worm's descent

worm's descent

regret your crucified torment
as my solitude cries tainted in rapture
your sweet touch grovels before these stained tears
death waltzes about these graves

the asylum summons the embittered void
lock up the yearning twilight concubine
faith cries vile fragments
as my icarus cries hollow impudence
and then descends

this torrential rain of tears engulfs the nebulous
vengeful crippled emotions lash out
then languish
writhe midnight terror beneath the sky’s cold fire
emptiness consumes these feebled passions

your touch eviscerates my infernal penance
my mask pales at gloomy deception
my prey lies weeping
a feral gossamer darkness
a shallow desperate requiem

blazing pinions recoil from murmuring decrepitude
wolves silent in nocturnal caresses
fated mortals taunt this blackened passion
their hunger scoffs at virginal despair

delicate treachery
thorns languish
this incessant psychosis calls forth
the unfathomable splendor
pyres run amuck through the whirling night
while loneliness plucks flowers from these dying tombs
