the darkest frame takes the moon mist and hues rise in blues traces from a lunacy glow follow a hand with delicate flow this flickering serene movement comes and goes as a wing unfolds graceful, staggering motions in perfection magnificent to behold in the dark night I search through perfection in the light of a star charmed to the point of complete and divine dreams finally come and you are still mine our happily ever after still has time moments chase away this place of illusion life wakes and takes you again the crown of an angel falls through all that I am we are bound a heart to a beat heart of mine is the one left behind an essence that has never known unbroken the will of my single soul believes the darkest of the damned can be redeemed I am eluded a slave to each breath’s inception works the same as expectation denial sits upright complete with begging black is black there is no semblance it is the smallest grasp of poison seeping to the center mass of my gravity always reaching and touching ever still this core carved out piece by piece a sliver of the least has outlived at all cost letting go bows down to enormous regret still I can see this angel of mine awaits for what will be supra separation from this broken living space closer to a revenant heart leading to a state of grace
Terry D’Arcy-Ryan
