"Two Worlds Split" One world fell into unlit hues black swallows black dogs their consort murderous their crows black wings of darkest blue dark knight, their oceans locked in another's, lost eternally, dark nighted corralling the purple heart bruised, deadly nightshades pierce the shadows hiding under the eyes holding Neptune like Morpheus' waterfalls the dark things shine inside, outside, the matter lost in translation where others dwell in dreams landing easily like flies in milk and honey bathed in imagined notions their sweet accolades gilded flummeries sugar-coated licked along the curved lines of a body rolling moist romance ships dipping skin under sails billowing sheets caressing smiles pinned and bound unmercifully against rosy crux mind stripped naked to the mast found - to be less than and sorely wanting, unaware their life kissed they’re marked for other waves and sure certainties baring unsound sound advice courts and jesters courting jesters made for muted music; mandrake magicians a maze amusing muses in the high tide life they swim visions blissfully unaware in the lost time oceans where deeper things swim unprotected under those treading water just missed in the forever these ones, fanciful and blessed like saints they be, ne’er a foot pierced by wormwood thorn not cursed nor seeking sanctuary through written word misfits are discovered by those the shade of envy curling in their veins the colour of absinthe vengeance kisses the blarney wood bees dripping honey from their sting, flutter around butterflies with poison fangs, all’s a dance for them to sweetly tear the tattooed walls like parchment scattered on Winter’s frozen breeze confetti blithely disregarded ripped with glee they split the other’s world in two and turn it on its side as above so below clandestine heartaches writing lullabies across the moon gazing at angels through the eyes of a second the world of other’s split in two (LadyLabyrinth / 2021) "Oblivion"/M83 (Susanne Sundor) "No, no, no, no! Come, let's away to prison: We two alone will sing like birds i' the cage: When thou dost ask me blessing, I'll kneel down, And ask of thee forgiveness: so we'll live, And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues Talk of court news; and we'll talk with them too, Who loses and who wins; who's in, who's out; And take upon's the mystery of things, As if we were God's spies: and we'll wear out, In a wall'd prison, packs and sects of great ones, that ebb and flow by the moon” "and in the night you hear me calling you hear me calling and in your dreams you see us falling you see us falling breathe in the light and say goodbye" “Oblivion”/ M83 (Susanne Sundor)
