the poet’s burden

I will venture downward
into the darkest thoughts of man;
free ideas which have sunken
to the deepest depths of quick sand

Thoughts which remain ancient and covered in tar,
these disfigured monsters repressed our glory.
The poet's burden is to travel further,
find these abominates, and tell their story.

walls of thoughts are crumbling

Food for the famine;
an ancient decay.
since my birth I was starved
I've grown weary everyday.

Buried under years of sand
sharp stings from rapid winds.
the desert sun kills all life,
with each itch, births new sins.

Raging on this ancient decay;
buckets of water to simmer the rot.
this stress; a war; an endless loop,
a curse to whomever opens this 
thought.

thoughts of you at 4am

serenity peaks as darkness evaporates;
the murky sky sends signals of light.
with sun rays reflecting of the shiny tar
in this blissful moment, all is right.

moments prior, it was only darkness,
the steamy nothingness absorbed all senses.
darkness threatened the hope of liberation,
as no man can penetrate its defenses.
