Gossamery Wind

i have seen the pale horse
unmask your face
color it white
till you blended with him
like a blank stare of the moon

his hooves beat in a heart
where silence now falls
as a gossamery wind
caught my breath
beneath the still of yours

his pace separated our worlds
through the eternal place of his own
your soul temporized within his passage
into partings of darkness
drawn through shades of eyes
that once could blink away fog
yet now lost the ability to do so
under the seal of fate

I have seen the indurated clay
that holds you tight
yet your shadows tramp my mind
as if it were a common street
these vivid memories hook my thoughts
as if fifty bucks could own my soul

curse you, even in death
your immortality still robs
choking me of every breath
my scars harbor your death
i close my eyes to these blocks of mind
your soul still owns...

I resurrect the pale horse, curse him
yet place him higher than the stone walls
or granite that bears your name
and kiss nothingness at your grave

my mind becomes calm again
but my roots remain twisted
beneath the silence of your wind
yet i curse you 
and i curse him
the same!
