Prince of Darkness scanned 101219


Prince Whom Darkness Prints

Globe that twists and swirls the depths of globe
Needle thrusts at heaven – dark’s needle.
Wheedle built from Hell’s dev’lish wheedle
Trove of darkness cached as treasure trove

Wasted hungry fish, starved, thin-waisted
Needs to consume light of life; black needs
Freed shadow bites eats bleeds, evil freed
Tastes dark morsels for deep tainted tastes

Then who’s found gnawing my dark heart? Then
Black meets vacuum’s gaze and all goes black
When my eyes raise to the mirror, when
Back not to grace, lost unknown path back

Laments are echoes, unheard laments
Axed sounds of light are faint, then fade, axed
