of an ocean
There was a current, In the way the words flowed, The way they passed through the air, Falling like the red and gold leaves
The pixelated mess Transformed the natural Blurring trees With the metal And crumbling the structure Created by ritual.
