He died in the Ark

 

He died in the Ark

Drowned in sailor suit

 A dropping deck  for pitch in flame

Not made of balance iron nor  dream round

 

He was the right man for marriage

Animals run one to the other

Unfit deformed

 

None of the women have names

Wives of sons

Sons of wives

The dress is torn

 

The flood honours extinction

Unclean, wrong

helen is finally faceless

Sad and  cut to the middle

 

We cannot fight this prince!

We cannot stand against this city!

 

Send Helen back to them

One day we too shall love

Bright under thunder   a beautiful girl in marriage is led away  by disappearing  fairy folk

 

Walled

Vague lantern near to death bed

An old man watches the peace

This is the cave

Blood Mage

Twisted Maleficarum turned abomination

desperately seeking a return to one's humanity.

Expelling demons,

pumping passion like the blood that summoned them.

 

Bleeding tears, sweating fears

soaked in trepidation.

 

Summon some feeling

no time for healing

when paint is just pain with

twin pronged brush strokes.

 

Tattered, trying, tonal
