Transmigration I – Pelagic Voids

Flames scorch the horizon

As I crawl towards the shore

A thousand lives I’ve endured

And more
See now, the sky’s afire

Ash falls, extinguishes

Sun light, eyes blinded by

Midnight, the absence of timeBehind there are only ghosts

Ahead islands of doubt

Against this tide there is only submission

The anchor pulls me down

See now, the sky’s afire

Ash falls, extinguishes

Sun light, eyes blinded by

Midnight, the absence of timeAeons pass in the blackness

Pelagic void of vitalityYet the will gathers slowly to becomeSeconds scrape by like a glacier

Silence chimes the hour of infinityThis shroud and sinew, rotting forever

Flesh to dust, to depths, to nothingnessYet the will gathers slowly to becomeIn twisting fathoms, the self holds together

In depths of memory, resolve grinds against timeAnd when the blaze has long gone cold

And surging waves are quelled

To form surface, crystalline

Mirror of a sanguine sky

I live again
