Biological bacillus organisms left to rapidly rot…
Absorbefacient annihilation the pawns have brought,
The bacterium Bishops are pernicious in their plot…

Of the nuclear noxious nomads reaching hellion heights…
Agents of abrogation numbing...Read More

I stand there, poised, a statue,

While fitful, impetuous, tears force to submissive dirge
an enshrouded grey shadow within mine afflicted heart.
In ghastly, pallid emptiness; beguiling Azrael does cajoles.
"Ah, Tis only, immolation that can enchant and subdue Azrael."

Spidey Senses
As in my intuition tells to.
Suddenly my ears burst with disbelief.
Much goes around, hidden underneath.
Sometimes as I listen, the words seem unreal.
Through indirect innuendos.
Respectfully denies and smirking goes.
Riding along rolling with waves.
Spoken loud is truth.
Every breath is something.

disgracing underfoot Christ's redeeming blood
that which sanctified would not suffice
