stormCaught in the middle of a storm.
What is believed to be sturdy granite
Turns out to be a crumbling sandstone.
The eye can not pierce the thick carapace that surrounds this larval mind
The metamorphic cerebellum contorts and transforms within
Thoughts, dreams, calculations
All is contained
None to be seen
None to be heard
Not before being carefully thought out
The storm rages on
Winds whipping away at what appears to be stone.
It is not until the underdeveloped is forcibly brought to light
That a brand new creature is born
and dies the same day.
Caught in the middle of a storm.
Caged birdFlight becomes unattainable.
Optics become milky and rotten.
Never to see the same visions again
as if closed off for too long in the darkness.
The deep inky caverns of the mind
of a mind gone cataclysmic.
Once filled to the brim with hope.
There is nothing left where the Lambency once prevailed.
Lamentable, Miserable, Painful
The caged bird no longer sings.
All this life of yours
For a meaning
For a rerason for all this
Haven't you, my darling?
So many years i dug deep inside
Thinking i must have been the problem
Believing that i was the reason i couldn't feel.
So much time it has been
You've finally caught it.
This Guilded pair of wings
Could it be, my sweetness?
I had to shed all that was comfortable
So i could see that i was not the problem
It all just took one glance.
Then aren't you glad, my glistening star
You had the chance to choose
You chose right
When i asked yoou sleep or death.
You neglected to answer.
It's been agesMy darling girl
It has been ages since we have spoken
What path have you fallowed to bring you back to my doorstep?
Like a wall piled high with heavy cinderblocks
Doubts, fears, shortcomings
I hit i dead end and had to come back
I see it within you
That shining light
Why can't you just let it guide you?
I am blocked at every turn
by friend or foe
Are you sure it is not you who has built this wall
My eternal love?
You have caged yourself
If it were but a cage
just starve the body till it grows thin enough to slip between
No this is far more sturdy a thing.
shining gilded star
Must every solution involve distruction?
To move on i must leave behind.
To progress i must furst step back
To move forward you must gain momentum
I haven't the strength
Build your own strength on the shoulder of another

If there were to have ever been so miserable and a cold night that could freeze flesh to the very bone, it would have been this one.
If there were ever a wind so sharp it could make its way through any cloth known to man, it would have been this one.
If there were to have been skies as grey and devoid of life as if risen, lurching frightfully and zombified, back from the dead. You would need not look further.
Swift, frigid air seemingly stealing and freezing the very moisture within the nostrils of pedestrians as they stroll shivering down the dimly lit streets.
Dry and delicate flurries hover in waves over the dark pavement as if to create an ocean of frozen floating mist with only an occasional break in the waves to allow the eye to peer underneath.
A city in the freezer, although a freezer is usually found to be warmer.
Cold that would bond flesh to metal.
Cold that would blacken toes and fingers.
Cold that would harden the soil.
Cold that would choke the life out of an un
It's OkWhat have you done this time my pet?
Your eyes are bright and conflicted once more as you turn up in my lap today.
Are you in need of conference with an old friend?
I feel I am at a loss for words this day
I need to clear a head
A head that no longer is infected
The infection has passed my lover!
I see it in your eyes they are as they had been
OH, back when i first loved you.
Oh but if you were only mine again.
But I am yours...
Don't you see?
I always have been
I always will
You and i are the same
My heart soars
You have again returned
A brilliant and crackling a spectacle
Riding the winds of change
More beautiful and resilient than any simple flaming bird.
And my love is forever yours old friend for standing beside me
For making me choose
And though i did not utter the words
You knew me
Because you are me
But you need me once more do you not?
You would not have come
If this was not so my sweet
This is true
But i wish not to spoil the moment
If i may just stay a wh
