Presence

presence

Quieter nights with apparel ranged
Hidden behind illness of change
A season gained in loss of heart
Hollow each and limited art
Where blood screams of cold
By the river on moonlit side
Misfortune our intimate
Cursed before in selfish rage
And later brotherly gaze
Conversed breathing pictures
Forgotten in several time
And selves never cast
Enough then perhaps better
Open skies endless here
More than that was assumed
Before disease shielded escaped
Leaving behind just the page
In blank visions to stare
All that falls shall be true
Hence to own shadows in lights
Designs and rich prophecies
Rising cornered each too high
Borders to cages all comply
Meek tonight the beast in shackles
Yet hopeful ears and eyes assemble
Collected whether walk or still
Always outsides that thrill
Certain then instincts praise
Moments as happen in days
A play in melody you seem
Mine to which notes bleed
Urging again to have shared
But your course granted dear
Step by step concealed in pace
Strategic beast to griffon form
His presence then upon a tree
Ancient wisdom green
To blue shrills upon those who tell
And darker than your gold
Trophies shining placed on hands
Proud then this figure you hold
And goddess some clever clothes
I grasp transparent
Could use this once more
For I often get tired of trees
Should find your gold to sit.
