Dark Light

One day sets for the gallows.
One day for rests we fear.
One shriek to shun all mellows.
One path to a farther near.

Sail away on many a memory,
seeking a lost time’s seal.
Folding consciousness into reverie.
Numbing wounds that never heal.

Wander a last forsaken earth,
shelter it is for falling gods.
Lonelier again by a willful girth,
mightier be your failing odds.

One day sets for the gallows.

One day for rests we fear.

One laugh against all hallows.

One spit to drown all dears.
