Broken Bows

While as getting lost aneath the truth betwixt; postmortems lines....

Shall I engage to entangle myself once more within these enlivened

Embodiments, whom wish to cast me into their unblinking morticious eyes?!

Projecting melancholy tears; this enigma chained unto its own bend and bites

Misconceived, scripted sights within interpretatives thorns and now I find  

Myself pressed, to be nailed unto their judgmentals crucifying cross....

Why; but I know why? As if I am indebted unto they this life of mine yet, how?

O wretched flesh so imperfect you are amid these constant falls as they

Whom close their eyes to look away; that darkness it may be, although

Spawned from the very irony of its own amissful night in poisoned arrows....


....“And Broken Bows!?”

    poisoned arrows.... cast of broken bows, I might add , fulfilling the fad of knows not what... spondees the irony of its own amissful night. Ha, but the truth betwixt postmortem lines.. gives reality to the valued finish, replenish... replenish, eagle's flight, away.. away. Agape, agape, Thanks John for stopping by. Agape, Moses

    yes and crucify they will and crucify they must. to justify themselves from their own lives of sin.
