A Reclamation of Sentiment

Wed, 05/09/2018 - 21:59 -- TWELCH

Hanging from the edge of the world

A grip on this reality waning

A river in flight and a flowing sky


An upside down

My celestial home

This is the place where magic lives


Far from the excess of man

I escape into this refuge of wonder

My mind a boat on a sea of grandeur


Rising and falling with the whim of favor

Wandering through the forbidden forest of me

The snake of complacency a faint whisper in the distance


I yell into the abyss of darkness

The silence rolls on in eternal shame


Light the path through the ruins of doubt

A perilous journey through the realm of Hades

Out from the other side there is calm


Through the misadventures the magic still lasts

Once again, my mind is a boat on a sea of grandeur

Welcoming the darkness before the light
