Plunge towards silver gate Transparent ether cloaks Cerulean portal mouth Enswathed in amniotic cell Ocean! Mother, mind, spirit Serene pelagial womb Limbs swell like stalactites Over glacial ages grown immense FORGET Antique fascination, transfixed in shimmering thrall Wordless cries from ageless depths beckon to us all Annihilate the body, approach pure consciousness From inky depths, tendrils unfurl, sentient caress As within so without Thence we came, and thence we shall return. Oceanic embryo dormant within us all Struggled, gasping into language Unacknowledged, speaks from the abyss Eldritch entities glowing, bejewelled Light the depths of slumbering mind Megafaunal ancestors Relics of bygone epochs Lingering in chambers Lightless floors of silent seas Bathynomus giganteus Architeuthis dux Macrocheira kaempferi Anoplogaster cornuta Twilight Midnight Abyssal Hadal
Reliquary 11:49
Your only presence is in absence The sun is missing from the sky My only utterances silence Truth a bath brimming with lies My only hopes & dreams are nightmares Bare feet meet soil in the night My only gospel’s binding threadbare Feet find the cellar and the flood’s head-height Each shining memory paves over the last Buried and vaulted consigned to the past Dancing irreverent on the graves of the old Defacing their epitaph before they've grown cold A door in my mind You wait behind A room in my mind And you’re dying inside A room in my mind You’re festering inside Scratching at the mortar Nails torn from skin The relic at the altar An adored phantom limb Buried beneath the floor​​ An opaque recess Rattling at the door Yearning for access So grandiose in her repose So sacred now her bed No funeral for stillborn words Unfledged, unheard, unsaid Exhume you from the reliquary Prepare a coffin lined with lead Now with these words I banish you From that room inside my head I held you close, so close that I could see beneath your skin But the savage march of time Petrified your skin, and mine Only salt for succour, embers grey within​ Her tongue drips fire, My bones bloom ice
