Desire to know exactly what you have seen yet not known
A brazen embrace
Kissing deaths inviting lips
Selling your soul beyond the path of resurrection
To feel for one day only, the golden light burn by my skin
Too long have I been sealed away
Too long abandoned
My crowning glory stripped
Every memory shattered

Desire to shed my every inhibition
To rip of my clothes
To bask in the moonlight
Free, wild to roam
One with the world
Centuries should pass
No civilization to interrupt
My thought nor my dreams nor
My tranquil haven shall it starve

In this world so mechanical
Prewritten, a fiend
Supposedly guiding, our minds, willing it free.
Unwitting, we follow
Like birds by the sea
Our intellect bound
Shackled and ridden with fear and no dreams
The whip sears skin, bones broken we bleed
Brainwashed into believing, a higher power we need

Wild abandon
I relish the being
Carnal and sensuous
Ethereal it gleams
Voracious, electable a feast shall it lay
Freedom, such a deep desire it shows where our “civilization” fades.
Wicked a plight, too glorious to extinguish
Its fiery vengeance
My thirst it quenches

Desired, my reprieve
Seems suddenly to have ended
It walks me back
Sore, maliciously unrepentant
Its claws it sinks
To the grey of my soul
Beaming me back to what civilization
In its crudest form holds.
