duality

By Noah Rymer



pressings of dead flowers

fragrant slight color dried

these burnt oaks dream

sky melting deep inside


midnight seeps into day

as blood blossoms into milk

flowers break violent harvest

pink petals swirling their ilk


spiraling into drained eyes

whiter than bone splinters

dark countenance their tinctures

pale visages severance lies


concentric cycles spinning

shadows over the cave walls

pagan dances of Walpurgis nights

Bacchanal lives lost in it all


eternal bliss caught in fragments frowned

shattered like arcs of lightning tall

over glass sensually struck down

cast like Lucifer gaining his loveless crown


the joy and the pain exist inseparable

I sigh for it all for those lost within

such things but our own original sins

ourselves irreparably lain and destroyed
