Phantom Ashes

Cosmic Ashes

Being gone, as the light of the stars
A ghost illumination in the witching hours
I, abhorring the interstellar sex, wait
To expire from this ‘home’,
Through wind and rust.
In little specks of ash and dust,
Dissolving from my minion of mind
Out from the skin of imprisonment
The fading ripples of adoration,
Like everything of matter, drift to die
In an illimitable empty blackness,
Far beyond the conceivable cosmos

Astral Ashes

The astral mind scatters
With the falling meteors
As Eye enter this scorching Earth
Though wind’s oblivion.

Words die in ashes.
Feelings, crumble
Through woven smoke.
Lay me unearthed

And so the luminosity exists her
Inside the nebula of Eye
Binary illusions desist me
Suffer me to singularity

Her fantasies of Eye
Plague the sunken
Waters of her nostalgia
Timeless empress,
Birth her astray these shadows

When Eye filters through the clouds,
Recreated, stripped of dark matter
And I fall on her shoulder as rain,
Will she recognize my touch?

Earthen Ashes


The smoked breath sways
In the astronomical wind,
Through burning words
Exhaling to reconcile
This broken amity

Eye opens up my head
With suffocating fingertips
And lets out all of my sighs.
Oxygen flows in and fills,
But without my brother
My fingers are gloved still,
Holding on to a cigarette,
That’s been ashed to the filter


I swim through my father’s ocean
Exhausting through the same waves
The inherent spawn of a drowner
Boards the seeking vessel of being

A birth of a beautiful creation
Earth, love her nativity,
Be gentle in her growth
May her self never be sought
and waters shallow on her heart
When she knows who Eye is,
From creator to created,
Let the wind carry these ashes softly away
