Cascading Depths

Incessantly deep – that’s what it was
A vibrant lake with an uncommon cause

Unlike a dull scene from a black and white movie
A pool of rainbows swirled and existed solely to be

A mirthless abyss bound it’s deft endless vertical
As perplexed wells sang in a stormy silent spectacle

How long have we glided on this scaled emerald snakeway?
Asked the guests to the Keeper of Realms at the end of their day

Across the Bridge of Sighs lies a stone stairway that’s steep
Moist and massacred with moss where sullen mermaids weep

While we cascade into the deep depths of indignation
We find that fear has followed this sensory perception

Life, times and people in simple black and white we cannot weigh
For all of us are but carbon atoms resonating in shades of grey

Fret not, the Wizard of Pause guides us at the end of our journey
For he has lived his life with every moment spanning an eternity

There lies the black dragon of chaos in it’s undisturbed sleep
For eons laid motionless awaiting a new harvest’s reap

Behind the veil of grace what we see are movements inside
Of some long forgotten folklore beast draped within a black hyde

The Sun suddenly sets in slumber into a pitch black lack
All mythical creatures now reign free as our blind eyes slack

Hands extend outward
As we get pulled inward

Bird Of Fire

A phoenix birthed from a charred heart
From the skies it flew down to play a part

It tought resilience through its choicest tears
Fanned the flames away off of all your fears

The orange wings spread in distance wide
Embracing the burnt-heart within it’s hyde

A life filled with perpetual neo-negativity
Will once again be cleansed with tenacity

A burning fire within fluctuates between strong and weak
A perseverance keeps resuscitating itself in a life that’s bleak

The Phoenix sheds it’s tears to foster this heart’s raging flame
The rejuvenated soul resumes to take part in your frivolous game

In stillness
In calmness
The heart beats again

The crucible of pain will always forge the strongest soul

A video of me playing random stuff on my guitar from about four years ago. Looking back , I keep wondering why I even went and got a haircut!
