Fleeing Realms

Bluebells tumbling along the floor
Dimly lit bursting divinity
Nights without a moon
Glass eye of the blind sky
Nestled upon the hope of vintage wind
The cancers cry and widows sigh
There is no rest in your eyes
Cradles your keynote flame
Sounding the words you long to say
Round in your mouth the theme
The wind sweeping the streets
You must be the pointing star
In this cloudy downtown pride
Blessed journal in bare feet
Placid pouring your remarks
Wings to speed discovery
Unleash my limits to acclaim
Epic merging lives enrage
Covert tribute to insist
I rise from ocean floor
Smoke rising from the pages
Shadows climb the crawling walls
The trickled bleeding insists I wish
For principles pleading
Fleeing realms of mutiny
My heart racing you home
Too much of myself to memorize
To explore my beached demands
And waste my screams on vices
While tribes proceed without me
Stunt my lies by proxy on deserted heart I share
Ripe with ribbons of only someone
