Become
what you pretend,
observe, contact, befriend
Before you then: reflection spent
Begone

Begone!
You say to me
With nothing but your eyes
I wilt and acquiesce in shame
I go

Ahead
I see you shine.
Behind, your vacant eyes!
I haunt myself. Time fled since days
bygone.

The wind
It frightens me
Whistling through branches bare
Breaking the solemn silence mine
Alone

of crows,
raven brothers,
first to the bloody field
and last away, glutted with war,
no more.

Struggle
We do try to
live the life we came by,
without complaint or inner doubts
We lie.

Forgive
or forget to,
vestiges of mercy
long lost in worlds of punishment;
afflict!

Mercy
for first timers,
the confused, lost, broken.
Not for you who knew what you did.
Judgment.

By fools,
I chart my way.
Easy the path forward
whose pitfalls are paved by fallen.
Step on.
