The fallacy of me

A fallickle man torn deeply at the seams, 

Clocks flowing backward, 

I am but the shadowed after-image of the yet foreseen. 

 

The desolate paths etched in green and blue, 

Make way for the emperor, 

That which is me. 

 

Shallow and hollow shells, 

I do not see life in them,  

For the depravity of man fell solely on my shoulder,

It seems. 

 

Gothic be the day when I stepped into the brushery of that dream, 

To stand below the ocean,  

Where I could not be seen. 

 

I grip the strands desperately through this effervescent dream,  

But those who wake cannot see the afterimage of me, 

Torn delicately from the seam.
