In The Fields

I have slowly found my faith in the sands that once buried the saint of fire
For the insects have betrayed themselves in the wealth of carrion
I am no more their slave… not for nothing.
I will fear nothing; clarity becomes the storm that will free my soul
And the sun will forget my face
As twilight becomes the robe of my desire

Silence beckons the steel chaos within, and I feel the chains
My voice is a thunder
Which for far too long has remained in the depths
And I will pour from this lonely shadow as a gale
May the winds find the echo of a lost spirit who has found her wings
And lay the road once more that I trod so long ago

The lady of winter shall shed her tears,
As summer’s flower shall dream its dreams upon the night
For the seas of forever shall not be forgotten by my eyes
They behold the constant flow of my passage throughout,
Where burden shall rescind to the sky
In the brevity that is my sullen wake

My soul shall invoke the power of these tears
For I have shed them in the dew and in the tempest which brought the pain
The hourglass has brought screams of betrayal and sighs of delight
Wherewith I have pounded my fists upon the ash
But upon this fire, I shall awaken my fate,
And burn in the fields of a defiant strength

As I Stood Watching the Fire

“Close my eyes
And open my soul
These are the days of my youth
Though my body grows old”

Never did tears burn so fresh
As from the fount of your eyes
Which stared long and hard toward the end of the valley
Testing the dragon’s faith
As he stood sharpening fangs of lusting fury
To hurl at warrior’s end

Yet we stood firm in our alliance
Casting shadows where saints dared not shine
Treading deadlier than the heights of Olympus
And deeper than the depths of Poseidon’s kiss
For we drank the blood of strength
And returned, thirsty for more

It was you who washed my tears with burning flame
And shunned the light with your blinding eyes
For you were a thousand stars brighter than our foe
With all his force and flame
Which we withstood
While burying our own death

I stood young
Watching the fire
Time fled
And you added a day
Yet for all you are, you remain a secret to destiny
For the chains no longer bind your feet

Hands which writhed in anguish
Fought fiercer than the wind which screamed your name
I stood in awe
As your beauty burned away the scales
And we consumed the feast of the flame
Toasting another day’s journey in defiance

“Open my soul
And clear the mirror’s eyes
For today I was a child
Learning how to fight.”
