And she says it could be worse …

It burns hot, bright and white,
turning from white to red,
like my sheets,
as my flame is extinguished.

As my anger, as the sun,
kissing the bloody clouds,
my eyes kiss the skies.

Her eyes dilated in disbelief
My hand reaching for its fleeting light.
Her hands reaching for the light
the light fleeting, the lie fleeting.

As she prays to those priests,
in this temple of disease.
Heartbeats hammering at the sight
As she kneels to the syringe,
in this temple of death.
Heartbeats hammering at the sight
Name date, chisel and stone
extra systoles

Heartbeats hammering at the sight
My inner chime beating.
Extra systoles, diastoles.
Her vacant stare distorted.
The mantra of silence repeated.

I may die, he observes.
Cause they know and we trust
I have war in myself
Going on if you will

I can fight for a while
Can you stay with me now?

All my hope and my time
Shrinking quick
Deep inside

Like a bandage,
the vision unfolds.
Painful rancid rotting.
But I Nourished…

this lie for so long.
but maybe I could linger some more.
Some more, not forever.

Not even light can escape
the dark hunger of fresh tombs
but maybe I could linger some more
On this event horizon

Some more not forever

Could you hook me to another machine?
