Gate Wick

Tags: dark, love

Striking a lucifer to the gate wick
a song sung twilight serenade
of silence in my alto
lost verses I have sung
as the tallow drips

Death stalking my shadow
feeling it's cold breath
like fingers of mist
climbing a rung of dreams
from the womb to the dark

Over the nave of graves
and past linguists
of my poetry being carnal
through the eye of a cyclops
striking a lucifer to the gate wick
