Love Thyself


A twinge in his gut

A shiver on his skin

Every hair on the back of his neck stood on end

A whole new kind of invisible, to see beyond today into tomorrow

Vision misting

Bombarded with glimpses of a future riddled with chaos

He saw Death, stretching forward into forever

Never ending

A snaking white beast looping into a ring

Consuming itself

Tearing teeth

Drawing blood

Red as the finest Sangiovese

Bleeding into the fabric of reality

Staining it

Time destroying itself until there was nothing left

Howling emptiness

But you can Break the cycle

You can Light the flame

You can Sing the song forevermore

So that we may banish the darkness

Cleanse the stain

And live in fear nevermore

Love thyself
