What I Asked For

Days born of music, days born of silence. Dawn and fervor, newly-wed, promised me a day. People, rushing like a beehive, trembling, like atoms, myself among them. At noon, power overwhelms me, the sun – ever present, taken for granted. Later, a heaviness in my feet. Exhausted, expired. I perished in the night. Stripped of […]

Embrace Me

Yes, I will go alone, but there is the wind to keep me company. And the rain. Clothes clenched tightly, to welcome the storm. In the loudest screams, deaf silence. A moment to last a lifetime, worthy of song. The road starts at my doorstep, the vast expanse, the great journey. The hearth, too, is […]

Free Will

I will toil along my steed. The price of living is self-sacrifice. Why do I hesitate? To draw that upward sign on my forehead, war paint at a time of peace. To become nothing, to dissolve, an empty vessel. In life, trust no one, and keep quiet. Comfort in reclusion. Cause and effect – a […]

Wunjo

I am not a tyrant, my promise is sweet. Man of my word, you can trust me. Here, take my hand. I have a story to tell. One that will enrich you, make you greater. That is what you long to be, is it not? Large, you will become. Vast. A pillar of enormity. I […]

Words in Parting

A final word before departing. To one who lives in the world, personal life and death are certain. Life cannot be held forever, so its high reward must be protected, nurtured, prayed for, fought for, welcomed, and treated as a guest. Death is a great teacher.  The frailty of man. Anything can be taken. Nothing […]

Grey Wolf Speaks

Rome was not, built in a day. But the dream of it was. So was I. Single blessing, carved in stone. Othala, heritage, ancestral home. In my heart, a place to belong. Governor, of myself. Knight of the Rose Valley. Knight of low renown. Rose-ash, withered. So I dreamt, of a hole in the ground, […]

Wolf-Man

Concise, unclear, wordy – all clear. State of life, state of death, everything moves. Variable, what is static, Schrödinger’s truth. Rambling man, homeless man, hungry man. None of us are orphaned. Bastardized world, we are not of you. Spoke to all souls – far and near. All recognize my tongue, разумеш? Speak in riddles, figure […]

Standing Man – Part II

Now it is me who will end, the Cycle. And break the wheel. As a child I drove, carts, pulled reins, driven along old, broken roads. Born of dirt, of mud, a pit of destiny. Pulled myself out by my own strength, and the great Lord. Broken people, broken memories unfold. All in terrible roles, […]

I Know

Scorched earth, leaving for the heavens. Firdaus, Paradise. I sought your peace. Paradise lost, I am still here. Requiescat in pace. Life, born of high fever. Lust and anger, broken, a mind that is shaken, troubled. I was not the victim, the poor soul, drenched in blood, and pain. Instead, I was a keen voice, […]

The Return of Baldr

Boundaries crossed, fear at the heart of man. Silence, the cure of rulers. Calm, black night. Man and the cosmos. A soul and his creator. Your touch is sustenance. A high Gate. Beyond – the Promise. A path, a Path of memory. If I am not to take it, then why is it there? It […]
