No Eyelids


The secretive nature of mankind

journeys into mundane maelstrom which

weeping together spirals and entwines

and honors only darkness and the witch.


Delving through martyrdom matters,

our ceaseless souls trying to make meaning.

Lost love is still triumphant and gleeming

and even so paints the remniscent patterns.


Breath becomes our only hope, as our bones

wither and silence themselves thinking,

"The air is enough life force for our growth,"

especially spiritually as the brink


of insignificance compels nature to

bless inheritance towards new pure stuff

and a day of bright beginning -- but blur

ever stifles us and creates a grudge.
