Flesh is torn
A soul is blown
Once upon a day
Upon immutable days
In a moment
but a passing moment
An agonising howl
thrusts into your bowel
Say you
Oh Lord and Master of realms
Of ever hovering peer
Overlooking what you don’t see
What you ignore seeing
Your lost shard
Stranded inside a forge
Buried deep into time
the Grim reality
Inflicting on you fierce strikes…
Say you
Oh Lord and Master of men
Of wide-open peer
Do you see
The life reborn
In disquiet
And infinity
While you
Peer down at this vision!
