brink of beyond

tangerine slashed crimson skies

golden rays blink on the horizon

silence engulfs the sooty night

arise murderous moon

chase furtive shadows

meander illusory paths

of a torn and troubled mind

to the bleeding ruins of me

standing at the precipice

perilous oblivion

turbulent waters drum

upon granite rocks

ruminations, whispering torments

fly away, fly away now

loosening tenuous grip of reality

all the stars in the sky

see me wavering
