Grave Thy Companion

GRAVE THY COMPANION
Fiery shadow claw deep the surface of life  Life wrought destructive taste – embraced by a boy destined to slay the man They all preached oh how he could be – he could be - he could be; fuck them allThey see not thy reflection gazing back predatory eyes gleaming

Hushed thoughts that scream Relief is isolated
Gallop good companion – if thy reach me -  penny these tortured eyes
I have but to accompany thy self To the gates of hell we stride forth
I march in line trembling detour
He screams; I abide the order It is just that; disastrous order
Hollowed prints of those before me, embrace the gravel with a silence all could hear
The gates call – I lend my ear The movement is breached – we find our eternal sleep
Thy grave is my companion – the silence none could hear I’ve lent this demon all future years

This music to my ears, what pleasure my calloused torn hands brought to the here, introduced to the now. This farm is my field of harvest. My spirit rich in reward to what it has sown. Isn’t this….” The porch chatters, interrupting his pure thoughts, more music to his ears, the trample of h…
