Lies together
in a bed of truth and shame
growth is pain
enshrouded by the veil of now
crust of bread
empty cup
a heart of bone and lead
a spoon to remove your eyes
a box to carry them
swallow the poison
devour your end
the snake is your only friend
the fangs, your salvation

Martyred youth
mangled bruised
down to size
brass tacks
feelings as facts

The gloves must come off
remove the skin
reform begins, overtaken
waves of emotional carnage
atone, ignite from within
carries the weight
of race memory
balanced impressions
and obsessions
courting your death
grinding your teeth
empty your head into the void

Twisting, turning on it's head
the worm emerges
teeth grind at your flesh
turn your bones to mush
the dirt worships,
accepts your vessel

Instant obliteration
catatonic repose
mortal coil
separation from self
grasp at the Godhead
total immersion
into the void
let go of the unknown
go forth, atone
in absolute detachment
we are not alone...
